Incredible Adventures of my Mom
Lots of fun
Cute, enjoyable game. Nothing too challenging here, but a nice way to relax and unwind. I liked that it was more than just finding the HO's. There was some character action needed at times which made it fun and, IMO, actually qualified it for the adventure game category as well as hidden object.
Nice, varied scenes- not just old junk piles to search. I liked the mini games as well, which weren't just the same few repeated throughout the whole game. I thought the visual quality was good. Can't comment on the sound quality as I play with the speakers off.
Overall length of game was good when played at a leisurely pace. Nothing irritates me more than a game that only lasts an hour or so.
Plot and story are obviously stretches of the imagination with plenty of gaps, but it didn't ruin the fun of it for me. I don't buy games like this for the storyline.
Probably not for the high intensity gamer, but for those who like to sit back and enjoy the game for what it is- just for fun- I recommend it.

Just so funny!
My review after downloading perfectly and playing the whole game. The screen width can be altered, will help, some people that have found this to be a problem. The music is not annoying but I thought repetive. Reasonable easy HOG scenes, but is that really a suitcase? LOL. Predictable with having an idea of what you would have to find for the next list. I do not want to spoil it so you will see what I mean by various items of the same type lying around. The hint recharges pretty quickly,( I wanted to try it out). If an item looks out of place it is probably on the list. A definite buy if you want a lighthearted game. There is a bonus game as when I pressed the about button it showed a sign for bonus game.
The graphics are very crisp and clear and could be considered an IHOG. I am not as good as some of you on my reviews but hope that this helps.

better than a mystery book
This is a great game. I couldn't stop playing at the end. It was so funny, a great story and great characters. I don't usually do well with trying to put things together but the action was confined to a few locations at a time and the hints were helpful and rechargeable.

A not too heavy who dunnit
A police chief has been kidnapped and the second in charge has been promoted to handle the case. His mother hears about the mafia involved intrigue and flies to italy the assist her son Sam in his investigations. This is actually a light hearted adventure of a mother taking on the Italian Mafia in a foreign country. Not feasible but a good yarn. The dialogue was just enough to be a guide through the game and did not tie it down. The graphics were good, clean, clear and colourful and the puzzles were not that hard to find but had to be searched over two or three adjoining scenes which involved a bit of a challenge. The puzzles and mini games were reasonably simple and digestive. Overall a good lighthearted interesting game well worth a try.

Fun game !
It was funny, it had alot of cute interactive details (like, Mom would nap if you took too long) , it had a bonus play game introducing all the developers team. The hidden object scene hunts were mostly for story relevant objects. It was entertaining!
There were just a few language localization errors but they were fun, too. Like a "nose scarf" is a handkerchief

Great Little Game
I really enjoyed this little game. Really cute character as the mom, and I enjoyed the scene changes and the colorful atmosphere. Easy little mini games, a little fuzzy on the HOS's, but all in all, worth a few dollars. ESL is apparent, as a handkerchief is labeled "nasal scarf" and a grenade in a couple of scenes is a "garnet." The hint button recharges fairly quickly, though, so if you can't find the garnet or the nasal scarf, the hint function will save you!

Cute premise, but after a while the music began to pall. I had a problem with many of the doors in the free game, It took some twenty tries to get the lighthouse door to take the key, and that's no fun. Also, the story was kinda predictable. The artwork was attractive and Italy is beautiful, of course, but I prefer a meatier story and longer game.

I laughed til I cried!
This is without a doubt one of the most unique games I have ever played. A man has just been made police chief and his "momma" finds out he's on a big investigation and decides since she misses him so much and he won't come home, she is going to go to Italy and "visit" him. Without giving anything away I can tell you that she is one step ahead of her son on the investigation all the way, even though she is constantly looking for him (?). Her comments and achievements throughout are enough to make me howl with laughter (she finds an unconscious man sans clothing cowering behind a barrel and collects his clothes for him so she can question him). The HO's are not in dark, dimly lit scenes, but can provide a challenge to find in that sometimes you have to "move" something else to get to them. The puzzles are frequent (too many for me) and lots I have never seen before. The scenery is gorgeous, the music unobtrusive, and the story line is fantastic. I don't normally play Hidden Object Games because I think about 98% of them are dark, ghoulish and I just don't care for that, BUT, since there are such slim pickings out there right now for anything else, I decided to try this one and I bought it about 20 minutes into the free trial. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did!
