Time Mysteries: Inheritance
Solid Hidden Object with some Adventure
I'm giving this 5 stars based on the release date of this game. All games are bound to become dated but for now this one holds up well. It does stick to a basic formula with some repeat actions. But, each time the theme is changed and I think the storyline keeps it interesting. It is a game you either enjoy as an entire package or not so much if you only want the game play. I love Match 3 so I really enjoyed the option of playing one for a while to earn more hints. I found myself using hints more freely just to play the Match 3 for a couple of minutes. The mini-games were fun and while "spot the difference" is not my favorite mini-game, they were short and easy to get through. This is actually the second time I played this game. I just got the sequel and wanted to refresh my memory on the storyline in case it carries over. I did not find it tedious to play even a second time. In general, if you want a basically fun game with moderate challenge and a decent storyline, you will enjoy this.

One of my favourites!
I do like this game! It was one of the early HOGs I bought and I have played it several times. True, it's not the most challenging game in the world and true, getting from one chapter to the next is a somewhat repetitive process but for me it has a number of good points:
1) It's set in England - very welcome to an ex-pat Brit. One of the HOS's even has a CRICKET bat to find. Yay!!
2) The storyline really appeals to me. The final scene/denouement is really up my street (no spoilers here!)
3) I love the music. I have a respectable collection of Mediaeval and Renaissance music and much of the music in the game is familiar to me.
4) I like the way you can recharge hints by playing a mini-game.
5) It's light and bright for the most part - no repeated dismal grey scenery.
[Aside: I wish that developers would get the message that there are lots of us out here who do NOT like the Twisted-Murder-In-Dark-Valley type of game, nor the depressing stories in sordid psychiatric hospitals.]
I play games for relaxation and this one fits the bill nicely. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, so try before you buy.

One of my medieval favorites!
Get ready for a medieval spin on this hidden objects game. Love the storyline and the fantasy travel on this one. Awesome addition to your hidden object collection.

Good and Execellent Games
I love this game. Especially, the hidden object sometimes hard to find.

Interesting, fun, not too challenging. Easy to follow.

One of the more enjoyable titles.
I liked it! One of the earlier games I played from Big Fish as it was the first one I ever saw on sale and I was not disappointed.
It's a pretty good length, so I'd say worth it even if it isn't on sale. The art is nice, storyline pretty good and the mini-games are pretty decent and fun.

A light hearted and fun HOG
I found this HOG to be amusing and fun with HOS that were fair and puzzles that were varied. I think I only found one or two puzzles which I thought to be boring enough to just skip. The cut scenes were text without voices, therefore a bit long, but they were well done and the plot was actually interesting. Don?t play this HOG expecting to find it difficult. It is easy entertainment and still interesting.

I really liked this game! The graphics are very nice, the story is good, and I enjoyed the HO's and puzzles. For me, this was a great little game to play, and I would definitely recommend it.

I'm buying this one
This one wasn't really hard, but interesting. The HO's were very pretty and some things were hard to find. I didn't like having to waste time on regarging the hints (match 3 game) though.

It grows on youA
At the start it seems too simple, too primitive, compared to more contemporary games, but then you notice that the settings tend to be beutiful, and also without obvious anchronisms. The characters we meet are pleasant enough (all members of the same family). There is enough of adventure to space the HOS. The HOS are not a random assortment of objects (except the archive room, of cour) but may be thematicallly related or be there logicallly (One HOS takes a whole room) If the HOS gets too tough, you can use the hints and then recharge them playing a match-3 minigame, which is a lot more fun than waiting for the HINT button to recharge.
In the end, it turns up that it was a lot of fun
