I had always thought that a Hidden Object Game was one in which there were screens of items that required the player to search for particular objects on some sort of list hidden among a group of disparate objects. I thought that an Interactive Hidden Object Game was one like the above but where items could be manipulated with other items to perform a task and advance the gameplay. Equally, that an Adventure Game required the manipulation of items, some obvious and some hidden, in order for the player to progress.

Lately, when I demo games on the BFG Hidden Object category screen, they are Adventure games...by the above criterion. There are no hidden object screens to sort through. Since I like the sorting process, I am most interested in the ones I've always classified as HOGs. I do like Adventure games and have played all the Mysts but the last one, both Syberias, Crystal Key, the Sherlock Holmes franchise, etc. but I really enjoy the HOGs.

Why are the games listed on the HOG page not always HOGs and is there any way to tell the difference without taking the time to download and actually play the game? I just browsed the walkthrough on this one and it seems to have no hidden object screens but I might be wrong. Is my definition of a HOG wrong?

Thanks for any help.




I'm with you on this although from a different angle. I personally don't really like the straightforward HOGS,( just one list after another with no other action) so I'm looking for adventure only or mainly adventure with just a few ****'s. I too end up having to download lots of games to decide whether they of interest or not. But I MUST state that I am NO EXPERT and still relatively new so I could be doing something wrong. So far as this game is concerned, I have played for the hour and whilst there have been things to find they are not really the type of scene which you are describing, Again, I could be wrong, but it doesn't appear to be what you describe as ****.
Not much help I'm afraid but you're not alone!

I am having trouble with the jars for the honey in the Crimea chapter. My screen has frozen up and neither the mouse pointer, the hint nor the tools are having any effect, I can either sit and stare at it or exit the game. I have exited and re booted 4 times on two separate days and still no luck.

Any ideas peeps? I am stuck and have managed to get this far without forum or walkthrough help. Boggart

bravo,
the hammer is one of your tools. Click on the girl icon and the brush, hammer and shovel will show. After you use it , it will return there to be used again.
Hope this helps.

I'm stuck in the pharoah's tomb after finding all the tiles. I can't close out the puzzle screen. I'm getting really tired of the glitches in the games lately. This is the 3rd game with glitches out of the last 4 I've bought.

Crimera Question

[Post New]by Crashga on Jun 11, 11 10:38 AM
I am in the cave in Crimera and I am trying to uncover the fresco. The Hint says that there is something under that grit......I dust it and dust it and it cycles through being uncovered then the moss covers it up again....tell me how to get the puzzle revealed that is outlined in the walk through...help please! This is the first trouble that I have had with this game -- I've enjoyed it up until hitting what looks like a game glitch.
