Cruise Clues: Caribbean Adventure
Cruise Ship and Jewelry - A Girl's Dream!
PLUSSES = This is a game that I play whenever it is cold/rainy/stormy outside, because it is a cute, bright and fun little game. An FBI agent goes on a Caribbean cruise to catch a jewel thief. Throughout the game there are lots of Hidden Object scenes where you explore rooms on the ship (casino, piano lounge, disco bar, penthouse suite, poolside, etc.) and look for fun items, like pretty jewelry and gems, cocktails, purses and other tropical vacation items. Other locales include beaches and underwater scenes (loved the underwater scenes, so pretty). There are a few mini-games, like place the gems back in the tiara. The game is easy to play, it is a straight forward Hidden Object game, and fun to play when you need to de-stress.
MINUSSES = The ending is a little abrupt, and the game is not very long.

Very enjoyable game
Once again, HOG lovers delight! Not alot of brain power is needed for this wonder vacation get away game! So much fun and some lol moments! This is a game that is playable over and over again. Well worth the money if you are a true HOG gamer!
I love these types of games as they help me de-stress, relax and enjoy a few hours of down time!

Fun, good for killing time
It's a fun little game. Not one of my favorites, but it's enjoyable as a hidden object game.
Nice to play an HOG in a nice vacation and tropic setting.
My only beef with this one is that it's one of those that, every so often they will hide an object in such a way that you think "There's no way ANYONE would have eve seen that!"
Oh yes and there's not all that much of a story to it, if that bothers anyone. You just search around while looking for the jewel thief and that's it. No suspense, twists or turns really. Didn't bother me though.

HOS and nothing else !!
Well done and colorful graphics.
However, the game brings nothing fun and nothing holds attention or curiosity.
After a very short time you had enough seeing the same locations, the same scenes, doing the same things ...
In addition, it is a pretty easy game, which has practically only HOS... very boring !

I've a widescreen monitor and this game takes up the whole space BUT there are SEVERAL scenes in which there are hidden objects that CANNOT be seen because they are actually hidden beyond the monitor screen. Hence, in searching for said objects, your CURSOR becomes HIDDEN.
To add injury to insult, if you click too many times your cursor will start wiggling around which, of course, makes it useless to keep clicking until it stops.
In addition to that, you've got several scenes in which you've got to find objects (NOT on your list) to use on certain items to continue searching/finding objects. That in of itself is not the problem -- the problem is that sometimes you CAN'T FIND the object that needs to be used but the HINT button will NOT help you in finding the necessary tool -- it'll only highlight the object for which the tool is needed.
I am sure glad that I didn't pay more than the Daily Deal price for this game; if I had, I would be contacting the Bigfish support department demanding the return of my money.

Had a headache after only 40 mins of demo.
Holy TINY/blended in HO! And I mean TINY, and blended in so well, they are nothing more than a light shadow in the scene. Sometimes when you use a hint, the sparkles even blend into the scene! You will need the hint, and it's sometimes not helpful. I tried to like this game, but got a headache from squinting for 40 mins of the demo. To me, it's not even worth the DD price.
If you get stuck, like I did in the beginning, trying to find a HO (with no hint for some reason), there is NO WALKTHROUGH ANYWHERE! I googled it, and searched everywhere to find one, to no avail. You also MUST click SPECIFICALLY on the tiny object, in order for it to take, and it may take a couple of clicks to get it...that is if you are sure it is the item you are trying to find. There are multiple items in a scene that fit the description of the item you are supposed to find. Say you are looking for a camera. There are all different types of cameras in the scenes, so it's a matter of finding which type of camera they want.
The graphics look a bit outdated, and the scenes are crisp and beautifully colorful, if not a bit bright in some areas. The music is nice, and unobtrusive. The story line is okay, but nothing great. There are no voice overs, so there is a lot of reading. This is definitely a girly game.
The HOS are different, and the way they are set up make it more frustrating than fun. You have a regular HOS, but within that HOS are subscenes...drawer scenes, cabinet scenes, bar scenes, etc...and you have to search all of these subscenes within the main scene to find the TINY HO. You also have to use some of the items that you find in the scenes, but it doesn't tell you in the HO list that you need to find...for instance, a battery charger somewhere in one of the many subscenes.
All in all, this was not my cup of tea. It seems like a straight forward HOG, with some find the differences, and interactives thrown in. If you can get past the tiny/blended HO, then you may like this game. If your eyes aren't so great, or if squinting for a while gives you headaches, I'd pass on this one.

Worst game I've ever play.....
No sort of challenges, too simple. Also I feel I've wasted $2.99 on this game, its good that I only spent that much imagine if I spent the regular price. So if you have a 9-10 yr. old, its just right for them.

Not My Favorite HOG
Items are too tiny and/or invisible. I find myself clicking the hint button far too often because I'm getting a headache looking for practically non-existant items.
I'm playing just a bit every day as I get too frustrated. Definitely won't play a second time aro und.

Quite an enjoyable game
This game was a pleasant change from the past few games that I have played, not stressful, simple story, bright scenes and not mushy with romantic wedding stuff. The graphics were very good, clear and defined with enough dialogue just to keep you abreast of what is happening and what you are looking for. The plot is simple - an FBI agent looking for an elusive jewel thief, both at various locations on board and in several visiting ports. Puzzles and mini games ranged from simple to easy. Hidden objects ranged through the whole spectrum from easy to challenging. There has been some reference of no walk through blog - this is true - but when you come to a shimmering area within a scene it usually gives a clue of what is required to look for, Where to find it but, could be a bit tricky. A good change of pace and depth, I quite enjoyed it.
