This game is so cute! I love trying to figure out how to collect all the stars. At first it was all I could do to get the candy in OmNom's mouth, but after a little practice, I was able to collect more stars too. You need to average about 2 stars in each round to advance to the next box. But don't worry. You can go back and try again on any level until you get enough stars to advance. It is fun to go back and play levels again. Some levels require perfect timing and these are the most difficult. I like how you can just keep trying until you get it with no penalties. My only complaint is that only one person can play at a time. It would be nice to have two login names, so more than one person could play - my daughter had to wait until I was completely done, and then reset to start the game from the beginning. Very fun, though.
The San Francisco game is 60 levels in length and offers sometimes challenging hidden object (HO) scenes (city locations/destinations) with fun mini-games in between. I especially enjoyed the information post cards for each destination and learned a lot of city history bits. Around about Level 32 or 33, the game becomes more challenging with objects placed more frequently behind other objects. Sometimes, the hidden objects in front need to be removed first before you see the HO you could not find, other times a sliver of the HO will reveal itself. The mini-games also progressively become more difficult. I did find that increasing to FULL screen game size (via Options) helped with finding HOs. There are no skip options or other ways to leave a tough task in this game, at least that I know of. You must complete what you are working on. However, this changes in the next game.
