I love JQM games and was excited to get this one. Never been so frustrated with a game before. The screens are very dark, making it difficult to see what's in them. I had to turn my monitor brightness way up to play the game. The jewel boards move so slow that in the later boards I cannot finish them, and I always master these games quickly. Not this time. I don't know if it is incompatible with Windows Vista but it takes forever to load a screen. Most of the specials for the jewel boards are useless. The blaster and row cleaner are the best ones to use. There aren't as many areas to search as I expected. You keep going back to the same ones again and again. My kids can't play it at all. The objects are too hard to find for them and many are unfamiliar objects, things they've never heard of or seen. All in all, I wish I hadn't bought it.

A solid Time Management game with decent, though slightly dated graphics. Definitely targeted to younger audiences, but still loads of fun!

For an adult, may become quickly bored ...For new-to-hog games/younger children, maybe entertaining, even educational with city facts.

The game seemed a little easier than the previous games. I didn't seem to have to look so hard for what to do next. However, it was very enjoyable to play.

This is the first game i have bought that I have misjuged from the hour trial. The orignal art was enchanting but not enough to carry the game. The main problem for me was that the "game" of following the instructions was just interesting enough for me not to want to "waste" it by skipping but not really fun.The part I liked best was using the potions on the environment. sometimes this type of interaction is complicated and frustrating for me but it was right to my level. By the end of the game I was happy to move on.One dissapointment was that I bought this game with my granddaughter in mind but the little spitfire didn't like it that there was no female hero or villian--just in groups or objects to be collected.
