Bonus Content?

Is it worth it? I like extra gameplay over the wallpapers, art, and music.

I don't usually buy CE's but since Vanishing Hitchhiker was one my favorite HOPA's, I'm tempted!!

Don't know if this will help you but I made it to the middle of page 12 of the SG at the end of the one hour demo. There are 37 pages in the SG for the main game and seven pages for the bonus play. So that makes me think that this is not more than a four hour game. Hope I'm completely wrong because I enjoyed the demo. I'm kind of a pokey player - try to get my money's worth by looking at and reading everything but I'm pretty fast with the HOS. Wish there was a better way than guesstimating the length.

Thanks! I'm a pokey player too (except for the HOS!) and for the same reasons. I don't understand the need to race through a game, unless it's really not a good one! Looks like this one will have an expanded conclusion like the last one did.

Okay, I must trial now. If anyone has played the game fully, please spill it!

I am at the same spot plus can't get the hatch up with the robe, do the radio. The torch is lite by a spark from some wires but can see them. There is a propane tank the hatch. Any ideas?

Having the same problem in the bonus chapter, it says to lite the torch on the sparkling wires but there is no sparkling wires on the outside wall of the light house ,all I have left in the inventory is the torch.

You should see them outside the front door on the left, but you have to fix the radio and send a message to the coast guard first.

I'm having the same problem with Bonus Chapter - no sparkles to light torch. Went to SG to make sure I didn't miss anything. Everything is done except to light torch and go on. Wondering if I should uninstall and then re-install.

Hi BetsLaw and welcome to the pond!
If you have fixed the radio already and sent the message to the coast guard, and all the lights have gone out, then I would try uninstalling and reinstalling. When I got to this part, something drastic happened as soon as I sent the radio message - and that's why the lights went out - the wires outside the front door were cut. Hope a reinstall works for you.

Also had the same problem, Went back to the radio, set the dials again, , pressed the button repeatedly until the conversation ended with the lights going out then was able to proceed. It took several tries and was about to give up when it finally worked!

I've spent a rather frustrating half hour trying to find the sparking wires both inside and outside (I already sent the radio message), and I can't find them. For one thing the SG seems to be out of whack or something because there seems to be no continuity to it. You have to figure it out yourself. So, what I've got left with is an unlit torch and a rope to tie onto that hatch cover to lift it (which isn't working, BTW) because I've been trying - along with trying to light the torch to get it to tie around the handle. I'm almost done with the game, so this is maddening.

I'm in the same boat. Everything was smooth til it came time to light the torch on nonexistent wires. You can't start only the bonus level over so I've played the whole game again trying to find the sparking wires. Without a lit torch, I can't get any farther. BOO!

I finally figured out,you must have dialogue, with the coast guard, by clicking comments below the dial, to activate the sparking electricity on the outside wall. The rest is cake.

I'm short one arrow tile for the pirate box. I've looked through the SG, but can't figure out where to find it. Does any one have a list of where they all are?

Hi valp10,
SPOILER ALERT
One tile is next to the bench on the LHS of the lighthouse and a second is in the crack on the RHS of the ferry landing.
Cheers

I think the Bonus Chapter is worth it...wow i don't know if it's because i am recovering from surgery and the meds or what Man i was really struggling surviving that chapter it was hard..least for me . Took me almost 2 hours to finish the bonus chapter just kept getting stuck and just plan lost on what i was or wasn't doing right...but it was sooo worth it and really fun and challenging
