I was hoping to post a review of todays game, but I've not had access to the computer (apart from now over the lunch period) because my son has had a friend staying over and they are playing co-op games together. My main computer suffered a burn-out last weekend and I've still not received my new motherboard, so it's out of action. One other of my computers is also out of action when a hard drive died on me a few moths ago, and I've not yet bothered to reinstall the operating system onto one of the other hard drives. All of the resources I use to post a review are locked up on the out of action computer. I could strip out the hard drive that has the documents I use and install it to this computer once my sons friend has gone home, but that wont happen till this evening by which time most regular giveaway visitors will have been and gone, so the effort of writing a review will be lost on most. It can take me anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of work to complete a review, even if I include someone elses review as a backup as I also need to play the game for a few hours at the very least before I can be make any faithful comments about a game. All of my other computers are being used by family members but I will try to grab some time to post some links to videos and post some images when I can, but because I haven't had time to play the game yet as I only gained access to the admin panel late last evening it's doubtful I will be posting a ful review today.


As I've said before I hate not posting, but the situation at the moment has left me no alternative. please accept my apology. Thankfully a couple of community member shave posted their views on the game, which should give you a decent idea as to what to expect. thank you to Diane, Snow and Granny for the useful feedback about the game.

Clutter


In Brief

An unusual hidden object game, the first in a series of at least five games, most available via big Fish.

Suggestions:
If you like or don't like today's game please give some feedback detailing why you like or don't like the game; for example, how it could be improved from your point of view. If you don't like this genre at all, please explain why, especially if you give it a thumbs down. There are still thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers ideas as to what their consumers (i.e. you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as mini games, or a level editor that you would like to see or improved the graphics, change the menu system, add camera controls or some other aspect of the game that would make it more appealing to you.

If you miss today's game giveaway you can still get the game via MyPlayCity 24/7 HERE. You can also get free copies of Clutter II, Clutter III and Clutter IV HERE. Big Fish games has the first five in the series, and can be purchased for as little as $2.99 (number five i.e. ‘Clutter V: Welcome to Clutterville’
is on sale at the moment, not checked the rest) If today's game giveaway doesn't interest you at all, there are usually other free alternatives available, for example at this time you can get still get Nox from Origin and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell from uPlay totally free. If you don't fancy either of those check out the game discussion forums where you'll find details of literally thousands of free games (both freeware and abandonware), and links to various 'dirt' cheap indie bundles that cost as little as a dollar to five dollars for upwards of 6 to 10 games (or more), usually worth upwards of $100 or more, for example Indie Gala, Groupee's, Humble Bundle, Flying Bundle, Daily Indie Games (DIG), Indie Game Stand (IGS), Bundle Stars and more. At this time there are at least 60 or more indie bundles available, most of which cost less than $5.

Installation:
The game downloads as a 104MB zip file that unpacks to a setup, setup.gcd (security wrapper) and read-me and installs to the following path by default unless you chose to install to a different path from the main installation. Those with multiple hard drives are able to save games on any drive they wish:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\The Lake House - Children of Silence

Three shortcuts are installed to the desktop. Two of which i.e. The link to MyPlayCity Games and the Play Online Games link can be safely deleted. The game uses 111MB of hard drive space not counting save data.

options
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving Clutter minus the check-boxes; let’s hope we see some of the later versions of Clutter (i.e. Clutter II to IV) and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for providing a safe environment to download free games.


Useful Information:
The problems section that used to be posted here in the Game review is now included in the Game Discussion FAQ's thread; which you can find HERE.

I've updated the games section that used to be posted with the review. The thread is now called 'Weekly round up of game deals', formerly the games section of the weekly reviews. You can find the new thread (which I've posted in the sticky section of the game discussion forums to make it easier to find if you are perusing the game discussion forums) HERE.

The latest free game over on Origin is still Nox. Nox is an action role-playing game developed by Westwood Studios and published by Electronic Arts in 2000 for Microsoft Windows. It details the story of Jack, a young man from Earth who is pulled into a high fantasy parallel universe and has to defeat the evil sorceress Hecubah and her army of Necromancers to return home. Depending on the player's choice of character class at the beginning of the game (warrior, conjurer, or wizard), the game follows three largely different linear story lines, each leading to its unique ending. If you've ever played the early RPG's such as Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale or the early Fallout series and liked them, you'll probably like this game as well. It's 16 year sold now, but still looks pretty good for it's age. This type of game has held it's appeal and looks far more than the early first person games. I highly recommend it..

You can get it HERE. Please note that you do require the Origin game platform to be able to download and install the game.

If you are having problems installing the game check the thread I've linked to above. If you can't find any fixes check the comments made by the community below and over the last few weeks for suggestions. Thank you.


