No review thread up yet so I'll write something here.

You know I can tell I'm enjoying a game when I don't want to pause play enough to come buy it. Lovely graphics, suuuuper pleasing voice acting (granted I'm an unabashed Anglophile ), pleasant music and at least for the 30 minutes I've played great gameplay encompassing both standard listed hidden object and return items to a scene. Add to that some standard mini-games (so far concentration and jigsaw) and some neat little inventory adventure puzzlers and I'm there, fishies!

Granted, it's a junk pile style, which I'm iffy on, but this ones not toooo bad, at least the objectslook as if they are in the scene, not just painted on. I'm hoping the minis evolve a little too, but as long as there's not too much repetition I'm ok with the classics. Oops, forgot to check if they were skippable. Hints are quickly refillable and no penalty for mis-clicks.

All you folks who freak out over tarot and pentagrams, this is not for you. I love it!

Anyway, 1/2 hour in an loving it, worth me

I just finished the 6th chapter the learned man and was booted out. I couldn't quit playing. The graphics on this one are wonderful. The puzzles are fairly easy, but they integrate into the storyline. It appears there are 22? chapters to the game So I'll have at least 3 more hours of fun with it. The hidden object you have to place back in the scenes as well as the ones you have to find are not so tiny you have to strain your eyes. The hint system replenishes quickly. I used it once to see how fast it would replenish, but haven't really had to use it so far. Plus, I can see playing this game again, and again. It's quite relaxing, which gives it a replay value for me. I'm really enjoying the story and the characters voices even the males are quite pleasant and fit with the characters. I'd give it an A+ so far.

Uninstalled after 8 minutes. Voice very annoying, graphics too fuzzy, finding objects too easy and the one minigame I did was ridiculously easy. Disappointing! And this is the first time I've felt differently from you poodlebear! Glad you are enjoying it!

I loved this almost at once! I like the graphics, very pretty. Graphics are always a selling point with me. I have even bought a game or two I didn't like because of the pretty artwork - LOL!

The game play, although not difficult so far, is good. I like the different ways to play. First, return items to a monchrome scene which takes on color as you replace the items. Next, find a list of items, standard HOG play. I also had to move the curser around the scene to find "secret" items which might be combined to use on other items in the scene.

Poodle referred to this as a junkpile game and so it may be as there are many items in each scene. But, the items belong there. Some items, however, may seem to be hovering in space or in some way in an unnatural position. For the most part though, items are sensible to the scene and in sensible places and have not just been dumped from above to land in any place or position.

I just could not resist beautiful, colorful graphics and a variety of game play. I have only played one mini because i did not play very long before quitting to buy. The mini was a very simple jigsaw with few pieces.

This one gets 4 out of 5 stars ( because no game is perfect and I may change my mind later)!

I am thoroughly enjoying this one too. And I thank you, BF...I actually went to bed early yesterday and got up at 3 this morning and, voila, a new hog, and I have time to play it before going to back to bed at my regular time since I have to work tonight. This game is a total surprise, as I had done a search yesterday and couldn't find it anywhere. I love the whimsical quality, the graphics are lovely, the voices fit, and it is just different enough to be interesting.. Oh and everything Poodlebear said too, lol.

I guess I like it because I totally lost track of time and went through the demo time!! Finding out it has 22 chapters was amazing to me!! I have to wait for the developers to fix another game and I don't particularly like the repetitive match 3 so I was Hungry for a good ****. HERE it is!!! I Love everything about it!!
I still ahve not figured out how to put the thunbs so let me say 5 up!!!!!!

I have played for about 15 minutes. I do love the graphics but I wish all the scenes were in color. I is rather easy and the only mini game so far was an easy puzzle. Does anyone know how long it takes to play? I dont like to purchase a game to finish in under 1 hour after demo completed. I would recommend it to others for a non stressful game play

I ran into a couple of problems, but I'm not sure if it is the game or my computer. In the Emperor's room when i went to look for the lever for the statues mouth, I clicked on the window and a big chunk of the screen turned white. It happened in a couple of other places too. Anyone have a suggestion?

I THINK I will love this game, but can't get it to load properly. Seems I get through one scene, then the page goes white . Uninstall, reinstall, same thing. Now, after the 4th time installing it, the pointer won't pick up the objects????

Love everything else, just wish I could play !

Lovely little game! Beautiful graphics, generous hints. Nice story. Not a difficult game, but that is a nice change for me. This game is so easy on the eyes, you cannot help but to play it. Very worthy of my game credit. I have to give a great big Thumbs Up

Haven't finished the game yet, but I love it. Just finished making the leash for the lion from the grass "pipes". I found it very easy once I decided to start from the end pipe and work backward to the beginning pipe. It went really easy. Can't wait to do more but sleep is calling. Catch up with you all tomorrow. By the way, Happy Holidays to all gamers!
