Well, its nice to see the forum for this game up and running - better late than never.
Any chance that the posts in CCC and the Technical Forum regarding this game can be transferred across so that we don't have to repeat the same information?

Hi Spiritdog,
The developers are better known for the Aveyond series - and other games.
Cheers

Hi Spiritdog51, to "let go" of an item, just click on the background - in most cases, if it's not used in the right place, it'll just return to the tray.

Amaranth Games is the creator of A Gypsy's Tale: The Tower of Secrets and a good number of Aveyond games, plus some time management/strategy games. There's a "More Games" button on the title screen where you can see them all, and they're all right here on BFG

Thanks DragonLadyOz and ShazPG for the developer's information for this new CE!! I will probably buy this CE game if it's the same developer as A Gypsy's Tale.... I loved that game!!!

Does anyone know... is this more of an adventure-type game also? Thanks again.

PS: Happy New Year!

I could only use the rock once in the yard. When I started the game again, there were only 6 pieces to be picked up. When I started a third time, I could only use the rock once again. Very disappointing way to start a game.

Had a weird glitch in which some of the pieces of the rock and the lever weren't on my screen. Hubby was playing at the same time and he found them but they weren't on my screen. I couldn't continue since I can't finish those items to move on. Not sure what is up with that but it does look like a very cool game.

Fortunatus, it is more of an adventure-type game.

I love this game, no problems during the demo, everything work fine with me.

But then again rarely have problems with the games I download and play.

So far I'm very disappointed in this game. I found the pieces of the stone after reinstalling the game and found that (spoiler) you have to use the rock on the RIGHT eye first and then the left eye.

Now, however, I'm looking for the lever and there's a piece not there according to the guide. Never, ever have I had problems like this with any game on this site. Won't be buying this one until the bugs are fixed.

Hi there cottoncandy,
There seem to be a few people who have missing pieces of this item. Have you tried the HINT button? You need to watch where it ends to see what it is indicating.
Cheers.

Dragonlady, I did try the hint and all it did was point towards the rock and not where to find the missing pieces. I hope they debug this because it has potential.
Thanks!

I played the whole sample game but I won't be buying.

I knew I would probably not enjoy it as much as other recent similar games just as soon as I saw the stone pieces you need to find in the first object hunt because the pieces were both not integrated realistically into the scene and they just plain looked wierdly unnatural.

The rest of the game had better graphics (except the gem pieces) but still not my cup o' tea.

I did appreciate the scene brightness slide option, however. And I had no technical problems or glitches.

Edit: fixed it. Some of these items are so precise when you click on them it's like pixel hunting.

I finished the demo at the cave power box game, still not problems with the game i found so far everything I needed until that point.

I like the game and I am playing on hard mode.

Although I bought the game and finished the demo at this point I can only review what was in the demo.

Graphics: Good and with the addition of the slider bar even better. Good idea devs!

Map: Excellent-love being able to hop back and forth. Another good idea devs.

Tasks: Good idea because now you know if you still have to do something in an area. I am not overly fond of a journal/log book unless it stores clues for a puzzle/minigame. There is no book in this game-just the SG.

Coins: Another nice addition that aids in completing the map. Almost like finding morphing objects (but they do not morph).

Music: OK I guess but then I always turn it down anyway.

Strategy Guide: Useful as it does give pictures and instructions.

HOS: Well done and in some scenes you do have to complete something extra for some of the items.

All in all I am satisfied with my purchase and feel it is well worth the money. The only complaint I have at this time is the full downloadable version (what you buy) was not available when I bought the game. Same problem BFG had with a recent CE. Hope they fix it fast.

Hi there KBEAR2045,
Maybe you have the full version.
The Trial for this game is a 60 minute one and not a Sample, so perhaps the trial downloads the full game and does not need to be downloaded again after purchase.
Have you played further than the hour's worth?
Cheers
