After the first few minutes of the demo I thought, what a waste of time. But I perservered and continued for my full hour. It's not a bad HOG. It is on the easy side even on Normal play. There is a story and a developing interest to find out the ending. My curiosity however is not worth $6.99. I'll get it as a DD but otherwise, no go for me.

Definitely won't be buying this one. Boring, sad music; if I click "skip", don't ask me to confirm I want to skip, obviously I do. Saved more money...

Call me simplistic but I liked this game a lot better than Al Emmo. I don't care about their story or plot so I skip the conversations. When you do that it becomes a straight HOG. The objects are fairly simple to find. I didn't use the hint that much. There is no time and you can skip just about anything you don't want to do. That's all I need in a game of that type. I will put this game on my buy list.

I quite like this game, especially those mini games. But unfortunately, after a while the game is getting just a little boring. It's missing the kind of kick you get from other HOGs - can't explain it any better.

I couldn't even demo it as the window kept minimizing each time I tried to play so it got deleted right away.

I couldn't stick with this one for long. Too simplistic, and dull. Not my cup o'tea.

A decent game that would be good for HOG first timers deciding on whether HOGS are their "thing". As for me personally this is a no go!

Happy Gaming Fishies!!!

Well, the game ran ok, the graphics was ok and I had no problem finding most of the items. But it was simply BOO-OORING! And that woman rubbed me all the wrong ways.

They *tried* to make some action in the storyline, with bombs and runaway boats and whatnot, but it just didn't grab me at all. The story seemed stupid and implausible -something that might not have been bad if it was made with humour and irony - but here it was obviously intended as some kind of action story with a macgyver/journalist/detective who can fix - or repair - EVERYTHING.

And repair she did: if she wanted a drink she had to repair the mixer first, she had to repair the record player to play music, repair movie machine, repair boat instrument, etc etc you name it. Why did EVERYTHING have to be broken just so she could repair yet another thing between each and every HOG scene? Every "repair" scene had me groaning more and more, until I had it up to *here* with boredom. And that Congratulation screen after everything you did, which just stayed and stayed.... GROAN!

I'm sorry to say the few good things this game had going, drowned in rapidly increasing boredom over implausible and stupid storyline and wannabe mcgyver-ism. That woman was expert in everything she did, including disarming timed bombs and navigating by stars, which is very unrealistic. On certain other types of forums (like writer forums) she would have been called a typical Marysue (which means a person who is always perfect, knows everything, never makes mistakes, and is basically in god mode. Nobody are more boring than Marysues...)

She looked awful too. I realize they've used DAZ (a 3D modeling program) for modeling her with the limits that program gives, but there are much more goodlooking models to use in DAZ... so why did they have to give her cheekbones larger than her fists? That's not exactly the right proportions...

Anyway, trying to calm down now. Needless to say, I won't be buying. Now I need to find me a nice, entertaining game to get out of this frustrated boredom...

its not a bad game, its relaxing, feels good to play a game that you can just think a little, I do to much thinking in the real world.

I think almost every thing has already been said, so I will just say this is a NO for me. It moved very slowly and was rather boring. The Congrat notice stayed way to long and could not be clicked off.

I am not a beginner and I agree 100% with goofyduck77. This was a fun and relaxing game. I like to play games to relax, as there are enough challenges and stress in life. I very seldom have a music problem, as I usually can block them out.

CasualGran wrote:Non-sensical and poorly described, sometimes vague objects, No voice-over. Tedious, repeating pianotune. Uninteresting story and the kind of minigames seen too many times before.

Nope. Definitely not for me.

I was going to post an opinion but I could not say it any better than CasualGran so..........................DITTO!!!

Utterly uninteresting premise; Cringe worthy text AND characters. This is a no-purchase for me.
