I was really enjoying the game. I can't believe it was only about two and a half or three hours long.

Typical - and no timer OPTION means throwing $$$ to the wind for me. That is my opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Right up my street but I was soooooo disappointed that it only took me 1hr 20mins to play from start to finish so not very good value for money on the whole.

Nice enough, but very short so a no buy from me. Seems the trend now is short games for the most part. I think my game purchases have dropped 80% over the last several months due to this and just generally a drop in quality games. Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

I didn't care for this one ,,Not sure what it was that didn't quite jive , But at one point I tried to skip a puzzle with the pipes , & even though I had waited for the button to let me skip , it wouldn't let me ..so even though the developers had put some time & effort in to this game , I don't think it was enough , Story line ..leaves me high & dry ..By the way when I played this the other site , it had a price tag on it ,,20 $ I would have a hard time spending 6.99 $ on this one .

This is a really good adventure game with a few hogelements in it. I really like it. I have played with my 3 d glasses but you can also play without the glasses. The game seems to be a little bit complicated at the beginning, but it isn`t. Its a relaxing game with a very nice story. I like especially that you switch between the different persons. The voiceacting is also good and also the hogscenes (no fuzzy graphic or tiny object). Thanks , thats a buy for me

I wanted to like this game but am having a difficult time. A bit too easy for me with almost completing the game in the hour demo. The storyline itself is a bit lame and I wonder how much the developers really thought beyond offering 3D hoping the gamer would be wowed beyond the flaws. I mean how difficult is it to get the cats name correct when it's the basis for the story. Is it Jinxie or is it Jynx? That may sound trivial but it is a bugaboo of mine.

3D and me don't jibe so I played this game without. Though the nausea I get with 3D glasses may have helped the game. Ooops, my bad.

Anyway... this is a no purchase for me. Just not lovin' it. Heck, just not likin' it.

I beta'd the game and loved it! I'm getting ready to play the released version today to see what, if anything, was changed since the beta.

Smallhaven, I thought the difference in the cat's name wasn't a mistake but was just another form of the same name by adding the 2nd syllable. However, I didn't notice the spelling difference.

I also thought the part that was available in the beta was which was just up to Chapter 3 (I think) was fairly long. I know it took me 2-3 sessions of over an hours playing and there was still plenty of the map the beta didn't get to so I'm kind of surprised at hearing that it seems to be a short game.

Will BF be getting the Collector's Edition of this game?

I tried the demo of this game on another site and found there to be quite a few problems with the running of the game. After about ten minutes I got bored and decided to exit the game. I could not exit the game normally but ended up having to shut down my computer. Once I restarted my computer, I had to readjust the resolution. Those were tech problems I know but I thought the rest of this forum should know about these issues. As far as game play itself, I was not impressed at all. Some areas were quite easy and others, like removing the stones from the quary ( sorrry for any misspelled words) left me cold. The hint button didn't clue me into how to get the stones so I spent a lot of time figuring it out myself.
I may be in the minority on my opinion of the game so I'd recommend others demo the game and make there own decision.
As usual, these are just my opinions. I wish all of you BF gamers a wonderful day.
EDIT: The example of the stones in the quary was a mistake. That happened in another game. The rest of my post was correct. Sorry for the mix up. (again, forgive my spelling mistakes)

When I played this game at the other site , my computer did the same exact thing , I didn't have that problem here , I found the other glitch that wouldn't let you use the skip button , Big disappointment ..OH WELL !!!!

I just played the demo and am torn as to whether or not to buy this game. I like it so far. It's not hard and there's no timer, that's always a good thing for me! I may not be the brightest bulb in the lamp, but I don't see how it could be that short of a game! I played the whole hour, and still have a lot to find and do; at least that's what I'm thinking. What to do, what to do!?!?!?!?!?! It is a cool game, think I'll go for it!

I would like to mention, tho, in BFG's defense, they ONLY charge $6.99 for their games........imagine paying $19.95 for a game you're dissatisified with!

How does the 3d mode work? Do I need to buy glasses?

This is a buy for me too. Really enjoyed the demo, not too easy but not too hard, very enjoyable hour played and look forward to seeing how it ends.

I also was wondering about the 3D glasses? Where do you get them?

Didn't make it through the demo. Graphics too fuzzy - what I thought looked like a coin was actually a beetle. Didn't like the voices, not very interested in the story. I appreciate a lot of thought has gone into this game, but it's definitely not for me. I'm still recovering from finishing Love & Death Bitten. It's a hard act to follow!!!

Where does one get 3D glasses? Do they make the game more enjoyable? How does that work?

 

SPOILER ALERT

[Post New]by nnrobertson on May 6, 10 11:12 AM
Bought the game and finished it today. Definitely on the short side. I enjoy these type of hidden object adventure games. I enjoyed the storyline at first, however was thoroughly disappointed by the end of the game. I don't feel like they did enough to develop the storyline. It was almost as if we were supposed to make assumptions about what happened. For example, when you put the painting together, there's no real explanation at all about the painting's final image and the reason it's there. There's also no real explanation for the item you get once you finish putting the painting together. It's very disjointed. When they're leaving the pyramid, Emily says something like, "can't you see, the forgotten pharaoh is free." What??!?? Where did that come in and how exactly did they free him? Regardless of the storyline, it was an ok game. Definitely glad I did not spend $19.95 on it.

I didn't care much for this game, though there really is nothing wrong with it. The voice acting was very good and the graphics were pretty good but it just didn't pull me into the game play. I think part of the reason is the theme-another Egyptian game. There have been several Egyptian games and I guess I'm just tired of that subject.
