Am I having major deja vu?? Haven't we already had 3 or 4 Alice in Wonderland HOGs?? Oh well, the more the merrier - if it's a good game! - let's download this bad boy and get playing...

Hi there Shadowfax,
Also remember some discussion elsewhere about this game quite some time ago.
DLing now, but can't find the WT to check the length and the screenshots didn't show any H0 scenes and I don't know how many pairs of sneakers to have ready and I don't know the solution to the puzzles and I ...
DL already finished - must be a really short game in light of the file size!!!!!!!
Cheers

the only thing i can say is i didn't get past the first hog scene before i deleted it.

when will hdo ever learn. they really need to step up and produce a little better quality game before i purchase. i was so disappointed too as i would love to have played it. i wouldn't even mind if it was a straight hog as sometimes they are relaxing but who can see the miniscule items. not me and i have a 24 inch monitor and bifocals.

i hope that someone enjoys the game though as it would have had a lot of promise.

@amj:

I appreciate you doing the "dirty work" and saving me the time and energy of downloading, launching and deleting this game.

One hidden object after another. Very hard to see some objects so I know this isn't the game for me.

I thought for sure that BFG had cleaned their attic and basement of all HdO games - I guess they found some more in the garbage bin

Well I have a 22" monitor and reading glasses from the pound shop and I didn't have too much trouble finding stuff, it's everything else in this game for me. The music is terrible, the graphics are not very good, and the puzzles? I only came across two and they were both 'jigsaws' with five (yes five!) rectangular blocks, took almost five seconds to deal with those!
Delete button at the ready.

Hi there all,
Ooh, don't tell me that I have just enabled another HdO to gain access to my computer!! Thanks also for the heads-up amj.
Now I remember where I read the info - was in an article about the games they had developed and what was still on offer!!
Must try to locate it so I know what else is in store for the future.
Cheers

Hello Back at ya DragonLadyOZ!! I didn't see that note before - duh...

Well - you are to blame DragonLady. Who was it that said to me yesterday that they were doing this May game coupon special so that they could offer more HdO games and actually sucker us into buying a couple of them? Oh my, it was YOU!

I do believe that you jinxed us!!

I have a rather good inkling as to where it was, so I hope I can find it. Something to do with a merger/takover/agreement etc.
Well, in all fairness (and in view of the fact that I have actually enabled the infection), I guess I should at least give this game a go to see if there is anything to save it from the pile.
Cheers.

Glad I learnt yesterday what an Hd0 is, otherwise would have been completly lost in "Your comments and reviews"....
Is there a thread about this 2 SE + 1 CE bought as I would like to know if that still goes on your punchcard and that you get as a favour an extra coupon as well ? I'm all messed up and don't quite get it.

Without anybody whipping me with wet noodles, may I say that I much more enjoyed "Mystery Chronicles-Betreyals of Love than "Woodo" ?

I haven't been to the bathroom yet and ,being a masochist, I'm downloading !

I secretly hoped F.A.C.E.S. would appear today........

I thought this was a rerun. There was already an Alice game that had such teeny objects I don't think anybody bought it, was one title listed in worst games made. Or, was it another adaptation of a favorite fairy tale? Thought it was an HdO too.

There is another Alice in Wonderland game listed, but that was the one so full of glitches, tech problems folks were waiting for a rebuild.

Now this one. Is it a third? The video graphics look nice, maybe a children's game, but I see lots of multiples to collect, the HOG I'm remembering was just a bad HOG.

I just got confused (what's new?) with it being a TGT if it was already offered last year and rejected. Oh well, maybe since there aren't 365 good games a year BF needs fillers. Hope just all the good ones didn't come out in April, got a bit spoiled. Now I'm ready to get my bonus freebie, guess I'll just get the 2 CEs left on my list.

Was there another fairy tale game if it wasn't Alice that was a total dog?

Puzzled, maybe you are referring to Fiction Fixers - Alice in Wonderland?
