3 Days - Amulet Secret
WHAT A GREAT GAME!
This was a really fun game to play. The story line was excellent, the puzzles varied and challenging, as were the HOS. There were a couple of glitches during play, where the conversation bubbles and introduction to the next scenes were absent. I had to quit and go back a couple of times to try to fix this, which worked once or twice, but not always. I was also unable to completely turn off the music for the game and ended up having to mute the speaker on my computer to get rid of it. I don't like to play with sound as it is too distracting. For those puzzles that were too hard or I just didn't want to spend any more time on, the ability to play a HOS instead of finishing the puzzle was a definite plus. The hint button worked like a charm. All in all, a really great game that held my interest the entire time.

More than a Hidden Object game!
Normally don't like hidden object games but this is fun and easy to follow. Lots of mini games which makes things interesting. Hint button replenishes quickly (yes I use those hints!). Good story line.
Hope there will be more of these 3 Days games. They're interesting and fun, not dark and ominous like the majority of the hidden object games.

Just as good as 3 Days Zoo
I really don't get it with the ones that put this game down. There is nothing wrong with this HO game. It is just like 3Days Zoo which I bought and will buy this one. Good HO's, if you are not a HO player then most HO games are not going to be good for you. The HO games that have been offered lately are terrible, the blood and guts along with the ghosts, vampires and death are the ones that are sickening, besides you aren't playing them you have to have the blogs, the walk throughs, the strategy guides at least HO's like this one you don't need to be told or shown how to play, you use your own brain. I wish they would have more of the Mystery PI's and others like that instead of the ones I mentioned above. HO players you will like this one if you liked 3 Days Zoo. I do not have music playing while I play games so I cannot comment on it.

Older game, only one level, some objects hard to see and cartoon animation. Interesting games, not sophisticated but easy to follow, didn't get bored with demo, hint button worked fine but lost points when used. It is a great beginners game and it was a change of pace from the intense games that are now available. Definitely more family oriented. Not a bad game at all.

Turned out to be a good game
When I first started playing this game I thought it was very vague and confusing trying to figure out what to do and the built in help did not add much assistance but I carried on with it, worked it out and found it wasn't a bad game after all. Anna had to solve an ancient riddle while travelling around the world searching for an amulet that will save the world. The dialogue was ok, just enough to tell you what's going on but some parts seemed a bit trivial and became a nuisance. The intro scenes were a bit primitively depicted but the actual game scenes were clear and colourful and decidedly better. Some of the puzzles were quite involved and took some brain power to solve them but others were more on the easier side. Some of the hidden objects were to find fragmented parts of statues while most of the others were clear and bright and reasonably easy to locate. In the end I quite enjoyed this game as it seemed to get better as it progressed.

Lot's Of Interaction
This is a hidden object game with many interactive goals. The very first scene has you searching for items by uncovering and moving objects. Then you must put items back into the scene with only a small picture for reference as to the placement. The next scene is even more interactive you scroll between 3 different scenes searching for items and then use those items to repair things. The mini games were good, I liked the game where you had to search for hidden words in a book. Nice game, enjoy!

Not up to par
I didn't finish it. I don't like it when you can't get out of a puzzle by skipping. You are being forced to find things that are too hard to find. Didn't care for it.

It was ok. I could have been much better.

Just like all the rest
This game is too boring. Not unlike many others of the same genre.

What an Awful Game!
Again something pulled from the attic for the deal of the day. There is nothing about this game I found redeeming. From the fact there is no mode selection, no map, you can't skip the cut scenes, and it doesn't save your place whenever you exit the game.
After playing the first HOS I exited the game and picked it up about 30 minutes later. To my surprise it started from the beginning and not where I had left off. That was off putting.
The first HOS was too dark and the second there was a star which was in a bright white cloud -- even when using the hint (which says skip) I couldn't see the star. When using the hint/skip you must have your eyes on the entire scene because the hint only last a second or two and then disappears. I had to wait for the skip/hint to reload and hold my laptop far enough away so I could see the entire scene --- only then was I able to see the hint.
At that point I wanted to exit the game, but couldn't because it immediately started a cut scene and I had to wait for it to play out.
I only played 25 minutes of the demo but that was enough for me to decide not to purchase. Far too many great games offered from BF to choose this low budget wreck of a game (IMHO).
As always I recommend you play the demo and read some reviews to make up your mind. For me this is a no buy and I don't recommend it.
