Great old school fun. Good for beginners! This game is a hoot!! The story line is tongue-in-cheek and meant to be humorous and not taken seriously. Yes, there's a lot of hand holding. Yes, it's the old school hidden object type scenes Yes, there are no morphing objects, collectibles or animal helpers. Yes, it's a laid back game, perfect for sipping tea & munching on cheesy poofs. And yes, it's an old game. Requiring one to install the additional DirectX app is always a dead giveaway of an older game. But you can just hit cancel and the game will install anyway. The fact that the main characters are named after those in the Rocky Horror Picture Show made me laugh as well. This is a great old style hidden object game with no bells, no whistles. It's something different and I recommend you give it a try. March 21, 2016
SUBTLE HUMOR, LIGHTHEARTED, RELAXING, EXCELLENT STORYLINE AND CHARACTERS with PERSONALITY! Not your typical game; so different to what is coming out in 2016. I felt like I?d watched a funny movie. This won?t be everyone?s cup of tea. You get to play as both Brad and Janet. Their car having broken down outside the European village of Franken Burg, they meet various characters in their quest to get back on the road, and get involved in the lives of the villagers. The only thing I didn?t like were the pointers on the screen showing you which directions you have the choice of going in. Beginners might find it frustrating because of the hint style. GRAPHICS: Loved the scenery, the crumbling outside of the castle on the cliff, the European style village, steep hills with cobbles, the Tudor houses, the windmill, the farm? You get widescreen or full screen, both looked good. Colors were NATURAL looking. HOPS: 15? The look of the HOPS was more basic, but they were so much fun. You get a giant floating eye to indicate HOPS.I discovered accidentally, that using the scroll on your mouse, you can zoom in!! Infact you can zoom in at any point anywhere in the game! Great idea! Nothing was too hidden. PUZZLES: 15? You get a floating jigsaw puzzle piece to indicate puzzle to do. SOUNDS: EXCELS IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOUNDS, which vary as you move from place to place. Music was nice but repetitive and thankfully on a separate control. No voice overs. Note, there is no volume control inside the game. If you switch screen option, from the main menu options, you will see your computer task bar, and so you can change it from there (well, you can on mine). HINT: Takes about 90 seconds to recharge. There are no choices in difficulty levels. The hint will give you written clues what to do next. No leading. No circling of items. MAP: NONE, but you really don?t need it. One way leads into the village, and one way leads out. The farm and the woods lie outside the village and it?s all one big circle eventually. INVENTORY: NOT lockable, but once you click on the word ?inventory? it stays up until you move on to a different scene. You need to drag items. JOURNAL: NONE CHARACTERS: Very, very good. Someone has given these characters PERSONALITY. There are no voice-overs. What they say, how they respond, and their facial expressions say it all! You read their conversation. EXTRA: You get hidden Frankenstein Monster faces in the surroundings to find, which give you bits of trivia on the subject March 25, 2016
MAYBE OLD BUT STILL GOOD I kind of like the "old" style of HOG with no frills, morphs, trophies, etc., etc. If I want a HOG, then that's what I want to do; play HOS. I played the full demo and played at least 3 HOS and 2 mini games. I was totally defeated by the fountain pipes game because it seemed that if I didn't get the pipes attached quickly enough, they reset and I had to start over again. Here is where I found the tutorial and hint system to be less than helpful. The lock game also defeated me mainly because I ran out of time before I could figure it out. The hour passed very quickly as I was totally engrossed in the play. The HOS were also challenging; I used the hint button a lot. The items were very well hidden, like behind flowing water, etc. As with every HOG, you have to get used to how the HOS are set up and they get easier the more familiar you get with the particular game's style. I found this true of this game also; I had an easier time with the 2nd HOS than the first. The British environment of the game added a little more difficulty for this American. I did love the graphics for the the characters; Janet's face turning red when she gets mad at Brad, tears running down their faces, etc. Gave me some chuckles. Considering how easy most HOG are for me, this was a breath of fresh air, that I would have to work a little harder at solving it. It maybe an oldie, but it is still a goodie. March 21, 2016
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE GRAPHICS!!! I really liked this game. I don't know if it's because I've been playing them since 2008 give or take, which makes ME "old school" for casual games.... because this game, of course, is old school. The graphics are crystal clear and realistic. I wish all games looked like this. I have ALWAYS loved the plain list hidden obj scenes. These hidden object scenes were well organized and they actually had really good hidden items...Which is the main reason for a game like this. Back when, there were large file "adventure" games... and the hidden object game, like this. It wasn't until around 2010 that mixing BOTH of these genres gave life to the games of today that we love so much. I can still appreciate "the way it was" and will probably end up buying this. This game may not appeal to everyone though. There are no bells and whistles, no maps etc. I really miss the voice actors. The hint/skip system is so slow you can feel yourself aging. Is this a great game, no. But did I enjoy my time playing it? Yes. I think mostly because I just loved the gorgeous graphics so much. March 21, 2016
