I don't know if this happened, but I have found that sometimes if I try to DL a game too soon after it is posted I have problems with it. If i wait about 10 or 15 min. to DL the game plays fine. This one works for me.

This game has beautiful graphics and unique game play. I like the introduction of the Word games. I am stuck though. I have reached a point where I have a Clue and now when I click on Hint I am just told to look but i have no idea what I am looking for. I have clicked all over the two areas that seem to match the clue but am getting no place. I am stumped. As soon as I move on, I will have a better idea if I like it or not. Except for this stopper, I was enjoying the game.

It is a bit different certainly to most HOGS and I liked the mini games I met so far.
A few downers - when a message comes on screen about a new area, you cannot get rid of it without going there. Some odd English translations - stub instead of stump for the tree and I spent ages looking for the sausage and had to use a hint in the end.
Am not sure if I will buy it yet, LOL but thought I had been playing for about 5 mins and was amazed to find 30 mins had gone by. Will definitely play out the rest of the demo time later today.

Have downloaded and uninstalled this game twice now. It loads with the name Puzzle Lab on the screen (this game made by puzzle lab?) and will not go any further.

I cannot even get the game to download. I click 'run' on the two popup screens and it goes no further.

Salami would have been more accurate, I guess - but it's still all pork.

Stump for stub would have been better. (I've not seen the golf club / spoon yet).

ETA That spoon object looks much more like a (1, 3, 5) wood.

I'm not experiencing any problems with the game--I downloaded the demo and it's playing fine. Running on Dell with Vista

I did get an alert from my PrevX saying the file was Medium Risk Malware.
But I didn't realize I had the warning until the trial time was through and have experienced no other issues and my computer seems to be running fine. Will check more thoroughly in a while.

I had minor issues with the dialogue, as in some points, when it said click and I clicked (once) on it, it automatically opened the next dialogue bit (which was expected) but closed it immediately as if I had clicked again (at lightning speed) preventing me from reading the whole dialogue.
For once I am interested in the blah blah and I can't read it... maybe I'm being punished for skipping so many game dialogues in the last months?

Maybe she should have looked for the sausage in the house where the pop-up stated:

"It's strange, the door is opened. I will try to come."



(okay, I'm slinking away now before I get myself into some serious trouble lol)
