You thought you’d found a plum assignment covering a beauty pageant in paradise. But then the famous Liberty Stone - which was to be worn by the pageant winner - goes missing. And you’re one of the suspects! The saga of the savvy journalist continues in Eipix’s latest game in the Off the Record series! Uncover the clues about rival families who both lay claim to the highly prized stone. Play fresh, innovative puzzles in this intriguing hidden-object puzzle adventure game.
Puzzles were rather easy and I never got hung up on what to do next, so not challenging enough in the most difficult mode. Although the puzzles are not difficult, they are still quite fun and very entertaining. I played on Easy for a relaxing game and actually found myself enjoying many of the HO scenes, with their "builds" -- not the usual find-the-tiny-object exercise found in most HO games. Had a couple of tough mini games but unique. The game grabbed me from the start. My favorite game required you to spin a roulette wheel to receive your numbers, then you had to place exactly four chips on each number whose sum totaled the number shown. Excellent teleporting Hint button, different types of HOPs, cohesive storyline, beautiful graphics. The objectives on the left side of the screen were annoying. One of the tools that I personally appreciate and use the most is the interactive transporter-type map that this development team includes in its games. The HO scenes were varied and there were morphing objects to find in these, but I enjoyed them and did not find them tedious, as I did with Danse Macabre. There was no journal although we keep asking EIPIX for one but the story wasn't too hard to follow and objectives were regularly updated. While I still do not understand the need for the dialog boxes, the voice overs were well done.
Good Game. The fourth installment of the Off the Record series is the best yet. Submit Thank you for writing a review! As is the case with many of you, I play a lot of HOPA games and look forward to the puzzles, and it seems like some of the puzzles in this game are a bit different than usual. The Mini Games are plentiful, simple games such as tracing a symbol with your mouse, and some more elaborate. This is posted after playing the entire game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimmycoo from Gorgeous Island Every scene you play through just gets better and better. This is an extremely good one, though, and I'm happy I bought it. LOL There is an interactive map which does show places where you have something to do and will transport you to any location on the map.
Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by radarsweet from Off the Record? Good Game. Loading was quick between locations and there was an in-game map marked if so chosen to transport you there. Some games have a 5 - 15 second refresh feature. It would be good for beginner to intermediate. I will be looking for more games like these in the future. I really enjoyed playing and brought several hours of fun into my day along with playing with my granddaughter it was awesome!
