There are NO instructions for the games... ...that is big issue 1! Some are obvious, several I've never seen before. And I've played many many of these games. There are errors in the HO'S which can be frustrating; and there are way too many HOs. When told to find a "helm" you are in actuality looking for a helmet, the "fang" is bones hanging from a string that in no way resemble fangS, the "fiddle" is an English type round guitar, of course I cannot recall them all. Hidden object games and just objects themselves can be areas you know you've tapped already and some locations are obscure at best.
Can't finish the game In one of the puzzles where you get your stuff for the timetraveling device it's asking for a magic cube. I see the cube, and tab it like a monkey on speed but nothing happens. So im stuck at this point. Poor programming.
Short and Sweet This is one of the first that came out, you can tell because of the graphics. I feel like most of the ratings are really harsh. It's easy to complete in a couple hours but it's still well done and I've played worse. And the HOGS aren't awful. I would buy it while it's on sale for 1.99. I bought #2 because the comments where excellent and I wanted to do the entire series. Still... you go to 7 different time periods....
Short and easy This dev produces better games for the price, such as the Grim Legends series. However, if you're new to these types of games, or you simply prefer a shorter adventure game that involves mainly hidden object scenes and simple puzzles, this is a good choice. It can be completed in a few hours, unlike some of their other games, which can provide hours entertainment and can be played for days. Still, I'm happier paying to play considering it's only the price of a latte :)
It's a cute game... A nice story. Main issue is with the hidden objects. Way too difficult to discern in most cases. Some were a "just tap & see what happens". The dialogue, although understandable, was sometimes out of sequence a bit & the "kidnapper" sounded like the voice of a computer instead of a person. And, what is this cataclysm Merlin, aka Ball, is supposed to help divert?? Perhaps, in Part 2?? We'll see...
