I am a little disappointed in the game this time. It doesn't have that eerie feel that the 1st one had to it. That was one thing I liked about the first one. Some of the objects are small and hard to find. . I haven't decided whether or not I am going to buy the game.

More of a "buried object" than hidden and the scenes are blurry. I downloaded the hours free trial and binned it after 40 mins. BORING!

I bought it and like it very much. Is there a walkthrough or game-guide available ?

So far so good, but keep getting an error and it quits on me, then I have to go back in and start again.

Sorry trashed it after 20 minutes. Blurry, blurry ,blurry. Great it has no timer button but need clearer pictures. So I guess it's back to killing zombies.

Hi Giggyann (cute name),

I noticed several of us are having the same blurry (pixelated) problem and have asked Bryce (the developer) what to do about it. I hope he doesn't tell us to change our screen resolution cause that messes up all my desktop icons so its not an option for me. However, if I get a satisfactory answer from Bryce, I'll let everyone know.

I LOVE the zombies. BRAINS!!! (I'm safe, though. No brains here ) I just can't seem to get past a certain point. Oh, well, practice makes perfect.

Not for me! I remember the first one and thought how the scenes were just so cluttered. Thought maybe it wouldn't be like that with this one. 7 minutes into the demo and hated it. I don't like games where you have to struggle to find an object because the scenes are so full. Gives me a headache. The graphics aren't that impressive. First scene I was in, there's this book flapping around...so distracting! I have to give this a just like the first one. Sorry.

I agree, the items are soooooo tiny, made my eyes burn and the starting of a headache. so probably won't bother with buying this game.

I just bought and downloaded this game. I really liked the first one because it was more difficult to find the items--I usually blow through a hidden object game within a few hours and I liked how the first one took me a loooooooong time to finish. The only thing I was disappointed about was the end where I had to find those 4 runes. I could only find 3 runes though, and despite the help on the forums I finally had to just give up on it. I'll try it again at some point, but I thought maybe the second one would be a little better. I'm a little nervous though after hearing that some of you have had to deal with blurry graphics. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope this problem isn't too bad! Thanks for the heads up though--at least I won't be surprised by it.

items too small, and same items kept repeating in the scenes - didn't finish. Makers should take clues from Edgar Allen Poe Conspiracy - great graphics and objects easier to find.

P.S. - the keys were so hard to find especially the "black" ones.

Moderator and Legendia:

I cannot access the Wand of Keys although i have played the game all the way through 10 times. One of the posts to this forum on Jul 14 (Legendia it was your post and of course I cannot find it now) states that a newer version 1.03 was available to correct this problem. the post said to just download off the BFG webite on top of the version 1.0. That did not work for me so I contacted BFG by email. they state they do not have the version 1.03 and that the developer has not released it to them. What gives?? Lydia

I'm sorry you are having that problem.

That bug has been fixed. Unfortunately Big Fish is still working on updating their download 10 days later. You might want to contact tech support and customer service on this problem and push them to correct their download and then notify the players that purchased the game through them, that the new version is available.

I was on the beta team, and could not wait for the final version to come out. When it did I purchased it immediately from the developer (and Bryce [developer]) is pretty much a 1 man team.

With the economy the way it is, I really wanted to support Bryce's efforts and purchase the game immediately. BTW: The developer has released it to them, and did so days ago. In fact, I did get a pm from Bryce on July 18th stating that "Last I heard they were looking at the updated build, but I can't guess at when or if they'll post it. Hopefully the do! "

Unfortunately I won't be buying this game -I brought the first version and was happy with that, but this one has been over complicated the first version the view was a lot similiar to look around, its a shame because a lot of hard work as gone into this game-but hidden object game is actually about making things really hard too find as it's supposed to be a casual relaxing game also I didn't follow the story line at all which is supposed to be the whole fun of looking around areas -which they missed as they just concentrated on making the scenery look good.
