Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal
Hidden object game is right.
This game is quite charming, and I was hooked on playing the demo. One thing I must warn is some objects are sooo small, that hidden object is correct.

I am glad I bought this before playing the demo...
..or I would not have bought it and would have missed some good fun. The game is 10 chapters, each one taking 45 min to an hour, approx. To me, it was just, at first, a HO game and I was having little fun. As the game progressed, however, the story was just SOOO good, and the places to go were so very interesting, that I just used the demon (much more like an imp) as my constant partner in finding little things, and had a blast with this.
The game is simply an EXCELLENT story, with the characters all asking Brunhilda to find stuff as it progresses. The items are weird things, like herbs and pulling chains and such and most very small, but a right click brings up a magnifying glass and your "demon" finds things quickly, so once I used him as a partner instead of a hint button we got on quite nicely.
There are no real puzzles, just a few little skill tests and finding finding and FINDING things. Wonderful scenery and characters--terrific accents they all use.
This is just one gem of an HO game. I will buy the sequel if there ever is one, even though this would not normally be the type of game I would enjoy.

Can we have another please!
I love this game! It is fun, enjoyable, and relaxing to play. I really hope a sequel is made!!! I would recommend this game to anyone who likes puzzles and is wanting something different than the standard list of random objects to find. There are objects to find, but are used together to complete a mission or task. The character's are really likeable and funny.

I really want to love this game....
But it's just too talky for me..click some objects, listen to more talking..click some objects..talk talk talk.
Warranted, the characters are charming, especially the little demon companion...and the graphics are gorgeous..
But if you're looking for lovely graphics, nice game play, plenty of HO to find...and don't mind all the talking..
This game is for you. :)

It was great and reminded me of Drawn. Keeps me busy and has a good story line also.

I bought this game based upon prior user reviews, however it was so boring. Yes it was visually ok, had music on mute so can't really rate that fairly. Basically even though it changed scenes (10 times throughout the game) it was the same monotones HO style and same mini games over and over again. Boring...the first level was tolerable but to do it 10 times over and over again?
Also the game had a lot of reading...I just skipped the reading and even then the game would never end...I gave up at level 8 and deleted the game.

Wish there were more!
This game was very well crafted, and I wish it were a series. Loved it.

The story is nice but the hidden objects are too easy. All I have to do is wandering around between scenes for the dozens of cheeses/apples. There are only four kinds of puzzles repeatly through the whole game, which makes me tired eventually.

Charming but oh so repetitive
This is a cute cartoonish game. There is a lot of dialogue, and I do mean a lot!!!. You basically are going back and forth between places finding objects... over and over and over again. It could have been a wonderful game with some tweaking, but it was just too repetitive for me. The objects to be found were extremely small. Even though the scenes were bright, it's very hard to see, say, 5 mousetraps in a room. There was a hint button to help out and I found I was using it just to push the game along, I was so bored of the repetition. I wouldn't recommend this game.

At first I thought a little to cartoony, but turned out to be a great game. Enjoyed following Brunhilda and the demon in their mission. Good clear graphics. Some HOG items were very small so had to use the hint.
