You are sooooo right Mr Russ.
I am looking forward to playing this game as I had a great time with the first one.
Cheers

[b]Dear friends,it is a wonderful puzzle & adventure game for those who like this genre.However,I like some HOGs too !The combination of all these can be found
in a lot of other games.
I tried it for 1/2 hour and decided i was not for my abilities !
Happy Weekend,

It's obvious that I can't buy the game, because my moves will be: collect-collet-collect-skip-skip-skip (puzzles)...

Long time I have thought how to satisfy all the players: if we are given lite adventure - to allow an option of skipping all the puzzles, and play some HOS instead - and if we are given HOPA, to skip all the HOS and play Puzzles instead.

The HOGers will be happy not to play the puzzles (if they want), and the Adventurers will be happy not to play the HOS.

Developers give the option to choose between Match-3 and HOS, why not choose between Puzzles and HOS?

Case closed - no more complaints!...

Happy gaming!

Hi there Zitulica,
This game might not be for everyone. I remember a lot of angst when the first one was released, but somehow a lot of us survived. No problems if it is not fun for you.
Hopefully Amarathine Voyage will be released tomorrow night and will be more to your preference. I personally am hoping that game will be at least as much fun as the first one from the devs.
Cheers.

I'm with you Pickles77,
didn't do anything for me at all,bit dark, bit grainy, puzzles drove me crazy, no hogs, and I just couldn't get the story. May be I need to go back and play the first one and then give it another go.

Don't feel badly Flower... I recently replayed the first one and I am still a bit confused about the story in this new game.

I like the way you worded that.

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but is this from the same game developers? I *adored* Witch's Prison - one of my first games here - but have been disappointed before when sequels changed devs. TIA!

Yes, still Ghost Ship (Tim). I think you'll love this one as well. Some of the responses to the misuse of inventory items are laugh-out-loud funny.

Fabulous! This is an instant buy without demo, as I too, loved The Witch's Prison. I have to finish the bonus for Surface, and then I can start on this game. Two great games, back to back. Doesn't get much better than this.

Back when I bought NA: Witch's Prison, I found my skill
level not up to the task and put it on the back burner to try at
a later date. When Hondo said this was coming, I dusted it
off and tried again and now I am loving it. Is it still hard for me?
You betcha. But now with some effort, I am able to play it, and
am currently in the middle of it. If this one continues in the
same vein, I do want it, but don't want to demo until I finish
the first one

If someone who liked the first, would let me know if this plays
in the same style, I'll buy it without demo and just continue on
when I finish the first one.

Just read this, and sorry if I'm rambling, it's just one of those
mornings.

I like this game, but the puzzles are terrible. I had to skip a lot.

Good idea! I enjoy HO's and some of the puzzles, but I find that some of the puzzles are too difficult, or I just plain don't like them. I would love to be able to switch back and forth from HOs to puzzles.

There is a recap of the whole story on the bedtable there is journal.

I bought this site unseen but it's the technical aspects of this game that is literally bugging me!

*I couldn't open the package with a knife until I opened the goldfish bowl thing with a key that had no relevance to it*

Sometimes clicking on an inventory item then where you want it (or vice versa) didn't work but eventually if I kept clicking on it long enough it did in other places it worked no problem. Sometimes the eye never showed up but just the use and it was hard to switch. I tried to look and use some inventory items in scenes which never worked the first time so never tried again only to find out it was like the spoiler and I should try it again.

I'm used to triggers but never like this, so small and even when I know what to do it won't let me but maybe the 5th time it will work.

Instant buy for me! Loved the first one and have been waiting for another one to come out from these Devs. Thanks so much Devs and Big Fish for bring it to us.

None at all. It's the sequel to Witch's Prison which had one ... sort of.
