How to make HOGs fun This is a game with an earlier games flavor... a game from more primitive times. This is not a demerit. Those early games quite often made up in inventiveness what they lacked in sophistication. (I still remember forndly my Laura Bow game, done back when DOS was the standard, with 2-D drawings and use of arrows... and the need to save before having Laura do anything risky since the game kept killing her...even when she took a shower, which became a Hitchcock shoutout). This is an example of that inventiveness. It is nothing but a series of HOS and FROGS. but we are shwon what the point is. We need to assemble something to go to the next room. Or to assemble it so that we can retrieve another item. The HOS are well defined, and well lighted with none of the muddy quality of other games. The minigames are simple but fun, and the storyline progresses with each covered area. Plus you get to dress and primp your avatar.... Also at one time you get to see the wreck of the Minnow, the one that went on a three hour tour. It is a lot of fun.... January 16, 2014
Good story & a lengthy gameplay This game from Gogii has a great storyline, Melissa is an ex cat burglar whose son is kidnapped & she has to go back to her former occupation for one last time. The voiceovers are good & there is a skip button for the cut scenes; the music is pretty repetitive. The graphics are a little dated so not as crisp as games recently released but they are still pretty good & the scenes are full of detail. There are a lot of Hidden Objects in two styles, one is the usual word list & the other is where you click on an area where there is a magnifying glass & have to find various objects identified from silhouettes to make something; for instance a ladder. Once you have found all these then you can move on to another scene or perform a specific task. At the end of each chapter you have to crack a safe, there are five; there is a skip button. Also after each chapter you can dress Melissa in different disguises. In Casual mode the objects are identified by the cursor turning into a hand but in Advanced it does not; if you click too many times without finding something your cursor will be locked for a few moments. The hint recharges in 30 seconds for both modes of play. One tiny bug; when I played Casual mode the hint button did not work for the first few H0 scenes but after I played in Advanced for a while & went back to the easier mode to see what happened the hint button then worked. It took me just under 4 hours to play so is a good length. November 28, 2011
A Busy Burglar Really enjoyed the 5 hours it took to play this very refreshing game a second time. It's a 4 1/2 star game and it's a toss-up as to whether to round up or down. Storyline: Melissa is a retired cat burglar whose son is held ransom until she robs a bank. She recruits a former buddy to help her (male for you guys). Never saw the ending coming ? it was a little surprising. With her deductive reasoning and bravery, she should look into being a detective as a legitimate career since she is once again retired. Gameplay: There are a limited number of environments. You get to choose her wardrobe for each of the 5 chapters. It took some getting used to not being able to back out of scenes. Instead, you click on the character, then hover somewhere in the scene until you get a picture of a walking person to show that you can do something at that location. There is only one such location open at a time. The gameplay itself is not too easy and not too difficult. I thought it was perfect when I wanted to exercise my brain, but only a little. HOS: Two kinds. (1st) straight HOS with a small amount of interaction, crisp, clear and best of all, no little objects here ? so it was a real pleasure to play them. Whenever you found an object, game made a couple cool sounds I would never tire of. It amused me that there were so many Gogii products in the HOS. Many of the items found in the traditional HOS are used in the Circle HOS. (2nd) Circle HOS (put items into a circle to get another object). Can be working on 2 or 3 circles at a time. When you hover over an item, a hand tells you it can be used in one of the circles. Puzzles special kudos: Really cool puzzles and mini-games that get a progressively more complex. Tied nicely into the story and gameplay. What?s extra nice is that there are verbal instructions and visual examples of how to play the mini-games. Wish more games had this so I don?t have to read unclear and minimal instructions, then try to figure out what in the world did they mean and what am I supposed to do. At the end of each chapter, you have to crack open a safe before the big finale. Graphics were beautifully crafted and each location fit the story perfectly. Music was relaxing, with a slight upbeat. It recycled, but it was so pleasant to listen to. September 9, 2012
Vault Cracker I enjoyed this game. It is one where the objects are not familiar items, but rather pieces of objects. This one was fun. November 16, 2011
just relax with this one As I am growing tired of the heavy-handed dreary HO genre, this was a refreshing change. It does not rely on a strong storyline, but kudos to the developers for their creative hand - loved the movement of the character from scene to scene, and the party scenes were also a nice touch. It was just very different from the usual fare and for me, it has good replay value. August 9, 2013
UNUSUAL GAME FOR ME Review based on completed game in casual mode. Animation - Characters were realistically drawn but did not move except for a small Melissa (LOL), about one inch high, and you have to point and click to get her going to each area. VOS - Excellent. IHOS - Combination of lists and circles in which items interacted in other areas. Some objects found in lists were put into circles in other locations. This seemed unusual to me but challenging. Difficult for me to explain. Items were small and well concealed. Hint - Fast recharge. Misclick Penalty - Cursor locks for a second. Annoying. Wish Devs would eliminate this feature. Puzzles/Mini-Games - There were photo (?), pick and safe puzzles which I actually enjoyed solving. Inventory - Objects used quickly in various locations. Skip - Available at all times. Give this game a try. I think you'll enjoy it. Happy Gaming!!! February 28, 2013
good but not the greattest Good HOG. Not hard to do and not all that long. There are great games out there now so look around. Look for 4 or 5 star games to be challenged with. August 23, 2012
Was it worth it? I played the game for the test hour and thought it was quite good, nice story line a few interesting HOS. Then I bought the game expecting a lot more than I got. I finished the game in just under 2.5 hrs! The game LEADS you through each and every task. There is no thinking involved as to where you have to go next or if there are some areas that you MIGHT still have tasks to do. The 'Find the person' games are good. They had me thinking a few times. BUT that's unfortunately not enough FOR ME to justify the price of the game. But each of us has to make up our own mind. February 11, 2012
Okay for a small break The storyline is ok. The graphics are good. You are shown where to go or what to do so just watch the cursor... The HOS are clear. The puzzles are too easy. It took me 2.5 hours to finish. I would recommend this game if you need a break from more challenging games or if you are a beginner. June 11, 2012
Good But Not Great Vault Cracker is a mix of standard Hidden Object Scenes with scenes where you find things to complete an objective, with a few mini-puzzles when you "crack" a vault. The basic HO scenes aren't bad. There are a few items which may be harder to find, but nothing horrible. Overall, they're enjoyable. There's a few times when an object you're looking for is behind or under another item on your list, which can be momentarily frustrating. The HO scenes to complete the objective are mostly too easy. You get a visual list of the objects you need to find, and when your mouse slides over them, your cursor turns to a grabby hand. Sometimes the items you need are already in your possession, and sometimes you need to complete a regular HO scene to find what you need. The mini-games for the vault cracking are way too easy. I'm not the greatest at puzzles and I flew right through every one of them. At most, they took a moment of thought to figure out how to do the hardest parts. Overall, the game kept me fairly entertained, but Vault Cracker has three big downsides: - You cannot escape the voice-overs. Although they are captioned, you're stuck with listening to them. - At the end of some chapters, it tells you to "click to continue", but it will not do so until you've listened to some dialogue. - The game punishes you for over-clicking. What is this, 5 yrs ago? So few games do this anymore, and it's for the better. The music is a bit repetitious but I did not find it annoying. The art is fine, crisp enough without being too overly drawn. Please check the forums before purchasing this game. I would not recommend it unless you are getting it on deep sale or for free with a coupon. August 9, 2012
