Annabel is a rip-off

Do not buy this game people! It barely takes an hour, that is why there is no free trial as most people would finish it in an hour. Come on Big Fish, shame on you for charging people for this game.

Hi there!

Not sure why you thought there wasn't a free trial because there is. Actually, this game took me at least 3 hours to complete and probably more, and that was after I'd done an evaluation of it on another site which means that I went through the first parts of it faster since I'd done them before. I found that it went much further than I'd been able to go in the hour evaluation time, and I really enjoyed the game. I think it's a great game with a good variety of puzzles. I was really happy to see that BF offered this game as soon after it came out as they did.

I did 30 minutes of the free trial, but had to give up because the swinging around made me feel quite seasick! Shame, because it seemed a good game.

I really liked this game! I loved the different puzzles, and the art. Not a "rip off" for me.

I played it and loved it,I hope there will be another similar soon.I know there were quite a few that didn't care for it because of the movement,but I think it made it even better.

I have to agree with soosieray. I liked the game during the trial and bought it but it finished in an hour. A game that only goes an hour past the demo is not worth the money to me. So... warning, if you like adventure games and play them frequently, you may find this one too short.

soosieray, sorry you didn't like the game! I also did the eval at a different site and couldn't wait for the game to come out at BFG. I loved it...took me a lot longer than an hour to play, but I'm not always the fastest in the bunch!

I would not say its a "rip off", the only problem I have with it is that its too short.....Otherwise a cute game in all respects....

Although I did like the game it was too short . I will say it did take longer then an hour but still I guess the large file games have me a little spoiled, I expected to have more of a story line, or more adventure.

I thought this game was excellent its a refreshing twist on a hidden object game. I would have loved for it to go on and on, but overall i would by no means call it a rip off. thats my opinion anyway.

i loved the game. it took me a while becuase i sat down to play and had to run off suddenly. so hard to say how long it lasts. i also played the free trial version first. and i agree the swinging ground can make one sick, kinda like the old doom games. i could not play them at a certain time of the month made me sick. otherwise i loved the way this combined the adventure walking around and looking with a hidden object game.

I would not consider this game a rip-off, but it sure did not take as long as I had hoped. I finished in about 3 hours. So, yes, I was a little peeved that I paid $6.99 for a game that I finished so quickly. And to top it off, I was not able to activate the mini-games. Not sure why. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have been taken by to a room by two guards - Have climbed the ladder onto the roof where the guards are posted outside the door. I need to get off the roof, but the only clue I get is a room with an old man, but there is no dialog on how to get down off the roof and continue. I keep going down to the room and click on everything and on the roof too - but there is nothing to indicate how to continue. I'm stuck. Help please and thanks in advance.

Aren't all the games we like too short? Sorry you didn't like the game. It isn't my favorite, but sometimes I don't like to have to think too hard.

When you go down to the room (you need to remove the nails from the board on the roof so that you can access the room) click on the right arrow and then click on the old man. You will get a dialogue and then you will need to collect some fish hooks that are around the room and the roof.

If you have done this then you may have a glitch.
