Very short game

[Post New]by twilyght on Apr 26, 09 6:09 AM
This game is very short, I finished it during the hour trial with 11 minutes left. I used hints on a few times and skipped over the intro text. Also, the sounds in the mini games were annoying (especially the one with the blood cells... I ended up muting my computer to avoid it). Not worth the money IMO.

Yep I finished in demo mode too with 14 minutes to spare. I too skipped through the dialogue but still would have finished before time ran out if I had read it all.

Thought it was going to be a top notch game and was astounded when it finished!

Way to short and not worth paying any money for. Disappointing!!

I also beat the game in under an hour. I really don't think this game is worth spending any money on because it's too easy and not very exciting. What a bummer.

Glad to "hear" that I'm not the only one who felt the game was short. However, I believe there is good and bad about this game. The good is that the HO scenes were somewhat challenging. Neither easy nor hard. The mini-games throughout the HO scenes were different from other HOG games. I liked that about this game. The mini-games inbetween are somewhat different from other games. I also liked that about this game. The bad, the length. I took the time to read/listen to all the dialogue (which I don't do often). Thus, I was only able to complete 12 levels. However, the game only has about 27 or 28. I felt that if I did not read/listen to all the dialogue, I could have finished this game during the demo. Those who finished the game confirmed this for me. So, my recommendation is do download and play the demo. This game is a little different, and you can kill an hour without any pain. However, I would not recommend buying. Too short a game and does not have the level of challenge that we might want in an HOG. Enjoy the demo!!!

The
real crime
besides being short was how the objects were hidden, using blurriness or grey scale isn't my idea of high quality. I really wanted to like this game, but in the end it's just not worth it.

Same here. I skipped the dialogue, played all the mini games and used very few hints. I finished with 2 minutes left in the demo. Good game though. I just wish it had been longer.

a. the game was too short

Well I am the slowest fish in the pond lol

The game took me just less than 2 hours to play which is still short in my books.

Wow, that is a short game, thanks for the warning everyone. Will find another game to spend this months credit on.

I almost finished in the trial hour. I was halfway through the last area. I did watch the opening story and did the mini games (super easy) so that is the only reason I didn't complete it.

So what happens when you finish the last level?

I can't believe someone actually made a game based on this man's crimes. I'm appalled! I remember who Ira Einhorn is and what he did. The man was a monster to say the least.

[i]Hi all... Reading your posts I didn't even try to DL the game.Might be an idea for not to release such games at all to prevent disappointing their fishies!!

played the hour demo, found the different scenes very dark and hard to make out the hidden objects. would not buy this game, not one of the BF best.
