Time Mysteries: Inheritance
An OK game.
This game stands out as OK when compared to all the other great games at BF. Not sad I purchased it, as I probably got it as my free game. Graphics were clear and bright, but everything was flat, stationary. Also, I am not a fan of going back to same HOS scene over and over again.

Did anyone else feel like they were stuck in mystery science theatre or Bill an Ted's bogus journey or Dr. Who??
What I liked:
Interactive with characters
To do list in journal
mini-games to get hints
I think it cured my insomnia
I like the time travelling
What I didn't like:
The storyline was a good thought, but it came off a little corny.
The HOS's weren't bad, but were not greatly amazing either.
I felt like I was playing an older game, and it felt like maybe it was meant for younger audiences. The music was OK, and I did like how it changed up the sound to suit the area.
I just was not impressed by this game, and it took me trying to get through the demo hoping that it was going to get better as I went along. I could see the making of a really good storyline and I like traveling and being in different places and more areas than one or two. I might change my mind if it was a 2.99 game, but even then I fear I might be disappointed in the end.
I hope the people who are playing the game are enjoying it and find it to be a great decision for a game. :)

beautiful but BORING!
I am not easily bored. I play soothing games to relax and prefer non-timed games rather than high-pressure goals, but after about the third segment of this game I was bored out of my skull. The only reason I kept going is I wanted to write a fair review.
-graphics were excellent, lots of eye candy and clear crisp HO scenes
-mini game to generate more hints an unusual version of match 3, but still got boring after a while
-story line very simplistic and annoyingly illogical. final outcome was astonishingly disappointing.
-play was also tedious. Constant round of
playing a ho scene then a quick 7 item session of find the differences between each time period.
-Mini games within the time periods mostly banal, nothing too challenging I liked the marble game but otherwise meh.
-very (very, very) little to do in each time period, especially the 6th and 7th.
-within one time period (the scene with the projector) I had to begin the entire game over again because it would not let me exit the fuse box scene and find the missing piece of 'cable'. Very poorly designed. When I played that bit again after being certain I had both nails and 'cable' I had no problem. It makes me wonder how many other programmed glitches I was lucky enough to miss.
Wish I had given the whole game a miss.

Sorry Artifex Mundi, this is a no go
Usually, I love all Hidden Object Games frm Artifex Mundi, but sadly, this was not the case here.
Pretty good graphics.
My favourite part of the game was the minigame you could play to get more hints.
Didn't like the Hidden Object Scenes as much as I should've. Most of the objects were way too hard to find.
Storyline was prety good, but really needed voic-overs.
The game was a real bore.
Limited hints annoyed me.
The puzzles were flat-out the worst I've ever come across. Way too hard and no indication of if you hard a part right or not.
This game was a real disappointment. Not interested in this game.

I have really nothing nice to say
This was one of the worst games I have played in the last couple of years. The graphics were abysmal, the HO scenes were awful, the music was tedious, and the story was ridiculous.
The HO scenes used fuzzy, bad images so you had to just guess on a lot of items...there was no way you'd be able to tell what something was. You're only given 4 hints to start and then you have to earn more by playing a Match 3 game.
I'm not even sure why I played it all the way through. I guess I always like to finish what I start. Ick...please don't buy this one!

i've no time for games that penalize you for over clicking, therefore i scored it low, as for the game itself, its just average, of which ive enough of these already,
