Quote:

She said yes! Alan was finally going to marry his sweetheart, Catalina. She only had one small request before the wedding, to ask for her father’s blessing. The young couple travels to the small town in Mexico where her father is from, arriving just in time for the annual Day of the Dead celebration. But when he doesn’t meet them at the train station, that’s only the beginning of their problems. Is it just the heat, or did that book talk to you? And that guy is definitely wearing a skeleton mask, right? Cross the border between life and death in this festive Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game.

This is a special Collector's Edition release full of exclusive extras you won’t find in the standard version. As a bonus, Collector's Edition purchases count toward three stamps on your Monthly Game Club Punch Card!

Thanks, Ana. The developer, Taba Games, has also brought us Secrets of the Seas: Flying Dutchman and Ghost Towns: The Cats of Ulthar. Looking at the title of this game, I am wondering if the developers are fans of Grim Fandango, a classic adventure game. wave

Thank you for mentioning the developers, Marian. Always something I appreciate knowing when I'm not sure about a game. I enjoyed the other two you mentioned. Only played a little of the demo and am on the fence. Will wait for feedback from fellow GB's. Reviews on BFG Forum are a bit mixed. Would hate to miss out on the sale price if the game's truly CE quality. For the record, I needed to change screen res. on my PC in order to get game to fill the screen. Just wanted to mention in case others experience this issue.

This has got to be one of the best IHOGS I have ever played and I've played a lot. If you loved Grim Fandango,then you will love this game. I played for about 5 hours last night and I had to force myself to go to bed. I believe I still have a lot more game to play. The graphics are super nice. I was having a nostalgic moment last night.
By the way have you guessed that I loved Grim Fandango yet ? LOL.

I was playing the demo this morning and the hour went by before I knew it! It was very interesting and I was really enjoying it, so of course I bought it. Hope others give it a try.

Couldn't agree more with the reviewers in this forum, another great game, so good that I had to put in my 2 cents worth even though I am just past the half way point, I am too excited about this game and how much fun it is to play, I love Humour put into this one by the "Book, aka the hint system" is really great and his occasional wit made me laugh so hard I almost fell off my chair.
And as others mentioned, the reference to Grim Fandango, Wow, I wonder if they had to get permission since a lot of it is so much like Grim Fandango.
Kudos to the Developers and I really hope you make other games like this one.

Decided to pick this up at Sale price based on GB reviews. And glad I did. A fun game; dark theme but with a touch of humour. Voice overs are especially well done. And puzzle lovers will find plenty of challenge in this one.

Has anyone else gotten stuck in the HOS scene in the clocktower? I have one last thing to get - 1/2 apple. I see the apple and the knife to cut it with. But the knife won't actually cut it. I've cleaned the knife in the trough and attempted to cut the apple many times and it won't do it. I've looked at the strategy guide and I'm doing it correctly as far as I can tell but I'm stuck on this one thing, I can't skip it and the hint button only points out the knife.

Any help appreciated. I would like to continue this fun and interesting game.
