User review by cakefordinner
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.
