Pure hidden objects, but not wonderful
I'm always looking for a pure HO game (as opposed to "adventure" games that just have you clicking everywhere in the environment, with HO scenes only as mini-games), but it still needs a decent story and good gameplay. For starters, the writing and grammar of this nonsensical messy mashup of every sci-if movie you've seen is pretty appalling. Mostly they cribbed visuals straight out of the Aliens movies with ridiculous time-travel-jumble-of-meaningless-science words thrown in for good measure. The writing is so bad you have to assume it's a terrible translation of something that didn't make sense even in its original language. I could still get past that, but gameplay isn't great either. The same items appear in EVERY level (if you've played this game, how many times have you clicked on that moth?) There are generic terms in the list - say, 'bottle', but there will be 5 bottles in the room and you can only click each until you get the right one. Ugh. Lastly, the sound effect that accompanies each find is truly one of the most annoying sounds ever generated. Compared to other HO games, $.99 would have better reflected the quality, but if you just want a pure HO, like the sci-fi atmosphere, and can get past the asinine writing, you may enjoy it.
If you're a fan of the Kate West Vanishing Files for the DS, you will love this game.
Excellent atmosphere; very balanced difficulty level. However, the 'found object' sound seems very cartoonish in comparison to the soundtrack, and can be quite jarring. Also, after completing a level, instructions on how to receive more stars are somewhat vague. I like that the game doesn't hold your hand the whole way through, but sometimes it feels like it leaves you hanging after level completion. Perhaps the first time after finishing a level, the screen could just show what the symbols stand for and what you can do to receive higher scores.
Flawed but fun
The background graphics are beautiful along with the music (although it repeats itself without end) and the mechanics of a searching game are there. However, there are a few flaws that drew me out of the experience. First, the sound effect that plays when a correct item is found is truly ridiculous, it sounds like something out of a cartoon rather than a mysterious game. Secondly, the story was quite difficult to understand simply because it was translated into English incorrectly at some points. Thirdly, a few of the items the user must find are named in a very archaic and sometimes mysterious way, for example, a coffee mill refers to a pepper grinder, etc. overall, the app is a good way to spend time while working out your brain.
