Good Morning all.

Downloading now !!! LOL.

Honestly I am so happy I have been waiting for this game for ages & ages & have been googling it at leest once a week ever since I beta'd it.

I playied it 3 times before I wiped my computer & my memory is telling me it is up there with the JOYVILLE games.

I also remember it being a bit "creepy", but not in the usual sense LOL.

I will do a review later - in the review thread- , when I have tried out the CE version. I know it is a big no-no, but it was an instant buy for me. I have kept 2 credits on ice ever since I read this game was to be released this month.

Enjoy it all, I am sure you will.

Jojo

Creepy as in ghosts and spiders? Or gory as in torture chambers, guillotines ratio to rats skulls and blood? Looks colorful and fun, nice graphics,music cheery. Haven't I played same theme amusement park in 3 games recently? Let us know in reviews later what's outstanding here, can you mention the dev? Just need 2 punches now so willl be back later to read since it's a CE

Thanks, going back to Spooky sale shopping. have OD'd on demos.

Well I've played 30 minutes and I'm not sure. It seems to be a good game, but I found it slightly irritating. Whenever you put the mouse in a area where you can move to, an arrow pops up (pretty standard) but the area also sparkles just incase you didn't see the arrow? Hidden Object scenes also sparkle away as well as a few other areas, there is no option to turn them off! There is also a click penalty that will annoy a few here I'm sure. I think it is quite a good game but could have been better.

JoJo - You may want to say something up front for everyone about the strategy guide - how it looks like it's just pictures and how they have to click on a picture to get the "walkthrough" information.

Deleted my previous post .

No buy for me . Reasons:

- no widescreen support
- too much help which you can't turn off in the options menu

Over 600mb for a trial?? I dread to think how big a d/l the whole game must be!! The screenshots look colourful, bright and interesting. If it's anywhere near as good as Dreamland, should be a keeper.

Promised myself no more CE's unless they're exceptional; Royal Envoy 2, which is released tomorrow, will be a definite buy (hopefully it will be on this site by Thursday, if I can wait that long!!) but fingers crossed for this game too!

Look really quick when you click on a hint in the H0 scenes...each time, I have had to use the hint twice as I missed it the first time...annoying. I will get it just cuz I am ready to play a gaime...should just go to bed and wait until the first, lol, but I want a game to play this weekend. Something about this one though just seems kinda 'off' to me. I am hoping it will get better.

Morning all!

Looks like you are either still half asleep or overtired and need to go to bed, Angelfish.

If you look underneath the "Try" and "Buy" buttons, you will see that this is NOT a trial version, but the whole game, which gives you an hour to play the demo.

Dont worry Gailgo, this game is definitely not in the same league as Dreamland.

A lot of H0 scenes in this game but mostly very easy. Although there are sparkles, it does not necessarily mean you can do anything in that area, so not too helpful in that way. I found it to be very engrossing. I did not come across a click penalty but then I do not continuously click around.
One of these games that you really need to give a fair trial. IMHO.
Have fun all.

An OK game but not in my opinion worth the CE price, reasons being....
1 incredibly easy HOS. I don't like tiny obscure objects but these were jumping up at me shreaking "here I am"
2 Almost a no brainer as to what to do next,due to constant sparkles.
3 Music irritating after a while.
4 Started to get annoyed with the stupid clowns popping up and not doing anything
5 Does not have the " wow factor" I want in my CE's

I stress this is only my opinion,after all it wouldn't be much good if we all liked the same things!

Happy Sunday to all who are liking this one

Well, my opinion too! Played for 35 mins. and just didn't see CE written on it anywhere. Also, I like the wall papers, (yes, I'm one of the ones who does,lol) and the SG(also a must in CEs) doesn't seem necessary in this one. Strike one: no wall papers, Strike 2 doesn't need a SG, strike three CE price ! Sorry and Devs,but, buying today is OUT!
Will probably get when the SE is released as I am curious about the ending!
Happy Gaming All

Well I have been up since just after 7.15am; so much for clocks going back and getting an extra hour of sleep! You're quite right of course, it is the demo and not a trial, so no gigantic download of the whole game! A relief for me as I am on a monthly d/l limit

Before I download the entire game just to try it out, can I just confirm that it has sparkles and they can't be turned off?

Because if it has and they can't, I won't even bother with a DL.

Short answer is yes and yes! As well as showing a search scene, they've also been added to the direction arrows and appear when you move the cursor to an area that needs exploring.

I'm not a fan of overdone sparkles, however I can't say I found them at all irritating in this game. It's still worth a try; you never know, you might like the game in spite of the sparkles

Yes. BUT they do not spoil things for you, as you cannot necessarily do anything where the sparkles are. This is a good long game and more difficult than it first appears. IMHO.
