Annoyingly frustrating

Ugh. Don't pay for this game. Give the trial a try, but this game is on pretty low standards compared to other games of this sort. Biggest frustration is that half of the puzzles don't work! They end up frozen and you keep having to skip through them to move on. The plot had been overdone and isn't keeping my attention. I'm afraid we might keep seeing games of this sort as Big Fish tries to push deadlines and spit out new games before all the bugs are worked out. And no, I don't work for any rivalry company. Just a hidden objects game addict who appreciates a good product when I see it, and who is disappointed when it's not.

Very glitchy

You have to keep touching some of the objects over and over and over again. Very frustrating to have to skip puzzles because of that and even more frustrating when you are forced to use the hint button in the hidden object portion and they tell you, you were right in first place so you have to start tapping it again. I hated touching the hint button and then just get taken back to where you had previously been. Trying to X out of a clue then it asks you if you want to quit (yes I do).And I had to skip some puzzles because they where just too darn small to see.
Not worth buying


I love big fish games. But this one not so much. One you can't see the word of the item your looking for then if you do find it you have to tap it a hundred times to get it. Two way too short. I finished the game in less then an hour of buying it. The story itself was not bad, but they have done better a lot better! 3 stars just because I really do like big fish games.
