The underlying story is a pretty good one and accounts for all the time swapping needed. But, initially I thought this game was going to be played out for the most part in either the future or the past---oh, no not in this game. Here you are in and out of 5 separate different time eras. For me it all got terribly confusing. My advice is use the "strategy help" to make sure you don't miss picking up something---don't depend on the help button! Because if you miss getting an item good luck trying to go back to find it.
I liked the option of being able to play a mini game to advance if you're not in the mood for hidden objects. But, the mini games are not explained well. You're pretty much left figuring it out on your own or waiting for the count clock to skip the whole thing.
Overall, I liked the challenge---hence the rating. But, I did have to restart the game a couple of times.
Huge waste of my time
This is my first Big Fish game.
I am not impressed, and I am a fan of mystery games, wandering through rooms to solve clues.
What I dislike about this game:
1. Tedious hidden object mini-games that have nothing to do with the plot.
2. Convoluted plot, along with:
3. Clues that don't fit together or make sense from a game standpoint.
4. The game is buggy. It would lose my progress and even objects I had found. I ended up saving my progress often to keep this from happening.
5. The inventory drawer would not stay open when I wanted to peruse its contents. It kept shutting, and if I was too persistent in trying to open it, I would find I had inadvertently tapped on the "move to the next room" arrow.
6. As others have mentioned, the game crashes at inopportune moments, causing you to lose items in your inventory. This happened to me early in the game. You'd think that even with a crash it would save the items in your inventory, but they randomly go missing! Your only choice is to start the game over.
All in all, a waste of my time.

Great except no ending
I loved this one until the Bonus Chapter, where the HOSs mentioned in the awesome Strategy Guide never appeared & so I couldn't receive an important tool (at least 4!). So I can't finish the game. :( (I already tried rebooting my iPad.)
Otherwise, my favorite thing about this game is the Time Machine, because what I dislike most about these types of games is having to "go back 7 scenes" which requires waiting for each scene to load. The Time Machine allows you to jump straight to the location you want, plus tells you where there are actions available. Now I'm spoiled with that feature!
This game was lacking the feature where the mini games tell you what the goal of the mini game is, but the strategy guide will tell you.
