WooHoo! My second wish came true!

One of the best enchanted HOG+Adventure games.

Adventurers, beware - 4 characters play in this plot, and have to pass inventory objects from one to another... Lol, I still don't know exactly how to do it...

Happy gaming!

Edit: 4 characters...

I agree - I think it's a great game & like the passing of objects between characters, makes it a little more challenging. I just bought it - happy playing!

I would love to play it, but after downloading it, I get a message that I'm missing one of the flash10 files. Don't tell me I have to redownload it. This is the first time I've ever gotten that message, so it must be a file spec. to that game. Check it out Floundie. I shall put on my Sherlock hat and investigate.

Really enjoyed the demo. I'll probably buy later today. I like how the characters exchange inventory items ... very innovative.

Graphics are good but there are small items. Music was not irritating. Puzzles are rather simple thus far ... but are good ones. They may get more difficult as you get into the game. One item to find was the crowbar ... had to laugh ... thought of Scotcat!! LOL

Down inside the well, the magician guy kept popping up at the top of the screen saying "that glow looks interesting." Well, I'm sure it does ... but there was no fricking glow on my screen!!

Would be interested in the length of the game. Hopefully, someone will comment on it in their comments.

Where's the Banana?

[Post New]by Prima2339 on Dec 5, 09 2:31 AM
I'm stuck and can't move forward in this game until I find a banana for the monkey?

He's got a key that I need, but won't give it up until he gets something to eat.
I'm assuming it can't be a usual yellow banana because the scene I'm in,(the one with the snakes) has a lot of greenery so yellow would be quite easy to see. I've searched everywhere for one. Is it possibly in a previous scene and I need to go back to somewhere to retrieve it?
Can anyone help me out?

bgarcia I got the same message. Tried to just download and install flash, still didn't work. Restarted computer and got directed to flash plugin download again. Followed the prompts and game worked. Hope that helps, Tracey. PS, the game is quite original in some aspects, so quite enjoyable.

Having the same problem, it appears that some part of 'flash' is missing, but all other games work correctly, so it can`t be that. Am uninstalling and re-installing, so will see if that makes any difference.

Beautiful game - really enjoyed the demo - but won't be buying cos there is so little replay value. Innovative game! Enjoy!!

Lana, how can you say there is no replay value after a one hour demo??
I always think of replay value as having enough objects in any screen so that different things are sought after when a game is replayed. Now certainly, some screens require one type of item to advance the game ( such as the snake gathering ). Perhaps your perception of replay value differs from my own. Please return and explain yourself.

As to the game itself, HOGging is rather simple, the puzzles are fairly simple 30 minutes into the game. I do like that more than one puzzle must be completed in scenes to advance the game. The unique feature of having more than one game character as a protagonist is outstanding and hopefully this will be continued in games of the future. After all, these games tell a story and most stories have more than one character in them.

Cherai is a welcome addition to the HOG genre and I think a lot of gamers will find this one very compelling.

Very nice. Definite buy for me. You have to use your brain a little on this one, remembering which character needs what and so forth. Love the graphics, music, and length looks nice and long. Nice lazy day game. Thanks, BF.

I am going nuts. After three hours I still cannot find a person to trade off the item from. I cannot seem to get the meeting place orgnanized or workable. Is it just Me ? HELP !

 

Re:The Dark Hills of Cherai

[Post New]by lizabetty on Dec 5, 09 11:43 AM

Someone please explain the meeting place to me. I want to move he plank to Maya upper right, then I turn it and it turns back and says no one to meet there. I am going in circles. I have reread the walk through four times. Anyone elsewith this problem? I clearly cannot understand it nor go forward in this game. Frustrated.

The meeting place

[Post New]by BarbaraFish on Dec 5, 09 12:16 PM
I tried to backtrack, before figuring out that if you just click on the MAP in lower right corner, you can send your character there. Do that for whoever needs to exchange something, or simply send them all there.
