I have completed Chapters 1 - 10 filling all the ecto vials. I've also completed all the bonus scenes. I'd like to know when the Heart is awarded. The dialogue for the characters has mentioned it especially when I "received' the book. It's never appeared in my inventory.

I have a quest for 9.4 to complete four Blitz modes, but the vials are all filled.

RE: Dark Manor--2305025

Earlier today I requested assistance with one of the Attractions I purchased. Thank you for your response.

I logged out and logged back in since then. Now I noticed that the amount of gold is 30 less than it should be. I have not used any of it. There should be over 50.

The counters seem to be very buggy today. Please correct my gold total and check the counters.

Thank you.

RE: Dark Manor--2305025

I purchased a "Buy-a-Smooch" Attraction. About 3 hrs. ago, it stated that the time left before summoning was 2 hrs. and 15 min. The clock now says that the time left is 7 hrs. and 51 min.

Please check on the objects. confirm the accuracy of the time clocks.

Thank you.

When the game was first introduced last year, I really didn't think I would like it. I would've preferred a story line set in a location other than NOLA. I decided to give it a try a few weeks ago. I agree that it's a wonderfully imaginative game. Developers constantly add scenes & little seasonal items. Since game advancement does become quite slow as a user's progress increases, the sales are a nice incentive. Users can maintain control over their expenditures as part of their entertainment budget. Here are my observations & recommendations:

1. Android OS -- I have a Kindle HD. I would love to play the game on it since the resolution would do the game graphics justice. It would also free up my Lenovo laptop for other things.

2. Manor Paint -- It's a really great idea with inexhaustible ideas for future scenes. Unfortunately, it's 40G for a one-time shot. Either provide a toggle option for users or remove this feature altogether. AND give refunds to the users that have wasted their money to date.

3. Casino -- The game wouldn't be complete without a riverboat casino cruising downriver during the night scene. This is an ignored resource that developers need to address. I recommend considering this feature a little more because the jackpots are too few & far between for many, non-existent for the rest of us. I suggest allowing users the option of "cashing in" their chips for gold or silver since the "currency" has no real world value violating gaming laws. There is also the option of increasing the number of wild cards or reducing the number bullet holes.

4. Neighbors -- The option to obtain neighbors & visit them was an excellent feature. It allows me the opportunity to see how others have "developed" their properties. It can be more user friendly, too, because it's very time-consuming after acquiring so many neighbors. I recommend adding "go to" or "view all". The SORT option is nice. I don't think it's very accurate. There's room for improvement.

5. River -- It's an unused resource. A manor home built next to the Mississippi R. in NOLA would have a boat dock. Adding the feature would allow developers to use their creativity for all the related design options: fishing boat, shrimping vessel, fishing off the dock, etc. If developers have the opportunity to open the other side of the river for purchasing & expansion, users could build little drawbridges for the walkers to use.

One of my neighbors is "Dragonsweyr". When I visited today, I noticed that they had purchased the Mardi Gras Manor Paint.

It was available for view as of 1400 CDT.

It's nice to look at albeit short-lived.

I tried the Manor Paint option.

I purchased the Halloween theme. I'm assuming it applied as it should although I was expecting something else). Once purchased, I thought that the option acted as a toggle so that I could change appearances once I had purchased it. That's not the case.

After returning to the original appearance, I gave up the option of returning to the new theme without purchasing it again.

40 gold wasted. Once purchased, don't change to any other appearance. And it really doesn't "paint" the manor. The scene has elements added: spider webbing all throughout, a huge black spider on the front of the manor, a cat on the roof, and a variety of Halloween items in the unpurchased plots.

I'm very disappointed in Manor Paint. I don't recommend it to subscribers.

===========================================

Visiting Neighbors

I suggest modifying the neighbor screens so that they're more user friendly for the users. Add a "go to" option for the pages. Users should be able to "see all" or "go to" a specified page. A good example of this option is alternet.org

Dark Manor - 2305025

I have a Kindle Fire HD 8.9". Some of the Bigfish games are available for the Kindle thru the Amazon store. I haven't seen Dark Manor on that list.

When can the game be developed for Android OS on the Kindle Fire HD or HDX?

The design is beautiful. My cat even loves the games. Quest is difficult, but I was able to complete it 100 percent. Zen is mellow, addicting. Butterflies is fun and can be a little annoying when so many butterflies appear with no way to release them.. Poker can be a typical poker game -- never a good hand when it needs to appears perfectly named. Lightening, Ice Storm, and Diamond Mine are destructive to any joy As for HELP screens -- there are none. HINTS just tell the user where to find the next match. They do not offer any real game play hints.

I expected so much more from an alleged 5-star game. There is just not enough time to accomplish anything or reach a high enough level. If I get 100K points, I did good. 200K points -- I am in shock

Clocks continue counting down during the cascades regardless of how long they last. It wastes too many precious seconds. The frustration destroys the fun.

Suggestion: Breakeven on the game and move on to bigger and better in R&D
OR
allow current owners to download a patch that will stop the clock.

Overall: I expected better. Cannot recommend as a purchase.


 
 
I seem to be stuck in one of the catacomb rooms. I worked my way into the room with the wolf statue. I've provided the offerings & the complete amulet. My inventory includes 3 pieces of the silver plate, the 2 pieces for the bullet mold, the gun, & a chain.

I know I'm supposed to find a set of scales. I reviewed every screen available to me, but the "Hint" message always states "Nothing to do here".

Any assistance is much appreciated.
