Based on Demo: 2nd verse same as 1st. Another rehashed story premise with an evil demon wanting to take over the world. And this deserves 5 STARS? I think not.

Not wonderful, fun, enchanting or challenging.

Why do the graphics have the same old, same old, cartoonish look without a hint of realism? Then there are the one dimensional characters without movement or lip synch.

Usual music sound track we've heard over & over again.

HOGS are interactive with a few silhouettes. You can opt for puzzles which I find tedious/boring. Jump map/diary available but I did not use either one. There are also colored pots to acquire & they did not seem to hard to find, at least in the demo.

This is just ANOTHER game lacking in originality. Sorry devs your rabbit has not earned their carrots for this one.

I had a negative hunch about this one just from reading the precis. Thanks, nontechiegrannie, for your review. I'll pass.

Well, the pros for this game were:
Amazing terrific annimations and graphics...clear and crisp and colorful
HOS were interesting and easy so it didn't bog down the game
Mini games/puzzles were easy but tedious in some games...
Hint and skip refreshed quickly
Transporter map was excellent and helpful
Game play aspects were fun, different and entertaining.

Cons:
Voice overs were slow and just plain awful
Had to turn the music down
Story was a bit childish ala Alice in Wonderland with that foolish rabbit that really had no place in the story
Too many cut scenes and dialog...I skipped almost all except for the ending scene which closes the story...if you can handle the slooooooow speaking dialog.
Never used the journal, can't figure out why they put those in.

I figure when I stop and start a game several times its because it just wasn't a gripper...which this one wasn't...fun game to play in some respects, but was just "there"....hard to put my finger on. I give this game a 3 out of 5 because despite the dumb rabbit and horrible voice-overs and way too much dialog...it was a fun game-play...You decide for yourself....game seemed to be a good length...I don't think I could have taken much more.

Well, this game was definitely different but enjoyable. Good color, graphics and characters in a make-believe world. Need games like this to escape from the dreariness of everyday.

I just completed this little game that has been hibernating in my GM for awhile and it was just what I wanted while we are having icy, snowy, cold weather

I actually enjoyed the simplicity of the storyline, gameplay and graphics (music included) and I believe the developers put a lot into it because of little touches

Sometimes I need a game that I can just play without too much thinking and heavy concentration.

The game played with no trouble and I got a few chuckles out of it so I'm giving it a out of possible 5

Played on Desktop PC running Win 7/64

This is one of my favorite games by this developer. It pulled me in and kept me entertained, much like the first Grim Facade. I didn't think it was too easy at all; in fact it was just right for me. It had a lot of areas and you were very often carrying a lot of inventory items, so the jump map showing areas of interest was absolutely essential. Puzzles ranged from easy to way too hard, so I played some and skipped some.

I definitely recommend this game!
