Good Morning everybody

I just wanted to say I think this is EIPEX at their very best. after playing for just a few minutes I knew I would love this game. Then I saw the coach driver and he was the nutty gardener from Final Cut, and I loved that game too.

They obviously have different sets of developers as you see when watching the making of, and I wondered what happened to him. This set is simply the best.

The graphics are crystal clear, the cursor is so precise. Hidden objects are brilliant and the puzzles so far have been just right for me.

As I said I have only just started, but I felt I wanted to say how happy I am with this game.

I loved recognising the drunken sailor as a member of Eipix team too. Cool!

I think they may have started with just the one team, but they are producing games so fast now, I reckon they must have brought in others.

It used to be just Elephant and ERS who gave us game after game after game of top notch enjoyment, but they better keep their standards high, because Eipix is now a serious challenger!

edmee1947,

Is it something to do with their graphics? Because they look kinda weird on my pc, but not bad enough to stop playing them. I got the idea in my head that it's HD or something?

edmee I am so sorry you are having problems, like I said before the graphics are crystal clear and everything works fine.

What is actually wrong? Is there anything we can suggest to help, It is such a shame.

Linda

It could be the graphics. When I play this dev and the other two top makers, my video card fan is spinning like crazy. I'm afraid one of these days it will break. I got this video card about a year ago.

I didn't like the graphics much at all...
I mean they're fine, of course, but nothing great IMHO--and I have a high-end machine with super graphics card with HD--so all ran/displayed nicely etc, just I wasn't enthralled with the graphics style/appearance .

Great game! I much prefer this latest to the two previous games but that is just a personal quirk concerning time period setting. Graphics are super, music great, voice overs a hoot, the butler needs to be squashed like a cockroach, the Baron, well the moderators won't let me say what he is, and the wife is in BIG trouble, love the drama!

I'm with cbtx on this one I'm just loving the rollicking good time, tongue in cheek style of this game. They put their heads together, looked at games we love, and put a lot of those elements in their effort. Bravo! The drunken sailor is a hoot! Bad guys, a boy in jeopardy, a lady in distress, and a woman as the heroine(us). A fun pirate soap opera!
Too bad I'm not a rum drinker, or I'd have some with coke to do this game right! Somehow, a cold glass of white wine doesn't seem like the correct pirate drink. Maybe will do as a substitute?

This is a great game. I only have one complaint. I don't get to collect hints. What is the sense of allowing us to know that there is a hint card in every scene if we don't get to collect them. You can only have 8. I don't like that. I want to see how many I can collect.

The only two criticisms I have with this developer and this game is black bar tips on the hardest mode and the main game not coming to a conclusion. The bonus chapter is needed to get "the rest of the story." Other than this I thought this was a GREAT game but please stop this. A bonus chapter should be just that - A BONUS CHAPTER.

I was a bit fed up about this too. I really wanted to know if I had collected them all. I didn't realise they were hints..... thought they were like morphing objects and you had to collect them all.

Never mind the game was still brilliant.

Game is far too easy for experienced players because Eipex won't listen & get rid of the stupid blackbar tips & hints for hardest mode.
That persistent hand-holding wrecks challenge. Indeed, only difference btwn medium & hardest modes is hardest has no hints/skips. Both have blackbar texts & hints.
Many experienced players prefer for blackbar to only deliver story-relevant content, not any hints.
Please devs: stop this blackbar hints practice. In fact, why not modernize like other devs & let us customize?
