Very fun game - Having a blast so far. It may not be a good game for those that really like difficult challenges, but I find the puzzles just challenging enough to keep things fun. There is a bit of freedom in doing some tasks in a different order, but most of the time, things are pretty linear. Really enjoy the simple animation, and definitely like the voiceovers. Great job to the developers on this really fun game!

Great game that'll keep you entertained for hours!!! - This different take on the Wizard of Oz game is so fun and interesting! It is a very fun detective game that has a storyline to keep you interested. The game is easy for adults an teens, but may be a bit challenging for those under 13, maybe not. Point is that it's great for anyone, it's addicting, & hopefully there will be a sequel as the story leaves much room for the story to continue. Please, please, please make another Petra in the Emerald City game! Highly recommend! You will not want your money back!
Dingo Derby! - I loved this game when I played it on a PC (downloaded from Pogo). I still love it on my Mac. I hope there are more to come also! It's creative and original (finally) and quite intriguing.
So FUN!! Needs a sequel - This is just a way fun story game, with a spin on the classic storybooks. There is so much room for more stories with Petra and William and University; I was soo sad that I couldn't explore the University more...and I wanted to go to the northern and eastern parts of the kingdom, as well as explore more of the other parts of the west and south....dang. But it was so much fun and just a good storyline. PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER ONE! :)
Many hours of great gameplay - A wonderful spin on an old story. Many hours of gameplay...great graphics, easy UI to navigate, interesting characters and scenarios, fun puzzles, and just the right level of difficulty (i.e. engages your brain without being annoying, but isn't so easy it becomes tedious). Love that there are readily available hints if you need them - you don't have to earn them, and they're there if you're stumped. It's really great that there's no way to mess up or get stuck. WELL worth the money, would love to see a sequel or expansion pack!
Interesting take on Oz - You play Petra, a female detective, who lives in a Oz where magic is heavily regulated who takes a case that turns out to be far more than it first appears. The animation helps lighten the tone of the game which at times could be best described as noir with corruption and criminal activity seemingly everywhere. If the game has any flaws it is the relience on "knoweldge pills" to get the player up to speed on things the *character* should already know and the occational must do action x in place y so the character can ask or do something the player figured out a while ago. Overall for the cost a good little point and click game that bringes back the best of that genre for modern players.
