    I played the demo for this at one of the other sites, and put it in my "get it a pcc when Big Fish release."

    In other words, it was good enough for me to want to own it, but not necessarily in a hurry. Where I demo'd the game, it was a "Premium" edition, which why the lukewarm response. I think it is a very good as an SE with achievements.

    Decent if not spectacular graphics, and I seem to recall, a bit confusing to begin with. HOPs I remember as okay, the puzzles I simply don't remember (which I probably blocked them from my mind, to prevent massive overload)

    I am elsewhere engaged at the moment, so I cannot give you a better, in depth, review -and it was quite a while ago.

    (Dragon Cave of course) BUMP!

    I somehow missed this game,  so thanks to this post I started it and will be getting it
    with a pcc.

    JTF--what on earth is going on with the forum?   You and a whole  lot of others got the
    dreaded   Removed By Moderator  on your posts.   I know you didn't say anything
    raunchy,   so what got their knickers in a knot?

    OH! Oh yeah, that. 

    Some of what I said was censored because I made mention that I had played the demo at another site, even though I didn't give names, only that it was the Premium Edition.  Rolling Eyes

    What I was really being censored on though was my appeal for an end to the wars over what people were writing in their reviews. I got a lot of very supportive responses, from both sides of the argument, and for one whole day, nobody was nasty to others. heart flowers 

    So the Mod removed anything that suggested there were other people out there who felt the time had come for the hot heads to just shut up.  Meh

    The final problem with my review was that I said I was busy elsewhere and couldn't give a detailed review. That got censored because it was soliciting members to go join another forum.   Whistle

    The last one was justified, but only by accident. I had given that impression, I realized, when my inbox was flooded with requests to know where I was writing reviews now. Oops!

    Didn't tell anyone that I was busy playing a crazy dragon collecting free-to-play that was actually free.  Snicker

    Oh! The post is here, it's the one you responded to - minus the plea to end the war.

    I'd read your review and honestly, I didn't see anything wrong with it, Justie. Not to have the "Removed By Moderator" tag. (I went back over and had a look)

    That's why I don't post there. I reckon I don't know right from wrong in what I say and I don't feel the need to be "moderated". Laugh

    I thought it was funny that I was one of the few that didn't get a Removed by Moderator.  I'm one of the bad children.

    Looks a good game.  I'll have to pick this up sometime.

    It is worth the Platinum price though, or should I just go for the standard edition? 

    Decisions, decisions...  Hmm...

    I really enjoyed this game.   I got it with a pcc.   Not sure what the PE has,  but I am
    happy with the SE.
    It was mostly Adventure type game with some HO's thrown in.   There were some
    typos in the black bar that made me read it a couple of times,  wondering what it
    was saying.
    Other than that,  it was challenging at times.   I played on the Hard Mode,  and you
    really have to look around in the rooms to not miss anything.
    The map jumps you to a room and also lets you know when you are done.
    I had to skip one puzzle,  managed to do all the others.

    Once I started playing I found I did not want to stop.  


    JTF----is that all you were censored for?    Rolling Eyes    I think the moderators don't have much
    to do with the CCC gone.    They are not used to everyone getting along!   To boring.  Snicker    

    Beer    This Bud's for you.

    Oh, yes! Happy dragon taming Snapnhiss. That Whiptail (brown and silver) egg has a really nice lineage!  Two thumbs up
