Your Comments for Them:The Summoning

[Post New]by peglegann on Sep 26, 11 12:20 AM
If you enjoyed Hanging Gardens of Babylon, you will enjoy this.
Items really so small almost invisible and an acronym that I have not used for some time. TOTS. The Objects are There Somewhere! LOL!
I gave this demo a try from elsewhere and I will not be DL this today.
The graphics are clear. The options are
Music, sound, brightness, full screen and no option for the cursor.
You unlock extras by finding impossibly small bonus items! LOL!
Sorry, Dev's not for me

Thank you peglegann

I wasn't too sure about this one from the description, so I looked at the video, and it just seemed to be click, click, click, lol. I couldn't see any sign of puzzles (although it is supposed to have some I believe), and there wasn't any sign of frogs or ihogs either

So I don't think I will be bothering with this one either - I didn't last very long with the Hanging Gardens of Babylon for much the same reasons - TOTS (love it ) and also boring, sigh.

Ah well, maybe tomorrow, lol.

What a strange game! I played for 30 minutes, but I don't like it. No buy for me.

Sorry!

Well, I only made it about 10 min. I agree with pegleann...too small. I found it rather boring and my acronym ROM..Run of the Mill.. Sorry BF, no buy for me. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.....

I haven't downloaded this game because I found the appearance of the same orangeybrown coloured graphics on all 3 screenshots visually unappealing and, having read the comments above, it only reinforces my decision to not even try it.

Lasted only 19 min. and quit. Another straight Hog with constant loading from scene to scene. The only good thing about the dreaded spot the difference was that the skip button worked immediately. The game seemed to have no focal point, you can not really have a lot of dialogue followed by one HOG scene after another, then more dialogue, another HOG scene,more dialogue.It's like trying to have a conversation with someone and you keep losing track because you are constantly interrupted.Can not recommend. Straight HOG lovers enjoy, not for me.

The special objects to open the "extras" are minute and I had it on easy so at least I could see sparkles; otherwise would have never found them. The story line is boring and it is a no buy for me.

Boring is being kind. If you wait long enough you get sparkles for the bonus finds in each scene. Not much of a challenge with the bonus items. Sorry I even wasted the trial time.

disappointing, convoluted, small items hard to see, a no buy for this black duck...

This was a very strange game! A straight HOG , that's for sure with a lot of screen changing and dialogue to skip through. I kinda heaved a sigh or relief when the demo was over. I would rate this a 4 out of 10. Didn't care for it at all.

I agree, not worth the time to download this one. I sure was looking forward to something good this week-end, too. I guess I will keep replaying all my old games.

Thought I'd give it a try even though (yep) it's all HOG. Items are miniscule but that's okay. What's not okay is that the first time I used the Hint..it hung my system. Couldn't even C-A-D out of it...so no buy for me. Really getting frustrated (again) with the quality of the games.

One good thing is there isn't a misclick penalty, lol. Items to find are sometimes super tiny, especially the bonus items. You aren't told what they are until you click on one. This will be a challenge to play, but you do have plenty of hints. I do believe this one will be wearing on the eyes, and so will play in spurts.

This game was mentioned many moons ago by Mudrock, and I seem to recall many were disappointed that it didn't come out as expected. I now see why Guess this is as good as as this one could get. Either that, or they just stuck it on the back burner. At least it isn't a dreaded HdO.

Another rubbish game, what is going on BFG. The only good games are CEs and even those this month have not been very good. Very old hat, been there done that.
Desperate for a decent game.

This one is just click, click, click. Impossibly small items - no mini games to really speak of at all.

This is a definite NO BUY for me - sorry.

Totally agree. I thought the color in the video was awful and didnt appeal to me at all.
Off to play another old game.

Thought this was going to be a happy game day for me lol
