TGT: The Broken Clues

[Post New]by lordkalvan on Feb 1, 09 12:15 AM
The Broken Clues: Hidden Object. TIMER. And a pretty short one too. First scene and the time is 5 minutes, and by the way you lose 3 seconds for every misclick too.

So I just deleted the game without even finishing the first scene. The background music was annoying too, IMO.

Thanks for that Lord - just downloading it - yuk to timer - it looks a bit classic HO with spot the difference and not overly inspiring!

If somebody else gives it a great review I might download it again and give it a shot. I'm currently REALLY grumpy about timers because I can't get past level 7-4 of Tibet Quest due to not enough time.

I will try the Demo. Two things put me off this game though. The description said, "Objects are uniquely hidden as ghost-like items". Is that a stopper or what? I have no desire to glue my nose to the screen looking for "ghost-like items". Also, I see that it has "Spot-the-Differences" and I absolutely dislike those. This game is not looking good for me.

I will try the Demo because it is a mystery and I love mysteries and it is an HO which I also enjoy. Am off to try it.


OK, I tried it. I could not even finish the first room and I tried it 3 times. The 5 min. Timer is one of the shortest in an HO. The items range in size from small to tiny. Some items are "ghost-like" and others are just too small to tell what they are. No Relaxed Mode and the 3 sec. penalty for wrong clicks are stoppers for me. I can't believe this thing got past QA. No credits either. I wanted to know who came up with this turkey. I wouldn't have put my name on it either Sorry but that is how I feel.

This one took me all of 2 minutes to decide on, in the negative, and that was with reading the extremely awkward translation at the opening. First scene - 5 minute Timer - 3 seconds off *any* misclick? As catsholidayhome said above from the looks of the screen shots and the few seconds I spent in game this looks like nothing special beyond the use of very clear photos. No inventory or anything so straight up HO with mini-games (don't know if more than Spot the DIff, that's the screen shot) which is fine but not with that timer. Nope, thanks, 12+ active games on my desktop I actually *want* to play. I have nooo trouble sticking to my No Relaxed No Sale Boycott on this one.

So sorry fishies, no full 60 minute demo in depth Poodlereview for The Broken Clues, but initial impression is a

If you haven't got excellent eye-sight - Forget it! Played about 2 minutes and then deleted. Timer too short. Turned off the annoying music.

Still waiting for a good HO game to come. Haven't enjoyed any since RTR.

I have to agree, this game sucked on ice. I wanted to like it but, I just can't. You can't see the items. And everytime you click on the wrong item it takes 3 seconds, off of you 5 whole minutes. It could have been a good game, but they blew it.

Who checks these games???? I think they should be replaced This is without doubt the worst HO game I've come across, and I've seen some stinkers

The translation alone is pitiful - for example, when you first click on the clue button, it tells you that you only get three clues per level, so makes worth of it. I'm not kidding

Then there's the total lack of time, the practically invisible hidden objects, the losing of 3 seconds when you get something wrong, which is very easy to do because of said invisibility of objects.

I gave this game ten minutes, and I'd like to know who I can sue to get those ten minutes back
