No matter what difficulty setting I select, the sparkles remain. Very frustrating!!! Mac OSX 10.9.5.

Playing on a PC, Windows 7, Home premium, 64 bit.

I read this thread before I played the demo, so I was thinking I'd be in the same boat with the other Windows 7 people.

Didn't have any problems whatsoever! What a surprise...

Nope, can't put the shears together either. I did find the half in the box first and tried to pick it up then. Couldn't pick it up. Then found the screwdriver, screw, and got the second half of the shears. Spent several minutes trying to put them together in the box. That doesn't work.

I was leaning toward buying this game, but until someone tells me how to get the shears together it's a no-buy for me.

OS X 10.8.5
2.66 GHz Intel Core i7
RAM 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

I can't even open the game and this is usually NO problem.
When I click on Play in the Game Manager, the popup with today's
deal comes up. When I click on NO THANKS or the x to dismiss it,
the game still doesn't start.

If most of us Mac users are having this much trouble even getting the game to open, it's a big problem that can't be fixed by rebooting, etc. It's a
developer issue.

I'm bummed, as now I must wait until you release another CE game so
that I can get a discount this weekend.

Update: 2/16

Ah, the problem for me, at least, is that my MBP is OS X 10.8, and the
requirements clearly state that only 10.9 and above are supported.
This is the first time I've encountered this. Good to know and I'll be
checking from now on.

Running on Mac El Capitan 10.11.3 and the game won't open for me either. Says I have run out of time. Kind of getting fed up with Games being published and they don't run. It is definitely a Developer Issue!! Now we will ever see a fix???? Doubt it.

Running on Mac 10.10.5. I'm in the tower (with glass tank and shark). I've gotten to the point where the elevator needs a button and the thing on the back wall needs a lever. There aren't any more options, and none of my inventory works. "Hints" just hisses at me and does nothing. I'm stuck. I restarted, etc. Nothing works.

Just went and tried again. Got it this time. I used the glove to get the blade, then went and grabbed the half out of the box. I do not have the screwdriver or screw in my inventory, and it worked. Maybe it will for others

I see that many others have had the same technical problem that I experienced. I am waiting for Big Fish to review the problem with this game and re-issue it without the bugs.

Running Windows 8.1. Game closed down a couple of times at the beginning, but cleared up after a few times. I've reached the end without any more problems, EXCEPT I have to get the net and my scissors have disappeared from my inventory. So now I can't finish the main game!!!

On a Mac El Capitan latest version - downloaded this game twice and it does not even open. I immediately get the error page to report problem to Apple. Is there going to be an update to fix this or do I have to contact support to get a refund???

Playing on Mac with el Capitan OS, was able to download the game and open it to play demo, but it's not displaying the full screen, only shows the lower left side of the screen, so cannot access right side of game at all past the inventory "lock".
