My screen resolution is set to 1024 x 768 and I'm using the latest Direct X and video display drivers. So it looks like a buggy game.

When exiting the game from Zone 2.1, I experienced a repeatable crash that said "The instruction at "0x7c91b21a" referenced in memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be written". This only happens when playing the game in "Full Screen" mode. Also "Full Screen" mode messes up the Windows Taskbar for Windows XP.

Well they are offensive to Christians. I surmise you are not one. I've likewise noticed that magic, witches, and the supernatural are prevalent themes in most of the games being developed today. Perhaps you noticed that.

I also agree with Saturn's review, but another mindless hidden object game is what we don't need. This site is chuck full of them and even the other categories like puzzle and adventure have become hidden object clones. It's now even infiltrating the time management and match 3 games. See "Potion Bar" and "The Enchanted Kingdom" for example.

"Sim City" was an awesome game. Now if only the right developer would step up and translate that concept into a casual game worthy of that franchise. Gogii was obviously the wrong candidate for the job.

We will have to wait and see...

Why is it only Game Club Members can download the 60 minute trial?

Why must you pay money to play a demo?

The regular version will be available on all game sites on February 28th.
(A week from Sunday)

I prefer the $ 6.99 price. I know that it will be available in a couple weeks.

I liked the fact that it was less hectic than most "Dash" games. It has a pleasant color palette and the "Serve-All" and multi-task were cool innovations. But I did not like that you could not queue up tasks and there was no "Endless" mode option.

An excellent game! It gets more interesting as you play. I've reached the Garage Sale area (Level 7) and it's quite challenging. Each level offers different styles of playing and there are many trophies to be won.
Thank you Big Fish for providing something that requires the brain instead of yet another Hidden Object clone.

Access Violations, crashes, text errors, slow loading time. Wasn't there any QA testing done on this game?
This must be an embarrassment for Big Fish Games and the NevoSoft team.

Excellent game!
I liked the fact that there was no timer and the strategy came from discovering the correct placement rather than blindly rushing about clicking. I would rather use my head, than wear out my mouse.
Lush graphics and evocative music enhance the peaceful setting of this wonderful game.

I rate this 4 out of 5:

But then why does Big Fish have a timer on the limited demo version?

Is this a new trend with Big Fish Games? You download a very large demo and then if you decide to purchase it, you download an even larger separate installation. You just did this with the new Nancy Drew game.
This is redundant considering the demo already has a timer. Not everyone has broadband, so it seems silly to have to download the game all over again.

I played Tropix 2 over at [removed by moderator]. You can sometimes get the tomorrow games over at [removed by moderator] without being a member.

Every time I go back into the game I get onto this screen. I can't close it, I have to stop the whole program running (CTRL/ALT/Delete). Do I have to buy the game to continue? Is there a bug? I am really enjoying it but loathe to buy it if this keeps happening - any info? Nikki

Hi Nikki,

Unlike most Big Fish Games where you download the full game and purchase the activation, this is only a smaller demo version which ends when you get to the Ivory Room. The demo is only a fraction of the size of the full version which you download when you purchase it.

I really wanted to like this game. The graphics were decent and the setting was different.

Though the poor grammar and sensitive controls give it an unpolished look.

True, the game lacks clear instructions. But does it really require any?
All you have to do is click and drag vehicles as fast as you can the entire time.

Pointless? Monotonous? Boring? Most definitely!
If you enjoy this sort of torment, be prepared for some severe carpal tunnel.

When you download this game, Big Fish issues a warning that the file size is 59 Megabytes.
Curiously enough, after the installation, the game is a whopping 314 Megabytes.

Why should a simple game need to be that size?

Crashes, freezes, and bugs aside, this is a truly horrible game. I am surprised that a well-known developer like Googii would even put their name on it. It's untested and the game play is unbalanced.
On one one level you are requested to supply the deceased with dandelions and there is no option to purchase dandelions from the supplier.
You can set the graphics to a higher resolution, but don't expect it to be saved the next time you start the game.
The ghost chase is extremely annoying and since when do ghosts put you to sleep.

It locked up my computer and then rebooted it. I had to reinstall my Sound Blaster drivers since they got messed up in the process. And yes, I have the latest version of DirectX and my Anti-Virus was turned off.

Wish they would test these games on more systems before releasing them.
