Hi again Fishies!

Just adding 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 as well.

This is a Free to Play game similar to "Found" being a hidden object game but it seems a lot more involved. The objects are quite small but you have a magnifying glass and plenty of time to find stuff.

There is a social aspect... ie a Friends function where you can gift things to each other. Also you can message your friends

There are game quests and also daily quests. You assemble collections, banish ghosts, play mini games involving runes and help creatures.

You are rewarded with coins, diamonds, experience points and other stuff for the amount of time you stay online, starting at 1 minute up to 12 hours.

I am really enjoying it although I haven't really a clue what I'm doing but as I have been playing for about 3 hours and haven't spent any real money, I'm having a ball regardless

Have a try... you might really like it

Ooops forgot to add that it also goes into fullscreen with a button in the upper right corner.

I, too, found this game and am enjoying it. Cannot figure out all aspects yet, but that's part of its charm. The background music is not bad, and there is a story line of sorts. There are areas that take you to types of mini-games, and ways of going to other areas as you advance. Items that you look for are tiny, but they are findable.

Just started playing and like the game but am a bit frustrated. Glad there's a forum to ask questions etc. Will see if I can find some answers now. It's kind of addicting.

In the collection of icons in the bottom right hand corner, there is a social icon,it looks like a person. Click on that, then select the tab to invite neighbours. You can then invite up to ten neighbours a day. The list refreshes every 24 hours Also check to see if you have received any invitations.

Good luck, though, I have been playing ten days and have only one neighbour, who is asleep. Unfortunately you cannot invite specific people to be your neighbour, only random ones....

I agree with much that has already been said above. This game starts out being a lot of fun, and it could continue to be that, but parts of it either aren't working well, or were designed to discourage people who won't spend cash to solve the problems.

The system for finding friends is flawed, it gives you 10 random people per day to invite as friends, but they are all new and almost all of them never come back. If the 'random' players were closer to the level of the person looking for friends this would work much better.

Ghosts of various types appear every so often. You can clear them by exploring the area with them making life difficult for you (often not worth doing), or you can use an item to chase them off. The items are rarely available free, and if you don't buy gems the ghosts just keep accumulating until it becomes impossible to do your 'quests'.

There is an area for combat against other players, solo or teams. This doesn't work because no one is ever there to fight against. So people give up checking. It might help if the area is seeded with opponents; perhaps give people diamonds to spend an hour a day fighting all comers.

Not So Much Fun

[Post New]by mrssharon on Sep 13, 13 8:31 AM
I have been playing this game by going to the Online Games tab. I don't get why BF wants us to download it to our game managers other than to encourage the spending of money.

I do like the game and have gotten quite far just playing it free. My gameplay can last an hour or just a few minutes depending on how difficult it is to find objects and how fast I use up my "energy". So far I have encountered Shadow, Night, Search, Jumbled Words, and one that turns everything either upside down or reversed, just can't recall what it's named. So there is a bit of challenge there.

I have invited the people shown at the bottom to be my "neighbors" and so far have no responses. What's up with that? I keep a clean yard and tidy house. And the only person who I can "visit" is generated by the game.

I truly hate to see games like this offered as our TGT. It just promotes addictive spending, in my opinion.

So even though I like this game, I don't want to see it (or any other Free to Play game) offered this way and I can't recommend a game that promotes this kind of spending.

I'm disappointed in games that lead you on with Free play and then nickel and dime you to death in order to keep going. If this is the new norm for BFG then I'll go somewhere else. They aren't the only fish in the sea. I'd rather just pay for a game and be done with it.

I agree 100%. If BFG wants to add a separate line of Free To Play games for those who want that kind of thing, I have no problem with it. But I have not been happy that they insist on "integrating" the Free To Play games in with the PC-games-to-BUY here on this web page. Each time a Free To Play is offered on this page, it means there is one less feature game from which to choose for those of us who opened accounts here to purchase games. I feel the Free To Play games should have a separate web page that offers only that kind of game. Those who like both options could simply move between the two web pages to take advantage of ones they like from both genres.

Just my opinion.

I have not looked at BF for a long time, having got fed up with the Casino forced DL and the direction BF seems to be taken. My cousin downloaded this game and then called me to play along with her, so I downloaded it. Then we see you can't request anyone specific to "befriend" you, so we can't play together. Thats fine. We both played for about a day and then came to the point where it seems if you dont spend actual real $ the game becomes hopelessly mired in ghosts and impossible obstacles you cant really get out of unless you pay $. To me, this is not offering a "game" to all the players here. It's offering pay-to-play games and not anything exciting on top of it. Seriously, BF dont you read the forums and see how many people cant even buy a CE due to lack of funds, and they save up to get these special games? And now for $80 you can play this one or for $50 you can play Casino. Perhaps all these Pay To Play games or games that cost actual money should be put in their own category so that we can avoid those and can actually go back to getting decent games. I'm not spending $ on a game just to spend more money - nothing is worth that. This game is not terrifically fun, leaves much in the way of instructions on how to play, and for the $ I can go buy 2 years of a subscrition to game sites with actual people and tons of games. I am very sad, again, yet..that BF even has these type of games. It is tacky and for 'upgrades" people can buy many SE games or go buy a CD ROM game at a store.

Terrible trend, this is, for BFG to offer games whereas you have to PAY to continue playing.

The game should be titled, 'Rooms of Money' instead of "Memory"... the money we will end up spending if this trend continues, that is ~ ha!

One can buy a multiple player game CD at the store and be done with it... no need for this continuing to have to plunk out real dollars for fake items and a 'privilege' to play.

I am sad BFG is doing this... and why should I have these "FREE" games on my game manager... that was NOT part of MY part of the agreement when I signed up for BFG!

Here we go again with a nother way to get money - you say it's free really if you want to have the whole experience you have to pay out with your money sho in the long run this game isn't free. False AD you can keep it. I just read some of the other reviews & I see they feel the way I do.

Why don't you put this type of game on a different site for those people have the money to waste. I feell that I spend enough on the games we have here & usually I buy the CE addition only.

I am not a happy gamer with this turn of events. You will be loosing a few players if you keep this up. I rate with only 3-stars on when you did have 5.

Well. I am still enjoying this game. I have been playing for twenty days now.

So long as you take it slow & are prepared to wait for your energy to replenish before you can play again, there is no real pressure to spend money. Every day you log in, there are rewards of gold coins, crystals and energy. The first ten rewards kept me going long enough to be hooked on the game.

Some of the tasks set are quite obscure & it can be hard to see the point of some of the artifacts that need to be created. There are a vast number of them.

My only criticism would be, that as you progress through the levels, with more objects to find in each room, with less time, some of the objects, due to their nature, become ridiculously difficult to find which makes the game a little less enjoyable.
