An awesome game that will stretch your mind to its limits

This unique game was very different from the normal Hosted Games. Instead of having choices for you to make as the main character, there are numerous riddles and puzzles for you to solve.. you will be scratching your head in frustration, but don’t worry, all the mysteries have solutions! I definitely recommend this game to anyone who enjoys brainteasers because, besides being pretty well written, except for some minor spelling errors, this game definitely delivers!

A cute, whimsical little game with terrible puns

A fun riddle-fest in which all answers are ultimately logical...

Except that the white painting seems to be nonfunctional. Try as I might, I could not see anything no matter how I tilted the screen, and had to use my sole magic bean (free answer) of the run. (Its answer is Glockenspiel.)

That aside, I really enjoyed this game and its ingenious answers. I highly recommend it to any riddle-fans.

Crazy stupid fun!

I just played the free content, but it was great fun, complete with a (partial) happy ending. Riddles are generally easy. If you’re stumped, you can use in-game hints, or your friend Google. Not your usual choose your own adventure and not a trivia game like the App Store says, but really a hoot.
