Charming HO game, but ultimately frustrating

What I liked
  • Generally lighthearted and charming tone.
  • Simple story taking place in a steampunk Victorian setting.
  • Cute and likeable main character (both the voice acting and the illustrations)
  • Variable quality of voice acting - it's fine as long as they don't try to do an accent.
  • The hinting system is like a minigame, with several options to choose from.
  • Zoomable and scrollable scenes add a layer to the gameplay.
  • High quality art throughout - I especially appreciated the detailed artwork in the closeup of each object I found (but then why make them so darn tiny in the scenes? More on that below)
  • Inventory item blurbs are pretty fun to read, made me chuckle several times.
  • Free play mode once you finish the story mode, with object locations changing. A pretty nice addition to the game, but marred by the same gameplay issues (more below)

What I didn't like
  • Objects to be found are often extremely tiny. I am talking about ten pixels squared on the screen. That's not how you add challenge to a HO scene. (and I'm not referring to the zoomable scenes.)
  • The objects in questions, and their descriptions, tend to be just confusing. "Church lantern". "Cheese spoon". Do these terms convey images in your mind as to what the object looks like? "Bookmark" turns out to be a metal knife-like object, more like a letter opener. A "magnifying glass" turns out to be the freestanding type, not at all the shape you have in mind. And so on.
  • Because of the above, the hinting system actually has an option to show you what an object looks like (but not where it is.) If you have to offer such a tool, then you know your HO scenes are lacking.
  • Pretty short. 3 hours to finish the story mode. But there's a free play mode afterwards if you think the game is worth it.
  • No Steam integration of any kind (no Steam overlay or chat or F12 screenshots, and no Steam cloud save or achievements or cards.)
  • No Alt-Tab. Your screen will flicker and then put you back in the game. And windowed mode is too low-red.
  • The Steam store screenshots are misleading: the game is 4:3 and not widescreen.
  • The main character, Miranda, is a capable inventor and mechanic, but she's somehow tricked again and again into cleaning up the messes of the other characters (all men, by the way). There was a couple of puzzles where she had to construct or fix stuff, though.

I get the impression that they were so happy with their elaborate hinting system that they wanted to give people a reason to have to use it. Thus the obscure objects.

Difficult decision, thumbs up or down... the game was charming, looks lovely, and the player character is so endearing... but ultimately I can't recommend it for gameplay.

PS. I should note that the game wouldn't run for me on my main PC, throwing up some sort of error. I posted in the forums and one of the developers was nice enough to offer suggestions to troubleshoot. Nothing worked, but I appreciate their help. I eventually installed and played it on another PC.

This is a review for both "Clockwork Man" and "Clockwork Man: The Hidden World" since I played them back to back and they share the same lead character. Actually, I've played both these games many times on a different PC before I got into Steam. So my playtimes you see for each will probably be less than a normal playthrough since I can whiz through the games by now. We'll start with game #1:

Pros:
- Nice graphics and good character designs. The main girl, Miranda (YAY, she has my name!), is quite lovely.
- The voice acting is also good, for the most part. I really like who they chose for Miranda. Some of the others can be a bit cheesy but it is amusing rather than irritating.
- Interesting story.
- Both games have a very neat hidden object feature. Scrolling and zooming. Not every scene but many allow you to move around the area. Some items are sneakily hidden behind others but just one click to the left or right will reveal them.
- Both games also have an interesting hint system. You travel around with a little robot man and he'll help you locate those tough to find objects. He starts out with the ability to just tell you where a random something is. Then a little into the story, he learns how to give you an item's silhouette (which is the hint I prefer if I'm stuck). Further in the story, he gets other abilities. Like briefly highlighting each metal object on your HO list.
- In both games, the music isn't spectacular but it's pleasant to listen to. Actually, in #2 there are a couple places with very lovely melodies.
- When you beat each game, Freeplay opens up. This gives you random hidden object areas. Good for if you're in that "I have a craving to find stuff" mood.

Cons:
- Neither game is connected to Steam while you're playing. So you won't be able to chat with friends or take steam screenshots.
- Unfortunately, both games have issues when it comes to clicking on items. You'll find you need to be very precise and occasionally you'll need to click more than once or try clicking on a different part of the object. It doesn't happen TOO often or else I wouldn't be able to recommend these games.
- Both games are short. Boo.


