Definite "NO BUY" for me. When it came to sacrificing animals (dogs and cats) I quit the game and uninstalled. I don't even like the concept. Very offensive to me.

Yes, that was a bit of a turn off wasn't it?
I agree. But for me, not enough to pass up this beautiful game.
So refreshing after what I considered a very slow month.
The graphics are crisp and clear.
Plays on my big screen.
The hint system recharges quickly which I love.
A point penalty is given if you use a hint.
No penalty for random clicking.
I played for only 30 minutes so only came across one mini/puzzle and liked it.
Not very hard in my opinion but just lovely.
Definitely a buy for me. Off to use my coupon.
I would recommend trying this game.

Hi guys, I'm on limited bandwidth at the moment and was wondering if this was timed or untimed? Is it more of an adventure HOG?

Once again the forums have saved me from an upsetting experience! This sounds absolutely horrible. I'm not even going to demo.

I lasted 9 minutes playing this game and that included playing the optional hidden object scene instead of the first puzzle. The reason why I can not play any more is because when I am searching for hidden objects

I DO NOT WANT LIGHTS OF ANY SORT FLASHING CONSTANTLY IN MY EYES.

Natural lightning does not flash as often as it does in this game so why put so much of it in when people are staring intently at the screen trying to find objects against a darkish background?

I think people like this developer are contributing to damaging our eyesight because it really did hurt my eyes. Whether this is because my eyes are now getting old or not I do not know but the fact remains it made the game unplayable for me.

Exceptional graphics and unobtrusive music. The storyline is the same "been there done that" but it is saved by some different minis, decent interactive play and appears to be of good length. A game worth a demo. Probably a buy here if for nothing else but to enjoy the very well done scenery and artistry.
NOTE: There are references to sacrificing animals in the beginning of the game, however, no scenes of such are visually depicted. All the animals are represented as alive and remain so throughout the scene.

I LOVED Zoo Mystery!!! Thanks goofy...off to buy. I also was a bit surprised about the sacrafice thing, but I'm not easily offended. I do understand why some would be.

goofyduck; You don't have to justify yourself to anyone here. I happen to read your reviews, but never comment. Some days I skip them but as a whole I appreciate the time you take to do it. Ignore the naysayers. They are clearly bored to tears.

I totally agree with GrammaKJ. I don't care how wonderful the graphics or the games are, this entire concept offends me. I certainly would not want my grandkids playing this game. I deleted it almost immediately. What a disappointment! I cannot believe that game developers cannot come up with fantastic games that are not sinister or evil.

Goofyduck,

If you are prepared to take the time and effort to review the games in this depth then I don't see why anyone should complain; it's not as if reading them is compulsory! For my own part I find them useful when it is a game which may be of interest and if it's not then I don't need to read it.
Please continue, I certainly appreciate all the reviews.

CasualGran wrote:Comment after playing 40 minutes of the demo:

I quite like this IHOG. Okay, I had to overcome some resistance when it came to that sacrificing of animals (which you don't get to see, luckily) but after that it was fun.
Clear graphics, although a little less in the first level with the rain and thunder. Friendly hintbutton too. Music I don't feel having to mute right away and, if I remember this correctly, parts of it sound like I've already heard it in the Zoo Mystery (the first 3 Days game). The minigames are fairly easy but nice to do, like assembling statues or finding words in lettersquares. You can skip them if you like, but if you do so, you'll have to do an extra HOG scene, which seems an acceptable alternative to me.
The story is interesting enough, it reminds me a bit of the Samantha Swift games which I've played all.
Good to know: it seems that the game doesn't save your progress but actually it does, only by completed level and not by moment.

Don't know about the length, but I expect it to be worth my money like the length of the first 3 Days game.

It's a buy for me. 4 out of 5.

Happy Gaming everybody!

A couple of those animals they sacrificed looked rabid to me anyhow! So maybe it was a public service!! I agree CasualGran, I played about 45 min. and thought it was quite enjoyable Definite buy.

p.s. this was a comment and not a review so please don't scalp me for posting without playing the whole game!!!.

Goofyduck, I appreciate your reviews as well. They truly help me decide whether or not to demo a game and then are often the tipping point as whether or not to purchase.

As far as the others who moan about the reviews people give, we are all entitled to our opinions and we are all entitled to express them (within the terms of use for this site, of course). Scrolling down on a page takes what...5 seconds? If that is really that important, gaming should be last on the list in daily time management.
