Agency of Anomalies: Cinderstone Orphanage is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots to do, different kind of HOG, played on "Advance" Another game I thoroughly enjoyed BECAUSE it isn't the typical cookie-cutter games pumped out. The Hogs were a mix of both find items listed and place items. The graphics are gorgeous! This game has a mixture of super easy, moderate and challenging tasks, especially without a map, but don't let that discourage you because you can "hint" as you go through rooms and on the 3rd "hint" (if I remember correctly) it will show you were to go. Highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A surprisingly enjoyable game with an engaging story You are at your desk reading your newspaper when a wind blows over a bottle of ink spilling it on the paper. Suddenly, the spilled ink stain becomes an apprition that asks for your help to find out what happened to the preceptress and the children at the Cinderstone orphanage for paranormal ability. There was a fire that damaged part of the orphanage some time ago and it has been struggling to continue operation since then. The storyline and character depth were excellent with interesting character interaction that gave it a substance not often found in a game. As you investigate the orphanage, you discover pages scattered throughout that help provide the backstory through cutscenes. During your search you meet ghosts of children with different abilities that you interact with to gain their trust and by helping them find peace and these abilities are then transferred to you and help you to further your investigation. Examples of the abilities are to enlarge small things, see through walls, telekinesis, restore objects and make picture subjects real. Really quite a nice touch and useage of abilities. The hidden object screnes were primarily of two types: Find obects and place objects. Both were well done and the puzzles were nicely intergrated into the story and were not overly hard. The graphics were very well done giving the feeling of being in a rundown, struggling institution that had suffered a catastrophe and was barely surviving. The music was repetitive but not unpleasant and the voiceovers were well developed to the character. I have recently purchased the other three in the series and am looking forward to playing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Orphanage For Children With Paranormal Abilities! An explosion at the Cinderstone Orphanage on Christmas Eve. needs the special investigative skills that only the Agency of Anomalies can provide. These children aren't just orphans, they are children with fantastic abilities, paranormal abilities! The founder of the orphanage has a special ability as well, she can change the size of any object, but she and the children have vanished! When you arrive at the orphanage you soon find out that the residents are trapped between this world and the world beyond. Could the device designed to enhance paranormal activity be responsible? Not only do you have to find and fix parts blown away by the explosion, but you learn that the paranormal abilities are linked to earthly possessions which are also scattered about by the explosion. Once you find an individual's favorite earthly possessions such as musical instruments or books, that person will give you their ability or power to "see" through walls or enlarge a useful item. The hidden object scenes are mostly interactive list finds with a riddle to solve and find for the last item. There are also scenes where you have to put items from the inventory back into a scene such as placing a third Teddy Bear with the other two already in the scene. There are some really good mini games. The one I enjoyed the most was several keyholes that required you to place a silver key shape on the left and a gold key shape on the right to match the shape of the keyhole, and there were more key shapes than needed. The only complaint I have is with the fact that there is no map and you had to either remember what and where the rooms were or use the hint button which would only say nothing to do here. However, there might be a map feature in the CE version. Did anybody else notice that all of the other games in this series, including the CE, are listed as "The Agency of Anomalies", and this one is listed under the a's. simply "Agency of Anomalies?" Anyway this is an excellent game, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not stop playing This game is well worth the $$$, or stream it on unlimited. It reminds me of the X-Men. Which makes it interesting as far as game play for the characters. The graphics are sharp, and the music goes well w/ the game. game on....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this game! One of the Best! Great game! Not to dark themed. Beautiful calming music. Beautiful scenery and great location changes. Interesting game that keeps you wanting to play it. Puzzles were good and varied. Worth playing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and easy One of the better voice overs and graphics is great. HOG are pretty easy and the puzzles are not hard either. Different HO screens which makes it different. Fast hint button if you need it. Good game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Agency of Anomalies Scores Again! This game had it all for me, a great story, beautifully drawn graphics, terrific voice acting and entertaining gameplay. Despite a wildly inventive plot, this game made complete sense to me. The hidden object scenes contained items appropriate to the story and had clever extras. Inventory items were used in logical places. Puzzles rewarded me with useful tools. Cut scenes revealed clues and enhanced the story. I got lost a few times but with a bit of thinking I was able to recover and move on without a walkthrough. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sequel To The Dingy Though Enjoyable 1st Agency of Anomalies GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES Story: It’s your 2nd case with the Agency of Anomalies, and this time you must save five prodigy children and their caretaker, who disappeared during a fire at Cinderstone Orphanage. Help the disembodied inhabitants of the orphanage use their extraordinary abilities to destroy the plans of the evil doers behind this tragedy. Developer: Orneon Release Date: Mar 2012 Extras: Cut Scene Replays, Special Abilities Following the pattern of the first in this series, you are a paranormal investigator, and you can expect to come across inexplicable and supernatural happenings, individuals whose souls are not at rest, and a psycho scientist somewhere in the mix. You have an Anomalous Activity Detector (Hint) and a Nexus collector for gathering special abilities. The nature of the special abilities you acquire are more imaginative than expected, and while not used often, added to the game’s originality. This is a beautiful game. Which is well done, since it is set in a burnt out orphanage . The cut scenes are great, HOs clear and relevant, and puzzles often startlingly original as well as beautiful. The HOs were easy enough, both list and return items, but the puzzles were much harder than the first of this series. I skipped more than I solved. For me, I would have preferred easier ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If not the CE then definitely buy the SE! For Fishies who did not purchase the CE version of this game, then do not under any circumstance hesitate to get the SE version. Lets start with the storyline: A group of orphans with special abilities are missing and you must learn what happened to them inside the abandoned orphanage. While doing so, you have many puzzles to solve, very good mini-games and what I really loved about this game were the HOS. There were two modes in playing the HOS scenes, one being interactive where you collected the items on the list and the other where you placed items in their correct position. It wasn't as easy as it sound. The game options offered two playing modes and custom cursor. You have a journal as well as a map. The other feature that made the story extra interesting was that you had to collect each child's "special ability" and use them during you search. There are voice-overs and the graphics are top notch. All in all this is a very well designed game which I recommend for those who do not own the CE version. I definitely and positively recommend it. Happy Gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of The Best This is one of the best games I've played in a while. Everything is top-notch. Graphics are really good. Everything runs slickly and smoothly. The story is simple yet interesting. I loved learning about the individual children and having the tasks and games focus on one child at a time. There is a lot of ground to cover, but I didn't get lost. As you finish each child's story, you move on to new scenes and tasks. (You also get a supernatural ability from each child, which you can use as the game progresses.) I skipped a few of the mini-games, but most are fun. Some take a little getting used to, but once you do, they are enjoyable. The Hidden Objects Scenes were mostly traditional, but some were the kind where you place items back into a scene. I love those. My only complaint would be that the ending wasn't great. It didn't tie into the storyline quite enough, for my taste. But that's a minor quibble. Try this for yourself. You will love it!
