I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say somebody meets their demise (in a very non-gruesome way) and can’t “check in” because it’s been a heavy day so her soul has to pass from body to body while waiting - and not necessarily human bodies. And so it goes . . . ! The music - well, it could have been better, sounded like something you would hear in a Pink Panther movie only not as good. But the graphics were very good, clear and bright, no dark areas, well-defined, and not hard to see. There are no special options other than “How to Play” which gives you a hint as to how to accomplish the first task.

It provides you with a map, and when there is nothing to do, you need to go to the map to see where there is a green dot and go to that location. No sneakers being worn out because the map transports you from place to place, which I didn’t mind at all. If you get stuck and use a hint, it will tell you to look somewhere else if there’s something to do somewhere else. Inventory items appear in circles on the right side of the screen as you use them (okay, it’s a bit linear but I didn’t mind). And a retractable “Mission” scroll which tells you what you need to accomplish. Okay, okay, there were a few grammar goofs here and there but nothing major that would drive anybody crazy, at least I don’t think so. You do have to hop around from location to location to collect things to complete a task which was pretty easy to figure out.

The hidden object scenes were bright, clear, and the objects were not hard to see. Some of them were small, but they were in plain sight and when I used a hint, and it showed me where it was, d’oh. There it was right in front of me. Now, for the hints, and to explain how it works - it’s a bit different than what most are used to – you start with one - but don’t panic - when you are in a scene, the hint recharges to add another one, and then recharges again to add yet another one, up to three hints. If you use all of them, it will still keep recharging until you have one, and then start recharging again and so on. So you are never without hints, and when you are, it recharges at one minute. There is a mis-click penalty where the cursor turns into a red circle and spins around for a few seconds. The list of items don’t always appear all at once, and once you are done, it doesn’t tell you anything so you have to go to the map to check where you need to go next.

I only ran into a couple of mini-puzzles, nothing unusual and relatively easy. But fit the game very well. There is a recharge of two minutes to skip them. Chances are there is going to be a walk-through, although it doesn’t indicate on the game home page that there is one. They might not do it because it isn’t an inventory and sneaker-heavy game.

Okay, it is a iHog LITE. It’s not terribly complicated, it’s not a CE, it’s not an ERS game, but is exactly what it is - a very nice iHog Lite with a fun story, good graphics, interesting tasks to accomplish, and in my humble opinion just right for those who find Phantom, Phantasmat, Maestro, MCF and the like a bit too much to handle. And I thought it was just the cutest story and game and being a sucker for these kinds of games that don’t turn my hair gray, I think I will buy it.
