Gotta take a break cuz I have a migraine starting to kick in, so I'm off to medicate but wanted to mention that it does get more challenging, some items very well hidden. I have used 3 hints, though one was one of those Doh! moments when it was smack dab center screen how the heck didn't I see that sorta deal. I want to take this one slooow and savor it. Really good so far for this Poodle's preferences in gaming.

It wouldn't download for me at first, either. On Game Manager it was just frozen at >1% . But I paused the download, counted to ten, then clicked to resume download and it worked just fine.

Well, I'm sure I'll try out the trial, but if it's that easy, I won't be buying it.

Played all night. Yaaawwwnnn. Great game, but I found a bug. It won't quit. The very last, closing scene looped 4 times before I decided to ctrl/alt/del the game. I'll contact BF about it.

Yep... this game's for me... May not be as challenging as some... but still enjoyable...and I"ve just started so maybe I've spoken too soon.
Bought it without trying the demo...
Love to start a morning like this...makes my day... !!! thx BF

Yes this game is also for me, funny like it's exactly like the Crystal Portal (which I bought at another site ..... ) even the sounds are the same. I just hope it's a little bit longer than the Crystal which was a little bit short ... Anybody finished this game already ????

It doesn't get better than this for those of us who like games like Crystal Portal! This is perfection! No timers; fun, but imaginative and challenging mini games; beautiful graphics. WOW! For pure relaxation while still keeping our "gray matter" working, this is fabulous! The perfect blend of factors for those of us who enjoy an HO game with no timers. It is even fairly easy to find logical stopping points. (Still have to take care of the mundane, daily chores.)

I downloaded and played for the free trial. It's good they give those to us before our purchase. I was not impressed with the game. The rooms are dark and I had to click all over the screen to find the items. The plus to the game is no limit on hints and no time limit. I am not going to purchase this game because of all the clicking involved to find the items, there is no challenge in that.

I just finished this game and I think it's of the highest quality. Truly a sublime experience.

Yes, it was dark but I just adjusted my screen brightness and it was fine. I generally have to do that on all Hidden Object games because I keep my desktop darkish. I did not have to click all over the screen by any means, most objects pretty easy to find, some well hidden. You do have to sometimes switch between one container object to another to proceed and sometimes that's not clear.

Anyway, I'd say it was about 4-5 hours worth of play given the breaks I took. Some of the puzzles were very challenging, good story line (though ya know pirates were actually very bad people, even if they were grandmas ) and flawless gameplay. Amazing art work, worth it just for that. Well the boy kid's face kinda bugged me. Anyway, couldn't be happier.

Oh, one odd flaw - at the end of the game at the last cut scene it wouldn't let me exit, just kept playing it over and over. Had to ctrl/alt/del and use Task Manager to "End Task" to get out of the game. Buyt if a game's gonna be glitchy, the last possible moment is the time to do it.

Played the one hour demo. It was OK. Don't plan to purchase at this time. Will put on my "maybe" list. I still have a few games to play from my Octoberfest purchases.

Okay, I like this game too. However, after I fixed the fuse box and did the items you had to find on the two floor ones I couldn't figure out where to go next. I have the fireplace one opened and keep finding objects that don't go there. I do not know where to put the next set of objects. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Is it just me, or does this game seem to move in slow motion. Have the same problem with secrets of margrave manor...which wasnt that slow on my other computer with XP, but the game froze on that one, slow as all get out on here with vista...anyone else having this problem?

I am downloading Treasure after reading some of the posts here about it. I had the same type of problem with Azada 2 on Vista. Ran slow and cursor floated all over. I am going to play it this afternoon and see if it does the same on mine. Contact tech support, they helped me many times.

Love the game and bought it. Had no problems on vista. Reminds me of another one I played earlier in the year but can't remember what the name of that one was. I don't mind if it is a little easy if it is interesting and fun to play.

I'm glad everyone seems to be enjoying Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold. I enjoyed it a lot myself. We'll have a forum for it up tomorrow for everyone to discuss it in.

Happy gaming!

Hi Everybody
I just finished the hour and I can't decide. Should I or not. I do have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket.... I mean beak(??). It is a quite game don't you think? I guess that doesn't matter if you play with the sound off but it really bugged me. I got lonely. I got as far as the attic with the girl and the boy both. Does it get any better??

Poodle
I hope you are feeling better soon.
