---- how it is possible for a review to be posted on the store page (of novella length, at that) 15 minutes after the game is offered for sale. Looks like a shill to me.

There are those who track the "building" of a game on a site; I have no idea how. Once a game is "built" in it's entirety, anyone can download the game at that point, regardless of it not having been officially offered by the site, so long as they have the ability to access it. Access is provided via the release of what I assume is a file for the game...? (I'm not very tech, so I'm cloudy as to the particulars.)

Well, now I know.

I never really put much stock in the store page reviews, anyway. I much prefer reviews based on demos here in the forums.
Full game reviews are useless to me ---- seems like those are more about spoilers, tooting their own horns, and too long winded.

Thanks for the info!!

SPOILER: HERE IS A SAMPLE OF THE PUZZLES AFTER THE DEMO:

Hi Everyone,

We appreciate players' curiosity in regards to this subject, but we do ask that our players remain respectful of one another. The following from the Forum Rules is particularly important to keep in mind in this case:

Treat others with respect. Harassing, attacking, threatening, provoking, calling unwanted attention to, name-calling, insulting, or bothering other users, moderators, or Big Fish employees on the forums will not be tolerated. Play nice.


One thing I want to reassure is that no reviewer is either an employee of Big Fish Games or receives any sort of pay/kickback from Big Fish Games for a review. We welcome players' concerns, and our Moderator team will be happy to discuss the subject by PM.

Due to the nature of this thread and the comments made within it, I'm going to go ahead and lock it. Thank you for your understanding and for helping us keep the forums a respect place for all of our users.

bfgArinelle
