Shocker.

I managed to play this for 3 minutes, and that was an effort. Deleted already. Absolutely shocker of a game. Everything is wrong with it.

Hi there Nomatt,
The screenshots didn't look too exciting in light of the recent offerings.
Any idea who the developer is?
Cheers

Didn't look impressive at all here either. Not even going to bother with a DL.

Dev is Most Wanted Entertainment....
This game must come under the category of 'least wanted'! Lasted 2 minutes. Game a weird shape on my screen, looked very dated, menus hard to see.
Compared with the latest crop of beautiful adventure ihogs and frogs this game is seriously bad.

I took one look at the screenshots, and could already tell it was a no buy.

Hi there,
Thanks for the info Belamba, I will check them out.
Maybe someone needs to go beyond the "entry point" of cartoons etc to see whether this game is better than so far reported.
Anyone out there up to the challenge?
Cheers.

The opening scenes and first activity are very different from farther on in the game.

The game is not about what you might think after seeing the opening scenes. It is a missing family member again.

I did play about 30min before having to quit because I was about to have a migraine from the eye strain. The art has a water color effect which doesn't work well for me with the hidden objects.

Hi there mcurty,
I am glad at least someone has reported back as to the further merits for this game.
I haven't tried it yet myself, but sometimes games need to be persisted with beyond the opening scenes or initial impressions to really get a feel for them.
Cheers

Most Wanted Entertainment is a Hungarian developer.

Hmmm. Sounds perfectly bleak! Maybe I should give this one a try. Perhaps it would make me like yesterday's TGT. I seemed to be in a major minority (is that an oxymoron?) thinking that the Hidden Glass Lane game was clunky to play and kind of lame-ish.

At least Ukrainian developers like ERS & Vogat know how to do good graphics!

The items to find are mostly in the dark and really tiny. I deleted this boring game after ten minutes. Can't believe that I lasted such long...

I also deleted this game, after only a few minutes. The items are very obscure and difficult to find. I also found the graphics to be a bit "fuzzy", rather than sharp with good contrast. Thank goodness I tried before I bought it...

A 'No' for me!

IHOG = Interactive Hidden Object Game (has an inventory). FROG = FR(actured) or FR(agmented) (Hidden) Object Game (an IHOG where the usable item has to be found and assembled).

All FROGs are IHOGs but not all IHOGs are FROGs.

This was a bit confusing, but I think I just hit enter. There was a short lag and then it went to the menu screen.
