That game had potential. The story is interesting though it would have been better to add more background, like how the father was involved back then. The graphics are also nice while the soundtrack... well, it's not really boring per se but it's not really varied.
The puzzles and the hidden objects are really good. Yeah, good. When you understand them. The HOG aren't the problem here. Nope. While explaining the puzzles in riddles and poetry is a nice change, I wish that they were a little more... obvious. I'm maybe fluent in English but it doesn't mean that I can understand the puzzle.
And... I was in Casual. The easiest difficulty. Yet, I had an hard time to pass the chapter 1. I was kinda lost at what I had to do... You're kinda let on your own: How could I know that I had to put that rotten sandwich in the garbage OUTSIDE when I was expecting a creative way to use it, like attract some animals? How could I expect, in a later chapter, that when a spider was mentionned, I wasn't looking for the animal but something else?
Because I had an hard time in Chapter 1, I couldn't really enjoy the game as I would have liked. Yes, it may be interesting for hardcore casual gamers. But I'm among them. I've played a lot of casual gamings. And this one, well, even for me, it wasn't easy. And doing another playthrough because I've two profiles and that I unlocked one achievement in the second one but not in the first is preventing me to get the all achievements... when I've them on steam... no, too much.
The idea to collect candies for the backyard is a nice one. If only the candies weren't sometime so small that you can easily miss them. That's how I missed a gummy bear and couldn't buy the last item.
Honestly, I don't know if I should put "yes" or "no" as recommendation. I mean that it's not a bad game, it doesn't deserve a negative review. Yet, I can't see myself to recommend it as a must-buy.
I'm going to put a "yes" though. Because, well, like I've said, it doesn't deserve a negative review.
