The game might be fine and fun to play, but I do not like the negative comments that it makes anytime you click on anything...not my best effort when all I did was click on a person laying on the ground...this kind of thing totally ruins the game for me, and this developer is well known for doing this...please stop!!! No need to make people feel stupid.

Someone, or something, is robbing Nobles in Rome and taking their identities. The Detective is called out of retirement to pursue the thief and solve the mystery.

This game has a beautiful soundtrack, with voilin and paino music in the background, excellent narration and voice overs.

The visuals are beautiful: clean, crisp, clear and very well illustrated.There are collectibles throughout including pieces of a plate and mosaic pieces, all to be used in the storyline.

Hidden objects scenes are the list type; some of them interactive in the sense that you have to create each object before it is considered found: for example, sculpting a dragon from a piece of wood, building a totem, and painting a mask. In others you are asked to find a certain number of a particular object.

Mini puzzles were fun and some were very challenging. They are a lot different than the usual mini puzzles in hidden object games.

Tools to help you include a notebook, the hint button, a jewel box to create items from other items you have found, a crystal cube to gather light to assist you in using the jewel box to make blueprints, and my personal favorite, a little animal helper, in this case a small ermine I named "Minty".

This SE has a lot of bang for the buck. It will keep you very busy as you try to catch the thief.
