Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Game. I've had this game for over a year and just played it. At first, I thought it was going to be bad - based on the graphics and beginning story. But as I kept playing, it surprised me. Great use of your free game coupon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FIND THE MILLERS REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Its a new developer with more games to come under a different name. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Normal and Expert modes; * Diary; * Medallion to use. The graphics are good - not too bright and are well defined. Its easy to see everywhere and to find items you need. Sound is good. The music is orchestral, drums and piano. Its not too loud or overpowering and I had it on the whole time. There are a great variety of interactive hidden object games. Some are finding pairs, straightforward and finding items and putting them back in their right place. I really enjoyed doing these. There are not too many of them and I found the challenge excellent. The mini-games are varied, with different degrees of challenge. A few took me ages with getting things in the right order. None of these are frustratingly annoying or too hard but at the same time the challenge is there to keep even the experts happy. The mini-game at the end took me a long time to conquer. You will need speed and accuracy for this one. There is a fair bit of reading to do in the diary which tells you of the story's history and what to do next. This doesn't take long and I didn't mind reading it at all. There is a lot to do in this game, which I believe is a full on adventure. All up the game took me a good 7 hours playing on Expert mode which has the Hint and Skip turned off. Just make sure at the beginning of the game which mode you want to play because you cannot change it once you've started. Overall, a great game to play and definitely worth having a look. I'm going to be keeping an eye out for this developer in the future. They've got talent and can't wait to see what they come out with next. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Heard Of This Dev But I Think They're On To Something! Mr. Miller and his son were enjoying their Holiday, taking daily hiking excursions and exploring everything nature has to offer. They would return each night to the Big Pine Lodge eager to plan the next day's adventure, even Brody, an employee of the Lodge, accompanied them to show them interesting landmarks. The joy they experienced quickly turned into terror with the discovery of a mysterious necklace that summoned some type of demon. Clarkson the manager of the lodge has contacted you, a paranormal Detective, to search for the missing Miller's, but this innocent old man may not be on the up and up, and this investigation could turn out to be deadly.... I loved the graphics, the use of real (and likeable) characters and the top notch graphics. There aren't any frills, collectibles or extra's in this game, but the storyline is interesting, and every scene is chock full of activities. There are no gimmicky devices and no furry sidekicks, but nevertheless, this is a decent HOPA. The Hidden Object Scenes are extremely varied and multi-layered, Finding 6 pairs of related items, Finding color coded keys to unlock listed items, Fragmented finds and most of the scenes require you to replace the items back into the scene once all items have been found. Some of the items are a bit small and difficult to find, but overall the scenes are entertaining. The Mini Games are decent but tend to be on the easy side of the spectrum, and there's nothing really new, but again, I found them entertaining. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during this demo: 1) Find matching pairs of symbols. 2) Create a triangle by putting green gems into the intersection of the circles using rotational arrows. 3) Place files in a way that ensures they are linked together by colors. 4) Position Rosettes according to clues found. 5) Rotate individual pipes to complete the connection. 6) Rotate circular sections to create an image. This game proves that you don't always have to have all kinds of bells and whistles to create an entertaining game, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great to have a new studio in the neighborhood. I enjoyed this game thoroughly. Both visuals and audio are perfectly pleasant, there's nothing intrusive. The mini-games are well balanced and fun - and to my surprise not repetitive. Locations are interesting. It all looks quite scary in it's own “abandoned“ way, which I enjoyed very much. The voice acting is excellent and I especially love the idea of switchable main character. Story line was catching and it really kept me in till the end. I would sure like to see this not as Platinum but as a Collector's Edition. I also love the fact that such a large piece is produced by a totally new studio and not by any of the already known big game houses. Brings some fresh air to the scene. I believe this to be a good sign for us as players since there is still potential for new ideas. For me - this is a big thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised! This is the first time that I can remember playing a game by this developer and I have been a long time member of BFG. My review is based on the demo only. I, like the prior reviewer, was pleasantly surprised by the variations in the HOS. The objects were not hidden so deep in the scene that you could not find them and the hint charged quickly if you needed it. I consider myself an expert and I enjoyed the vast variations in each HOS. I also enjoyed the mini games as well as they were also not the normal run of the mill. There is a jump map which shows you where you have something to do. The scenery was nice but not exceptional in detail. I liked the simplicity of it. Since the game is on a 'special' I am definitely going to buy. According to the information listed there is also a bonus game, which is very rare on a SE version of a game. I think all who buy will enjoy the relaxed pace that I have seen so far and I can't wait to finish the entire game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a terrific game I'm always on the lookout for quality standard editions on which to spend my coupons 'cause I mostly buy CEs. This is one great game. Storyline is familiar, people lost, must find, evil lurking, but it's played out nicely. And I gotta tell you, the last scene had my heart pumping (lol) very intense battle with the demon. The hint system is very good and combined with the map it really helps to keep you on course. I mention this because BFG has no walkthrough. There is one on the net, but you probably won't need it unless you are really new at these types of game. Thanks for a great SE BF! Keep them coming. I've got more coupons than I can use. Wish you'd allow us to use two coupons or even three to purchase an CE game. That would be terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SURPRISE!! When I first looked at this game I thought it would be pretty bad. Decided to give it a try anyway. Surprise, surprise it is not a bad game after all. Actually it is quite fun. The drawing/graphics are not the best but it did not detract from the fun of the game. The HO's are pretty good (hate to admit it but I had to use the hint button twice) and some are inter-active. I play with the sound off so can't say anything about it. I played the demo to the end and promptly bought the game. This is a game you have to think to play and that is enjoyable to me instead of just finding stuff and not having to think. We have all seen the story-line before but this one has a few twists in it. Give the demo a try and see for yourself. I am going back to the game now. Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, solid, fun game Wow! What can I say? This game has all the appeal of a great adventure story without any of the gimmicky devices, helpful creatures, flashy artwork, or contrived minigames of some of the newer HOPAs. There's no blood and gore, no dead bodies, no creepy crawlies, and only one small, unscary spider. This is just solid, down and dirty, git her done, rescue the victims, and destroy the demon. Good graphics, a fast hint and skip recharge when playing on the casual level, good voiceovers, interesting storytelling, and fun gameplay. What a concept!
