    Big Fish Games "Found" - MM alternative?

    Post  BittyBrain on Mon Oct 22, 2012 7:49 pm

    Big Fish Games has come out with a "free-to-play" hidden object games, called Found (which is kind of a joke on the tv series Lost).

    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
    - collections
    - tools (compass, flashlight, magnet, bombs!)
    - roamers
    - 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.

    Thanks for pointing the game out Smile
    I like it, their games have always been enjoyable, except I usually just play thru the demos.
    This is a nice diversion from trying to get the keys to access the Selene, so thanks!

    Thanks for sharing. I'm downloading now & will be checking it out. Also fed up with increasing GI limitations that have taken all of the fun out of the game. Tired of them not listening to their existing customer base...I'm playing less & less and am hoping to find a similar game with a company that knows more about software development, has better customer support and actually listens to their paying customers.

    Fingers crossed that Found will be a suitable option! Thanks again for sharing with us Smile

    I've downloaded it and played for a few minutes. So far so good. It's a shock to the system not being able to find the items straight away LOL.

    I've found Found!!

    Like it a lot, maybe because I'm sick of GI and oilcans, and searching the same rooms for 10 months. I think once you can add friends which is at a higher level, then my whole group is going to move over, and it won't matter about unbanning Harper Seven. It has a lot of what we're used to as far as collections and charging but with new scenery etc I'm pretty happy. I also love BigFishGames. Long before iPad I've been a member for years on my PC and if you find something to complain about, it's fixed! You get the one person sticking with you day by day till you're happy again. If nothing else it will give you something to fill the void that MM leaves. Serves them right too that people are talking about Found on their FB page. Nothing like some healthy competition! cheers

    I like Found! Still not at the "Make Friends" point, but hope we can all friend up when we get there. I've had it with GI and their greed & bannings. Time to start fresh! Thanks for the tip.

    Actually I hadn't thought of that, but 10 months is a long time to play a game and I'd forgotten what it was like to be excited over new quests and finding collection pieces. With the knowledge I've gained from MM though I'm not playing like a newbie, I'm playing smart but goodness this is exciting!!
    Very Happy
