Acerca de este juego

El destino del mundo mágico está en tus manos - ¡libéralo del mal!

Hay una nueva amenaza que se cierne sobre Nearwood: de pronto, el invierno ha descendido sobre la tierra. El paisaje verde y exhuberante está ahora bloqueado en el hielo y cubierto de nieve, ahuyentando a los gnomos de un pueblo tranquilo a las afueras del reino. Fey el Asesor pide nuevamente a Jane ayuda, y juntos avanzan poco a poco en su camino hacia la fuente del frío - que resulta ser más que una mera casualidad del clima. Un antiguo demonio ha despertado para apoderarse de Nearwood: el poderoso Killiman está de vuelta para vengarse después de miles de años pasados ​​en cautiverio entre los dos mundos.

A medida que Jane y Fey exploran nuevos lugares, ayudan a los habitantes del pueblo a sobrevivir a la congelación, mientras que una vez más salvan a Nearwood de las garras de la muerte inminente.

I won't do along review as I find they can twitter on,

okay, your mother dies and your father disappears...in your late teens early adult years you recieve a key to your childhood home. A elf type man meets you and then takes you through a portal. The long and short of it is time keepers trapped evil in a clock, your father tried to use clock to give life back to your mother. Hence doing it wrong freezing everyone of importance and evil escaping. You must now fix clock...ta da.

Art is beautiful and whimsical, calm, pale and slightly watercolour like a beautiful painted book.

story...needs a bit of work, ends too quick and practically what I said above is it. The bonus story makes little sense i.e when the clock broke a weather man who abusedf his power is free and freezing everything still as revenge.

Length...too short I played 5hrs and nearly three was running around with kids (thet like helping me play and beat bad guy).

Music cute and calm on non atntisipation areas, meh on fight

hidden objects and puzzles, nice variety, not just find what the word says and they don't over pop up and the puzzles are easy if you want to just casual along.

map is rubbish, areas stay red even if you can't do anything in there just yet. When you first start you think you should go back because you missed. This also causes a hiccup if you're not quite sure where to go as they're all blumming red.

The teleport button which stops you having to go through scene after scene recharges so slow. In the end didnt use it, got so fed up it was less stressful using hint button to tell me direction on the path (I knew where to go just didnt want to constantly pop up map)

good concept and pretty worth a go if you like this type

I love hidden obect games but somehow I hated this one.

Pros:
It looks nice.
The tiny creature collect is cute.

Cons:
The puzzles are illogical. I clicked the Hint button more times than I like to admit.
Too many cutscenes.

Its a puzzle/adventure/hidden object game, in which a girl sets off to a strange fantasy land seeking the whereabouts of her long-lost parents. Normally I would say if you've played one you've played them all but there are exceptions. I would add this to the exceptions list. The graphics were lovely-a storybook fantasy illustration art style with a touch of steampunk tossed in. The voice acting was well done. The soundtrack was quite nice and is included in the Collector's Edition. The story wasn't mind-blowing but it was interesting enough to keep me amused til the end. Puzzles were challenging but not overly difficult, with an interesting variety AND there were actually more puzzles than hidden object screens, which was a plus for me. All in all, a great game for the genre. I enjoyed it. My single complaint would be the lack of Steam cards/achievements, as there were many opportunities for them. 8/10

101 minutes into the game and what does it tell me when I open it today? My file was corrupted and deleted. For no apparent reason, or at least I can't think of one. This WAS a fun game, while I still had a game file, that is.

