My review after 1 hour demo:

Level: Easy to Medium. Not too hard to follow, but may frustrate a child or a beginner or someone who just wants a basic HOG.

Playability: Good. No loading or playing problems. Tutorials are good and can be turned off if desired.

Hints: You get 3 to start, then can either buy hints at the store or get free hints by clicking on the little character that pops up around the screen.

Clicking penalty: Screen will go into "flashlight mode" (everything dark except where your cursor is) for a while. The more you click, the longer the wait for the light to return.

Likes: Cute character runs across the screen to show you where items are when you click on a hint. Interesting story line, but it can also be skipped if you wish. Can skip mini games if you purchase a hammer from the store. Other help items can be purchased as well. Can go back to Map to play other rooms if you get stuck in one.

Dislikes: Would like to be able to earn more free hints.

Recommendations: You have to play through each level of the story to move on. If you don't like HOG that include clues and adventures, you may not like this game. However, it would be good for those who would like a little more variety in HOG, but something not too difficult. Stop and read all the hints when they pop up on your screen.

Will I buy it? Maybe. I found myself wanting to go on and do more I have more likes than dislikes for this game.

Help anyone know what's up with that?


I believe your 60 minutes starts as soon as it is installed into the BF Games "My Games" file, not when you start playing. This has happened to me, too - learned the hard way.

I liked the first game and I liked this one, too. Great graphics? No. Unique game play? No. Highly memorable? No. But still quite fun. And I, too, love seeing Wipi... it just adds to the fun for some reason. They are on the right track with the interactivity and basic concepts of these games. It would be awesome if they updated their graphics. But definitely a buy for me because I'm a shameless HOG addict.

No, that's not right. I have downloaded a game to demo and had it in "My Games" file for days before I actually demo'd the game and my 60 minutes did not begin until I actually tried the game. I still have several game demo's with 22 and 6 minutes left on the demo and they don't lose any time just because they are in "My Games" file. There has to be another explanation.

Good, solid HOG with different things to do. I like when they mix it up with the objects to find (some are individual objects...some find 10 of these) and also like that you have to interact with some of the scenes to find everything. Might not be the best in graphics or difficulty, but I thought it was a good game.

Ditto other favorable reviews. My additions are: I played 2-worlds and was just started the 3-world, Paris, so it looks like the game has some play value. Not a difficult game. I would give it an easy-medium. I nice change from the more challenging HOGs. At the end of the 60 minute demo, I wanted more, so I'm of to purchase the game. 4- out of 5.

Hi, all! I am having a problem with one of the mini games. What is one supposed to do with the scale, sand, and sand vases? I can't seem to get anything to move beyond putting one of the vases on a post, and don't have enough to buy a hammer and skip. Thanks!

For those sitting on the fence as to whether or not to buy this game - it is a good game. It is worth the money. Enjoy

Great game. Plenty of twists and turns. Keeps the brain working. The trial time just disappeared. Will buy this one.

Can anyone help me, have got to World 5, where you have to click on the stones above the door, also do not have a machette to get into the bushes, I am assuming once you have clicked on the stones in the correct order you will get one. All help appreciated. (What order do you click on the stones?)

Me too Corie, I've still got 7 minutes left on quite a few games. Dunno what happened this time.

My other question is. . . where is the first game in this series? It would be good to start at the beginning if possible.

I got bleeped!!! I can't imagine what I could have said that got me bleeped! I don't swear! Honest!

This is a solid Hog-game, not great, not bad. But I won`t purchase it, because there are so much better games out.

After playing the demo and reading the reviews, I decided to purchase this game. At first I got lost with what to do regarding the interactive items. Then when I got to the sunken ship, I apparently drowned right away. lol. I went back and started over and realized I needed to save the coins I found to purchase items from the store to use later on. I also found the blog walkthrough very helpful. What I discovered was a fun game that offers challenge, generous hints, and lots of game play. This is quite a long game, which I consider a bonus. You have the option of skipping any mini games, provided you purchase the correct item from the store. The graphics are fairly good, I would not say crystal clear, however you still manage to get through with minimal difficulty. I consider this a game that's hard to put down, so I have to give it a big Thumbs Up!

How did everyone get passed the aligning of the disc after the ship wreck. I have done everything and it looks right, everything is aligned but it just sits there.
