I totally agree - I *love* games with a macabre tone, as well as ones that integrate varied types of puzzles into the HOG format.

I'll admit, though - I was *very* surprised at the ending! but in a good way. : )

thank you!! this was one of the best and most enjoyable games I've ever played!

I'm having the exact same problem - Challenge 61 crashes my game. every. single. time.

I downloaded - and played - the Mac demo, then I purchased the game, which is crashing at the 1st totem in Chapter 5: the Photo Slide one. I really don't want to go to another site and repurchase and download this game again, which I was **really** enjoying. I'm hoping that BFG will give us some relief here.

I just downloaded the trial, and will *not* be purchasing it, although HOGs are my favorite genre.

there are too many dialogue screens.
the hidden object screens are not clever, they are cluttered and illogical.
some of the items are impossibly tiny and/or hidden by other objects.
the storyline is boring.

but maybe it's just me.

I got it by playing the last level, which states its best time is 33 minutes. I believe I got it about the 40 minute mark.

those stars indicate how close the animal is to producing its product, i.e., turkey eggs, sheep wool, cow milk, etc. when the max number of stars is reached, the product is available on the screen.

thanks for letting us know this is an issue that is being looked at, because I'm unable to make irons in endless mode, as well as the others.

everything else seems to work just fine, though.

this game rivals MCF for theme, playability, attention to detail (nicely moody!), graphics, and general interest - as in, keeping mine.

definitely glad I purchased it - and I really really like the in-game help function.

I'll want more of these Penny Dreadfuls games.

insipid game with annoying music. very poorly done. I couldn't even bring myself to finish the hour demo, and I uninstalled it. bleh.

downloaded the demo. after creating my profile, I started to play - and since it's the demo, I opted to "skip" the opening dialogue scenes.

that took me all the way to the end - where I was to "identify the suspects." wow. that was a neat trick.

so I started again (mind you, all of ONE MINUTE has passed), this time letting the opening dialogue play.

nope. game crashed - error screen.

I now had *58* minutes remaining on my hour demo.

tried again. crashed again.


too bad. HOs are my favorite game genre.

me, too. I'm missing the last light blue gem in the Mayan/Venice scenario. the hint gem does nothing. bummer.

ok, I messed up near the end, and didn't get all the mushrooms before I started collecting the other items for the rest of the obelisks. I can't put anything back, and now I don't have room to get the rest of the mushrooms. if I quit, it saves, so that's no help. any suggestions?

I love them - they are my absolute favorite **** games.

my only problem is there aren't enough of them!! : )

no other games are as enjoyable, easy to play, yet complex enough to take more than a couple of hours to finish.

I'm not usually a fan of tycoon games, but I loved this one - it was actually do-able, not impossible to beat. and the characters are adorable!

very disappointed in this game. couldn't even finish the 1-hour trial - 22 minutes in, I had to delete it.

up in the right-hand corner of the map (near the doctor) are pine trees that spawn both cinnamon sticks and nutmegs.

I love this game!! finished it last night - had to buy it after the demo timer ran out - and can't wait to play it again! I especially love that it's a quest game, and that instead of killing creatures you encounter, you get to make them love you! : ) my grandkids will absolutely go crazy for this one!

less than 2 minutes before deleting the game. finished the first HO screen, clicked on the second, and...

blue screen.

I don't need that kind of nonsense.

me. I can't open the download at all. every time I click on the button on the Game Manage, I get a little "bloop" sound, but that's it. oh, and then Game Manager locks up for about 5 seconds.
