Whilst I like the game, I found the gameplay during the demo way too easy.

I experienced no issues with loading the game. The hint button has a fast recharge, and you can read dialogue at your own speed and click the dialogue bubble when you want to move on.

I agree with other fishies that it's good to have a variation from the typical hog storyline, which this has. I just wish it was a bit more demanding.

Searching for items was very quick. Everything appears to be well placed/hidden, but apart from a couple of dollar notes, I didn't need to use the hint button and passed through each search screen in a couple minutes at most. I don't try to race throught a game, just couldn't seem to help it with this one. I managed to fully play through 8 different characters and I believe there's another 7 or 8 to go. This suggests that if I bought the game I'd get maybe another hour out of it.

Considering the excellent value for money that other games provide, this one is just way too short and easy for me.

I'd buy it in a daily deal, but I don't think it's worth the standard bigfish member price when comparing it to other games available.

this game was JUST too silly for me. first you are a dog, then a bird, I didn't finish it, I'd rather find a more exciting game to buy..from the advertisement, I was hoping this was going to be a mystery of some sort,

It might have been fun if the hidden objects weren't so tiny, hard to see, and sometimes poorly placed. On my monitor, a lot of those things are tiny. And, some are so close to the edges, you can't really see them (like the cat on the roof).

Plus, it just didn't grab me.

Might buy it some day on a DD special and play it with a magnifying glass. Might not.

The game was...decent...I was expecting a more morbid theme so I was a bit disappointed with it being so light-hearted. It was long and like others have said the hint system was very generous.

The one thing though, that pulled the whole game down for me was the HORRIBLE TRANSLATION! Really! They couldn't find anybody to do a better job than that?! Do they think we're that dumb and won't notice? They really need to fire the person in charge of translation, it was just terrible. It took away from the game. There were some hidden objects that weren't even named properly, like in the last level band aids were called "plasters."

re plot: isn't this "Heaven can Wait"?

...or at least inspired by...

This is the worst game I've played on Big Fish yet. I started out thinking it was interesting & bought it when the 1 hour trial was up. Then it turned out to not be very challenging at all & the English was terrible. "Plaster" means "bandage?," "mouth a tube" means "put a straw into?", "music plates" means "records?" There were twice this many translation problems, but I'll stop there. Big Fish needs to test its games before it puts them on its website for purchase. Just horrible!

Refreshing change of storyline and I would love to be able to finish it BUT I can't see the objects. Having to use 2 or 3 hints in each scene is not my way to enjoy a game. I suppose I could wait until the objects actually appear in the scene but I don't have the patience.

I enjoyed this game. It is light-hearted and bright with many different ideas throughout. The gameplay is mostly HOG with a few interactive items. The map to change locations was easy to use and the hints helped throughout the game. I'm glad there were unlimited hints and they recharged fast because I was sometimes totally at a lost as to what to do. The hint system, however, led me to the next step.

I like games where you find several of one item and this game had a few scenes like that. The music was fun and the graphics easy on the eyes. The game held together as the H0 scenes were consistent with the character "body" that you currently inhabited.

The non-standard English naming of objects did not bother me. I rather enjoy the unique translations for items. I find it interesting to see what others may have as names for items. However, the bandage/plasters did confuse me a bit.

Overall a fun play for some relaxing time with an angel.

It took 8 minutes of my trial to load the game to get to the opening scenes. Then it started to load again....I lost patience and deleted it!
I can't be bothered playing a game where all you do is wait for it to load.
Waste of time!

Based on the other reviews I read here, I really, really wanted to like this game...but it's just not my cuppa joe.

The premise is very cute, but I didn't care for the game mechanics. Then again, I am more of a fan of iHOGs and FROGS than straight HOGs. I found straight-HOG scene after straight-HOG scene quite tedious, and I had to use the hint far more often than I cared to. That said, the hint system is exceedingly generous!

Then again, maybe I am just tired after a very long day at work - but I just wasn't able to get into this game.

Glad there are so many of you who liked it - enjoy! And happy gaming.

Thought this game was cute at first and so I bought it, but it got pretty repetitive. It's easy, the graphics aren't that great and music/sound effects are also just okay. It's not a bad game--I did like it enough to finish playing.

This premise was done much better in the Reincarnations series and there's quite a few incorrect/obscure words in the hidden object list (for those of you particular about that). There's also several places where the UK word for an object is used instead of the American word (e.g. plaster instead of band-aid, or torch instead of flashlight). I grew up learning UK English so I didn't have a problem with that, but others might.

This is not my type of game. Very boring, repetetive and almost childish. Not a favorite of mine. I just wish I tried it before I bought it. Give me MCFiles and others like that.

I get to where you find the elements, but then it keeps telling me to "do something in other location", and I can't. It only has two locations and one of them you cannot go to. So, the last element I cannot get to finish the game. I have know clue what to do! I'm so stuck! Any help here people?




Same here. guess were done!!!!!!!!!!
