Mayhem and hilarity ensue when a scientist travels back in time and gets mixed up with characters from William Shakespeare's play, Hamlet! Guide the man from the future as he embarks on a mind-bending mission to save Hamlet's girlfriend, Ophelia, from the clutches of the evil Claudius. Solve a variety of cunning puzzles and advance from one sidesplitting scene to the next as you defeat bosses and overcome mental obstacles in this fun Adventure game.

Very interesting puzzeler (tried it at the creators site), not so easy though.

I have been buying games off of sites like BF as far back a 2004 and this looks like just about one of the stupidest games ever. What were they thinking when they released this game. It does not belong here it belongs on some kids game site. Not even going to bother downloading this stupid looking game. Come on Big Fish give us some good games for a change.

If I'm not mistaken this is not a "new" game. It's been out for a while. However, I thought it was a RPG. I wish BFG had more of those.

unless you like impossably quick clicking you will NOT like this game. about halfway thru right before a boss battle is a minigame where you have to click on notes till you click on 5..the amount of time to click is way to fast and very unforgiving .if you miss you have to start minigame over. it is not skippable...it was a good game up to that point. if you dont like this type of minigame, b4 you buy go to gz and read the forum,s about this game to see what i mean...

it was actually quite good and challenging up to the minigame i mentioned in my other post.....if they had kept it with puzzles and adventure i would get it....i cant believe they left the stupid minis in there with no skip option.

This game was apparently released in early April on the developer's site. And is still a pre-order on some digital distribution sites. So it is still a fairly new game.

According to one fairly well known UK PC gaming blog, it's fairly interesting title but some of the puzzles don't make sense. They suggest that with a better hint system and more polished puzzles, this would be a fairly nice gem of a game. It's certainly got some nice visuals. It seems to me that this game is not really "casual" material so it'll probably infuriate some people.

I'll give the demo a try, but I expect I too won't like it.

I really like this game! But then, I am partial to adventure games, which it is. Yes, there are some fiendish puzzles, but still a great game.

Hi, Bella Nice to see and hear from you !! I appreciate these kiddie games, I am able to purchase games not just for myself but for my children as well. I love the variety Big Fish offers. My son was zooming right through it and then got bored. There may be some fishies that may like these games, I say to that....Happy Gaming!!

it's a tough little game lol. i have had to look at walkthrough several times, even at the beginning i was playing with everything i could except for the clouds lol. it is not too bad, will make your brain think, i like these cartoony type games and i am starting to get into adventure games so this is right up my alley. i will definitely be buying this game

graphics are good, sounds from they game are exactly what you would think they should be like the birds and so forth.

will give this game 3 1/2 out of 5

This is a cute and fun game with some really good puzzles however it is not for me due to the fast reflex puzzles and I am also deterred from all the reports of the short length of game.

I do like everything else about the game and wish it was all just "complete in your own time" logic puzzles and a bit longer

I think it's cute and fun too, but I've given up - can't do the fishing quickly enough!

Hi everyone, i'm confused. How do i restart a level without coming completely out of the game. When i press esc the game ends and i have to restart the game again. I have not been playing long but it's a chore to have to keep stoping and starting when i realise what i need to do.

Can anyone help

I admire you people who got to the 'minigames'.....at the end of my demo, I had walked that fisherman out so many times, there was a rut in the rug! ha ha !!
I do like games that don't take themselves so seriously, and have a sense of quirky humor like this one. This had tricky little sequences to figure out to push the story along....I ended up using a hint for each one. You can almost see what needs to be done, but , of course, getting things in the right order is difficult.
It has a cute cartoon style, but getting stuck on an action, and having it repeat and repeat and repeat can make you tear your hair out.
Is it difficult, or is it challenging? I'll say challenging for now. I would give it 3 and 1/2 stars for amusing, unique, and the challenging thing.
(You don't want to know how long I kept pushing that green button before I decided there was something else I had to do !!! Duh !!!)

O.k. yes I did like (& bought) the quirky humor of Samorest & I didn't find the fishing mini-game too hard....BUT.....ahhhh! then I got to the guitar mini-game & that's where I stopped patting myself on the back for being so logical
Logic had nothing to do with it..I even got to the last 5 note sequence "*******"
How cruel to make me start all over again...no way, I've wasted too much time on the illogical "note bashing"
Think I need a game of Solitaire to bring down the blood pressure

I found the style of the artwork irritating in the extreme, and having to wait for WAY too long to get a cursor back after doing an action was not helpful. As a bonus, my computer froze when trying to minimize the game. A definite NO for me.
