    I love this series! I purchased this edition at the BFG Labor Day Sale. Great Graphics and good gameplay. The Princess is still seeking her parents. It includes a Map which gives you a fast trip to any location you have been to before. The minis are good and not too difficult. I don't think it has many, if any, standard HOS but it does have plenty of puzzles and items to find.

    I have a problem with this game which I have not seen in the Tech Forum so it is probably due to something in my personal setup. Everything loads exceedingly slow. When I click on a puzzle or the next location I have a wait of as much as 10 secs. This is tiresome and I would not have purchased if I did not love the series so much. It is very annoying and I can only play maybe 20 min. or so before I have to take a break. But, I am addicted to this series and love the game despite the "lag".

    Brib, you should send an e-mail to CS. I don't know what would be causing your trouble, although restarting your computer and opening ONLY the game might help. Wish I could be of more help!

    CS isn't what it used to be and I have found it difficult to get any useful suggestions from them lately. They always tell me to do what you can easily find in the Help articles. I do those things before ever contacting CS. yes, my software is all updated, yes, the folder exists and I am the Admin for it, etc., etc. No other game has this problem. I have recently sent two Dr. Felix reports and even a screen shot for one game and still cannot get any real help with the problems. I have even disabled everything else including the AV but have no improvement in the lag of this game (and only this game). So, I keep playing it bits at a time until I get too tired of waiting for loads. Without the Map which gives "fast" access to locations I don't think I could stand to play at all. Again, I have not seen this problem in the Tech thread of the Forum.

    Beautiful Of Course, But No Longer A True HOPA

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
     

    Yes, this latest in the Awakening series is all you could ask for in visuals, music and originality. Something I’ve not mentioned before in my reviews of other games in this series – there is always a large number of original and creative variations of both hidden object games and puzzles. And this is true in particular of Skyward Castle. But the emphasis has finally shifted so far away from common HOs that it’s no longer a game I would recommend to HO fans. This is a puzzle adventure.

    It is also very difficult to play. The puzzles and mini-games have become so hard there were some I had to skip simply because I couldn’t understand the instructions. In fact, I skipped more than I completed. That detracts greatly from my enjoyment of the game.

    So, while again this is oh so much more than its predecessors, I actually prefer the earlier Awakenings.

    I recommend this game!
