Yeah, I know what you're thinking. "Isn't this a girls game?" Well... Yeah, it kinda is, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. The game has a sweet little story where you play the wife of an employee at the US embassy in Japan, and while it's nothing out of the ordinary, I still found it to be very cute - and with very well-drawn characters.
The game itself is one of those find-hidden-items-on-the-screen games and is controlled using only the mouse. While it does have some extremely well-hidden items, most of the time the game plays nice, and I found that I didn't have to use the hint-button that much. Also, the feeling of accomplishment when I, after having stared intensely at my screen for 10 minutes, FINALLY found the friggin' bird I was looking for, was indescribable.
Another thing that helps this game is the fact that you revisit most of the locations several times - and what items you have to find are randomized, which makes having a good memory an important feat as well.
