The turtle race

[Post New]by pamvan on May 28, 10 10:15 AM
It looks like i'm not going to be able to finish the game. I cannot win the turtle race. i saw that someone had let the time run out and then found a skip option for the race. I did let time run out, but there is no skip and I still can't win it. I've done this so many times, I'm completely frustrated with it. I would have liked to finish the game. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Somebody here in forum said that you have to open the turtle puzzle and DO NOT click to start the race, just wait for the Skip to charge. Hope this helps.

Wonderful game, I love the ingenuity and originality, as well as the humor and graphics. I heard myself (and so did my spouse) laughing out loud in places or chuckling under my breath. I also like how I got to the "end" of the game (after the monkey sequence) and there were two additional chapters..nice length! This one has it all...I hope some of the developers out there can take a look at this one as a model.

Graphics =
Story =
Puzzles (quantity and difficulty) =
Game Originality =
Length =
Music =
Addictiveness =

Might want to warn some parents about some "language" towards the end of the game. Didn't bother me, but I'm not playing the game with kids. That's about the only thing I can think of other than no voice overs. I didn't really have an issue with the animal sequences like a few folks did, but I don't have a very thin skin about those sorts of things even though I'm an animal lover too. About the only ones that I didn't really like doing were SPOILER (highlight with mouse):

Having to shock the dog three times to wake him up
Having to step on the cat's tail to see the black cats


The monkey drinking the potion was too funny.

The scenes/artwork are fantastic and it's a fun game but not nearly as good a game as the first Robinson Crusoe (in my opinion) so I was a little disappointed in this one - glad I got it on sale I haven't even quite finished the game yet - got bored with it...

cherbtoo wrote:Well I have already bought it without finishing the demo. It is an IHOG with nice graphics and, even though some of the things were small like finding wasps and bees, I did find them all without using a hint. I did however use a couple of hints finding other things and it took about 30 seconds to refill in relaxed mode. Yes there is an option to play the game Timed so it should suit everyone.

Just one word of warning in the first scene when you have repaired the box do not play with it as you only get three goes and I wasted mine and so ended up having to delete that player and start again from the beginning as I could not complete the task. When I started again I still had to find the wasps and bees but the next scene had some, but not all, different objects to find so there is a bit of replayability there.


I also noted that if I quit game during a HOG scene, when I went back, it was different objects to find. I hoped that after I finished the game, when I replayed on same user it would start over and have a new set of objects to find with same story. That didn't happen. Anyone know if this concept is something that this or other HOG games offer? Maybe I just didn't do something correctly! I just loved this game and was hoping for more replayability (without same objects to find). Thanks!

I LOVED THIS GAME. I only play hidden object games and this one is one of my favorites because there are a lot of puzzles throughout - not just finding hidden objects. It also was reasonably long (compared to many of the games that I solve very quickly). Definitely worth buying

Just finished this last night. Not that hard for the most part, some objects a little dark, but sure made me smille. Humerous and fun, with great graphics and some different mini games. How did your turtle races go? I finally had to give up, I just couldn't get my fingers cooperate!

This is an exellent game--demo'd for an hour then a definite buy. Did have to swallow my pride at the very beginning, having fed the owl at least 15 rodents and gotten nowhere, logged back in an chose tutorial to get over that little bump. NIce humor, wonderful art.

This game is just plain fun. Good graphics, fun games, cute story. Sorry to see it end.
Would love to know the names of other games produced by this company.

this is the best game i have played in a long time. I am bored with HOGS, but this has plenty of intriguing mini games. and it is long. well worth the money, i hate buying a game and having last 3 hours. I commend the developers who by their names, I know are not native speakers of English but got the language right. I have to laugh however, who but Harry Potter readers are going to know what Madrogora are.

Good Job.

I finally finished this game and really appreciated the humor, including the silly little touches that were added to each scene. I laughed when I had to give the haircut to that grumpy-looking monkey. Definitely recommend this one as a mostly-straight HOG with minigames interspersed throughout. (I just wish they had more minigames, since those were my favorite part!) The only things I didn't like were shocking the dog, and the pirate dressed in drag (for some reason guys dressed as girls just is not funny to me, it's just overdone and I don't get why we're supposed to laugh at that, especially since it's not at all funny for girls to be dressed like guys). Overall, I give the game a !

I don't often laugh out loud during game play but this one had me roaring. Absolutely delightful! No spoiler here, but Cap'n Guywood's final puzzle had me in tears. And oh, I was so beautifully snookered at the end!

Great graphics, great music (Somatone again), and a mix of puzzles that never got me bored. Probably not a great deal of replay value, but puzzle games are like that once you've figured them out. And a fantastic sense of humor.

Full marks to everyone involved. For pure antic fun I think this one has set a new standard. Yarrrrr!

What a fun game -- great humor, beautiful graphics, nice balance of minigames and hidden objects. This one really stands out above the rest of the typical hidden object games. Hope to see more from this development company soon.

This was by far one of the most enjoyable games I have played. A little of this and a little of that. The puzzles not too hard, some really easy, but I did have to skip one...(My turtle kept running in circles). Graphics were crisp and almost every scene had a humorous side to it. Was happy to see the words "to be continued..." at the end. I will be watching for the next one.

Very fun IHOG! Definitely five fins up.

Nice long play, very fun theme and characters, good graphics and, yes, the music was pretty darn decent but could have used a few more songs in the mix. (And that is a very tiny quibble.)

biomix wrote:Wow! Really going against the current here, but I beta tested this game. Didn't like it then and don't like it now.
The items were really hard to find.
The music drove me around the bend.
Too much going on in the scenes.
It's just not for me.
I'm happy to see that you all enjoy it.


I agree!

I loved my first hour -- downloaded the game with my free credit and then cursed myself. lol.

The graphics are spectacular -- simply beautiful. I really enjoyed them. However, the games were annoying - perhaps it was the music or the fact that it was the same map over and over again. Or maybe it was because of the pointless "testing" of the blackspots. I don't want to give too much away of the game.

The storyline should have been more played up. It was really interesting - wished they did more with it. The "side" games were somewhat simple (once you figured out what you were supposed to do) and the timed version gave you way too much time. Not much of a challenge.

Hope that helps!!

I also did not like other moral issues in the game. I sorry they ruined the game because I buy almost every HOG game out there but, I do have my standards.

I don't get it (tho I haven't demo'd yet). Why would you be morally upset at being asked to sell the bottom of your shoe?


Funny!!!


Angelfish -- it's a game!! It's silly fun. Get outside and get some sun. You've been indoors too long! Yikes!!!

no luck with the turtles

[Post New]by pamvan on Jun 4, 10 5:11 PM
I followed Symyon's suggestion, but after several minutes, I still don't have a skip option. Maybe I'll just leave it on for a few more minutes. I really would like to finish the game. It is fun---um...except for these turtles, of course!!
