Hi Guys,

can someone give me a little more info on this game - I've checked out the site, but can't work our whether it's a traditional adventure type game with a story and actors etc. or a collection of puzzles woven together, like a compendium - both are good, and I'm sure it's a great game either way, but a little more info......???

Basically its a point and click. If you run the demo you will see that Peter is extremely devious.
There are no actors per se, but you do have a helper. The idea is to find and solve the various puzzles scattered over Magnetic. Some of the puzzles will lead to even more puzzles and each puzzle gives you a reward.

Not only are the puzzles devilish (but solvable), you get a lot of extras: beautiful scenery, glorious graphics and music, and just tons of extras that you get as you solve each puzzle. Go for it folks. It's a true winner happydance

I just went to Peter's website to order the game, and clicked on PayPal to pay for it. What an ordeal! After a half hour I still haven't completed my order or opened an account with PayPal. They said they couln't verify my credit card, because the 3-digit verification number wasn't right (it was - I tripple checked). Then I went to PayPal's website to register, and they kept telling me my password wasn't correct (it was - I typed it in three times). Finally I just gave up.

I sure would like to order this game, but I've never had this kind of problem ordering on-line before. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> mad

SuMac,

What a dreadful story! I hate it when those sorts of things happen! All I can tell you is that once you make it, PayPal is a joy to use. Too easy perhaps cos I spend far too much smile

You could use Share*It instead - I started out with them when Xiama was first released and I hadn't even heard of PayPal - I've never had a single complaint about them.

e-mail me if you want to discuss things further.

I just placed the order with Share It! It was much easier and quicker. Looking forward to receiving the game!
