This is actually a very fun game. It has above average voice acting throughout. Story is cute - Robin is actually a GIRL so she can get away with more because all the guards are searching for a man. Though there are wanted adds all over for her (guess the guards are oblivious to those) so, in addition to the HO scenes, you're looking around for those wanted posters and ripping them up. :D As she recruits her merry men, she gains skills from them. Is that boulder too heavy to lift? Ask Little John to help. Need something pick pocketed? Call on Will Scarlet. And, of course, she has her own arrow abilities! There are also archery tournaments that test your mouse aiming skills. I normally dislike those kinds of things but, in this case, I found myself enjoying them and entering every competition I could. Regardless of all my good words, wait for a sale if you're interested in a purchase. It's a fairly short game, with no achievements or cards. And it's not "connected" to steam so no chatting with friends or pic taking while playing. I also found that every time I exited the game, steam would show it was still running so that was kind of a pain. But considering all the stinker HOs out there, I was pleasantly surprised by this gem. Hidden Object and Robin Hood fans should give this a try!

This is a great hidden objects game FOR CHILDREN. If you are an adult who enjoys hidden objects games, you will find no challenge in either the puzzles or the archery mini game. That aside, for children of ages 7 to 13, this is a pretty cute game. The protagonist is a female and the story is set in the Middle Ages and draws on some of the Robin Hood lore, so it has appeal for both boys and girls.

Despite being relatively short, the game offers a nice mixture of easy enough hidden object scenes, moderately challenging puzzles, good graphics and a great story concept which borders on the legend of Robin Hood.

There are many varieties of mini-games to solve within the main game, some being very easy, but others being more challenging. However, the more difficult mini-games can be skipped after a few seconds.

As an addition to the traditional HoGs, the game brings a basic questing system and special abilities that you can use to progress throughout the story. And of course, a hint system is always available to be used in case you get stuck.

Robin’s Quest is a fun game that I enjoyed playing quite a lot and I recommend it mostly for the story line and the warm feeling of the scenes.

Very straight forward in the first few mins. This is a 'hunt the object' game rather than the point and click adventure I was hoping for. Linear and full of hints. Its cheap enough but some older titles which have been reduced will have much more gameplay than this one.

This game is a Hidden Object game along with a few puzzles. The game is done well, the graphics match the story and are pleasent to the eye. The gameplay and interface seem to work pretty well no real complaints there either. However, once I got going into the game it's clear that the game is designed for children 12 and under. The HOG were pretty simple and short and the puzzles were all very easy, probably except one and that was more time consuming then hard. If you have children under 12 it is highly recommended. It's a fun diversion for adults without much pressure involved if you really need to play a Robin Hood game. My time in the game is five hours but had quite a bit of AFK time there. This is probably finishable in 2 hours, 3 tops. Give it a total thumbs up for children though and give it a rating of 7 for them.

Great Hidden object game , i was surprised by the number of different elements they added to the game , despite the hidden object tag . Game has a lot of nice gameplay and a nice story.

The only thing lacking are achivevements and steam screenshot feature, The game has some lovely visuals.

Very nice adventure/hidden object game if you are looking for a change from the usual dark and horror based hidden object games we see these days.

A fun little game with an enjoyable story that puts a twist on Robin Hood and features a female protagonist. The puzzles are easy and adventure games style elements are very straight-forward, hidden object scenes aren't that dull, although they contain objects out of the context of the story and timeframe. It also features an archery minigame, but it doesn't have any inpact on game, except for the final high score.

I really wished for this game and after finally playing though it, it left me with a positive impression, even though the overall challenge of the game could be a bit higher.

Easy even by casual adventure game standards, and the hidden object scenes are pretty short and basic. But it has some nice features compared to other hidden object games, like party members with special abilities and optional side quests. Plus you get more than one useful item from hidden object scene, instead of being sent back to the same scenes multiple times to needlessly pad the game. The voice acting and BGM aren't bad, either.

Short version: 83%
Robin’s Quest is an interesting new interpretation of the old legend, that takes the form of a rather fun and charming hidden object game, for the enjoyment of children and adults alike.

Long version:
Robin’s Quest: A Legend Born is actually one of those (surprisingly numerous) Robin Hood stories where the titular character is the heroine of the plot.
Of course this is usual for a hidden object game and fits well to the story about a brave vigilante who helps the needy and gathers her Merry Men, only to finally save her husband from the clutches of the evil Prince John. It may sound cartoonish, but it’s fun, and this is what matters.

