    Um, Well, I Liked It! ***

    BASED ON DEMO


    IN BRIEF
    This is an interactive HOP game. Not to be confused in any way whatsoever with a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure. Once you accept that, this game is quite appealing!

    It is pretty to look at, with cartoony, slightly skewed, but bold colourful graphics. It has upbeat (and I found pleasantly comical) music, and even ambient sound for atmosphere! The dialogue is all black bar, but it’s easily skipped through and for the most part obvious.

    There is a timer! For everything. So that loses a lot of people I know, me included, because I can’t win for long at games where “time is of the essence”. Each location presents you with a timed HOP scene with a list of ingredients to find, points awarded for speed, and stars awarded for points. You must get 3 stars to open up the 2nd level of challenge in each location. I didn’t get 3 stars for any level at all.

    There is NO skip! I was in deep water here! Some of the mini-games are arcade-style speed clickers, and I can’t manage them at all. So this is not a game that I can play. But those of you with better reflexes would find it pretty simple I think. You can go on even if you fail at a mini-game, but you cannot unlock the next level within that location until you beat the game.

    As well as opening up extra levels in each location, completing locations opens up new ones as well.

    I had fun. It is refreshingly different. It might appeal to players who lean more to the Time Management style of game, but are looking for something a little unusual.

    I recommend this game!