I felt like getting one or two casual games so I'd have something I could turn my mind off while I play and just relax with. I found this game on sale for $2.50 so I thought I'd give it a try, since it had beautiful art. It's kind of like a point and click adventure story where you solve a variety of puzzles, put objects together, and help fix things to save this fairy tale style magical realm from an evil darkness that was unleashed when your character's father stopped time by accident when trying to save his wife from a deadly illness and ended up freezing himself and the time lords in the process. The story is a bit of a stretch, but it feels natural within the atmosphere in the game. There are hidden object game parts, but not many, there is a good variety of puzzles most of which are pretty easy and simple. Quite a few of them require trial and error, but really easy to figure out trial and error, if that makes sense. There was only two puzzles that I felt took me a while to figure out, and only one puzzle did I use one of my skips for, but mostly because I was tired and wanted to move on so I could go to bed at the time (lol).There is a timer so if it's taken you a certain amount of time to solve the puzzle it'll allow you to skip it except for the hidden object parts which the timer allows you a hint instead. If you don't want to use a skip but are stuck, on the bottom right hand corner of the screen there's a guide button that provides a walkthrough, so you can see just one step ahead to get your gears moving. But to be honest, 99% of the game is very simple. The sound and art is beautiful and relaxing and getting objectives completed feels satisfying even if it's not that difficult, and the entire mood and atmosphere of the game is what sells it IMO. I love it, it's a good refresher from all those frustrating competitive games. The voice acting isn't very good at all but it's listenable and to be honest I expect these games to have bad voice acting. My only regret is that the voice acting isn't bad enough to be hilarious, but it's not bad enough to really hate it so I guess that's fine too haha. Overall, it took me four and a half hours to complete the main chapter before I got to the bonus chapters. So it's pretty short, but for these games longer would probably mean it outstays its welcome. I'm not sure if it's worth the full price of $15 (if I remember that correctly) but I'm always hesitant to spend money on casual style games because I'm a terrible person. But it was more than worth the $2.50 and I highly enjoyed my playthrough, definitely more solid than many other games of this genre I've played in the past.

I have no idea, why have I bought this game. I thought it would be a good adventure game, but it just does not do the job. It has got a very cheap appeal and nothing attractive.

I got this game in a bundle, and it turned out to be a great game to play.

This game's strong suit is definitely the visual - the art, both backgrounds and character design, is gorgeous and extremely well done, the effects are beautiful, and all the areas are different, uniquely, and imaginatively designed. The music and sound are also great, and the voice acting is good. The game very much succeeds in creating a beautiful and vivid fairytale-like atmosphere.

The gameplay mostly consists of puzzles and minigames, with a few very simple HO-type scenes. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by the puzzles in this game - they are very different and imaginative, not repetitive at all, and not the exact same puzzles and mechanics you see in most HOG or adventure games. While most of them are not extremely challenging, they are smart and very, very fun to play.

There is a tad bit more back-and-forth than I'd like between the great number of areas of the game, but at least it's quite obvious and logical where you should be going when you find a new item. I played in hard mode, so I don't know if this would be easier with the use of the map, but I found it was sometimes easy to forget in which of the previous ten areas the lock for the key you just found was located. But I did enjoy the variety of beautiful areas, and, again, the navigation made sense and the game did not suffer from a case of magically appearing objects and HO areas that a lot of games do. Another small criticism is that the controls of a couple of the puzzles seemed a bit fiddly and/or buggy (the rotating hourglass puzzle in particular comes to mind), but it was more of a rare, mild annoyance than a serious problem.

Gameplay in hard mode is 4-5 hours, including the bonus chapter, which is decent. There is a lot of content (areas, puzzles, etc) so the game felt very satisfying. I wish the game included achievements as well, but it's not such a big thing I guess.

The story of the game is nothing amazing, quite flimsy and cliche, but the setting and atmosphere are beautiful and interesting enough to make up for it. I have to admit that there were moments when some dialogue or story bits made me roll my eyes, most notably the part where a whole gnome village was left to languish because all the men had been kidnapped, leaving the women and children alone in the village, so there was apparently no one around to find food or repair things.

In conclusion, despite the few small flaws and flimsy story, I greatly enjoyed this game. The gorgeous art and interesting, unique puzzles more than made up for anything else.

This one was fun!

As far as hidden object games go this one was quite a pleasure to play. Recently i haven't really been feeling the long and time consuming games, yet this one is somewhere around the middle. It wasn't too long and it wasn't too short. I managed to get around 4 and a half hours of play time out of it. Including the bonus chapter at the end.

The story is decent, i particularly like the fantasy type world you stumble into. It's nothing too enthralling but it's definitely a decent play and helps it stand out slightly from all the other HOGs.
I've been playing quite a few recently and this is one of the better ones i think.

The item finding itself is a little odd in this one. It's not the usual 'list' kind of thing. It was more so shorter item-finding scenes where you are looking for ten or so outlined shapes rather then a long list of named objects. It's something a little different I guess but i found it quite odd.
It also doesn't feel like there is actually many item-finding scenes in this game. In ways i liked it, they focused a tad more on the story and i guess it's always good that the game isn't entirely dependent on that factor of the game. But i personally would have enjoyed it a little more if they were a little more frequent. As i quite like the item-finding side to HOGs.

