Big disappointment!

It's not HOG, nor Adventure - something in between... You are given set of objects, which you have to combine with their "pairs", and use the bonus object to advance in the game. Meanwhile you are given one or two mini funny games...

I need "eternal hints", not 2 hints for each screen - wasted all of them to seek the "combinations".

It's not business - it's strictly personal... Wouldn't buy it even for 2.99$.

Sorry BF, you goofed this time.

I found this one to be rather different than the usual seek and find. Instead you are given objects at the bottom of the screen and are to find in the scene where to use or put them. There are numerous items throughout that you need to pick-up to be used elsewhere. Did not care for the music, but then I generally turn it off anyway. Never thought to use the strategy guide so I don`t know if it is usefull or not. Found 2 extra hints in every scene which came in handy to use for skipping the puzzles I didn`t care to mess with during the one hour demo trial. The scenes where crisp and bright. Didn`t see any dark areas where you`d have to squint to try to see something. Will probably buy this one as it is different and I found fun.

CasualGran wrote:Beautiful sequel to a beautiful game. Graphics are great, music is good, atmosphere is very enjoyable, objects can be found easily and there's no timer Only the cards you use to get more hints can be very hard to discover, because they are blended in so well. But furthermore, a perfect game!



Happy Gaming CasualGran

If you played the first Enlightenus, this gameplay is similar. Unlike the typical hidden object games, you don't search for objects. Instead you put objects back into a scene using the clues of objects already in the scene as a guide. The graphics is beautiful like the first game.

Wonderful graphics , music OK but eventually got muted . I like the puzzles I have come across so far, particularly the sketch ones . You have to use the custom cursor but it did not cause any problems probably because it was a nice basic arrow.

I was not going to buy this CE because I already own Forgotten Riddles: the Mayan Princess but if you like solving riddles and have not already purchased that game I can recommend it. The three things that persuaded me to buy this today are the fact that there is a bonus quest and that there are 8 Achievements to strive for such as collecting different amounts of the hint cards so thank you for those Games, I look forward to attaining them all. The third thing that persuaded me to buy is that I would like to see this developer continuing in business for some years to come.

i really enjoyed having to figure out where to put the items.....much different then just looking for things.........where you put the objects is exactly where they should go....i kicked myself in the b utt a few times when i used a hint and the answer was so simple....for peeps who are tired of games that hold your hand this is the game for you....thinking is a must....but its logical...not impossiable

When I started playing this game, I didn't like it at all yet 40 minutes later I found I was still playing it. It grows on you (not for the CE price, though).

You will not see me buying games for $19.99 anymore. I will also wait until this comes out for $6.99. But it will have to get in line because I'm still waiting for Echos of the Past and then Redemption Cemetery so this one will have to get in line.

This is a good game, like the first Enlightenus. Sort of a reverse hidden object game - where you put the hidden things back into place where they belong. The mini games are fun but not particularly challenging. The hint meter refills slowly, but the E cards you find are for filling it immediately to use right away. So you can have more than 2 hints per scene, just have to wait for the meter to fill.

I like the game, but will be waiting for the regular version to come out before buying. I like CE versions and have a few, but this one just doesn't seem worth the price - to throw in a different game altogether to make the CE? If I wanted the other game I would have bought it, happens to be one I don't care for. It would have made more sense perhaps to have the extra game be the first Enlightenus, would sort of tie in that way. But as a general rule I like CE games and have no problem with the price, this one just doesn't quite make it.

I loved the last game, so I bought it before I tried it. If it s a little harder, at least we know the concept from the first game. It is good sence and good marketing to put a game on once in a while for 19.99. Remeber how much a new one is in the store-- and not a collector's edition. Think too, Big Fish allows everyone to have games for 6.99, plus they have many deals. The economy is bad, and they have to make a killing sometime to off set the great deals. So, buck up everyone, and stop your crying and think.

I like this game and the humor... Liked the first one too...But, I'm not going to buy this one...= too expensive for a game of this kind. I don't want the riddle game either...so..I'll wait..
I'm very sad that big fish changed it's way of working with all games of 6.99...and that you have to wait several weeks for the "not" collector's edition...because...most of the time when that edition comes out, or I don't remember why I liked the game at the first place and also because I most of the time buy a game just after I played the demo and I don't feel like buying that game anymore after a long time !

I don't agree with you... I can give 45 dollars for a great adventure game, but not 19.99 dollars for a game that takes just a few hours to play... !!!

Beautiful graphics, nice story and pleasant music. Well done voice overs. The style of play does not appear to be very popular with some fishies but I think it's a nice change from the usual HOGS and IHOGS. Mini games do not consist of spot the diffs, or putting endless electrical wires or plumbing parts together but are games unique to the storyline. I think they are quite imaginative. No comments here regarding SE vs CE. or visa versa. We all have our own decisions to make. Very nice game glad I purchased it.

I am with you, although I haven't tried this game yet, but I want to get the other 2 first. Kind of getting tired of all of the CE's. I don't have 19.99 to pay for one game let alone 2. I liked it better when they came out with a CE game about once a month and all the other games were 6.99. Then I could get 3 of the other games I liked by the time the CE came out for 6.99.
