The Mystery of the Crystal Portal is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very different HOG! I picked this up for the Kindle Fire, and found it to be very engaging... I liked the fact that you had to find an object and then items to put INTO each object. Something definitely different from most HOG games. I've played this twice now, and the 2nd time, only took me a day. I'm not sure if that's good or bad... *laugh* It was a fun game, and I will be playing it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SOLID ENTERTAINING GAME Game length: about 4 ½ hours on casual. Gameplay is straight forward: Fill in the circles of key objects and visit the next location. Visit Japan, the Alps, Guatemala, Africa and Russia in a quest for the parts of the crystal portal key. Appears to be no excessive clicking penalty. At least I encountered none, but then I would expect no penalty because you have to search a lot of objects to find the key objects before filling in the circles, and sometimes you have to click something away like a snowdrift or a box in order to expose an item needed to complete the circle. Some items are well defined; others well blended in. Expect to use hints for items in the latter category. Hint recharges in about 40 seconds. Artwork is beautiful for all 5 countries and dialogue is to the point. Somewhat challenging because the background is usually crowded with a lot of colorful items. A good entertaining game seeming to be aimed at novices and intermediates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different...In a Good Way My first thought was this was going to be a silly game for people who want things as easy as possible. I soon realized I was wrong. The game seemed confusing and a bit difficult, but that quickly turned to challenging and interesting. This isn't your usual Hidden Object game. Not the greatest graphics, or story line (at least it was short and not a novel), but for the first time in a long time I played an entire game in one sitting. Another plus in my opinion was having mini-games that weren't above or below the level of the game. This was good because there were no "skips". The confusion at the beginning was because I wasn't sure exactly what I was supposed to do, but it was easy enough to figure out. Perhaps a future update could add a tutorial, or at least an example. I doubt that I'll play again, but for a night of interesting fun, I'd give this one an 8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really interesting Hidden objects game. I thought the game was quite a challenge. It was fun, there were so many changes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly "brain-bending"! This game took a little while to work out what you were supposed to be doing - not because it was hard, but because there was no instructions. Then it was relatively easy to whiz through the rest of the game. I still don't know what the "Crystal Portal" was - won't bother playing again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boring... This game is slow and boring... There are no specific HOS; the location contains the objects to find. The idea is good, but it's so slow. The cut-scenes are slow. Changing location is slow. The mini-games are very easy. I needed 1 1/2 hours to finish. I wonder how fast I could have finished if the game wasn't so slow...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not crazy about this game This game was nowhere near as good as the sequel, which I enjoyed and would recommend. It is basically a HOG with a few small puzzles added. Not interactive. It was repetitive and boring and illogical and you could never figure out what you were supposed to be doing. I just sat there and waited for the hint button to fill so I could just get it over with. Normally I would say it was too short but in this case I was glad when it was over. The concept wasn't bad, just the execution. They got it right in the sequel, so just start with the second one and don't bother with this one.
