Robin's Quest: A Legend Born
Fun adventuring in Nottingham
I enjoyed this HOG adventure game a lot. Bright and innocent fun, without any doom, gloom, monsters or ghoulies! You play Robin, the heroine, who helps out the local people by righting wrongs done to them. Some of the people she helps (Friar Tuck, Little John etc) join her merry band, and as she gets more expert at solving problems she becomes the town's champion.
It's very well done, the cartoony graphics are large and bright, and the HO items are generally true to the period which is always a big plus for me. The HO scenes are deliberately fuzzy but not too hard, and the challenges are suitable for the style of the game: easy but enough to make you think. The music and sound effects are fine and appropriate. I enjoyed the archery challenges too! The game's a little childish when compared to others, but I found it a nice, light change from the usual gloomy games out there.
A lot of thought's been put into this game to make it a fun historical romp. I found the accents of the local characters hilarious, as they're more Irish-American than Nottinghamshire, but it all adds to the fun of the game.

A little short but fun!
This was a fun game; albeit, a little short. The game finished within about 3 hours. The storyline wasn't anymore different than other games of the same characters, but at least it stayed true to it. The only thing was that it seemed a little easy on a lot parts. Some of the hidden searches were hard, but those hints came in handy!
Some of the instructions aren't incredibly clear so you might find yourself backtracking.
The graphics were smooth and colorful. The music was soothing- definitely reminiscent of the Renaissance era.
I just wish it had been a little more challenging and had a bit longer gameplay.

NOT AN ADULT'S GAME, FOR 10 AND UNDER, IMO
REVIEW BASED ON COMPLETED GAME IN EXPERT LEVEL
There is nothing wrong with this game other than it seems to me to be a kid's game. Everything in it was geared towards children, from the crayon colored coloring book drawings to the simple story and games.
Simple story line
"Area Cleared" signs pop up when you've finished a section
VERY easy HOS
Characters do good deeds
Music fits the time period
Mini Games are very simple
Goals are clearly stated
Game advancement is linear
Other characters join you and lend their talents
Happy ending (of course)
Geared towards children, IMO
Story like reading a child's storybook
Way too easy
If you're a beginner or would like a game for a child 7-10, then this game is for you.

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

Why does this have a good review?!
Honestly, I didn't like this game at all. The story seemed fun to explore, but I just didn't like the look of this game, it's so Gaussian blur, not my style of the game. Overall the puzzles were too difficult for me and getting the coins, I thought that was sort of pointless. I mean it's cool that we can play archery game by paying some coins, then you get more coins back. I didn't know what the whole point of it, it's not like you can purchase something with your coins. I felt like I was inside my dream, trying to get out out of this game, it was just so boring. I can't believe I purchased the full version when I didn't like the trial to begin with, how sad this is. Oh wells, at least it was $3.27 total for daily deal discounts.

Too boring for me!
I played for 2 minutes and most of that was figuring out how to turn off the dialogue. Not for me!
