Based on part of demo:

I didn't play the full demo because I won't play a game that has a puzzle which cannot be skipped. Although it was easy and I solved it, I won't take the chance of a harder puzzle showing up later that cannot be skipped. I did that once and ended up wasting money on a game I can't finish.

Also, the hint button takes a long time to recharge. I didn't time it because I couldn't tell when it was ready. I just know I was frustrated a lot because I had to wait and wait. The hints didn't help much and I just couldn't seem to get into the game. I rarely had any idea about what to do and simply showing me an area isn't enough, especially when I've already looked at it closely. If the hint button had not taken so long to recharge I might have changed my mind about this game.

The graphics are very nice.

The inventory can be locked.

There is a lag problem which frustrated me.

I usually don't enjoy games about castles and princesses and dragons and spells. That's just me. Others may love this game and I hope they do. We all have different tastes.

Happy gaming!!

If you choose the right level to play, then you can skip a puzzle.

This game features a tiger that flies. A "Flying Tiger." Bwhahahahaha!!! But seriously, I don't much like games with princesses and castles and dragons and spells either, but decided to try this one since there's not much else going on of the SE variety.

The main positive for me was the interesting, clear artwork.

The one HOS I encountered before quitting the demo was well done and not that easy, as two or three of the items were very well hidden, and I was forced to use a couple of hints. Puzzles all were the usual things, but I dislike puzzles and habitually skip them. (I played on the casual level, and it seemed the skip button filled in about 30 or 40 seconds.)

The main negative for me was the story... a rehash of Sleeping Beauty, Briar Rose, The Princess on the Glass Mountain, and every other tale of a princess needing to be rescued. <yawn>

But that said, I think this game is worth a try, especially if you like the genre.

Totally agree now that I've finished playing the game. Every step had 'something missing' and then off to find another itty-bitty clue. Despite the transport map, I felt lost and so bored. Better editing and less back-and-forth would have made it much more interesting. The story was decent ( I don't mind the genre either) as were the graphics. I just couldn't get into the game despite playing it over 2 days. Couldn't wait for it to be over.....

You are all correct! However, please realize that the reason the HINT takes so long is that next time, you will buy the CE!

I must have played the demo and thought this game would be a good one...NOT! Wow, I just went back in to finish playing and what a slow game. Good grief and those interactive cut scenes...I really don't like those. Slow hint....Decided to bag it and not waste the time trying to crawl through this game.

Same old tired storyline, however the colors were nice. I do hope I didn't waste any money on this!
