I agree!!! My fingers just can't get up to that 560 points needed!! You know, it's us old people that buy these games!!! The creators should take that into consideration! They're "CASUAL" games!

I have complained about this elsewhere. It is not at all what is expected as you play the entire demo, buy it, and happliy play way into the game. Then this essentially ends the game for you.

I did get through it after several tries. If I remember right (which may not be right) I started clicking as a person approached the circle, and found that would work even if the person was still quite a distance away.

Also, after getting past it, there is nothing like it so difficult, and the remainder of the game is playable.

I have the same problem with one of the boss battles in Zuma's Revenge. What I did with that was get a friend to come to my computer and play the level for me. After getting past that way, I was able to complete the game, including getting past other boss levels.

I am thinking that complaining here 2 or 3 times, as I have done, is not accomplishing anything. Someone needs to write to customer service. They are usually very responsive. If they do a search and see how many people have had this problem with this game, maybe they can do something - even if it is only to give you a game credit for another game.

I will think about this, and maybe write to them myself later on today.

In my copy, there IS a "SKIP" button during the aerobics routines. Down at the right, where CONTINUE will eventually appear. Isn't there one for you?

I'm pretty uncoordinated and also thought I would never get past level 6, but I did finally get through it by turning the volume all the way down and saying the colors out loud as I clicked on them. This makes it much harder to get mixed up/click the wrong color. Repeat repeat repeat because there is a pattern and you will start to get the hang of it so you can concentrate your attention more on your clicking than on which colors are going by.

Of course, some people may have arthritis or something else that will prevent them from ever being able to click that fast. I agree there should be a skip option. (And no, there definitely isn't one in my game, only a hint button.)

Have to agree, this is a bad minigame. took me forever to get through it-I think the patterns do repeat in each routine, so if you can remember the pattern, that really helps-even wrote one down! Still took me quite a while to get past this, and it may stop me from playing this over again, which is too bad. SHEESH-otherwise love this game.

Was having a wonderful time playing this game until the aerobics mini game. Now I am real sure I wasted my money as my reflexes are just not fast enough. Guess this is one game I will have to chalk up to experience. Hate it as I was really enjoying the rest of the game.

I have been trying the last of the aerobics mini game all afternoon, I have just passed it by making the screen smaller - go to options and click full screen, which will make it smaller and this made it easier for me to play.

I'm neither an "older" person nor arthritic, but I find the aerobics mini game and most of the other mini games to be annoying and nearly impossible. It's fine that they want to incorporate mini games to keep it interesting, but must we really repeat the same game five times? The one with the eggs was going to drive me bonkers until I finally cheated using the walkthrough. Its coming to the point where these games just aren't fun anymore. A challenge is one thing (and welcome) but lets not make it near impossible!

I too was getting very frustrated with the aerobic mini game. Not only do the colours get by faster each time, but - for heaven's sake - MUST there be so many levels? Aren't 3 levels enough?

And no, there is no skip button - with any of the mini games, which is very frustrating because all mini games go on and on, having to do 5 or 6 levels of each one. *sigh*

Usually I love the mini games and work through the eye-hand co-ordination ones if I can. I am pretty bad at them. But they are usually over quickly.

The aerobics game seems impossible for me. Which a pity, because I am enjoying this fun game. No stress, just fun UNTIL the AEROBICS.

I diminished the screen and that let me get to the last routine. Thank you so much for that hint. But I do not think I will get through the last routine.

Any one have the codes so I can skip this? Someone must have a game saved or something that would let me by pass the game!!!!!

I would hate to have to give it up without finding out what all the Pizza is for.

I might have to connect a regular mouse to my laptop instead of using the touch pad. I am grateful that the game at least remembers what level you were at last instead of making you start at the beginning if you quit in the middle of this mini-game

Don't know why with some colors I draw a blank. Also, must remember to keep my mouse off the color pie, otherwise you don't see the color of the covered pie slice.

Don't like the advancing levels. Although they may just be different patterns, not necessarily more difficult to perform.

It would be nice if you could find out in advance which games have the skip feature incorporated into the game as a standard option.

Just bought this game yesterday. I loved it.....up until the mini aerobics game. I cannot get past this mini game. It's a shame b/c I adored this game. Very disappointed with this game

Don't get a regular mouse ! I have a laptop as well and if I can finish the aerobics so can you!! Don't give up...the rest of the game is a breeze compared to this mini game. Try the smaller screen (that worked for me- you don't have to move as far; thus you can go faster). Also remember the patterns, in Level 6 (the last level), the patterns repeat for the most part. That makes it easier as well. Hang in there - Good Luck !

I am seriously struggling with this, i am just about ready to give up the game. i am on the last level where i need to get 560 points but i am just too slow! Like other people here i just can't keep up. I wish this activity had a skip option.
