Disappointing. It had such potential.

The puzzles are unintuitive, the voice acting is strained and/or amateurish, and the writing needs work. The only pleasing character is the shopkeeper in the Chinese shop, but he's only got a few lines, unfortunately.

The plot is okay, but the way the characters bicker stopped being entertaining after about the first hour of play. For some reason there is mutual animosity between nearly every character you come across, as if the game's author can't write any emotion other than irritation. The worst offenders are a part of your party and cannot be avoided.

I kept playing it because I wanted to get my money's worth, but at this point I'm actively not enjoying myself, so I'm quitting. I already figured out what the villains are most likely up to, anyway, and that was the only interesting thing in the whole mess.

Quite fun
You are a girl that is haunted by your dead sister and with the help of some ghosts, that have convenient abilities, you go on a journey to save your sister. Goofy shenanigans ensue.
The puzzles are mostly straight forward (except the one where you have to Baptiste a sock puppet ?!?!)
It does manage to get you invested in the characters and it does have its funny moments.

I am really enjoying this game! I would suggest it to any point and click adventure game fan. I've played a ton of this genre and this one has great humor, great voice acting, it's beautiful, interesting, it's challenging, but not too challenging. Really cool what they did with the ghosts in the inventory. Before buying I saw reviews about it not working, so I was hesitant, but I havent had any problems with the game functioning. I'm loving it!

A good point & click game.

This game not provide you any mini-games to you but offer you a lot of puzzles that can solve with unique abilities of ghosts haunted you. I think it's great idea to focus on puzzle only instead of mix with hidden object or mini-game.

Help system in game is very useful, you will not have problems if you use it to solve mystery, and don't worry that making game easy because although you use help you still got clue not a sudden solving. It is forcing you to use your brain anyway.

This point and click adventure is cute. It is a little flawed but enjoyable. I would give it a 6.5/10 and say it is worth its price for about 6 hours of light hearted gameplay.

You should play this game if you are a point and click fan who is looking for a light hearted story with lots of object based puzzles and amusing dialogue. The production is excellent. The visuals and voice acting are really high quality. The puzzle design is good at first: it is logically sound and the basic interface means you won't get stuck for long.

However the puzzle quality diminishes through the game. You still are not likely to get very stuck but by the last two chapters you'll find yourself resorting to trial and error.

You should avoid if you are expecting a difficult puzzle game or any kind of involved plot. It is a children's cartoon made into an adventure game and does well as that. It will keep grown ups amused with the amusing dialogue and mostly well designed puzzles but its really best for kids.
