level 30

Level 30 is a hidden object level. It will not let me pick up any of the items. I played the prior hidden object levels with no problems, but 30 won't work.



Same problem!

Very frustrating.

Can't move past this now.

Single clicked, double clicked, exited out and re-entered. Nothing works.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. TIA

I will not be purchasing game 5 until there is a fix for game 4.

Will not be throwing good money after bad.

I am extremely surprised that BFG is allowing this to happen.

Customer service used to be a shining star here.

Such a shame.

Nice to know.

Little tidbits like this are why the forums are so great!

Thanks CHall2002

And thanks Big Fish!

I have not had this happen.

Just curious...

At what age did the golden child grow hair?

In which game?

I usually really enjoy M3's and especially ones with building and other little side games included.

As others have pointed out;

Nice clear graphics.

Tutorial overkill.

Variety on the boards.

Sounds decent, right?

Just doesn't work for me.

Spinning coins are too much of a distraction.
Perhaps if they all spun all the time... but they just spin randomly, causing the eye to skip over to see what it is missing.

The coins don't travel down the board. This has a tendency to block moves that you would normally get.

I would almost be tempted to not call this a Match 3. Though, not sure what I would call it.

The purpose is not to make matches and match 3 or 4 or 5, but rather to make the connection next to the coins. Any other matches are really of no use. The scoring doesn't seem to have any purpose either. Only the coins matter.

The coins let you buy buildings for the ghosts. You are only allowed a few choices at a time, about 4 I believe, the others are locked.

So, you have maneuvered the board to knock down the coins and you choose which building you want to build... and it is placed where the game wants it, not where you want it. Then you start over again.

Like I said, this game just doesn't do it for me.

I like this one.

I have enjoyed the previous Build-a-lot games.

The mystery idea sounds fun.

This one goes on the to buy list.

Thanks Devs & BF!

I like this one.

I am impressed that the Devs spent the time to hear what the players had to say.

Keep up the good work Devs & BF!

I went from 12 to just now finishing 22 levels.

I was quite amazed and proud!

Now I realize this was nothing...

I also realize, I have NO desire to play long enough to get any higher than I just did.

2000 level? Sheesh!

This game is "Be a King" revamped to "Be a Cowboy".

Still working through the first Be a King so this is a no buy for me.

Thank you NIMHURCHU, for the great review.

I, also, bought this at the DD price today.

Had never seen, nor heard of it.

Except for the eye strain, I really enjoyed my hour, and was bummed enough when it was over to buy it.

Someone in the other 'review' area suggested a different screen resolution, I am going to try it out. Perhaps 600x800? or the other way around?

I would have to call this one 'old fashion fun'.

Thanks for sending out the "Oldie, but Goodie" BF.

Pretty to look at

but didn't play well on my machine.

Choppy, jerky motions that were in slow motion,

so I would get caught by the bad guys every time.

Very frustrating.

Too bad, sounds like others are really enjoying it.

Having the same problems.

Can't see the full HOS list.

Cursor sits significantly above and to the left of where it should be.

Seems as if I have been downloading this game for years.

Thinking that it must be a good game, as it is always popping up on my 'you might like this list'.

Anyway, most disappointing that I won't get to experience this one.

I really love this game. I don't particularly like the mini-game where you take the falling pieces to fit in the "box." (I've figured out a trick, though.)



Please do share?

I found the interface really difficult, or at least counter-intuitive. I lost count of how many clicks I had to do to select each challenge. When I had finished today's challenge I was rewarded with an extra memory game - could I find it? Could I 'eck-as-like.

Surely this game is aimed at people of a certain age, worried about their declining cognitive ability? Well isn't it? What I don't need is loud pointless music, a mad badly animated professor and wow shiny bright colours. The game looks like it's been designed by cool, trendy, just out of college 20 year olds who think anyone over 30 is old and anyone over 50 needs TO BE SPOKEN TO IN A VERY LOUD VOICE and called dear a lot

Right, rant over, I'm going to rest my dear old head somewhere dark and peaceful, put on my woolly socks, drink Horlicks and forget about all this computer shennanigans - because I'm obviously way too old.

Of course, if this is designed for 5 year olds who want to improve their cognitive ability then I apologise, and well done to the devs who got it just right!




Thanks nellie,

I am feeling too old and worn out after that bit of mental gymnastics to explain what you just said.

Thanks for saving me the effort. hehe

So, there are some good ideas floating around in this 'game' but nothing quite hit the mark.

If concentration is the point, then some guy off to the side waving his arms around and emoting just is not helpful, nor wanted.

Actually left that game a bit miffed, annoyed that they had wasted their time and mine.

Does anyone actually play these before they send them out?

If so, I say, fire the 'yes men'.

Moving on (with my cane, of course)

Very cute!

And NOT a simple child's game.

I predict many reviews of "too childish, quit after 5 minutes".

Those people will have not given this game a fair shake.

I challenge you to get through the first 20 levels (I did this in 23 minutes).

You can play very casual, or you can go for every possible point available, which takes quite a bit of brain power.

I would actually call this a logic/puzzle game.

Whatever you call it, it is fun and challenging!

I recommend it.

This game has great potential, just doesn't reach it

Pet peeve of match-3 games for me is staring at a big board with tons of pieces looking for that one or two sets that will match up. If I wanted to hunt & find I would be playing a hidden object game.

The cursor is just not accurate enough, many times dropping the first unit in a line.

Would have be nice to have had options to go with swap or line up or explode, but I think this is a bit before these ideas became more popular.

I am curious to see what this Dev is doing these days... Off to check this out now.

What a fun game!

I, unlike others here, don't like playing platforms on the computer, that is what Nintendo is for LOL

Still... loved the voice-overs, loved the humor.

Thank you for putting together such a fun game for such a great purpose!

I hope it made big bucks for the kids!

Post game review

I really enjoyed this game.

Got a little lost a few times, but with the hint button, I was back on my way.

I enjoyed the variety of things to do.

And loved the puzzles!

Each time I found one I was thrilled! Some better than others, just a fun change of pace.

I recommend this game.
