I always enjoy a little humor...
I enjoyed this game quite a bit.
Loaded in well.
Had no problem with the cursor.
Graphics were clear and full on my wide screen. Many varied scenes set in the past, the present and the future.
Location transitions were quick and smooth.
Music fit the scenes.
There were no voice overs but the writing was done quite well.
Story line was interesting and quite entertaining. Humorous responses.
I played the difficult mode and stayed away from hints. Just sat back and took my time. Game took me about 4.5 hours.
The items hidden in plain site but well hidden just the same.
Didn't hold my hand or lead me by the nose. Challenging but not really difficult. Enough to make it hold my interest.
This was a very entertaining and relaxing game.
Hope they make a sequel.

Blah game, worth a look if you can get it as a daily deal
This is a weird game.
The problem with it, is nothing seems to be done very well - like in an A game. It wants to be both a hidden object game and an adventure. But unlike modern HOPAs this is just disjointed and doesn't accomplish either very well.
The story is like "the fall triology" mixed with (take your pick from many games with waking up as a patient in a ward) same storyline of other games.
But I actually was drawn in by the story, it just wasn't edited very well - to long and thought if they kept the main/initial plot mystery going longer it would have been better, but the title gives it away.
You can skip the story parts, but then you'd be lost.
It's not bad in parts, it's just not good.
I don't know anything about the DEV, if it's a first game, very old game, or even who it is. The hidden object scenes were 'photo object' type and just didn't appeal to me ( ie said twine/string that you would use for parcels was rope). The adventure side in parts I thought was OK (not good)
Why some good games just leave you bored, and other bad/not great games can suck you in, I don't know. It's sort of sucked me in and quite enjoyed it. despite my negatives.
I just couldn't recommend it at full price. I got it as a DD.

Interesting adventure game, but short
This was an interesting adventure game. Interesting storyline, good challenges and puzzles, sound and graphics quite good, however, I was disappointed. I liked the trial game enough to purchase the full version, but was disappointed at how short it was. I'd gone through more than half the adventure/puzzles during the trial, and after purchasing, I'd finished the game in less than twenty minutes. Due to the nature of the story, you need a solid period of time to pass before playing again for it to be fun and to forget the plot surprises. The game is good, fresh puzzles, even fun, but if you're looking for an adventure game that will take time and last for a while, this may not be it.

Better Fun Than Expected
I bought this game on special and because it had an OK review. I enjoyed it more than expected.
Following the twists and turns of the story kept me interested and the graphics that changed from past to present to future were well depicted.
It's of average length, a reasonable challenge and worth a few hours of your time.

Just a Fun Game to Play!
I like this game very much. My grand-daughter ask to play the "one where the man goes to sleep" because she can run the mouse over the items in the hidden object scenes and it shows her the shape. Since she is too young to read, it really helps her to be able to play alone. Of course, I supervise...lol. When I play a game it is for fun, so I really don't critique the graphics and music. As long as it is fun, has a good storyline (which this did) and I enjoy it, then that is all I ask of an enjoyable game.

nice game, liked the time travel storyline..graphics are nice and its a kinda funny which is also a plus. :)
but..those hogs (as usual with me) are soooo annoying when they pop up too often...and especially...when theres 20 things to find in each one. some have several of the same object, (5 of this, 4 of that..hate that!) and some objects frustratingly small.
but the mini puzzles are quite easy, so all-in-all not bad...go play :)

you CAN make a difference in the world -- in this game
in this hidden object mystery, you awaken from a seven year long coma in hospital. you return home and find a few surprises -- for example, the place is a boarded up ruin and your father is dead. why? what happened? then a strange man turns up and reveals that you can time-travel when sleeping in the same room as a functioning timepiece. in this game, you use this unusual ability to solve the mystery of your father's death -- and to make a few positive changes in the world along the way.
graphics: detailed and crisp. the hidden object scenes usually cluttered, and the objects on your search list (at least some of them), are very tiny and REALLY well hidden. you have to be very careful to make sure your cursor is actually ON the object you are trying to click on, too. the developers included amusing dialogue at times, particularly after hidden object scenes were solved. mini-games are interesting and require some thought but none are especially difficult or novel.
music and sound effects: music and sound effects were minimalist, but this seemed appropriate for setting the mood. no voiceovers, dialogue was scripted.
storyline: the plot revolves around a mystery and you use time travel to get around.
gameplay: there are two modes of play, casual and expert. on casual mode, HO scenes have a click penalty and hints take a long time to recharge (several minutes). smooth gameplay, with no stutters or freezes.
even though the story and characters are formulaic and the graphics are just above average (but nothing special), i am still drawn to this game. after playing the one hour demo, i am curious to learn how this particular story progresses and turns out. you may also share this feeling. additionally, the game certainly looks like good fun for the family.

Been there ... done that!
Nothing new here! It's just a variation on the same old plot line we've seen a thousand times before, with the same old "puzzles" (how many times have we had to place gears to get something to work?). The hidden object segments were boring and easy.
With no voice overs and poorly done graphics, there is really nothing to set this above the rest of the crowd. If it's your FIRST hidden object/adventure game, maybe it's hold your interest, but if you're even a slightly experienced gamer, you'll be bored before your trial hour is up.
Truthfully, I'm getting SO TIRED of these hidden object games!

I enjoyed this game
This game requires you travel back and forward in time to try and reverse some events in a shady takeover of an evil corporation and to find your Father. There are no voice overs but the dialoge does linger for enough time to read the whole story. The graphics are good clear and crisp. The puzzles and mini games are all interesting and different with some quite simple and others more difficult with most of the hidden objects quite well hidden but most reasonable easy to find and others present a bit of a challenge. The game did require a bit of backtracking through time and the different scenes to find your objectives but all in all quite a servicable and interesting game.

Was very excited to see a time travel game, but sad to say I was let down buy the gameplay and lack of puzzles.
Not to mention it was a little on the short side, but ok if its a daily special and you've got a few hours to waste.