The voicing acting, art and puzzles are all pretty standard as far as HOGs go really. As in, the voice acting is always that tad bit cheesy, the art is always quite nice and the puzzles are always fairly similar.
None the less, i enjoyed it. As these kind of games are great for few hour time killers.

When it comes to this genre of game, i think all positive reviews tend to be very similar. It's just usually the bad ones that differentiate and usually for good reason.
For a HOG to be bad they must be really bad.
*Cough* Amazing Adventures Around The World *Cough*
Excuse me.

All in all, this is another decent hidden object game for the collection, i'd definitely recommend this one.


TL;DR : Another decent HOG, pretty standard but stands out a little from the rest with it's fantasy setting.

This isn't bad, but it isn't very good either.

Pro: Pretty drawings, cute background characters, fairly interesting puzzles.

A beautifully drawn HO game that really sparkles in the aesthetics department. However, most of the puzzles are very basic with only a couple of teasers that really felt like I had to think. Still, lovely game could easily recommend to people of all ages who love beautiful fantasy art. 7/10

Just a quick question first...

Have you ever combed a giant snail?!


If I had to pick a single word for the game it would be 'CUTE'. Like extremely, very-very much so.

- The puzzles are numerous and varied, a solid mix of classics along with some fresh and interesting designs. Some are casual, some are harder than most, but each one can be skipped.
- The visuals are...It's just...well, you do have the eyes + all those screenshots, don't you?
- The voice-acting is surprisingly good for it's genre\price.
- The story is there for you. Not something too originall may be, but satisfying nontheless.
- It has the Snoopseees!..:P So much loving and effort for the simple (and optional) 'spot-them-all' mini-game? Thank you, devs!

Wow, I wasn't expecting this kind of beauty in display and quality in gameplay when I got Nearwood - a FROG, or fragmented object game - in a bundle some time ago. I was bored and looking for a "snack" game, which I'd be able to play with minimum mental capacity. Aside the story being purely lame and the ending being anticlimactic, Nearwood's been a feast within its genre.

The curtain opens up for us to meet Jane Lockwood, the only daughter of Nathan and Elizabeth Lockwood. Apparently, Jane's mother died out of a sickness and her father disappeared mysteriously just after, leaving Jane to be raised by her aunt. Growing up with many strange dreams of a magical realm, Jane finally decides to go back to the house that she lived with her parents when she was little, to learn more about her past.

There, a strange little man - either a gnome or a goblin - named Fey welcomes her back and invites her to the mysterious realm of Nearwood: a fairy realm that apparently little Jane and her parents lived in when she was younger. As a quite expected outcome, Jane seems to be the hero that Nearwood's been waiting for. Only she will be able to reveal the mystery of her past and mend the damage done to the realm!

Okay, after swimming in the sea of clichés that stands as a storyline, we should talk about the display: OMG, visuals are plain marvelous in this game!!! Beautiful effects, gorgeous backgrounds in vibrant colors and lovely character designs as if it's all just out of a fairytale book. Environment design being always unique and imaginative, Nearwood manages to set a light and magical tone for you to experience. Added with quite elaborate character designs and good voice acting, this silly magical realm is worthy for you to experience even for the sake of art only.

Nothing stands out much for the gameplay though, but we wouldn't expect anything imaginative from a HOG/FROG at this point. We know what we are getting ourselves into when we are buying a HOG: we run around in a predetermined area, collect items, solve some puzzles and call it a day by completing a cheesy story. Oh, wait: puzzles ARE imaginative and interesting, most of them being quite challenging! If you'd refuse skipping puzzles and complete the brief bonus chapter, Nearwood offers you a 4-5 hour gameplay which is quite fair.

This is a lovely game for you to kill a couple of hours, admire some lovely scenery and call it a day. Hey, if you have kids, I'd vouch for the game being kid friendly too. After your second hour and 40th snoopsee - a fluffy and mischievous creature that infests all Nearwood - you'd feel that you are 8 years old again.

Game Visual/Audio

There isn't much can be said about the game's visuals asides from that they're amazingly well done. Pretty much the same thing can be said about the game's audio. The visual and audio can be adjusted in the game's option menu.

