This is a fun computer game and very similar to the I Spy books. We have I Spy Haunted Mansion CD as well and I think this one is much better. I would strongly suggest you choose this one over the the Haunted Mansion. Instead of one game as on Haunted Mansion, there are three games with this program. It is fun and I have found myself sitting up late playing it. THe graphics are neat and the sounds are clear and easy to hear. Well worth the time and money.
Enjoy.

My 8 year old grandson loves this game. The only problem is prying him away from the computer when he is playing it. He has numerous other software games (Backyard everthing), but enjoys this the most.
This game will have your child reading, reasoning through clues, and learning new words (for common things like anchor, thimble, etc.). All that and fun too.
Sometimes it takes a second pair of eyes to find an item, so you may be asked to play along. You may find your child is better than you at thinking outside the box.
The game designers were very creative. The game does not wear out as quickly as some computer games, because after all of the clues are gathered and the treasure is found, there are new games with new clues, and new ways to find a new treasure in a new location. The locations for the clues repeat (Inn, Island, Fort, etc.), but each new game is different. My grandson has played for hours on end, locating new clues, and working through the new puzzle to get to the treasure.
We also have I Spy Haunted Mansion, but I recommend this one because of its variety, rich graphics, and creative puzzles.
Note: We are running this on XP with a 2.2 gigahertz processor and 512 meg of RAM with no issues.

In the typical I Spy tradition, comes a game with great visuals, that encourages kids to develop their logic and attentiveness. The game consists of three separate riddles. Each of these requires the players to visist different locations and spy several objects. Once this challenge is compelted at each location, the player gets a piece of a map. After visiting all locations, the map is composed and givesd you more clues on where to find the treasure.
The game is really fun. My 4 year old enjoyed finding the objects and putting the maps together with very little help. The graphics are very detailed and alaive.
My only problem with this game is that it has a glitch in the sound. The voice over reading of the riddles is cut off one or two words before the end. This should not be a problem for older kids, but for a 4-5 year olds that cannot read might be a problem.

The product description is wrong, this is NOT OSX software. It's OS9 and can only be run in "Classic" environment. Any Mac purchased in the last two years, at least, does not come with OS9. You would need to have OS9 installed on your computer in addition to OSX. This will definitely affect the performance of the software and your machine in general.

I contacted the company - great_deals_software - and received a very unsatisfactory response. You'd think a company selling computer software would understand the differences between operating systems and be willing to correct the product description.

As far as the game itself, I'm sorry I have to leave 1 star, but I was unable to run it.

After playing I Spy Haunted Mansion at the Musuem of Science, my nephews and I purchased it at Amazon.com. It was a great game. But the Treasure Hunt is even better, and why....3 games. When you finish the first, you have two more to go. We love the I spy books, and even own a I spy board game. All my nieces and nephews play the PC game. Their ages are from 7-11. All have had fun with it. I've played too!! I love it. None of them have found it too easy. There are just enough complicated hidden treasures to make it the..."Auntie Lynn, can you help me find this?". I would highly recommend this PC game. I can't wait for the next!!

At age 38, I had a great time with this game...until my 12 & 6 year old children edged me out of playing! The younger child is starting to read, but not many words. This catered to her by saying the clues aloud on command. It is excellent for strengthening imagination & thinking skills, especially thinking "outside the box". The older child played for 5 straight hours going through several games consecutively. Ignore the upper age-range on this one. It's for all ages!

I bought this game for my 7 year old son who loves I Spy. I think that this is the best one yet. Not only does he play, but my 11 year old daughter likes to do it, too. When you sign in to the game, as you play, that name is displayed in the puzzles at different times. He loves to concentrate and search for all of the hidden secrets. What a great way to spend some down time on a rainy day!!!!!

I thought that this game was very absorbing. It really had my child search for the clues. The graphics were amazing. This game helps children develop their observation skills. I highly recommend it. It is my 6 year old's favorite computer game.
