Ms. Holmes: Five Orange Pips Collector's Edition is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~~MS. HOLMES RETURNS IN A SEQUEL MUCH BETTER THAN IT'S PREDECESSOR!~~ For a veteran HOPA developer like Elephant Games, it is easy enough to rely on proven hits and continue to develop sequels for those catalog series. Thus, I really appreciate how Elephant Games innovates and comes up with a new series once in a while – Detectives United, Paranormal Files, Halloween Stories, and Ms. Holmes: The Monster of the Baskervilles are some of the recent examples. I really enjoyed Ms. Holmes: Five Orange Pips far better than the last edition because it incorporated a new character...Oscar Watson,.the son of Doctor Watson! You're also going to be surprised who the villain is in this edition too! HINT - Who was Sherlock Holmes arch Enemy??? I have also resigned to the fact that if you're going to play any of the numerous Elephant HOPA's you're going to be searching for lots of Amulets these days...but I don't mind. It makes the investigation last longer at least. When it comes to the visuals, Ms. Holmes: Five Orange Pips is expectedly on-point. The mysterious and gloomy environment is appropriate for a game of this nature, this goes the same for the ominous background music. I also think Elephant developers splurged with their budget because the graphics look nice and polished which was not implemented in the last edition of Ms. Holmes. Ms. Holmes Five Orange Pips is offered as a Collector’s Edition, which might be worth the price when on sale IMHO. It offers players roughly 4 hours of play including the Bonus chapter. The bonus section includes the usual bling: a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, repayable hidden object scenes, repayable puzzles, achievements, collectibles, and morphine objects (which are so overrated) LOL. Try this second edition because it is an improvement over the first game, just don't pay full price like I did or wait until the SE is released in a month or less. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Addicted I recently played the first game. I had not enjoyed the free trial when the game was released and had never purchased it. It was offered as a special recently, and I bought it. I'm so glad I did because it was a wonderful game. So when this new game in the series came out a day later, I snapped it up without playing it. I never do that, but took a chance. I'm glad I did because I loved everything about this game. The artwork and atmosphere were great, and I enjoyed the storyline. I hope we get more of these games, and that is why I am reviewing this. There are some who didn't enjoy this game, but others have, and it would be a shame if this series ended. Please bring us more, but try not to take so long between releases next time, and please make the game longer! These are way too short! In fact, the short length almost caused me to remove one star. It only took four hours to complete, and that is not enough game play for a CE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh yeah! I mostly don't review anymore because there are so many more in depth than what I do. And it's extraordinarily rare that I give a 5 star review, but this is more than a 4! I never listen to the music or voice overs; my main goal is keeping the brain alert. It is SO refreshing to not have the centuries old graphics story line, or skulls and skeletons rushing at me. It's just a good, old fashioned mystery to solve in an entertaining way. Kudos to the developers! I only played the demo but am on my way to purchase the full game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Welcome Back, Ms. Holmes! What we have here, in my opinion, is another fine little mystery case in the very capable hands of Ms. Holmes. I really enjoyed the first game and today's release is quite entertaining as well. It is nice to see Mr. Watson is going to help solve the mystery. Has he inherited his grandfather's knack of collecting and deciphering clues? I appreciate the absence of demons and dark magic that dominate most games these days. It's fun to play something without the evil overtones. Elephant Games did a great job with the storyline, the characters, the excellent graphics and overall scenery. There is just the right amount of HOPs and puzzles, for me, and the HOP scenes show off better-than-average graphics in this new release. I like all the HOPs and puzzles so far. I always like the challenge of finding the collectibles and morphs, but must admit it is hard to keep track of the items without an indicator to keep me informed. I wish one was available here. So I opt to pay less attention to them when that feature is missing, in order to concentrate more on the story. Maybe not a big deal to some gamers but, for me, achievements add more fun. With only 3 chapters, I don't know how long it will take me to finish the game, as I play quite slowly so I can enjoy every little detail, and I do always count on a Bonus Chapter for at least an additional hour. I'm having a good time playing "Five Orange Pips" and at this point feel confident in recommending it. A good game for all skill levels with the 4 game modes available. I like to try each, sometimes I don't find much difference between them at all. But for demos I usually prefer the Custom Mode for the sake of saving time. I think a 5 star rating is appropriate and feel that my buying the CE version was a good decision. Others of you may not agree with my opinion of this new Ms. Holmes mystery game, that's why the demo is so handy-dandy. I never shop without it. I saw a rainbow today, just when I needed it the most.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply put "I loved it!" I have always referred to women friends who love life, a bit eccentric and loyal and true as "pips" true seeds of life. Fun series to look forward to. Good work team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GENERATIONAL FAMILY DRAMA REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 3 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 36 pages (My Time – 5 Hours) Join Sharlotte Holmes as she sleuths her way through the second case in this series. Upon wrapping up a case, she returns home to find it burglarized. Other citizens are being targeted by this burglar as well, all receiving five (5) orange seeds and a message to contact Holmes. Someone is out for revenge, but who is it and why? Joining the budding detective on this case is the grandson of John Watson, Oscar. However, unfortunately, our debonair Mr. Watson will be of little help, spending most of this time trying to recuperate from being poisoned by a “doozy of a floozy “in a game set in the 1930’s. This game is a sleuth lover’s delight. The story behind the game is excellent with an active pace and plenty of activities to keep a player engaged. The game is somewhat short; however, it has all the quality and excellence of other games from this developer. I found the graphics excellent especially in some of the HOP scenes. There is some subtle humor as well to break up the intensity of the game. Some of the collectibles are puzzle pieces to play four jigsaw puzzles. Other collectibles include items related to Sharlotte Holmes, with each one providing information on how it is relevant to Ms. Holmes. There are morphing objects in each scene of the game. I found all easy to locate. However, I wish this developer would provide some type of device to indicate what collectibles are within each scene and if they have been collected. I always find it difficult to know (without looking at the strategy guide) what collectibles are within each scene and if I have collected them all. