Argh, argh, and more argh. I started playing this game yesterday and really like it. Just when I figured out what I was supposed to be doing in one of the mini games, somehow it was solved. I hadn't yet solved it so I don't know if I accidently hit the skip button or what. On to the next mini game and I get an error and the game shuts down. frown

Off to see what I can find out. I haven't looked yet.

Here are some issues that other players experienced.

It sounds like the game has its share of potential glitches.

If your problems persist, I would write to Customer Support for a replacement game code.

I have this game but it's still sitting in my Purchase History and I've never tried to play it, so don't know if it would be problematic for me.

Yes it does stink Ana.

Thanks Marian. I was just over there looking at that. I have also been looking on Steam (which is where I bought the game). A lot of people had problems with it. I haven't yet gone back in the game to see what happens. I'm not ready to find out if it's bad, but at least I was not too far into the game. However, if it works when I go back in I will be leary of it all the way to the end, and I don't like playing that way.

I know what you mean, oldbroad. Once I've had a glitch like that, even I am able to continue, I spent the rest of the game wondering if it's going to bug out on me again. Not a great way to play.

Well, I was able to continue. I was back in the puzzle that had crashed and I didn't have any trouble with it this time. Right now I am stuck and hoping that I just missed something somewhere and not in some glitch. I will check it out again tomorrow. Time to "adventure" now.

Thanks Taintedfury. I hope you are able to get through The Omega Stone one of these days. I'm hoping to replay those two games in the near future.

I liked this game, too. I can't remember if I had any problems with it. I meant to put it on the review list because it was both entertaining and a cut above the norm for me in terms of difficulty.

Fingers crossed you will be able to play on through the game, oldbroad.

Found what I was missing, played awhile and got stuck again. Got out for awhile but couldn't get unstuck so I looked at the guide. Something I wasn't doing. Played some more and am nearing the end but got another game crashing error in another puzzle . Will keep trying though. It's really a pretty good game. Hopefully, I will be able to finish it.

The third attempt got me past that mini game and moving on. I think I have 2 more chapters to go. The other problem I'm having with the game is that sometimes you have to click multiple times on HO items before it registers and picks it up. You can do Match 3 games instead of the HO's but I haven't done that.

It sounds like you just might make it through the entire game. I may have to give it a go one of these days.