If today's game wasn't to your liking, you may find other games either free or for less than the price of a cup of coffee (from your favorite coffee house) via the 'Weekly Roundup of Game Deals' thread which I've posted a link to above, or HERE.


At this time there is an excellent free game available via Ashraf's site 'Shareware on Sale'. Called Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell which is available HERE.

I've still not sorted out keys for a couple of community members. If you think you have a key coming for commenting on a game last month, please remind me over in the game discussion forums, and mention the comment you made. thank you. I want to make sure I've given out all of the keys I promised. thank you.

I'd like to give a massive thank you to Whizzy or Mavadelo (his Steam name), who has created a review site for me. I am talking to him via Team Speak over the coming weeks while he tutors me in the ins and outs of the site. The site won't go live right away as I want to post lots of game reviews. It will be a combination of arcade and AAA game reviews, some old and some new, divided into appropriate genres. We intend to avoid any advertising, so the site should be safe to peruse without worrying about clicking on links that may send you to rogue sites or ad's. I will also try to post reviews of new releases. At least those that I purchase and we intend to include a free games section as well as regular game giveaways, though not like here as the games will be coming from my own personal stock of spare game codes. Most will be Steam codes, but I also have hundreds of other codes for Itch.io, Origin, uPlay and others. Although the site is nowhere near ready, you can check it out HERE, please feel free to leave comments in the forum section HERE. If you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see, please post them in the forum. As yet there is no forum topics, but there will be soon. You do need to register to post in the forums. I will announce when the site is fully functional as soon as we can get it ready. I'm away on vacation in two weeks time, so it won't be until after them, but most probably not until late summer or early autumn/fall.

This game downloaded quickly and installed easily.
But I didn't like it. Funnily, because it was too cluttered! Often, a different piece would select than I had clicked on. And there didn't seem to be any point to the game, either

At first sight, this looks dated: "junkpile"-style hidden objects games are no longer particularly appealing.

However, this is misleading. This game is smart, addictive and -- importantly -- has elements that change the nature of the game as you progress.

From finding pairs to both halves of the same object; to triplets; to objects (that might not be visible right now) matching those on a conveyor belt at the bottom of the screen, to objects where one is monochrome where the other is colour, interspersed with minigames that also make you exercise your visual memory and problem-solving skills. This, like many "proper" puzzle games, is SO much better than the initial visuals would make you think. Oh yes, and the central conceit -- that decluttering your life is a good thing and "Leon Poncelette" is here to help you achieve it -- is sort of appealing too. :)

The only downside is the MyPlayCity wrapper. While, in its defanged form, courtesy of GGOTD, it just puts game adverts in front of you while loading and opens your browser at exit, it's not as irritating as it might be, it's still enough of an irritant that I'm seriously considering finding the dev's own site and offering money. Yes, I'm THAT impressed. (But then, I gather he was influenced by Everett Kaser which is a BIG tick in the approvals column for me.)

I'm writing this a day too late to influence anyone's downloads but you wanted feedback so here you go :)

Jeez, this is ridiculous. Moderator comments & review cluttering the comments section. It's becoming nigh on impossible to find useful user comments as they are hidden amongst all this silliness. Imo the other users' comments are the most useful comments as you have feedback from people with different tastes using different systems. Have a look at the giveawayoftheday comments section. Moderators only post when it's absolutely necessary.

.........................Moderator Comment.............................


Kevin, there are rarely any comments left on the other site. Many questions go unanswered. Thankfully there are some excellent community members who do answer some of them. As for my moderation, I've done this for over 8 years and only a few community members have ever complained. The majority welcome my usual reviews and comments. You are entitled to your opinion, but I won't be changing the way i moderate just to please you.

Installed easily on Windows 10 64 bit.

I rather like these HOG type games, and I do enjoy/prefer a bit of a story with them, so I approached this one with a bit of trepidation. I needn't have done - it is a fun and entertaining variant that plays well. The graphics are nice and clear and fit the concept. There is a challenge to it, especially early on in each screen, which is very good. The 'educational' personal aspect is novel, I don't normally like that as they are not always well done, but this one isn't bad, even then I don't take it too seriously but it does rather add a nice touch.

Nice game which I can see myself playing for a while. Thank you GGAOTD and MPC.

It installed without issue and played great on Windows 7. I really enjoyed the game (played through past first mini-game). I thought it was nice that the "host" made it seem more personal and gave me inspiration to tackle my own clutter. Nice twist on a hidden object game. Good job, developer!

I downloaded it, unzipped it, tried to install, but I get a message "Failed to connect. Try again later." Saying that now, while I'm connected! Going to be too late to get it later. Thanks anyway! I appreciate the free games, there have been several I've really enjoyed.

