Mainly hog scenes and extremely bad ones. Objects you can barely see badly drawn onto an existing background, some you can't see at all.

I lasted about 15 mins then deleted.

It's amateurish and totally unenjoyable.

Unfortunately I totally agree with the above - it's a definite no buy for me

I loved the bell sound when finding a hidden object; they were exceptionally well hidden and there always seemed to be just one thing I couldn't find. However the hint seemed to recharge quite quickly even on expert mode so it wasn't a problem. Yes the graphics within the HOS are not as crisp as in the rest of the game but not enough of an issue to stop me from buying.

It didn't play full screen so still had the black bars but after a while I didn't really even notice them, I was so immersed in this game! The demonic theme is not something that bothers me; this is a game and not likely to influence me in any least I don't think so

Can't wait to play more of this extremely entertaining game

Totally agree with the above comments - I absolutely loved this game.

Sheerija wrote:Poor Titanic. Any thought or mention of it always brings a lump. The most poignant maritime tragedy in the history of the world. I didn't think I would like it if it was set during the horrors, and reality based. But this is one time I can say I am thankful it is a ghost story that takes place mostly after it has sunk.

Terrific graphics, so clear and distinct and beautifully designed. Easy play with perfect navigation. Sombre music but anything else would be inappropriate. The game seems to be divided into sections, where each ghost creates a portal to shift between past and present, so there's no wandering around through a vast number of locations, trying to remember where and what. Each one is closed after completion. At least that's my impression after the demo.

I like it very much and I think the devs did a very neat job with it. Shall play on and hope it is not too short, as some suspect.

Poor Titanic - I also get a lump in my throat when I read about it or watch a programme - especially now with the 100th anniversary.
Game is very good - it took me approx 3 hours to finish, so not too short. I found it somewhat confusing jumping between time via portals, but nevertheless really enjoyed it.
Would definitely recommend.

I also can't grab the letter P, nor use the lighter on the spiders web. Anybody got any solutions to this?

Absolutely love this game - it's very relaxing and not spooky or dark for a change.

Definite buy for me

The music is beautiful and it has widescreen. I normally turn down the music. The objects are easy enough to find. It is so refreshing to see a different game for a change. I'm so tired of the spooky and creepy games. This game is a buy for me for sure, and a must try. What a lovely game BF, thanks. More Please!

I rate this game: "PIGLET"

Good game. I like it! Hog,Frog,Ihog,Adventure . For true lover's of these types of games

I agree - this is a lovely, sweet and relaxing game Very different from the spooky, dark games of recent - although I also love those
It's a definite buy for me!

And finally I entered the last level and finished, but nothing happened and the last level started again and again. Infinite loop !

My OS is Windows 7 64bit, and the loading time for each stage was around 25 sec.

I am having the same trouble, reached and played last level, but now am stuck in loop.
Anybody know how to fix this?

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing and it hasn't fixed the issue . I checked the Help Pages but could not find anything that applied to this issue. Very disappointed!

If it's the level where you have to demolish the old chemical plant, I have the same problem (((

I've purchased this game, but I'm getting sick and tired waiting for the levels to load!

Pleeeeeease fix this

I have exactly the same problem - anyone know how to get past this level?

My game started fine, music playing, then went black. I had to shut my pc down as nothing else worked. I'm not using Mozilla firefox, so that's not the problem.
Shame. I was really looking forward to playing this game
Anybody else have same problem, and hopefully a solution?
I'm still waiting for my Felix the fish as well

Great graphics and vampire Felix is totally ftw but that's all ultimately meaningless if I can't play the game!

ETA: I figured out that by clicking slightly to the right of the object, I could pick it up. Going into the menu (by again clicking to the right of the button) I set the game to widescreen (ironically by UNchecking the "widescreen" box) and bingo. No more problems.

Thanks Kayleigh, I had exactly the same problem and solved it using your tip above. Really like this game!!

I can't get any further than the first (Bakery) level. I have completed this with a gold star at each level. The only other building that is highlighted is the store. From reading other posts I understand that there should be 5 shops. Can you please tell me how to get to these shops?

The game ends abruptly.... I sat watching credits roll thinking this was some kind of joke!!! It wasn't!! No getting to see the finished house and is the herioine a good guy or is she actually a bad guy?? I am still scratching my head over that one!! If you haven't made the fatal error of buying this game.... DON'T!!!

I absolutely agre with you. It really is the WORST game I have played in a long time Could not believe the ending. Waste of time and money!

This game started out as being different and interesting, however the ending is SUCH a disappointment!! If you haven't bought the game yet, then seriously, DON'T! Waste of money. It is like a book finishing in the middle, no proper ending at all.
