But thanks again 😑

EDIT

Thinking again I’m sure it’s not the Gold Bug game.

Well, I've now fully completed "Fear for sale : The 13 Keys CE" and much as I enjoyed the game, the glitch was NOT in it.
[Although the graphics and locations etc in this game ARE certainly the right type.]

But I have two others in the series so I'll try one of those next !!

I'm definitely on a crusade now !! lol

I'm still not sure I understand the "crusade" but that's good that you haven't run into the glitches again. Maybe the games have been fixed and updated. At any rate, have fun!

Oldbroad, my crusade is just to find the correct game and get past the glitch I previously encountered in it - by playing that section in the order preferred by the developers.
And so far I haven’t found the correct game.
BUT I’m now playing another in the Fear for Sale series and am hopeful this WILL be the one as the graphics, characters and locations in it are looking VERY good 🤞
So I’ll keep you posted in case you might need to change your notes ….

This is getting to be a very long winded search !! slapforehead

I've now fully finished "Fear for Sale The House on Black River" as well but despite the graphics and characters looking very promising, the glitch was not in this game either whistle

I only have one other in the series and it isn't a CE but I will still give it a go anyway as I'm enjoying the series lol

I'll be back with any further info. lol

Thank you, Marian grin

I've started the game now and immediately found that being an older one the hidden objects in it are harder to find !! hamster

But I will persevere yes

I finished Time Mysteries 2: The Ancient Spectres today. Please understand, it is not a bad game, but for me, it did start to wear on my nerves after awhile. Probably more my fault than the game's fault though. I played in "expert mode" which was probably a mistake. There are a lot of HO scenes and some of them are hard. I used the hint button 4 or 5 times I guess. The problem was finding the HO scenes. They may have sparkled if I wasn't in expert mode but I had to hunt them down by clicking around. Had I noted where they were, it would have been easier as they do repeat in the same areas. I used the guide twice but I had to find two different guides online. My game (from Steam) says it is a "collector's edition" / "premium edition". It didn't have the guide. The Big Fish guide I found didn't include the bonus chapter but the Gamezebo guide does. There is a time travel map that you use to go to different years and places. When I get stuck I start at the beginning of a place and work my way through. I rarely use maps but you do have to use it to get to the other years. You can also use it within each year to go from room to room. One year had a location that could only be accessed by using the map which I should have noticed but I didn't pay attention to it. That was the first time I used the guide. I also used it in the bonus chapter because I missed seeing two items even though I had looked in the two locations numerous times. The end of the main game hits you with "to be continued" which I despise. The bonus chapter sort of continued it I think, but not completely, but then again, it confused me so I don't really know. Therefore, the ending of the game was not really to my liking.

Next up I think will be Mystery Trackers 2: Raincliff.

I will admit that I have never played a CE HOPA in hard mode.

The "to be continued" would only really bother me if a third part was never released; at least we have a third part in this series. Maybe in this instance the "to be continued" would be a problem, though, if you had the standard version without the bonus chapter. You did say that the bonus game helped a little. I know I have been confused before in these games when trying to work out the storyline.

Raincliff is a good game. It's been years since I played it, but I remember liking it.

As far as I can figure, hard mode just means less sparkles. There usually still are sparkles anyway at a HO scene though, at least in the newer games. And the hints load more slowly and maybe the map doesn't show where there is something to do. Those things don't bother me. I do not play in the hardest mode though, just middle usually.

Well my crusade is over - but I haven't won !! sad

The hidden objects in my final "Fear for Sale" game trial were just SO well hidden it was taking way too long for me to find them .... and there was no enjoyment in that for me .... only possible eye strain eek
Plus, after playing quite a chunk of the game, I don't even think the grapics and/or characters were right for my search anyway slapforehead

So I capitulated and uninstalled it.

Now I'm having a look at my collection of "Redemption Cemetery" offerings and hoping I will enjoy THOSE !!
[ I certainly won't remember anything about my original plays of any of them, they are much too far back in the past wink ]

Yeah, I like Hidden Object games/scenes but I do like to be able to find the items in a reasonable amount of time.

Good luck and have fun with Redemption Cemetery! I have still not started that series.

I have played some of the Redemption Cemetery games but not all of them. I did enjoy the ones that I have played.
