Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone
not very ghostly at all
graphics fine, sound ok, but oh such a boring game.
fine if you want for the most part hos, but its far too simple for my tastess. however if you just want a very relaxing game without the need for much thought, this will do nicely.

good HOS game
Cute but get tired of only looking for HOS. Not bad for practice but has no adventure. Hint button work good and not to slow. HOS can be hard to find all the objects.

Way too many HO piles!
At first it seemed more like an adventure HOG but soon it became one HO pile after another, after awhile I got irritated and just wanted it to be over finally. Story was good and graphics were decent. So I don't recommend this game unless all you like are piles.

Calling all HOG hogs!
If you like Hidden Object Games, this one's for you. Practically every scene is another one. Finish one HO scene, and then one click away is another. There are some puzzles interspersed and the objects you put in inventory are used almost immediately. No deep thinking required for that. Very little backtracking either. The hidden objects are often extremely well hidden. For my taste, I'd rather have fewer HO scenes and more puzzles and cut scenes. For me, it got rather weary after awhile - just too many HO scenes.

Columbus-your still lost
Wanted to really like this game a lot of other HOGers liked it but I felt the most of the HO were to small just not defined enough.It was OK for a free game but I overpaid for it.

This game is addicting to play once you get started. The music although was one tune and repeated over and over. Used options to turn off music, but otherwise it makes you work @ every turn. An unexpected joy to play.
game on gamers......

VERY PLEASANT AFTERNOON OF PLAY
9 Chapters. Fairly easy game with a few challenges. A little over 3 hours on casual (but I may have not counted a half hour). STORYLINE: Felipa?s life-force (trapped in stone) has raised Columbus from the dead after the Pinta?s been caught in a storm. But he must release her spirit by the next full moon or he will die and Felipa will stay forever in the stone. To release her, he must complete an amulet after first fixing the Pinta and travelling to Corsica, France, and Spain, also visiting the Queen and a market, to complete several tasks and to gather the parts for the amulet. He makes it just in time.
GAMEPLAY: Nice-sized beautifully detailed and brightly-colored HOS (so objects aren?t too difficult to find). Besides interactive HOS, there are FRAGS which are clearly distinguishable. Proper proportion of HOS to FRAGS. Linear play - you have a task list that tells you the next thing that needs to be done. Various puzzles and mini-games, becoming more challenging as the game progresses. Lovely scenery and background music. Gameplay is not too mind-boggling, so it?s a pleasant afternoon of play.

Ghost of the Mystery Stone
This game was enjoyable for all the reasons already mentioned by other reviewers.
To sum up my experience of the game: It was full of HO's, but there were also 'fragmented objects' to vary things. The artwork and graphics were clear and appealing. The storyline, although with possible dire outcomes, was light. The sequencing was logical and easy to follow.
