I really liked this one! It's a nice story, the poor, the princess and the dragon! I played in Expert mode.
- The graphics are clear. The objects in the HOS are easy to find. In this mode, the HOS are also shown with sparkles, but otherwise you will have to look around to find the objects you need.
- The puzzles are fun and quite easy. Most of them are not the ones you usually get.
- There is no map, but not too many locations so you won't get lost.
- There is no journal but you don't really need one.
- There are not too many dialogs and they are quite funny!
It took me about 2 1/2 hours at a slow pace to finish, but even if it seems short, I spent a good time playing this game!

A bit short, but a great game nonetheless.
Fun and challenging.

I enjoyed playing this game the graphics were great the storyline was OK Loved the HO scenes, hint system was easy, it was to short of a game. By the time I decided I'm getting hooked to it it was all finished.

Fun, funny, beautiful, delightful!
I am so glad I found this game. I love the artwork -- lovely to look at even in the HO scenes -- and I am glad that the game doesn't make you feel rushed to get through so you can take your time and enjoy all the fun things there are to see. These are unquestionably the best HO scenes I recall seeing in any game -- clear and well-drawn but not super easy. I love the music and sound effects and humor and animations, e.g. leaves blowing around and dogs acting like dogs. Great atmosphere. The mini games are just right for me. I like it that they are mostly in context with the game, and require a bit of thinking.
One minor problem... the game does not fill the screen unless I change my resolution to 1152x864. No big deal; I have to do this for a few other games (old and new) and I only mention it in case others might have the same problem. This game definitely needs to be enjoyed in full screen.
A real classic!

Exceptional! Funny, delightful, nearly perfect!
I am writing this review without having finished the game...I am trying to make it last longer!!
This game has some of the best graphics and a delightful sense of humor, (some of it "sight" gags, and some more obvious). Even the HO scenes are bright but may be way too easy for the experts. The adventure itself is typical fairy tale, but the execution is very entertaining.
Although the game could be made more lengthy by making the quest items harder to find, or more difficult HOs, I am really enjoying the light-heartedness and ease of play. A game to relax with!!!
No "dark" scenes...Ugly monster types are really kinda cute...even the graveyard was pleasant.
I am stalling because I don't want to finish the game...I need 5 more delightful chapters!!
I see the devs. have previously had 2 Robinson Crusoe games at Fish....I will surely try them....hoping they will have the same wonderful humor and bright scenes.
Do yourself a favor...don't miss this one!

great for me!
I played this one when it first out and yes, I have fun (I never leave a review before).
If you are a HOG lover well try this. That's way, I give it five stars because this game is good for my lazy time.
Btw, thanks dev and good job!

Fun and challenging HO / adventure game
I thoroughly enjoyed The Fool. The story is whimsical, the graphics are excellent, and adventure game elements (find objects in the environment and figure out what to do with them) are very well done. I appreciated that there was actually a little bit of challenge to the game. So many HOGs are way too simple these days. Highly recommend!

ANOTHER EXCELLENT ONE : TY BF
I am still playing, but thought I would comment since I am back here. The mini games are well thought, and sorry to say, I use skip sometimes. Good, smart people made this game.
It is refreshing, and great story. I even had to listen for it isn't just gobbley-gup.
The reason I am back here is I have to keep cheating to see where I am going. And I am not a beginner.

Very Cool Game!
I try to be careful what I spend money on, but this game got me hooked. I was settled in, ready to relax and enjoy the game, but then it was over! Game sites really need to post an approximate time of game play. "The Fool" is a great game and very funny. I was eager for the fun to continue after the trial period was over. Unfortunately, the rest of the game wasn't much longer than the one free hour. If you're not into long games, this one is for you!
