Lots of people have complained. One person said that rebooting her computer helped. If that doesn't help you, then contact customer support, and wait a few days. Odds are that there will be a bugfix release as soon as the developers figure out what the problem is.

This is the first day the game was released. Clearly there's a bug that wasn't spotted during the beta testing. I'm sure that the developers will fix it as soon as they figure out what the problem is.

Obviously a very talented shipwrecked singer

I just finished the trial and i had no problems. would like to know from any one who has bought the game if it is worth buying and how many chapters there are. i think i am on chapter 3 and just finished looking for the chess pieces when the game expired. I really enjoyed it and would like to buy it but would not be worth it if i was almost done.

I, too, only get a black screen when I start the game. This is the first time EVER a game from BFG has done this. ... tried reinstalling, rebooting, re-yelling at the computer...nothing works. Will try again in a few days, hopefully the bugs will be out of the download by then.

There are 6 chapters, each with 6 stages. The later chapters seemed to be a bit longer than the first ones. It took me about 4 hours to finish the first time. I'm enjoying my second pass, and about half the scenes/minigames have different goals, so the replay value is good.

I've bought it and thought it was well worth a credit. I haven't finished it yet so I can't tell you how many chapters there are although I do not think you are nearly done yet. Try reading the thread that has the most posts as someone might have mentioned it there. If not, try one of the others.

You don't have to light it. Just pick up the candle, then click the rope in the well.

Thank you!
I had clicked in the well a few times; I guess I didn't exactly touch the rope.

To swing the skeleton, click it. If you don't see what you need behind it, click the skeleton several times. Short clicks seem to work best, and dragging it doesn't seem to work at all.

I bought the game today and played it all the way through, it's definately worth it!! There are 6 chapters in the game with subchapters and mini games as well. You have the option to play relaxed or timed mode and you also eventually get the chance to skip the mini games. I only skipped 2, I guess I just didn't have the patience today. I am looking forward to playing the game again with timed mode and see how I do. You'll love this game if you are an HO junkie like most of us!!!

Please help!
I don't know what to do with the spear head and the broken dragon's egg.
How do I use them to get out of there?
Thanks!

Dig in the dirt with the spear head and you will find a dragons egg. I think it is on the lower right side. Good luck
