You reached the end of the game in 1 hour and 30 minutes after the game was released? Wow!! You're a fast player!! Other people are reporting that it took them around 5 hours or more. How on earth did you do that!!?? You're superhuman!!

I got the same thing. Couldn't play after I got an access violation, program terminated. I tried removing it and redownloading it and it did the same thing.

I gave this game to myself as a Christmas gift and played it pretty much straight through. I loved it thoroughly. Beautiful graphics, calming appropriate music, engaging story, fun puzzles. This game is an all around great game.

I liked the length. Personally, if I'm going to pay money for a game, I want it to last a while without being too frustrating so I can savor the enjoyment. This game exceeded my expectations in this area.

Highly recommend it.

It was tested extensively on Win7, Win XP, and Vista - should run fine on any of them.

Great Game, shame about the puzzles - way too many of them and way to repetitive! Otherwise an interesting Game. Thanks

I bought this with my free Game Credit.

I absolutely loved the pocket dragon. My only tiff and it' s only one small one is some of the objects are very small.


OMG downloading The Dreamless Castle now. How did I miss that one???? Thank you Mistickel for pointing that out. Yay!

BTW, I love all the puzzles... you need something to break up the adventuring. It's just perfect.

Anyone know why we don't get a full screen?

I rather enjoyed finding 8 candles, mushrooms, etc. It made it different and I enjoy that. That was done in one of the MCF games too.

Yes, I have Windows 7, Home Edition, 32 bit, and it runs perfect.

To BoomZap representative: the concept of the game is stunning, the resolution is crisp and clear, the Adventure part of the game is very very good - but there are too many "swap tiles" and "restore objects". At the end I get tired, and skip many of these mini-games.

Also, it's not a fun to search for x number of one object (20 flowers, 15 spiders, etc). I would prefer more HOG screens, giving me even more than one object at the end (many games are composed so), but keeping the HOG system.

Nevertheless - high game quality! Merry X-mas...

[b] Merry Christmas to All!

Thank you for the !

As well, I would also like to thank all those fishies who give of their time to write these reviews. I almost always look here first for your recommendations. It is rare if I do not. Like if it is a MCF, I buy them immediately but those are about the only ones. All the others I rely on your words whether I am going to even demo or not.

God bless All,
TeriMO

I played the demo, then immediately bought this game. I agree with all the positive comments about graphics, game mechanics and concept. Even on the normal mode, I didn't have to search too hard to find objects, and I prefer the swap tiles puzzles to STDs any day. This is definately a beautiful, well done HOG, and I look forward to the next installment, if one is to be made.

I'm tempted to buy after reading all the great reviews and since the first game was so much fun. But I've learned my lesson - I'm off to d/l first.

Don't get me wrong: I have absolutely no quibble with fairy themes--in fact, a good friend of mine gave me (count 'em) three fairy figurines as a Christmas gift today.

But this struck me as so saccharine...a kind of "Dream Chronicles" wannabe (but not so well done or as engaging) that I just can't bring myself to even finish the demo.

Many games are steeped in fairy tale lore (which I believe is one of the most difficult 'moods' to capture) but this isn't grabbing me. The voices, the tone established from the beginning, the mandates (goals) are not riveting, not strong enough to make me want to play.

Take a game like Drawn: Dark Flight...within 10 minutes I KNEW I was hooked and didn't mind a bit that it was pricier because it was a CE.


For those who just want to play and are not overly concerned with this kind of thing, or overly persnickety (or insistent about detail like the twin feline gamseters, Harry and Theo Houdini) it will probably be a lot of fun, but it just doesn't work for me.

Happy Holidays!

Alas this game locked up at the very beginning. The fairy was on the flower and woke up and that is when the arrow stopped working except in some areas it was still visible, but did not function. I could not even get it to open the menu. I had to shut down the computer as it would not even respond to alt control delete. I hope I can get this fixed as it looked good.

I'm torn on whether to buy this game. On the one hand, it's only $6.99. On the other hand, do I want to spend that money if the game is short? I got to chapter three in my demo time.

The graphics are quite beautiful. There are nice little touches and animations here and there that add to the enchanting feel of the game. I actually enjoyed the music. It reminds me of those nature sounds/calming sounds CDs. It's very relaxing. The mini-games and puzzles are very easy, though. They also seem to be variations on the same things. I agree with the other reviewers that said this game is a little too sweet. I'm playing on "normal" mode and finding the game to be really easy. Inventory items that you need to collect are usually very clear in each area. Once you get them, you don't have to stray to far to use them, either. This game is really cute and pretty enjoyable, but I'm just not too sure about it.

I bought this before the hour was up. Great graphics, story line OK. The mini-games were fairly easy, but not too bad.

I would have loved this game except for the mini-games. They got incredibly repetitious and boring. How many find the two that look alike, find the one that doesn't fit and swap/rotate the tiles can you do without going absolutely nuts? And you get to do each one 6 whole times before the mini is over. UGHHHH!!! And, as you get further into the game, you have to back seven clicks to do one thing and then return the 7 clicks to where you were. I could live with that, but the mini-games are making me nuts. I may not finish the game - and that would be a first.

But - if you want a really long game, this is it. The mini-games make it last forever.

Great game, nice to have a decent HOG for a change (been a bit thin on the ground lately) Love how many puzzles there are. For wife and myself, it's mainly the puzzles that make these games, hidden objects are fine but bring on the puzzles.
Oh, and Happy Christmas and a happy new year to all, God bless us, every one.
