Has anyone finished this game? I'd like to know if it's long enough to be worthwhile. My mystery items did come into focus eventually, but it's another game that keeps crashing my computer........why is this??? I'm craving another good HO game, haven't had one in quite a while.

lynnie - did you try 3 Days: Zoo Mystery? I thought it was very good. Not a classic HO, some interactive stuff and lots of mini-games, but long and very good. Waaaaay better than this one.

Well we all know I'm an easy sale BUT junk is junk. There are plenty mediocre, nothing new HO games out there that at least have clean graphics, pleasant music and run correctly. I have always said I won't call a game "bad" unless it doesn't actually work right as someone always likes everything, but this doesn't work right and presents nothing special to offset what's wrong. So yep, on this one:

I only played the first HO scene so I cannot judge the whole game. As soon as I see fuzzy graphics thats it for me.

I've played about half of the demo and I am enjoying the game.

I like that when a hint is used, the object jumps out instead of being in a vague circle. I also like the ability to skip a mini-game.

I might have to try it since I haven't demo'd anything lately. Will give me something to do for an hour. And it is an HO, after all.

Started the demo, uninstalled it at the half hour. I think this game is good for kids, but for adults....forgive me, but it is quite boring, relaxed option does not work and in general not worth the price. But to those who like it, enjoy!

I just played the demo of Pretty in Pink. I really liked it. I played the Relaxed Mode. I also loved all of the mini games. Think I will be buying this one.

Anyone have a clue as to whether this is a long or short game?

it was kinda laggy for me.. the dialogues have a lot of mistakes too...Love the 80s feel. i hate the cooking game? when i make a mistake it said to try again yet it took a long time before i can try again.

Glitchy - Relaxed Mode fought me and special clothing item doesn't work, unless I'm supposed to find a hazy grey blob...? Cheesy music not remotely 80s like (I was young woman in 80s, had Madonna, Eurythmics and Prince posters on my wall, nuff said). Played abt 10 minutes of this junk and couldn't delete fast enough.



I agree. I really wanted it to be fun because I like John Hughes films and thought it was a great idea to do a game based on a movie. I just don't know how it all went so horribly awry. The characters don't resemble the actors, the sound effects are annoying and brash, the outfits you put on Andie just look bizarre (the long skirt is huge like she is wearing a tent), the dialogue panes are annoying and I just skip them as much as I can, the objects are repetitive, the music drove me nearly insane. I'm telling you I was a big new wave fan and I even got to see The Psychedelic Furs's Richard Butler perform in concert once and I was obsessed with Depeche Mode and all that but the music in the game was NOT good in any way. It grated on my nerves. I actually started to feel really anxious and antsy like restless when I was playing the game. I had to shut it off and uninstall it before I tore my hair out.

When I had the demo my sketchpad had options for the girl to wear now that I have the full version my sketchpad has no options, anyone know anything about this?
