This game is very similar to Magic Encyclopedia. I LOVE it and can't wait for to get it. Hopefully it won't be long since ME was here not long after the release. Maybe if we're lucky it will be on the OctoberFest list too?

tee hee, I would have hidden in a closet with my laptop and told him (in a nice way) to sit on that balance ball. I'm not normally mean but this game is THAT good.

At least you'll appreciate it even more when you play it. Don't forget to come back and let us know what you thought of it.

I didn't like their intrusive tracking but I'm wondering if I'm being a snob and maybe I should try the demos there. I won't buy from them but I need more HOG crack and it's getting to be serious withdrawal time!

Scotcat, I don't click to play the gamebox part, just leave the box checked to play the game. Maybe that's what is giving you problems?

Buying is a whole 'nother ballgame. I tried to buy a game there once and got this freaky thing pop up that I needed to add something to my credit card. Now I must say that it DID have the correct name of the issuing bank for the credit card. I cancelled the order and called their customer service. They told me that it was the bank that was doing it, not them butttttttttt I've never had that happen to me before and I order online ALL the time. So anyhow that was the end of my purchasing from them!


Eleanor, have lots of fun!

I am also enjoying this one- I don't like that the map pops up every time you turn around, but I can live with it.

prpldva, are you talking about the main map with the dots on it? If you are then I found when you mouse over the map button in a scene and don't click, it will bring up the other places you need to go and then choose from there. That way you don't have to go back to the map that often.

Not sure if that made sense or if I'm confused by what you said. If it doesn't apply then please disregard!

Poodlebear, I'm jealous!! Wish I had as many games to still play as you do.

No- I figured out how to switch between locations without going to the map- I just didnt like it going there on it's own when you cleared a room

I still have 23 unfinished games to play! I haven't even finished Cate West yet.

I'm just so busy right now with all these kittens & cats, I don't have a lot of time. Once they are all placed in pet homes, I will be in HO Heaven. Plus, I keep playing Fishdom & 4 Elements over & over again. I'm addicted to them!
