An adventure Fragmented Object Game from [removed by moderator] with 2 modes of play (Casual is default, Expert can be selected in Options) , hints recharge a bit slowly.

No map but you only go to four sites but with alot of tasks. Play time from 3 to 4 hours.

It has gameplay that is a bit linear so, doing things in the right order will get you best results.

The ending is satisfying but left a bit of room for a sequel.

A delightful game. After yesterdays abysmal offering this is like a breath of fresh air. I like everything about it. Top marks BF. Bought right away.

I also like this game and will probably buy but I'm stuck already, looking forward to working out what to do next when I have the time Definitely more adventure than HOG so far which is also a plus as far as I'm concerned.
Graphics are good and HOG lists are silhouettes of the objects to find which then make an object you need. Might be useful to know what the final object will be sometimes. They seem to get more difficult as you progress but that might just be me.
I've played 42 mins of the demo and found one of ten coins so looks like it might be a decent length for me at least.

Goodday fishies!

I've already played this game from elsewhere and I've enjoyed it very much! It has clear and pleasant graphics, the minigames are fun to do, the story has an interesting twist and the hidden objects, fragmented, are easy to find. All in all this game is fairly easy, but I didn't mind.

A nice change from the darker-themed games.

4 out of 5

Enjoy!

Played the demo and I like it. The HOS are alright for me, it's not difficult. Beautiful graphics and clear. Puzzles are nice. It's a funny game! A buy for me.

Thanks BF and Dev's!

A lovely game with bright sharp clear graphics. One more important factor it is fun and a nice change of pace from other fun but dark and gloomy adventures.

At first I wasn't sure, but as I got into the game, I really started to enjoy it. It was a little different quirky type of game, but it had good graphics and the music wasn't bad. The gameplay was fairly easy enough to follow and the ****'s and mini games were good. I liked the game overall and would rate it a 9 out of 10.`

[removed by moderator] listen to the customers - large size objects (most of us wear glasses ), lovely plot, great graphics, and...fun fun fun! Recently I am tired of "psychic hospitals" and search for the "bright plots". I still love ghosts - because they are part of the "fairy tale". Cudos, [removed by moderator]!

Most Adventure than HOG, but quite easy and relaxing for a rainy day. Bought of course.

Thanks developers, thanks BF!

Loved this game so much.....another fantastic SE game!!!

The game is on the easy side and maybe the developer is aiming at young children but it's still great fun for us! Graphics are colorful and lovely, some scenes are attractive and beautiful. I love the story, it's a further change of the well known tale, very unique! It's a FROG game which I prefer, objects are nott too hard too find. Puzzles are creative and fun. Highly Recommend...

I finished this game some time ago when it was first available on developer's site, want to put in some good words for it here.

I love this game , as a SE, it has good voiceacting, high production values, clear colorful beautiful graphics.

Game is engaging, I like it much better than other $6.99 recent games like Love Story Beach Cottage or Urban Maze.

Difficulty is right, solved it entirely on my own, Can't remember game time, was stuck, think it was 4 hours or so.

This game is very enjoyable, do give it a try and support the devs!

A fantastic SE for a change. I really like this game. The graphics are very unique and beautiful. Two modes of play, gives everyone there choice on how they would like to play the game. Great voiceovers and a really good story. Yes, it is on the easy side for advanced players, but the quality makes up for that. What a refreshing change to see a fantastic SE for a change. This is a buy for me and a must try for sure. Enjoy! I really like this game!

I rate this game: "FINE SWINE"


FINE SWINE:
Great game with the best graphics and story. Bells and whistles, best, greatest, I love it.

This is a very good game with good graphics, good music, good gameplay and good voiceovers. Two gameplay modes- Expert and Casual. Very easy game but still good.

This is a buy for me- I will use one of my punchcard credits.

It didn't take long for me to decide to buy this game. I'm totally stuck right now, but I know I can figure it out eventually (and if not, BF's fantastic walkthrough team is working on a WT right now - it should be posted sometime today!)

The cartoon-y graphics are beautiful, the H0 scenes are NOT junkpile for a change, but still a challenge because there are silhouettes of the fragments (yes, it's a FROG) so you need to look carefully. So far, the pieces you need to find are nice and big - wonderful change from yesterday's microscopic items.

Nice adventure aspects, too. You need to find things to help people or complete tasks, and you often have more than one task at a time (not as linear as many games) so it's NOT find something / use something, repeat. That's where I'm stuck right now - I need to solve at least 4 problems and my brain isn't working yet (early morning here.)

Great game, it's an SE that wasn't released first as a CE, and I still had one punch card credit left from August - can't get any better than that!! Give it a try!

Cute game with unique characters. Wide screen, graphics good and music is subtle and relaxing. Not a fan of silhouettes but have been able to find most. Have played 40 minutes and it seems that there is a lot more game play. Have some crazy items in my inventory so it should be a fun adventure! A buy for me!

I can only agree with all comments. I was uncertain when I began the demo but I was drawn/led into it easily and was quite disappointed when the demo called me to time. I think this game will soon be in mypossession.

Well done to the authors - well done BFG - just what everyone was in need of.

XXXXXXXX

The graphics are clear and colorful, the music is OK. The story line interesting, but the game is not for me. With the exception of Blue Tea games, I don't like FROGs and on top of it being fragmented objects...they are silhouettes. Some people may love this game. I can certainly understand its appeal. But, it's not for those of us who don't care for silhouettes and/or FROGs. Too bad. I've got these coupon codes burning a hole in my pocket.
