I played the trial without any problems. When the trial was up, I bought the game. After I downloaded the game and unlocking it, I went back in to play and it opened up in the backyard. I tried clicking on going to the shop and go back to the game. Neither works. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still the same thing. I can't play the game. Every time I close out the game and reopen it the same thing happens. It opens up in the backyard and I can't do anything.

Is anyone else having trouble manipulating the puzzles? The pieces just will not move. Every now and again a square (or number, etc) will move for me, but it is very sporadic. They just seem to lock up. Very frustrating and the skip button takes FOREVER. I'm afraid this will have to be a no-buy for me if I can't do the puzzles and I have to wait so long to skip them.

dbendr wrote:Yes, most of Chapter 6 as shown in part 10 of the YouTube walkthrough is missing. The game skips from climbing out of the labyrinth to the scene with the two story house with the boy and villain swapping places.

The scenes with the father are gone, and the map shows no active or visitable areas.

By consulting the journal, forum topics here and a lot of trial and error, I managed to make use of the matches and get the vortex activated and in place. Also a dog showed up. I'm down to two inventory items and four gizmos. I'm stuck.

Please give us the rest of Chapter Six. A non-video walkthrough would be nice as well.

I also haven't been able to get any of my shop purchases to show up in the back garden. I skipped the tutorial so I don't know whether this is a bug or not."

I used most of this quote as it applied to my experience with the game, except for the last part where the quotes, puns and poems were totally lost because the sound was so lousy.... yikes!
I run windows pc 7 and it totally skipped chapter 6....so it's definitely a glitch with the game not the operating systems. what a waste of a good credit. :p

My curser keeps locking up in the scenes.

YES, I have changed the battery and it is a new mouse!

Anyone else have this problem?

uninstalled and reinstalled, seems to be working better.

edited for additional comment


The same thing is happening to me with the curser locking up.


Same problem. Lucky I haven´t bought it yet, but would have, if it had no glitshes.

Do you think they will come out with a patch for this game for the problem of it locking up on us?

I really wanted to play this game, so I went ahead and purchased with the hope the freezing wouldn't continue. BUT...it did!

So, I am out the game and uninstalled it from my game manager.

My actual question is, should I put it back on my game manager in case they do come out with a fix? That way I might be notified that they did, correct?

My winding key for the toy carousel doesn't work. I was able to set it on the table and put the winding key in the slot on the carousel and even turn it, but that's all. I turn it over and over but nothing happens. Any ideas?

I have the PC version of the game. I'm having the same problem with the items on the table in the cafe - the ring, keys, scissors and picture do not move, so it's impossible to solve the puzzle. Much to my amusement, I noticed that the person who made the 'video walkthrough' hit the skip button for this puzzle, lol!
I froze the frame with the correctly sorted tables, but can't move some of the items to make it match.

I hope there will be a patch for this! Otherwise, the game is very amusing and witty.

I love this game but once I get to the throne room and up through the roof, I end up on a house with a good and bad guy and can't do anything to move further??

Exactly the same thing here! Annoying because the Chapter VI is lost apart from the very last scene.
So please fix it or refund it!
A game without an end isn´t worth the money.

Update/correction to my post above, where I state I could not solve the table puzzle and had to skip it. I looked carefully at the tables (after skipping) and noted down what was on each table. The pieces that cannot move, (which are moveable in the walkthrough video) are already correctly placed. I started a new game, placed the pieces as per my notes, and the puzzle worked! So it *can* be solved after all.

i need to get the sand out of the hourglass.. i think but for some reason the slingshot with the pebble won't leave the screen.. it just stays at the ready..but wont shoot and it won't go back into inventory. if i move to another room.. the slingshot comes with me.
am i enjoying a glitch ?
frustrating because i've made it to this point and can't progress.
