You are doing incredibly well. You have gotten way beyond the levels achieved by a lot of players.

I am on Chapter 78 and will play some more tomorrow.

EDIT: I played quite a bit today and am now on Chapter 96. I am going to save the rest for another day. These last ten levels never get any easier.

OMG Marian. I have been stuck on Chapter 88 and failed it 49 times already. I get really, really close but... pirate

Most players seem to never get as far as you have! bravo

I am on Chapter 98 now, but am taking a relaxing break to play Ice Cream Mania. lol

I will get back to Caribbean Hideaway, though, when my muscles untense!

There was one level of Caribbean Hideaway that I had 2 seconds remaining when I beat it. There have been several really close calls like that one.

Yes, for me too. Several times I JUST beat it. My arm and shoulder hurt AND the last few nights I have been dreaming about the game ALL night!!

I am confident I will eventually finish the game but I was only hoping to play as filler at night when I was too tired to play something else. I have gotten hooked though and it is my main game being played, so I hope it doesn't take months.

It is addictive, isn't it? No matter how hard the level you just got through, the next level still beckons and it's difficult to resist.

It's a good idea to take breaks, though. I had one TM game where I was having fun, but I guess I was just too tensed up and ended up having a painful muscle spasm in my lower shoulder. Somehow I don't think that's what the developer ended...at least, I hope not!

EDIT: Just finished the game. pirate

Think you're so cool don't ya? cool

I am still on Chapter 88. I have tried it 100 times, no exaggeration. I am keeping track so if I missed writing something down it could even be more. This was all today. It is 3:46 am and I have been at this since 11:00 am, on and off. Not very long breaks, but some.

I bow down to you Marian. You are the queen of the Caribbean Hideaway!! bravo

pirate

Wait, that's a lie. I tried 22 times on Friday, the other 78 were Saturday. (I had to get out of bed to edit this!)

I am getting old, so it's nice to know that I can still be cool at something. lol

The game was released on Big Fish in 2008 and I have played it off and on since around 2009, so I have had many years of experience with it. The only other match 3 game I have found to be almost as unforgiving in the latter stages is the original Cradle of Rome - and I never finished that one. Maybe someday I will get back to it.

Someone who is a whiz at these games posted this about Caribbean Hideaway on the BF forum:

Quote:
I finally finished...it took a complete restart before I could. What a tough game! Normally I don't mind if a game is timed, but as fast as you have to go near the end, it doesn't seem like a very accessible game to many. That aside, if you don't mind a serious challenge, this is a unique and well thought out game that can be played over and over.


If you are getting really frustrated (and who wouldn't be at this point?), maybe get away from the game for a while and go back to it when you are feeling more kindly disposed towards it. That helps me sometimes.

Ah, here it is. I couldn't see it last night with my bleary eyes. praise

I bet you're cool about a lot of things. Is cool even a word anymore? I don't know the current language. duh

I wonder why that person (in your quote) would have to do a complete restart. How would that help? That is one thing I don't like about the game. When you click play, it asks if you want to continue or start over. I am afraid I will accidently click start over. eek

I DO need to find some self control and stick to it when I tell myself, just one more try. yes

Though I was getting a little frustrated last night (when I needed to clear only 2 tiles), the game is fun so you don't feel the frustration so much. You have me really nervous though about the rest of the game. I still have a long way to go! eek

Arr Matey pirate
