Ghost Files 1: The Face of Guilt Collector's Edition
 – 

Yawn

Lots of Big Fish HO games to choose from, so I picked this newer one. Downloaded the demo and wasn't impressed from the beginning. The opening scene needs work. Moving room to room is very obscure and there's only a very small area to get out of the offices. And clues and puzzle solutions are handed to you even on advanced. Not worth buying. Moving on....

Living Legends: The Crystal Tear
 – 

Better than average HO game

Most of these Big Fish HO games are very similar even with similar story lines, but this one is a little different. Based on a twisted story of Cinderella and the glass slippers, it has some unexpected aspects. The puzzles are better in this one although some are so obvious and easy; there more multi-hidden object scenes too which is good. Overall, it entertained me for a few hours.

Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Devil in the Belfry
 – 

Kept my attention

Pretty good graphics and characters. Hidden objects were too easy even on difficult setting. Storyline kept my attention with some twists in the plot. Some of the puzzles were ridiculously easy and others I didn't understand at all. The last part of the game seemed like they rushed to finish it with not as much moving place to place required to accomplish goals. But it was worth the price of a matinee movie ticket...

Bedtime Stories: The Lost Dreams
 – 

Minimally entertaining...

For less than $1.00, I purchased it even though I was 3/4 the way finished by the end of the demo. It was a time-killer when I didn't want to do anything else. Not very complex, difficult, visually interesting, or stimulating — just minimally entertaining.

Rush for Gold: California
 – 

I don't know why but I love this game

It's my go-to veg out unplug-my-brain game. Why, I don't know. Background graphics are pretty well done like old-school G-rated comic books, but animations are choppy and crude, action is minimal, voices are annoying, and it's as repetitive las all time managment games. But for some reason, I like to play it.

Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum
 – 

Kinda fun

This is an okay/acceptable hidden object game. Kept my interest for a while. Required hints near the end because it seems like pathways were more obscure.

Committed: The Mystery at Shady Pines
 – 

Unlike any other

Now here's a Hidden Object game with a most unique story line that pull you right in like a good book, and graphics that resemble interesting grainy photographs, and even challenging mini games (don't SKIP!) that I haven't encountered before. Very clever. Bravo!

FATE
 – 

Love Fate

Loved all of the Fate games on the PC; unfortunately only the first one is on the Mac as far as I can tell. Too bad because they kept me entertained for hours. Now I'm over the first one, so where are the others in Mac version?

Torchlight
 – 

Better than Fate in some, but not all, ways

I like the story and the graphics better than Fate but miss the more valuable items in Fate. Torchlight values are low so it seems to take forever to build up cash for buying the more powerful weapons and armour. After a while, Torchlight gets a bit dull. I miss the advanced versions of Fate which Torchlight should mirror.

Awful

Just shoot me now if I have to make the guy jump old school style to get anywhere and everywhere. I wish I hadn't wasted my money buying it. The description needs to be clearer that this is that type of game. Not intuitive if you're not used to those kinds of moves.

Death Pages: Ghost Library
 – 

Fun, intriguing for a while, pretty short

Kept my interest through the levels, so it was worth buying. Game is a bit short and the ending is disappointing.

Rush for Gold: Alaska
 – 

Entertaining, addicting, challenging to get all the stars

Easy enough to learn and get one star on each level, then two. Three took a while. Finished the game over a couple of weekends. I liked the strategy concept with the time management. You're not just watering plants and picking vegetables in this game.

Battle Fleet
 – 

Way too old school

Not worth the time, trouble, money. Not into this type of game myself, not enough action, but maybe you'll like it. Reminds me of old school Battleship board game.

Fun while it lasted

Another entertaining hidden object game. Worth the few bucks. Too bad it's pretty short.
