A much better game than I expected
November 10, 2012

When I first started playing I thought it was going to be a standard hidden object game but I found it much more enjoyable . Some of the mini games were hard. The story line was an old and tried one time is out of control and you have to sort it out etc etc but it was done in a refreshingly new way the HO's carry the story along and you do have to use your brain although if you get stuck the hint button refreshes quickly . My only disapointment was the demo finished far too soon and Yes I will buy it

an enjoyable game

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. you have to save time, hidden objects were dark and hard at times but you can click as much as you want with out anything getting mad at you which I really like, hint button is really helpful so no map is needed. You save time and defeat evil. I don't use sound so can't rate that but otherwise I found this game time well spent.

Beautiful music & fun way to spend an evening at home
November 10, 2012

I've never felt the need to comment on music before but I thought it was beautiful and simply had to leave one. Other than the music, I liked the VO and thought they were well done. The graphics is probably the games weakest point compared to other releases we've seen from this dev but there are several other qualities and aspects that I did enjoy. Plot: You're one of several "guardians of light" in the clock tower where Elchron, the clock keeper suddenly changes for the worse. He "upsets" time and uses the gears to alter the land ("the catastrophe"#. You and the others are cast out of the tower and the 5 gears of light are scattered across the land. You must find and return the gears to the clock tower and restore order. - Widescreen option, w/ 3 lvls of play - Can chose the SIZE of the cursor; I loved this feature as I tend to groan when given a cursor the size of my fist to tool around with - Journal is usful & tracks 3 things: Clues, Gears and Echo Crystals #which you find and drag to the center to play/stop/listen#. ** I really liked the ability to continue listening to a shard after closing the journal while I cont. to explore the game. Huge plus for me - HO scenes = list of 12 items #full list up front# with white/yellow/blue name tags. Yellow = move another item to find it; Blue #unique) = Requires a "Rune of Transformation" to find. Clicking the rune transforms modern items into their older equivalent which put a nice spin on HOS and kept them interesting. Items weren't impossible to find & few were cleverly hidden without being invisible. No click penalty in casual - Puzzles were fun and of good variety; some unique - Mini games aren't too hard and I enjoyed the ones which requried you to place scenes from storyline in the correct order, so if you skipped them all, this task may take you a bit longer to complete - Game length was too short for me but overall, for a SE game it's was definitely worth using a c

Brilliant Game play

this game could keep U going for ages every twist and turn there's always something around the corner U wont be board at all

Give this a Try! It's worth it!
November 10, 2012

When I read some of the early reviews I wasn't too sure about how much I would like it...however I am so glad I gave it a try. It is challenging without being frustrating...puzzles are just the right degree of difficulty that you can figure them out without a walkthrough. I am playing advanced mode. The Graphics are nice and so is the voice over. The HO scenes are also not too hard and fairly easy to see. Just the right mix of puzzles and HO so far for me. I definitely recommend.

Hooded evils are back....
November 10, 2012

Played 20 minutes, casual - 3 modes, casual, advanced, extreme - Note book, you get crystals that you put in it to know other people thoughts - H0, you interact in two ways, regular one pushing objects to find another one and in each H0 you have a rune that changes time, brings you in the past where you find the rest of your missing objects - Hint refill quickly (casual) - Skip button which I didn't check - Mini games easy up till what I played - Music pretty loud when you're supposed to be scared.... - Good graphics - Looks like a good SE Gears of light are keeping evil spirits away, of course they get shattered all over the place and you have to find them to save your world. A bit tired of hooded demons threatening to kill me and leaving me unharmed, running to other tasks, but then, if I were killed how would I play ? !!! Will spend a punch card credit on this one.

I wise the time was longer
November 11, 2012

This game is fun to play. I did have to use the hunt button alot, but it was still fun. I wish I could extend the time on this game. I love the graphics in it. It is kind of gothic like. I would recommend the game.

Surprisingly good game for an SE
November 10, 2012

This review is based on the demo. When I read the description I didn't think I would like the game, but decided to try it anyway. I'm really glad I did. The video and VO in the beginning, and throughout the game, is well done. The storyline is intriguing, but not totally original. You are one of the Guardians of a tower containing Gears of Time that keep an evil known as the Catastrophe imprisoned. These Gears need to be renewed every so often. As the game opens something has happened and the Catastrophe is breaking free, causing elements from different times to appear. You have to find all the gears and put them back in place to prevent the Catastrophe from merging all the different time streams and destroying the world. There are 3 levels of challenge. I played on the hardest level. The mini-games were interesting, but somewhat easy. The HOS were well drawn, and interesting. Each one has a Rune of Transformation that changes items into ones from a different time. Some of the objects require actions before you can find them. Graphics and gameplay are good. The scenery is beautiful, very colorful. The music is pleasant and fits the scene. I found the story interesting despite the fact that it's similar to other storylines. Overall, I think this is a good game, especially for an SE version. I plan to buy it.

That was fun
September 13, 2013

It's challenging, but not impossible. The cut scenes not too long, the various places fairly straightforward. I was drawn into the game and happy to play along... relaxing and interesting.

Very Enlightning Game!!!
November 10, 2012

I played the demo and found this game to be very good to me. Its about The Gears of LIght that you have to find and save the clocktower which in turn saves the world. The HOS were good and different. The objects that were hidden out of the actual scene you had to find the rune and touch it and the HOS would go back in time and make it appear. Very different, nice. Its not difficult following the game. The mini games were hard but not so hard that you give up because you are so annoyed. The grafics were very good and the music was nice not annoying. This game gets a 5 star from me. If you like a game thats a little different, then this is the game for you. Happy gaming fishies.......
