Hey Tj1147--I posted this in the Review thread also: There are 47 pages in the Integrated SG--each of those pages contains lots of information. Some SGs have some pretty sparse pages, but not this one. Good gaming!

cme550, the simplest way to describe this is Adventure Lite (like the Drawn series).

No, they weren't before. I believe (?) BFG was the developer on the earlier games. This is the first ERS-developed Azada game.

I did not intend to even TRY this game, until I read some reviews about it being a HOG Adventure game. The first Azada, was never finished, by me or my husband, as it was just impossible, frustrating and for us, unpleasant.

The second I passed because of the first one and figured this one would be the same as the first. Don't know really as I never used the trial and didn't read the forums.

The present one I am going to give a chance but if it gets too hard, I'm done. LOL. This old brain and eyes are just not up to advanced puzzles and confusing plot. If I wanted to go to work, I'd get a job and get paid for being worn out! :-)

Wish me luck........

Thank you, Elldee! I am just loving this game and I'm sure it will be a "buy" when my daughter signs on and sees it! She loves the Azada games and plays on the most difficult level.

Hey Nwr--Piggy-backing on the post from DarkDisciple--There's surely no such thing as being "stupid" here in the forums, and there's no "out of order" charge unless the "judge" (Mod) says so! OK?

I really agree with DarkDisciple--it's good that ERS "inherited" this series--better graphics and better overall production values. Good gaming!

Very different from the previous Azada games, but I ran out the demo hour before I knew it. I, for one, am pretty tired of the standard hidden object scenes and really enjoy this type of game where you find stuff then have to figure out what to do with it. I played on the hardest setting, and the game doesn't give you any clues as to what you need for a particular scene - very challenging. I will be buying this CE even though I have mostly gotten away from CE's since they don't really offer enough extra gameplay to make the extra cost worthwhile.

GOOD LUCK Lady Gem...Maybe since it's been awhile since you tried the original AZADA you might be a lot better at it now if you go try it again, older and wiser, you know.

Not played this new Azada yet, owing to back pain which makes sitting for too long excruciating Once I can sit for an hour or more, I'm looking forward to this game! Surprised to read it's from ERS, as I thought BFG made the original Azada, which I loved. The second one wasn't quite as good IMHO.

As for it being shown as a HOPA, if there are objects to find then technically it is part hidden object game. Whilst the majority of games advertised as HOPA's use the standard pattern i.e. object search, find an item, use it somewhere, object search etc. etc., it doesn't mean they must all be presented in this way (but I can understand why some would be unhappy that this game is listed under that category).

Enough sitting in one place, have to stand up now or I'll be sorry. Happy gaming

Ditto on what you said. I would like to add that I like the single hidden objects here and there as opposed to lots of junk piles. This is much more fun IMO.

First off, let me say I'm not the nitpicking type....but.

I just watched the video and at the moment when the guy pulls off the mask and opens the trap door for our hero/heroine to fall through the caption reads:

It was a rouse.

Did they mean to say ruse, b/c to my uncertain knowledge rouse is a verb and means to awaken, while ruse is subterfuge?

Probably just a typo. Still....

This is not a game with HOS (hidden object scenes), but it plays like a HOG - just without the HOS.

I am so glad I bought this game. At first I was sceptical about all the puzzles, but so far I have only skipped one, which didn't seem to work for me (making all drops the same colour). Otherwise, all the other puzzles were easy enough even for me to do.

This is a really wonderful game - lovely graphics, lovely scenery, and we even get to see characters who talk to us - just like we are used to in the all the ERS HOGs.

I bought the CE, not so much for the bonus game, but because this will be the first time I might need to refer to the SG (strategy guide) when I am doing the puzzles.

Just finished feeding the chimeras, and will give the game a rest. I hate rushing through a game, especially if I love it as much as I do this one (I am the same with books), and will continue later on).

I have not finished downloading the trial yet but have read the reviews and comments about this game. I see that many people are upset about the fact that this game is called a Hidden Object game. If it is like the other Azada games, it is not a Hidden Object game. Every Adventure game I have ever played has hidden objects. You need to find them to accomplish tasks in the game. Even Myst has hidden objects but I would never consider that to be a Hidden Object game. It is strictly an Adventure game.

My download has finished now so I'm off to play the game.

The original Azadas had objects you had to find...all adventure games have objects you have to find in order to solve puzzles open doors, crates or otherwise advance in the game. But they are not by any stretch of the imagination thought of as hidden object games.

There is a different expectation when a game's description includes the phrase "Hidden Object" game, whether other words like 'Adventure' or 'Puzzle' are used in the description or not. BFG and ERS know this and they know the high popularity of hidden object games.

How many iHOG fans would have downloaded the trial if the description only read 'Puzzle Adventure' game?

Valdy - that's why I LOVE Boomzap games - lots of puzzles, no junkpiles, beautiful art, and not creepy.

dvdiva - I, too, can't stand junkpiles. Reminds me of my parents' house before we hired a company to clean it out

So, does anyone have an idea of how long the bonus play is? That will be the deciding factor for me for CE vs SE. I don't want any of the other stuff that comes with the CE.

I've only found this, thus far:

Update *** Lady_Cav advises that the bonus is around 30 minutes.
