Liked the first of the game but my cursor got stuck and almost crashes the game? Wonder if they will have a fix for us Vista users?

As I said earlier in this thread, it runs ok for me and I bought it, I am also on Vista 32 bit. Very strange

Tried this; but had problem with cursor; slowed down and wandered. The games were OK but the bing each time I clicked would have driven me mad unless the sound was turned off.

Hi all,

Now that this game has a forum of its own, I'm just popping in to move this thread.

Cheers!

As mention by some this is a good brain training game. I like it. Got to keep the old brain working LOL.

I enjoyed this one, and surprisingly it worked fine on my antiquated and graphics-handicapped laptop.

A few quibbles:

I'd like to be able to click through the confetti without waiting 30 seconds for it to disappear on its own.

Having to click through two screens (stats and start of next puzzle) after each short game broke up the game too much. I like a game that flows a bit more seamlessly.

Sparkles. What is it with sparkles? These are beginning to show up in nearly every game recently, and they really tax graphics cards, all for no good reason. Lose the sparkles and more people will have less trouble playing these games!

Other than these things, I like the different puzzles and varied gameplay here. A bit of a different take on the genre without being a total departure.

A fun game, nice and very different, sometimes very easy, sometimes not so easy - colorful graphics (love the sparkles, too!), good sounds....runs perfectly on our XP. We'll buy it!

Not good. Got to the "click here" for the pirate and the game hung up. Happened each time.

i cant even play it!!! i downloaded it but every single time i launch the game it crashes and gives me a not responding error message. too bad too cuz it sounds fun. this is the first game ive had problems with-- my mom has an older computer running windows xp and shes always getting error problems.

oh well ... i dont blame the problem on big fish but perhaps the developers? perhaps i need a better graphics card? maybe i should be saving up for a nicer gaming card than spending my $$$ on games i cant play!!!

This is one of the few games that has had really cheesy graphics and audio but surprisingly enjoyable game play. The story was pretty weak too, but somehow it didn't affect the quality of the game play.

The puzzles get harder the longer you play, so if you only played one level, you only got the ridiculously easy games and missed out on the greater part of the challenge of this game.

I really enjoyed the coin slot extras even though they were kind of silly sometimes, with sparkles and animal noises for a single level. I probably spent as much time opening fortune cookies and buying the extras as I did in actual game play.

The game is surprisingly long, and extremely challenging at the end. If you don't like brain teasers, you won't like this game.

I've already posted twice in this forum about the game but I am compelled to do so again because...I'm just having so much fun with it! I love the little extra's, like the slot option where you can earn extra time or hints by playing mini-games; the cute part is sometimes you get a fortune cookie or a music bonus that offers a different track to play by till the next game is completed. I was really getting bored with IHOG's and the like, and needed something different; this was IT! Get it for 2.99 while you can
