Game gets stuck and will not let you advance past day two. The Dad must discipline the child but when he does it does not recognize it. If you try to use the tutorial in the beginning of day two, it will not let the Mom discipline the little girl on the bed. Maybe the game will be more enjoyable when the bugs are worked out.

I also had that same problem with it not allowing you to click on the kids. Seems like it might be a good game, too bad it doesn't work right.

I'm having similar problems with not being able to click on things. All in all, it takes most of the enjoyment out of the game and just makes it frustrating. I'll wait for a new release.

The same thing happened to me on the night version of day 2...won't let me let the mom or dad discipline the child in the tutorial part. If you skip the tutorial part all the parents do is clean up the mess...no discipline...very disappointed Big Fish...please let us know when you've worked out the kinks, until then I won't be buying it.

Hello, I just finished the first family.. I am enjoying the game so far..
About the day 2, I had the same problem, but then I realized that I needed to select mom first, by clicking on the Pink handy button, the same thing on day three night.. I found that I should pay attention to which parent I am using.. most of the times that I thougth I was stuck on the tutorial, I could unstuck by selecting the right parent.

Nice game so far.. I want to see the second family first, before buying it...

This game is way better than Nanny Mania 1 and 2. But of course it is a pity that some of you experience problems with the game's performance. If I remember correctly, the game originally was supposed to be released in Mid-July, but had to be delayed due to a few issues. I hope there will be a really fixed version soon.

I just finished the hour demo and played the whole way through first family did not come across these glitches -sometimes the controls were a bit cumbersome switching back and forth between the parents and the pos/neg feedback.
That is probably my only complaint about the game so far- the controls are fiddly otherwise I did enjoy the game.

Like leparlon, really need to play more of it though to make further judgement.

I think that some of the people who think they have a bug might be missing an arrow someplace. Like with the dishes. I thought I was stuck there too, but then I realized that there are TWO pink arrows on that scene! You just need to click the Mom icon where the arrow in the bottom corner is pointing at and THEN click on the dishes. Try that and I think your game will work. Good luck!

Yes I was thinking that too, it could be because of the fiddly controls. The game is not the most user friendly that way. I got used to it the more I played but still a bit of pain all this switching back and forth and making sure the correct parent and action highlighted.

Closed demo after about 20 minutes, stuck like everyone else. Too many instructions. LIked other Nanny games, this one needs help.

I got up family 2, about day 2 or 3, in the demo and did not have the same glitches as everyone else. The glitch I did encounter was when I would send a parent to change the toddler's diaper, for some reason it wouldn't let me. And then the parent was stuck holding the child and wouldn't do anything else. At first I just thought that happened because "dinner time" was called in the middle of that action, but it happened again on a different day no where near "dinner time". I had to go back to the main menu every time this happened and start the day over. Over-all, it wasn't that big of a deal, but I can imagine the later levels getting harder and then it would be a big deal to start the day completely over.

Otherwise, I enjoyed the game. I'll probably wait for a game credit though as opposed to outright buying the game right now.

I had no problems at all with this game, which by the way I love!

Reading all the messages I am nearly sure that nobody here has any bug, people are just not clicking right ... come on guys follow the tutorial, it's not that difficult ...

I really enjoyed playing the trial for this one! I didn't experience any of the bugs mentioned above. I got about halfway through the second family. I found the gameplay quick enough to be a good challenge. While the levels are "timed" in the sense that you have a goal time, it didn't seem to matter if I didn't make the goal time, so this could appeal to both players who like a timed mode and players who like untimed games.

I keep getting thrown out of the game on day one. I think I'm just going to have to call this game a lost cause for me.

I played the game for almost the entire demo trial hour. I like the graphics in the game, but I have to say that it is a just little too complicated, in my opinion. I didn't encounter any glitches and I definitely agree with many in saying that the controls are a little complicated.

When you are trying to get a parent to discipline the child, you have to make sure that you click the child and not whatever they are doing that needs discipline (i.e. the wall they are drawing on).

@Candukay: you might not have been able to change the diaper because of the same thing I did. I tried to set it up in advance by clicking the diaper-changing station and then clicking the garbage can. What I found is that the parent would then be unable to change the diaper (and hence, you'd be stuck). If you give the parent a little time to get to the station and start changing it, you can then click the garbage can in the bathroom in advance (although, why there isn't a garbage can beside the station is beyond me. Who wants to carry a dirty diaper through the house just to be able to throw it away?)

Overall, I thought the storyline was good. Graphics were good, but gameplay could be worked on. /5

This is exactly the problem I have. I've redownloaded and reinstalled and still get this. If I could resolve this issue, I'd consider buying, it's cute.... but obviously won't buy if I can't play.
