Robin's Quest: A Legend Born
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.

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.

Another Robin Hood
I like that this game has creativity, but keeps the story about Robin stealing money for the poor.

Enjoyed killing a bit of time with this game, not a bad game to be honest, a bit cheesy maybe but it adds to the fun...

This had a nice storyline and smooth interface. Fun archery contests in between. It would been better if there was a way to spend the money earned at the archery contests.

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

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.

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!
