BAD GRAPHICS & TOO MUCH DIALOGUE
I own all three of these games and they all have the same problems. The hidden object areas are too dark and monochromatic. You can be looking right at the object and still not see it. Even when the Hint is pointing to some of the objects, you'd be hard pressed to describe it. There is way too much dialogue between game scenes. The characters aren't saying a darn thing which adds to the game. However, if you try to click your way through the dialogue, you take a chance on hitting the screen one time too many and missing the instructions to the mini-games. Once you miss those instructions, you are screwed because there's no "?" or "Info" button to help you out. I thought the mini-games were so lame that I just wait for the "Skip" button to activate. The games only cost about $2 each when I got them so I spent the money to have a few mindless Hidden Object games to play while waiting for developers who are much better at this genre to release something new. Maybe, a first-grader with perfect vision and a lot of patience would enjoy these.
I'm veery impressed with the new release of Mystery Agency. They did a great job of keeping the puzzles varied and thereby retaining the player's interest. Although I am definitely fan of hidden object games, I really like how they interspersed different types of puzzles into the game. Incidentally, I had no problem with any of the puzzles.
One of my biggest complaints with most HO games is that they're done in a half hour. I have spent about 75 minutes playing the game and it still goes on.
My only complaint is one I have with many games for the iPad/iPhone, the documentation is either bad or non existent with most games.
To date, this is definitely my favorite HO category game for the iPad.
Keeps you occupied for awhile
My complaint is some of the areas where you are searching are very dark, its hard to see small items !!! You also have to wait to skip the mini games, and I'm not sure yet how you get back to them.
Overall its a decent game, keeps you busy for awhile. I'd recommend it.
