Ok I hate it when LF games dont have a trial! BUT i did find one elsewhere...To anwser some of the questions...

Yes its a 360 game...BUT although i get easily dizzy if i take my time on this one i dont feel that bad...

So far I have played a half hour and Im Loving it! The Graphics are So real...And i like the story line...The puzzles are not that easy to figure out...so im likeing the challenge thus far!

Unless you like games that are like this then dont waste your credit...TRY THE DEMO FIRST!

I have Vista, game works great, but very dark. Had to pixel hunt for bowl to give cat milk. Also, could not find hints for music in dove cote, had to go to walkthrough. All in all a very nice game. Any idea where to get more money? lol, spent mine willy nilly.

I haven't tried this game yet,but intend to,just thought I'd jump in and say that I too had trouble with feeling dizzy and disoriented 'coz the scenes 'flew' by so quickly (the 360º thing),it was esp bad in Nancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor,but I stuck with it and I'm now enjoying a whole new series of games.

The Secrets of Da Vinci was a great game. Many hours of fun. The puzzles were great the story line was interesting. I really enjoyed the graphics. This game I highly recommend if you are into seek and find adventure games. Play in slow mod if you are the type that gets dizzy. Best 6.99 I have spent in a long time. Thanks Big Fish

Hi MunchkinGoddess,

I'm sorry that we aren't able to offer a trial for this large file game, but you can always use the suggestions from our review of the game or the reviews posted up by our other users.

Also, I have removed both of the links from your posts for you since we only allow links to our Big Fish Games websites here in the forums, per our FAQ. Just a heads up!

Happy gaming!

Hi,I am relatively new to gaming but I am really finding this game difficult I literally dont have a clue what I am doing as there doesnt seem to be any instructions/game plan at the start.

I can't get this game beyond the Big Fish logo at the opening. It freezes and goes a bit weird flashing all over the logo page. BF hasn't given me a response, anybody know what's wrong?

Chizza, try hitting the green envelope towards the bottom right (but check the time, support's not on 24/7) and ask your question there. Putting a tech support question in the "Comments and Review" section will delay the response (or it might get missed completely).

rory88, I believe there is already a walkthough posted for this game; the best way to ask questions is not in the "Comments and Review" section, but out in the main forum. Give your subject a specific heading and then go into detail in the message. There are lots of people on the forums who will help and you may even find the answer already posted. Oh, and most adventure games just kind of toss you in with no instruction...that's what makes them an adventure!

Edited: Yep, the walkthough is here: http://www.bigfishgames.com/blog/the-secrets-of-da-vinci-walkthrough/

(you can also get to it from the first page of the forum)

I bought the game and after waiting forever for it to download I am not able to play it because when it pops up on my monitor it is off to the right hand side of the monitor and I can only see about half of the game. This has happened to me with other games and I have always been able to change from "full screen" and been able to play but that is not an option with this game. Any suggestions? Or do I have to just delete it from my PC and lose the credit I bought?

(first of all there was a savegame already from somewhere 2008 pretty odd when buying this game just as it appeared on )

Pretty good game with wonderfull graphics. The start of the game is very dark, but that's just because it is night. After completing your first task, Valdo goes to sleep and awakes the next morning. From this point on the game is bright.

It's very great to be able to play different scenarios. By now I have played the game 3 times in a row. The first time just to get to the end, the second time as an angel and did only the good things, the third time as devilish as possible. Each time the game was slightly different from the other.

Overall worth of the credit for sure.

I so love this game and want to finish it. But...it just won't let me get past Saturnini's door being closed. Even on my son's gaming computer, with the best of graphics and video cards, the door still isn't open. I've also had issue with the disappearence of items, or pages in the journal.

Uninstalling and reinstalling did correct some of this, but not the closed door issue, on the newest redownload.

I did write to tech support but I'm beginning to believe these problems could be in the download of the game itself. When downloading on my son's computer it paused to validate 13 times. I'm no techie, but I think it's cutting parts out when it does that. Many others are having the same issues, and the door being open to obtain the fountain mech just isn't. Therefore, this is not a video or graphics card issue, but must be a download problem. What do you think?

The graphics are really good and so lovely. I truly hate not to be able to finish it. It's so sad.

I like this game so far. The storyline is good, the graphics are great. I'm trying to keep a balance between my "angel and devil" meter..LOL. It's not easy! I suppose the gameplay is fairly simple. Sometimes I just like to wander around outside

After I gave Saturnin the brandy that was distilled from white wine he fell asleep, (that was the second dose). So I retreived the telescope lenses along with the coins I'd given him -in fact, I took everything that wasn't nailed down..LOL

I'm enjoying it so far and think I'm close to finishing.

It was a bit tricky at first and have had to use the walk through a couple of times. My favorite part is when I go to the pigeon building as my cat just freaks out! She runs around looking for the pigeons and she stares at my computer trying to figure out where they are. It was well worth the $6.99 just to watch her go nuts!

Ok. Maybe I'm a little slow. I have gotten to the part of the game where I need to go talk to the chick in the study (it's daylight outside) but can't find my way back into the study. Help

I started playing this game but I am having trouble getting it to respond when I want to pick something up, go in a new direction, etc. The mouse responds but when I click to pick something up for instance, I have to keep clicking over and over until it finally "gets" it and responds to my command. Is this a prob. with vista? I have always used XP in the past and never had this trouble with large file games. Is there a fix for this? I grow impatient with having to click over and over to get the game to respond and give up...
