Jud’s Game Rating:

Graphics: *****  Player participation (PP) *****  Satisfaction Factor (SF) ****

Frustration Factor (FF)  *     Fair Play (FP) **** Tedium Factor Nil

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.

About judsartwork

I write reviews of Adventure and Hidden Object games that are Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, Renovation, Travel, Quest and/or Mystery by genre. I have a Masters in Writing (2006) and have been writing novels, both crime and fantasy for many years; plus Haiku, verse, and prose both fictional and literary. I am also an artist of modern, Acrylic, textural and hard edge work, underwater, fantasy, expressionist, and Cosmos paintings. I use mixed media (Acrylic, Watercolour, Pastels) in textural Monoprints, finding surprises to expose within each work. Having both an analytical and creative mind has meant that I have strong powers of observation, and the persistence required to follow computer problems through till I solve them. Of course I am not always successful, but am willing to ask for a little help in order to then unlock the main problem myself. My Troubleshooting Blog, 'Problems and Solutions', was the result of my tenacity.
