I have played the game plus the bonus and never tire of the game.
I found this game to be irritating and repetitive. Very primitive graphics. Weak storyline accompanied by lame ending. It is divertive, but rather inane. Not sure why some reviewers seemed so delighted in the puzzles and mystery because the few puzzles presented were merely a chore and a bore to solve. All in all, if you just want to kill some minutes with hidden pictures the Popcap games are more pleasantly diverting.
One of the best games of this genre!
Our family spent many hours puzzling and laughing our way through the well designed scenes. A good value.
Yes, it's a hidden object game and just like others there's a great deal of running back and forth between the same areas. However, unlike others this story is actually compelling. The puzzles are challenging but not so much so that the game gets irritating. Also, the art work is very well done and I like the stylized charachters. It is a little pricey, yes, but I'd much rather spend money for good content and game play. Took about eight hours to finish the first round without playing the bonuc content. Well done Alawar!
Best game played since switching to Mac!!!
Now that's what I'm talking about!!! This is what I've been yearning for since leaving the PC world last summer, and therefore its sweeping array of adventure hidden object/puzzle games!!!Gorgeous graphics and a cohesive story line are the icing on a great cake! This game includes puzzles I actually had to think about (I play in expert mode), and sometimes walk away from because I got stuck. Additonally, it isn't one set of monotonous hidden object screens, and therefore increases the challenge and enjoyment. Great ending, and a bonus game that tells the origins of the story. Highly recommend!Only complaint for those who plan to play, at the beginning of the game I had to resort once to the Strategy Guide because my solution to a puzzle wasn't working. Turns out I had the correct answer, but I didn't have my cursor exactly over the place I was supposed to use my tool. Having the cursor change is not good enough in this game ;)
