Good game, fun but not much plot There's a library of books and you solve each story. No travel from screen to screen with different psths, although each book is an interesting challenge, it gets a little stale.
Good game, bad implementation This is probably a great game on PC, but unfortunately the port to smartphone leaves a lot to be desired. A lot of the puzzles rely on very precise placement of objects on the screen. Unfortunately, the objects are often tiny and completely invisible beneath your fingers (and I have very small hands). Zooming in is tricky because it requires finding a space to pinch that doors not touch a manipulable object, and every time you touch something you can interact with you immediately zoom back out.
Loved it Like it's predecessor, it's a great game for people who like different kinds of puzzles. It has unique game play with the player having to solve the mysteries of each book to progress. Within most books are mini puzzles that you must complete to finish the book. As well, once you are finished, there is a bonus book plus a "lost pages" area that has some extra, replayable games. For those worried about the price, it took longer to complete than the standard +/-$2 plus you can replay all the puzzles (new solutions) without redoing the story. To me, it was worth it if you like point and click adventure type puzzles plus "mini puzzles". I will be keeping my eye out for #3.
Could be good but constantly hangs Seems to hang randomly after completing the first book, basically unplayable on Motorola Xoom. Bit of a pity really as it seemed good. Works well on the Samsung Galaxy Note but is basically unplayable on a Motorola Xoom running Jellybean.
Better Yet I really enjoyed the last game but near the end found that the puzzles repeated a bit, but this one has some new and unique puzzles, some I've never seen before. It is all laced within an item search game, which can get annoying when you've no clue what you can and can't pick up or what you're looking for so spend most the time frantically tapping every pixel on the screen until something works. But the ability to change pages opposed to being on the same page is interesting but just wish it was logical.
A smart phone user Loved the game had no problems great pictures loved the mini puzzles wish it had more hints to use as i got stuck on a few books
