Review by BWB7

Slow down and think first. - Great game that I enjoy very much. Going through the game I needed to slow down my actions and think about what I was doing first. Remembering what I saw where in the game also helped to I could go back if I needed to and collect extra pieces for use later in the game. Overall I had a great adventure learning how to play the game. Not everything was obvious to me. I was not sure where to go or why. Little by little I was able to figure the correct path to take. I’m going back for some more adventures.

Review by ME A MOC

Too Short - This game was fun and not so hard that you get frustrated. However, my son and I finished it in about two hours so, to me it’s not worth the $6.99. The graphics are good and the mini games are challenging, yet fun. Also the hints were very helpful the couple of times we got stuck. Overall, although it was enjoyable, I was disappointed at how quickly it was over.

Review by beccaboo827

Another good one, but short - I’ve played quite a few of these games by G5 and Artifex Mundi and this was another good one. It was the shortest of all the ones I’ve played, it took me a little over 2 hours (including the bonus) on casual mode. The graphics were great, as always, and the mouths fit pretty well to the words being said (some occasional moments were what’s being spoken doesn’t match the written words). The story line is similar to the others, but it’s the puzzles, mini games, and problem solving that I enjoy more anyways. Some of the puzzles were too easy compared to how I’ve seen them in other games, but I was on casual. I always like that there are extras in the game, as you play you unlock achievements and eventually the short bonus game. I wish it was a little bit longer, I think the carnival could be expanded greatly to make for a longer game. Overall, I enjoyed playing it. Is this one worth the $6.99? Only if you’ve played all the others and are desperate to keep playing these types of games.

Review by focusthelens

Great plot if only it would stop crashing - I would have rated this game 5 stars if only it didn’t keep crashing every few scenes. That alone was frustrating, but when I’d come back and have to redo the last few steps, that became even more of an irritation. I got to the point where I would go out to the main menu just so it would save and then back in.

Awesome Game - This is an amazing game with amazing graphics! i loved it so much when i tried it i couldnt get enough so i ended up buying it and completed it in the same day. This game is amazing they really should make a sequel. maybe allowing the Evil One to get out and you have to put it back in the mirror world!

Review by VIsaacsJr

PURE AWESOME - The game is great! I love mysteries and action. More games need to be like this to where it challenges mentally. The way each step and the solving of each clue took you to the next step to accomplishing the next task and completing an area. I love the storyline. By using the map and having the monkey help and assist was a good aspect of interaction. I can't wait for more!