Hi Lisa, your security software may be blocking the installation due to the Themida wrapper which is sometimes seen as a threat becasue Themida code can also be used to hide malware. You may have to turn off your security to get the game installed. Read my comment to Amelia below.

leni,
No need to be sarcastic. If you don't like the game, uninstall it and check back another day for another free game.
It was released in 2011 as far as I know. I could be wrong, but another Clutter game came out not long ago.
A lot of people like these true hidden object games, without a long drawn out story. Good to play on and off without losing track of where you were in a story.

The game loaded quickly (less than 2 minutes) on Win10. I had no problems installing the game. The game is a different take on both usual HOGs and MATCH games. I am enjoying the game having played through quite a few levels. I am a packrat by nature so the hints don't annoy me too much. The minigames are a nice twist. I agree with the earlier comment about not being able to type my answer to the tile game. I think the game is good for most age levels and it plays at a nice pace for those whose fingers/ minds prefer a slower pace.
Thank you WhiteRabbit for all you do. Sorry you are having computer issues. Thanks again for this game I will play Clutter 1 through and probably pick up the freebies from the series you mentioned earlier. I like a variety of games and am happy this site doesn't just stick to one genre.

Thank you for your feedback Linda.

If you do download the others from MyPlayCity, do please make sure you uncheck the boxes that are presented during installation of the game, otherwise you may find toolbars installed to your browser, or even your home page changed. MPC games are safe to download, but will always open your browser when you close the game down. This is totally innocuous. The reason for your browser opening to the MPC home page is so that MPC can earn cash, some of which is paid to the developer.

I do not care for this game. I love HOGs, and the concept of matching items from a jumbled mess is great. But I don't like the "preachiness" of the commentary. Also, with the game creator's photo appearing with every pop-up box, it makes the game look like a low-budget educational tool instead of a streamlined HOG.

Thank you for this. Another one of my games I lost. Great game works in Win10 Home 64bit. Only problem is that it takes bit long for the introduction to go through and all you want to do is just get in and play. Other than that, great game. Hoping to see Clutter 2 and 3 later on. *wink wink*

A fairly simply game; not really a HOG but more of a matching game. It seems as if this game was created to 'teach' users about all the terrible things that come from clutter. I don't really like "teaching" games (OK, I hate the idea). You get a lesson at the beginning and between lessons. You need to click through a few times to get back to the game. Not too onerous but not engaging.

The matching isn't too bad, it's just a pile of junk right in the center. You can't move it to look for items hidden under others - you just have to keep matching to remove the top ones to see what is on the bottom. The graphics look dated in this version. Some items (coins and letter tiles) you just need to find one to clear/collect. I've played up until the mini-game where you have to fit the coin sets onto a chess board. I get the impression that there may be a word or sentence being constructed from the letter tiles that will be revealed later.

Overall, if you like matching games this one is pleasantly different from the match-3 board genre. The mini-games scattered between the match sets break up the monotony. It feels like a game that was made to accompany a self-help book, but if you can overlook that, it's a pleasant time waster.

Today's game 'Clutter'. Had trouble downloading and installing this, which I don't normally have on here, but when I finally did get installed, we played it for awhile, and much like others quickly got bored with the lectures and attempts to show you the story. Plus the gameplay was slow and my daughter didn't get into it at all. Made sure to not take into account the downloading/install problems on my reflection of the game, but unlike the last HOG game given away here we just couldn't get into this one at all. Removed it from our system.

Very clever game. I made the mistake of not reading all of the introduction so I didn't realize there were coins and Scrabble tiles to be collected. OTOH I didn't have the problem that others mentioned of having the first stone stay on the screen.

Thank you for this game. It reminds me to an old game with the same gameplay and tangarine figures. Also very addictive although the rounds have a similair goal.
I like the simple concept, the search for the scrabble letters and coins and the mini games. What I do not like, is the searching for fragments of the photos. That was a bit dull and does not fit in with the hog part of the game.

But thumbs up for this small game. It is fun.

I don't play a lot of HOGs (hidden object games for newbs) but this one does bring something different to the table. It's also nice & cheerful, a welcome change from all those dark & dreary HOGs that want to be spooky. I'm looking forward to potentially seeing later versions that let you turn off the timer, but so far so good. Thank you, MyPlayCity and GGOTD!

Whiterabbit, hope you feel up to updating your machines soon, but I've been in the same boat (needing to do some hardware/software changes) and feeling kind of overwhelmed. Tomorrow's a new day! Here's hoping you find a way to streamline your review process so it doesn't take 4 hours or more out of your day. Thanks as always for your participation here! :)

Hi Dan, Thank you for your comment. I tend to be a slave to my methods.

Hi Daniel, open up the event viewer and chgeck the logs for details of the error. That should givbe you a better indication as to what it wrong. post it here if you can;tfigure out the logs. Best thing to do is try running the game again, then check the logs.

I just love Clutter! It has very cheerful graphics with great Hints (yes, I needed the hints). There is plenty of time to do the game, but it does move quickly. I would still like to see a relaxed mode, so I could take my good ole sweet time.

