I'm playing it right now and it is fun. I just found my way to another floor and the feeling was very rewarding. I made the mistake of not taking notes such as Reenie suggested and I'm paying the price of backtracking each time I open a safe and get another clue or object. All in all, a very entertaining game..........so far. LOL! Sky.

I was hmm-ing and err-ing over whether or not to buy this game, and I'm so glad that I eventually did. I played it over the weekend and had absolutely the best time with it - so much so that I went straight back and played it all over again. laugh

The graphics are very rich and detailed, I loved exploring every nook and cranny of this house. The satisfying "ting!" and the green light flashing on every time you correctly crack a safe - very rewarding.

Some of the puzzles took just a minute or two. Others involved a lot of head-scratching and brow-furrowing, but they were still fun (well, apart from the evil slider safe and number puzzle, both in the Museum; those just made me bilious).

A keeper, most definitely. thumbsup

Rushes, Sliders make me bilious, too.

Glad to hear you really enjoyed the rest of the game, though. wave

I'm still stuck at the slider safe! lol

I think I'm going to have to admit defeat and get my 10-year-old to do it for me.

Becky, be sure you know the design of the bracketed dollar sign before you start. Think about where the pieces should be. Then, the best way to approach the solution is to start in one corner, get those four tiles right, and then work your way across or down. When you get to the last four squares, they solve themselves.

Thanks -- I know the design (sneaky place to put it, by the way) but I've been focusing on the middle dollar sign figure. I get that right, then can't get the edges right.

I'll try it your way and see if that works better for me! Thanks. thumbsup

I still think they should have put the slider later in the game (like last, maybe).

Give me bonus dynamite to blow up the slider safe. (Hey, maybe they did and I just haven't searched hard enough to find it.)

35 sticks of dynamite and it would be a very short game. laugh

Becky, because of the way that slider works (four pieces move at the same time), you can't easily solve it by working from the center out. You need to start from one corner and work your way in, getting each 4-piece section correct before going on to the next. If you understand this, it is a relatively easy slider.

quick question and if it were posted I do apologise my question is I bought the first game and it seemed to me that it was a "Timed" game you had to be out of the house at a certain time??? that is why I gave safecracker up!
Becky does Safecracker2 have anything thats timed?I cannot tell you how much I hate timed sequence!

Leeana, I haven't played the new Safecracker, but I think I've seen that question before.

The answer was no, you don't have to be out of the house on this one by a specific time.

I hate timed stuff too, but don't think it is an issue with this game.

edit: Here is the thread I remembered
