This game is for KIDS!
Professor Eikhorn (Einstein lookalike) explains to our heroine that her boyfriend isn't in the laboratory, but she tricks him into letting her into the lab, where she finds her boyfriend's cell phone, which is really a time machine. When she dials the number 3008 she is transported to 3008, where she finds her boyfriend in a cemetery, 500 years dead. He speaks to her as a hologram, telling her how to skip around time frames in order to free him. This scenario might alter, but I bailed at Chapter Four, as each chapter, short as they were, felt frustratingly simple minded.
Each chapter was similar to the previous one in that a main character introduces what must be accomplished in the chapter. Then a window opens with your task stated. For instance, in Chapter Four, Jurassic Park, the opening scene is a fern filled prehistoric jungle scene. The narrator says, in the usual carefully worded, slow, sarcastic and condescending manner, "Wow! A prehistoric jungle! What am I going to do?" Gosh! I wonder too!
The TASK box opens
THINK OF WHAT TO DO NEXT.
This imbecile attitude is reflected in small text boxes that appear over objects I clicked on; e.g., when I clicked on a lizard, a box popped up that said, "LIZARD".
When the cartoon dinosaur appeared and delivered a 'roar' in a slightly exasperated tone, like he was just pretending to roar, "RRRR RRRR", I knew it was time to call it a day. But then he opened his big toothy mouth and that is when I realized this game must have been made for KIDS, by adults who don't respect kids, because the narrator exclaimed in the most phony, surprised tone of voice yet, "OH!! You have TOOTH DECAY!! I will show you how to BRUSH YOUR TEETH!" From there we make a brush from a broom, brush away all the little red, green and blue fuzzy balls of 'BACTERIA' that are hiding between those gigantic pointy teeth, and extract a tooth that is beyond repair.
Music: The music was as saggy, sappy, tinkling and irritating as the narrators tone of voice.
In my opinion, in this tech savvy world, this game is only for really dumb three year olds who don't know how to brush their teeth. I see three year olds playing video games on their tablets on BART now. This game is an insult to todays three year olds

For beginners and the young
played some of the trial, but became very bored very quickly. I am basing my review on my own likes and dislikes, and this game isn't for me, The graphics are good, the voices got on my nerves. Sorry folks i would rather play games that are dark creepy and challenging.

Not for me
This game would be okay for kids, but not for me. It was goofy, silly and a turn-off.
Bad art, bad dialogue, bad animation, bad puzzles. I never even finished the tryout. The animation of the face of the scientist made him look as if he was having a seizure.
No wonder it's on sale. I'm not even going to buy it at that price.

Very cheesy with poor graphics
This game had such poor graphics that it was almost impossible to find the objects (like pieces of wood) that were hidden in the scene. The dialogue was extremely campy and a little creepy (not in a good way).
I got stuck on one of the puzzles because the instructions did not make sense to me.

Cheesy is the word
This game was super silly. The graphics are awful. The storyline is ok, but as you go along in the game the thing gets just plain stupid. I like more serious games. The characters move and talk like if they are toy dolls. It is hard to spot hidden items in the scenes. I would not even keep this game if it were free.

no no no
I have never reviewed a game, but felt I needed to warn people about this one. If you stop your game, you have to start over from begining of chapter you left. very dull story. some items go below where my curser can reach them, have never had that problem before. I hate this game would never recommend it. It dose not have more than one or two pictures to look at , at one time, I am only on second chapter to be fair to game. I took it off computer. do not not recommed it

Easy and cheesy -- Great for beginners
I thought some of the puzzles were challenging - but the graphics were so cartoonish, it sickened me. I played it through only because I purchased it. If I could have asked for my money back I would. This was the ONLY game I have ever felt this way from Big Fish and I am an avid purchaser. So if you are a seasoned Big Fisher - be warned.
