I tend to agree with most of the negative comments, [/b]BUT with a free trial of one hour there is no reason not to try the game for yourself and make up your own mind. If we all thought the same, all dogs and cats would be rescue animals.

I agreed with your point of view that
"It is a very simple game, so experienced players will probably not enjoy it unless they are looking for light entertainment."
Definitely a probable DD for me, especially as it was first released in 2009, so really it should be a DD today and not the TGT! LOL!


Yep here we go with the clear out bin/ rejects again...
OMGosh BFG is it tooo much for us humble fishies to ask for games that work properly and are recent releases.....

Yawn. Boring. May be a good game for the very young or inexperienced.

I am VERY tolerant of HOGs, but this one had me hitting the Delete button after 5 minutes. Can't believe I had to go through the uninstall/reinstall process for the GM for this Carp. What a waste of time.

I bought this one a couple of years ago during a BF hog drought...waste of money, as it is very short. I have learned my lessons though, and always keep plenty of books on hand. Would rather read a good book than play a lousy game nowadays

I don't think this game is anywhere as bad as other posters are making it out to be. If nothing else, everyone should form their own opinion and do the hour demo. Not sure why someone would think this game should be in the children's section since it is not a child's game. Not every adult wants to play games with blood, gore, vampires, etc. If released on BF a few years ago, everyone would have raved about it.

I did finish the game in the hour demo, but I skipped a lot of games I didn't feel like playing. If someone took the time to actually read all the dialogue and play all the games, it would probably take 2-3 hours. The graphics were cute. Cartoony, but cute. The storyline somewhat interesting. I thought the music was great. I do feel that now it probably would have been better released as a DD, but it is at least worth a try for yourself.

This is a fine game for folks that have not been playing long. The hints are pretty easy to earn, there doesn't seem to be a penalty for wrong guesses. While some things are pretty small and hard to find there is no timer and you can always use a hint.
I can picture some little people I know playing this since there are so many different puzzles to keep their attention. Hidden objects with words and pictures, jigsaw puzzles, find the difference, concentration matches - wow.

my granddaughter tried this game and thought it was "old" and not up to Big Fish's usual standards and I have to agree with her. She used my account, with my permission, and bought the game so I'm stuck with it; but I won't be finishing it.

I don't think I would even buy this as a dd. It was a matter of clicking everything that was out of place....very simple. Annoying to have to find the same things over again by shape and having the shaped come in only a few at a time. I enjoyed the mini games. The find the combination had wrong directions. I found the first 3 numbers and tried every combination with no results. Directions said each number would only be used once. My combination had 2 of the same number in it. It seems like a very amateurish attempt at making a game.

The big problem for me with this game is the temptation to make jokes about her honeymoon and the level of difficullty.

Not surprised to read that this is not a new game. Unfortunately it plays like a much older game that doesn't stand the test of time. I gave up after only 13 minutes. Sad to say that the biggest disappointment was the very first screen and it pretty much gives you an idea of how the rest of the game is going to play out. One did not even have to look at the list of objects; one only had to click on anything that looked remotely out of place in what should be an unoccupied hotel room. The spot the difference screen was no better - I found the 10 differences in as many seconds - it was that obvious. There may have been more "fun" mini-games to come, but the game didn't capture my interest enough to bother playing out the demo. Hey it costs nothing but your time to demo the game and judge for yourself, but even as something "light" to pass an afternoon away, there are much better choices even if this was offered as a DD.

This is the most boring game I have ever played. It looks very old and plays just as badly.

I seem to go with the flow here. I didn't care for this game much either. I think it was too simple and not even good for a rainy day game. I hardly ever exit out of demos, just like someone else had mentioned, but this one I did. The music was awful and the clapping (where did that come from? was I hearing things?) . The graphics were awful with some of the items too small. ( Although I didn't have too use too many hints.) Sorry BF, this game didn't grab me at all. I would rate a "3" out of 10. One of my lowest ratings...

I do not normally comment about a game but honestly boring

Now I know why the graphics looked so old as they are. A 2009 game??? Come on BFG. You are really going down faster than a $10 hooker.

I expect more from you than this trash. This game was boring beyond belief. And the music was terrible. I couldn't even finish the hour trial as it was just too boring and annoying for me.

I wouldn't purchase this game if it was a daily deal.
