Found a numerous amount of side games----- not difficult. The hidden objects not too hard to find either. Got as far as the museum where I was to go to the basement to look for pages and was exited from game telling me to buy it to see more. Didn`t play enough of it to decide if I should buy or not. Will wait for more reviews first.

liked it, but too short. had just finished the riddles in chapter 5 when I was booted out with 13 minutes left in trial.

actually you are now on the 12th level (there are 46 levels in this game), so for first 47 minutes, you have passed only 20% of the whole game
there is still a few hours of thrilling gameplay!
don't look to the chapter's number, the chapters are very different in terms of content

I like it! I bought it with 12 minutes left on the demo. It's interesting enough to keep me entertained and that is a plus with me lately.

Well, may be I am afraid of 2012 (end of the world by Nostradamus), but I liked the game (bought it too)... .

Very good graphics, bright screens, easy to find objects, and a lot of interactions with the non-playable objects (move objects back and forth, open/close doors, etc).

New elements: many objects are given as riddles (like Azada). Quite difficult, if your first language isn't English - had to use a lot of hints; and you are asked to cook your dishes according to recipes...

As I skip almost all the puzzles, I leave the review of them to more expert players.

Pleasant and relaxing game.

I finished chapter 4 during free hour. Sorry, but halfway thru in one hour? I did not skip story or minigames or tutorial. This seems like a very short game. no buy for me.

Okay..first of all, this is a very fun game. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem but it is running sooo slooowww on my computer. I have a dual core processor with all the latest Java everything and it is still just so slow. I made sure everything else was closed, rebooted, and still the same. Also, after you play the demo and buy, you lose all your progress (well I did anyway), the whole game has to redownload. Other than these issues, it is a very good game. Happy gaming fishies.

I loved this game!! Lots of fun, lots of puzzles. Only strange thing was that the pointer and the objects in interactive parts were far apart, not centered on the pointer. This might be due to having the widescreen. Any one else notice this?
It was a bit difficult to deal with in the flashlit scene and the magic glass scene especially.

Yes that happens to me too and I don't remember it happening with the beta.
It is quite annoying but it does not seem to effect the gameplay.
Mine is a widescreen though I get the 2 black bars down the side.

Not to sure if the your games are running slow or is that just the way the game runs ? The game is ok ..not head over heels about it...reminds me a lot like dream sleuth in a way...The puzzles were interesting , Just seems like that type of game crawls for some reason or another...Don't think it was a tech issue..BUT ...we've got lots of snow people , & all I've got is TIME .......sooooo salute oh ! its a no buy..for me

Govegril, I found that in options, if you uncheck the box for widescreen support it works fine!!

))) I have participated in beta testing program, and I know that the end of 4th chapter is only 20% of the whole game, but not half.
