My opinions.
Irritating music and sounds with no volume control. Either on ot off
For my old eyes, graphics are almost undistiguishable
Timer loses dollar amounts and goes down to zero, but does not end game. Not too bad]
All in all no buy for me

This is definitely characteristic of an OLDER game and just may give you one big headache from eye strain, as well as other factors. It is a straight hog...lists at the top of the page. Although the colors in some of the scenes are brightly colored, there is shadiness in some and it is very difficult to see items, especially in the bluish ones. Graphics could have been more defined.

There is a zoom feature you can use with the wheel of your mouse (you are going to need it)...and you can scroll. There were scenes in this demo that were repeated and some of the items were the same items collected previously. I assume that scenes will be repeated throughout the game, also.

There is no volume control for sound or music, only an off and on. You access that feature in the upper left hand corner when in a scene. There is no timer, which is a plus. You sometimes need all the time you can get to find items, rather than having the stress of a timer. Hints refill on their own, but I noticed after some time, mine did not and only remained at 3, maybe because of all the clicking I was doing, which deducts from your score if you are into that. They certainly could have been more generous with the hints.

This isn't the best game, but not the worst. It is different and I will use a pcc on it.

Two new games to demo today and both I thought I'd try. Very happy to see a game that looked 'different'.

Well, I really wanted to like this game.
I couldn't even finish the demo which for me is most unusual as I feel that every game deserves completing the demo before writing it off. ( Also, I have found with other games I've been on the fence about that further into the hour the games just kept on getting better. )

It has potential for HO lovers but the graphics were far too lacking any dimension and
the game didn't 'flow' . The objects were hard to find given the lack of color and a blurred (to me) playing board.

There is a story but even that didn't grab me. Also, the idea of a pure HO game was a nice change. The Caves part I thought would be interesting also.
This is only my opinion. I hope others enjoy it!

As I said above, this game really had potential.

ETA cathybobcat gave a detailed and true take on the game play so my input wasn't needed in that area.