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 22 achievements. • Collect 12 items connected to Sharlotte Holmes • Collect 26 morphing objects • Collect 42 picture fragments to create 4 jigsaw puzzles • 8 wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 12 mini-games and 11 HOP scenes at the end of the game which are hidden within the archives There are eleven (11) HOP scenes and all can be replayed at the end of the game. There are also seven (7) mini-HOP scenes in which six items are to be located either through a list or through silhouette. Although there are not many HOP scenes, they vary in style. Besides lists of items and silhouette, there is a search and replace scene in which items are discovered and then used to uncover other objects. There is also a placement scene in which items are put into the scene in the proper location. There are nineteen (19) mini-games, twelve (12) of which can be replayed at the end of the game. I found them creatively designed and consisting of a variety of those which are easy with those of middle difficulty. Most of the mini-games are thematic, having a nautical theme. There is a new type puzzle in this game. On a grid with sliders and open spaces, move the sliders up, down, and sideways using arrows at the top and sides to uncover three images. Move the sliders until all three images appear. BONUS CHAPTER: It is a case of a runaway bride, one who ends up dead at her own wedding. Sharlotte Holmes is attending a wedding of her friend, Susie. However, when her friend ends up murdered in the hallway of the reception hall, Holmes and the police detective, Gordon Wood, are off to investigate. Who wanted her killed and why? Learn the sad story of this bride and why she was poisoned on the happiest day of her life. This is an excellent addition to the game and worthy the collector’s edition designation. The chapter is long with a good pace. There are six (6) mini-games and (2) HOP scenes and two (2) mini-HOP scenes. To me, the activities are of the same caliber as those in the main game . SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Maze puzzle. Lead a ship to port using arrows to maneuver it while avoiding obstacles within its path. B. Rotating tiles puzzle. Rotate four disks with indentations to create openings for 4 skeleton keys each created from the spines from sea animals. C. Origami puzzle. Fold a map so that it shows where it leads. D. Sequence puzzle. Place cards into sequential position demonstrating how to tie a nautical knot. E. Assembly puzzle. Place stones into four columns as per a given diagram. BONUS CHAPTER: F. Rope puzzle. Untangle ropes so not intersect with each other. Switch knots to untangle them G. Matching puzzle. Place different styles of dowels into place on a grid to create a punch card which matches a given one. The items must be placed upside-down on the grid. H. Matching puzzle. Match up like items to escape a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 out of 5! bingo This game got me pumped, thrilled, and restored my believe in HOG's. Beautifully crafted, a bit witty, with character for sure, it wins you over after the first minutes of gameplay. The title gots you thinking... Ms. Holmes... really? But, trusted me, you will enjoy this game till the very end. Can't wait for the next "episode" to come out. Bravo Team! my score: 5/5!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why Am I Craving Oranges? I like everything about the game except most of the mini-games and a lack of a user friendly collectible and morphing indicator. I can't tell you how many times I had to count up these items from the in guide to make sure I had every thing. You can't go back and get them if you miss them. The achievements has a nice item that you achieve. My favorite is the Precious Item. I have all the achievement except the complete all mini-games. Even with the guide there are mini-games I couldn't do. Wish skip was zero wait. The mini-games I like are the birds, knots, boat, matching, piano, flags and making a pass card. I didn't like the rest of them. I like the 4 jigsaw from the 42 puzzle pieces. I like that the strategy guide is accessible after the game. The map will list if you have a puzzle piece that you still need to pick up in a close location. The map also gives you access to your collectibles, puzzle and achievements. The bonus chapter has a planned wedding. Liked the story. I liked this the second game in the series better than the first one called The Monster of the Baskervilles. Enjoyed the 26 morphs and 12 collectibles. The 42 puzzle pieces could be tricky because you pass the scene twice over and have to come back and open something to pick one up. The archives has replays on 11 hops and 12 mini-games. I wonder if they consider this the secret room? You have One screensaver. Eight wallpapers, 8 concept art and 4 music. Has 3 chapter + bonus. Options has Brightness. Enjoyable game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trial: Held my Interest. Moved Forward. Graphics offer gamma to lighten if desired. Attention to detail is evident. The characters are good and voice overs adult! The story moves right along with tasks that don't take forever to complete. Of course, when the lockpick came into play I wanted to run screaming through the house, but fortunately the developer made it simple...maybe a bit of tongue in cheek because so many of us screamed in desperation to spare us the dastardly lockpick game! I liked the story clarity that moved forward and found the entire trial enjoyable. So, Ms. Holmes meets Oscar, the grandson of Watson. Another match...may I presume? One critique is the first hidden object game was a bit dark even with lighter gamma and a few items were hard to see...a bit small. Since I avoid mini games, someone else will have to rate them. So far this was a fun experience. I'll wait to read the full reviews before considering purchasing this one, but based on what I've already observed this one has potential.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's just ok This game is ok, not very long but still somewhat entertaining even though i got bored towards the end and guessed who the bad guy was going to be at the start of the game, the scenery was very nice and the game play was smooth but there seems to be a few inconsistencies between this game and the first game, in the first game it's hinted that the press nicknamed the main character 'Ms Holmes' because she was smart and had the same detective skills as Sherlock but in this game she's now the granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, which was a bit strange at first, the only other thing that annoyed me was Oscar Watson the grandson of John Watson, he seemed to be a useless character that talked really slow and who's only purpose was to give a sense of urgency when he gets poisoned.
