“It’s hard to find an honest fault in Nearwood. The graphics are amazing, the puzzles are tightly constructed and logical, mini-games are creative and challenging, and there are enough extras to keep you entertained for hours.”
5/5 – Gamezebo

O tej grze

The fate of the magical world is in your hands – free it from evil!

There is a new threat looming over Nearwood: all of a sudden, winter has come down upon the land. The once green and lush landscape is now locked in ice and covered with snow, driving away the gnomes from a quiet village on the outskirts of the kingdom. Fey the Advisor again calls upon Jane for help, and together they inch their way towards the source of the cold – which turns out to be more than a mere fluke of weather. An ancient evil has awakened to take hold of Nearwood: the powerful Killiman is back for revenge after thousands of years spent in captivity between the two worlds.

As Jane and Fey explore new locations, they help the villagers survive the freeze, while once again saving Nearwood from the clutches of impending doom!

Now before I begin this, I want you to know that I've played around 20 hidden object games in the last couple months so I am well versed in this genre.

Nearwood blew me away. It is one of the most visually stunning hidden object games out there. I was excited everytime I accessed a new area - every scene is beautiful. The characters and creatures look great. Some of the animals are the cutest I've seen. Voice acting is better than average for this genre. The music is lovely AND you have access to all the songs since this is the collector's edition. The puzzles range from very easy to "ack, this is hurting my brain" but you can skip any of them, if you so desire. The length of Nearwood, especially with the bonus game, is longer than most hidden object games. And there is a very cool "boss battle" that most puzzle games lack. I do have to warn you, the hidden object aspect of the game is limited and when you hit them, you're only searching for specific item parts. However, the game is SO good that the lack of "normal" hidden object areas didn't bother me in the least. I really could go on and on about how much I enjoyed playing this. I'll just finish with - I highly recommend it. :)

A cute adventure game with pretty pastel scenes reminiscent of a Thomas Kincaid painting. Fantasy atmosphere. I wouldn't call this a hidden object game but more a lite adventure There are not any traditional hidden object scenes, but there are a few mini-games where you need to find 10 pieces of pipe (or whatever) in a background. Most of the gameplay is going around trying to find objects that unlock functions on things that allow you to get other objects, like a standard adventure game.

The bonus chapter is along the same vein as the main story. There are no replayable scenes as extras.

This game is a series of puzzles ranging from simple to MENSA level mind breakingly challenging. With such excellent visuals no puzzle gaming fan should be dissuaded by this. There is a guide to help if you get stuck, or just skip the puzzle. The only puzzle that seemed to be guesswork was the seasons puzzle shown in the screenshot, there is a shoe, and an umbrella, I guess those are only needed during certain seasons?
(For summer, the shoe coulda been a flip-flop. While for Fall, the umbrella coulda been anything like a pile of leaves. What is that umbrella even for in the fall?)

While solving puzzles be on the look out for little creatures that tell their own bonus story in the snoopedia of the hard life of living in a fantasy paradise. We need more games on this level of awesome, to appeal to the masses those puzzles need to be toned down to more human levels outside the realm of needing to be an Einstein. Noone wants to bring shame and dishonor upon their family by resorting to the use of the *gulp* skip button on a clever puzzle.

Loses one point because you cant replay the game with the same profile, you have to delete your profile or create a new one to play it again losing your snoopedia progress. Don't know what a snoopedia is? Then you havent even lived!

i really enjoyed this game. it is a favoriite in my household. we enjoy it a lot.
i'd give it a 8/10 (if they fix the glitches maybe a 10/10)

Pros:
it has many other games/puzzles in it besides the story's "hidden object" challanges, beauiful music (includes OST for download), wallpapers, concept art, and the graphics are divine (very bright and festive).

Cons:
voice acting...is...over the top sometimes. some of the puzzles make 0 sense and glitch often on certain ones (thank God for the SKIP option played on casual mode). there is a major LAG towards the end of the Bonus Game (which is a SHORT sequal btw)...that is a bit of a let down too.
the story is lacking in some departments but this is not an epic hardcore rpg either. this is a casual point and click hidden object game. (with prettier graphics and fantastic soundtrack.)

if you're into this type of game then by all means buy it :D but if you're looking for something in higher standards i'd say still give it a go but wait for it to go on sale.

i'm glad i bought this game. ive beaten it twice already. it never gets old. takes about 3hrs to beat (depending on your personal play speed).

The gameplay is pretty, and the story is very interesting. The ending is a bit abrupt though.

I have to admit that I've only recently gotten into these types of games so I bought the "Sinister Bundle" while it was on sale as it was a great value so my review may have some what may seem as petty complaints to more seasoned players.

Anyways, overall this game was entertainingly worthwhile with a few setbacks.

Story:

+ standard "girl looking for her parent(s)" fare, nothing groundbreaking but not entirely throwaway either as the fantasy elements and art are vibrant and inviting.

- Pretty much all the creatures/characters are just "there," You find an item for them (or even do nothing at all) and that's the end of them. I wished that some of them got more use, whether appearing later on in the game with another need/puzzle or even just a quick story scene.

+/- I found the ending to come at a reasonable point but it could be viewed as abrupt.

