  1. Fun point and click game.
    by Allie Collins, USA - Mar 13th 2016

    Great graphics and an intriguing story, make this game worth trying out. The game is short and the gameplay is average, but it still makes for a good overall game. It's worth a purchase.

  2. Wish I had never set it up!
    by Karol Larke, USA - Sep 24th 2015

    Game sounded interesting, not real familial with STEAM but I knew a little about it...set up an account, paid for the game, download started then stopped and had some ERROR. Did all of the suggestions, went back to STEAM and had to set up another account just to voice my problem and that took forever!!!!! I still didn't get anything set up and resolved so I guess I am stuck with a usless game.

  3. One of the best games I've played recently
    by Pierre D2, Switzerland - Aug 10th 2015

    I am surprised being the first one to add a review here.... maybe due to the 64 reviews that are on Steam...

    I played this game on the iPad and bought it again for the iMac. The story is interesting, the characters are very good, the English accent is fabulous, the scenes are very nicely rendered, a very beautiful game. I will play it again in a few with the same pleasure.
