This game has a lot in common with the other I just reviewed, Amazing Adventures: The Lost Tomb. Actually, there are quite a few Popcap games that are pretty much just pure HO scenes with little to no story. Such is Escape Rosecliff Island but I prefer this game over all the rest. I've played this a few times. I didn't REALLY need to buy it on Steam but I wanted it with my "steam HO set" and also wanted an excuse to play it again. I wouldn't say there's anything remarkable about the game. There's no story other than "escape the island". There's no scare factor - you're just searching for items that will help you leave. There's not much music to speak of. The game is just many HO scenes with puzzles here and there (jigsaw, memory tiles, match 3, and word search). There are 25 scenes that you repeatedly visit but there are so many items in each, you're always looking for something different. Find 50 locks in those 25 areas and you open up 2 Bonus Games. One is Unlimited Match 3 and the other is Unlimited Hidden Objects. Just as in The Lost Tomb, you can clear each hidden object scene completely (when you find an item, the word is crossed off and another pops up in its place). So afterwards, you're left with a thoroughly bare room. It's an extremely fun thing to do! No, this game is not for everyone. You need to be an HO fan and be in an HO mood. If you are, I definitely recommend this game.

I enjoy hidden object games, usually.

The problem with Escape Rosecliff Island is that, unlike a lot of hidden object games, there is almost no storyline. You don't get to explore an island, pick up tools along the way, find hidden object scenes and solve puzzles to advance like a lot of the popular hidden object games. You just pick a scene, find some objects, go to the next one, find some objects. Every once in a while, you break up the endless monotony with an extremely simple puzzle; such as, matching cards and word searches. After finishing the end-level puzzle (word search, match-3, etc.) you receive a tool to help you escape the island.

I tried to push through, until I realized that you start revisiting scenes. After that, I just couldn't take anymore.

Maybe, I skipped a cut scene? All I know is that I have no idea why I was on the island. The puzzles are flat and boring and I have no hope that the ending would do this game any justice.

Okay so I don't recommend it. I just want to say first this one was a tough decision. I haven't quite beaten the game at the time of this writing and I do plan to, but I know how it ends already and some key flaws here force me to say buy this in a bundle or on sale only. Good Features- Good ambient music, not distracting or annoying despite the fact it repeats over and over. The enviroments are fine. The "unlimited seek and find" mode is enjoyable to me, simply because after playing this game for a while the massive lutter in each scenario is a little infuriating. The bad-The hint system picks an object you have to find from your remaining object rather than allowing you to choose an object to use it on. The "bonus game" is surprisingly stupid. All it is is 15 levels of the crappy 'match three' game that popcap already did mutch better in bejeweled, this minigame was already a weak point in this game and to give it 15 levels on its own seems like a bad decision especially given other minigames are much more fun. Finally , this game's biggest problem is the fact that it reuses each scenario over and over needlessly. I expected this game to end at level 15. It ended at level 20. There is no reason the main "campaign" mode of this game had to be dragged out that long. For that reason, I don't recommend it. 4/10

I wish I could recommend this game, but I can't. Not even for the price of 5 dollars.

Apparently the plot states that you have been shipwrecked on Rosecliff Island, and your task is to collect items to help you escape. There is no explanation as to who the previous resident(s) of the island were, or why the island is now deserted. There is no dialogue with NPCs, no narration, nothing. The gameplay consists of you bouncing from one hidden object scene to the next, and as you finish a "level," you complete a simple "puzzle" game such as a word search or matching tiles. Upon completion of the puzzle games, you are rewarded an item to assist in your escape, such as a bucket or a stack of wood. As you progress along, you begin to see the same hidden object scenes again... and again... and again. As much as I enjoy hidden object games, even I found myself overwhelmed with mind-numbing boredom.

On the plus side, the artwork is nice, with the hidden object scenes not being overly cluttered, and the items were often cleverly hidden.

Verdict: Don't spend 5 dollars for this game unless you happen to enjoy visiting the same hidden object scenes over and over. If so, buy it if it is on sale for 90 percent off.

Bought it as part of a humble bundle, so I could decide how much I wanted to pay.
After playing through nearly the whole game I wouldn't recommend buying it for ~10€, because it get's really repetetive after a short while. There are 25 pictures you visit again and again and a lot of the objects you have to find appear on several pictures (the horshoe f. e. can be found in nearly every picture).
Still it was quite fun to play, at least most of the time. If you like hidden object games, you might give this game a try when it's on sale.
