An uneven hidden object game that largely removes everything apart from the hidden object scenes (there are a handful of inventory items but they are picked up during the HOG scenes, and a couple of spot the difference puzzles).

The story is okay with a few oddities such as in the policemans office, and when you start hammering walls when the police are searching the building for you, but the story is not really going to be why you would play this (especially as being part one of a planned three episodes of which the others don't seem to exist yet).

The game also isn't very long (1-2 hours depending on how much you want to resort to the hint button probably) and like most HOGs isn't particularly replayable. Still it can be picked up pretty cheap, so that isn't necessarily

So it all comes down to the hidden object scenes. Firstly the scenes are reasonably clear and the graphics are good enough, and most of the hidden items are decently placed, so the game is playable enough, but there are a fair amounts of weak links here - there aren't many misnamed objects (the bane of HOG games), but there seemed to be a few with dodgy hit boxes, a fair amount of silly places (pumpkin, stuff silhouetted in the sky, the letter E type stuff). A major negative for me was some of the openable objects, some of which were completely nonobvious that you could interact with them (the mirror for example), where others like pillows would "open" any time you moused over them (but in other scenes pillows were immobile). There are also quite a few places where you are searching for an item that has several matches ("plant" when in a garden setting!), but only one is correct, which isn't great.

In terms of specific scenes the two screen pannable scene outside the church was an interesting idea, but I found it annoying once most of the items were found as you couldn't even be sure what you were searching for was on screen. Also it and the scene before had an annoying "wind" effect constantly obscuring the view. The UV filter bit was also an interesting variation, although all the animals looked about the same to me.

Finally we have the bonus items - this seemed a bit tacked on and very variable in difficult (marbles, coins, mice were easy, whereas knives, snails and darts were very difficult to find the last few, etc.

Overall then an okay HOG with a few flaws, with nothing exceptional about it good or bad. There are plenty of better options out there in the genre, but it is playable enough especially if you are paying less than a pound for it.

Kauft es bloss nicht. Die Geschichte könnte recht interessant sein, bloss was hilfts, wenn die Ausführung mies gemacht wurde. Das fängt bei dem üblichen Fehler an, dass man jedes Objekt im Raum mit der Maus abfahren muß, um zu sehen ob es ausgeblendet wird und sich dahinter eventuell etwas befindet, genauso wie man jede Möglichkeit wie Schränke, Schubladen usw. anklicken muß wegen der Hoffung, dass es sich öffnet. Wäre ja nicht mal so schlimm, wenn wenigstens die Grafik hilfreich wäre. Aber es ist leider High-Res Fotorealistisch. Und ich kann sagen, es macht keinen Spass...eben habe ich ein Schachbrett gesucht, das in der Tiefe des Bildes mehr aussah wie 2 Klecks in weiss und schwarz, dass die gesuchte Hand im Deckengemälde eher aussah wie ein großer weißer Klecks ganz zu schweigen.
Nochmals, kauft es nicht....Wimmelbilder gibt es bedeutend bessere.

This hidden object game is one that follows a story, but does not have many traditional adventure elements (some HOGs are more hybrids or adventure-lites, this isn't one like that outside of following a story). There were not many mini-games. The scenes are interesting along with the story. Decent music. Funky scene transitions remind me of a 70's low budget horror movie.

This is listed as "part 1" and so the story does not resolve at the end. It is also a tad shorter than some other HOGs and does not include a bonus chapter or an Unlimited Mode.

Each hidden object scene contains ten secret items (hover your cursor over the start to see what they are). You do not revisit scenes generally so if you want to find the secret items, you should find them right away.

Overall I liked the game but did find it difficult finding some items--they can be small, and some objects you are supposed to open or move to expose other items do not give a visual clue such as a cursor change.

I got this game in a bundle. I got it for around less then .25 cents. I really want to enjoy this game but a lot of things hold it back from being great. One is the resolution issue. You cannot set the resolution to the size of your monitor so everything looks slightly fuzzy. Great. Its all hidden object play and that is fine by me. However the objects that your looking for are going to be fuzzy looking and they are all mostly super small and hard to see due to the resolution bug. Do not go for the special bonus items they do nothing. They open up the game you already finished. Wow some extra.

The story and cut scene graphics are fine. The game isnt all bad just not that enjoyable. The hint button recharges farily quickly and thats a good thing. I havent finished the game yet. May post more later when I finish it.

Just finished the game. So many things wrong with this game. Later your in a grave yard. You have to click on blank plots of land to find the object you need not once but 3 to 4 times. No markings that I could have seen. Just random spots on the ground. Great.

The objects that you need to find in this game are crazy. Here are just a few of the crazy names. Flippo Brunelleschi whoever he is. A gemhorn? What? Really? It also seemed like they got lazy at the end because a lot of the objects later on are right next to each other. Also the objects you need to find are super small and there is way to much clutter inside the rooms or areas you need to look thru. The story and sound effects are well done. The hidden object portion is not well done in my opinion.

Also the game is very short even for a Hidden Object game. Took me 2 hours to finish.

I love hidden-object games, but this one is awful.

There is nothing except hidden-object scenes: no puzzles or mini-games, nothing. Just one hidden-object scene after the other. And they are not good -- there are bugs with not clicking the right pixel even though you pick the right object, and very poor quality control. Too many scenes where you need to pick an object, but there are in fact more than one "gun" or "paper" in the scene. It's not satisfying to guess which one is intended. The UI features a map, but I have no idea why. There is no reason to go back to any scene: you just go through them until the end. And it won't take long.

The story is mind-numbingly dumb, even for this simplistic genre.

And there are bugs. Had to quit the game and restart to avoid weird lighting problems.

To make things even worse (is that possible!?) it's both short and unfinished. I really hope they don't waste time on creating a sequel.
