I have tried for an hour, on all scenes and after having checked the walkthru and your posts... so I know where the moth parts are supposed to be...BUT no matter where I search... I cannot find the last body part of the moth... any suggestions... before I go completely nuts....

Thanks

I'm a big HOG fan, but this one is a BIG disappointment. Grainy graphics, undecipherable objects (in some cases) and, although the idea of superimposing **** items is a good one, the overall game plan doesn't attract me.

Dialogue pop ups irritate and it is impossible to leave the game and return to same spot. Have to do an entire chapter over.

Not for me.. I'll wait for great graphics and good plot and great artistry.. We've had a couple of these these last months.. I'm hoping if enough people do not buy these inferior games.. BF will offer us only great ones...

Isn't it lovely to idealize????? :-)

I agree. No fun.. graphics are dismal... objects are, in some cases, so obscure, you must use hint... and I have found that (in the corpse scene) the hint simply tells you where to find the roll of film, not where to find the 4th elusive ticket piece. The HOG's are drawn so dismally that it is near impossible, for my aged eyes, to identify them... and I also found that the pop up dialogue got in the way of the game...

I'm perfectly willing to wait for a good one...
 
 
on my laptop and Windows 7... no problems at all...however, through experience ..when I download I always listen to the Microsoft Gods and allow them to reinstall the game with W7 requirements.. which probably means they install the proper drivers, etc...
I'm stilll on my trial runs and intend to buy it.. It's a fun one.

Sorry to all the fishes out there with problems!!!!!!

I'm on Chapter 2 ( I bought it thinking it told the truth and it had HOG's hidden thoughout) BUT the pieces of paper were the only HOG's I've seen so far.

Nice graphics.. some ok mini games.... but I'm done with logic and math treasers...

Had no problem downloading... and also bought it with credit... but should have tried it for the hour first...

Just came out to purchase. and like a few other I have three game credits from last month so Yes it looks like a buy and looks like a good game for me.

Cheers

Do you click on the rings when they are grey or when they change color???

Do you have to wait for all the rings to show before cllicking? Or do you click tghe first 3 and then the next 4 etc.....

And what do the columns have to do with it??

Told you I'm becoming denser with age >:-))




There will be 8 different sequences. On the first one, three rings will appear one after the other. Note the order in which they appear. When all three are on the surface of the water, click on them in the order they appeared. If you get it right, the next sequence (4 circles this time) will begin. Again, click on those four in the order they appeared. And so on, until you have done this correctly for each sequence, the last one having 8 circles. It's just a memory game, but I had to use paper and pencil and write down the number and position of each circle as it appeared. Good luck!

Halotop I think you can go in the options and turn on hard ware cursors and just get small hands instead of arrows



Thanks Pixiefish... hadn't thought of that...

wonder if anyone has this problem... when, after deciding this mini game is slightly nuts and boring... I press the skip button (when the game allows) everything freezes...

The only way I can get out of it is to use the old dependable ctl alt del buittons...

it's nearly the end of the game.. one I like a lot.... acchhhhhh..

anyone have advice???

ok.. today.. after a worried night's sleep... where all was a snowy cold never never land, I figured out that the puzzle will only allow me to place a correct placement... all good and dandy... BUT now, when I go back to check the position on the tapes... and, of course, there is a new placement, the forms are not solid, they morph and move in place.. but the forms stay in the same spot.. Sounds great, huh?

Now the puzzle refuses to take the forms in the positions the tapes tell me they are in... Arggghhhhh......

Guys.. developers... this is supposed to be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

You exaggerate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I cannot even add my usual :-)) or an lol
