BASED ON COMPLETED GAME IN EXPERT (2nd of 2 modes) SUMMARY Outstanding Game with all the CE bells and whistles! Fun and engrossing start to finish. Graphics really stunning. They highlight a unique and beautiful world with lots to explore. The music was in lock-step with game play adding to the experience. Good balance of iHOS and Mini-Game. Many achievements and collectibles. Bonus Play was good - logical extension of main game and did not seem tacked-on. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME, Details Follow: STORY: As an archeologist an artifact you uncover takes you to the ailing Tree of Life that you must save. Bonus play allows the gamer to return home after mission accomplished. THEME/MOTIF: This game offers a lot of scenes for exploration and avoided simple pass through areas that had no purpose. The music was integral to atmosphere so so it stayed on. The VOs were fine if a little stiff and over dramatic. The evil queen looked as if she were wearing white table linens complete w/napkin on her head and trowel applied Cleopatra style make-up. iHOS: No junk piles, cluttered messes, or odd color schemes. Just well constructed scenes with light interaction such as "light a candle", "fix a broken plate" , or move a curtain aside. Often if a site were revisited it would be to locate numbers of things such as "12 Oars" or "Round Objects". As a nice twist, at the end of most HOS there was a riddle to solve in order to get the needed inventory item. Note in expert mode there are still sparkles for HOS which works for me because I don't like hunting and clicking for missed HOS from scene to scene. MINI-GAMES: These are plentiful ranging from mostly easy to some with challenge. Many were new to me which was great and the others I had seen before were very nicely put together. This is a great choice for people who like lots of mini-games even if they aren't that challenging. They are all fun. Instructions provided and sometimes there is a reset

I promised myself I would "wait" to buy this game later but I made the mistake of demo'ing it and was caught immediately in the story. For me this is one of those games where I have to know what will happen next. There is a map but it will not transport you. I didn't find that to be a problem because the areas are so close together that you don't wear out sneakers. There are 2 different types of collectables to find which are not hard to see. The HO's are also easy on tired eyes. I've also noticed in the "Bonus Area" you can replay puzzles, HO games, rewatch movies #although once is enough for me#, and there is one that is called "Before Amaranthine". I found the music to be soothing and now must purchase, DL and finish playing. I'm really enjoying this game. Happy Gaming to all.

Based on Demo

Three levels. Achievements. Collectables (butterflies and blimps). HOS: A little too many HOS for my taste, but they did mix it up with a written riddle at the end to collect your item. They also (so far) have a mix of standard lists, and collect x amount of items. Most have been the lists (with the riddle at the end). The storyline has been engaging. The map is not interactive. I can't comment on the length or if the standard game completes the story yet. Based on the DEMO I did puchase.

Beautiful Game with Lots of Play!

You find yourself aboard a zeppelin that crashes in a strange world inhabited by spirits. Your job is to solve the mystery of why the tree of life is endangered and by whom. Lots of twists and turns await you in this adventure! Excellent graphics, great music, good sound effects, good voiceovers, smooth scene changes all add up to a great game playing experience. The HOs are not complete until you solve the riddle at the end to secure that last item. Mini games are a little easy and somewhat familiar. There is the standard journal and map, with the map giving indications of unfinished business in what area. There are many items to collect as you move through the multiple sites ? zepplins, butterflies, owls, so you have to pay attention to detail. There are two levels of play to ensure enough challenge. What I liked about this game was the sound, the visuals, the music, and the layers of play that each scene provided. These created an intriguing world in which I wished to linger. Also, I really liked that the characters were human actors with elements of animation. This was a great addition visually, and I would have been happy with a bit more of that! Great gaming experience, and I highly recommend it!

Exciting fast-paced adventure game. Scenes flow effortlessly as you seek the Tree of Life, rescue the land from poisoning the land and escape from evil-minded smoke-like spirits. Good blend of HOAs with riddles to solved and puzzles/mini-games. Live actors and voice overs - some good; others not so much. Interesting villians. Great music and cutscenes. Expert and regular modes ? helpful map (not interactive) includes objectives (and actions if playing regular mode). Graphics and overall production values are top notch. Gameplay is straightforward and usually contained within a few scenes at a time. Achievements and collectibles.

Really fun game!

This game has it all for me - fun story, great graphics, music and ambient sounds, hard enough to make me think but not so difficult I have to hit the hint button overmuch. It isn't a dark game either in story or graphics, things are easy to see. A map, extra things to find and achievements. The few hog scenes I've run across are nice, and some have a riddle at the end to solve - love that! I finished the tutorial in 40 minutes - so it looks like it'll be a nice long game. Definite buy for me!

The best I have played in a while!

I have found myself getting quite annoyed lately with some of the HOG games coming out. They all seemed to be the same. When I downloaded this game yesterday no one had placed a review yet. I was extremely pleased to say the least! -Achievements! -Challenging Puzzles but not TOO challenging -Wonderful HO scenes with some hidden objects that pose a challenge -Something NEW!! Riddles at the end of the HO scene in which you must discover through the riddle the object that will be of use to you in your adventure! -Usable weapons, the one in the beginning-Bow and Arrows! -Two different difficulty levels -Hidden achievement objects, two to be more specific! This HOG has everything I love about these games, and MORE! I would recommended this game to anyone! Totally worth the money spent to buy it. As a matter of fact that is what I am about to do right now!

Tree of life is in danger !!!!!!!!
January 27, 2013

Played 30 minutes, regular - 2 modes, regular, expert - Integrated SG which stays on the page you leave, only shows 3 chapters in the sample - Notebook - Objectives' tab, bottom left side of your screen - Map, not interactive, shows with golden zeppelin H0 zones and area of interest - Voice overs - You have to find 40 blimps throughout the game and 14 butterflies - You get rewards for using no hint in a H0, no skip in a mini game, etc... - H0, you interact and get a riddle to find your last item - Good mini games, not over difficult - Hint is useful outside H0, shows you the way, refill quickly in regular mode - Skip button, didn't use it so I don't know how long it takes to fill - Beautiful graphics - Good music One more time a fight against evil, this time the tree of life is in danger. This looks like a very good game and is a buy for me.

Very enjoyable game!

This game is different than the usual HOG and/or adventure games. Actors are real people. The voiceovers are a little bit odd, but not a problem. HOS are interactive and once all items are found, you are given a clue to find the last item. Most things were just common sense to solve. There is a map, and collectibles. Hint button charges fast, although I didn't use it much. This is based on the demo. There didn't appear to be a lot of HOS, but they were very clear and easy to find. Not sure if I'll buy the CE, but will probably buy the SE.

What a voyage!

Oh yeah, this game has a lot going for it. A very good story, beautiful graphics, ancient ruins, beautiful relaxing music, achievements to earn, and collectables (butterflies & blimps) The story begins with a zephlin ride and evil spirits attacking the vessel trying to get the ancient artifact you just found,causing the blimp to crash into the "tree of life." The HO's require some interaction such as putting the cheese on the mousetrap. There are also scenes where you have to find 12 hammers etc. The puzzles don't seem to hard but you can skip those if desired, and you have a map that shows you where you have things to do, and a blimp indicater that stays gold until you find the blimp in that scene.I think you will become absorbed in this game. I enjoyed playing the demo and will probably buy it.
