This is one of thos Hidden Object games that doesn't even pretend to make sense or have a worthy plot beyond go here and click x. Its puzzles are laughable and the only difficulty comes from the graphics being so bad that you can't see the objects you are looking for. If you really want to play a Hidden Object game there are literally thousands of them to choose from that are better than this.

There are a lot of really well made hidden object games available on steam. This...is not one of them.

Not only is it strung together by nothing even remotely resembling a coherent story but the hidden object puzzles themselves (of which there are MANY) are pretty awful. The same objects are repeated a lot, many are misspelled or completely the wrong word for the object (clocks are called "watches" throughout). The other puzzles in the game are more of the same of the type of thing you see in these games and are often even repeated two or three times to pad things out a bit.

It's also (mercifully) very short but ends on...something? I hesitate to call it a cliffhanger because that would suggest they leave it somewhere that makes you want to return later for a sequel. This is not the case.

If your after a decent Hidden Object game I'd look elsewhere. There's plenty of good ones on Steam and this one is REALLY not worth your time.

* The game alternates crappy hidden object puzzles and nice, diverse sliding puzzles.
* The pacing is good.
* Disregard the storyline, this is a puzzler, not an adventure.
* 1024x768, no achievements, 2-3 hours of gameplay.
* The hidden puzzles are buggy, but then they are also forgiving, so who cares.
* Hint button recharges relatively fast, I took it on about half of the HO puzzles.
* It's not scary.
* Definitely a bargain bin title.

The character art is gorgeous (on the rare occasions you actually see it) and the music isn't bad.

That said, "I do not think that word means what you think it means" seems to fit far more often than it should, especially for a hidden object game; a few objects seem to have their names switched, and others are just... off. For example, if it says you need to find a watch, you're probably looking for a wall or table clock.
Many backgrounds have very dark edges where you have to be perfectly lined up and rather close to your monitor to find that last item or two. The other items? Well, if you go around and click anything that looks out of place, you'll probably find most of them within a minute.
Minigames seem to switch between ridiculously easy and time consuming enough that you might as well wait for the skip button, with a couple that could really use an explanation tossed in the mix.

The story seems more like an outline to work with than something that should have been released - absolutely no character development means the few snippets we see make very little sense as a whole, the "ending" in particular. Speaking of the ending, it's... not really an ending; I'm assuming there is or will be another game that picks up where it left off.

If you want item hunt after item hunt and very little else, this might be worth looking into. Otherwise, it wasn't even worth it as part of a bundle.

The short: if you like back to back puzzles, with little to no story or narative, buy this game.

The long: it's a very straight forward find it game. i havent had some of the crashing issues as others have had, so those may have been fixed. The puzzles are challenging enough that they will make you think a bit inorder to solve. And i like the overall designs of the people and environment. And the design for the "secret weapon" in particular was really awesome, but thats about where it ends.

There is very little to the story. direction is follow the little sparkles and arrows, and there is almost no dialogue while moving from one puzzle to another. I feel like there was supposed to be more after where it ended. The ending was so sudden and at a crucial turning point. I thought i had missed a trigger inorder to continue, but since there is zero backtracking in this game i would assume not. afterwards i was just left with unanswered questions. So much infact i wouldnt be surprised if this was made to be a two-part game, but there are no indications of this other than the sudden stop. Are we supposed to assume Abigail used the "secret weapon" to defeat her uncle? Where is he keeping her father and this undead army hidden? Also the story in general made me feel like someone took a bad fan-fic of the prologue to Hellsing the anime.

As for the puzzles, yes they were challenging at first, but when you reuse the same puzzle with some different tiles, or make them a little longer, that is bad design. Also, many of the puzzles feel random and have little to do with their surroundings. There were some unique puzzles to this game and I feel like they could have done more with them to make them stand out.

Finally, there is minimal amount of interacting with the environment. i think the most i had to do was use a key to unlock some doors and a screwdriver to unscrew a vent to find a key. some items you find in this game simply disappear, like the one that tells you how to navigate the catacombs (kinda important)

All in all this game made me feel lacking. There was so much more the devs could have done. it was if i asked for a ham sandwich and all i got was two pieces of bread. all filler and no flavor. I wish this company good luck in their future (relative since this game has existid since 2011) endevors but this game was just lack luster 4/10
