I was just playing the demo. smile

Kudos to the developers for coming up with something a bit different. It's refreshing to have a game set in Elizabethan England, and Sir Francis Drake makes for an interesting helper.

Hi, Maian!

Yesterday's sale coupon is still valid, so I picked this one up for $6.99. I didn't play the demo first because I didn't want to take a chance that the coupon would expire in the meantime but, based on the reviews, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it.

Looks like a great game, with good reviews, but mine won't playsad Seems like others having the same problem, over on the Bigfish forums. Hopefully a fix will be coming soon.

I hope so too, thracia. There are quite a few people who seemingly can't get the game to run at all. I hope the developers can come up with a fix as soon as possible. wave

Hi, everyone!

I just finished the main game, but I want to give everyone a HEADS UP on a glitch in one of the HO scenes. Towards the end of the game, you will encounter a HO scene where you have to dress 3 dolls. If you do things in the wrong order, one of the dresses will disappear and you'll be unable to finish the game. Before touching a thing, head over to the BF forum and look for the thread entitled "SPOILER ALERT: Solution to the Doll Puzzle and Disappearing Dress". If you follow the poster's instructions, you won't have any problems. Had I not been enjoying the game so much, I would not have bothered replaying.

I hope this helps.

Thanks very much for that, Susan. I did see on the forums where someone had posted a workaround. Hopefully there will be an official fix very soon.

I'm glad you enjoyed the game despite this problem. wave

Hi, Marian!

I guess I should be grateful that I could get the game to run at all because so many others can't. I really am tired of buying games that contain glitches, because this is the 4th or 5th game that I've played where I reached an impasse because I did things in the wrong order. I ended up replaying all but one because I was really enjoying them, but the other one, I ran into a problem and replayed the main game, and then I ran into another problem in the bonus chapter. I'd had enough so I contacted BF Customer Service and received a coupon for a replacement CE.

I do not understand why the developers would allow players to take and use certain inventory items if that results in reaching a dead end. I wouldn't even call that a glitch. I would call that a programming error, and it should never happen.

Played demo without any problems and enjoyed. bought. have reached a 'glitch' (one of MANY listed in the forum)in game. Went to forum. gobs of people having problems. and BF seems oblivious. And the developer should be ashamed that they released this game with so many, many problems. Apparently they don't even play their own games...or care enough to get busy and fix this game. Seems like they just don't care....and neither does BG. I like to get the CE's when I can. not for the wallpaper or extra puzzles, etc. I like the extra gameplay. But unless there's a fix (and that does NOT mean releasing it as a 'new game' SE) for this CE in the next week this is going to be the last I buy. Somebody is asleep at the wheel. Too many CE's are having problems...seems to be a quality control issue and devs aren't standing behind their work and fixing them. Used to be that certain developers could be trusted to put out a good game without problems or if there was a glitch there was a fix released soon. Not so anymore-very sad. This developer has now - in my opinion - become just another 'just put it out there no matter how it plays' and that is a shame.

I'm not going to try to defend releasing a buggy game (although it can happen even with the most conscientious developers), but I do believe that you need to give them 7-14 days to release an update, particularly when there are multiple issues. The developers not only have to identify the problems and fix them in such a way that they will work on several different operating systems, but they also have to be careful such that fixing one thing will not break something else in the programming code. If they were to rush an update, only to release a game with more or different problems, that would be making a bad situation worse.

Vendel Games has released updates in the past and I would be surprised if they don't release one for this game as well. As far as Big Fish Games is concerned, they can only report the problems to the developers - after that, it's up to the developers to come up with a fix.

If I see an update for the game, I will certainly post about it here.

Thanks Marian! I think what disturbs me most is that there are many complaints about the game and it just seems to me they (dev) HAD to know there were existing problems and went ahead and released it anyway. Also irks me because BF doesn't even acknowledge the game does have problems and that they've been in contact with the developer or not. Sorry to be so grouchy--just been a bad few months for me.
Just had to vent. Sorry guys.

It's okay to vent; we all need to do that sometimes. No worries. smile

An update for the Mac was just released for this game; hopefully the PC update will be available soon.

Thanks Marian!! It says 'pc/mac' so maybe it is one for the pc too!
I started over and managed to put the piece (from the Bird Gate) and this time put it right on the Family Crest gizmo...then went and dealt with the Scarecrow, then went back and dealt with the potted flower and when got another piece put that right in the Crest. All has been good so far...except still cannot move from one 'page' of map to another. irritating. but tomorrow will be going at this again. I like the game(when don't run into issues. hah. Thanks again. Happy 4th!
