Poodlebear, I'm jealous!! Wish I had as many games to still play as you do.


I still have 23 unfinished games to play! I haven't even finished Cate West yet.

I'm just so busy right now with all these kittens & cats, I don't have a lot of time. Once they are all placed in pet homes, I will be in HO Heaven. Plus, I keep playing Fishdom & 4 Elements over & over again. I'm addicted to them!


Wow!!!!!! I'd be obsessed with finishing them all. (I'm anal that way! ) I absolutely loved Cate West, so maybe I should play that one again. Haven't played Fishdom and just got through 4 elements. Also thinking about Saqqarah or however you spell it.

Do you rescue the cats or breed them? I have a housefull here so I understand how needy they can be sometimes. You get so used to them doing their own thing and all of a sudden they all need attention at the same time. I make them take numbers then!

This to me is an awesome game. Tried the demo and then bought. Alaware puts out excellent games and I always had excellent customer service there. I bought ME from them when it first came out, and there were glitches in that game and they sent me a fixed version of it and I didn't even ask. I always by their games either at full price or BFG Game Club. Thanks

Sassy

Played about 1/2 hour of the demo ... will save rest for later tonight. This one would be a nice addition for the Octoberfest!! Don't think it's as well done as Mortimer Beckett or Magic Encyclopedia but it was a fun demo.

Maybe that's a good thing scotcat, I looked of Alawar on yahoo's website and in big red letters in told me that it wasn't a safe site. Playfirst has it also.

It is odd, isn't it, that while some have issues with one site, others don't. Maybe our browser or individual software is part of the issue. Oh well, we just have to go with what works for us individually.

i have tried to download this from alawar onto my computer and my lap top.
the computer instals okay but then when i come to play it a message comes up saying problems and switches off
the lap top just wont let me down load at all
any help out there for a frustrated HO gamer.
the computer is Vista and the laptop windows xp
other wise might not be able to down load when it comes onto bigfish:0)

Hi Emma- I played the demo with Vista and no issues. Until Big Fish gets this one, you will have to check with Alawar.

Hey scotcat--I guess I'm in the minority with you. I don't seem to have any problems with iWin either. Though I tend to buy most of my games here at bfg, they do have alot of good specials on their steals and deals.

Ok, ty prpldva
You're welcome. I don't understand why the developers don't create a mac version at the same time. With the shortage of games for you guys, I'm sure they would get pounced on.
