Thanks Kelvarda- that did the trick and I learned something!

Game downloaded quickly but I can't see anything because the background is so dark. Any way to lighten up the picture? I do not have this problem with any other games.

I can't see in the main room to find the glass shards. I can see the window when I zoom in but the rest of the room remains dark. Is there a light somewhere I am not seeing?

I am in the minority also as I enjoyed this game. A little dark and hard to see the objects at times but it's different! I also have not figured out what the little girl is for but I rather liked seeing her tiptoe through the game.

Did not have any problems downloading but it would not work in hard mode for me. I went back and played it in easy mode and that solved the problem.

Every time I click the hint button it takes me to a clown's face missing its nose. I can't find the ball OR the basket although I have found everything else. Help!

I missed it also. Where can I go to see the new format?

This one is a refreshing change and I love it! The music fits the upbeat theme and the story is fun and interesting. I am three quarters of the way through and already sad that it is almost over. Am finding that I really like frag games.

Well... I get a bit frantic when I am playing with a timer so that was the very first negative for me. Also the objects were really hard to see so, much like an earlier poster, I just clicked away merrily and sometimes did not even recognize what object I had discovered. Played for ten minutes and was feeling eye strain so I am going to delete.

But, there have been several really good games in a row so I am a happy seahorse.LOL

I'm getting the pink flashing screen also and it is giving me a headache! Never had this before and it is very annoying. I'll try reinstalling it but don't have high hopes. Odd as the huge game from yesterday plays just fine.

after battling through Fallen Shadows. Well done graphics, cute characters and much easier on the eye finding things. Found I could ignore flashing arrows after a bit and really enjoyed the trial. Sadly I will be purchasing this game also even though I swore there would be no more this month. Oh well....
I like the idea of the game but the screen is just too dark to see the objects well. Add that to the fact the cursor has a mind of its own and I could not find the options to chose my regular cursor and there is far too much conversation for me, so it makes a no-buy for me also.

Picked both of them up but now one has disappeared and I can't play the next section until I find it. Very frustrating.

I'm having the same problem also. First four objects are on the wheel and fixed. Last one will not go on and the bell rang to say it was the correct balance. Very frustrating and I don't really want to start all over again. Help!

Just finished the demo and I really like the game. The movement does not bother me at all but the white rectangles that pop up here and there do. Learned to just ignore them but it does take away from the enjoyment of the game.

Will I buy it? Depends on if they can get rid of the white spaces as the 'difference' of this game is really appealing to me. It's a little quirky and I don't mind a familiar story line. After getting used to the hints, I also liked that aspect rather than a cache of objects to figure out how to use.

Same here with the white rectangles. Kind of annoying. Game is running but I have yet to find where you look for clues. I'm going to persist and see if it improves as I go along as I like the storyline.

I've played twenty minutes and it is just too slow and tedious. I'm really frustrated as I've not had great luck with many of the HOG or adventure games offered in the last several weeks. Either they will not fit my screen, they won't play at all or they keep freezing up. Have done all the suggestions and I really think it must be Big Fish and not my computer. Need to go looking elsewhere I guess

Then click "apply" and you should be good to go.

I did this and it fixed the resolution problem but the game is still like wading through a big vat of molasses. Very slow and jerky.

Exact same problem here. Intro, then black screen and dramatic music that just keeps playing through the loop. I'm running XP also.

I really liked this game. It was light and fun and whimsical. Just like opening a fairy tale book with wonderful illustrations when I was a kid. Would not like a daily program of this type of game but, for a change, it is refreshing and uplifting.

It is possible to go too far in being politically correct but this one is so blatant in its derogatory,stereotypical depictions of Mexicans and African Americans ! I'm Canadian and don't mind the odd 'eh, frozen North, etc' joke but there is a line and this game crossed it. Do they not review theses games first?
