I really enjoyed this game. You play through as cop named Angelica Weaver, who can receive visions from the dead, which she uses to solve crimes.

The gameplay is broken up into three different kinds of play. Most of the game will be spent in a sort of point and click adventure mode where you'll collect tools and other objects to help you progress through the game. I was actually suprised how much of like a classic point and click this felt like.

Every now and again you'll search a location more in depth with a more traditional hidden object screen with a list of objects to find. This was fairly well designed and only one or maybe two times was I asked to find an item that I wasn't sure what it would look like.

And thirdly, occasionally you will reach a puzzle or minigame to mix things up. I really liked the puzzles, I never really felt all that challenged by them? But, I have played a lot of puzzle games in my time so, I might have had a lot of prior experience on my side. However, I don't believe the puzzles were meant to be all that difficult, instead just rewarding and fun to play with. I was quite happy with the puzzles.

If I had anything bad to say, the writing of Catch Me When You Can is a little clunky at times but has a good payoff. And, the voice acting was a little flat, kinda under acted at times. But, these were minor hiccups and I was able to take them with a grain of salt.

This edition also features some extra content which was pretty decent too. After you finish the game, you can go back and play any hidden object screen in an infinite object mode, where you find every possible object in the screen. Also, there's an extra chapter which surprisingly added a lot more to the story than I was expecting.

I wouldn't just recommend this to fans of the genre, I'd recommend this to fans of adventure games with an open mind. Hidden Object games have come a long way and arguably have more room to grow, but this was a great bit of fun.

For about 5 minutes I thought this game might be okay. While there isn’t much plot It has a reasonable murder mystery premise to give you some motivation and initially the game made some logical sense e.g. use pruners to cut plant, find key, use key on door.

Fairly simple but not bad. Then suddenly it a case of there are 10 random bricks hidden in places that make no sense. They might be under the sofa, in a gutter, up a lamp pole and you have to find all of them by basically clicking everywhere. Even worse finding some of them requires using inventory items that could logically be used almost everywhere, so again, click click click..

There are some simple mini games to break this up the crushing monotony. But honestly it’s too late, you’ve already started to question all the decisions you’ve made in your life that has led you to this point of trying to extract some pitiful entertainment from clicking every pixel your monitor can muster.

This was a fine hidden object adventure until it decided not to let me play anymore. Should you happen to quit the game in the middle of a puzzle any attempt to start it up again will lead to a debug report launching instead of the game itself. The developers posted about fixing this problem in the Steam forum in December of 2013, but then gave up without a word. Can't really recommend it based on that.

MumboJumbo's HOG games are top notch. If you already play HOG games, then you probably already know that.

If you're one of those people who haven't really tried them but look down upon them automatically as a non-game or something overly casual, consider giving one a try. I did, and I was hooked.

HOG games are great when you're just looking to take a relaxing break and not for something that will raise your adrenaline or stress your brain too much.

I posted this review on the Angelica Weaver title arbitrarily, but the others I've played are of comparable quality. Midnight Mysteries is a great series as well.

Game has a debug error which prevents you from finishing game. Tech Support for this game have failed to fix. Check out the various Big Fish Forums. Don't waste your money!!!!!
