    Relic Hunt

    I am not impressed. The cursor is a machete, and you have to click with the point of the blade... except that the blade is curved, which makes is kind of hard to know where to click at times. If you click incorrectly too many times, the blade (cursor) ricochets all over the screen for about 5 seconds - what a pain! You cannot turn off the custom cursor :(

    I always hit the Menu key to pause the game... except you can't do that in this game, or you'll lose your progress on the scene Meh If you want it to save your progress, complete the scene first!

    Grammar problems and redundancies... "More harder"?? It was OK at first, but as I progressed, I had to skip the story - just couldn't take it anymore. Better than some of the foreign language games... but if this is an entirely English-made production, they need to fire their proofreader!

    At one point there's an octopus in your way. "Find the hand grenade to kill the creature". Not hard, since there's suddenly a skeletal hand popping in and out of the ground and holding a grenade.

    Puzzles are find, and skippable if you wish. Find items sometimes by list, sometimes by outline. Find one (just one) hint on each level by clicking on a golden "M" with a small "c" on it. Good thing you don't need many hints in this game! Very messy hidden object scenes, minimal interaction.

    There is a more challenging part to the game later on, where you have to solve riddles to figure out what hidden object(s) to click on.

    Someone may enjoy this game, but after the awesome games I've been playing lately, Relic Hunt is not for me.
