Why isn't the hint button loading at all? I'm stuck on lvl 4 already and i have 1 more to find but I can't for the life of me see what it is and the hint wont load and if I random click it just keeps making me restart over and over

Don't really care for this one. Played less than 1/2 hour of trial.
I found the music depressing, the "You have email" voice annoying and
the popup "find the last difference" was distracting and also annoying.
However I do enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to try for an hour.
BFG is a great site.

I really love your hidden object games. But this one was terrible. If you allow stars on ratting I would most likely give it a zero. The music is awlful. The game itself stinks.

First, Thank Goodness BFG gives you an opportunity to check out the games with the free hour trial. This game was a real BORE! If you like find the difference games, then maybe its for you but definately not for me. This is probably the first time I couldn't wait for the hour to be up. The "You have email" voice was very annoying and the popup "find the last difference" made you lose your train of thought. Definately won't be purchasing this one. I really hope a good HOG is out there in our future....really jonesing for a good game.

I heartily concur on the lack of interest in this game. BF has had such good games that I guess they are allowed a stinker every now and then. I too am glad for the free play time, I sure would not want to waste my money on this one. Please give this one a "0"

Like many others on the forum, I found this game lacking also. The "you've got email" couldn't have been more annoying. I'm a total addict to the HO games, but this one doesn't fall into that category in my book. I also agree with the others about the bubble popping up to "find the last difference". Thank goodness for the free trial period. I've got a feeling this game won't go over very well all around.

Hi

I cant believe everyone hates this game - I LOVE it i buy about 5/6 games a month from Big Fish and have most of the hidden object games - anyone know where there are any similiar games like this? Also anyone know when the next mystery case files is out?

Thanks

I was really disappointed by this one. How can they even classify this as an HOG?? All it really seems to be is a puzzle game-just the spot the differences, figure out the correct formula, etc. Has anyone come across where you acutally look for hidden items? I dumped this in the trash before I even finished my trial period, something I rarely do. If you want spot the differences, play the newest Mystery P.I. game (the New York Fortune). After you find 25 magnifying glasses you unlock the unlimited "spot the differences" section. I haven't done it yet but I am almost there.

Hi,
bought the game couple of weeks ago. Found it boring, especially the paintings. Wrote to BGF for something more ART of Paintings.

Must say that I'm better aquainted with the game now, and kind of like it. Type of paintings change when you go along. The music is not to my liking. Closing the loudspeaker volume.
The HINT button recharges itself. When the green circle around it completes.
But the detective narrator. Give me a break. Is he from the Wild West? Has nothing artsy about him.

I tried the 60 min trial and thought the game seemed different so I bought it. I am way up to lvl 2 and I don't know how I finished lvl1!!
What is the purpose? It seems like I just keep playing the mini-games over and over......
Would someone please take the time to explain how to play it? Most of the games are usually pretty easy to figure out and believe me I have a lot of games, however; this one explains zilch.

Thanks

This game is repeating itself to oblivion. What started out as "fun" is now pure agony. Make it stop! please! Nothing new in hours, the puzzles just get more impossible to solve. The story line, lame. I give in, not give up, You won I can no longer endure the endless mental repetetion. I might as well play solitaire.

I tried this for less than 5 minutes, and although it is not the worst game out there it is a strong contender! i put it in the trash straight away.

The game is not great but is does get better as you go along. In my opinion the demo time would not have given a good sense of the game

Well, I am not a fan of this game as I did find it on the boring side. I would love to see a TM, Strategy or HOG that gives us assignments much like the emails in this game.

Most people here are missing the point of the game. It's NOT a HOG! It's a "spot-the-difference" game and for those of us who like them, I think it's great. Yes, the "you've got an e-mail" is annoying, but I don't think it detracts at all. Unlike most people above, I get bored with the **** aspects of **** games and always look forward to the spot the difference parts.

For those of you out there that like the "spot-the-difference" games, I really recommend this one (thanks again to Howatch who steered me to it.) It's got some great art and enough challenges to make it worth $6.99.
