Sadly this game gets a thumbs down.

First of all the story. It's straight forward. Nothing really gets told. And the ending is just unfinished. I do not know if it should be a "to be continued" or just plain confusing. You have to defeat your uncle. At the end you summon a demon/vampire and a lot of bats fly towards you. Do we defeat your uncle this way, or what? And where is your father. Or is he your father

This is not an adventure-game but an old-fashioned find and seek/puzzle games. There is just one direction. You solve HOG's and puzzles. one after another. After another. sometimes you get a dialog. But that's all. Nothing else becomes active unless necessary. You can't go wrong.
But the hog's are plain stupid. It looks almost as if the object, that can be found, are pasted on a background. Most of the times I didn't even look at what was needed. You just click, and it's done. With an exception here and there.

If you just want to play hog's because you are addicted, this is one for you. Otherwise, run away. I wish i never had found this one.

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

My mother gifted me this game, knowing I do so love hidden object games, and despite the negative reviews upon it, I decided to give it a shot. It is indeed as it was explained on the tin, a hidden object game. However, I sadly found it a bit lacking.

First off, gameplay. Scenes didn't have quite as many items in them as previous hidden object games I've played, which I guess made it overly easy for me. Save for a few points of which I must address. There are a few mispellings, as well as wrong labels for intended objects. In fact, once while playing a hammer was labeled as 'Goblet', and vice versa, making it a bit difficult if I was relying closely on the list. Other times, it was... Insanely easy to pick out the items due to how their texture quality clashed with the others around them. I would highly advise the makers with the next game, to make sure they don't enlarge items just to put them in the game. If you want it in so badly, add it in as it's current size to make it look further away.

Now, on to the puzzles between the games. Now, some of the puzzles sure were fun, and were a nice touch. However the sensitivity on some of the puzzles were off. I recall having to try and finish a puzzle three times, due to the fact it was not registering I finished it. And it took a little to figure out what I was supposed to do with some of them. It'd be a nice idea for the next installment to try and polish such things, and also let the player know what exactly is needing to be done.

And to the art. I must say, the art involving the characters was, actually quite to my liking. Characters looked quite lovely, and had plenty of differences between them. Which, given the small cast, is not all that surprising. Personally I would have loved to see more characters involved, especially with the talent of the person who drew them. A pity that there were not many scenes with the drawn characters though. Mainly dialogue snippits involving their base portraits.

And finally, the Story. I found myself disappointed, really. I was hoping the story would have more involvement with the gameplay. But there were very, very few intervals where storyline was inserted. It made the game... Grueling, almost. Having to deal with back to back searches and puzzles at times, just to try and progress the story some. I understand that they wanted to give the players more game to play, but that's not the direction to go with it. Now, nobody wants dialogue and story that drags on, but I'm sure no one likes speckles of storyline either. It's all about retaining a happy balance. Inserting plenty of interaction, without overdoing it, and plenty of story without dragging things out.

Either way, it was a decent game, perhaps okay for someone starting out with hidden object games. But for anyone who's looking for a immersive story to follow, or a challenging point and click game, I would not suggest it. Either way, it really depends on the kind of person who's checking it out.

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.

This is one of the first hidden object games I've ever played on Steam. I usually absolutely love hidden object games. This one, however, has multiple of one item (but you're only supposed to choose one and you have to pick the right one out of the multiple objects). In this case I was supposed to find clothespins. Well, there was a pair of clothespins holding up a cloth, but that wasn't the set of clothespins you were supposed to find, it was the bunch of them in a different place. There's also spelling errors because they didn't have enough space to write the entire item name. They shorten some words so that it could be one thing or something completely different. They are sometimes very specific on items (parasol and umbrella are separate).

There are also objects hidden almost completely behind something else to where you can only see a corner of it. Then some things are so blatanly obvious, you wonder why they put it there.

The puzzles are fun. I actually really enjoyed the puzzles part of this game. I haven't made it that far into the game, so I'm not sure if they'll keep changing or if they will just become longer versions of what has already been used, so I guess I have that to look forward to seeing.

