Hey everyone!

I've been really sick and today, it took me, literally, ALL DAY, to write this review. Because I kept falling asleep. Usually, I edit it, shorten it and put it on this thread but I just don't have the energy today.

I've just submitted my detailed review so it should be posted later today sometime. Please feel free to go to the game page and check it out. Thank you so much to those who take the time to read my reviews. It means a lot to me.

Here's an extremely short (which is unlike me), version.

I loved the game. Purchased it when it came out as a CE. HAD to. There was SOMETHING SPECIAL in the opening scene that just GRABBED me and I HAD to have .............. well, the game too. 5

Now, you ARE intrigued, huh? Bad me.

Happy Gaming!!

I HATE being sick!

Too bad that it looks to be a great beginning but there is something wrong in the game as everything moves at a snail's pace - things to pick up, places to go, hints. Too aggravating.

Never mind.. I bought the game.. If any one is interested in knowing, I'd say that the demo is 1/3-1/4 of the game, but there are some pretty neat riddles in the main game..

The game slows down and catches I am reposing because I have the same problem.
Story looks good but slowing and catching makes it not a pleasure to paly

Totally agree after finishing the game. It's as if Elephant Games didn't pay enough attention to game play as they did to graphics and animation which are superb to stupendous. These Devs. are masters of creating atmosphere suitable to the theme (eerie, dark and dreary for this one) which makes me a loyal fan (and why I bought this game).

It's not a bad game; just slow and a bit predictable making it quite boring. Towards the end, I just wanted it to be over......a bad sign! The HOGs, puzzles and graphics are superb. The story was interesting enough but lost its way as the game progressed.

Another excellent, full of adventure and fun game from this developer. I always play on casual so that is what this review is on. The game stands very well alone as an SE with excellent graphics and voice-overs. Can be a bit scary at times for those who don't like those kind of games.

Both the HINT and SKIP recharge very quickly which makes the game move along well. HOS are different and fun as well as most of the puzzles which you can skip if you just want to get on with the story (I"m not much of a puzzle lover). The transporter map is great and the HINT will transport too.

Interesting storyline and even the little dog wasn't annoying like some of the animal "companions" in other games. A good length, not too long or too short. A definate 5 out of 5 for me.

Firstly, I had no issues with slowness or "catching" at as a couple of others have mentioned. The game ran perfectly for me.

I have loved little Elf the dog and the other Mystery Trackers games, but I didn't love this one for a couple of reasons: (1) the excessive number of puzzles compared to HOS (fortunately, the skips fill very quickly), and (2) the story progressed too slowly. I got bored and stopped the demo after about 40 minutes.

I also got tired of having to replace the batteries in the energy detector after every use.

I thoroughly enjoyed the game. Did not get anything else done in house, Mini-games were fun. Had to skip some as I was impatient and wanted to get on with game. I like all the Mystery Trackers and will look forward to the next one.
