In my somewhat humble opinion - this is a charming, inventive game. A magic and detailed world has been created here if you take the time to look at what the artists have done. It's dreamlike; plants, insects and creatures are transformed. Granted, I haven't finished the game and I don't know what's coming, but so far it has everything I look for in a good hidden object adventure game; SG, TP Map, good hints, multiplayer, morphing objects, creative puzzles, etc. My ancient iPad has had no technical problems with the game whatsoever. I'm enjoying it immensely and heartily recommend it. We first generation iPad users have very few choices in games these days (Apple assumes everyone can afford to upgrade on a daily basis), and this game is one of the best offered to us. Enjoy. -Equinist
Frustrating - difficult to select objects
Half the objects don't recognize touch when your picking them up and I've noticed layering objects where you need to select something in the same space. It's frustrating to spend several minutes in a tap frenzy hoping it will finally pick up. And other times the the sensor isn't matched to the object (there's a glowing flash indicating where to tough but half the time it doesn't work) so I'm tapping around and object even inches away from it to select it.
The story is good, graphics are good, but some serious tweaking needs to be done for a better rating (which I'd be happy to do at a later time if fixed). But as things are now its so frustrating I find myself setting the game aside to cool off and try again later.
I liked this story; however, I feel like we could have seen more interesting animals. All we saw (as I recall) were just a bird, a fox, a bear, his cub, and a lynx. Aren't the weird animals the stars of this show?
The scenes are glitchy, in that the slightest tap near the bottom to pick something up immediately sends you to the previous scene.
The most frustrating part for me was trying to pick up the morphing fishbowl souvenir in the bonus round. The designers placed the bowl right dead in the same spot as where you should tap to leave the scene...which of course became quite comical with tapping, inadvertently leaving the screen, going back in, trying again and again and again and again. Poor placement! Very frustrating, and it was impossible to collect that item at all. (Didn't anybody check for that kind of stuff?)
So this was a fun time, but I feel they could have gotten a lot more mileage out of this clever premise. I'm always overjoyed to see a game without evil spirits, ghosts, satanic influences, etc.
