I just demoed this game and it is awful. The music got on my last nerve. The objects are fuzzy. It game me a headache trying to find the required objects. You were correct in your review. I will NOT be buying this game.

I'm kinda dissapointed in a few games recently, I'm still have been spoiled by RTR .. lol ..
I liked Treasure seekers and a few others recently, but even those were TOO SHORT ..

Bring us out a Good Long Interesting game ....... Is that too much to ask for ????

Does anyone know of any games coming out soon, I'm hoping there's a sequel too Mushroom Age I loved that game .....

Would an **** lover like plants vs zombies?

The last couple of ****'s have been a huge disappointment but - having said that - the standard of this type of game has been climbing fast and it must be hard for small developers to keep up. Although I wish they would

let me know and I'll maybe give it a try!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the reviews. After playing that beta for Save Our Spirit, I really don't want to get into another one that has lousy graphics. Thanks for the heads up - I won't bother to DL.

I tried it for a few minutes yesterday. It's kind of campy, like a grade-B movie, and there was a time when I think I might have enjoyed this game, from that standpoint anyway, just for the novelty of it all. But many hidden object games later, I have gotten quite a bit more discriminating and I am not so easily amused. I don't think it's the worst one I have seen either; I can think of others that I liked less.

I should have known better........Lost Secrets of the Burmuda Triangle, was awful too......but did not put two and two together that both are created by the same company.
I will admit that I bought the thing......somebody slap me.......haven't finished it yet cause it's just so boring.

I agree with the rest of the fish in the sea....this game is awful. It's made cheaply. You can't see the objects and have to click on them twice to remove them from the list. The music made me so crazy I quit the game and deleted it.

Wow....That had to the longest hour waiting for the demo to just come to an end....I guess I was hoping somewhere along the line that it would get better. This game was just awful. I would remove the world premiere thing just because the game isn't worth telling the world about, unless its to tell them its BAD, Bad, Bad. Don't waste an hour of your time or your money, trust me.

I thought this was hilarious! I didn't have any problems seeimg the items, some of them were hidden very cleverly -- but there were always fewer items in the list than it actually wanted. I'd have apparently finished the list, but when I went back to the map screen it'd say there were 1 or 2 or 3 items still to find. Luckily, there wasn't any penalty for extra clicks, so I'd go around clicking on various things, seeimg whether they a)removed something from the list (really, "the stone?" On a picture of a rocky beach?)(it ended up being some sort of gemstone/colored agate) or b)just randomly shrank/expanded/popped out of sight.

So yeah, deleted.

I've played bad games before -- random or absent storylines (this one was pretty weak), various technical errors (the only one I ran into was some slow animations, but that could have been my computer), poor translation into english (yep) -- but this one took Lousy to a new level.

Oh yeah, the 'find the difference' screens with no indication of how many differences you were looking for. That too.

And the unexplained hint coins -- although in context, that was trivial.

The solitaire game was decent, though.
