EXCELLENT!

Every night you’ve been haunted by visions of a man in a red hood, pleading for you to save an innocent soul. You pack your bags for Europe, but soon you’ll find yourself headed for a different destination, stranded aboard a flying ship. In the distance, an ancient castle among the snowy mountains holds the key to releasing a young girl’s spirit, but it also contains an ancient evil sleeping just under its foundations. Follow in the footsteps of the Man in Red and uncover his secrets in Timeless: The Lost Castle, a mysterious Hidden-Object Puzzle Adventure game (BigFish Sales Blurb)

This game has a good Options, a choice of Casual/ Normal/ Expert Difficulty Modes, accurate Controls and easy Navigation, and imaginative, colourful, but slightly blurry Graphics.  The Story is well integrated and keeps you involved and moving forward.

The Hidden Object sites have lists and silhouettes, and you collect several Items per site.  There is also a Combination Box in which to assemble Items, or put different Items together for use – eg a pole and a hook to reach a high Object.

I bought this game in Mac rather than PC – but the FullScreen is not WideScreen in Mac games – a common occurrence.  Game Producers need to realise that most computers use WideScreen these days and iMac lead the technology trend.  This game works well for PC.

I recommend this game for those who like this genre.

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.
