3.0 out of 5 stars may be aimed at kids, but not sure they'd like it... December 9, 2011
By Puzzler
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is aimed at kids, but I can't figure out what age group would be able to enjoy it more than be frustrated by it. It is a hidden object game with hidden object scenes interspersed with mini-games/puzzles. Each chapter starts off with a few screens of text, and they are not "early reader friendly". The gamer plays as Rachel, a young girl looking for her uncle in his somewhat spooky house. She is assisted by a magical toy bear and together they are looking for pieces of an artifact taken from an ancient South American temple. The artifact may have magically trapped the girl's uncle. Many of the proper nouns in the story, then, are supposed to sound typical of native pre-Columbian languages and include lots of syllables like "xtl" and the like. So the reading would be a problem for younger kids.

The hidden object scenes turned out to be a very mixed bag. Some really simple: "find the cat". And you think you've gotten a game aimed at very young kids. Other scenes are problematic because they may contain, for example, more than one hat. But if you tap repeatedly on the hat you see (the hidden object scenes are larger than the DS screen, so you have to pan from one screen to the next and you may not be aware that elsewhere in the scene is another hat) nothing happens. I'd think that could be frustrating for kids. It frustrated me! Some objects require *VERY* precise tapping. I'd think I was clicking on the "sickle", for example, but my selection wasn't accepted by the game, even after 3 or 4 attempts. Finally, I'd give up, ask for a hint, and be directed right back to the same item I had been clicking on. So I'd try repeatedly until I hit the exact pixel the game wanted. That could be frustrating.
