Thanks, goiMot! That looks really cool. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for seasonal games and hidden object games.....

This is NOT an HdO game! Please remove that from the title of the thread. Games developed by HdO are short and boring.

This game is developed by Pixelstorm and is one of the better hidden object games available. It's quite lengthy and enjoyable.

HdO is also short for Hidden Object game. Was not referring to the dev.

But HdO is a name of a developer and can be confusing. The statement above that some can be completed within an hour refers to games developed by HdO. This game is so far superior to anything developed by HdO, it's a shame that it is in anyway associated with them.

The "official" abbreviation for hidden object games is "HOG"

Well if you are really bothered by it please contact a mod to correct the title. I have no authorities to change it.

Thanks for trying. Perhaps a kindly mod will see this and make the change. The important thing is that everyone should know that this game is a quality HOG and in no way an "HdO" game

PixelStorm is one of the best developers of this type of game. They also produced Penny Dreadful: Sweeney Todd and the just released Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera for the pc/mac (one of this year's best games) I am keeping fingers crossed that they both come to the iPad).

Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow was deservedly voted the best hidden object game of 2008.
