Sorry to say, I too was disappointed. Many of the objects are so small they can barely be seen. I quit the demo after 20 minutes and put drops in my eyes. This looked like a good one, but I won't be buying.

Because of this and all the comments about "Bugs" in the game, I will probably have to pass on this one....Too Bad...

I agree with many of the others. The objects were too small to find without hints, and there were way too many to find. Like some of the others, I didn't even get through the first section before my trial time was up. I do think I would like the game, tho, but not sure I would buy it before some improvements were made.

So far I've played through half this demo. All in all I like the game for many of the same reasons others have stated: great graphics, nice music, interesting storyline, unlimited hints. But I also don't like it because as others have mentioned some of the objects are way too small and fuzzy. This is very surprising to me because the graphics are very crisp and clear but the objects are so small that they are practically invisible. For example, I had to find a rabbit in the first scene -- even after using two hints (which draws a circle around the approximate spot) I still had to blindly click and finally, "found" it. Still not quite sure what it looked like because I never actually saw it

So I'm still on the fence with this one. Wish as someone else mentioned that there was a magnifer or that the objects were just a bit larger. It would have been a nearly perfect game. Oh well guess you can't have everything...

Pinky559 for Franklin's workshop. You have to have the robe showing on the screen. Then you take the magnifying glass and notice the initials and that there is a spot cut out on the sleeve. If you have the magnifying glass go over those two spots, then you will get the evidence card.

I hope this helps you as I too am stuck... only in Druscalla's room and the evidence card on the pamphlet. It's frustrating when you can't go any farther in the game.

Undecided on this one. I absolutely love the music but the objects are too hard to find (for me). Although it was a pretty restful game, nothing too exciting. I'll keep an eye out for the posts and see what the other fishes are saying.

I have "investigated" successfully the first 3 suspects, twice. I quit assuming all is well, but when I come back, none of my progress has been saved.
I really don't want to go through all of this again.
HELP!!!

If you have an anti-virus program on your computer, you will have trouble starting the game. Go through My computer, program files, launch game...
If you still cannot play, close your anti-virus program.

Diane

OBJECTS WAY TOO SMALL.

RATE: 3.5 OUT OF 5

WOULD NOT RECOMMENT FOR MORE MATURE PLAYERS SUCH AS MYSELF!

When I try to play the trial, I get this error:

"Exception exceptions.AttributeError: "'Moonstone' object has no attribute 'data_folder'" in <bound method Moonstone.__del__ of <moonstone.Moonstone object at 0x015D4C30>> ignored"

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but got the same error again. It doesn't surprise me that others are saying that it's buggy and freezes, considering how I can't even get the trial started.

I've learned to check the forums for issues before buying a game!

Not necessarily. My AV program was running and I was able to start the game no problem.

I had an error box that kept coming up at the start of the game and the game automatically shut down, I contacted Tech services who were great (thanks Dennis) and I updated my graphics card online and ever since it has been ok!

Hope that may help!

Took me an age to find the petal too - ask for a hint again and it is very hard to see but it is small deep red colour in middle of hint ring. Hope you find it!

Okay, what's up with the luadulum bottle?!!! I've dusted and dusted and dusted for fingerprints. Two appear on the bottle but nothing else happens and it doesn't complete the suspect. I also find one on the table but then it goes back to the full scene. Is there a glitch???

When I played the trial version, I new I would buy the game and a big reason, other than the fact that I love
hidden object games, is because I love the beautiful classical music! You don't find that too often. I'm a music lover of most kinds of music, except for jazz and hard rock. The game is fun and not too hard. However, as others have mentioned, some of the objects are really small and difficult to find, especially for the older folks, like me. My eyesight isn't as good as it once was but it didn't stop me from wanting the game. I would give the game 4 stars.

I purchased the game, but wish that I hadn't. Once you finish the game, you are done with it, unless you want to play the same game again and pretend you don't know the answer to the "who done it".

I'm almost finished this game - on the last "investigation" - I've played it through, but not without difficulties - several times throughout, the game would freeze-up and i would have to do the ctrl/alt/delete and shut down thru "task manager" and then re-start the game. Also, found that a lot of the objects to find were really, really teeny/tiny and pretty much impossible to find without a hint (at least for those of us who have eye-sight issues! The storyline itself is quite interesting, but I was not overly thrilled with this game - somewhat of a disappointment because of the problems with it. Pretty much the only reason I'm carrying on with it is because I paid for it !!

According to me, the object is too small and there are too many objects in one screen, also some of them are not visible at all even when using hint, I mean something like 'a black rose" in a black corner..
But the screen is good and the storyline too. Therefore it's not the 'great' game, but you can play it to spend some time...
