RE: wyebank. Same here. Well my cat fell asleep on my lap that is. I think it is a nice easy HOG for beginners or kids. HOS are clear and there are several kinds of groups of items to find. Only played 9 min so don't know if there is anything else to do later.

I have played this game before and forgot that I did. It is definitely boring and some of the hidden objects are very obscure. My old eyes were being strained too much. I don't recommend this game.

Just tossing my 3 coins in the fountain, er, pond-I enjoyed this game-It's cute, progressing levels are not as easy as the first ones, but I found it relaxing-Would I always want this low level of challenge? No, I love to use my 'wits' to figure out clues-But I play for fun and this game was just that, fun-I had just entered the house when time ran out so don't know what might lurk inside-However, I explored the whole yard and only found hogs so I suspect this is a straight hog game-I will buy this when we have a sale-Try for yourself-You just might like it, too!!!

Well what can I say...Here is an hour I'll never get back. Boring is the word, and what was the reason for all the running around? No buy for me. Would like to see more seasonal games.

I must be on a retro game kick lately, I enjoyed this one. You have to use the magnifying glass to really see the items but it isn't much of a hardship since you can scan the entire area in about four swipes. The artwork is kind of old timey 3D but the story itself is very good. Lots of reading but the dialog and notebooks are very well written and actually quite intriguing.

Unfortunately the hint doesn't work outside of the hidden object scenes but the dog does tell you if you're finished in that area. I should have taken notes to remind myself where I have to return because now I'm not certain where I have to go and I'm not thrilled about having to revisit every area.

Still, it's a fun game if you have the patience for it.

Is this comparable to MCF or Dark Parables or any those types of games? No. Is it a fun, EASY, stressless way to spend a bit of time? Yes. This is a good game for beginners and those who don't really want to strain the ol' brain. And sometimes that's all thats needed. Graphics are okay, some objects PITA to find but did like the magnifier option. I leave sound off so was not as annoyed by dog as others. This game very much resembled HOGs as they were a few years ago. Story is okay but made me a bit sad as it reminded me of the cute old house down the street from me that the owner demolished and I am sure it was full of wonderful old things. Dog telling me I was done in certain areas helpful (take note here game developers - some of us hate all that running back and forth to areas we finished.)
Other than that, it was allright. Do I want to pay full price for this? Not much....Overall rating - 6.

I revise my review - DOWNWARD. Very frustrating game. Found myself running in circles way too often and some items were impossible to find (oh, hmmm could that be the tablet pieces? Insert eye roll here...) I had to give up on this game - so annoying. My new review - 4 and I'm being nice.
