Liked the storyline. Graphics looked good but a little grainy for me. Graphics do show great surrounding details but some of the hog scenes had small/grainy items. Loved the voices I thought they were good.

I did purchase the CE from the devs site. Thank goodness for [removed by moderator]..... I would not have gotten very far at all in the bonus game. The built in SG was available in the game which is great but it was not the greatest SG I have seen, it doesnt explain some of the steps very clearly for a player like me lol I am not very good at these games but love them. No SG in bonus (bummer).

Several of the hidden objects were a little small for me so I had to use my hint button to see them.

I finished the game including the bonus and my total time was 4 1/2 hrs. I am a super slow player and took alot of breaks and was lost a lot lol. The bonus chapter was pretty good until near the very end and it was a little flat.

Giving 4 stars but should be a 3 1/2 maybe.

Defineately give this game a try.

Happy gaming fishies

I thought this was going to be a fun game BUT, the hogs were tottally horrible. I couldn't find half the things without a magnifying glass or hints. There is no way I would buy a game like this.

We have a detailed walkthrough posted here at Big Fish Games. It has step by step instructions as well as marked screenshots, so it should help if you're stuck.

To get to the Blog Walkthrough, click on the Try this Game link at the top of this page, then click on the link to the Blog Walkthrough.

Good luck!

I'm SO, so tired of this this whole asylum garbage that I'm not even going to waste my time trying it. Come on, developers, surely you must have some new ideas out there?

Hmm, not sure what I think about this game. Don't particularly like it or hate it. If I compare it to other SE's that have come out lately like Odysseus or The maze, this game pales in comparison. I have finished the hr. demo and am past the 3/4 mark without using the walkthrough or hints so its a fairly short one. One of the things I ask myself when playing a game is "am I having fun?" the answer to that question in regards to this game was NO. So no buy for me.

If ever I need to escape an asylum, I'm sure I'll take time to find a Bowtie, a Beetle, and a Mousetrap. Then Shazamm! Freedom!

Okay, pine trees are green. But in this game, so is everything else including sheets, walls, floors, food, and ME after playing part of the trial.

Another Asylum. Grainy graphics. And did I mention everything is green?

Whewwwwww.....used up a lot of sneakers on this one. Not a terrible game but have played better about same subject matter. The voice overs are excellent, story is okay, music is good. I thought the elevator music was a nice touch for detail. Must agree with other players on the HOG scenes...some objects very hard to find.
All in all...am almost done and can't say it wasn't worth playing. I rate it out of 5

I am curious to know if anyone else is having a seizure inducing white screen flash in between the scenes of this game. This is happening to me and it is really irritating me. I do realize that this could be a problem with my computer, and not one that other people are having, but if anyone else has encountered the same problem I would be curious to know.

I normally love a good asylum game, but even if I wasn't having to deal with the annoying flashing white screen, I think I would still feel as if there is is something off about this game. Although the voice acting is a nice touch, the animation looks cheap to me, and the plot feels so cliche that it is causing me to have deja vu. I know that I have never played this game before, I do not play games on sites other than BFG, nor do I beta test games for developers (I have only had a chance to do that for one game and it wasn't this one), yet how the game started made me feel as if I have played it before. Perhaps it gets better and more original as it moves along, but the beginning hasn't really grabbed me and I am not sure if it going to be able to maintain my interest.

I think this game is a good one for a Standard Edition.

The music is okay, the story is quite interesting, and I enjoyed the gameplay.

I am 1/3 of the way through the game, taking my time using no hints in Expert Mode.

Have a Punchcard Credit to use, so I am getting this game.

I really enjoyed your sense of humor.
You expressed exactly my feelings.I couldn't say it better.

I thought the game was great and I don't like Hidden Object Scenes (HOS). But there were very few HOS in the game and I thought they were pretty easy. Plus it has a lenient random-click penalty, so you can random-click without getting caught, so to speak.

HOS aside, I thought the rest of the game was great. Very well done. It keeps track of your time and it took me 4:27 to finish the main game. I am starting the bonus chapter now.

The bonus chapter took me 1:18 to complete, so the CE of the game took me 5:45 to complete.
