Time Stand Still
"There is a sweetness and peaceful quality that resonates like a wind chime in the breeze in these adventures." - Gameboomers.com
"Time Stand Still is not the first independently developed game I have played, but I think it is one of the better ones, with a lot going for it both creatively and otherwise." - Adventuregamers.com

Cool idea, good execution, though could have been better.wakenbakejake | May 25, 2011 | See all wakenbakejake's reviews »
Found this game a while back for like a quarter at a garage sale my mom took me to. Apparently this game is the third installation in a series, though I never heard of or played the first two.
One thing that I can say good about this game is it's "graphics". You may have looked at the screenshots above and said "wow, that game looks really good". Well for the most part, they do, because they are actual real-life pictures. There is some animation, but many of the scenes are real pictures, which I think is pretty cool, and looks great.
As for the navigation through these scenes, it is a basic point-and-click setup. There aren't really any timed puzzles, and they are more memory/inventory based. There may be a few frustrating points while looking for something and not being able to find it, or not being able to reach an item from your current point of view/position.
Overall, a fun game, with pretty imagery, nice to look at. Though if you get stuck, you may be in trouble, since I don't even know where to begin looking for a walkthrough for this game.
