Crafting Story

[Post New]by bfgFlounder on Jan 5, 15 12:29 AM
Crafting Story is a wonderful adventure that follows the story of a young boy named Albert who finds a chest in his grandfather's attic. It contains an old magical globe that can simulate things on Earth. Curious as Albert is, he decides to rearrange things to make the world a better place. Help him out on this amazing adventure and enjoy Crafting Story!

I am sorry but I don't agree, very boring doing same over &over again. Maybe for a kid but not for an adult who is up in early morning hours.

You have got to be kidding me. The devs should stick with their pictograms and solitaire games, which are boring enough, but at least they are playable. A dreadful game. I am not even sure a kid would not fall asleep while trying to play this game.

The game keeps opening to a black screen which then closes. I have never had this happen with any other game here. I downloaded twice to make sure it was not that. Finally removed it. Sorry.

Thanks Valdy - after looking at the graphics on the game page and reading your comments, no point in downloading.

I also can't get over the fact that BF is offering this game as TGT. If it had been a soft release, that would have been different. This game is just about good enough for a soft release, although I wouldn't even offer it here as a soft release.

bfgFlounder must know something we don't know. I couldn't even get started. I have been playing Big Fish Games for several years and this is only the second rubbish game I have come across in the last few months, so I have to ask myself if they are running out of ideas.

Well, that was a waste of 2 minutes. No instructions and childish graphics. What's the point of this, anyway?

Deleted from my hard drive. No sale.

This is not new - it showed up on the rival site in September! What gives - no new games available?

Did anyone else notice that there were 2 words spelled wrong on the sample image?? Makes you wonder about the rest of the game.

How do you play the game? Don't make sense to me.

2 minutes of my life I'll never get back. What a waste of time and effort this "game" is. Everyone else said it too - lousy graphics, no instructions, no obvious goals. Bad and boring.

Will Big Fish take any notice of our negative comments and stop putting crap games like this on do you think and do they actually play them before offering them to us. After all games like this do nothing for their reputation

So it's not me. I'm a very logical person but this game made no sense to me

Okay, only because I wanted to help you guys out, I subjected myself to an hour of this game. The idea is to click on an item (land, water) to create a token, and combine two tokens together to create another element. A simple example would be that clay + sun makes bricks although this example includes an element that you will not have for quite a while, it helps you to understand. Each time you have a new element, you may or may not be able to combine it with ONE other item on the screen. The more I did it, the more I understood the concept of it, but it truly didn't make it any more enjoyable. By the time my hour was up I had made water, grass, swamp, flower, stones, bamboo, mountain, desert, cactus, oasis, all kinds of weather elements, bricks, metal, steam, a volcano, lava and on and on. My entire screen was covered in option to combine. Once you complete one "world", you start over on another screen. There is a drop-down menu that will give you a hint and a few other options. If you want to try it, take advantage of the hint... it takes longer and longer to recharge as the game goes on. Uh... Enjoy? (not me)

I am glad to see all these posts about this game. I didn't want to just delete it if there was some little something I was doing wrong but apparently it wasn't me SO my 2 cents worth ....its boring and gave me a headache!! I ended up wanting to combine wind and water and wash it away in a tsunami

I'm downloading it to try. It looks kind of basic, but it is what is known as a "sandbox" game. You "play" in the "sandbox" at making worlds. There are a lot of sandbox games out there in the indie sphere, and they are well received. The idea is simply to explore, create, fiddle, tweak, and play god. There isn't exactly a "goal" like you find in most games. The whole idea is just to play around with the elements the world gives you, and do stuff.

It's not that it is a "bad game", it just isn't a "game" at all in the conventional sense. If you approach it as a creative endeavor rather than a means to an end, it may help you see the enjoyment of it.
