I thought this game was fun and definitely worth playing.
The story is the usual "adventure around the world, looking for artifacts and solving mysteries" tripe, so there's not much to say about it. It wasn't terribly dull, but it wasn't very interesting, either.
The cut scene cartoons were cute and colorful - a nice change from the usual serious tone of some games.
The sounds were nice. Satisfying tinkly sounds when you find objects - and even different tinkles for when you find a "bonus" object versus when you find a regular object.
The HO scenes are split up between looking for objects on a list, looking for specific parts of the overall image and looking for broken up parts of objects. Usually, I dislike the "broken up parts of objects" kind of seek-and-finding, but I found it less annoying in this game. The parts were, for the most part, cleverly hidden. Some were actual "objects" in the scene, others were cleverly blended into other objects in a way that kept them from appearing too "pasted on" (which is the usual problem with "broken object" HOGs).
There are some good puzzles in here. They range from simple to amusingly complex. I enjoyed most of them.
I wouldn't say it was very challenging. There were a few spots where I had to get a hint (and I always found the hints very helpful).
Overall, I found this game to be a fun little diversion that doesn't take itself too seriously. I'd recommend it for those looking for a light-hearted HOG that won't tax them too much.
