I was playing the demo and made it to act 2. I'm already stuck. I'm not sure how many levels there are. I did buy it though because it has me stuck already lol

I downloaded the trial version and I would say it is worth buying. Getting a clue for finding two crowns in each scene is a real plus and I love the information about the palace and its history.

The game is fun and it had me stuck several times! Worth the price!

well, I bought and played it. Finished it w/in hours. Really really easy. BUT, the info about the palace was fun, and the graphics very clear. So, if you don't mind an easy, quick game...then YEP...worth buying!!

I found it it a very easy game, but worth buying. Like the 'hint' system as well and all the info on Buckingham Palace

I really like this and did buy it. I am stuck though. Can anyone tell me how to get the birds out of their nest. I have put up the bird feeder, filled it and used the cork screw on it, but I still get the message that the birds need more intiseing to get them out of the nest. How do I do that?

Fun, but a bit too easy. The history is interesting, though. Worth buying for anything less than normal $19.95.

I played the demo and enjoyed the game. I found items were a little too easy to find though a few were a little more difficult. I've added this to my "maybe" list for now since I still have several Octoberfest games to finish.
...Does the game get more complex beyond the one-hour demo?

I thought this was worth a game credit- Not the best out there, but enjoyable

I haven't yet decided whether or not it's worth it to buy. It was pretty easy. I thought hidden mysteries civil war was much more challenging, definitely more worth the money. Civil War and the upcoming MCF are the only two games I know for a fact I'm going to purchase. Otherwise I'm going to demo a few more and decide.
Good luck! :-)

I loved this one - great information on the history of the palace. The little challenges were also fun and getting extra hints with the crowns is a plus, will play it through again

Cesse47,

I found it amazingly simple. while the history was fabulous, good graphics, detail of the rooms was quite interesting, I found the crown hints harder to find than the objects. I think I finished it in a little over 2 hours, so to answer your question, I didn't see that it got more complex, only easier because you go back to the same rooms looking for the same objects. I don't want to taint any one, but I give it a big

Hope this helps!! Also, trust that you are having a fabulously wonderful day!! Blessings to you!!

for a game club credit of $6.99 it's worth it.

I guess several of you have finished this game by now, so I need to know, is it worth buying? I enjoy these type of games but not if I am unable to solve the puzzles. Is there a complete walkthrough for this game?

Thanks for your input

It was NOT worth buying. I played the 1 hr trial, bought the game, and finished the whole thing in another 30 min.
It was not worth buying. Wish I knew.

Not as good as Hidden Mysteries: Civil War. That was a great game. This one was boring and didn't have the imagination their others games had, C-

I liked it better than Civil War, which had too many teeny tiny items.
