The first in the series was enjoyable. The second much the same as the first, making it less appealing, By the third game it becomes a bit tedious. Nothing original. Puzzles and hidden object were very mainstream and average.
Think i will give it a miss.

Domini Games are really repetitive. I totally agree w/ crypsynight!
On one hand I need a new game, on the other don't wanna be bored to death! I'm gonna wait on this one! Don"t feel like wasting my money!!!!!!
I'm curious? I beta tested some really good games, were the heck are they!

Did not last the entire demo. This is a repeat of the other games. At first I thought I was playing the same one I did before. Once again you are a healer with a healing kit on the side having to mix potions and having to get them in the exact correct order (you can skip) or you have to do it over and over again....no thank you. You examine someone with the lens...sound familiar? You have a rusty axe to oil....a hacksaw to fix...oiling something else with a lemon...a door to fix with a log and putting a pin in the hinges... starting a fire with a flint and some flammable liquid...and too many other mundane tasks of putting things together, finding this and that to put here and there. You've done it thousands of times.

Indicates in the Extras that there are 17 puzzles....17 mini games (both re playable). Well, let me tell you, there are going to be many more puzzles than that, that they have thrown in as extras. I did 2 hos (nothing spectacular) and there was a puzzle at every turn. I lost count of them and gave up. Got tired of using a skip. It's not worth it.

The Extras is an attractive area. You collect 15 eggs and in your Collectibles room, you click on the egg to crack it and an animal appears (so cute). You collect 15 medallions that describe the characters....ooohhhh. You collect 76 coins to buy things in your Magic Laboratory...awesome and fun. These collectibles are designated in the lower right hand corner of your screen by the inventory bar and glows when there is one in that area to collect. The numbers of how many you have collected and how many there are to get will appear on the upper left side as you find them.

Some of the achievements are....what can I say...out of this world. You'll know what I mean when you get there.

Sorry, but I will be taking a pass on this one. If I want to play a duplicate game, I will one of the others I already have.

Many glitches in this game, slow, sticky game play, skips took too long to activate. Nothing new, pretty boring, same old annoying puzzles that were passe a year ago. Would not recommend.

I have trialed the first two in this series and bought them on sale. I haven't got around to playing them yet.
After I trialed this one I wanted to keep going. So I will end up buying it on sale. This maker is puzzle heavy but I didn't see that you couldn't skip if you wanted to. I like the story and the graphics of this maker so I'll put up with too many puzzles. I play for the hops but I'll try some puzzles.

I couldn't even make it through the demo. Played the other versions of this game and this one is just like those. Nothing new... same old stuff I've played before. Nothing grabbed me so it's a no buy for me. Sorry.

Based on demo only: I really love it! The mini-games are creative and imaginative with clear instructions, there is an option to play Match-3 instead of the HOS, the HOS are varied in format, the plot (storyline) is good, the dialogue is not excessive and gives us the plot as it unfolds, the music is good and the graphics are beautiful. The interactive map has an option to show where collectibles are still not found. Many mini-games have a difficulty option of "Easy" or "Hard". This game gives players lots of options and flexibility.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire demo and will be purchasing. Thank you devs for a truly enjoyable game!

Hello friends! Welcome to another addition to this series. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story line to others who do a much better job than I. Graphics are fairly clear and nice, except when going in and out of close ups and cut scenes, then a bit blurry, as usual. Game play was very nice and I had not glitches or problems during the demo. Colors are very clear and bright, without being blinding. Animation is very well done, except for a little during the opening scene, when the mouth didn't quite match the dialog. Music was quite soothing and very nice background sound. Voices are well done and are age and character appropriate. There wasn't a tremendous amount of character interaction, but enough. Yes, we still heal people infected with the crystal disease, and have the diagnosis lens. Personally, I'd prefer that we just find the written ingredients and forget the lens. I do like using the healer kit, though. I think I'm finally getting the hang of it, as I managed to only have to place items twice to get it correct. Sound FX are nice when we had them. A little more would have really perked up this game.

HOPs are varied and very well done, with silhouettes, interactive lists, highlighted words, and place items in the scene. The scenes are fairly clear and uncluttered and items are not difficult to find. You can switch to a match 3 if you prefer. Puzzles were fairly simple, and you can choose between easy and hard. This addition was not overrun with HOPs or puzzles, but had enough to break the monotony of straight game play. As usual, this game has my favorite map. Areas are clearly identified and you can choose to have it tell you if you have missed a collectible or not. The hint system is very helpful, but it doesn't have the usual transport popup. When you need to transport, the map opens and it shows you where the next area is open. There is a lot of back-tracking, so this is a big time saver. Strategy guide is the usual and easy to follow.

We have a lot of varied collectibles to find in this addition. We need to find 15 medallions, which are not all that easy to find as you think; 76 coins to buy items for our medical laboratory, which are very easy to miss, and 15 various figurines, which are fairly large but easy to overlook. Love it when we have lots of collectibles to find.

I really like how this series picks up where the last one left off. Yes, same story, but still interesting and fun. I didn't see any "inter dimensional" travel, so hopefully we don't have the bright lights we had in the last one. This game is not exceptionally challenging, but I found it interesting enough to want to play it out, and I really like the collectibles. Even at that, I gave it a 4.25 on my rate scale. I think all levels of players will find this one a nice game. Yes, I am adding it to my collection.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews.
