Explore multiple rooms and find the hidden clues as you narrow down your suspect list in this classic adventure, puzzle game.
Hidden search is obtuse
I'm all for challenging hidden search, but the game is obtuse. Search for "pear" and it's not the bowl of pears sitting in front of you, it's the barely-visible pear hidden in the coverlet. Save your money.
Pretty, but slow
The pictures are intricate and nicely rendered. The hint "recharges" slowly, so you do have to work a bit. The puzzles are not particularly challenging; you need more persistence than brainpower. The music is soothing and extremely repetitive; I kept nodding off during one "scene." one thing that must be fixed is the launch of the frame story EVERY TIME you restart the game. Please, have the menu be the top screen.
I don't find "hidden object" games to be particularly enthralling, but I do appreciate the absence of a timer.
The music is soothing,and so is searching for objects. I found this game a little on the short side, and the reusing of rooms gets old. The story and voice over held no interest to me. I held high hopes for this game considering square enix's involvement, but was disappointed. There are better price comparable Big Fish games out there.
