Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game Hidden Object This game keep your mind moving as you look for the next clue. This is not an easy hidden object game it is a game with many what I do next? So get ready for one of the best Hidden Object Games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST 2.99 EVER !! Have finished trial & bought. Have never seen hidden object scenes that were so interactive. Lots to do & lots of fun. If you like HO at all, you have to try this one !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW, what a wonderful game!!! I loved this game. It wasn't perfect, but was pretty close for me. The graphics looked great, especially in the hidden object scenes, which were nicely constructed. Most scenes had interactive things to do, including puzzles - some of which were good enough to be stand alone puzzles! I liked that there wasn't a lot of hand holding, like most other games. Although, I did have to consult the walkthru for the last puzzle, since there wasn't a skip for it. Overall, this was extremely fun to play. I highly recommend it, and can't wait for more from this developer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get ready for some fun!! Don't know how I missed this game when it first came out but sure glad I found it. This game is different from the usual Hidden Object games in that during the mini-games there are other mini-games hidden inside them. Not all things you need to find are in the games either. Run your mouse around the room and see what is there that you may need. You have to really think and explore with this game. There are games I have never seen before and really enjoyed something new to do. Very good and alot of fun. Sound and story line are great. Help button is good. Enjoy it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game My daughter and I had a blast! The graphics were beautiful and clear. The hidden object scenes were challenging and fun. Can't wait to see more from the creators. Only wished the game was a little bit longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Timepass liked it quite a lot. the minigames were good too. also the hint fills up at moderate time so i can easily skip wherever i want. a nice game indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Howlville - For a Howling Good Time! Challenging, fun graphics, can't comment on sound/music because I play without sound. Took me 6-8 hours which seemed like a good value for the money, didn't even get through the gate in the trial hour, but maybe I'm just slow. ;-) I had to use the walkthrough a few times when I was just confused about where to go or what to do next, just to lower my level of frustration! I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Game Whole concept was so totally different from othe hidden object games. Loved the puzzles, made you think. Hint button very helpful, this game made you not want to use hint button. Really enjoyed playing. My grand-daughter loved it and she doesn't usually like hidden object games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Committee-made game The visual qualities of this game are astounding and beautifully crafted. The problem I have with this sort is it looks like someone created a fantastic game then someone else said we have to have a monster. An over-the-top one at that. The quality of the monster is ridiculous when overlaid on this game. Even the name is designed around the monster - not the beautiful quality of the crafting. The artwork is fantastic the monster artwork is infantile and insulting. I can't help but feel how much better this game would have been with a normal "bad guy."
