An aestheticly mindblowing game
by Jessica Simmonds, England - Nov 3rd 2009

This game is simply beautiful. It completely steps into a world of its own by showing hand-drawn looking characters and environments. The puzzles themselves are challenging and make you incorporate broader problem-solving skills beyond the one scene that you're playing through.

Exceedingly well thought out and definitely worth buying the full game.

Not quite there
by Jessica Simmonds, England - May 22nd 2009

I couldn't bring myself to finish the demo of this game let alone buy it. There's something not quite right about it. You can see that it's supposed to work like another Cake Mania or something along those lines but it definitely falls short for me.

Amazing Graphics
by Jessica Simmonds, England - Mar 18th 2009

I must say when I first started this game I found it quite difficult because I didn't realise you could zoom in on certain segments of the picture but when I did I was absolutley amazed at the quality of graphics used in this game. It may be another hidden object game but it is definitely more challenging than most. Absolutely worth purchasing.

Needs more work
by Jessica Simmonds, Australia - Aug 19th 2008

The graphics in this game leave a lot to be desired. Something that anyone could do with cut and paste. The gameplay isn't much better, for a hidden object game it really doesn't help if the object is actually hidden behind another object. This game needs more work.

It leaves you in two minds...
by Jessica Simmonds, Australia - Apr 3rd 2008

I decided to give this game a go because I like community type games that involve building houses or society management type stuff and after the demo hour I'm still not sure whether I want to buy it or not.

Don't get me wrong its a pretty good game to play, nothing really gripping about it but if you like this sort of game it's ok. It's main drawbacks for me though was that it took FAR too long to load. This is especially crucial when a time limit is imposed on the demo time. 6 minutes to load up and then I had to force quit because it wouldn't adjust to window view without freezing my computer.

In regards to control I think this game has a little too much digging power into my preferences. I understand that finding the name of the user is a neat trick so it can say the player name at the start but it also managed to change my background picture to the default setting so I'd like to know what other preferences it had access to.

Despite the slowness of loading and slight lag in gameplay between levels I really liked it, which is why I'm in two minds. I like the game for what it is but I don't think it has been executed well overall. I'm interested to see how everyone else felt about it.
