    A Really Tough HO Game

    December 11, 2011

    Every aspect of this game is very professional. It's imaginative, original, fascinating. The ultimate HO challenge.

    The artwork is exceptional, difficult and original. I can't believe it's possible to have such beautifully realistic HO scenes, clean and uncluttered (well, for a poor housekeeper it is), and yet be totally unable to find anything. The designers must have known what a challenge they were creating, because there's lots of (much needed) help, with a feature where a cursor hover moves obstacle like cushions out of the way, unpunished clicking, and a quick recharge on the hints. As well, if you wait long enough, unrequested hints will highlight items. Watch out for those hidden compartments and drawers though, you'll only find them when you click them.

    The transition effects are cool, and there are a lot of scenes, but there is a lot of little loads. Near invisible 'Bonus' items in each scene unlock 'extras' reached from the main menu, but I'm not sure what to do with them.

    The story is very good, but gets lost for most of the game because you are focussed so much on getting through each HO scene. There is very little adventure activity, and few puzzles. This is mostly a HO game.

    Replay: This is essential for your self esteem. Never have I used the hint feature so much or felt so out of control, and I played the 'easy' game! This is the reason I don't give it a 5. This game is not for the fainthearted. But if you enjoy a challenge, the fact that you know the story is not going to interfere with your repeatedly trying to better your performance.

    Tips: Set aside some time for this one, once you start you won't want to stop - and bring your magnifier.

    I recommend this game!
