Thanks Ana. These are great games. I think that the one I enjoyed the most was 'The Black Cat'. wave thumbsup

Hi, Ana!

I just finished playing this wonderful game, and the bonus chapter was over 3 hours long. Some of the puzzles were quite time-consuming, but I think that's gotta be a record.

You've gotta love the little mouse, who managed to keep himself entertained throughout the game by eating nuts and doing back flips lol .

I would definitely recommend this game because it is well worth the $13.99 price tag for BFG members and, if you can pick it up during a sale, even better.

All three of the screenshots show a watch down in the lower right-hand corner next to the hint button. Is any part of this game timed, or is that used just to show when the hint button has refreshed?

Hi, Uncle Reg!

If you're talking about what looks like a clock in the lower right-hand corner beside the "Hint" button, that's not even in the game. Nothing is timed, and you can skip any of the puzzles.

I suggest that you download and play the demo to see if you think you'll enjoy it, and BFG has a sale on today so you'll be able to save yourself a few dollars.

Hi, Marian!

Some of the puzzles took me forever to finish, but the bonus chapter is about twice as long as what we normally see. Just when I thought it was about to end, another location was revealed.

For me, this was one of the best games in the series.
