Are you kidding me? What is going on BFG? Another atrocious game that I tried for 10 minutes and deleted.

I am dying for a good game to play, but lately there has been nothing of substance.

Others may enjoy this one, but I sure didn't.

I am beginning to wonder if we IHOG fans are being punished for something. This is the worst streak that I can remember... I think there have been 4 games I want in a 5 week period or close to it - and two of those were CEs that I am waiting to be released in SE version.

What the heck is going on???

ETA: There is a one day subscriber's sale today and ONE game I want to buy - WHAT A BUMMER!!!!!

What do you want to bet I get cyber-tarred & feathered for this post!?

Usually I try to find the good in a game or game(s) but I can't find anything good of late when it comes to the offerrings here the past few weeks. I'm losing my interest and have even reverted to my Nintendo DS to pass my leisure time! A new Professor Layton is keeping me happy -- not any games I've downloaded here, that's for sure!

The only good thing with this run of horrible games is I'm saving bunches of money!

I gave this a good demo endurance time but my overwelming impression is that the graphics were very clear but just plain UGLY.

Oh, my. Yesterday the Venus Wiliams vanity project. Today, this. Oh, my. The game is a junkpile HOG with a little pirate shooting involved on the side. The HOG scenes are fairly blurry and older eyes may have a problem. It is definitely a game for children. The characters and the plot are aimed at a young audience. But I would not purchase this game for my 7-year-old godson -- he would find it boring (it moves very slowly) and childish (he is a huge fan of Star Wars).

Yesterday some people were wondering about the lack of good games and BF's motives for have a $4.99 sale today. After seeing this game, I, too, am beginning to wonder what is going on.

You got to be kidding me. I am saving a lot of money also. This is another terrible game. I been getting up at 2am in the morning just hoping for a good game. Things are getting worse instead of better.

I think Big Fish should just give up on publishing a game every day and start paying attention to QUALITY, not QUANTITY. Can you imagine the kind of money they are losing by us downloading these horrid games and then deleting them? I would much rather have one quality game than 10 or 15 'worthless' games and I think most of you, from what I read between the lines, would agree. It's quality that matters to gamers, not quantity. It's just a waste of space and time.

For the past MONTH i've been reverting back to the total list of each genre of games. i'm working my way through adventure right now, but that is the only reason i'm still downloading games. from what others have said i expect to be disappointed with this game, so things can only get better from here.
Edit: I was wrong. it was worse. I played 6 minutes (including through one round of the invading pirates that CANT DIE) & hit delete. If i ever see a person talking like in this game i'm lible to run screaming in the opposite direction. bring back the GOOD games!

My first thought was "What nice music, I like that" ...

ing while I'm waiting ...

OK now you have picked yourselves up off the floor I will continue .


While the graphics looked reasonable I did not find some of the objects very easy to see and had to use a couple of hints which are rechargeable thankfully. The custom cursor felt strange to use ... well it did have a bee attached to it by an invisible string ... but it worked OK.

While you are finding objects (which can be hidden as I found out when I was in the attic) if the alarm sounds you have to go and defend your honey from the pirates. The only thing I will say about this part of the game is that the pirates will be bathing in honey for many years to come as they escaped with sooooooo much of mine as fast mouse movements were required to stop them. I then decided to quit the game before I lost all the honey Zuzu starved.

Sorry developers not a game for me.

I am completely dumbfounded at the crap BFG has been trying to pass off as playable games in the past few weeks. Except for "Drawn", there has been nothing of any quality whatsoever. I am usually the type who buys extra credits each month and uses them quickly. Lately, however, I have been able to save and save and save due to the ridiculously poor quality of these games...

Someone at BFG needs to do something or I (and I am sure many others from reading the recent comments) am going to jump ship and go elsewhere to spend my money.

BFG, you really need to apologize for the recent lack of any quality;

I have to agree. I have 3 credits from games bought early last month and am starting to wonder if I will ever find anything to buy - esp. since I cannot use them for CEs.

Last game I bought was Columbus - what a disappointment. Have the devs figured out that we estimate the length of games based on the first chapter? That was nice and long at 50 minutes - the rest have been 15-20.

I'd say Happy Gaming but that doesn't seem likely this week.
