Wow, the Fish is giving us an HO feeding frenzy lately! I'll await your review Edna, I wanted to stuff a sock in that game show host's mouth the last time.

They were supposedly making improvements to this version so I'll give it a whirl. Boy BF is spoiling us HO addicts these days.

Feel the same way about the music, going to go into options and turn it down. But the voice is not as bad as the last guy.

I got a chance to get the LOST ISLAND HAWAIIAN EXP.

Still have not made up my mind on this one yet. Objects are kind of hard to find, but maybe because I am half asleep will check later with a clear head happy gaming everyone

Are you talking about Hawaiian Explorer: Lost Island? I played the demo to that one long ago. I hated it. I think it got bad reviews also.

Okay, I tried it and this is my take:

It was cute. The scenes were certainly colorful, maybe a little too colorful. It made some things a bit hard to see, and it was starting to give me eye strain. I also agree with the poster who mentioned some of the scenes were fuzzy. I, too, got that impression, although I'm tired so it could have been that, too.

I got a nice varitey of mini-games, so that's good. Although the ABC letter one seemed to come up more often for me. But there's lots of skip chips to be found, so that's a plus.

The host wasn't quite as obnoxious as last time, although he does only seem to have about 3 different sayings, which I could see getting irritating, but I guess that's why there's sound control on my speakers.

I do like the addition of the prize shop. My goal-if I buy this game-is to amass enough tickets to buy those giant stuffed animals. I'm still on the fence about buying it. Like the first one, I could see this one being a "grind" to finish, but if taken in small doses it could be a fun game. The trial is definitely worth a look.

And that is the officially sillyfeet review.

Yes I am talking about the Hawaiian Explorer Lost Island. I have played the 1 hour demo and quite like it .... I like the mini-games ! I cannot remember the first one so I cannot compare. Oh well if another great HO comes, I might change my mind ..

Downloading this game as I type. I have little expectation out of it since I didn't care for the first one. From waht I read this seuel isn't much better than first. But an HO is an HO and us addicts gotta have our fix even if it's just the hour trial.

Well... I did play the full demo. Not as annoying as the first one (I did buy the first, got about half-way and quit it, never went back) but still, not great. The scenes are very grainy and some make for very difficult searches. I said out-loud to myself, "I can't even tell what this junk is supposed to be!" in one very dark/fuzzy area (bumper cars I think it was) The variety of the searches is fun and the ability to skip if you have a chip (I hate silhouettes particularly) is good. The prize part always annoys me, like it did in the first, and I usually just skip that bit. I did turn in some tickets for a purple egg man and I think it's a mermaid...

Pass for now, but might buy it in some time of hidden object famine.

I agree with most of the sentiments posted here. This once is much less annoying than the first. I thougt it ok, but will not be buying. I have no desire to spend time shopping for garbage with my skee-ball tickets

I played the hour of this, I like some of the new mini games and also liked that it was a *lot* more colorful than the first incarnation. I would probably eventually buy this one to play randomly when goofing off. I like the addition of the choosing your prizes and opportunities to get more tickets to break up the monotony.

I thought it was a bit repetitive, but that's ok for a random game to kill time. I pretty much turned the music off and turned the voice and sound effects way down, and just listened to my own playlist on, so it was a fairly pleasant activity.

Sometimes I have had problems with pop up blockers, or in Vista I have to allow a program to continue?

I bought the first one and played it all the way through. This one is a lot better.

For $6.99, I am buying it. Call me a dork, but there are some cheesy games I can't resist. At least it's not a snooze feast like Moonlight Sonatas turned out to be. I never finished that game.

I love the "fling the frog onto the lily pad" game.
