    Seven HO Types In One Great Adventure
    Sunny Sunny SunnySunny


    Rarely would many of us say that the HOS were a SERIOUS CHALLENGE, compared to puzzles. This game delivers several different HO types that will have to seriously searching:

    • Standard Interactive List (with silhouette option available)
    • List with 180 deg Pan
    • Multiples (Find 8 things forbidden by Mom)
    • HO Progressive Puzzle
    • Related Pairs
    • Poisoned HO
    • Deliberately Monochromatic Environment

    The HO PROGRESSIVE PUZZLE is similar to PROGRESSIVE SILHOUETTE HO, where you must find one item to get the next and so on. In this version, you get a LIST OF 4 ITEMS, some of which go to your inventory, and are needed to find the next list of 4 items. This goes on until you clear all 5 or 6 lists and get the necessary item. You have the option to SKIP and you can get a HINT without forfeiting the puzzle, and it is just a hint. (Try burning the canvas, for example).

    The POISON HO is made particularly difficult by the colouring, and the fading in and out of focus of the items. Similarly with the MONOCHROMATIC HOS are deliberately difficult.

    Although there are many HOs in this game, and they are very much MORE CHALLENGING than most, the game is also a PUZZLE ADVENTURE, with many interesting puzzles as well. A number of these are also PROGRESSIVE, taking several steps to be solved.

    EXCELLENTLY DESIGNED & PRODUCED, the GRAPHICS are first rate, crystal clear except where they are deliberately designed otherwise.

    The STORY is a bit FANCIFUL, and doesn’t hold tightly together, but at times the characters are quite funny, and the whole game is a ROLLICKING PIRATE ADVENTURE.

    I Recommend This Game!
