A Lot To Like About King Arthur
February 19, 2012

Interesting storyline, told by Merlin, of how King Arthur came to be. This HOG/Puzzle game is not hard, challenging with some of the smaller items. The graphics are beautiful and you go from place to place on an ancient map. The music is soft and not annoying as a background. For the challenging HOG scenes use your spells (hints by another name). The hint system is an interesting part of the game - you earn hints & recharge them by collecting the different types of runes as per the rune menu. Merlin does speak slowly and softly but I didn't find it annoying. His instructions are clear and precise. Puzzles so far are rather simple, but interesting. The most challenging puzzle is the squirrel one - you have to be very quick or just wait over the hole until the squirrel cycles round. I liked this game and it is worth buying at $3.

Comfortable HOS game.

I enjoyed this game because it is visually lovely, fairly easy (I'm tired of HOS adventure games where one has to go back & forth from one scene to another), and the story line was very enjoyable. Beautiful scenes. Full screen will be less stressful on one's eyes. Comfortable game. Totally enjoyed it.

Fun!

King Arthur--What a classic! AND a DD! This HOG/Puzzle game is not hard, challenging if your old eyes are at play though The graphics are wonderful. The music is mellow & for once no werewolves, demons, or gore. It's good versus evil. The HOG scenes can be challenging, as some things are tiny, but the interesting hint system (you earn hints & recharge for ruins) is unique. Merlin speaks like a patient old man-like a professor of folklore. Story is skippable after awhile, no click penalty unless you click fast. Puzzles so far are rather simple, but interesting. Worth it for DD, and to fill punch card, kid friendly

History Meets HOG and We Win Fun!
February 22, 2012

Seldom does a game with a historic base so deeply immerse you in the era of the story. The runes to power hints, Merlin's slow put very clear naaration, the Medieval style music and graphics all bring the tale to life. The "good" rating for graphics is due to the smallness of some of the items and that some are very similar. The hint system is unique and the basic hints don't require much rune hunting at all. Only downer is that you have to use the special hints wisely because once they're gone, you can't fill them again in that scene. But in all else the game is excellent for its type. Give it a try ye knights and ladies and you may be well rewarded by an excellent game!

I am Aurthur, King of the Brits
February 19, 2012

I played the trial version & I'm downloading the full game now. Yes, some of the objects are pretty small, but no smaller than in the early MCF games. There are 4 types of hints you can use in the game, and you just need to collect certain sets of runes to recharge them. The puzzles are easy. I enjoy King Aurthur stories and the journal keeps to the standard version of events. It is a fun & relaxing game.

Lesson in History
February 19, 2012

I liked this game from the very minute I started playing it. The voice of Merlin totally mesmerized me and kept my attention. HO's are bit challenging, but that's the fun part. You have a map and a journal. Be prepared to put on your racing mouse to collect the necklace fragments from the squirrels. Some scenes are repeated, but with different HO's.. Sword scene has a lot of look-a-likes, so keep a good eye. A good lesson in history with pleasant background music. I bought it.

Meh

The artwork on this game is really good, however some of the HO are so small, you need a magnifying glass to find them. The puzzles are too easy. The story line is interesting, however the narrating by the wizard gets annoying because he speaks so slowly. This is a good game for the 10 and under set.

My kind of game!
January 7, 2012

I love playing this game over and over. I am partial to hidden object games that aren't tough. This one is truly fun. I don't have to do a lot of thinking to move on to the next level. If I start a game that takes me place to place with no help, I loose interest, and this game keeps me peeled to the screen. It is very relaxing, and passes the time with ease. Some objects are small, but not too tough.

RUNES and HINT SYSTEM
February 19, 2012

This game starts off with 2 hidden objects scenes and NO HINTS; once you complete these 2 scenes is when the 4 hint supports kick in -- visibility (shows you where object is), drawn (as you get near the object, it's brought to the hint circle), vision (it shows you the silhouette of object and where it's at) and finally, the lightening bolt which just zaps the object from wherever it was. The runes are hint specific creations and if you use a hint within the hidden object scene, you can select those 3 specific runes (there's a rune "map" on your lower left-hand side of screen) to replenish that particular hint while STILL in THAT specific scene. I found a couple of names of hidden objects to be rather, hmm..how do I say it -- INTERESTING? You're asked twice toward the end of the game to find paprika. Okay, fine -- looking and looking for the spice and finally broke down and used a hint to find out in both scenes that paprika in the game developer's mind are 2 different colored bell peppers; huh??? In what country? A sling is actually a slingSHOT. I did NOT like the fact that you had to go to the Main Menu to get out of the game to look at the walk-through; most games, you're able to click on the "start" button that's on the keyboard to peruse the walkthrough. In having to go to the Main Menu of this game to use the walkthrough forces you to lose whatever work you'd started in that particular scene forcing you to re-do that particular area. I liked the mini-games but the instructions are rather ambiguous; they're worded so tersely that I had little idea of what actions to take to complete them. Two of them I just skipped because I honestly had NO idea as to how to accomplish the tasks. Merlin, the magician's voice was great and the music was FABULOUS -- very upbeat and medieval. I really appreciated being able to read the entire script while "Merlin" was speaking.

Short Game
February 20, 2012

Great graphics. No problem with finding smaller items in the HOG scenes. If you don't want to hear the story, just click through. No need to listen to Merlin's tale. Fun game, re-playable, just shorter than some. Earning hints with runes is a pretty neat feature. Overall, good game.
