This is a hidden object game and not a card game?...

Is this a game for children? The card games are over when you find the magic cards and you have to use a brush for cleaning the card and a key for open a card. It was very boring not a buy for me.

I found the game boring! That's all I can say.

First, can some one help me?

I´m having a déja-vu feeling of this one.
I know I´ve seen these screens before (for example in the museum and at the home) for about 5 years ago (maybe even longer ) in a good old fashion hog (long before the HOPAs) but I can´t remember which?

Then I would like to add that I found it very tedious to always have to pick up the duster for every card even if you had several of them to dust.

It´s a no buy for me.

Same as yesterday's game, dead boring. If I want to play solitaire I can play the correct version on my own computer. The graphics were good, but what a lot of trouble to go to just to play cards.

I had one HOS the whole hour. Laying out money for this is just not going to happen, but for the dedicated few. Not one of those.

Sorry devs, standards are too high these days. Not the way to turn a profit.

I also found it very boring. I'd rather skip the card games and get on with the mystery but maybe if that were an option there would be little left to do (?). The gimmicks of a duster, spray can and key appear in the Demo. No doubt there are more to come as there is still plenty of room in the inventory. Those items were more of an annoyance than fun. There is more than one game but you do not receive instructions as to which you are playing. It doesn't take long to discover which one. There were only 2 games in the Demo. I quit with 6 min. remaining. I would have quit after the first card game but I do like the graphics and I kept hoping that there would be more HOS.

If you like pretty graphics and simple card games, this will suit you. It may be more enjoyable if you watch TV while you play. This is a No Buy for me and I have uninstalled it. I'd rather play Klondike.

This may have worked for a diversion from the genre I usually play until it got to the dusting of the cards. Please!! That is just irritating. Then they bring on the spray can and key to get cards? No Thanks.

The card games are fun and the hidden object scenes are very easy.

The first thing I noticed is that the opening scenes is a room stolen from another game. I can't tell you which game at the moment but I know I played a hidden object scene in there before.

Not for me. To many little irritations

I didn't mind the dusting and spraying, as long it didn't go over the top, and unfortunately it does after a while.

What I didn't like, and the reason I am not buying this game, are the graphics, which looked years old. And everything, except the cards, was static.

A very basic game, which is a shame, because I am always on the look-out for more Solitaire games that play the "1 higher - 1 lower" hands like Fairway, Avalon Legends, and Best in Show, etc.

ETA: Bratzgram... speaking about stolen rooms. When I got to the part where I was standing at the corner of a street, and looked up an apartment building, I could have sworn I saw that same scene in a HOG that was quite old.

I, too, quickly became annoyed with the duster and spray can. The card games are so easy -- it's obvious the deck is stacked. (Play tripeaks/golf with real cards and you'll quickly discover how hard it is to win.) And only playing until you get to the magic cards makes it even less challenging.

Also, there's no assistance on what to do next if you brush past the dialog. I got stuck in one room with no card game, no HOS, an item sparkles but clicking it does nothing. Too bad I ignored what the lady said - I'm not interested enough to restart from the beginning.

Some graphics seemed to come from Art Mogul????

Put it at $2.99 and I might consider for the kids.

I lasted 25 minutes before deleting the game. I have enough cleaning to do at home already without having to clean my games! What on earth were they thinking with this one? *slaps head*

I have to agree enough with the card cleaning.Boring is the understatement,I wonder what hole they dredged this game out of, or should I say what century. No buy for me.

Too too funny! I'm with you, QEIII. So I guess I'll just creep out quietly with you.

ETA: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm going to buy this game!

If you are prone to any motion sickness..beware. The screen shot moves back and forth..yuck. Is maybe good as a daily deal, but it's a big maybe.

I thought the same thing about the scenes Anki. I think there was a female museum curator, had short dark hair and glasses, and she had you finding all these things for her before she would help with your quest. Was it one of the Cassandra/Nostradamus games?

25 minutes of the demo for this game was enough for me. Picking up the duster and the bug spray became too tedious, and didn't find the story line interesting.

Dear QEIII and Jinocchio ~~ third creeper here! When having to dust, spray, unlock, or whatever, I got a small feeling of "oh, boy, I wonder what card I'm gonna get" and eagerly did the task. I am buying this! Shhhhh?! LOL

Thanks fellow creepers.


The reason I wrote that was because literally every poster was saying how they didn't like the game and I thought I might be shouted down for liking it. I felt I was the lone voice in the wilderness. But I'm sooo pleased other fishies liked it too!!!
Don't feel so lonely now!!
