I already have this game. I've been snapping them up as soon as I find them, but with this one, I've started to get a little bored. It's too much like playing the same game over and over. It's a great game but a new twist here and there would be appreciated.

I didn't even have to play the demo before purchasing this game. I have to admit to playing the demo on another gaming site quite a while ago and anxiously awaiting the BFG release! As in the previous 8 games in this series ..... I was hooked! So .... here goes my review!

Another GREAT FM game brought to us just in time - I've already replayed FM 8 several times! lol

There's a portal in the woods and the Penguin family has been sucked right into it! Will this be an exciting adventure or a journey into the horrific unknown?

The graphics seem just 'that' much brighter in this version. The music is quite lovely although it may not be everyone's cup of tea. There are no voice overs.

This game is played just like the previous 8 FM games. Using the numbers surrounding the graph-like game board, you must either fill in a block or mark it empty. Once all the numbers are used up, a beautiful picture will emerge.

We have 3 colors to work with. "Hints" that we accrue by finding them under them under a block, a pickaxe that will destroy one block at a time and recharges after every use and a bright 'sun' that, when placed in an area, will show all the filled in and empty blocks. So, lots of help if needed.

I didn't perceive that the first few levels were entirely easy as I had quite a problem with one level - having to repeat it several times. I don't like getting 'buzzed' for making an error so I just start over until I can finish a level without making a mistake. OCD much?????

There are 20 levels with 5 sub-levels in each. Giving us the usual 100 levels which can be played on casual or advanced. It would be nice if there were a CE version released that had bonus levels ..... or ..... SOMETHING extra and fun.

I didn't notice a tutorial so I wouldn't recommend it for those who are playing this type of game for the first time. Otherwise, I highly recommend it for all expertise levels. It is a standalone game so it's not necessary to have played the previous games.

Are we rescuing the little Penguin family or joining them in the adventure of a lifetime?

I love the game and have been waiting for this one. I was so into this morning I was almost late for a Dr. appointment.

I would love for them to add more colors and up the challenge.

I to play the same one over and over until I have a gold award.

For those who enjoy this type of game: ENJOY
