Robin's Quest: A Legend Born
An All Time Favorite
This is one of the most enjoyable games I've played. From the mini-games to the HOS, scenery and challenges - it was all fun, fun, fun! It's also a game that you'll want to play again even if you have a few hundred. When I'm burned out of the same old same with games I find this game to be the one to bring me back to wanting to play adventuress HO's again. Just loved it!

cute fun and not hard
Nice cute game. Played 30 min on the free side and bought it. Cut game. Good graphics music is good. Has a area clear so you know when that part is complete. Not hard at all. Not much running around trying to find things. Worth the price.

Very gentle and well done!
Being a fan of horror, I prefer the HOGs that are more along the lines of, "you are trapped in an asylum with the ghost of the pirate who murdered your twin brother who was also a werewolf!" variety. However, when I play those for too long, I get a little...weird. So it's nice to find a game like this one that is just as fun, but without a mean bone in its body. I'd still recommend the Awakening series FIRST, but Robin's Quest is definitely worth the price.

Very Fun and Unique
This game was great fun, from the into to the end. It had clever playability, with creative problem solving. I enjoyed the idea of a strong female main character, and liked seeing a popular story with a fun twist. The puzzles weren't particularly difficult, but they were fun. And searching for the wanted signs was a neat extra. Looking forward to more games for GoGii.

Excellent medieval era game
Robin is a Woman!!!!! She and her husband are imprisoned by the evil Prince John. She must escape and form her band of merrymen, pay back the unfair taxes to the poor from gold gleaned by the Prince's unscrupulous henchmen, defeat Prince John and free her husband. The voice overs are typical of the era and the music is akin to what you would expect from a court jester. Graphics are good clear and precise. Some of the puzzles and mini games are pretty involved and take some nutting out, others are reasonably easy but all are entertaining. The hidden objects are enhanced by the occasional use of each of the merrymen's unique traits to unearth useful objects required for the game, a great concept. All standard hidden objects are clear and colourful and reasonable to find. The 'area clear' sign prevents superflous searching and clicking. An excellent game well worth the money and time.

There were some nice things about the game, such as "Area Clear" signs, but I thought it was way too short.

A very fun game!
Robin's Quest: A Legend Born is fun, a little challenging and the story is very good. The game is beautiful and the characters are fun! A game to own and play to relax!

This game didn't take me that long to play. I liked the storyline. It was easy to follow. The hidden objects were actually really easy to follow. The puzzles were simple to solve as well. I really prefer to have some challenge when I play these games, but overall it was good.

THis game is just FUN
This is one of those games which I enjoy playing when I just want to have fun. My only complaint is it is short...so I am glad I got this with a free game code. The music is so enjoyable that I would take my time in areas when certain music was playing...I believe it was during the HO scenes. I enjoyed being able to hunt for the posters and also for the pardons for people. Don't expect a difficult and serious game because this one does not fit that description at all. Only gives you PURE ENJOYMENT! I would like more games like this one!

Classic 'tale' bought to life
Whether you think Robin Hood was real or a myth this whimsical game will bring to life the story of olde. There is a twist that the main character is a woman (though the legend says a man no-one knows for sure).
There are a lot of sub-quests in the game and these are integral to the overall game. I would class this more of a puzzle game with some HO scenes, rather than the other way round. I like this as for me I feel that the story can become more involved and can better interact with the characters (I am not saying that all HO/HOPA games have no story as the vast majority do, it is just for this game it is more puzzle and for this game it works).
Speaking of Characters even though this is a standard game the VO's are good, and you even have 'banter' between the guards, which is a nice touch.
The only downside I can see with the game is that it is for me too easy. Now I have been playing HO/HOPA games for a while (and some 'hardcore' (well as hardcore as you can get for 'casual games)), but even on the expert level this was easy, so I would say that this game is more suited for a beginner to the genre or to a younger person.
Even though I may complete the game within a couple of hours of purchasing given that it is on a 'half-price' deal I think I will purchase the game just to see how it all 'pans out'.
I would recommend the game but only on a deal if you have experience in this genre of game, but if you are new to the genre then this is worthy introduction to the genre.
