Thank you! I was going crazy looking for a Christmas tree to hang it on!

Drag it over the top left point of the press - some kind of dispenser - and it will work.

I tried the demo but - no cursor! This is becoming increasingly common. Win 7 64 machine, all drivers are up to date. I just won't mess with this problem any more - I just uninstall and don't buy.

Couldn't even get it to start in Win 7 64. Did get one access violation error message. Another disappointment - becoming all to frequent here.Why would anyone even release a new game not compatible with Win 7?

I thought this looked fun, so I downloaded the trial. Even though it says it is supported by Win 7, I had an invisible mouse cursor ( this seems to be a common problem with many games I try.)

Sometimes this can be fixed by using custom game cursor in the options, but in this case it is selected by default and I didn't have a mouse cursor to turn it off to try! So all I could was uninstall it.

I have a good current Vista machine and this game has crashed it repeatedly - when I say crashed I mean a blue screen I have never seen before with system restart. Too bad - seems like a really good game (as much as I can play it before crash). Have to uninstall unfortunately.

Downloaded and started playing - looked interesting, though unpolished.

I had to navigate blind until I got to the menu option for "game cursor" - should have smelled a rat right there if it can't play nice with the mouse drivers.

Got to second level before it crashed my system - Vista with plenty of power to play bigger games than this. Apparently some kind of video driver glitch which locked everything up, then automatically rebooted.

Definitely not ready for prime time. I'll look for the full release.