Gameplay

There are three different game difficulty modes to choose from: Casual, Normal and Expert.

There are interactive items in the game, they're marked with a symbol, but sometimes these interactive items do require extra items before they can be interact with.

The interactive map allows the player to fast travel between each location quickly. It also indicates something of interest can be done at certain location. Please note that the map isn't given immediately when the game started. Also, the teleportation amulet automatically recharges itself after being used.

Most of the hidden object scenes consists of fragment items, placing items back. Some of them do require little or no interaction.

Most of the game's puzzles are rather easy to solve without much difficulty. For most of these puzzles there's a reset button. However, there's definitely a skip button, for all of the puzzles. These two features are only present in "Casual" game difficulty mode.

There are small creatures collectibles in the game called Snoop-Sees. They're scattered throughout the game.

Since this is a collector's edition game, there's a bonus chapter, but it can be unlocked only after the main story of the game's completed. The bonus chapter is the sequel to the main story.

There's a built-in strategy guide for the game. It can be access anytime during gameplay.

Miscellaneous

In the extra content section: Soundtracks, Concept Art, Wallpapers and Snoopedia.

[Please note that Snoopedia can't be accessed until some of its' collectibles are found.]

Final thoughts, I definitely enjoying playing this game all the way through to the end. As for the replay value I would say it's low. I would recommend this game but not at the full price.

Twenty minutes over two attempted playthroughs. That's all I can stand. Something about the visuals and gameplay is just... off. The aesthetics bother me in a powerful way that I can't put my finger on, and the actual puzzle gameplay is not that fun as they go. I apologize if my pscyhology is just causing me to mistreat the game here, but I feel compelled to put out a little bit of negative feedback - it just rubs me so hard the wrong way.

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!

Rating: 9/10 Value: $9.99

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. :)

I must admit, this is my first Hidden Object / Adventure Game I've ever played, so I really have nothing to compare my experience with it. However, reviews should never be in comparison to other Games, but purely on the enjoyment that one recieves from playing it.

The Voice Acting was well done, the Art Style and Music is just beautiful, and the Story was interesting enough to keep me intrigued. The puzzles and Hidden Objects I found were basic enough to not get stuck on, although I did have to search up the Constellation Puzzle.

My only problem I found, was I got lost a lot going from Screen to Screen. After an hour I just used the Hint Button to help me Navigate back to Area's of Interest, which eliminated my frustration of wandering around endlessly.

The Collector's Edition comes with the Soundtrack which you can Download to your PC through the Game [not sure if this was only accessible after completion], A Bonus Level to add onto the Gameplay, an extra activity through the Game to collect critters which unlock Pages in the Snoopedia, and also Desktop Wallpapers, which on my 1920x1080 Resolution weren't all that crisp.

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).

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.

One of the better Hidden Object games. Lots of content, some good puzzles, and an immersive fantasy atmosphere, which is important to get you invested.
Definitely recommended.

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

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...

I just spent the last six hours in Nearwood. The graphics were fantastic especially on my flat screen tv.

I really liked the opening flyby! Twas kinda freaky going up a waterfall and then going down a waterfall on the other side of the mountain ... got me wondering about how the water changed direction lol. I like it so much I watched it several times ... the dinosaur skeletons were a great touch. As for the game itself the graphics were great and the music fantastic.

As for the storyline I found it interesing and liked the different creatures. I've played a multitude of this type of game and have to say some of the puzzles were quite unique. It's not the best of the genre that I've played but I'd still give it a high 4++/5 ... would like to see more from the creators of Nearwood .. perhaps even a sequel (smile)

If you are looking for a true hidden object game keep looking. Yes there are hidden objects to find but you are finding shapes not really items. And what hidden object puzzles there are, are few and far between. (sorry for the cliche). On the postive side what H.O,s there are, are fair. They use no tricks like turning off the lights or giving you a time clock. And the object are usually well placed and not obscured. I played on HO game where the object was 75% covered by anohter object.

However, this is a beautiful game to look at and play. The music is good. The voice acting is better than normal and they have some nice NON-hidden object puzzles thrown into the game. In particular the last puzzle in the bonus game has, believe it or not, a boss fight. Of the puzzle variety. The main game's story is okay as long as you don't ponder its ramifications.

Bottom line, a great game to play between or during your hardcore games.
