This could have been interesting but the game itself is too tedious and uncooperative. First the game is not responsive to touch and when you want to interact with an object it makes you bounce in and out until it finally does what you want. The graphics are poor and very blurry. I can't make out some objects at all and just hit around until something reacts. The puzzles are tedious and uses the repeat the pattern type puzzle too many times. The music is repetitive and never changes from the inane cheery tune, even when the characters are in danger. This reminds me of games I played a number of years ago and appears dated and trite. Not something I would pay for again.
Not a fan
I've only played through the 'free' portion of the game, but I'm not going to purchase it because,
the gameplay is awkward. Unlike most of the other big fish games, 'poking around' is pretty stiff and in order to use things you have to click on them in the inventory and the screen will then show you were you can possibly use it.
Along that line, the overall tone of the game seems pretty juvenile to me. Obviously it's just an iPhone game, so I'm not expecting the next Myst or Dreamfall or anything, but within the dirt minute we're searching for a 'time traveling amulet' accompanied by the rather odd and lame graphics of still drawn characters who occasionally blink.
Although some big fish games appear really well thought out (queen of spades or redemption cemetery or the Dana knightstone series), this game just overalled seemed subpar so I won't be making a purchase.
The game was okay. Not the best and definitely not the worse I have played. But it was so short I didn't have time to rally get involved in it before it was over.
I got it for . 99 cent so it was well worth he money but I wouldn't spend anymore than that because of the length.
Have to admit, though, the use of time travel in solving the puzzles was a bit fresh after so many plain find and next room types.
SO, to sum up, if you get it for .99 cents go for it. If not, save that buck and add it to a few more and get a longer game.
