No one's written about Tales of Sorrow - Strawsbrough Town yet. Graphics were beautiful. Had to visit the same HOGs a few times, but that's a small complaint. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by unknitter from Let's have more like it I really enjoyed playing this game. Graphics were OK but characters were stiff. The graphics were nice and the voice overs for the most part were quite good, with distinctly drawn characters. Some may find it not challenging enough but it was relaxing and fun for me. Rated 5 out of 5 by dollyflower from An excellent game I really enjoyed this game. It feels rather unnecessary to do that kind of thing - why put a lightbulb in, or for that matter a modern paintbrush with a shiny metal frame, when most other things actually were looking quite right? There is a complete ending, no cliff hangers. Be the first to write a forum post about this game! I wanted to see how well it worked. Hints in the HO scenes worked normally, but if you needed direction, the hint button brought up a how-to manual to get you through the scene. If you get stuck or miss something, the hint button, when not being used to find a hidden object, will lay out what you must do in the current section.

I don't understand why some reviews say it seems like a first effort. Diddn't like the end bc the witch had no interaction with Albert. Overall I enjoyed the game. I find it annoying when I have a huge inventory that I have to scroll through - There was some moving around but it was logical. I do agree with another reviewer, however, that there were some disconnects in the nomenclature of hidden objects. My Pros: - Very nice artwork that fitted the storyline - Good voice-overs, interesting characters - Great hint system that functioned as a strategy guide and a mere hint in the HOS - Inventory items were generally used quickly. To cap off on the good side, I found myself engrossed in the story. Definitely original storyline, good graphics and music. The hint button for HO's showed you the object, what it looks like and about where it is located that's not saying you can see them all the time. I'm afraid of seeing more than I want to if I get stuck. And there was no SKIP button. Do you have an issue with your game? But the mini-games were ok, some original as well.

Stunning details and captivating story. Rated 5 out of 5 by dollyflower from An excellent game I really enjoyed this game. The story line is good, with better than average voice-overs. Short play time. I would have given Cytos Puzzle Adventure 4 stars due to some flaws, but I am surprised that it has only rated 3 and believe it deserves a boost in ratings. Magic Seeds Thank you for writing a post! The puzzles range from fantastic to mediocre. And the storyline was actually quite original. Click here to go to our help pages or to contact our Customer Support team instead. There are a couple of small thing's though one: need more areas and two the hidden object part seem more childlike compared to the game itself. I think this game should be rated higher. At first this bothered me, but in the end it was really OK. Highly recommend for anyone who likes to enjoy a stress free game.

Good graphics easy to identify the list items. If you get stuck or miss something, the hint button, when not being used to find a hidden object, will lay out what you must do in the current section. Those, I liked. I would have given it 4 stars due to some flaws, but I am surprised that it has only rated 3 and believe it deserves a boost in ratings. Also, there is a map but it is not interactive. Can't wait for another game from these people! Hints in the HO scenes worked normally, but if you needed direction, the hint button brought up a how-to manual to get you through the scene. The flaws are a widescreen function that doesn't work, and some HOS where the objects are impossible to find. The hint button for HO's showed you the object, what it looks like and about where it is located that's not saying you can see them all the time. The first few banana bears are easy enough to topple over, but the bear parade rolls by faster and faster, and towards the 7th and 8th bear it - at least on my computer - gets nigh on impossible to hit your target. The characters were rich and I couldn't wait to see how it would end. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by elenaramelb from Just the way I like it This game has an engaging story, it may have been done before, but it is told with great characters, good graphics and voice over, making it endearing and refreshing. Perform well. Definitely original storyline, good graphics and music. The story part of the game was pretty predicatable but the HO part was very enjoyable.

Diddn't like Spyde Solitaire end bc the witch had no interaction with Albert.

In fact you can't even predict which bear that will come next, since the order of the bears you're not allowed to hit those adorned with other fruits, then you have to start over from bear one is totally random.

I'm not sure I like this way. Date published: So give it a good try and you will beat it. So many of the HOG adventure games I play have a cliff hanger ending, but I was happy to find this one had a satisfying ending with no unanswered questions. I wish I could say that about other games. I found myself clicking help a lot because what I was supposed to do would have taken a magician to figure out. It tells you what you need to know. I didn't mind it as much in this game as I do in others - Some hidden objects were a little too well blended and hard to see - Swap-the-tile puzzles that rotated and moved were just plain weird. One final gripe is the minigame in the carnival, where you're supposed to knock down banana decorated teddy bears with a hammer contraption. There are a couple of small thing's though one: need more areas and two the hidden object part seem more childlike compared to the game itself. Voice overs were excellent. Another flaw is that it is too short, but in a way it leaves you wanting more, rather than being bored and looking forward to it ending, like a lot of games lately. I couldn't make sense of them and gave up.
