Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone
Not my cup of tea.... but if you love HOS, you'll love this game
Too many HOS for my taste.... it did have a few interesting but easy puzzles, but you need to really like HO scenes because that's what makes up 95% of this game.... The graphics however are some of the best I've seen.... I'm only recommending this game for HO lovers... If you prefer variety, you'll wanna skip this one....

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.

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.

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.

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.

Not enough good stuff
I must have bought this game a while ago based on the really good reviews, and am finally getting around to playing it. Well, I found myself bored to death, almost. The game play is one HOS after another after another, even HOSs inside of other HOSs. Many of the items are very small and hard to find on my 13" screen. Thankfully the hint recharges quickly, because I needed to use it A LOT.
The story is a pretty good, as are the visuals. I have the sound shut off, so can't comment on it. But even the interesting adventure story couldn't counteract the boredom of the endless HOSs. Another plus is that nothing is timed. If you like endless HOSs in a very long game, you might like this. In a rare choice for me, I refuse to finish it.
