Kate Arrow: Deserted Wood
Great game, liked all the HOs. Not many puzzles.
Graphics were good. Sound was good. And a
fun game to play.

GOOD SOLID HOG ADVENTURE
Good middle-of-the-road HOS-adventure. Experts would probably not find it much of a challenge but might enjoy its tameness when they want a quiet fairly easy game. Novices would find it more a challenge. Soothing music and pleasing graphics. Puzzles are the usual suspects. HOS have cleverly hidden objects; not too crowded. Gameplay is straightforward ? there are only about 4 locations per chapter, so there is little wondering what to do next. Storyline is the usual rescue your grandpa and recover some stolen idols. Well done production; it just lacks the extra oomph that some other games have. Appropriate to play with older children.

Pretty good game
I played this again for the third or fourth time over the weekend, and I really like the graphics here. Very crisp and clear, plenty of challenge on the ho's, and a tidy little story. I like the chapters which help the story transition from one area to the next. this was a good purchase for me.

In a word: Boring. I knew there was a reason I didn't buy it when it came out, and playing again today reminded me what it was. Even for two bucks, I'll pass.
- Passable storyline, though without any real excitement.
- The soundtrack is pleasant, if repetitive
- Graphics are sharp and clear
- There is nothing here that makes me want to go on.
- HOS after HOS after HOS
- Extremely linear
- Objects can be hard to find - very hard to find
- Hint refills slowly
- Puzzles really easy
- Can't turn off the sparkles
This is a straight HOG with a few puzzles tossed in. If you like HOGs, you may well like it. I prefer adventure, and if there is any in the game, I didn't get to it before I got tired of playing. It didn't require much thought, it was obvious what inventory was used for, and you find it, use it, rinse, repeat.
Some obviously have liked it, but not for me.

Very Skillful and Fun! A Superb HOG Adventure!
Minus the smoke, dust, bells, whistles and mirrors, this is a truly, fun and skillfully made HOG Adventure. Beautiful and intricate craftsmanship! Graphics and story line are clear, bright and straightforward, but don't let that fool you into thinking that you'll pick off the hidden objects easily and breeze through this game.
Loved it and gave the 5th Star Rating for being Family Friendly!!
