Foolishly Fun If you're on the fence about this one, definitely check out the demo because it's really hard to put this one into words. Yeah, it's really that different. And for those wondering, the "adult theme" is really just potty humor and some partial nudity, very cheeky. ;o) While you're visiting a town to investigate a UFO rumor, your visit really has nothing to do with it and instead, you wander around town, encountering some pretty "interesting" characters and helping them with their problems by finding items anywhere and everywhere. This is NOT an HO game at all. There are a couple of puzzles, but it's really just a humorous adventure game. Pros: There is a LOT to do in this game so find a way to keep track right off the bat. Extremely long gameplay. I spent hours and hours and hours playing this one (5+). There's never a dull moment with all there is to do and see and people to meet. By the end of the game, I had completed 119 tasks, though I've read that some forum members had 121. Not sure why there's a variance, but there is more than one way to play this one. Cons: The walk through is less than helpful, in fact, it's missing a LOT of what to do. I suggest visiting the forums if you get stuck. I had about 6 items in my inventory and not one of them was mentioned in the walk through. I won't spoil the end, but yeah, the end was pretty abrupt and disappointing. It's over so fast that you're left wondering if you missed something. Not sure if that means sequel, but it was all pretty confusing. Some of the sounds in the game are obnoxious, but nothing that turning down the volume won't fix. After playing it once, I know what I'll do differently next time and that's to keep very very good records of where people are and what they need. It adds up fast and if you don't keep track somehow, you will very easily become lost. I would have given this game 5 stars if it weren't for the ending and for not having better tracking within the game. Was still a very fun game and I recommend checking it out. June 25, 2012
Need a laugh? You're a reporter trying to track down the Mayor of Tundel. Sounds easy but it takes a lot of hard work to finally get to him! You discover the Mayor is on an island and you need to get a ticket for the airport. There are a lot of people in this town and everybody wants or needs something from you. You have to do an awful lot of traveling around town trying to find all the items these people want. Some of the items can be purchased in various shops around town but a lot of items you either find laying around somewhere or earn by helping out a town resident. Careful what you pick up off the street may pick up a pile of poo! Then you have to race around trying to find somewhere to wash up while the flies are buzzing around you. If you take too long looking for somewhere to wash up, the police will come along and take money off of you for stinking so bad! The only thing that started to annoy me a bit after a while was the police officer who constantly pops up and talks to you. It was funny at first but got a bit annoying for me after a while because, until he leaves, you can't do anything but stand there and listen to him. Luckily though, he's not there long....just a bit too often for my This is definitely not a HOG game for young children but if you are looking for some fun and humor in your day, then I suggest you give this game a try. :) June 30, 2012
great adventure with a lot of humor Unusual story and cute art. It's not just a HOG, but a kind of adventure which is definitely out of box. I am having a lot of fun playing this game and will buy it for sure. June 21, 2012
There is one disappointment This game is fun and entertaining. The only thing I do not like is that only one person can play this game and it is impossible to introduce a second player or save your game so someone else can play. Everytime I tried to let someone else enjoy the game I had to start all over again and that was annoying. Too bad the game could be fun for other members of the family as well. I recommend the game if you are going to be the only player or you will never get to the end. July 4, 2012
My kind of hidden object game! I like a game you actually have to think some to do it.. So far I have played more than 15 hours and haven't beaten it yet. June 26, 2012
4.5 stars Very Unique. Hours of laughter. City of Fools is a unique game. Structured very differently from any other adventure.hidden object game. There are a few typo's here and there but hardly worth noting. The game is VERY quirky with a, shall we say, "unique" sense of humour. The goal of the game is to get an interview with the mayor and ask some pointed questions about a suggestion of a UFO landing there. The downfall of the game is, once you acquire a ticket to get to see the mayor, you can head off and the game will end *sort of*. In fact it is difficult to tell that you have actually finished the game. The ending of the game is weak and does leave one wondering if they are indeed finished. There are 122 tasks you need to complete before you head off to find the mayor whom is hiding on a lone island in the middle of the river. To complete these tasks you must jump back and forth between various residents, street corners and stores. The in game map will assist you with how to get to where you wish to go provided you remember where it is you need to be. The map does not provide you with details of homes etc, simply with numbers in which you need to keep straight which number is actually the number of the home you need to go to. On the plus side, if you really do not wish to go door to door trying to figure out what you have forgotten, there is an in game help built into the task manager book. In all I had loads of fun, some frustrations, and once you get past the hilarious if not some what "stinky" humour, you can plan to spend many many hours of fun in this game. One word of warning, the BF walk through is far from complete. Use this only as a guide and check in the forum for answers to what you are stumped on. In all it gets a two thumbs up from me. Well worth the buy. February 3, 2013
Fun task oriented game! My 7 year old son and I played this game. I like it because it's task oriented! It definately tests your memory. Mine is not as good as my 7 year olds! It would have taken me a lot longer if he had not helped me. I don't think the themes are too adult for someone his age. He's almost 8. There is a little "bathroom humor" but it didn't bother him. There are a few scantily clad people but it's not obscene. I recommend keeping your own notebook to remember where you have been and where you should return to. Figure out how to use the map & you won't be wandering around aimlessly like we did at first :) This one has been out awhile but definately worth playing. There is a walk-thru and some good help posts in the forumn. Happy Gaming :) Thanks Mom for getting us this one!! November 11, 2012
Quite different: goofy, challenging and hilarious This was quite different from other games and really kept me entertained although, as others have mentioned, the extent of scatological humor is childish. Other reviewers have given good tips: Go through the tutorial to learn how to use the map Write down who needs what, at which house number The in-game help is minimal, but many players have posted help in the forum. I found it quite challenging (there are many tasks that require multiple steps to complete, and a lot of "outside the box" thinking), and enjoyed that it offered many hours of play. The characters' appearances and "voices" made me laugh. For me, worth it for its uniqueness, challenge and length of play. November 10, 2012
Unique, fun game. A little bit of "hidden object" meets "strategy. August 12, 2012
