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.

A lovely little hidden-object game that goes beyond the usual formula by providing side quests and an almost role-playing game mechanic. The hidden-object scenes are satisfying, the story and acting are nice, and visuals and music are charming and appropriate.

The story is a nice twist on the familiar and hokey legend of Robin Hood. Even if you're tired of this old cliché, this version may offer some surprise.

Unfortunately it's too short and too easy. It would be nice to see more games like this, but with more content and a bit more challenging!

I would totally let my sons play this game. It is a hidden object and storyline point and click game. Robin Hood is a girl in this story. She is trying to rescue her husband from prison, gather her merry men, and help others along the way. There is a fun archery tournament you can play here and there too. Played it in a few hours, but I think children would take more time as the puzzles may be slightly harder for them. It was cute.

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.

Robin's Quest is a pretty cute, easy game. Having a female protagonist is a nice change from the traditional story, and the story is pretty straightforward. On the downside, the only real challenge is finding all of the wanted posters and gold caches. Then again, on the upside you can go back and keep searching after you've won the game. All in all, it's a quick, relaxing experience. (The only reason my timestamp is over 2 hours is that I had just started the game and had to run an errand.)

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.

Takes about 4 hours to play thru once. Not worth full price, but definitely worth playing.
I like casual games - it's a hidden Objects/Point And Click game.

The good - it actually delivers a game that you actually want to play. It's a little easy, but not outrageously so. Many of the HOB/PnC games have so much counter intuitive backtracking that all you do is click Hint. This game has managed to make you want to play it and if you even try a little you should find yourself using Hint sparingly. The mini-games are also reasonable.

Overall this game was a pleasant surprise.

Clueless!

In their sometimes ridiculous err to try to change stories into stories with female protagonists this is one of the "interesting" games.

But does interesting suffice to make it a good game? Actually it has some good, though a bit dated graphics. Some nice Sounds, and a lot of things that turn this game into a HOG that can be worthwhile - if you like genderbendered protagonists that is...

Well I don't - but I won't hold it against the game. I will try to give it a neutral review.

Pro:
  • Nice voiceacting.
  • Changed story gives an interesting backdrop of an old myth and legend.
Con:
  • Dated graphics, still look nice. But - look at some of the screenshots.
  • Some things within the story and the game give the impression of superficiality, which isn't really making the game a better one.
  • Bumpy gameplay, as if the coding is flawed and therefore failing.

Recommended with strong reservations.

The game can be worthwhile if you like genderbendered heroes. Also if you like games that have so much youthful naivity and bashfulness that it will cause you to smile... But bluntly, not my type of subgenre at all...

Buy it when it's real cheap, or when you get a voucher.

That's the sort of game that you can play without worrying about any sort of commitment, in other words, it's simply a casual experience. The adventure is pretty much straight forward and it has a story which was developed over the legend of Robin Hood. As for a general insight, you don't really have to think hard to make progress on it and its puzzles are nice time killers. The gameplay is quite short and the replay value isn't all that great, so although I recommend this game for everyone, it wouldn't hurt to wait for an interesting discount.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cute game, with children as target audience. It's colourful, easy and has a happy-go-lucky feel to it.

The first person is Robin Hood, a young woman who was imprisoned with her husband. She has to escape the prison, help the town citizens with their problems (mostly getting their gold/items back from mean leaders), gather up her merry men by collecting their pardons so they are free to roam the town, free her husband and confront the evil Prince John.
There is a lot of backtracking as you unlock companions with abilities as you progress and so have to go back to use them. There is a map, but it's completely useless and does not tell which areas are completed nor can it be used for teleporting.
The areas themselves have an Area Cleared sign when it has been cleared.

The game mostly has a Robin Hood-era feel to it with items and music, but some wtf-things stood out. Yin yang and statue of Vishnu? Really?

Both the hidden object games and the other mini-games are really simple, the archery contest adds a little to the game, though this also is fairly easy. You have 5 hints available, in the form of a jar of fireflies, and should you use all of them, you can wander around collecting more fireflies to get more hints. Hints can be used both in puzzles and to figure out in which direction you need to go next.

Good game for children as a sort of introduction to both Robin Hood and HOGs. Might be worth its full price for children, but adults will want this on sale as it gets too easy.

Very fun game, a lot better than some of the other HO games I've bought from Steam. Finished in 2 hours but it was very entertaining nonetheless. Don't let the fact it's based on the legend of Robin Hood put you off, it changes enough of the story to make it fun and the gameplay and mini game elements more than make up for it. As well as the story to follow, you have collectables to find, gold caches to discover and archery competitions to win. If you are a HO fan, you'll like this one.

- Yes some Hidden Objects but not really the main point of the game

The developer who came up with the idea of Robin being a woman with then the son being named after her is nice touch.

- This is a good "quest" type game
- Easy to play
