Good game

I enjoyed this game, although it seemed a little short. Puzzles were not very challenging, but not too bad. I really like that items in your inventory were labeled. I have a hard time with games that don't tell you what you just picked up; sometimes I just can't tell what some things are. I finished the entire game and bonus game, whereas with many other games I quit because I was bored or frustrated.

Ciao, Bella! Catch an Italian Rapscallion!

The Italian Affair is an amusing game blending the usual puzzles with a story about missing museum relics from Marco Polo. There is a Transporting Map, a good Hint and Skip button, a Diary, etc. There are also Morphing Objects to collect, Fox statues to collect, and other similar items. I love the Camera, which has additional lenses which show puzzle clues. Another plus is the old tape player, for which you find audio tapes along the route. The Hidden Object scenes are usually the Shadow variety, with only a few hidden surprises. You, the detective, must decide whether the woman or the man who contacted you is telling the truth. Add some lovely Italian scenery, including museums, gondolas, and beautiful countryside, and you will find this game a pleasure to play. To those of you who have trouble, you might want to update your software to the most current version. After I did that, this game plays flawlessly! Buy it before the sale ends!

not my type of game

First, fix the sound, please. The music will turn down, but not off. And, it drives me crazy! Next, no pinch screen? Sometimes there is one, sometimes not. No consistency. As for the rest...Not the typical HO game. I prefer to find the items on a list. This game, when there IS an HO scene, is "find the item outlined." The puzzles are okay, but I skipped some because I didn't like them. Others I completed, but was rather bored with them. The final ad to buy the complete game had the usual spelling errors because no one seems to care about quality. The graphics are lovely. The usual illogical moves are here, but not much back and forth, which is good. You get a map, but I never opened it because I didn't need it. I still haven't figured out the bells, though I completed it. The biggest bell should have had the deepest sound, the smallest, the highest, but they weren't used that way in the solution. Anyway, I don't like this game, at all.
