OK, had to get up in the middle of the night...got an all day education thing this AM..Remembered a nut bar I had at my desk...gotta have some energy to get back to sleep, don'tchaknow ...decided to check TGT and lo, and behold...guess I am first one here. Will play for a few and let ya know...I really do have to get some sleep. I missed all the annual stuff while on family leave with my dad. Have to do it today or not work this weekend....hmm, I sure wouldn't mind another weekend off free and clear...aww, guess I can't really milk it, we are always short handed as it is. So note to self...smoke ciggie and check it out, then go back to sleep .

I only played the demo for 5 minutes and will save the rest for the AM. I couldn't get it to become full screen. On first glance it seems somewhat juvenile compared to the more challenges ones lately that I have purchased but I have an open mind and it is known to change. Will let everyone know tomorrow after I finish the Demo. Have to fill up my punch card this month but this may not be the one on first glance.

Not sure this is rated very highly...interesting concept, however objectives aren't clear without using a hint, and each time you complete a scene, it takes you back to the Menu...what is up with that? I am going back to bed....of course, I will buy this...after all, I am a hog addict, but that doesn't meanI think it is great...and right now, I don't.

I had a feeling this might be a mediocre game when I read the description. First of all the catacombs of Athens would be in Greece, not Egypt. And I've never heard of any catacombs being found in Athens, the most prominent ones are in Rome and Alexandria. I know it's just a game, but gee, they can at least get the geography right.

This game is having problems loading properly on my computer. I have deleted and reloaded but it still is taking a very long time to load. From the sounds of this forum, I'm not missing anything.

This game is BROKEN! Seriously, I have had only one major problem with a game always crashing and that was the Samatha Swift third edition, this is the second game where everything seems to go wrong. You get an item from the inventory and then you cannot get back to the item list. Everytime you complete a task, you get kicked back to the menu and only 20 minutes into the game, it freezes. BFG, please dont blame computor because like I said, have had no problems with any other games (and I have them all). Sorry but this is a bust, will not even attempt to re-play my demo. Oh well better luck next time.

Samantha 3 did have a graphics glitch but they released a patch or rebuild and then it ran fine.

This one, Zeus is running great on my pc with XP SP3, it's 4 years old, just 512 Ram which is the min req. Full screen, great graphics. It would not run right on my new laptop, W7 widescreen 15.6, picture was postcard size. I changed settings to only one lower, 800x600 and it ran in windows, but the bottom words on list were cut off, had to drag the screen up to read the items then pic went back down.

It must take more resources than you have, or try adjusting your screen settings. It's a great game, at least for me and the puzzles aren't too difficult. Great replay value as the items change places when going back to same scene, and demo was even different second time I tried it on the pc.

Sorry if you can't get it to run. Yes, you do go back to Menu and Resume after some puzzles. You also get back to Items list from Inventory by clicking on the Inventory pouch icon again, Other than those quirks I'm not sorry I used a credit.

Puzzledone, I agree. Great game and very much fun to play. I really like it with the objects in different places so you can't memorize them.

I like the game overall. Yes, some of the same puzzles are virtually identical as in other games, but that is what I want in a game. I have not been able to locate an item even after getting hint(s). Where's gamma? If I can't find it, I will have to start over.

Some of the items on the Find Lists are the names of greek letters. You can google them to see what they look like, or check the Strategy Guide/Blog Walkthrough, as we usually mention the locations of those items since they are uncommon.

Good luck!

Why is it when I click hint, it does show me anything? I'm not very far, but the section I'm in is towards the begging where you get the outline of the object. Help!

I am having difficulty with one screen. I have a feather and an empty bowl in my knapsack. The feather is to make spells, which I have been unable to do, and the empty bowl I have tried to fill from the pond, but can't do that either. What do I need to do to complete this level? Does anyone know?

coolmom4 - when you click the hint it "HIGHLIGHTS" the area you need to go to.