Now I'll list the differences in Clockwork Man: The Hidden World:

- The length is longer. Because of the higher difficulty, possibly much longer.
- This game has a journal where Miranda records her adventures and anything of note. You WILL need to use this journal to solve quite a few puzzles.
- There are many more puzzles in #2 and some of them are downright devious. There are no skip options either. Also, it's easy to miss things that you need in some scenes so you might get stuck for awhile. I love this game but it IS a bit aggravating sometimes. Those who enjoy a challenge will have fun. :D
- The story has no tie-ins with the first game. The Hidden World's plot is much more involved than #1 and, in my opinion, fascinating.
- The voice acting, again in my opinion, is better than the first game. (Miranda is still the same, which is good!)
- Maybe it's my imagination but it seems the graphics are better in #2, though I'm pretty sure they used the same game engine.
- When you finish the game, you can rewatch any of the cutscenes.


So in closing, I really enjoy both these games so I'm definitely recommending them to hidden object and puzzle fans. But, because of their short length, you should wait and grab them when they're on sale.


Important Note! The games might not load up for you, which is an issue I had. Right click on the Clockwork Man title, click on Properties, click on Local Files, click on Browse Local Files (which will bring up your program files for the games), right click on the Clockwork Man title again, click on Troubleshoot Compatibility, and finally click on Try recommended settings. I did that for each game and then they worked just fine.

The difficulty level of the Hidden Object parts are LEGENDARY only for the bravest of brave to attempt. The images on the store page for this game look widescreen, but clicking the video shows the game is 4:3. This is normally not a big deal in puzzle games, but in this game its a HUGE deal due to how tiny the objects that need to be found. Playing on a widescreen you may literally need a magnifying glass to find objects, doesnt help that some areas have multiple areas with no indicator as to which scenes contain what objects. Even worse is that some objects are literally a few pixels in size due to its older ratio where that might not have been a problem for widescreen users combined with many objects being very low resolution this game will pose obstacle of herculean proportions. Items also spawn randomly, so go ahead and stare all day for a missing item, it may not even be on the screen, or it may have spawned behind another object since its random. This leads to reloading the game alot to reset objects to random positions hoping the objects spawn in an area that is visibly clickable. Even completely visible objects are hard to click due to them having such a teeny tiny clickable area that may have you clicking all over even though you feel your clicking right on the object itself.

The puzzles are at just the right difficulty not to impossible but challenging enough that finishing them feels rewarding. Oddly though many of these cant be skipped, there is no guide in the game like other games to help you so players may end up stuck unable to ever continue the game. Worse is that with some puzzles the pieces may be missing. Meaning the pieces spawned off screen, so you may need to reload the game many times to finish a puzzle to reset the locations of pieces.

The story is awesome with very good voice acting, this saves the game from being a total disaster, but the gameplay elements are so buggy their almost broken making it a very tedious and exhausting gameplay experience. Pretty sure the game like the title screen hasnt been updated since 2012 so guessing what bugs are there will be there forever sadly.

Rating: 2/10 Value: $0.99

The gameplay is ok, and the art has some nice late-90s CD-ROM puzzle game aesthetics. Unfortunately, there's very little game to play. I'd swear the cut scenes are a full half of the game, and they're horrible. The template is: "bwahaha, foolish girl, I tricked you into cleaning my [space]!" "Oh how dare you, you churl!" "Relent, miss! Out of guilt I will actually do what was requested of me."

But seriously, almost every scene is your character being tricked into cleaning up after people. And you're the only female character. You play a girl who goes around cleaning up after men. It's actually the whole story.

Valve, please. Just give us one more option besides a "yes" or a "no". A half-hearted "mneh" or a a shrug icon or even a thumb pointing sideways.

Because that's how I feel about The Clockwork Man. Not angry or frustrated enough to condemn this hidden object game, but not impressed enough to turn my thumbs upwards either.

There're certainly some aspects to praise about the game. It comes with a fairly unique hint system, built into the game's clockwork sidekick. It uses charges to help the player find more difficult objects, and recharges slowly over time so it doesn't make the game too easy all at once. The art is nice at least, and the game is mildly spiced up with other kinds of puzzles in-between hidden-object-finding sessions.

On the other hand, there just isn't much else to the game. I finished in about two hours, with some help from the hint system. The puzzles are nice, but they're also obvious (and overdone) to the seasoned puzzler. Upon completion, The Clockwork Man offers a freeplay mode, but those are for Hidden Object maps that you've already played by then.

The biggest disappointment had to be the setting. It promised an alternate-history steampowered Victorian world, and it delivered that in the first few moments. But then you're sent to an under-developed tropical island where little to none of that ever comes into play. Your "global" adventure only consists of a few moments in your Victorian home and the rest of it on a single generic tropical mystery-island. The only steampowered clockwork wonders you'll experience are your sidekick Sprocket and what you discover during the short finale.

Hidden Object game enthusiasts will like this more, but they'd be better off with The Clockwork Man Bundle, which consists of this game and its sequel (which appears to at least have more Victorian steampunk elements). For everyone else though, whatever the second game is like, I can definitely say that The Clockwork Man is underwhelming and not worth a full-price purchase.
