I bought this because I thought it was going to have a lot of different games to play. But it doesn't really. A lot of them are the same, just different "rooms" you have to go to. And some are really hard because the timer is so fast. But in the end, you get to play about 3 different games, going from deck to deck until you're on the top deck. But, it's pretty easy to complete each segment of the game and then you have to start again under a different "profile" (name). So it's pretty short.

All this being said, I'm going to keep it on my game stub because I like to go back to it from time to time for something different from my usual M3's or HOG's. Just poker - either poker hands or 21.

I'm not going to highly recommend this game but it's worth a try and like I said, go back to from time to time for a change.

I got stuck on Level 73 for about 10 tries. I lost count after a while and was ready to throw in the towel. One card wouldn't turn over. It wasn't the same card every time, it was on different parts of the board. No choice but the keep replaying. Finally, I got them all turned the right way round.

Same old, same old. One card up or down, pretty much the same as other solitaire games. There are a few mini-games that are different and a little more interesting. I thought "Fairway" was better and all the Jewel Quest Solitaire games are way better. No buy for me even at a DD.

Spent about 10 minutes of going back and forth between the game and the "help" and still couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do. It didn't make any sense and even when I kind of figured it, it was just boring. No buy for me.

Here we are a year later. There is music. In fact, I can't turn the darn music off. I go into options and turn off the music and half way through a game, there it is again. A little annoying when you're playing (with no timer) and watching tv at the same time. Otherwise, I really like the game. I thought there was no end to it but it does end and beginning it again is fun. It's pretty standard but I like just playing cards without having to do other mini games in between. I also like that you can't move forward until you get a perfect on the one you're doing now. A bit like Jewel Quest solitaire but without the M3. By the way, the newest Jewel Quest solitaire is way better than the first two. But BFG only has it in Mac formula.

A buy for me on Royal Challenge. Love it.

Bought it! I love all the Fishdom games and this one is just great. The kids love it too. They prefer M3 but I like HOG's and M3's. Fishdom gives me all of that. This is a total HOG with no M3. There are no minigames just things to buy for your fishtank. And, once you have finished the 3 available, you can get more! A never-ending game, really. Worth the DD today though if I had found this before, I probably would have paid full price for it. I had no problems with loading it, it was quick and easy. I'm on Win7 with this and I have an i7 laptop I play it on. Again, no problems.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that feels the frustration of playing a level over and over. However, each retry is interesting too. Took me about 20 to get off one of the 9 hole levels. LOL. But it's fun and I can play a little each day and have fun with it. I bought the CE version because you can buy more courses and it was on the July 4th 1/2 price sale. That helps, BFG!

I thought I'd just play the demo for something to do and ended up buying the game. It's really easy, relaxing and fun. I'm on the "casual" mode of the game since I don't like timers. It's a little like the Jewel Quest Solitaire games without the M3. Straight solitaire with a little strategy involved (only a little) and it keeps your mind active. My grandkids will probably enjoy this too. I've only played an hour and it probably gets more difficult as it goes on but I really like the game. A buy!

I thought this was going to be a Slingo game but it isn't really. It's more of an Adventure/Puzzle/Hidden Object. Big disappointment. I really like the Slingo games but this one had a couple of Slingos in the demo but that was it. So, no buy for me. If you like that type of game, great.

I already commented on this game once but since it's today's DD, I'll comment again. I love this game. Have played it through a few times but it just keeps going and going. Like that! There's enough differences between the boards to make it interesting. Some are more difficult than others, I like the way the board moves though. Cool. Great game, have not regretted buying it many moons ago.

I don't find it boring. I think it makes a nice change - no time limits (unless you want it), lots of words to find and it's challenging enough. I too like Bookworm and Word Twist (not available on PC on BFG) but this is just different. It's a buy for me. I love a good word game.

OK, never mind. I found the clue for the combination. Duh - just didn't realize what I was looking at. So, done and done. LOVE this game. Don't miss it.

I ended up buying this from another site. It's been available for PC since 2009 and if BFG hasn't got it yet....well, it may be a while and I couldn't wait. If someone knows how to figure out the combination to the safe at the very end, please let me know. It doesn't show how to open it or even a hint as to the combination. Very difficult ending without a clue or two, folks. This is a great game and I really hope that BFG gets it for PC soon. Love all the Jewel Quest games! JQS3 can be played untimed as to the solitaire games but not the M3 jewel swap. That's timed but you can extend the time as long as you have enough points. Not difficult to do. Buy!

Don't think I'll even bother with the demo if all it has is timed modes. I'm a little tired of only being able to play part of a game because I lose to the timer. Not fair and not worth the money. So sorry, BFG, no buy for me unless it comes out with an untimed option. Love the chain or string type M3s though.

Well, that was funny. I downloaded the demo only to find out I only had 8 minutes left. So I played to to see if there was a reason I didn't buy the game originally. I enjoyed the 8 minutes. I think it was more because I already had 2 other Cradle games and they are pretty similar. This is a little different because it uses chain or string matches rather than a straight swap. I hadn't played the other Cradle games for a while so I went ahead and bought this on the DD. It's worth the money. I like the chain style like in Azkend (there is a new one of those too) and Elements (I and II). Dreams of a Geisha also uses that style though that one has other styles from which you can choose. Anyway, it's a buy for me. But only on the DD, otherwise, probably not.

Played the demo and bought the game. It's a really nice little distraction. I love playing slots but not at casinos that require real money. This is cool. It's not that complicated: you play slots. When you win, you can can then bet your winnings on Blackjack, Roulette or just gamble it on red/white/suit. It's really simple. If you don't want to bet your slots winnings, just keep going. I'm up over $3,000 right now. All because of the bonuses. I think it's fun.

HdO - no. That lets me out completely. I need one more game this month but I'll find something else. I hate that constantly reeling display. And yes, whoever said BFG should actually read these comments - good point but I think they actually do sometimes. Let's hope that this is one of those times. No buy.

I played for about 1/2 of the demo time and bought it. I have Azkend original and this is sort of the same but different. The graphics are better. The story is a little more interesting and the scenes are animated. My only issue is the timer. It's a little on the fast side. I finished the original Azkend with a timer but this one seems to be set a little faster than the original. The power-ups are similar. All iin all, I like it. It'll take me a while to get through the whole thing put I shall persevere.

Never mind, found it. There is a small X in the upper right corner. Weird way of doing it though.

How on earth do you exit this game? I hit exit and it took me to the main menu which makes me continue playing or change my options. No exit! I ended up having to start my task manager and the old ctrl, alt, delete button to get out of it. That's not right.
