This game was ok but far too easy for my liking. Flew through the lists very quickly and the mini-games were even easier!!! The symbol drawing was mostly easy but occasionally it got rather picky and i had to re-draw upto 5 times. I did not play the full hour trial, as i was totally bored afer 40 minutes

Gameplay is simple for the hidden items part. The drawing the symbols part is annoying and upskippable. Not a real interesting game. The storyline seems well written. The graphics are fair and the little guy that jumps out and says "Well done" was REALLY annoying.

All in all, it's a C.

It should be working now! The price of the Daily Deal should automatically be $2.99.

Thank you, Tigris, for letting us all know that you folks are on the case and working to get the cranky DD code whipped into shape.

You're great, working on the weekend to keep the games flowing to us fans. I really appreciate the job that you folks do. Most of it is behind the scenes and we never know about it. Something like this reminds us that you're looking after us all the time. You're our guardian s .

Edit: Got it!! Thanks for fixin' it.

No Buy for me. There are too many other games I'd rather put my $2.99 toward this month.

BFG just began offering the DD WITHOUT a code. I bought one once recently, and it just came up with the price being $2.99. But I don't understand why they changed this, and why it took until 3 p.m. in the afternoon to work out the problem? Maybe 'cause it's Sunday. For me, the code was much easier.

Enjoy your DD everyone! I'm saving up - hoping some of the CE's will come out in regular editions before the end of the month.

As always,

I downloaded this to trial it and found I must have already done so in the past since I had only 40 minutes... well... 10 minutes in and I realized why I still had 40 minutes on the trial. The graphics were pretty sad... even for a 2007 game. It's basically flat single items stuck willy nilly on the scene. Same issues others have mentioned... multiple items like 5 birds except there are 10 birds in the scene... very irritating. Seems like lazy game making to me when they do that... like they aren't paying attention. Now, if they said 5 BLUEBIRDS and there was a mixture of different types of birds that might be fun or at least a fair challenge. But I don't want to be forced into random clicks... that's not why I play games.

Straight hog (which admittedly I'm bored with now so a new hogger may find this one more to their liking than I do) with a drawing mini-game in between. I normally LOVE the drawing/painting type games but this got old fast. And I pretty much wanted to smack the crazy fake Asian old guy that popped up at the end of the scenes with his hands in the air. So weird. No clue what the storyline was supposed to be as I didn't start over... just started where I'd left off the last time I tried it. But the game didn't seem to have an Oriental feel to it so why he was there?? Only the game maker knows.

Anyway... bored after 10 minutes so uninstalled again. No buy for me even at $2.99.

Yay Thank you!


I prefer the new system, much less hassle, no copying codes, goes straight to the page and applies discount

I'm glad this game was only $2.99, because it is stupid and boring and timed. Hate it.

Thanks for getting the daily deal pricing situation cleared up. While I do like more challenging games......this is a nice break when you just want to play and have fun doing so. At $2.99, worth the price.

I didn't have trouble with any part of the game, in fact I think I may have come close to finishing it within the hour demo. Still I quite liked it as simple as it was; there was something appealing about the graphics and the ease of the mini games. If I didn't have so many other games that I've bought and still haven't gotten around to playing I would buy this.

Yep. Same here. I have sent an email to BFG to complain, so I hope they replace my game credit. They are always good at making things right. It's frustrating when the website malfunctions, but on a week-end it's TRAGIC! LOL

I was surprised to read all the negative reviews for this game as on the actual review page there is only 1 and the player gives it 5 stars. I always refer to the review page for a particular game to get feedback so it's a bit confusing when the review page gives it a 5 star and the forum page has lots of negativity. Can't everything be centralised?
