So close to 5 stars. Fantastic graphics & easy navigation, but it's impossible to play without hints & cheats. About half the puzzles deactivate once completed-- the other half do not which only serves as a confusing distraction. I'm pretty good at this game genre, but was annoyed by how many times I had to rely on a walk-thru video.

I'm glad I got the full version for free from a sale as this game has several flaws interfering with gameplay: 1. Plot too vague to tell what end goal is; 2. Puzzles seemingly arbitrary in execution; 3. Pixel hunt needed to find some items/clues; 4. Confusion from being able to zoom in on scenery related to already-solved puzzles; 5. Tedious navigation without paying for shortcut system. It's okay for what it is and the graphics look nice, but there are better games of this genre that are free.

Love the games by Syntaxity! These are really solidly made games,I saw no glitches nor bugs. The art work was well done and imaginative, and the puzzles just the right amount of difficulty. If you can't figure something out, often you can work on a different part instead for awhile--it's not completely linear. I LIKE that, it adds to the complexity (sometimes you just haven't found the clue part anyway). Auto camera pics of clues is a great touch. Looking forward to playing more!
