Date published: The resolution is low so that the indistinct objects are difficult to find at first but I got used to it after a while. It's tinkly piano and violin, and I even saw my doggie nodding her head in time. Must admit though that I found them because I thought they were the flower. In my book it;s a winner! I have bought the game, but that's as far as I'm going to take you in this review. Some of the items were very obscure but I got most of them with an occasional use of the hints button - use wisely as it is slow to recharge. I'll be interested in finishing it in which case I will reply to my own review here or in reading the answers in another gamer's review. Just go with the flow! The mini puzzles without instructions are challenging, but I was able to finish at least half of them. Not that I could do it every time. Only encountered one spelling error in the trial. While it's true there are no hints about the puzzle, it's no need to go into a tizzy.

Even when I used a hint which I seldom do in games because I like the challenge , the object was difficult to see because of the murkiness of the graphics. I just started looking for something I didn't recognize and figured that was the ojbect. However, since the game makers are not native English speakers, a watch could mean a clock, and a clock could mean a watch! Graphics are dingy and dark making it difficult to see the objects. Also, sometimes you may click on an HO, and it it not removed like a cup , just keep at it! The ending is a bit of a let down but it would leave it open for a sequel. Yes the graphics are a bit ropey,its obviously not a new game and its never gonna be a MCF, but it reminds me of the games I used to play when I first started I like the part about having a word list to solve the scene. There was one umbrella, which happened to be the required object, and one parasol. Despite some shortcomings, it's a real HO game! Some of the objects that was listed also wasn't clear, which made it hard to find. Also, the HO's are not always a name list, sometimes there's a silhouette clue list. These people tend to pick up books or their Kindle when they want an actual storyline. H0's are old style but fairly well done.


Des femmes The Secret of Hildegards bio

The minigames had no direction, so not only did you need to find the solution, Sparkle Unleashed needed to find what was wanted. Ive just played hTe game for an hour, and Hilddgards a little bit hooked :-O!!! Some were obvious like the Towers of Hanoi type with the books or the marble shuffle but there were a couple that I had no clue whatsoever and had to use the skip button. Save yourself some money and don't download this one. Complete waste of time, effort and money! These people tend to pick up books or their Kindle when they want an actual storyline. The mini puzzles were OK for the most part but the one failing I saw was a total lack of directions. Your best bet is to skip them when the timer allows. The hint screen can be slow, so be judicious in its use. The story may have started out a little confusing but only for a second, it became clearer and more fun as I went along. Not that I could do it every time. If it is of good length, and Hildegarss the objects change, then it is perfect. I have nothing positive Hildegardx say The Secret of Hildegards this one.

You get to the end very abruptly without actually completing the quest, so this is basically a long teaser trailer for a 'Part II'. There are no vocals, just background music. Must admit though that I found them because I thought they were the flower. Also, the HO's are not always a name list, sometimes there's a silhouette clue list. Also, the names of some of the objects were strange. BTW, there is no such thing as "very unique. The game is shorter than I prefer. The mini puzzles were OK for the most part but the one failing I saw was a total lack of directions. I've been a Fun Pass member for a several years now. The game also flows so you don't have to figure out where to go next. I found the graphics to be clear and the objects distinguishable. While it's true there are no hints about the puzzle, it's no need to go into a tizzy. Most of them are intuitive - just click around and you will figure out the goal and the technique - if not the solution; in which case, you can just click on skip. Just the challenge of working out some of the things to find is entertainment in itself

These people tend to pick up books or their Kindle when they want an actual storyline. Some of the complaints are valid, some overblown. Save yourself some money and don't download this one. You play Secrret scene, and are rewarded with - not a necessary object, but - a minigame! The scenes are dark and dreary which I believe was designed to be spooky, but just comes across as depressing.


