And I didn't want to reply in the "Reviews" thread, but it really irks me that the town of Hameln has an "i" in it. I mean, WHY? Why add an "i" to the town's name? I don't call Chicago "Chicaigo" just because I might be able to pronounce it better with an "i" in it (which I don't - just an example). LOL

It's enough already that the great river "Donau" is called "Danube", and the great city Köln is called "Cologne", so there also has to be an "i" added to "Hameln"? Why? To make it user-friendly ?


Quote from the Hameln website: "As well as the German name "Hameln" the town is also known as "Hamelin" and "Hamlin" to the English speaking world".

Hamelin is simply the English version of a German name, as is Danube and Cologne.

LOL come on all of you that are commenting on spelling of city and country names. These games are created all over the world and we are lucky that the developers try to please all of us. I don't remember the name of the game but was expected to find a "clew" in one of the HOS. I finally had to use a hint to find out it was a ball of yarn. Not sure which country this word comes from but I felt like an idiot since vocabulary has always been one of my prides. Down two pegs!

The Macabre Mysteries game by Blue Tea is a FROG game too Sunshine, in case you have not played that one yet.

Do you know about this deal? Go to your account and see...
You are lucky! I had 2 SE and today CE, but still 5 punches.


And I went to my account but didn't see anything unusual there. LOL But maybe I will once I buy this game?


Hi everyone, don't know if this helps but there was a deal on at the weekend, an extra punch for each game but they weren't awarded at the time. They were to be awarded during this week sometime

Loved this game! Played for about 4 hours ( with a lot of hints) and am up to the bonus game, which I will probably play tomorrow.
Oh the joys of being retired and able to please myself as to how I spend my time!

Personally, I'm disappointed. With patience I saved 2 credits to be able to buy a CE once in a while and when I saw 'Blue Tea Games' I hit the 'buy' button without hesitating because I loved their earlier games so well. But...

...this CE is not much different from any other good CE. Good graphics, nice music, enjoyable minigames but no Fragments to search for, no beautiful objects to be collected and not a very interesting story, cause the spooky part of the game (highlight to read) is revealed much too soon in the game, after which it becomes a common treasure-thief story with a Johnny Depp lookalike as the Viceroy (end of spoiler).

Sorry I bought this CE. Sorry I didn't wait for the other one coming out this week.

A Blue Tea game without FROGS? Say it isn't so. Those games are unique in a world of HOGS and I love them for it. I'll try this, but from reviews and comments it sounds like they're joining the pack instead of keeping what makes me look foward to their games. Insofar as Hamelin is concerned, the game is written in English using a longstanding English-language name for the town and the legend. Obviously if it were written in German, Hameln would be the correct form to use and Hamelin would stand out like a sore thumb.

I played the demo and I'm not very happy with all these stupid hogs. Why can't you BFpeople find a great adventure game without hos? We as gamers with brains that I know I'd like to expand with different games other than these same old games.Just because the devs know they will sell this type of game doesn't mean that's all we want. Match 3s are fun and building games are fun BUT why not throw in an ADVENTURE game without hos for a change. I feel like I don't even have to think to play these hogs all the time. They are so much the same I could play them with my eyes closed, ha ha.This is a no buy and a no waste my hard earned money game for me.

Hello Hannah. There are game sites out there that cater strictly (or nearly strictly) to adventure game players and those games rarely make it here to the BF site. Have you checked out any of those game sites? You can use more than one gaming portal/site to suit your needs if one site isn't making you happy. You should contact one of the people who do those group plays of Adventure games (like Popla) and see if she can recommend some other sites to you. I hope you have good luck finding some adventure games that you like.

Oh, I am sure you weren't dreaming, Rebeca_Lily. LOL But it seems that you are the lucky one who were chosen to get... ummm... what was that actually you got? An extra punch? Sorry... LOL

ETA: Hold on... did you buy games on the weekend, and only received your extra punches today, perhaps? I received mine on Monday.

This is a great game from Blue Tea. the only reason that almost kept me from buying the game was the morphs, the last MCF really burnt me out on those silly morps, almost like spot the difference does, but hopfully maybe they can be ignored in this game. Otherwise, I like the game and its a buy for me

I second the motion on Adventure games, love them, love them, love them. Wonder if there are any adventure games left or are they all being turned into Hos. sigh.

I am so, so disappointed that this game isn't a FROG. They are my favorite, a sure buy for me. We get so few of them, and I was really anticipating this game, and now I don't even want to buy it.

Sorry, Valdy. I hadn't seen that you'd had the discussion about the spelling already. I've removed my post.
