I usually love games by Mad Head games, but this one just isn't all that exciting. I will say though, after the demo, there was a twist to the plot that I didn't see coming, so I'll give it kudos on that feature. I bought the CE version of this game a while back, because I prefer collectibles, morphs and bonus chapter that it offers, but if you're not into those things, this SE version is fine. The collectible Signs are way to easy to spot, in my opinion, but the Morphs within the HOP's are a different story. Although I prefer Morph's to be in each scene, I will say, Mad Head does a fantastic job blending the morphs, and making the items morph just slow enough to make it challenging. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either is right for you:

The Nightcrawlers are attacking! Oh, I guess that's supposed to be a Night Caller, you know, the ladies of the evening, nope that's not it either. It's a giant creature that comes calling at night, whose energy comes from symbols??? Where do the symbols come from, they didn't appear until the nightcrawler appeared? Are you as confused as I am? It all boils down to one thing, it's Grandpa's fault and I've gotta fix it! I've got to get rid of these Nightcrawlers before it rains, cause ya know what happens when it rains! (I should write these stories)

I love Mad Head games, but all their stories lately seem to be about the same thing, and they all center around symbols. The Collector's edition versions, all have the same Spiral Symbols to collect, and the same HOP Morphs. I do however love the abundance of puzzles offered, which aren't necessarily challenging, but they are fun.

The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Interactive List finds, but there was an Interactive Progressive Silhouetted Shape one that had a bunch of puzzles, and was really quite fun. After the demo, there was one I really loved where you had to find symbols in a labyrinth made up of symbols. In the CE version, each of the HOP's have a Morphing Object to find, some of which are cleverly done.

The Mini Games are really entertaining, in my opinion. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo:
1) Use all wires to connect lights by rotating connectors.
2) Drag symbols to align them with the stationary symbols.
3) Navigate through the maze using directional arrows and using items you find to progress through obstacles.
4) Rotate grate sections to allow an open path to retrieve the saw. Because there's always something of great importance in the sewer.
5) Adjust lock sections to create an open bath to the button, clicking on one section may affect others, because they always do.
6) Swap tiles to complete the picture, click on the button to change the available tile sets.
7) Match the symbols to the shape of the buttons, click until desire shape appears.
8) Swap tiles to assemble the picture. Doesn't anybody have a normal picture to enjoy?
9) Click sections in the correct order.
10) Slide puzzle sections to complete the image, because no picture seems to be normal.
11) Swap the painting to match the outlines on the wall. Finally normal pictures, just not in normal spots!
12) Press arrows to move spheres to their matching colored spots, no picture involved.
13) Swap and rotate triangle puzzle pieces to......you get the picture.
14) Find and replace items on the pages of the book, it's sort of like a pop-up only different.

I think i could have really enjoyed this game had it not been for the constant puzzle and mini games and ho scenes CONSTANTLY around every corner. Played the whole demo and it was back to back. It's really hard to immerse yourself in the story when i am constantly being hounded, and yes that's how it felt, to play a puzzle/ mini game. There's a point where it's just too much and i have noticed this problem with this dev in other games as well. Almost to a point where i am not even going to bother to demo their games. This game is a no buy for me.

I used a free coupon from purchasing CEs. There're things I liked about this game and things I didn't like. I just finished it and it does have too many mini-games. Enough to choke on. I did like the story line and game play. I don't like all these puzzles in a Hops game. There are more than double the puzzles to hops.