I wouldn't even waste my money on this game when it's on sale. The story seemed really interesting and I love this type of story line and game, but I am majorly disappointed in how this game is made. I stopped playing this game and went back about a week later wondering why I stopped playing and instantly found out why I had stopped.

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.

* 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.

Its more of an episode 1 than a full game.
Visually, I noticed lines around the edges of the puzzle pieces, and one puzzle had some weird layering over some pieces. The thing that erked me the most was some items being mislabed, eg: calling a trowel a shovel, calling wall clocks watches, etc. I'm gonna blame that on translation error.
Deffinitely not worth $6.99. (I'm glad I got it on sale)

Only play this if you are a hardcore fan of hidden-object games, and even then only if you're run out of what to play.

It's pretty much a pure, old, low resolution hidden-object game. There are plenty of good hidden-object scenes, the puzzles are very nice, but there's little else: the story is thin and there's no real point-and-click adventuring.

The graphics are OK, but the music is painfully repetitive.

Unfortunately, several small bugs force me to give this a thumbs down. There are instances where you are asked to find an item and there are several items on screen that would logically match but only one is "correct." Worst, the objects might be wrong: in one scene I was told to find a "hammer" but through trial and error I found out that the required object was actually a chalice. YOU HAD ONE JOB.

Also, when there is some point-and-click to do, there is no indication of where you're supposed to click on screen. For example, at one point you're supposed to use a paperclip to unlock a door, but the cursor doesn't change or otherwise indicate that the door is not part of the scenery.

Still, I'm giving this a thumbs up for hardcore fans only: there are so many hidden-object scenes that it's still fun to play despite the problems.

The Secret Of Hildegards is a very boring, uninteresting hidden object game. There is not much of a story and its just hidden object scene and puzzle game one right after another. The scenes are poorly done and the objects blend too well into the background. I love most HOGs, but this is a snorefest.

2.5/5 stars
tl;dr: If it's more than a dollar, give it a pass.

- If you only wanted to do the HOG parts, you can skip the puzzles after a 45 second delay.
- Unlimited "Find" button with a 45 second cooldown if you get stuck.
- You get 5 clicks before the standard "oops" screen pops up, and there is no penalty for the 5 erroneous clicks.
- Room graphics are not repeated.

- Objects aren't truly "hidden" by being embedded into the scene. Rather, the object search relies almost exclusively on visual clutter. The simplicity of this searchstyle is reinforced by the use of perspective: if the shoes you must find are on a shelf in the rear of the room, then the graphic of the shoes will be relative to the visual distance of the shelf.
- The background objects (non-clickable items) in several rooms are softened while the clickable objects have a sharp edge, making some of the searches far too easy.
- The story is uninspiring and almost non-existent.
- Some nouns are not Canadian/N. American or are spelt incorrectly. For example, a "case" would be better described as a box, a "mallet" as a pickaxe, a "watch" as a clock, a "trident" as a gardening fork, and "mandeline" should be spelt mandolin.

The game cost me $1 and took me 2 hours to play through. The screens were pretty much non-stop hidden object events which was pleasant and what I wanted; no long dialogue screens. The movement from screen to screen was laid out for me in a direct path. The game, to it's credit, is linear so you don't wind up going back to previous screens wondering if you completed the requirements. It displays/removes directional arrows on the screen to let the player know that they are done in one room and are now required to move to another location. As with many HOGs, this one has zero replayability. Get it uber-cheap and gift it to someone who is learning how to play HOGs, and you've got a decent game on your hands. Otherwise, pass on this one.

If you're a fan of hidden object puzzles, this might be the game for you. This games has hidden object scene after hidden object scene, in which you collect objects of unexplained value. The endless puzzles are strung together with very little story. I couldn't finish the game because on my system, the hidden object puzzles would randomly display white fields in which no objects were visible (making completion of the puzzle impossible). With no story to string me along, I quickly gave up.

What the hell did I just play.
Very random puzzles where one often does not know what to do. Very boring HO-scenes that prolongen the game, badly designed backgrounds. No voiceover, no existing story.
Overall a bad game
