Mixed feelings about this game. One the one hand it's well drawn with good graphics; an original story and some interesting game play including a variety of mini games. On the other hand there's some odd things like solving a door opening by hitting it with a dart and putting corn and onions in the holes which were just a bit odd and it felt like you'd collected something so the game writers had to find a purpose for it. Halfway through I think I'd forgotten the objective of this game.
There are seven chapters overall and this took about 4 hours to complete. There's lots of things to find in scenes within each chapter some of which are incredibly tiny plus need some micro adjustments with your mouse to find them in the scene. The game writers have done a good job of hiding things but I had to push the brightness of my screen well up to see some things. There's quite a bit of navigation to do and travelling around going backwards to places you've visited and the objects you need can be located anywhere in the scenes. Some things you have to build plus some are combined together to create an object you need. I'd to revert to the online walkthrough several times as I got stuck working out what was the next possible thing to do.
Overall this game style has promise however for me it was just missing something to give it that extra spark.
