I wrote that I really like this game. I think the clear graphics influenced that, as they are a joy to behold when the gameplay also begins clear after the usual clear opening sequence/movie. I get so tired of the opening being followed by haze.
There is a bit too much going back and forth but it’s still good. There are Hidden Object sites, plus circle bubbles for silhouetted pieces of HOs, then individual items scattered about to collect and use. There are gold coins and portrait pieces to find in each scene – the coins unlock the Extra game and the portrait pieces unlock levels – from memory (I didn’t make a note of that).
There are Casual and Hard modes to choose from in the Options of Main Menu, but the Tutorial is a bit of a pain – intrudes into the game somewhat as you progress. This breaks your focus, which is quite annoying. FF
On the whole a good game, which I recommend.
