An humorous game just for a change...
If you are a bit tired of dark manors, werewolves, curses, ghosts and asylums tragedies, you might enjoy the different atmosphere and the humour of this game, which is only apparently easy.
The graphic is a little old-fashioned and not very sophisticated, but it?s clear and pleasant, the characters are unpretentious but have an enjoyable self-irony, the voices are good.
The game is quite long and all seems to be perfect?but there are a couple of flaws, which might seriously disappoint many people
? The quizzes and mini-games cannot be skipped, so you have to remain stuck there until you solve them by yourself
? You have to finish a chapter before leaving the game, because your results are saved only in chapters, so if you didn?t finish completely a chapter, when you start playing again, you have to re-start that chapter from the beginning.
A part from that I recommend the game, which is definitely enjoyable.

This game was longer than most which was nice. The puzzles and HO scenes were all very different and didn't get boring. It was kind of hokey, and yet the story line kept me going right up until the end. I wish all games were like this one! You can only save at the end of chapters. The uniqueness of this game was refreshing.

This Game is Too Much Fun!
Of the 100 or so games I've played over the past 1.5 years, there has been maybe two or three that made me laugh out loud....this is one of them. Really funny and fun to play. The characters and voice overs are top-notch and make the game what it is...story is ok, but it doesn't matter here because you are enjoying the zany people, plants and animals. I know this will be a replay for me...and that is the biggest down side to HOG's...I don't replay them, except for a couple.
ps. Wonder how many people that played noticed the phallic symbols? Pretty obvious....what were the dev's thinking?

Cheesy graphics and cornball voice-overs make this game a hoot!
Yes, the graphics of this game are cheesy, however the story line is very cute, and the voice-overs are so goofy they make you laugh. I still laugh thinking about the dinosaur, and I haven't played the game in 2 years!
In any case, the game play was a lot of fun, with a great mixture of puzzles and interesting hidden object scenes.
An absolutely delightful game!

A "classic" game that stands up well against current games! Very well thought out story line, fun characters & challenging mini-games! Your eyes will love it & your brain will get a nice little work out! Likely it will go straight to your "replay this!" list!

INCREDIBLE, DIFFERENT AND HYSTERICAL GAME
I have been playing this for two days, on and off. I LOVE it!! The first game that is hilarious. I didn't look who created this one but "GREAT JOB". The voice overs have me laughing every time! The mini games are fun and different. I'm still thinking about Dino's voice lol Anyway..ahem.. it's like Monty Python meets Gaming. I totally understand the "mushroom" reference now. If you want to play a game laughing your way through this one is freakin AWESOME!

Long game with very funny characters! Loved it!
At first this game takes some getting used to....but if you are in a giggly mood then deffo play it! The characters are funny and i actually laughed out loud on my own and then felt a bit silly when my dog started staring at me!
This game is good value for money and is much longer than most. The story is easy to follow too, and has a good ending.

Refreshingly different, long, and fun!
I'm always on the lookout for games that break out of the demons/ghosts/insane criminals mold, and this is sure one of them.
The game is long, so you get your money's worth, there are voiceovers (mostly pretty good#, which I like, and lots of silly touches. The game is humorous--definitely doesn't take itself too seriously--the characters are quirky, and it plays like an adventure game. All good.
Now, for the part I didn't expect... It had an interesting story! Rather than merely providing the vaguest of motivations to find objects, there is a story here that has a few twists and turns, and details that make for #but didn't give away) a good ending.
Really a lot of fun, and a game you can play with kids. My favorite thing is the way the characters enter and exit a scene, bouncing along like my son does with his action figures to simulate walking.
I wholeheartedly recommend this game.

What a fun game!!!
I LOVED this game. Not many games make me laugh out loud nor care about the characters. The dialogue was great, From Nostradamus to Ugu the Caveman to Dino the Dinosaur, the characters were engaging. This game does have a lot of hunting around, but it has other types of games too, some I've never played before. I can hardly wait for the sequel.
