This is a really fun game! I took a chance purchasing it seeing as not many people seem to have taken much notice of it - but I kid you not, this is the only game I've played on this site that has lasted longer than a few hours. It has been about 6 days and I am still going!
It's great, you can customize your avatar and there are lots of missions to keep you going for days. The graphics could be much better, but in the end if it's a fun game it doesn't matter too much about the graphics.

Wandering Willows needs a sequel!
I have played this game several times from start to finish and it is different every time just because you can do things a little different and you get used to making recipes and also making clothes. The quests are the same, but it is different enough with what you do to make it fun every time it is played. Make a SEQUEL PLEASE! ;-)

It doesn't need challenge- it's just pure fun!
This is such a fun game and very different from any other Big Fish game I've played. It's a nice break from games that make you work hard! It isn't a challenging game since you don't need to use strategy or solve puzzles, but it certainly isn't boring either!
You wander around on an island performing tasks for people and gathering resources with the help of cute pets. If you enjoy resource gathering, this game has a ton of resources to collect! You collect them by having your pet dig, climb trees, and charm other animals. These resources are used to complete tasks, feed your pet, and make things.
The best thing about this game is that it isn't timed and you can do whatever you want. You can focus on advancing the story by completing the tasks or you can explore and gather resources to make the things you want to make. For example, you can experiment with cooking and find recipes that give your pet the most energy or you can focus on trying to get an egg from every type of animal to hatch new pets.
There are different sections to the island that give you different resources and animals, so the game is nice and long. It isn't something you can finish in one sitting. I find it addicting because I love to collect the resources. It's hard to walk by a mysterious mound of dirt without stopping to dig and find out what's under there!
I definitely recommend downloading the trial. You will get so hooked after one hour that you won't want to stop playing!

A favorite game of ours!
This game is great fun and also a bit of a challenge to keep up with the requests from so many adorable characters, keeping track of inventory, not to mention feeding your pets! There is so much to do, you will be busy for hours & hours (possibly for days)! You will be exploring, baking, gardening, sewing and many other things.
Fun! Fun! Fun! (can't say that enough). Try it!

Great game for adults and kids!
I loved this game from the moment I started playing it. It combines humor with fun quests, and it would appeal to anyone who enjoys building skills, inventory, and knowledge (you collect recipes for many items!). My 9-year-old is also hooked, and we enjoy playing it together. I highly recommend trying the game out for the hour because it won't be a waste of time. I bought it immediately!

Brilliant - hours of fun!
I could tell you how much I love this game with a sonnett but that might be a little over the top.
Point is, is that this game is brilliant. So, so brilliant.
It will firstly take you hours to finish the instructed game play, and you will definitely have fun doing it. Then afterwards, you will be so hooked on getting yourself some medals that you WILL continue playing it and end up with a word document or paper list of things you need to complete the game 'entirely' (aka : get all the awards)
This game will give you hours and hours of fun and yet it is so, so simple.
It is literally you on a wee island helping people out. It's vaguely, very vaguely, like a pokemon type game where you have your own animals and battle some 'bad creatures' and do little quests, but really it is just awesome.

Real Nice Game
It was nice to play something a bit different.This is a game full of adventure where there are many requests you must fulfill for many people and while you are doing that you are collecting objects for potions and feeding animals and planting flowers,etc...there is much to do that will keep you busy for quite some time.I had many hours of relaxing fun with this one..

WoW, just WoW!
When I buy games from Big Fish Games, I expect a game-play around 4 hours (especially for hidden object games). However, with this game, after playing like crazy for 4 hours, I could barely complete 80 tasks yet. Still more to complete.
The game is typical adventure game and add that a little role playing over your pets. There is little currency logic, however a huge variety of items and lots of quests. Though all quests are in form: 'go talk with someone and then collect items to do what s/he wants', it does not bore you since items change from time to time.
Definitely worth the money, I highly suggest it. One of the best games I have seen in BFG for a long time.

Get ready for your next favourite game
This is definitely one of my favourite games. The word cute comes to mind... The different quests are fun to do. At a certain point in the game, you can teleport, which makes it a lot easier to move around the island, so that it doesnt get boring. Even after you completed the story there are challenges to be completed. This game is a must-have!
