I have played this game all the way through twice over the past few years. I finally purchased it since occasionally I'm in the mood for this game and want to be able to access it forever! It has a lot of variety and I like the quest type of game. Great re-playability with different pets and so on.

Liked the game, but after it didn't save I gave up. I it would have been nice to keep playing it, but thank goodness I have a monthly membership.

Now that you can save the game it is wonderful. Hours and hours of play, lots of fun

While I have enjoyed playing this game the few times I have done so, I have had to start over 3 times because, although i opt to save and quit, when I start back my saved game is gone. Like most people I work for a living so cannot play start to finish and really hate games that go that quickly anyway but this is truly frustrating to make good progress only to lose everything!

Very relaxing, but incredibly entertaining. This game is kind of like a role playing game and time management rolled into one, but without any real complexity or time constraint. Your character goes around completing quests and collecting resources around the land and there's always something to do. Very addictive and tons of quests to complete, so it will keep you busy for a long time - well worth the buy.

Quest-Oriented/ resource gathering game is many hours of fun-filled adventure,and several cut-scene surprises,as well. Besides The Sims(the original first SIMS with all the expansion packs) this type of game is my favorite. Your avatar chooses a pet to hatch from an egg to climb trees and dig for the resources. There are several different eggs that you can choose to hatch and each pet type has different ability levels,but you may also just keep the same one and it's abilities will develop over time and with use. They can charm other creatures to get them to drop the resources they are carrying.Charm is one of their abilities they have. Replay value is extremely high,and you will want to play this over and over,just for a relaxing adventuresome game. Even though there is much clicking,it is all very slow paced.

Does anyone know if the Save bug is fixed? Or if Gamehouse is going to offer a fixed download of this game? I like it enough to want to play it properly.

In this game, you wander around with a pet and characters give you tasks to find things and/or make things and/or give things to other characters. Your pet gains more levels as it repeats tasks and it needs certain levels in order to gain access to higher levels to complete tasks. If you've ever played World of Warcraft and done non-fighting quests, it's a lot like that. It's repetitive and not at all challenging, but fun if you like cute cartoony pets and corny jokes and getting to know a bunch of people. You are asked to make alcohol, so some people may not think appropriate for kids. If you don't have a subscription, I recommend you check it out. It's the sort of thing where one person loves and another person hates.

I'm glad I bought this game. While I don't play it all the time, I like to come back to it every once in a while to visit the silly and funny characters. It's neither clicky nor thinky - there's no real thought required but there's no time limit either. It's not random, though. The game leads you to new areas as you and your animal helper-buddy compete tasks and gain skill. There are some nice details like having to feed your helper-buddy or he'll either stop helping you or he'll eat whatever you've asked him to get for you. With no time constraints, it's not a TM game and it's hardly what I'd call action-packed but it does entertain.

This game is super boring, there is no challenge whatsoever. It is the easiest game I've ever played. Alright for kids, maybe, but still really easy. Easy and a bit too much stuff going on, so kinda confusing. Im giving it two stars because the characters are cute.

Loved playing the game...did it for HOURS....and then "saved" and quit....only to come back today to NOTHING SAVED!!!! It will save as long as you don't quit the game completely....found that out today playing it...if you quit completely nothing is there when you sign back in to it. I really LOVE this game...hope you can fix it right away!

Sometimes I look for something that's a bit different than my usual game. This one has it all. A quest with a bit of time management with cute pets helping you along the way. The animation is a little cartoony to me, but that did not detract from the fun of gaining friendship points and completing the things you need to do to reach your goal. It was fun changing clothes for my avatar. A great overall game!

Really love the game, but it doesn't save...the four hours I played yesterday are gone...not good!!!

Really love the game. Will take a long time to finish, can be played at your own pace, and you have to think about what you're doing. However, the game does not save, so you have to start over every time you restart the game.

This really is a fantastic game! Very easy to play and you set the pace. It is buggy at the moment, the not being able to save is a bummer but it doesn't affect my love for this game! Gamehouse will no doubt update the game or find the issue that caused the bug and correct it, so no worries on that score for me. I can wait patiently for the resolution. This game is kid friendly, fun and has some great scripting, very much worth the time to play it to the end!

I love this game - but am having the same issue as others when I save and quit the game. PLEASE tell us how to fix it - I will be rather upset if I wasted a ticket.

Wandering Willows kept me busy for a whole weekend and then some. This game took hours and hours to unravel. Wandering Willows plays very well on the Mac with good response times and excellent cursor control. I recommend this game to anyone who likes this type of game play. It could be played again and again but for me, once I figure it all out I would prefer to move on to the next game challenge.
