Robin's Quest: A Legend Born
A game you can sink your "arrow" into!
This was an awesome HoG/Adventure game! Great story, fun mini games (shooting arrows at objects was the best part for me being an amateur archer), intrigue, good characters and enough of a challenge, but not mind bendingly so, to keep you playing for hours. I've played this game at least 3 times all the way through and it's just as much fun as the first time! Fun, fun, fun!

Very nice change of pace game
Not difficult but not boring. That's a good combination for just plain fun. Music is delightful. The graphics are excellent. The story carries itself well. There are not a ton of hidden objects. I have played it through twice and will do so a bunch more times. If you like a huge challenge though, you may be disappointed. Still, a lot of fun for most.

This is a very unique, fun game. Hidden objects - some hard and I did use hint more than once. Does have sparkles to help you but nothing distracting. To get more hints you click on the floating white circle. Cute story which made it fun. and when you are finished with a particular area, a sign drops down stating area is clear. Nice to have. Some have complained that this Robin Hood is female. - Who cares - Enjoy the game!
Definitely worth the cost.

the feminism of Robin Hood
A delightful game in which Robin is a she.
Fun for the whole family.
The characters blend well into the story with its tasks.

Most enjoyable game with fun characters.
Sound and visuals surpassed most games. Light and cheerful to play. Areas cleared was very helpful. In all a childish but challeging fun endeaver making you want to play again to perk up a day.

Loved this HOG, it's really entertaining. As most HOGs I play...that's worth the time.

NOT WHAT WAS INITIALLY EXPECTED
A new twist on an old tale: Robin is a woman and not only has to fight to right the oppression of the Brits but help her husband escape from prison. Very well done - it is as believable as the original tale. While on her quest, various villagers will ask her help in getting their money back. Your hints are in the form of fireflies and you can capture additional ones to replenish them when they dwindle.
As with the tale, Robin forms a band of Merry Men, each with their own skill. Robin also has to rip down her wanted posters (62) and help her Merry Men find the pieces of their Pardons from the king. You?ll also have to search for hidden gold caches. You may need to return to an area, but once it is completed, you get an ?Area Complete? notation so that you don?t waste time unnecessarily exploring unfruitful locations. Most of the puzzles have a purpose, such as helping to build a wall or baking a pie to distract the guards (you just happened to overhear them talking about how they snitched pies from the baker while you are in his shop).
SUMMARY: An average length game with 16 chapters of an old tale. Various inspired quests and puzzles which are integral to the game of helping your fellow Brits and your husband. Done with a good sense of humor and attention to detail. Good production values.

Fun & Easy Little Game
This game was quite easy (which is normally a turn off), but had so many exceptional points. Great storyline, fitting music, good puzzles, quaint characters... just a fun diversion from all the scary demonic stuff we usually see! Please more like this!!

The storyline is a nice little twist on Robin Hood.
Although the gameplay is pretty straight forward, it was never boring or tedious. There was just enough thinking required to keep it interesting and none of the puzzles were too hard.
It was also nice to have well-lit scenes!!
I like the "finished" notice on each area...didn't need a map or directions.
However, this is not a game for those who want a challenge, but if you'd like to spend a few hours with a relaxing, interesting game....this is the one.
Personally, I don't play for scores or achievements but for relaxing and still using my mind (instead of TV zombie...lol)
I wouldn't mind 12 other games just like this!
