Hi Fishies,

I just wanted to add to the OP: This thread has been reserved for reviews only.

If you have any questions about someone else’s review (even if you feel that their review contains incorrect details about this game) please contact that user directly via PM instead of replying to or quoting their post as this can develop into a discussion that is not suitable to the review thread.

While the reviews in this thread are first and foremost helpful to other players, they also tell us and all who were involved in making this game, what you liked/disliked most, what you’d like to see more/less of in future games, etc. This can only help us in continuing to provide better games, which is what we all want!

We want to ensure that everyone who visits this thread can easily find the reviews that they’re looking for, so the Moderation Team will be proactively removing any off-topic posts (i.e. non-reviews) that pop up in this thread.

For any non-review related posts, please feel free to create a "Comments" thread in this Game Forum if there isn't one already. You can always create a new thread for any game questions or tips.

Thank you!

i bought this after watching the trailer on youtube, it has such an engaging look about it
this game has really great graphics, comic style, with gorgeous colours and it is very light and has clearly defined objects.
it is very funny, i really appreciate the humour
it is more like adventure lite rather than a hopa, a style that i really enjoy
there is a map, but unfortunately it is not interactive, however it is still very useful and with 500 locations, it is certainly proving to be very useful!
the gameplay is not linear, you have to do things and find things for different people but it seems you can gather whatever you find on the way and have an unlimited inventory, and discover new tasks and complete the tasks in whichever order you happen to come across them and have the necessary items to be able to complete them.
i am totally loving this game! nice one devs!

I played this on another site and I'm so glad BFG has it!!!

Yes, the humor can get a little low-brow but it is really Monty Python-esque fun!

Nice change from creepy chasing evil games. It is so darn funny that I laughed most of the way thru it.

Lots of collecting alot of inventory and wandering from place to place helping silly people for money. Lots of wacky characters and their zany problems with improbable solutions, this game is VERY FUNNY!!!!

Also, to speed up transit time, check out the under city transportation system. You just enter almost any house or apartment to receive quests.

Puzzles are crazy like a jigsaw puzzle with extra pieces.

It's just for fun and I loved it!

P.S. I bought it right away here on good ol' BFG! Thanks, BFG and devs!!!

Oh, what a fun and entertaining game this is. And it's a soft release at that.

I just love the interaction, having to go shopping, doing things for other people to get on in the game, and you get HOS thrown in as well.

Lovely graphics, and lovely animation. This is an instant buy for me.

Yep, the game is super fun and original. I've accidently found a promo video on youtube, then downloaded from dev portal. And I'm glad I found it. I've completed the game twice.

Love this game. Really funny and totally engrossing. Exploring a town and doing little 'quests' for the people. It's very easy to get lost, so the map is a big help.

This game is a Buy for me. I'm mostly into LFA games, but I watched this on u tube and I had a huge grin all the way thru. Even the music made me smile. Great animation, graphics, color and hilarious to boot ! So funny. Lots of fun.

Totally different from anything I've ever played. The map takes some getting used to but overall it's super fun. You basically have to complete silly little tasks for strange people and simple puzzles and HOG's to earn money. Awesome

Sorry forgot the review this is a fun quirky game with lots of characters and lots to do with H.O.s, random objects, occasional puzzling with a lot of travelling. On my list to buy.

Very unique and original game! Judging from the map, this game could take some time to finish. I was surprised to see you have to save, just like in other LFG's. There are many locations and tasks to perform. I've laughed, snickered, chuckled and smiled numerous times. Very cute and fun game. The different apartment addresses ("square root of 81" on the scientist's apartment, lol) doorbells and ringers are funny, as well as the characters. Amusing tasks, chores and gaming puzzles. Thanks BFG, this is a delightful game.

This is a fun and strange game. Definately on my to buy list. You wander around and pick up things that may be used for tasks later on. Almost everyone you meet has a task to perform. I did notice that whenever I received a new task the word "saved" flashed on the screen. I am hoping that means that it does save at intervals on its own.

Based on the map and the many characters you meet this looks like it is a very long game that can be played now and then.

The characters are fun and some had me laughing right out loud.

I bought this one from the devs, and had a ball with it. It is fun and quirky, and lots of humor. Whatever you do, do not go to the island though, until you have found all of the items. I had missed some and went to the island and then couldn't get back. Then my grandsons came over, and I knew they would love it, so we played it again, and between the three of us, we found everything and went to the island, and found where we needed to go by accident, lol. Really a different game, and I give high marks to the devs. Yes, there are fart jokes, and bathroom humor, and the boys and I laughed ourselves silly, and had a great time. It is a long game, and there is so much to see and do, and some things aren't apparent the first time you visit a scene, but later on you think back and remember, and voila, find your way back there, and you got it. Almost everything you see plays a part at some time or another, clues everywhere. Fun, fun, fun. More please!

eta: in the beginning you worry about not having enough money, but it adds up and you find plenty. Finding and figuring out all the codes for the lockers is a lot of fun.

Guess if you like running here and there and don't know what the heck you are doing, it's a great game for you. I just don't see the sense of it, a no buy for me.. Will check on the CE to see how that goes..
