I've played it a little bit. Some would say they totally ripped off MM. I say, good for them. It's more like other Big Fish hidden object games, but a lot is similar.
What's the same:
- quests to find objects
- tools (compass, flashlight, magnet, bombs!)
- word, silhouette, and night mode
- diamonds for leveling up
The graphics are nowhere as good as MM. There are icons for friends and gifts but they don't work yet. My initial impression is that it is not as good as MM was when I first started playing it, but I'm so tired of being punished with quests for thousands of oil cans that it's better than what MM is now.
I'm not going to stop playing MM, but I'm going to seriously cut down on play time and mostly concentrate on helping friends. Best case scenario for me is the friends and gifting become operational and all my favorite peeps move over there.
I'm a huge Big Fish Games fan. I'm hoping they take the best of MM (okay probably not multi-gifting) and leave out the garbage. I have always had good customer service from Big Fish Games and never once felt like they were exploitive in any way. And they actually seem to understand that games are supposed to be, um, fun!
Anyone else tried it? Interested to hear other reactions.
