Mild spoiler in review but I only played 8 minutes so not much of one...

Ok downloaded and gave it a shot but no way. Too many irritations... like the hints... you click the hint and it puts a blue symbol over it BUT it doesn't stay. I had to use TWO HINTS to find ONE ITEM because the first time the symbol was gone before I had a chance to find it. Kinda defeats the purpose of a hint. But the final straw was when I was looking for a shovel and there was one right in the middle of the screen large as can be... but ohhhh too bad that's not the drone you're looking for... oh wait that's a different movie ... but it's still not the shovel they want you to find. Instead it's a different shovel. I HATE THAT. Sloppy programming.

The play is basic... H0 scene... then mini-game... then you find one more item that gets added to your inventory. So it's an ihog but just barely. The graphics were ok but kind of dark in places and not very clear.

Maybe worth it as a DD some day if there are no better games... it's not hard... so could be good for a break between the real games.

I know what you mean... I get frustrated when games aren't properly translated too. It should be part of beta testing before you release a game in a language other than your native tongue.

WELCOME TO THE FORUMS gilamonster!!

There's lots of comments here about the 'Bin' being 'Bagged' so to speak. And it really is wonderful news. But how do we know it was really him?
It's probably an inappropriate question for this forum, I know, and I'll understand if the comment is removed - but there's a lot of conflicting reports this side of the pond.

God Bless America anyway!

This review cracked me up.

I normally read the comments before trying a game......until this time. Did you people take a cranky pill this morning? Oh, I forgot, you all must be doing everything perfectly every day of your life. Give BF a break....you ever tried to produce a new game every day and make it perfect? As for you guys who don't like **** games, BF has plenty of other games and genres. AND, could you people please type words and not letters....not all of us text message and still use good english words. That is my rant for the day...I am going to give this game a try just because you guys were so rough on it. Not everyone wants to brain strain on every game...sometimes you just want to relax.

Okay, I tried it for a while. It could use more story line to it, the hint does recharge fairly rapidly, and IT IS A STRAIGHT ****, and kind of boring but not a bad game. You just have to realize that a lamp is a light bulb, a clock is a watch, and a shovel is a trowel. Must be British. I don't think I would buy it just because of the lack of story line and interaction of characters. Puzzles are pretty self explanatory and there is a skip button. I'd rate it a "C": not a real challenge. I didn't use the hints too much because I found all the objects.

I, too, will swim against the tide. I enjoyed this game. The graphics were fine, the music as well, and I liked being able to take time to figure out the minigames. As far as story line goes, if I want a plot, I will read a book. I did not have difficulty finding the hidden objects. This is a nice, relaxing, lovely game.

I lasted all of 10 minutes on this game. No interaction with the main character was irritataing. I was not impressed. I will not be buying this one. Too bad. The idea behind it was interesting!

Puzzles without instructions. Mediocre artwork. Listing "shovel" in hidden object list when it should have listed "trowel" and putting a shovel in the scene as well as a trowel. Listing "flower" and putting in 2 potted plants with flowers and a flowering rosebush, but wanting another completely different flower for the inventory. Asking for a clock when a watch is wanted and vice-versa. Tech issue with game refusing to close, had to ctrl-alt-del and use task manager to get out of the game. Altogether too irritating for me to want to purchase.

Oh dear BF, not a good day at the office with this one. Did someone find it at the back of a drawer and wanted to give it a try. The worse part of this game is no interaction, we players want to feel involved (well at least a little bit). Perhaps it seemed so boring as I had just finished Agency of Anamolies - that was a great game.

I agree. I got to the point I just couldn't take the game another second. Straight HOG. No buy for me. The graphics are grainy, the music got annoying. I couldn't quit fast enough.

Definitely no buy for me. A little irritating with the overuse of wrong vocabulary - i.e. objects identified by wrong names. Just a boring game! We're spoiled!
