Unique and underrated; give it a try!
I was very pleasantly surprised by Goddess Chronicles. It is a hidden object game, but it's different in you have to use spells some of the time to work and find these objects. You are a practicing "Goddess," and Zeus and Hades have sent you on trials to learn how to use your powers. The scenes look hand drawn and are very different than the 'photorealistic' scenes in most HOGs. The game lasted longer than I thought it would, and I found I at times that I couldn't stop playing; I was loving the story, the graphics and the HOG challenge. Sometimes you have to choose among your powers for use in scenes to locate hidden objects. The hints were helpful, but you only have a certain amount of them per scene.
I won't give away the ending, but I smell a sequel.
Give this unique game a try!

Good spellbinding game
This game starts at Mt Olympus where a goddess has to overcome challenges and use unique powers to assemble artifacts and to eventually achieve immortality. There is just enough dialogue to instruct you through the game and the graphics which are not that good being hand drawn but are passable and reasonably easy to discern. the puzzles and mini games are simply and not very involved but the block puzzles are a bit more challenging. The matching pairs puzzles are quite unique and differently depicted. Finding the hidden objects requires looking for pieces of the items listed and to assemble these objects to trigger another part of the game. Some are very well hidden whilst others are easliy spotted while still others require a spell to reveal them.
A very entertaining and engrossing game which I thoroughly recommend.

Not for me
This game would be fine for a relative beginner but it didn't do much for me, much to my surprise - I love HOGs and am fascinated by mythology. I have downloaded the trial version twice (on different computers) but somehow the game didn't grab me enough to want to buy it. The game lacked that certain something which would have made it absorbing. Pity.
The graphics are a bit flat but that doesn't matter when the gameplay is good. It's great that BFG allows a 1hr. trial of games - try it for yourself and see.

Niiiice Fantasy play!
This is a great hidden object game where you have to find the fragments of pieces to put together while traveling to a faraway fantasy land.

A Hidden Gem for Relaxing Fun
If you are looking for a relaxing and not super hard game then this one might be for you. I love the hand-drawn artwork in this game and do realize some don't like it, but it was one of the reasons I was drawn to the game and purchased it. It was a refreshing break from the same ole style that many of the other hidden object games have. I also liked that in the game you had to sometimes use magic spells to find the objects needed. I love mythology so this was another reason I was drawn to this game, but for me the story lacked a little bit, but was still enjoyable. The ending was a bit of a surprise and I hope they come out with a second one. :)