In fact, it is quite possible to play in windowed mode, even on a laptop, and to continue to work in a different program at the same time, switching back and forth during the pauses. I found nothing to complain about as far as the storyline goes. Not so much the HOG but the puzzles between. The hint stars are a bit quick, but Ive had no problems with clicking on objects more than once. If you would like an easy reference, recall the scene in Sound of Music where Martha says she wants a pink parasol. That is a plus for me considering I like word list hidden objects. All in all it is a fair game. Just go with the flow! There are no vocals, just background music. The art work is elaborate, and has an old-fashioned look about it. I found I was using the hint button often, not because I couldn't find the object, but because I was bored and wanted to just get through that particular scenario. I wish there were a game of just puzzles like these. While it's true there are no hints about the puzzle, it's no need to go into a tizzy. Even when I used a hint which I seldom do in games because I like the challenge , the object was difficult to see because of the murkiness of the graphics. So give it a whirl, fellow gamers!

12 thoughts on “The Secret of Hildegards

  1. I dont know why some of the 'experts' say there are no instructions The ending is abrupt. The minigames had no direction, so not only did you need to find the solution, you needed to find what was wanted. I have bought the game, but that's as far as I'm going to take you in this review.

  2. The game is shorter than I prefer. I had no trouble whatsoever spotting the bright cyan cluster of stars that resulted when the HINT button was pressed. I enjoy doing this, and it isn't easily done with some games. These people tend to pick up books or their Kindle when they want an actual storyline.

  3. The music is unobtrusive, and quite relaxing tbh I will buy this one! This adds to the atmosphere, and does not cause objects to become hard to identify.

  4. It was a nice way to relax for an evening, i wasn't hovering over my keyboard trying to find an object that was impossible to see or trying to figure out what to do next. Complete waste of time, effort and money! Some of the items were very obscure but I got most of them with an occasional use of the hints button - use wisely as it is slow to recharge. There are no interactive hidden object puzzles, and I didn't catch any characters speaking out loud. It's tinkly piano and violin, and I even saw my doggie nodding her head in time.

  5. I used my funpass membership to play, so I wasted no money. I've been a Fun Pass member for a several years now. Also, the HO's are not always a name list, sometimes there's a silhouette clue list. I feel cheated for wasting a fun ticket on it - the hour free trial seemed to be a taster of something more challenging, but it turned out that I was already half way through the game. Play in mind of elimination of possibilities for some items on your list..

  6. There was one umbrella, which happened to be the required object, and one parasol. The scenes are dark and dreary which I believe was designed to be spooky, but just comes across as depressing. It wasn't my favorite game but I finished it so that itself says something.

  7. I appreciate learning new vocabulary so the rowanberries were fine with me. Would I pay for this game, NO, but to each his own. Must admit though that I found them because I thought they were the flower. The resolution is low so that the indistinct objects are difficult to find at first but I got used to it after a while.

  8. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by pchaplin2 from Good Game if you like finding Hidden Objects I found most of the complaints of other reviewers valid, but I happen to like hidden object games and found these of average challenge. It's tinkly piano and violin, and I even saw my doggie nodding her head in time. This is a fine game. The graphics were bad.

  9. I mute the sound and skip all dialog so I can't comment on music or story lines. I'm so glad I did because I quite enjoyed the challenging game play. I reviewed it as "challenging" only because the objects are so difficult to see. Would I pay for this game, NO, but to each his own.

  10. There are some translation slips watch for clock, etc , but you can figure it out - consider it part of the challenge! The game is shorter than I prefer. Some of the objects were a little hard to locate, because it was intewinded with the background scenery. The minigames had no direction, so not only did you need to find the solution, you needed to find what was wanted. I enjoy doing this, and it isn't easily done with some games.

  11. Graphics are clean, music light and unobtrusive. Most times you can figure it out but one or two I skipped because I had no idea. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by tilmalene from Entertaining Some of the locations is a bit dark and not so easy to find the items. No bells or whistles here. Oodles of rooms and scenes to search - each followed by a thinky puzzle.

  12. Like game, but not enough info on mini games and how to proceed. The graphics were bad. Just a straight ahead Hidden Object followed each time by a standard puzzle with a light story thread. Some games waste a lot of time getting to each thing. Mini games gave no instructions so you had to guess at what you were supposed to do.
