Hi Renee & sierramindy wave

I think you have a choice of three modes to play in at the beginning of the game - one of them I think gives you the chance to play without being timed - I just can't remember which one - maybe another GB can help with that?

Renee, I hated those puzzles in Missing! & banging my head on a wall would have been more fun!!! rotfl

I gave up on Secrets of Atlantis because of the last puzzle too,I enjoyed the game just couldn't get that last puzzle.I liked Voyage until I got to the math part I tried for days,then finally gave it up! wave

Good topic! This may keep me from buying Atlantis.

I quit on Conspiracies (boring), Indigo Prophecy (controls), and 80 Days (could not get past a "sneak" part in the Japan part (even with 3 other people also trying with me).

Now I'm worried about Voyage which I haven't started yet.

Thanks for this info, Boomers.

Chrissie -- if you play 80 Days on "Tourist Mode" then you don't have to worry about the clock.

The final puzzle in Secrets of Atlantis I got on the first try and it seemed very easy. Sounds like I had beginner's luck. laugh

Hi oldman, I'm starting to feel that way about Agatha Christie's Orient Express. I didn't buy it, I borrowed my brother-in-law's and believe me he can have it back. I've looked all over the place on forums about how to get past where I'm stuck gone through I don't know how many walkthroughs. It's got to be the most frustrating game I've ever played. scared

StarLite maybe you should try posting in the Hints forum if you are stuck in the game. We might just have an answer for you.

thanks texaslady, I think I'll give that a try. I've read every message on here about it, slight problem, my brother-in-law keeps pestering me for the game back. If he takes it back before I finish it, I hope he gets stuck in the same place. It would look good on him. I'll check it out, thanks again.

I really enjoyed 80 Days, once I got used to how it worked. Currently I am working on The Secrets of Atlantis. I'm at the part where you have to solve a slider puzzle while trying not to get caught by the guy in blue. The slider I like but the not getting caught is kind of nervewracking... One other game I started though is kind of just sitting on my hard drive. I haven't given up yet on Nancy Drew - Danger by Design - but it has been sitting idle for a few months now. I am only at the beginning but have to make some tea and found it to be kind of frustrating - so there the game sits. I have since played and enjoyed other games: Myst V, Murder on the Orient Express, Time Stand Still, Tunguska, Al Emmo, and some free games. But I just can't bring myself to get back to Nancy yet. Does it get better? think

Thanks, Becky, it will be the Tourist Mode for me when I get around to 80 Days. At present, I'm playing (or more accurately, putting off playing) Echo! The cave scenes are just not too interesting, nor are the puzzles.

And I loved Voyage! I played it through 3 times in a row. I just thougt it was hilarious!

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Didn't care for Missing, 80 Days, and got tired of being called a Deviant in Atlantis Evolution and never could get out of the forest.

Murder on the Orient Express wasn't quite as good as And Then There Were None in my opinion but I did enjoy the game to completion.

Erinus, I'm sitting on the same Nancy Drew. I did the tea, but got tired of running around trying to buy things. frown
This is a good post, I may not bother with Voyage and the ones that have timed puzzles. I don't mind a challenge, but for me, if it ain't fun, it ain't a game! laugh

Agon - I got to the point where there was a sort of Chess like game and stopped, and Forever Worlds - it just stank.
