The Fairy Godmother, Gwendolyn, has called on you to help prepare for the official Convention of Magic Masters being held at her home, Albian Castle, in only a few weeks time. Wizards and sorcerers of the world descend upon Albian for the magical convention of a lifetime and expect incredible accommodations. Use your Hidden Object talents to find hidden treasures and help finance the required repairs and upgrades to the castle grounds in Chronicles of Albian: The Magic Convention!
Me, not so much. It has most of the likeable touches - good artwork and graphics, a sense of humour, and a particularly fine variety of interspersed puzzles. Just to have fun. This game is nothing but loads of hidden objects that mostly have nothing to do with the game. It has good minigames that, as an extra feature, you can revisit. I prefer games that I can enjoy myself, happy games. The mini games are varied and, naturally, get progressively harder the farther you get into the game. The story is cute, but not intrusive, so you are never more than a few clicks away from the next hidden object scene. I can honestly say there is so much going on in these rooms it makes my eyes want to cross. I love to fix up buildings in the scenes and I buy all games I have to do that. But, all in all, it still had an engaging story, beautiful scenes that can also be unlocked to use as wallpaper , and some interesting puzzles. Unlock parts of the castle to move on. As I said though, if you are a hardcore HO fan, you will want to keep going.

Quite a few of the things you are looking for are impossible to find, ie: black notes on a black beam. The other commentor was right, some clicks just wouldn't select the item. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by jil1 from Gorgeous HOG Some items are very hard to find, but, it is a beautiful game, in spite of the hints you have to use. It has been a long time since I played a straight hidden object game, and I didn't realize how much i had missed it. Oddly enough, the thing that kept me playing Sparkle Unleashed to find out how much I could earn so I could add more upgrades to the castle. In building you are given options in styles and to even go back and change. I like that it replays rooms up to a certain point, then new rooms are unlocked. There were decent amount of hint options and even a fairy to help. Each type progressed in difficulty. Hint: be careful in making friends! But storyline makes it fun to play. They point to a hidden fairy for help. Just not my cup of tea. It has been a long time since I had to work so hard to find the items on my list- not because they are small or hard to make out, Mystery P.I.: The Vegas Heist because the placement was very clever.
I only play relaxed mode on all games that afford me the option so this game was relaxing yet gave me a good object hunt experience. Meet a quirky cast of magicians arriving for the convention. Going back time after time to the same rooms to try and find objects so small in order to get money to restore the castle became very tedious after the 3rd set up upgrades. For players who love pure HOG game, this one's for you. Very well done. Not just a hidden item kind of game, there are other puzzles to do so you dont get bored! After reading the reviews of how challenging the scenes were in this game, I just had to try it. It's like they used old HO objects and transposed them into another game, then gave it a gimmicky name to attract players. I prefer games that I can enjoy myself, happy games. Just not my cup of tea. I've been very generous in giving it as much as 2 stars, this was only because I didn't actually abandon it before the end of the demo time, so it must at least have earned that much! For the most part the hidden objects where not that hard to find though it seemed the last ones were the samllest or most cleverly hidden. There are many HO scenes, plus hidden gems, etc. A good game for first timers and kids though the kids may need help with some of the mini games or finding things as they may not know what the object is. The items are small as compared to todays HO.
Unless you are a hard core hidden object fan this gets tiresome after a while. Love the ability to buy upgrading of castle, original concept and provides motivation to complete. The items are very tiny and well hidden. Solve more than 80 unique puzzles throughout your adventure. It's not a heavy Syberia - Part 3 game, I enjoy missing object games and Mahjong Match a little more involved because you sell your items to help with the castle. It is the HO scenes that really drive the game play.
It has most of the likeable touches - good artwork and graphics, a sense of humour, and a particularly fine variety of interspersed puzzles. I loved the humorous chatter between scenes. Also the HO scenes were a type that I particularly dislike, 'junkyards' crammed full of irrelevant and out-of-context items, really spoils the feel of the game for me. Hint: be careful in making friends! Me, not so much. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by bep1 from bep1 Lovely game. I was shocked when the trial ended so quickly It was also a nice touch to restore the old castle. The other commentor was right, some clicks just wouldn't select the item. And I really enjoyed that you earned money by selling the things you find to remodel the castle and its grounds. A lot of the items are small and very well hidden. It has been a long time since I had to work so hard to find the items on my list- not because they are small or hard to make out, but because the placement was very clever. I have to agree with the other reviewers, for the most part. It has good minigames that, as an extra feature, you can revisit.Would like to find another game like this by whoever created this one. I have to agree with the other reviewers, for the most part. For players who love pure HOG game, this one's for you. Will you finish in time for the convention? Kids who now play hidden object games should find this one fun and parents this game may keep them focused for a while. It's hard to come up with an entirely original HOG. It's not a heavy action game, I enjoy missing object games and it's a little more involved because you sell your items to help with the castle. Solve more than 80 unique puzzles throughout your adventure. Some of the hidden objects, however, are tiny and even with my big, wide monitor I had a difficult time finding stuff. The puzzles are varied, fun and challenging! But storyline makes it fun to play. The puzzles are very easy. Half the time I couldn't find the fairy. There are wands that will replenish your hints if you can find them and a fairy lurking around in each scene that will find something for you. It really is just one HO scene after another with no other gameplay elements at all really, except a few token gestures collect gems, 'upgrade' a static picture of a castle.
