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!

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.

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.

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.

- Puzzles
- Character/Adventure
- 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

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 simple & short game, eventhough it has advanced option.
Art wise was okay...
Everything is almost in your face even before you need to search for it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was decently fun. It was interesting to see Robin portryed as a woman and gether her merry men. The hidden object aspects were pretty good and having the different skills of the merry men to use to figure out the puzzles were fun. I think the best ultilization of this aspect was towards the end when you rescued Robin's husband. I wish that technique was used a lot more often. Otherwise, the only times i needed th hint system was to clean each area by finding the hidden gold. The fact that it told you when each area/screen was clear was helpful too because then it make it easier to figure out where you were meant to go next. Overall, a short but interesting experiance. Great for a quick causal afternoon.
