    Another Decent But Dated HOG

    This must have been more than an okay game when it was released. And clearly designed for kids. The graphics are good in a cartoonish kind of way, but the HOGs are photorealistic. The animations are fun and combine with the sound effects to create an atmosphere that’s almost overwhelming at times. There’s thunder and moaning and just plain ominous noise. All of which makes the game even sound like a kid’s game. The heroes are a pair of kids as well, and their voices are excellent.

    There is no adventure component of any sort in this game. They do manage to have a kind of story to draw the activities together, which is at least something.

    Gameplay consists of one HOG in an extremely overcrowded scene with loads of junk, much of it almost too small to see, or behind something. Today, I don’t think many would put up with it. After successful completion of each HOG, there is a very simple puzzle to do, and again the reminder that’s for kids is just how simple and easy these puzzles are – easy jigsaws, spot the difference, memory. You can skip, too, if you want. You have options on the level of difficulty, which increases recharge time. There are no scenes outside the HOGs, so no other widgets are necessary.

    There are candy canes to collect and there are 2 or more in a scene. The game keeps track  of how many of these you collect, and how many tricks you get. I haven’t been able to work out yet how you get the tricks, but I believe they are connected to the strange and sudden movement in the scene. Anyway, they are not a good thing, you lose points if you get one. Points are accumulated and there is a top score section in the main menu.

    As I say, in its day, this might well have been pretty good, but it’s not much by comparison to more modern HOGs.

    I Don't Recommend This Game!
