What i liked: great graphics, engaging story, challenging searches, educational aspects and a good variety of mini-games. What I HATED: the "nails on a blackboard" & fake "Oriental" voices (turned off the sound, IMMEDIATELY); having to, literally, click everywhere, for way too many minutes (we're talking "pixel clicking"), to get through a couple sections at the beginning. There are other, more minor problems, but these are the ones that truly annoyed/frustrated me. Someone in the forums said it got better; after 30 minutes of mindless clicking, I wouldn't have cared if they gave away a free car for playing it all the way to the end. It looks like it's supposed to be geared towards children; not so. The object searches will be too difficult (they aren't easy) for very young children. The educational aspects are ruined by the poor spelling, grammar and "patois." The mindless clicking required is extremely long and boring & could cause real issues for people with carpal tunnel syndrome. Overall, great looking; badly executed. Don't buy it.

This is a great game, it's so silly and fun. I have played a ton of HOG games and I am very picky about what I will buy now. I played the 60 minute demo and the time just flew by. I love how clear the graphics are, I love the characters, and I love the unusual puzzles (find the light in the dark based on a heat sensor, too fun). I also love the fact that it is a game that both I and my children can play (no, it's not too easy, it's challenging to my kids). So many of the HOG games now have a macabre theme and this is just pure fun.

This game like Anka is very deceptive at 1st glance. If you only play the trial you are not even near the full fun of this game. It is extremely long, around 10 hours for me. One of my favorite things where all the different ways to find items. Sometimes you have to put things that go together (like put the mop with the bucket. Other times the list is in riddle form. Still others you have to find what different chracters want, and some straight HOG. The puzzles are good and go with the theme of the story which at times is pretty funny. All in all do not let the 1st hour turn you off. There is a lot more to go and I really enjoyed it.

I thought this game was to childish for adults. Was very disapointed with this hog. Very annoying voices. Was way to easy. But liked the part where you could move objects.

Just couldn't get into this game. The voice of the "narrator" was Pee-Wee Herman-ish. A-noyyying!!! I didn't like clicking all over to crack the egg and by the time 30 minutes were over, I was more annoyed than having fun. The graphics were clear. I liked moving objects around. I think this will be one of those "you either hate it or love it" kind of games.

This is a funny, cute game with clear,colorful graphics! The only critique I have is that it says that penguins are from the Arctic- and they are really from Antarctica. Other than that, it is a solid HOG with mini-games. While intended for children, adults might like it too.
It is very light-hearted. Some of the objects are very well hidden, and items can be moved to see what's underneath or behind them. Most seem to be more or less in scale, and in keeping with what the scenario is. The music is bouncy and upbeat, the voicing is clear and paced for little ones.
