City of Fools is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 234.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily the best game I've purchased from BF Finally something different. You have to play it to appreciate it. Ridiculous, engaging... definitely worth the price. You are a journalist, sent to a city to investigate a supposed UFO sighting. Explore the city, talk to people, and earn $$$. There are puzzles, but the attraction of the game is really not puzzles. This is not another blah HOG clone that has become oh-so-common for BF. You have to try this idiotic, wonderful adventure to appreciate it. This completely weird little game made me laugh, go "huh?" and play until dawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toilet humour that is surprisingly engaging I bought this game years ago for my PC and have recently bought it again for my Mac. It is a fun, slightly uncomfortable adventure game consisting solely of fetch missions in order to earn money. Don't expect this to be your usual Big Fish clean, saccharine, Victorian adventure, though. The developers have a weird penchant for toilets and all things associated with them, nuff said. The characters that populate the game are mostly ugly but there is no shame or malice. It will make you feel slightly uncomfortable. Every mission is unexpected. The events you have to rectify are similarly out of your usual noble quests; more like relieving someone's bodily needs. It's very visceral but sort of, urbane. It is, absolutely, a city of fools. Nevertheless it is colourful and pleasant in a dysfunctional but not dystopian way. It's a jolly and interesting city to be a part of. Because it is a decent size, I found myself getting used to the weirdness. Some niggles I have are that it is probably too much toilet references. The policeman who gets in your face is just too much. It is very difficult to orient yourself as there is no consistency to the way you move through the streets. but at least the map is very helpful. The hints for items that need to be exchanged do not tell you where you need to look to find the items to exchange. The records of the missions in the book do not tell you where the mission came from. I had to keep a diary of the items everyone needed and where they were. Together with the map, I had a great time. It's relaxing just scouting around looking for stuff, not being a hero, just an odd jobber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Travel, Mind Game This is one of the top games here for me, far as adventure, humor, graphics, long game play, and a maze running fun time. I can not wait until part two. However I am not quite finished with this one. I have been playing this game for a while, taking my time not wanting it to end. Amazing characters. My wife and I usually play mystery games. It's good to take a break from dark side games for a while. I recommend this game totally,& listen to some nice music while playing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fun! Different! Unique! After reading the reviews I'm glad I purchased this game! It's like nothing I've played on BF. It is so fun. I love the characters that you help by doing things from them. All the puzzles aren't that hard. The graphics are crisp though they are cartoony, which adds to the appeal of this zany game. I loved navigating the town of Tundle. The game is humorous too! I can say I got lost in this game. There are no bells and whistles but there a journal to help keep track of tasks. The only thing is remember where everyone is located at. Though there is a map that give you your bearing there isn't any indicators as to where people are to return tasks. So you have to remember where people are located. And the map is huge for a game. So many people to visit and lots of tasks to perform.

I just want to say that I think this game is timeless. It doesn't matter when this game was issued. If you love puzzles, appreciate a quirky sense of humor, and like a game that will provide a fun challenge, then click BUY NOW! You will HAVE to think. You will HAVE to laugh out loud. You will NOT want it to end! Don't miss this gem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most favorite BF game, ever! I've been a member of BFG since 2007. Overall, the games are great, but this one is terrific! It's fun, original, quirky, funny, silly, challenging and off-the-wall. So unlike anything else, it's a great way to get some laughs as you experience sometimes complicated exploits and collect needed objects that you must find and use to expose the mayor. PLEASE come out with some sequels!
