An Amazing Game! - This may be the BEST hidden object game in the Ap Store. The graphics and animation are stunning. The game play took a little getting used to, but I was soon enjoying every minute of it. Finding the objects can be challenging, but the HINT button is there if you need it. I loved the puzzles...difficult, but logical. Frustration was kept to a minimum. Truly first class entertainment and well worth the money.

That's it? - I bought this and was playing it while I downloaded a movie I rented from iTunes. My wife and I blew through the entire game before the movie was even finished downloading. Way too short. Not good value for the money. I feel cheated.

game was ok - I was impressed with the amount of challenge, but was disappointed that the game ended as soon as she found the portal in the hidden room downstairs……anybody else disappointed by this?

Review by PhredG

Good game with cultural flaws - This game was fun, and it had variations on the hidden objects not seen in other games, such as having to complete one set of hidden objecte before moving on to the next. It gets away a bit from all the hidden objects at the bottom. In fact, the first thing to find is the sets of hidden objects. On the other hand, the puzzles at the end of each hidden object stage were not that challenging. The main reason I am giving it two stars, though, is because it has major “cultural” flaws. The biggest being the ruins in Guatemala, which I assume are based on Tikal. The character in these scenes was a North American Native American, not a Guatemalan/Mayan. Aside from that, many of the artifacts were all mixed up. I know these games are never really that accurate, but having been to Tikal, it bothered me to see artwork resembling the Northwest and other areas outside Guatemala all lumped into these scenes. Not great education for kids. The other scene that bothered me was Africa. This happens so often. Africa is a continent, not a country! All the other scenes were country specific, Japan, Guatemala, Russia (which was already the USSR under Stalin by1928, the setting for this game, by the way), U.S. Could you now have at least picked a country like Tanzania or Kenya? I hope you can be more culturally sensitive in future games like this.

the mystery of the cystal portal - where is the rest of this game. You just don't end a game like this. The game kept me going. The plot was good.But…. there should be more or an upgrade.

This Is My Favorite - I enjoy the seek-and-find type of game, and this is my favorite of all that I've tried. I can see why it won awards, because the designers clearly put a lot of time and thought into the user experience. There are key objects that require you to find regular objects and drag them over. Once those have been found, other items are revealed, or new key objects are created. Each room has several animation affects that add to the appeal. It's a very beautiful game. At the end of each chapter is a puzzle, and I enjoyed all of them. They hit my sweet spot of being just challenging enough to be interesting and not so impossible as to be aggravating. One can also skip those puzzles and continue on with the seek and find parts of the game. I loved it, and will come back to it in a couple of weeks and replay under a different user name. I wish there was a sequel!