Gameplay:

- I played on expert difficulty as I don't like the flashy help and hints, but that was a big mistake and wholly not recommended for 1st playthroughs as many interactive areas are too hidden and not easily recognizable. So unless you want to waste energy clicking everywhere on the screen then I'd recommend at most the 2nd difficulty. I didn't see an option to change it mid-game so I continued on, so a lot of my time was spent going back and forth trying to find the last item of a set needed to progress and tapping like mad (I only resorted to using the in-game guide once towards the end and I was disgusted at how unobvious the spot was).

+/- Some puzzles were a complete pushover while others had more a involved challenge. But as others have said, the rules and need of some of them aren't immediately clear, to which the prospect of figuring out on your own will either excite or frustrate you (you're helper Fey does pop up with a "?" button which I assume will explain things but I never bothered with it).

+ Items found are only needed in areas 1 - 3 areas away so no crazy backtracking.

- I played on a tablet pc, which did work well, but sometimes trying to use an item on the correct area wouldn't register correctly and needed a few extra tries. I'm not sure if the tablet touch had something to do with it or there were very specific spots that needed to be hit but it was annoying.

- Other than a couple of mixing puzzles, there's no manipulation of items. I would've liked to have seen some combining and such things.


Extras:

+ Promo art and soundtrack and others. Nice set of stuff so I can't complain.


In the end, many of my gripes are pretty minor and personal so it's still easily recommendable. Thumbs up!

One of the best HOGs that I've ever played (and I played A LOT of HOGs), with stunning graphics and good minigames. Ironically the Hidden Object scenes are few and simple but the rest of the game makes up for it, even if it's short (4 hours at the highest difficulty). After the main story there's an extra playable chapter and some nice bonus tracks and wallpapers. Interesting character design (some monsters look just like Totoro!) and very detailed backgrounds.

This game has tremendous vizuals. After years of playing shooters and games with blood and guts, I wanted something lighter and immersive in a different manner. This. Is. It. It can be a bit cheesy but it's damn cute, it can be a bit difficult with the puzzles, but theyre damn beautiful. Also mini furby things. Haven't finished the game but each scene is beautiful, all the pallates are fantastic. Very happy with it so far. Did I mention it's beautiful? I can't...stop...staring...

One of the best HOG on Steam. Pretty natural landscapes and adorable fuzzy creatures make this game somewhat too cutesy at times, but overall a very enjoyable, casual experience. Bonus points for the spectacular start-screen animation.

I played through this game twice, once for story and once for completion.

It is not actually a HOG in the traditional sense; it is an extremely casual point-and-click adventure that happens to mix in a handful of HOG-like elements.

Gameplay consists of:
1. Object-based puzzles (find an object, then use it where it's needed).
2. Mini-games that utilize rotating discs, matching, pattern recognition, mazes, and other simple challenges.
3. FROG puzzles (fractured object I-spy puzzles).
4. Recipes (combine several components together to create a new item).
5. A global I-spy puzzle that requires you to spot 111 "Snoop-see" creatures across both the main game and bonus mission in order to unlock pages of a book.

This game did several things right. The artwork is beautiful (almost Jim Henson-esque), the mini-games are fresh and creative, the adventure puzzles are intuitive, the music and voice-acting are decent, and the FROG puzzles are challenging but not frustrating.

It is a good gateway game for those new to the genre. They do a great job of providing constructive feedback to players, and they include both a hint system and a complete walkthrough (including Snoop-see locations) for anyone who is struggling. Additionally, on easier difficulties, the game map shows points of interest, and allows you to teleport to any screen. As an extra little bone to players, the pages unlocked by the Snoop-see hunt provide visual clues to the game's puzzle solutions.

I would have liked them to have a stronger story hook, and to use the dialogue more effectively (the start of the game is especially slogged down with cutscenes). I also would have liked a bit more variety in the object-based puzzles; you can only collect so many keys, handles, triangles, and seals before it starts to feel repetitious.

Another thing that bugged me was the need for precision when using objects. If you don't interact with the right hot spot, the puzzle will not recognize the required solution.

One special note: players who are colour-blind will have difficulty with the mini-games, as many of them require colour recognition to solve. This is a major concern because the mini-games are a rather large component of the gameplay.

Overall, I would give this game a 7/10. It was more child-like than I expected, and there weren't really any true HOG puzzles, but the art was pretty and the mini-games were fun. It is a decent casual game to waste a few hours with, although I wish I had earned a few steam playing cards or achievements for playing.

Short version: 75%
It’s hard to find any other fragmented hidden object game that looks better than Nearwood, but the gameplay and plot has serious design flaws.

Long version:
On the surface Nearwood looks like the poster child of fragmented object games. The excellent voice acting and the highly detailed, absolutely stunning painted graphics all promise to enchant you as soon as you hit the Play button. Sadly this beauty is skin deep.

The story is as stock as it gets: you arrive in a clichéd fairy land tortured by a clichéd zero-dimensional evil to find a clichéd relic which can deal with this menace. Same in the bonus chapter with an added cartoonish over-the-top villain monologue.

The puzzles and fragmented object scenes offer a great variety both in types and difficulty, but there are a few questionable design choices. For example the fast travel option needs to be recharged, making the map useless; and the final (match-three) puzzle is actually based on sheer luck with the promise of many retries.

Still, Nearwood is an astonishingly gorgeous game that is worth to be played just for the looks alone. Just don’t expect much more from it.

It's a beautiful game, and worth the price for that alone. Great point and click game (very few hidden object scenes, despite what the tags say) when you want to just relax and enjoy the art.
