I enjoy Hidden Object games, so considering the good price...I decided to try out Evil Pumpkin.
It wasn't very good. The graphics were nice enough, but the storyline and ending felt incomplete.
In my personal opinion, the best sort of hidden object games are the ones where you find items in your surroundings and puzzle out how to use them (as compared to going straight from one hidden object scene to another hidden object scene with no plot or puzzle in between.) This game does follow those guidelines; however, the game doesn't play out quite right.
You have to do things in a cetain order to trigger events (which isn't unusual) but if you haven't finished something..you aren't able to continue on in the game until you do. An example of this is when I found a crop of flowers that I needed to get my hands on. In my possession I had a knife, scissors, hatchet, and pruning shears (or something like that.) Yet, it told me that I was using the wrong items. About 30 minutes later, I got to a point where I needed the flowers , I searched for an agonizing amount of time because I hadn't picked up anything extra that seemed like it would work. Of course, it was one of those very items that I was supposed to be using! It had kept telling me the item was wrong so I guessed that I was just missing a crucial item I didn't see. I am not sure why I couldn't just cut the flowers and carry them around in the inventory for a bit, but that is the nature of this game.
It doesn't tell you what is required with puzzles...you just have to guess correctly. Including the ending...it was extremely frustrating and then it was just....over.
Sorry, I had a lot of hope for this game, but it just didn't hit the mark.
