How do you get it to stop showing you the answers? That is driving me crazy! I thought it might do it by turning off the effects but that didn't change it. Anybody know?

No I tried that too but it didn't work. Really spoils the game.

Utterly frustrated with such a stupid game. It doesn't allow you any time to search for an object before it tells you where it is. I quit after 20 minutes I was so pissed off with it. I also agree with a previous poster in that the last week has been a total dud in terms of the games offered. So glad I haven't signed up for the daily deal.

Please do better BG. We have higher expectations of you.

I find it really hard to find the objects, and was disappointed at how slow the hint recharged, when I suddently found out it didn't matter - a little twinkle shows you where every hidden object is. Even when you are succesfully finding things, like when you have to collect the bits of torn map, a little twinkle shows you where the bits are. Not so much a Hidden Object games as a 'here it is, over here' game.

Not for me, I like a bit of a challenge,

I thought I must say something about the stupid twinkles that show you the answer but I see it has already been mentioned as it annoys everybody. It totally ruins the game. It seemed like quite a good game but the twinkles will stop me buying it. What a shame, what were they thinking? Why not just add a 'Game Over, Well Done' button on the menu?

When I tried to open the game it said the message, "Failed to render card." What does this mean?

Agreed!
And how hard would it have been to be able to turn this feature on or off or even control the amount of time searched before the hint kicks in?

Saved me $6.99, but that is not the idea, is it?

This is not a hidden object game, it's a Find The Sparkle, new genre. However I gottta admit without them I probably wouldn't have even seen half the objects or unrecognizable teeny parts of something. Did pretty good putting bugs in their jars and liked the jigsaw map, but that doesn't add up to $6.99 in my book. Just gave me a silly way to spend an hour of insomnia.

I must agree with you all, including the insomnia. You didn't even get time to read the list, or finish picking up an item before it began twinkling. Why bother with a hint system?
I have my fingers crossed that will be getting "Marooned" soon. Seemed like a really good game.
Well other fishes, I think maybe that one will finally send me off to . Good Night All. Have a wonderful Day.

I completely agree with all the above ... the twinkles drove me absolutely batty as did the miniscule objects.

Bribling get the bus and placards out and let us go on a trip.

I have to agree with everyone. This game is a waste. But let me tell you...this morning I woke up,downloaded the game, got my cup of coffee and was ready to play. Well, I could not keep my eyes open. So I clicked around with my eyes closed. When I would hit one of the objects, it made a clicking noise. I could get about 3/4 of the items with my eye closed and not see the sparkle. Just thought I'd share that you, Kind of funny to me, playing a HOG with your eyes closed Still waiting for a GOOD game

Hey, can I join you? Lol!!!

That is the trouble with almost all translated Russian games - they are awesome, but seems that sometimes the programmers don't trust the players' intelligence...

Dark screens and tiny objects are enough for me to pass the game, but the twinkles make me feel really dumb...

If you uncheck visual effects in the 'options menu' The twinkels will vanish by the second **** screen. Anyway, the objects are in some cases so obscure that they are very hard to find.

So, if I could be bothered to overlook the comicbook grafics and interludes, Ah, what the H... I can't be bothered, who am I kidding, I am not going to waste 6.99 on this piece of boring garb - game, I mean.

Uh...let me think about this one.......NOT. Objects too small, twinkles annoying and too frequent, hint recharges too slow. Better luck next time. I'm with all my fishy friends...I NEED A GOOD GAME...been a bad week for BF.

Why wait, when BF has an excellent game of it's own, and keeps it in the Beta safe??:

Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose

Come on! Release it! [Picman, where are you?]

BFG, helllllll-oooo. Are ya' listenin'? You been turnin' out some real stinkeroos lately. I've been a member for almost a year now. I think your customer service,ease of downloading and library of games is the best. BFG is the only game supplier I do business with.................BUT! unless you do something about the quality and technical aspects of your games,I'm gonna' have to go lookin'. A real shame.
