fortunately, though the game was cut short, they gave us enough time to decide it's a no buy for me. usually, though there may be things I don't like about a game, there are enough good points that I have to really think about it. This was a no go from the start Now I have to get some visine to soothe my eyes.

I also do not like being told I have to buy the game when only half through my 60 min.
The trial is a Sample Version. Time does not apply here and isn't mentioned. It stops at a fixed point however long it takes you to get there.

I had some left over credits at another site, so I bought this one last week, during the lull. It did get better as I played it and the ending left open the possibility for a sequel. I found it interesting enough that I would go for the sequel, but doubt that it will ever come out.

From the review thread -

Sample versions stop where the developers intend them to. How long it takes isn't relevant and time is not mentioned in the trial.

Unfortunately this is one game that the devs probably should have enabled a longer trial as I for one certainly needed more time to make up my mind as to whether it was going to be engaging enough to purchase it. A little time spent on the new job would have given me some inkling as to what adventures the heroine might have in the future.
As it stands, I think I'll be giving this game a miss .... I found it Dreary from the Past.

Didn't like this game at all. Didn't have any idea on what I was doing or where I was going. The HOG's were even something I haven't seen in awhile. Tomorrow is another day..

Well, I read the comments and I read the reviews and then I decided to read the Technical Issues thread.....I really do not think I will waste my precious download time on this one, sounds like something from five years ago and my tastes have definitely evolved since then! Eagerly looking forward to tomorrow.....

I agree with what everyone said, plus I feel this is a super touchy game. When you try to leave the arrow disp real quick, and you have to be right on the money to pick up an item in the HO's. The HINT button is useless.....................................I might pick up this game for a penny, thats all I'll pay...............I take that back, even that is to much. SHAME ON YOU BIG FISH this is not a game it's a joke....................................MY OPINION

I agree with you all. I wish I'd read your comments before I'd bought the game as well. It really was awful. Never mind, it just makes us appreciate the good ones, right?

You can only play for 60 minutes if the trial says so. More (most?) developers are providing sample versions these days instead.

Sums it up perfectly, angelofmusic62 - you're a poet and you don't know it (as we say in the UK).

Love it!

I played the free trial and thought it was okay, so I bought the game and for me it is a waste of money. Nothing seems to work. I can get to trying to fix the stool but I can only find the leg and scissors but then nothing. It looked like it was going to be a very interesting game.
