Well, the developers can keep this game, as far as I'm concerned. Won't waste my time, effort and money on it. Seriously!

I totally agree with CasualGran on this game. Some of the objects are so hard to see. Most mini games I'm not fond of and this one you have to do up to 4 of them. It gives you a way to skip them but I was turned off seeing that I had or skip 4 of them after level 1. another thumbs downs from me too.

PLEASE READ!!! A person on this forum on the last thread, 2nd page mentions some hints, now whether this will help you or not- maybe you can go at least read what he/she has to say. The name of the person is sweetcandygames, (a developer of the game), I hope this helps and good luck, TMann

Well TerryMann I have read Sweetcandygames post and it hasn't changed my mind one little bit. I still dislike the game and having to play 4 minigames after the first screen made me dread playing another screen in case I had to play another 4 or more after that one as well.

I also was ready to shoot the "help" as, for some reason, I found her very annoying. It could have just been that she was so big and in your face but even a smaller version of her would not make me purchase this game.

I'm sorry but I just didn't find this game enjoyable at all and it gets a from me.

I buy many hogs every month, but I will also pass on this one. The graphic is fuzzy like other fishies have already said, I don`t like the minigames and I find it horrible to play 50 (!!) levels if I am already bored from only 2 levels. No buy for me.

Once again, a game that is rife with misspellings and typos (dices????) - I refuse to buy any game where the developer can't bother with editing or proper translation, where that's the case.

I've played 31 minutes of the demo, and to me, it's a very easy game, at least in the time played so far. I have found all items on the find list, with only one miss click. I played two levels in this 31 minutes, played the skill tests with no problems, except on the trivia questions when it asks who the artist was of a certain painting..
I don't know yet whether I will buy or not, because it seems a bit too easy for me.

I usually don't post my feelings about a game, but I had to vent here about this one. The hidden objects are so obvious that you feel as though you are ridding the screen of the nonsense that a toddler has thrown on it. I also always have a major problem with dialog that is so poorly translated that it makes you cringe. It would only take a small effort on the developers part to have someone proof read it and point out what makes absolutely no sense. And the 'Mistake-O-Meter'?
I think it would be put to better use by keeping track of just how many brain cells you are losing by playing this game!!

Fuzzy graphics, obvious HOs, really lame mini games, wrong click-o-meter??, repetative dialog after every chapter, couldn't be bothered to correct spelling issues, etc., etc. I will uninstall this game immediately. Complete waste of time.

I was only being helpful, that was all- but a developer on another game site was actually very helpful to me regarding a M3 game a few months ago, I just figured there may have been something you all maybe missed. I knew once you all IHOG's/HOG's fans made up you're mind, I knew you all would have left it at that. Though I do know of a couple of fishies that actually liked the game and good for them. I noticed that a few fishies actually, went over there to that thread and gave that developer a word or two or shall I say a few, LOL!! As for me, let's just say it was a big waste of my time, that's for sure. TMann

What a rubbish game! I did endure the full hour... The HOs were generally obvious - when not hidden in a dark part of the screen or mistranslated so that you were looking for the wrong thing. The last of these I had was a "cup" which eventually, after clicking all round the hint area, turned out to be a transparent rectangle presumably a "glass" or "tumbler". Or else the object was not the one you were supposed to find. One scene had four trees in it, each of which I clicked on incurring the dreaded penalty. Then the hint revealed that it was the first of these anyway. The tasks were easy enough but I actually found them a welcome relief from the **** scenes.

Yes, sack the self-styled help with her endless time wasting repetitions and fatuous comments. Send her to study English, preferably not in Uzbekistan or similar. Close the gallery down, we aren't interested in its history! So they all went off to see the first modern "olimpic" games: wasn't it spelt right on their tickets, then?

Don't waste your time on the free trial, let alone your money on buying it.

Just wondering why my post has acquired asterixes where I typed ****!

Please make the "helper" go away. That might speed things up. Very repetitious!

The answer to nooldesroms question: You get always only ***** when you write HOG, because it can mean also a nasty word (pig). I think thats the reason. (I have searched in a translationbook for HOG lol).
