After playing Fiction Fixers: The Curse of OZ, I took another look at FF: Alice. If you, by chance, read my previous opinion - never mind...

After a second look I bought.

Just shows-to-go-you, perception is current reality. I guess the lesson here, for me at least, is to take a second look, unless I'm overwhelmingly convinced a game is really just pure garba'ge. (that's French for garbage)
 
 
Instant purchase.

MCF rules...

This is an excellent game. It has hard puzzles, which I like, the graphics are clear, the music enjoyable. The developers lure you in and it is hard to let go.

Most enjoyable...

4-1/2 out of 5 s.

Definitely not for me.
 
 
Sparkles! That is an immediate No Buy for me.

Riddle me this... How can it be called Hidden Object if the allegedly hidden object is lit up with sparkles?

Every game I Beta I look for sparkles and if they are there I always recommend the add this to the Options screen.

What with all the rave reviews I have to give it a try.

Though not a big fan of Match-3 games, one review said it would change forever the way I think of Match-3 games.

Looking forward to being enlightened.
 
 
Well, I guess it is no CE for me.

I'll wait till SE if not DD.

I wouldn't say awful... but rather, not for me.

I like this game. Bought it...

Tulula? (Bankhead?) Nah...

It is a refreshing break from the dark genera that abound. The art is well done and the graphics are clear and colorful.

The game seems somewhat elementary at first but I found it to be fun. The tasks and objects to find rather relaxing. You are not overwhelmed with helpful sparkles etc. You want a hint you have to ask for it.

(soapbox on)
I don't buy games so I can waste money by using the hints to complete them. I mean why bother? Just look for a walk-through and save yourself some money.

Based strictly on Reviews.

No buy. Straight HOG. Short.

Look again when it becomes the DD...

Maybe as a DD but definitely not full price.

If HOGs didn't sell well they wouldn't keep developing them...


Let it go.

Gotta go for the DD.

The Duke of Earl will be a no buy for me.

With so many HOGs / iHOGs / jHOGs / aHOGs etc being published, I want to wait till something unusual - spectacular - comes along.

Maybe something between Buzby Berkley and the Ten Commandments...

I wonder how long I'll have to wait for the next game of the year?

Picky in Alaska.

I'll let this one pass to dust.

No buy 4 me.

Looked. Seems reminiscent of...

Not for me either.

Sometimes it feels like previewing games becomes and end in itself.

Easy jHog (junkyard HOG)... No buy.

Letting this one go by too.

Seems like there is a drought of decent games this month. I know... we are being softened up for a really, really big beautiful iHog.
