Appreciate the freebie but not much fun
I liked the artwork and I appreciate getting the freebie. Unfortunately, This wasn't much fun. They ask you for a review constantly -- that is annoying -- and the soundtrack is awful -- I had to turn it off. The gameplay itself is just room after room of object search. There is no zoom -- the magnifying glass is an awful tour -- and the images are tiny. It seems fairly arbitrary -- e.g., it asks for 2 candles but most of the many candles in the scene do not qualify; it is up to you to figure out what the candles they want look like. Other times the object name is meaningless -- e.g., "fashion design".
Mini games are not interesting either -- find the difference in a scene, in a microscope slide, in a fingerprint database (essentially).
Halfway thru, I started using the hints heavily because I stopped caring. Most of the achievements are achieved with no special effort other than finishing the game.
With or without the hints, the game is short. Thankfully as I wanted to be done with it. Deleting now. Much rather pay and play a higher quality HOG.
So far, so good
I only just started playing this game, but it seems to exemplify what I really look for in a good casual game of this type. The hero is a woman; the hidden object scenes reflect the plot, as opposed to containing a bunch of random and improbable items; and there is no drippy romance or overload of pink, "girly" items, even though the game is about the fashion world. Most importantly, the hero seems to be intelligent.
The only reason I don't give this five stars is because in my mind, only games like The Walking Dead deserve that honor. The Walking Dead actually made me cry, and it had characters with whom I built a connection. It was morally complex and had excellent puzzles and game mechanics. While this game isn't in that league, it's still quite good and should give a few hours of entertainment.
I consider this to be a solid 3 1/2 - 4 star game.
Pretty bad on iPad
I am a big fan of HOGs and have a number of titles from G5 for both my Mac and iPad. This one is really a disappointment on several levels.
There is no zoom feature (which isn't limited to this game) and for me it's extremely difficult to see many objects, which means using a lot of hints unnecessarily.
The Flashlight and Magnifying Glass tools are extremely hard to use as the focus follows your fingertip and that's always in the center, making it hard to see what is being shown without constantly lifting the finger. It would be better if the circle of light or magnification were above the fingertip, with the fingertip on the lower edge rather than spot in the middle.
The above two criticisms give me nothing but eyestrain and make the game unplayable after 15-20 minutes. Of course the vapid, cheesy dialog helps relieve the eyestrain by providing a moment of distraction.
