A little too childish
on 7 November 2012
The graphics of this game are very good, it looks lovely. The game mechanics are good too, with hidden object scenes and puzzles of a decent level of difficulty. There are two things about this game that I don't like though. Firstly, most hidden object games can be very 'hand holding', giving you too much information so you can work through them too easily. As I like a challenge, I tend to play them without reading the help text that usually appears at the top of the screen when objects are clicked on. This game did not give me that choice though, as the help text appears right at the cursor when an object is clicked. Secondly, it's just a little bit too childish, too 'twee'. When I click on a tree that has fallen down, and see a message like 'Oh no, a foul disease has felled this tree, where will Mr Nutkins live now?', as an adult, that tends to grate a bit.
Apart from these two things that do not appeal to me personally, it's a decent enough game.
