I somehow missed this game the first time. I demo'd as the DD. Interesting story and pretty graphics but items are way too small for me. The diamonds were among the few things i could see and I have no interest in screen savers.

I tried it because it's the DD and I want to buy at least one of them, to support BFG's donation to breast cancer research. Looks like this won't be the one.

The items to find are entirely too small and there's no way to enlarge the scene. The animation is very pretty, but sort of annoying the way it's sort of "slow motion." Lillian and Christian's relationship seems a little too syrupy for my tastes, but I could have overlooked that if the gameplay had been appealing. Unfortunately, this just hurt my eyes. I gave up after ten minutes.

Oh I'm not alone on this one. Looked pretty, but too hard to find the objects and I got annoyed 40 minutes into the trial. Sorry!

Screensavers or wallpaper ? In the game if you collect all the diamonds in each level you can get a "Screensaver" by clicking Screensavers on the game's main menu... well I tried to get one, and it said "Screensaver Installed" but it is nowhere to be found. I have Vista Home Premium. My friend tried it also because they have Windows XP, same thing - tells her it is installed but then is nowhere to be found. Although I don't normally use screensavers, I do like putting them on for holidays - and the bats in the cavern one is ideal for halloween. Any ideas where these "Screensavers" are going ???

Usually I'm reluctant to 'pan' a game because I realize someone must have put a lot of thought and effort into creating it, and it seems mean to run their work down. But don't consider this one even at a bargain price, it's just not worth your time. Although it was a delight to finally find one that was not totally weird, dark, and spooky, it was too slow loading (and you do have to navigate between locations), the curser actually couldn't be positioned to pick up one of the inventory items no matter what I tried, and when I wanted to exit for a break the only way I could get out was with the Windows control/alternate/delete feature. Forget it, there are too many enjoyable games available to bother with a frustrating time-waster that's a struggle to play.

I got bored almost right away. I hate it when the graphics are so far away in frog and hog games. It hurts my eyes.
