Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyed this game. This game was between a 5 and 4 for me. I decided to go with the 5 based on the graphics, beautiful colors in the scenes and the story line was interesting. Overall it was a nice game to play using my free game code. I would buy more games from this developer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great game!! I really like this game. Not so dark and gloomy, as is the usual fare for this type. The map is very helpful and will transport you to the area you need to be in. Very helpful. REally cuts down on the back and forth thing. It's also nice to have inventory items that aren't kept so long before they come into play. Decent story line, altho that is not really a deal breaker for me in any game. It's nice to just have a pleasant, easy to navigate game with nicely done graphics. (Based on SE.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puzzling Fun BASED ON COMPLETED GAME FIRST IMPRESSIONS When I played the demo for this game, I thought it a nice little game, professionally done, and fun to play. Well, that is certainly all true, but it is even better than that. I had a really good time with this, and my only regret is that I didn’t buy the CE, not for the bling (although that would be fun), but for the SG. For the puzzles. SIGHTS & SOUNDS The atmosphere of this game is quite creepy, even though it is set in the blazing sunlight of a beautiful Greek day. The graphics, especially in the cut scenes, are extraordinarily well crafted, and throughout the look and feel of Greece is faithfully conveyed. Colours are bright and bold, most locations are airy, and everything is captured in loving detail. The music was lovely too. Not especially “Greek”, whatever that may mean in today’s terms, but sweet and pleasant, and again, airy. The voiceovers were excellent too. And the sounds outside were great. WHAT’S HAPPENING? Well, that’s the puzzling part. You are an investigative journalist, come to check out a story about the accidental death of a famous sculptor and his wife “under suspicious circumstances”. You arrive to find your contact, the local doctor, dead by the same means – instantaneous encasing in stone. Your suspicions first fall on his assistant, but then... I’ll let you try to figure out the rest. This is one game that kept me guessing (wrongly) to the very end. GAMEPLAY The gameplay is fairly standard, with the difference that there are more puzzles than usual. They range in difficulty from very easy to darn near impossible, and I really did miss the SG, because they are puzzles I’d like to be able to understand. They look really interesting. The HOPs come in two types, interactive lists and progressive silhouettes. Each is visited twice. The 3D map is wonderful to look at, interactive and gives immediate tasks. The hint is directional. You can use the map to ‘jump’ to distant locations. The game is logical, with not too much to and fro, with the chapters reasonably well separated, with clear directions to follow most of the time. So, apart from the puzzles, I found this an easy game. I loved the way we covered different aspects of Greek history in the course of the game. Chariots, stargazers, the gods. With each transition to a new area pain free and smooth. COMBINED IMPACT I heartily recommend this game as a really enjoyable and entertaining way to spend some time. No, it is not overly glamorous, but it has all the right components for a fun experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game. I've played both the Dark Canvas games and loved them both. The HOGs (hidden object games) or if you prefer HOS hidden object scenes) are very good. They are interactive where you have to use things you find again in the scene. The story line kept me wanting to play on. Most of the mini games are easy which I loved, but I did skip some of them but not as many as I have in other games. There is a map and BF offers a handy walkthrough. The walkthroughs come in very handy when I've been away from a game -- it allows me to read what happened previously. I also keep it open and if I get stuck I just alt-tab and go right to it. I really wish there were more of these games. I loved this game but loved Brush with Death more. I bought both SE versions of these games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an enjoyable game played casual, low sound. hints/skips charge in 60 seconds. you are trying to solve who is murdering the people by turning them to statues. there is a diary and a map but i don't think it is interactive. i tried to jump places and got nowhere. could have a sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST BUY Based on the demo. As soon as the demo ended I didn't hesitate, I purchased it right away. Voiceovers, background music, and visuals are great. Storyline is interesting and entertaining. Hidden Object scenes went from moderately easy to moderately hard. They were all interactive and a lot of fun. The mini puzzles were great, also a lot of fun. At one point the player is asked to make a blanket for two shivering kittens. There were cute little animal helpers in the game. This is a cute little hidden object game for all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful game - good fun you are an investigative reporter asked by a doctor in a small Greek coastal town to follow up on the death of his friends, an artist and his wife. They had been involved in an 'accident' in the artist's studio: encased in plaster and made into statues! There are villains - the creepy Christo and the elusive Helen, an interesting story-line with HOGs and fairly easy puzzles. I usually turn the music off but this music was quite pleasant with a slightly menacing undertone. The game is beautifully presented with many references to Greek myths and lovely scenery. I really loved the plump little kitten.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting storyline with abundance of HO games. This game fits in the mid-length category, not too short, not too long. Graphics are excellent and HO games well done with numerous objects that are clear and visible. Mini games are interesting but not a fan of them, but those who are will enjoy them. I even finished a couple. I wonder why the developers use the same repetitious music that eventually becomes annoying in most of these games. Turning it down does the job, but it’s a shame because music could provide so much more atmosphere to all these games. The storyline has logic and moves forward with interesting new scenes and well done scenes. The map is useful and shows you where your current objectives are and where there will be new ones. There is a lot of moving back and forth, but it’s for a good purpose and not overdone like in some games where that is all you do is jump back and forth until it becomes exasperating. A few times I found a linking object in a HO game and when I tried to connect it to its matching object it didn’t work, just keep trying if you know you are right. Sometimes inventory items make you scratch your head and wonder “whatever” but eventually there is a purpose. Sometimes inventory gets a little full, but that takes care of itself pretty fast. I had to laugh in the beginning. You have to find powdered milk to mix with water for a kitty, when was the last time you used powdered milk? Love the critter helpers, keep them coming, they are cute, fun and make me smile! Sardines in a can, if I remember right they are usually packed in like “sardines” but in this case it was just one big old fish. Gives you a moment to think a bit and realize that in some cultures objects might be just a little different from how others see them.
