This game is a pretty fun addition to the genre. It has some neat mechanics with the helpers' abilities that you can use to locate hidden items. However, this mechanic can also be a bit of a pain, because you have to scan the whole screen for spots to use these powers, which can turn into a pixel hunting adventure. This may only apply to the harder difficulty, I'm not sure, as that's the only one I played.

The ending isn't really satisfying, as I guess they are looking to make a follow up. In addition, they claim it has 6+ hours of gameplay, but I beat the game in 3 hours without the use of a walkthrough and did all the puzzles.

I'd recommend it if you like playing Hidden Object Games, but the fact that it can be beaten in half the time claimed was pretty frustrating.

This is another ported game from the "Big Fish collection" and an old one at that. This is a standard version not the extended one, which contains longer story line. The ending for the standard version is abrupt and feels very rushed. This is another proof how some companies are trying to generate more cash creating different versions of the same game. Why? Wouldn't be better to have a full story and create a bonus material not relevant to the story? Anyway, when porting old games to the Steam use CE versions instead to attract new players.
The game mechanics is similar to any other HO game, it has good interactive map, which helps a lot when the game becomes repetitive. Some voice acting is very annoying especially those of the helpers. And they go on and on, and you can't skip them. Some of the puzzles are too easy some are pretty illogical.
In short I would skip playing these games on Steam but would rather got the web site like Big Fish where these games are coming from. You might even get a better deal there.

When this game first came out, I just could not make myself play it, as I found the faery annoying. Saw it on sale here
on Steam, and thought, "Why Not?" Especially since I had played the first and third in this series.
The faery and the dragon didn't annoy me as much as I thought they would.
Despite what another reviewer wrote, you can click on them while they are speaking just to shut them up.
Especially when the dragon is repeating what someone just told you.
I actually did enjoy it, except for some of the HO's being difficult to find.
I like the fact that it has a jump map and you are notified when you are done in an area,
so you can just move on.
It was at times challenging, but not overly so. Puzzles are solvable without being to simple.
If your not sure what to do, there is a hint helper on top you can click on that will let you know what
to do. Otherwise, it stays out of site, for those who do not want hints.
There is a WT on the Big Fish site for when you get really stuck.
Not sure what the CE would have, as seeing I played #3 I knew how the story would end.

Loved it! Much more entertainting than part 1, look amazing and charming - atmosphere is darker, story is darker... and an unexpected ending! And: we have two "hints" now, with our beloved little fairy now comes a baby dragon! Yay! Maybe too easy. 8/10
