I enjoyed finding the morphing objects too, although I did not find all of them, so I will replay the game at some point.

It wasn't my favorite of the MCF games, but I thought it was well worth playing, and I too look forward to seeing what they do with it next year. wave

Just finished the game and have mixed feelings. I think it is because some aspects of the game were good, others not. For example, I loved the fact that the puzzles were animated, but hated the way they floated around. I like my HO's all in one spot, with interaction, didn't like having to more around to find them all. Loved placing the drawings. Loved the map, but you were unable to walk to the different locations if you wanted to. Don't like the integrated bonus content, felt like it was just part of the game, not extra. Always love morphing objects. Finally the SG was terrible, showing only a small section. There were times I was past the point the SG showed, would have preferred to be able to go and forth in the SG. Overall well made game but, not going to be my favorite.

Just finished the game and I must say I enjoyed it throughly except for the floating puzzles, I did not like them at all. After two of them, I skipped the rest. I found them very tedious and nerve racking. I hope this does not become a regular part of the upcoming games.

Hi Shy, are you still stuck? Could you explain exactly what area/chapter you are in when you talk about the basement? wave

I can't remember do the morphing items go away or are they always there so you can go back to areas to find them? Thanks

Once you unlock the morphing objects, they remain there for you to find. wave

Finally found time to get started with this game. It's amazing! So many outstanding qualities. All I can say is, if you haven't made up your mind yet, don't hesitate any longer. I can't think of any reason someone would be disappointed. woot

There is a preventable glitch towards the end that will cause you to have to start over Sparkle. Unfortunately I was unaware and can no longer finish the game unless I start over which is not happening.

Here is how to avoid the glitch:
Click to reveal..
Do not unscrew the vent with the screwdriver until you got in to the sheriff's office or you will lose the screwdriver.

Thanks Ana for the tip!

I didn't know about this glitch, Ana; fortunately it didn't happen to me, but I have taken note of it for when I play the game again. thanks

I unfortunately did not either and I am hoping they make a patch that will give the item back to me because I really want to finish it.

I was really enjoying the game by the way and thought it it to be a great addition to the MCF series.

Hi, Ana!

Thanks for the heads up! I'm not quite halfway through the game, so I'll be sure to follow your advice when I arrive at that task because, as much as I'm enjoying the game, I don't really want to start over in order to see the ending.

I just heard from the CS and the update on the 28th was suppposed to have fixed that. Unfortunately, it does not give it back to you, it just prevents it from disappearing. I guess this may be one MCF I never finish, I am totally bummed.

I just found another glitch (I think). Early in the game I went to the quarry and picked up the wrench. I didn't use it right away and it disappeared from my inventory. Now I'm finished with the regular part of the game and am starting the CE portion which I think takes part in the quarry but with no wrench, I can't proceed. Is there something I'm missing here? I don't know if the quarry is actually the CE portion or not. If it was part of the regular game, where is the CE portion?

I did love the game but, as you can see, I'm a bit confused at the moment.

Barb, the quarry level with the safe and the morphing objects is the bonus gameplay. wave12

Thanks, Marian. Guess I won't be able to play the bonus because I picked up the wrench early in the game and it vanished from my inventory. Now, I can't get into the shed in the quarry. Bummer!! Up until now, I really, really loved the game.

Barb, if the morphing objects have already opened up for you, then I believe it's not necessary to go back to the quarry when the main game has ended; I think it was only important during the main game - being able to get into the quarry and having access to morphing objects constitutes the gameplay bonus for the Collector's Edition, as far as I know. Sorry if I confused you. wave12