The difficulty also points towards a kids’ game. None of the puzzles pose any real challenge, although some of the hidden object scenes can be downright devilish. Every visited place offers small secrets to explore in the form of posters and collectible gold, but these serve no real purpose other than satisfying completionists: there are no extras, not even a high score table.

Still, Robin’s Quest is a great little adventure recommended for everyone regardless of age. It’s just an enjoyable title for a low price.

As many nice touches as this game has - and there are quite a few enhancements over the typical adventure game formula - I can't quite recommend this at any but a rock-bottom price. It's just a little too short, there are too many segments in which the next step is utterly obscure (with little or no help from the hints), and the kid-friendly setting and story, while nice enough, are lacking in atmosphere and suspense. There are also very few actual puzzles, so progression and hidden object are the main challenges. Still, the gameplay has plenty of welcome flourishes for those craving something a little fresher.

This was really enjoyable as a hidden object game. The story is light-hearted and fun, and you feel like the missions and objects you're finding actually have a purpose (unlike many HOGs). At $4.99 it's a good value, but it is a pretty quick play (2-3 hrs) so maybe wait for it to go on sale. If you want a fun, relaxing game that doesn't require heavy thinking but also has an engaging story, I recommend this one.

Wow this was terrible

I'm not complaining about it being a casual game. I like both traditional "real" point and click games and casual hidden object ones like this but this one was frustrating. The character you play as is superbly annoying and handholds you through everything. I got bored a good fifteen minutes in.

The only reason I was mad enough to write a review though is that when I exited the game, I found I couldn't delete it, because it didn't properly shut down. I couldn't launch anything else because "Robin's Quest is running" when I'd quit. I couldn't relaunch the game to try to shut it down again because it was "already running". I had to shut it down in Task Manager to clear it up, because it still didn't stop "running" for a good ten minutes after I closed it.

Very attractive game. This is quite better than other in Point & Click games. I like the idea of using many types of arrows to progress story. the mini-games are fun to play and not too hard to complete it.

Recommended surely.

Short HOG. Puzzles were too easy. Some of the items on the hidden objects screens were hard to see. The game was ok. I got it on sale so I am not disappointed. I would not recommend at full price.

Pretty short for a hidden object game. I liked the music, it was very soothing and it didn't become annoying to listen. Story-wise, the usual rescue someone and save the world, and graphics wise, while not as great as other popular hidden object games, the art is still appealing. I had one slight problem though. There isn't a graphics option to change the resolution so the game was displayed in a square in the middle of my screen. Other than that, not much to say about it negatively.

This was a fun little puzzle/point and click/hidden object puzzler. Not exceedingly long, I think I finished in around 3 hours, but the voice acting is excellent, and there's a few things it does that aren't done elsewhere. The hidden object scenes are pretty crisp, and while you'll occasionally run across something that takes a little longer to find than normal, it's not because it was difficult, typically, but more that it was just getting glossed over. I had a good time playing it, and that's all I really ask out of games.

A fun, easy, high-quality HOG & AG, if you're willing to play windowed

This is one of the best AG/HOG (point & click Adventure Game / Hidden Object Game) hybrids I've played.

What I enjoyed
  • The HO scenes are well laid out, with no cheap tricks or obstructions. A bit on the easy side, but at least not frustrating.
  • As a female take on Robin Hood, you recruit the famous members of the Merry Men gang by helping them win pardons, in return for their skills as contextual abilities.
  • Great voice acting, especially on the main character Robin.
  • Art is pretty good, and the UI is polished with excellent user experience.
  • Side objectives like collectibles.
  • Optional side games (archery competition) to offer a break from the quests. Because there's quests.
  • The game helpfully marks a scene as "area clear" when you've solved all puzzles and found all secrets in it. If it hasn't, you're missing something.
What I didn't like
  • Low resolution (garbled, blurry if played fullscreen).
  • 4:3 screen. Making it fullscreen on a widescreen monitor will stretch the game horizontally rather than add black bars, distorting everything.
  • I didn't find much difference between Casual and Advanced modes of difficulty.
  • The archery side game is just one stage that's repeated in all the "competitions".
  • Having to play it windowed makes the objects in HO scenes harder to find.

All in all an excellent little HOG/adventure mix. About 4.5 hours worth of play. For the asking price, definitely recommended.
