Echoes of the Past

After playing the first hidden object scene, which I thought was somewhat challenging, I am disappointed in how game continues. All of the text is too small and ornate. A different, cleaner font might help clarify lettering, however it is still too tiny to be practically read. The letters run together and any enlargement of this game in other features is not enough for iPhone players. In my opinion, the coloring of graphics is too grainy, bland. I'm sure you were aiming for a subtle overall cast for the scenes but the graphics just look ambiguous and not well done. The 1st hidden object scene was somewhat hazy and distorted but objects still could be recognized somewhat and after that the visual quality went way down. There were also not enough help or hint features, and again the hint button and the notebook were too small to be easily accessed. All of the above made this game physically frustrating to play. I became stuck early on in the chapel scene locations and have no idea how to proceed so I will delete the game from my phone.

Regret buying

Numerous glitches, got the oops an error occurred please reload message at the tail end when I wanted to watch the ending. Then numerous times in the main game it took forever to pick up items dropped because they were so close the to back arrow; and I couldn't finish the bonus game because the one item I needed could not be picked up. Every time I tried it either didn't respond or it sent me back a scene because it was so close to the back arrow! I wound up giving up and deleting it. Also, in the hidden object scenes the writing was so ornate you sometimes did not know what you were supposed to be looking for. Incredibly frustrating and a waste of my time and money.

Ok but problems

Can't complete the bonus chapter bc I can't pick up the red ball that drops after putting the arm on the mannequin . It keeps on taking me back a scene. I tried like 50 million times. Now I can't unlock the other extras cuz I can't finish it.

It takes a long time to load
Strategy guide is not integrated and doesnt keep track of where you are in the game.
Not as good as other echoes of the past games