Fun game Based on demo I'm still no great fan of hidden object games but this one is charming. The puzzles do have a good level of challenge, the storyline is silly in a good way it's a little bit bonkers and unexpected. it is very old fashioned but I don't think that's a bad thing in itself. The scenes are well done, the HOS are clear but still need to look for the items and there are some strange characters to interact with. It's not going to suit many of the people who like the polished games like MCF but it's a good game if you are fed up with the general skull, gore and creepy doll theme of so many HOGs. I would have rated it 5 but there were too many HOS for me. Give it a go. March 23, 2016
Just misses being a buy for me There are a lot of good things about this if you don't mind basic, old school game play. I like how the dev puts tidbits of history and interesting facts in the game to find, the story was cute and didn't take itself seriously and I thought the graphics in the hidden puzzles was very good and rather challenging. However some of the puzzles were maddening, like a pipe game that reset itself after 30 seconds. I don't like timed games anyway and that was nowhere near enough time for me to figure it out. Another was a fishing game that require you to catch 100 fish. ONE HUNDRED! That's when I stopped. I played 29 minutes and enjoyed it but those two puzzles were enough to put me off the game.

A Very Basic Game ... Graphics OK, Sound/Music Poor ... With No Frills ... Brad & Janet ??? ... A Real Rocky Horror Game Would Have Been Fun ... I Used A Voucher And Played It Out To The End ... I Had Nothing Else To Play And Was Bored ... The Game Is Also Pretty Bland & Boring So It Didn't Provide A Great Deal Of Entertainment ... Even The Kids Hated It ... Try Before You Buy ... March 24, 2016
Trial Done. Possible buy. It's an ok game Ok, so first off, I LOVE the Rocky Horror Picture Show references and the hidden frank heads with neat trivia. Beyond that, the game lacks much in the line of a good story and the music is horrible. So another one played on MUTE. The characters are pretty cheesy, but I think that is the point. The hidden objects are pretty hard to find in some cases, which is a nice change. Graphically it's pretty good. I may go ahead and buy though it's not got much of a grip on me story wise. The puzzles so far have been easy and the jump scare got me good...loved that addition. Overall I give it an OK. March 23, 2016
The Monster Here Is the Game Itself When they dug this out of the moth balls and offered it up as the game of the day, someone perfectly illustrated a point - we really don't need a game of the day if the "new" game is this old and lame. Janet and Brad have car trouble at the top of the hill, where gentlemanly Brad lets Janet push the car till he gets it started. At the bottom of the hill, it stops again at the entrance to a medieval looking village. Brad goes looking for assistance while Janet refuses to leave the vehicle. First we accompany Brad into the village where a lot of nothing happens. Then we switch to Janet, who finds herself in a strange cabin with a headache. Both times we have mini-games and simple list HOPs. Good stuff: There are the usual game elements done in a very minimal style most suited for really basic beginners. (My grandchildren ages five to ten years have been doing these games for a couple of years now - this is too easy for them.) There are "Frankenstein" faces found in each scene. When you select them you get a pop-up window with some interesting factoid. The artwork is decent, although the characters are more cartoon-like than otherwise. Bad Stuff: EVERYTHING else. The game is a throwback to the beginning of the genre. Scenes and game elements load slowly. Dialogue is read, instructions are less than helpful, and the hand-holding provided by large stark white logos on the screen was overbearing. As for a story-line, you've got Brad, Janet, and the inoperative auto outside a backwoods village and not a lot of anything else. All that said, I gave it two stars since another reviewer made a valid point - this is a good game for a very timid beginner. I just don't know anyone that new to these types of games. Please try the demo before you buy. March 22, 2016
Too old to amuse I'm afraid I only made it a little over 10 minutes into the game, before I backed out and deleted. Old school is one thing, but I prefer a game that isn't from the "dark ages" of computers. I didn't even see the option to choose "casual, expert, or whatever". Just type in your name and go. The first HO I did, it was difficult to make out the objects. I got down to one item left and hit the hint button. When I saw the area it highlighted, I STILL couldn't make out the shape, So I just clicked where told and went on. Anyway, for those who like REALLY old games, this may be for you. For me, not so much. March 21, 2016
