Another no buy for me, this game was so very boring. Felt like it was for someone in elementary school. Will not buy this one.

Definite no buy for me either. Not sure what it is about this game, but it just didn't grab me. Maybe not difficult enough or just sort of boring. I agree with Goofyduck. Took me awhile to figure out what the ash shovel was too. Odd, not much fun for me, but for someone new to the pond, it might be just right.

Agree with Goofy's and Cherbtoo's comments regarding most of the game. However, I though it was cute. It had a unique style instead of same old H0 scenes etc. I like finding multiples of the same thing. The cleaning she had to do fit with the story line instead of being tedious and out of place like 13th Skull.

The mini puzzles were a different style and I liked them. Finding streets in NYC was interesting to me. I was worried about the number of hints being defined, but there was not a need for more hints in the game.

Have to chuckle a little about the instructions for mini-games -- not long ago many were complaining because there were no instructions for mini-games. Today many are complaining because the instructions are too long. Is there any way to get that right?

The language and spelling did need better proof readers. Nothing was so oddly named or spelled that it made it impossible to figure out. Some were complaining about the language, but mine was in English with only some misspellings.

This will be on my list as a definite maybe.

Where do I start?
An "AashAsh" Shovel?????
Really - if that kind of mistake passed QC I am not going to waste more time - graphics are poorly drawn, fuzzy and were too hard to read.

This is a very poor representation of the quality BF is capable of.

BIG FAIL, guys!

The graphics are fair. The gameplay is HOG with puzzles. The storyline is a tad dull. I tried to stay interested in the game, but failed.

This game is a C-.

I love a challenge but this was left me shaking my head in puzzlement as to what to do next. The first items were ridiculously easy to find, but once you get into the restaurant, you're basically on your own. English is horrible - e.g., aash ash shovel? (that might not be exact but is very close). No buy for me.

Agree, especially for a non American person.Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Harlem, China Town, Central Park, Empire State Building, OK, otherwise I just clicked randomly, except for the rivers. So I din't like the game to start with. H0 were fairly easy, just came across one litte game (sliding pizzas), nothing new there. Graphics OK, but it's a no buy for me, just bored me.

I'm one of the few that liked this game. Got past the pizza slider puzzle (I love sliders!) but still lost the job cos I wasn't quick enough! Enjoyed finding the landmarks too; all the buildings, streets and other places were named so it wasn't that difficult to find them. Bright graphics although a bit fuzzy. No timer in mode that I played. Never have music on so can't comment on that. I don't mind finding the same multiple objects; beats looking for feathers, umbrellas or butterflies every HOG that comes out. Got as far as meeting friend for lunch when time ran out and was sorry it had ended.

Have to watch pennies so maybe will use a credit for this if nothing outstanding comes along this month. Still hoping to see Royal Envoy 2; Playrix said it was in development when the first one came out which seems like ages ago!

This game was an "okay" game in my book. I did the relaxed version so I wasn't timed. I hate being timed on games. But anyway, the reason I didn't like the game was the mini games with the puzzles. They were hard to understand. (Not the "conveyor-belt" like ones. ) The HOG scenes were okay. I must have spaced out in the beginning at the directions , because it took me awhile **SPOILER** to figure out that the stars meant extra hints. All in all, it wasn't one of the best out there.

I was actually enjoying the puzzles in this game enough to buy it. Big mistake. It only took another 15 minutes beyond the hour already given in the demo to beat the game. This game was way too short and I feel like I've been ripped off.

So, in saying that, this is a simplistic hog game. 3 minute skip button,why? I wouldn't skip if it was interesting. Staring at the screen for 3 minutes waiting to skip,doesn't make me like the game any better. I moved the pizza around the board and freed one, why again? lol I'm sorry to say this is really boring and beyond simplistic in play. Would I get if for a punch card? I'm not sure yet. I'll wait till the future and see if it comes up as a DD and play it again and decide then, if I want to wait 3 minutes to skip a puzzle that doesn't interest me anyway.
I'd rate this: "POT BELLY" being generous. PORK BELLY: Likable game for some, but not for everyone. ' ' (o)

HI...lovetomisslisa...well if i could have got the darn 'pig out of the poke' i then could have know what the game was about ...i have read all in comments/reviews but first checked out the 'tech issues'....o.k. what a difference...those that got to 'base 1' and those whose struck out at 'base1'...my trail try was a page that looked like the chicken got out of the henhouse and stepped in paint and then tried to write in the little black boxes....then to get out...had to shut down 'puter...from these forum'S...it is probably not worth it....

Review of demo played for 1 hour.

I downloaded this game to play just to see how bad it could be from my previous experiences with HDO. They have the benchmark bad game of all times, something about the Vatican which I am trying to forget and are usually unplayable even for the shortest periods of time. I must say that they have improved a bit. Yes, typos, spelling errors, misnamed items, some downright silly pointless minigames....but they have improved. First off, the scenes are nicely drawn, colorful and interesting. Yes, you still must find the same item spread over the place, but it didn't seem to bother me in the nice settings. Some of the minigames were fun, like the crossword jigsaw. I played without the timer, but I like timer options. It has lame but skippable dialog. Minis are also skippable. I actually played the entire demoand had fun. Would I buy? Well, not with all the fine offerings out there now, but probably as a DD.

No, no, no. A thousand times no. Have to click on things multiple times for it to register and it uses up the clock in the "timed" mode.

I'm in agreement with most all posters here. There wasn't anything to get your teeth into. Silly puzzles & too many instructions. If I'd wanted to read so much I'd have picked up a book. This truly wouldn't be a buy for me even on a DD.
