A Gypsy's Tale: The Tower of Secrets
An excellent game for sharing with kids and for casual adult gamers just looking for a relaxing, uncomplicated pastime.
The puzzles aren't terribly challenging, but on the plus side, they're not frustrating either; perfect for first-timers and young to pre-teen children. The storyline is engaging and the graphics are crisp and appealing.
You'll probably want to use the walkthrough a few times because it's not always clear what you're supposed to be doing or where, but IMO it's not a significant drawback. Well worth the price.

A Charming Game
A Gypsy's Tale: The Tower of Secrets is a fun hidden object adventure game. The graphics are beautifully drawn, the characters are fun, and the story is engaging.
There are no junk pile scenes to dig through. All the hidden object scenes have items that are hidden into the scenery. The puzzles are fun. There is a store where you can trade the crystals you find for items that will help you with your quests.
I really like the fairy/gypsy theme.

This game was reminiscent of some of the older adventure game genres that certainly are completely competitive with the best of todays adventures.
The game learning curve may be a bit off putting at first but once you get into the flow of the game, it is simply the best best game ever!!
The artwork and general storyline is magical, interesting and just pure joy to play.
Check it out.... bet you will love it too!!!!

I played the trial and was so impressed I decided to buy it straight away!
It is a beautiful game with lovely dreamlike graphics. The storyline and music are both very good.
The hidden object games take a different approach than the norm, which I enjoyed. The puzzles are good, with a mixture of both hard and easy, and a handy skip button for the games that were frustrating!
Overall a very enjoyable game !

Great adventure/hidden object game!
This charming hidden object/adventure game is a good family game! More simplistic than other games of this genre, however, very well done. Lot of challenges, lots of puzzles. Would be good for kids to adults seeking fun game!

A beautiful looking game, but...
This felt promising when I played the trial, then decided to buy. But I don't like being told what to do and where to go BEFORE MOVING ON TO ANYTHING ELSE in HO games. Give me the power to choose what to investigate, find tools for the journey as they become available, and use them when I'm ready.

Loved it and waiting for the sequel
I have played this game three times now. It is beautifully drawn with a different twist on seek and find. I am getting really tired of the usual hidden objects games and this was a nice change. It has been out quite a while but have not heard of a sequel in the making. The story ends as a partial cliffhanger with an understanding that another game will come along. I have researched it a little and found no information regarding a part 2.
This was an easy game that can be accomplished in 3 to 5 hours. There were a few puzzles but nothing to stump you too much. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Developers, please come out with a sequel. Quite a few of us are biting at the bit.

Beautiful, Challenging, and Pleasant
Completed in casual mode. Good length. Challenging; requires some thought. Many, many tasks to do in this adventure-HOG game. Visual effects are beautiful. Relaxing play - music changes to suit scenes. Has circles showing what items you need to find and put into the circles to get an object (don?t recall what that type is called). You can?t take items until they are needed. The gnome, goblin, deer and fairies were terrific. I especially liked the challenge of making and using some of the potions.
Unless you need a lot of exercise, find the crystals in every scene because they will unlock a piece of the interactive map. Puzzles are middle-of-the-road ? most aren?t too easy but not too difficult. If you don?t know what to do or where to go, check your task bar. If that?s not enough help, there is a hint system, but it isn?t the most helpful. It might be easier to just revisit rooms and click the hint button.
Looks like there will be a sequel, but I haven?t seen one yet. About a 4.6 stars (because I got stuck a few times), so I rounded up because it was just a beautiful and pleasant game to play.
