First the bad - it's not a hard HOG. The objects are generally fairly easy to find. The hints are liberal and I never got an over-clicking penalty. Oh, and the mini-games are incredibly lame -- but there aren't that many so it doesn't really matter. Mostly, they're there to make some bonus points.
That being said, this game offered a couple of innovative changes from most HOGs that were great. One is the use of some motion HO scenes -- ie, you're in a car driving along while finding hidden objects, or following a camera pan along some scenery during some narration. Pretty cool.
The best new thing was the introduction of a library/trophy room. The library houses your achievement trophies, but you can also spend points to add artwork, furniture, lighting, etc to it. You gain points from gameplay, and can earn bonus points by collecting certain books and finding letters to spell words. Very satisfying to end the game having a look at all the trophies and a nicely decked out library -- it adds some replay value, too, if you didn't get everything the first time through.
Overall, a very fun game. Probably the only HOG I'd actually play again.
The game, steeped in jazz-age graphics and music, was a nice change from the dark, paranormal-based hidden object games I have been playing and (mostly) enjoying. I loved it. At first. I finished it, but it got old well before the end. It just wasn't very challenging, and it didn't hold my interest for long. If I-play releases a follow up based on another classic story, I hope they add variety and challenge to the beautiful graphics and music.
I enjoyed this game very much. The music is soothing and relaxing. The game is fun. There are some twists in the seek and find game such as finding letters to make 'words' from 'the book,' cleaning up a party room, typing game that includes typing words from the book, driving the car down the street, making a pot of tea, arranging flowers and so forth. The graphics are really great and they capture some great scenes and locations from the story. The game captures the time period and the story very well as the story is read at times by Nick the narrator.
The download was fast and easy and I was playing the game within minutes so there is no hassle with buying it from Amazon and putting it on your computer, just becareful what operating system you have and that the requirements match your computer.
For a relaxing game that is interesting and fun with great graphics and great music based upon a great book this one is fabulous. For the price it's not outrageously long but you can enjoy some time playing it and capturing some of the nuance from the time period and F. Scott's book. Fun!
