Hi, Ana!

I really loved the game (especially Arthur), but thought it was way too short. It only took me 3-1/2 hours to play the main game, and I didn't skip any puzzles or use the Hint button. I've been playing the bonus game for about 20 minutes, so I don't know how long it is.

The bonus chapter is equal to a few chapters in the game so it's a good addition. Glad you are enjoying it. I love Arthur! He looks so real!

The game is fun but when I attempt to talk to someone the dialog repeats like a stuck record and the music does the same thing. It's annoying! I have to turn the sound off. Maybe it's my computer. Anybody else else having this problem? Other than that I am enjoying the game. smile

I don't leave any sound on when I play so I can't answer that but hopefully someone else that has played can. Do you have an integrated sound card? That causes audio issues in a lot of games.

Ana, I have no idea what an integrated sound card is! crazy LOL So I can't answer that! All of my other games sound just fine. It only seems to be this game. But there was another game that I played recently which did the same thing. But I can't remember which game it is! I am almost thinking that it too was an ERS game. So maybe their games are a little different? Oh well I am pretty far into the game so it's not a big deal. I can live with it! wave

Penny, Checked in on the BFG Game Forum and see that there are a few others experiencing issues with the sound in this game. You may want to post in the Technical Problems thread just to add your voice in case this is a fixable glitch.

That's a good suggestion, Sparkle. Contacting Customer Support would also be a good idea. wave

Do your speakers or headphones plug into a sound card or into the mother board of your computer? If they plug into the mother board they are integrated and not a separate card. These tend to have difficulties in some games.

Too distracting for me. I hardly ever play without writing at the same time, so I listen to music or the TV instead.

Hi, Ana!

I finally finished the game and thoroughly enjoyed it, but I was disappointed in the length. The bonus chapter took me just over an hour to play, so it was about 4-1/2 hours in total.
