After 15 mins of play, I'm buying! What an intriguing, interesting, clever game. Excellent graphics and enough mix of hidden objects and challenges to keep it interesting.

Not a fan of this one. I'm a sucker for pretty things and I was disappointed by the tiles. I guess you either like these games or you don't.

I am really enjoying this game so much I bought it. I like the different scenarios and the mini games are nicely mixed. To win the item it 'blue' can be quite challenging, some of which I had to skip. The graphics are fantastic as well.

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the bottle potion thing - what's the point?

I too was not a fan of this game. I found the objects too hard to find and the story line boring. It's a pity as the focus of the game (i.e. the story and teachings) could have been a lot better done.

This is a good game for those wanting something a little different. I usually buy IHOGs and so this game is nice and glittery for something different. Not sure whether I will buy it though, will depend on whether the options increase or add to the game play.

For me, this game was a bit of a disappoinment. I was really looking forward to it from the pictue of the game and thought it was going to be just as good. I found the music annoying and the objects hard to find. If a game doesn't grip me immediately, I will stop as there are soooo many good games out there.

No buy for me - found the music and the game play annoying.

I did not like this game at all (guess you can't please everyone). I like IHOGS, but found the music annoying and the objects really hard to find. Stopped after 10 mins of play.

I liked this game. not sure whether I will purchase it or not. It's not a difficult game, there seems to be plenty to do. The only irritating thing is the voiceovers, especially Alice's, but at least you can skip the dialogue which makes it more acceptable.

I couldn't stand this game! I found it irritating beyond belief. The music was annoying, the objects too easy...definitely not a game for me.

Bugger! Had I known it was only that search area, I would never have used a credit! Why oh why, didn't I come in here first?

I haven't had any trouble with the game, because I can't download the demo! I first get a warning about the certificate, ignore that message and then get another error message saying the file has a virus!

Tried this game, but lost interest after 15 mins of playing. I think they could have had the bonus things a bit more exciting. Still the best solitary game would have to be Fairy Solitare.

I think the littlies will enjoy this game. Definitely not this 'big' kid.

The voice was annoying, the objects often difficult to locate, the music so-so. However, I'm not 5 years old, so I'm not sure if they will think it's good.

Not a fan of this one; didn't like the panning process (although can understand why offered by the developers as something different), to me it just annoyed me. The objects were a bit on the small side and a little hard to see.
Just tried this game and although cute with a humours storyline, I will not be buying it. After 15 mins of play it was 'doing my head in'. For those who want something a little different, this game is for you.

Boy am I glad BF has this review section...I wouldn't know an old game if it hit me in the eye! (Unless of course it was pacman or anything from the eighties.)

After being burnt on a few games that didn't allow a demo, I'm reluctant to purchase a game especially when they're aren't raving reviews.

Thanks for your opinions fishes, saved this little starfish from buying the wrong game!
Sorry, found this game really boring. No challenge and the same thing over and over. No buy for me.

I must be in the minority with this game. I tried it, stopped it, tried it again for a bit longer and uninstalled it. I found a lot of the objects really hard to find and in the end would just click everywhere to get through. I thought the voiceover was pretty funny and the music unobtrusive...but not a game for me.

Into 20 mins of the demo and am enjoying it. A good mix of puzzles, some which require you to think. A little 'scary' for me with the ghostly images and things that come out of the mirrors...but still has me intrigued. I won't spend $20 on it, but will wait for it to be released at the normal price.
