Well worth the purchase price!
I wasn't sure at first if this game could be worth $5, but it absolutely is! There are hours of enjoyment to be had! The graphics are beautiful, the story and puzzles are engaging, the user interface is easy to use, and the journal and map are great features! Blackwater was so much fun (and I've only just begun the bonus content) that I purchased another of BigFish's Hidden Object games site-unseen, and I'm going to purchase this game for my mom's iPad! The only down-sides to this game are its lack of in-game clock and battery indicator, and the file size. You can easily play for 6 hours straight and not notice your iPad's battery has dropped to 12%. Also, despite the game being listed as around 600MB, the install is actually 1.2MB. I would be interested in a smaller version of the game, perhaps with still images instead of movies, and with the voice acting removed (there's already text). This would ultimately allow me to install more of these games on my iPad. However my iPad is now close to its limit, so my ability to purchase additional games is also limited.
TL;DR - If you like puzzle/adventure/hidden object games, don't wait any longer! Download this game!
Well done, but the hints could use some help..
This BF game has all of the qualities I like - you can choose the difficulty level so sparkles don't bombard you, the storyline is interesting and submersive, and the music is ambient. The one thing I'd like to see a change in is the hint system. Occasionally you do get stuck and don't want to open the guide which is essentially a walk-through. Takes away from the submersive quality that is so attractive. When you activate a hint on something that may be two parts, it takes you to the second instead of the first. For example, if you're looking for a piece that's locked in a safe, the hint system will take you to the safe instead of where you can find the combination. This can be frustrating with as many rooms as you've been in, and not knowing where the combination might be. That's my only suggestion as far as the programming goes. Otherwise, this was one of my favorites from BF.
It was okay, I guess
Usually the seven dollar hidden object games from Big Fish meet a quality level that includes challenging puzzles, an interesting story line, and acceptable duration of gameplay, and an engaging plotline. This game had all the elements that I've grown to expect including a bonus section and I game walk-through. The storyline was fairly interesting also, definitely holding my attention. My major problems were twofold: the puzzles were incredibly easy and the Game climax was nonexistent. Once you step through all the processes and got to the and to fight the bad guy, it was over literally in 10 seconds and was automated! They made up for that somewhat in the bonus section, but the bonus section is supposed to be just that a bonus not the last act of the game!
