  1. excellent point and click! a HUGE improvement from Trail of Twisters
    by alana messer, USA - Aug 3rd 2011

    this game is exactly what ive been waiting for. Its a classic-type point and click - the objectives are hinted but still challenging. not too scary (which i find a lot of the best point and clicks are too intense for me!) but still intriguing. the only reason i have a pc still is for gaming - and seems like the new generation of mac point and clicks are here! this is my favorite nancy drew - ive played them all. totally worth the money and time. ive played it twice already! also love how it doesnt hinder you to complete certain tasks out of order... and some things dont even need to be completed to solve the whole thing - so you can play differently each time and received different awards at the end based on your new game-play!

  2. Loved it!
    by Adventure Lover, USA - Mar 26th 2011

    Loved this game. The setting was beautiful and interesting and really made me crave Japanese food! The storyline is interesting and at times makes you really wonder what the conclusion will be.

    The game also includes a lot of Japanese puzzle mini games like filling out sudoku and nanograms. These can be pretty complicated and take a lot of time but I still really enjoyed them.
