Hi Dawn- Welcome to the forums!

I don't recall any voices. The new build allows you to skip the cut scenes if you like.

I counted 14 portals.

While it's not a super long game, it was very enjoyable to play. Well worth the 6.99 in my opinion.

I just downloaded the trial version to see if i would be interested in buying the game and for some reason after going thru the first portal it says you need to take pictures but i can't seem to figure out how to do it....it says somthing about clicking on blue button on pda, but the pda showing up on my screen doesnt have any buttons cept below the hint and menu or back buttoin. Does someone know why this is or am i just missing sumfin cause im not awake all the way...LOL!!!

BF Please tell me that there will be a continuation of this game as it is one of the best HOG games. Great graphics and very different from all the others it kept me occupied and with no problems, it was great. I loved the no time mode as I fell asleep from the drugs I was taking after surgery and would wake up about an hour later with no penalty.

Keep up the good work with all the games especially the unusual ones like this.

Hi Chelle- when the viewer comes on the screen, move it over the area that matches until you see the green cross hairs show up- then click and you will have your picture.

I hope this helps

Look on the right side of the pda at the top, there's a small blue circle/button

When I click the pda hint button, it counts down, but doesn't show me any hints. What gives?

Sit back from your screen so you can see the whole screen. The hint only flashes for a second then it's gone. So you will miss it if you are not watching the entire screen.

Lucky for me I look around the screen and noticed this game promoted by BF. Happy discovery. Very enjoyable play time, excellent graphics, mini games easy but fun. Interesting story, some of the HOs are very cleverly disguised which adds to the fun. Replay a definite yes. Really well done, unlimited time, no stress,love it.

I'm not sure if this is what you are having a problem with but if you want to continue the game where you left off you have to click PLAY in the upper right part of the Main screen. You might have been clicking on "Choose a Portal" instead of clicking on PLAY.

It is easy to click the wrong thing on the main menu because Choose the Portal in right in the middle of the screen and it is the first thing you notice. If you do that it will keep taking you back to the same place and you don't advance.

Try to go back and click on PLAY which is above Choose a Portal and see if that take you to the place where you last played. Good luck!

There is something seriously wrong with the Mac port of this game. I've spent several minutes of the trial trying to get it to work. The sound file is obviously corrupted, as all you get is static sounds. And don't get me started on the fonts! At the beginning of the game you get yellow squares with white letters inside that you can barely read. Then when you get in the game you can't even read the list of things to find because all you see is pink (I believe) squares.

My computer should be able to handle this game, as I checked the requirements and it should be good to go. I was excited to find another hidden object game to try out, but this one has turned out to be nothing but frustrating.

Thanks for letting me rant.
