Hidden object and adventure.
I was impressed by the animation that went into portions of the game. It went beyond the usual throw-in story of most hidden object adventures.
The plot was decent and you were reminded pretty constantly of what was going on by contextual clues.
The location of the next hidden-object puzzle is usually hidden in the most-current location (a picture, etc) otherwise you can just spam the hint button and it will get you to the right area.
High resolution puzzles made it easy to pick out the items that were required and lots of hidden object puzzles were present in the game (with only a couple of exceptions)
The doubling back to the "guardian" to unlock the chest that takes like 20 doubloons to open was kind of annoying. It isn't required throughout the game, but that's not made apparent while you're playing.
A couple of the puzzles had sections that were a bit hazy and fuzzy on my 43inch monitor (no, not TV.. monitor)
All in all, this was a good game. I enjoyed the story. Not so much the fact that you were a talking character (and female at that) which disconnected me from the main character a bit. But, still it's a game and it was a good one even if some of the sequences were pretty obvious.
