Did you try the gumball machine? I missed that one the first time around. It is in the second section where the car and trailer are.

It's a clock somewhere in the middle of the frame.

I spent 10 minutes clicking through screens trying to find the 11th game too, until I just happened to move my cursor over the gumball machine. I got all 11 tickets and played in the funhouse for a while before the hour was up. Yeah this is Scholastic and based on a series of kids books, but I found it pretty challenging at times, actually needed my daughter's help to find some items. I like the I Spy series because you really have to look and it gives you clues instead of just telling you exactly what to find. It was way too short, is there anything else to do after you get to the funhouse or do you just play there endlessly? If you replay does it give you different things to find? That's the only way I would even consider buying it, and then only because my daughter enjoyed playing it with me so much.

I liked the game I like how the objects perform when found. I would like to know how long it is before I buy. I don't like to look at walkthroughs unless I am pulling my hair out looking for things. I think I will buy if it is long enough.

happy gaming

I enjoyed the demo enough to put it on the wishlist (up there near the top), but I too would like to know about the replay value...it reminds me so much of the books, which I really enjoy.

Definitely for little ones - I think I might've like it better had there been an Options option [haha], the voice was killing me! The whole theme is cutesie, which, like I already said, is great for little critters. If I had kids I would get it for them, but it's not for me, although I do like the I Spy books.

Let me answer my own question re replay value : I skimmed through the Walk through and according to that, you go through the entire set 3 times, with different objects to look for everytime, and the Funhouse activities change too. So between 3 and 4 hours orf play...I can life with that!

I first found the I Spy series of games after playing MCF and nothing else was really coming out. I liked the I Spy games even though graphically and sound wise they seem geared to young children. At first I didn't like the no hints feature but now actually like this feature. I will be buying this one.

Normally I really enjoy hidden object games. However, I agree this game is frustrating with no hints and the things you find do not go away. The voice is also annoying. This is more of a kids game, but I don't think they would have the patience to sit through it for long.

I've played this game for the 1 hour trial, it is just a question of I Spy!! Although I found it extremely annoying at times that there was no hints, as it has been mentioned previously, when you click on the ? for help, it just repeats what you have to do. However I did manage to locate all of the golden tickets and entered the 'fun house'. This was not that 'fun'.
I would say that this game would be ideal for kids, although they may get extremely frustrated at not being able to progress until they have found all the objects. My 8 year old son enjoyed trying to find some of the objects with me, but then gave up when it got difficult.
Definately would not buy this game.

This is one of the worst games Big Fish has had in a long time! There are no hints...I finally got enough tickets to get into the fun house...then have 2 horrible puzzles to solve before I can go further in the game. I have solved at least 6 of the block puzzles and they must be endless. The balls puzzle --have never been good at those and only 50 seconds. I am going to delete the game. Very diappointing!

I am sixty years old and I love the game. At first, I was frustrated because there were no hints to be found.

Most of us are lazy and do not like challenges. I-Spy forces you to search and that is why the critic is bad. I have not found all the hidden objects yet, but I keep trying and discover the true adventurer (seeker) in me.

Those who claim that the game is for kids are wrong, very wrong. Yes the girl's voice sounds like a fifth-grader, but many times fifth-grader's surpass their elders in knowledge.

This game forces every one to become better.

Enjoy!

I thought the same thing you did about the fun house puzzles, but you don't have to solve them to continue. Once your reach the fun house, you go back to all of the other scenes for new objects to find and get 11 more tickets to unlock two more doors in the fun house and then do it for a third time.]

Have to tell BF how much I am enjoying this - at 62 years old. I remember liking the previous ones also. The scenes are not dark, objects are correctly named (except for being riddles of course), plain English, fun animation, etc.

As others have explained, only part of the Fun House is available the first time. You go play the 11 locations again with different things to find, then more will be available.

I can never find everything the first time I look at a location. But I keep going back. I am about halfway through the second time now, and haven't had to look at the walkthrough yet - but it is good to know it is there.

Some of the I Spy Fun House gamers must be new to I Spy otherwise would know this isn't targeted for adults. Isn't anyone familiar with the I Spy books from Scholastic -- probably the 1st in hidden object FUN?!

Anyways I knew what I was getting into and enjoyed everything - as I always have with the I Spy books. The photography is awesome and I enjoy the 'art' aspect of it all. I enjoyed the younger sounding female voice and the animation. There isn't supposed to be a story - basically the picture is the story. Again, this isn't an adult game but definitely a great game to play with younger children.

However, I wasn't able to complete the game because the Whirl-A-Swirl would never activate for me and meant I couldn't get the 11th ticket. I hope that it works on my next attempt to play.

Thanks,
NeiceyMoo
