Some good reviews in BFG forum, but I think I'll pass on this one. The items in the HO scenes are just too hard to see. I tend to lose interest if I have to rely too heavily on Hints in order to complete an HO scene. Interested to hear what other GB's have to say about the game because otherwise it looks like it might be interesting.

I agree with Sparkle. I'll pass.


I really enjoy mornings. I just wish they came later in the day.

Unfortunately, if the items are that small, I will have to pass on the game, too. I'm already nearsighted enough as it is and don't need to squint any more than I already do. grin

Found the game to be tedious. Back and forth. Items (to me)weren't hard to find, just thought the game was boring and sort of silly.

I finished the hour long demo and just barely got into the second chapter. It will probably be 6-7 hours for me if the chapters are approximately the same length. I am not a big fan of lots of HO scenes but I did enjoy them in this game. The hint button filled really fast so I was not bogged down with trying to find the last objects on the list I had to find. I thought it was a nice change from the lots of darker and scarier ones lately, although I enjoy those too. Spent a punch card credit and looking forward to the rest of the chapters.
