Ditto to what all have said.
All I can say is annoying.
I usually at least play the hour even if it's a lousy but 20 minutes is all I could stand and that was too long.
Objects way to small, doesn't go into full screen (black bars on the sides) and I won't even mention the sparkles,

I'm trying to figure out who the devs meant as their target audience for this game. For adults, you really don't even need to look at the lists or solve riddles to know what to click. I was thinking kids w/ the sparklies, but it kept switching back n forth bwtn HOs, broken bits, & some really dark screens, so then I thought kids might get easily frustrated w/ this & indeed play Find the Sparkles or shut it off.

It's a shame b/c it does look like a lot of effort was put into this w/ all original graphix (which were pretty good drawings) & doing a decent job w/ storyline, & at the most it might appeal to teenagers who are into mythology. It's too EZ for adults & too hard for younger kids even w/ the sparklies. It was a nice concept but I think poorly executed & not likely to appeal to a wide audience.

I think they have their Arabian Nights mixed up as well....wasn't it Scheherazade who had the 1001 nights, not Sinbad? (And that extra D irked me throughout LOL)

Taking too long to download.
After reading the comments here, I trust that this game is an embarrasment to BFG's standards. Yes, lately it hasn't been too good.
Not going to bother downloading this.

I agree with all; twinkles, too little objects,etc; but didn't anyone else have letters missing throughout the dialogue? Where's the QC? I wouldn't even let my grandsons (better at hidden object games than I am) play this 'cause they're in Kdg, 2nd & 3rd, the spelling problems would drive them crazy.

I tried this game a while back at another site, and remember that some of the objects were too tiny for me to find. I don't remember sparkles telling me where an object was, that would have helped. Don't think I will even demo this one again.

I haven't tried this game yet and, based on the comments so far, I am not going to like it! However, I wanted to chime in as someone who agrees the choice of games this past week is really poor. It is the worst week I can remember. Sales must be hurting.

Totally appalled by this game. I won't repeat everything already said, but it was a total waste of my time. I kept with it through the whole demo thinking it would get better. NOT Anyone who hasn't played Green Moon yet should go try that one. I am totally enjoying it. Please give us more good HOGs BFG.

I have made posts in the past about my pet peeve--the inability to turn off those auto-hints in games like Unwell Mel, Mary Ann, Fishdom, Liong, and others. I want to be left alone to go at my own pace and to get help only when I ask for it. This game takes my complaint to a whole new level. Nomatt was exactly right when he/she said "Why not just include a Game Over, Well Done button at the bottom of each screen."

If you don't click on the item that is sparkling, it will continue to show that item. Just let it - and find everything else on the list. That way you get to find the items instead of chasing the sparkle around the screen.

Twinkles aside - does this game come with a magnifying glass?

I have to agree with the opinion that this game is a lot less than it could be. I felt like it really wasn't worth playing. Small Objects - they must think we have eagle eyes. Sparkles - with hardly any time to find what you are looking for. I didn't even finish the demo. That is too bad because at first I thought it would be a good game. I have to add a hardy

I love this game. As noted above, twinkles can be turned off. It's a challenge to play and great story.

Thank you all for sparing me the hassle of downloading/uninstalling.

I also agree with the statements regarding the lack of good games lately.

It could be a good game but i really hate auto hint. i won't buy this game, it's cool graphic, and some nice scene with riddle but i can't play a game which play by itself!!

You guys have sure saved me some $$ this month - the Forum is great for reviews and I haven't found anything that has made the grade.
