I don't know about this game. I played for 30 minutes but it did't grab me.

What else has this developer done? I'm getting a weird feeling of deja vu.

Hey Anubischick--your "deja vu" could be right! The developer (Casual Arts) did one awhile back called "Real Crimes--Jack The Ripper"--it had mixed reviews. They've also done "Twisted--A Haunted Carol" and "Cruise Clues--Caribbean Adventure."

Regards, elldee

Thanks elidee, that was the one I was thinking about. It would have driven me insane for a while until I remembered.

Hi there sheriff09,
Try playing on the more difficult mode if you prefer more of a challenge.
I'm sitting on the fence with this one. It seems it might be worthwhile as a SE, but so far I have not been engaged with the game in general. Can't put my finger on why, so to speak after playing most of the sample version.
Cheers

Full disclosure: Only played 28 min. At times too easy as in the hidden object, but when looking for parts for the puzzles you need to use hints to find them unless you you enjoy clicking on everything which becomes tedious very quickly. This game reminded me of movies that are made for the theaters but land up going direct to video. This game should go direct to DD and then maybe if there is nothing else to play that day.

Yep, Elldee is right and, believe it or not, Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper was a worse game than this one.

I cannot post in the review thread because the only energy I am going to devote to my opinion of this game is that I think it's awful and I was so ticked off by getting a click penalty after three clicks to explore an area in a HOPA that it hit my trash can in very short order.

I will help you out here Ozzie. You have not been engaged with the game because it is an awful game. JMHO

Oh, you're probably correct in your assessment shadowfax!! Maybe I was hoping there was more to it than I had encountered. Didn't have any problems exiting after 30 minutes. LOL
Cheers.
PS Off topic but....I thought you were catching up with some sleep!!

Well Ozzie, it turns out my mind and body just wanted a bit of a nap. I slept 2 hours and that is all she wrote, it happens to me all of the time... very frustrating. LOL

Oh, a powernap - our heroine here seems to also have them!! LOL
So, no "visions" regarding the outcome of this game if we play it through to the end??

It was mentioned in the Review thread that some players were irritated by Out of Context items in HOGs, citing a Baseball bat and ball as the offending Object. anubischick replied (and I paraphrase) that the objects were In Period as the game was invented in England. I would like to add that the game in England is called Rounders, which is the American equivalent of Softball. The bat would have been more like a stick or possibly a Cricket Bat. As most Americans would be sratching their heads, going "duh" if an item were described as a "Rounders Bat", I can understand why the Developers changed it.

I didn't respond in the Review thread as this is not a review, just extra information

Hey Shadow

Yep yep yep, when you say it's bad so far I haven't disagreed that I can recollect. I will be playing Shining Plume which is a role playing game instead. And a darn good one to boot! Happy gaming!
