Has the new version got more frogs?

[Post New]by nelliegemini on May 7, 14 12:09 AM
I was lucky and got the original, saved two frogs and then the game ended. Does the new version have 4 frogs to release?

I thought I would get it as an 'update' but there isn't one outstanding. Should I uninstall and reinstall?

It was such fun and such a good game I wanted to play it straight through again immediately after finishing (something I never do), but thought that I'd hang on for today just to see if those last jars can be filled.

I'm with you!
Would love to play more of the game if there is more.

Hopefully some one will let us know.

If there is I'm not sure if that means we have to buy again or will it update the game we already have???

Does this game today have a fix for the 'wandering curser', as mine is getting worse as I go on. I too would also like to know if there are anymore frogs.

I bought the game last week when it first came out but have only got two frogs so far,and according to the achievments I have 2/6 and 6/6. I hate to think we have been charged for only a third of a game.

Can I also ask why my post from last week was 176 and my post from today is still only 176? I don't seem to be making any progress and I can't be sure but I think the post before that was the same? I seem to be stuck at 176.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news - but NOPE, still only 2 frogs to save. I did not purchase (or demo) this last week, so I can't have an old version installed. I missed last weeks release all together, didn't know about it till I read it here.

Having said that, it is an absolutely adorable game on the very easy side. No walkthrough needed (before anyone asks.) But the achievement screen does leave us very confused. Room for four frogs and it was game over after only two frogs. The achievement screen also has arrows to scroll right/left. For what? Mine didn't scroll to anything. Although throughout the game I was told that I had earned several achievement of sorts.

I'm not sorry I bought the game, but it is a VERY short game. Finished it in a little over two hours and I am NOT the fastest player. Also glad that I got it for the sale price. Makes the length of the game a little easier to swallow.

There was a lot of speculation that they pulled the game last week because it wasn't the complete game. Can anyone verify that? I'm thinking it was never suppose to be a soft release, but a featured game. I would assume that effects the volume of sales.

happy gaming everyone,
KIW

Well that's a disappointment. It took me two days to play - I was having such fun I rationed it.

Is it the SE of a CE perhaps?

No nelliegemini, I don't think this was ever a CE. At least I can't find the title in their list of games - not even the version released today. But I guess the games are not in the lists until they are released to everyone not just members and for now it is still a TGT,

Yes I wondered if it was an SE too.
I remember seeing an extra green bubble in the title screen and wondered whether that would have been for extras/extra game play.
It's a bit of shame as so many people seem to like the game and we all wish there was more!!

It's all very strange - I can't understand why they put in teasers for more frogs when there are only two.

Grrrrrrrr

Thank you all for the information. I will still replay it, but with a heavier heart.

So there is more?! I'm so excited. I had bought it when it was first released. So if I re dl'd it, there will be 6 frogs now?

So sorry prchalpn and nelliegemini as I misspoke. There are only 2. I played the game when it first came out and had forgotten so when I went back I realized my mistake. Pleeeease forgive me.

As mentioned in other threads here in this forum as well:
Yes, this game is out today as Premium Edition respectively Platinum Edition at two other portals - their names for a Collector's Edition.

see f.e. the thread "The reason why there are only 2 princes to save and areas incomplete"

Big mistake by BFG, IMO - you bet that I bought the Platinum Edition.

Yep..finished the demo, and I guess that's the END of the BFG's version of this one! Seriously..this sucks lemons BFG!!

I loved this game, but I certainly have no need to buy it here, since I finished it! Not a happy camper. When all the whoop-de-doo was going on because they pulled the game, I said it was like a bait and switch but it was just the bait. Turns out there's no SWITCH either! Same game! Why did they even bother pulling it?

Not making enough money on your casino games to offer us a complete game?

I'd like to hear from Shaman Games about this too!

Hey Everyone,

I completely understand how frustrating it is to have a game that seems incomplete. I want to assure you we are looking into this. Once we know more, we'll let you all know as soon as we can.

Thank you for being so patient while we look into this!

So would I. We have bought one third of a game for the price of a full game. Why were we not told we were only buying part of a game, or are we buying it in installments. This is not good BF, at this rate you get 3 times the price for one game. I'm sickened, are you not making enough on your gambling games?

And they still hav'nt addressed the problem of the 'wandering curser'. So all in all not a good advert for you or Shaman. This has taken all the fun out of what would have been an awesome game. But now it's once bitten twice shy, I won't be had again! And to top it all off, tomorrow I will lose a CC because this game being on twice there probably won't be a HOG tomorrow now.

Well I've bought it elsewhere, especially since they have a sale on - luckily I only bought it here with a coupon.

Very interesting. I DL'd the "Premium Edition" to try. The illustration of the game title page said... COLLECTOR'S Edition. So it WAS supposed to be a CE. There is a bonus chapter and the usual extras (screenshots, wallpapers, music, concept art), and "Extras" is on the rock at the right. But there is no trophy in a bubble for achievements. Hmm. Odd. I have lots of coins there, so will just buy the premium game over there. Why not?

BFG, you stepped in it on this one!

Hi Khat, good to see you.

In the Platinum Edition the Extras are on a scroll on the left - ?
Anyway: animated screensavers! sooo funny!
