To keep the disk where you want, try clicking outside the circle. Then click inside the circle on the next disk you want to move.

I ended up skipping this puzzle which I really try not to do as I like figuring them out. When I'm stumped, I prefer a hint in the right direction vs giving me the entire solution. In this puzzle, when I clicked on the hints I had available, it just gave me the puzzle instructions again.

If I could have used a hint to at least tell me the correct position for one of the disks, that would have helped me somewhat to find the solution on my own.

Happy gaming!

Bought the SE game with the Spooky Sale this weekend and enjoyed playing it to the end. Yes, there is an ending, although it's a weak one. I don't regret buying the game as the beautiful/colorful/creative graphics, characters, music and overall gameplay outweigh the weak ending.

Still hookt on

Tried the demo for a few minutes. HDO Adventure is the developer. I'm not impressed with the game . I think I'll pass on this one.

You might like Lamp of Aladdin. It's by the same developer as Tibet Quest, but offers the option of Timed or Relaxed mode when you sign in as a player. The game play is very similar to this one and BFG has it. I don't buy too many Match 3 games, but I like (and bought) Lamp of Aladdin.

Cute combo of match 3/hidden object game!

A hidden object scene is added before each match 3 level. Trophies are awarded if all the objects are found.

Cute gameplay, graphics and story. You can choose timed or relaxed mode. Hint system recharges quickly. If you are not a super fast match 3 player, Genie will help.

Love the way Aladdin rides the magic carpet and the sea turtle. Each level gets progressively more difficult. Even in relaxed mode, the bonus levels are timed. So be sure and save some of your power-ups to help get thru the bonus levels. Trophies are also awarded for winning bonus levels.

Well worth the DD price. Thanks BF!

I read the reviews in this forum and thought I might pass, but then played the demo and the hour flew by. Mumbo Jumbo is the developer. They also do the Midnight Mysteries series which I like a lot.

I think this game is easily worth today's DD price. I agree the hidden objects are a bit challenging to find, but I like the different concept and this appears to be a fairly long game.

Don't just rely on the reviews. Give the demo a try.

Bought it!

Below are my original comments when first playing this game. Have played it a few more times since. Great game for the DD price. Don't pass this one up!

Excellent game! Exceptional blend of interactive hidden object, fragmented object, puzzles and adventure. Nice to have the choice of Casual or Advanced mode. Beautiful graphics. Nice music. Good storyline. Lots of gameplay time.

Also, the developer must have a thing for cats. I noticed almost every scene has some type of cat in it. Cute!

I enjoyed Golden Trails: The New Western Rush, so will be giving this game a try.

I never buy the CE versions, as I don't think I'd get my moneys worth out of them. I'm not really into the wallpaper, soundtrack, concept art, etc. and these extras just take up more room on my computer.

All I really care about is the gameplay and I doubt the CE bonus gameplay would equal the extra money spent. I prefer to take the extra money I would spend on the CE version and put it towards a new or different game.

Maybe BF could try releasing both the CE and SE versions on the same day and just see what happens?

That way, all the fishies are free to choose either version and it's a new game for all the pond.

Just a thought.

Thanks for the sale this weekend!

Must have missed this one as a new release. Refreshing change from the dark and spooky HOGs.

Glad to catch it as a DD. Good game. Nice story with interesting characters, good graphics, mini-games and cute features such as shooting gangsters for more hints, collecting badges and clues.

Thanks BF!

Excellent game!

Nice to have the option of timed or relaxed mode. Good graphics. Good music and background sounds. Some hidden objects can be a bit tiny, but managable. Hint system is generous. Good storyline. You even get to submit who you think the murderer is.

Always been a fan of the Agatha Christie mysteries. If you like this game, you might want to try the Murder She Wrote game. It's also a hidden object game and has 5 mysteries you get to solve.

Happy to pick this one up as a DD.

Thanks

Decided to demo this one based on all the great reviews. Glad I did. This is a nice IHOG. Good storyline. Hidden object scenes and puzzles are not too easy and not too hard. Happy to pick this one up at the DD price.

Enjoy!
