I'm on the fence with this game. I like the game play but the objects are so cluttered and almost impossible to see. But I like the mini games,widescreen,and the over all idea of the game. You are a contestent on a game show to win trips to travel around the world. I enjoyed playing alot, but I found the objects so hard to find, you have use the hint button alot. I haven't decided if I'm going to get it yet. I want it, because I like the concept, but I'm not sure I would enjoy struggeling so hard to find the objects.

I'll look forward to seeing what other's think of this game.

The game would have been nice, but without an option for the mouse (cursor) arrow it's ano buy for me. How are you supposed to compete with others when yu have a floating mouse cursor (arrow) floating around. Hard to maneuver from object to object. Quit and un-installed after only 4 min. of play.

I liked this game. I think it has a great concept. I made it through an episode and still have 28 mins left on the trial. I also noticed in the options that there is an option for relaxed so if a timed-based game stresses you out, well there you go. The scenes themselves reminded me a lot of the Big City Adventures where anything could be anywhere. I believe there are a total of 7 or 8 locations to play from also. For $2.99, I'm probably going to get it.

I read the reviews in this forum and thought I might pass, but then played the demo and the hour flew by. Mumbo Jumbo is the developer. They also do the Midnight Mysteries series which I like a lot.

I think this game is easily worth today's DD price. I agree the hidden objects are a bit challenging to find, but I like the different concept and this appears to be a fairly long game.

Don't just rely on the reviews. Give the demo a try.

Bought it!

At first I was concerned about playing against the computer (other contestants on the game show) and being timed until I realized that they were having just as hard a time as I was finding a lot of the objects. And this is probably the biggest negative of the game. The graphics tend to be either very well defined or blended and blurry. Even though the game favors your player, a lot of the items were frustrating to find. Fortunately, the hint button refills fairly quickly. Other than that the game concept is great. There is a lot of variety and novelty in the mini games and contests and they are pleasantly challenging. As I played, I tended to think that I would not buy the game because of the frequent difficulties in finding objects, then I would progress on to another stage and change my mind. The final decision? I decided to buy it - the price is right, you can always opt out and come back to it without any plot set backs, and I like it enough to really want to master the game play.

Amazing. I'm always winning at every round from Spain to Germany to any country.

Keep making more money games.

P.S. I like your contestants, mini games, awards, and envelopes with stamps.

What a tedious game! HOGs are cluttered and items are blended into the background. I found myself hitting the Hint button and reading a page or two of my book waiting for it to refill. I'm glad I got this with a PCC. I doubt that I'll ever replay it.