I found the Mini Games to be quite interesting and easy to do. I enjoyed collecting the Coins for hints and the Letter Blocks for the destination clue. I wish I could type my guess for the destination into the game. It would also be nice to have the letters represented my lines. At least this would give me a running start. The Coins and Letters give this game a little different twist.

I just love the game and give Clutter a thumbs up. Thanks MyPlayCity and GGOTD for the gift today. I'm like a kid at Christmas :-). Stephen, I feel for you concerning your computer woes. I wish you the best on it. Sorry you're having to go through this.

Downloaded fairly quickly and installed fine and I've had a chance to play long enough to review. I really kinda like this one; different from the usual HOGs (which I also like) in that each very short game is a bit different in type, so it stays interesting, at least so far. Unlike some who have posted, I don't mind the declutter hints, and honestly, they are so short that they don't really affect the playability for me. Yes, they are pretty basic, but good reminders and again, can pretty easily be ignored, as can the story. If I were recommending this one to someone playing for the first time, I'd say take a second or so to read the tips with each game; upon replaying just ignore them.

I really appreciate that this one is different from the HOGs we usually get, though I really enjoy those, too. Now that I am using this site MUCH less due to the unpopular changes, I'm always delighted to check in and find one that both sounds interesting and doesn't make me jump through hoops. Enjoyed the adventure/HOGs like Exorcist and Lake House lately, especially, and now this one. Thanks!

This is an old game, but one that will keep you occupied for hours. Not great on graphics, mostly pics of everyday objects, (and you can almost pinpoint the year it was made by the age of some of the items pictured), but lots to do, and gets progressively harder as you make your way through the puzzles. Some can be quite tense as you're against the clock, but for the most part a good, simple game that wastes time, gets your mind off stuff, and requires a good amount of concentration.

Ok Windows 10 x64 Pro to D: drive internal. This is a really fun game so far. Just did a first run through but enjoyed the combo of bit tough/easy method of stacking all the clutter. Don't be discouraged by the large counter numbers since it seemed that after getting some special clicked item game auto won that level. Guy gives a few tips that help and there's a Hint amount that can be added back into by clicking a few single (unmatched) coins. So funny when stuck for a match and use Hint and the darn two are right in middle of screen. So used to looking for the tiny details and overlook the big things. Ain't like wonderful. I think I hit two large paperclip like lock things that merged and won level.

.....................................Moderator Comment..............................




Thank you for your feedback beergas, much appreciated.


Usually just need to find one the two for match, other times have to click both items. Maybe has to do with whether one is partially covered. Nice graphics. Haven't run into any time issue or that treadmill belt system.
All in all a nice twist on HOG. 9/10 for fans. Thanks GOTD & WR.

I liked this game--and the de-cluttering hints aren't bad, I just wish my husband would play the game and read the hints! Definitely a new kind of HOG and worth downloading. If I had seen this game on MPC I doubt I would have tried it. So thank you GGOTD for introducing me to another enjoyable game!

The game would be much better if it dumped all the story and lectures. Boring. I can always read a book to learn all of that stuff if I really want to know it.

.....................................Moderator Comment..............................




A better idea would be the ability to turn off the story and other extra's so that those that didn't like them could play the game free of them, but those that did like them could play the game as the developer intended. That way, both parties enjoy the game the way they prefer. :)

Carolyn Kooken,

I believe all the other games in the series have the option to turn off the story. At the time this was written, Joe was of the opinion he HAD to have a story somewhere or people wouldn't play it. I think he's changed his mind.

I remember seeing this game and not wanting to try it. I prefer a storyline. If I am going to play a mindless game, match 3 or some form of solitaire does it for me. I don't find hidden object that much "fun" by itself.

It is a bit a different game, in the end you have to gather rocks. I finished off the first part, Rio de Janeiro. The stone that was earned there stayed on my screen.
Closing down the game and starting it again solved that problem.

A bit annoying are the 'wise' lessons in between, so before you can start playing there are some quotes to click away, also in between the 'levels'.
The mini games are different and quite OK.

At the moment I don't know whether I like the game or not. ;)

I am enjoying the game. I have have found two glitches, one in each of the rounds I have played. The first round the amythest gem would not go away into the second round. I needed to shut down and restart. Second round played through until the prize award at the end of that round, when the game crashed and automatically shut down. I am about to start round three to see if this continues to happen at the end of each round.

First of all, the tech stuff. This downloaded in 2 minutes for me. Installed without any problems on my laptop running Windows 10.
I haven't really made up my mind yet on this HOG. It is unlike any other one I've played so I have to give it kudos for originality.
Because of the fact that you have to sort through clutter, there are times when an object you are supposed to find and/or match is hidden by other objects so that there's no way it can be found due to the way the game is set up. I found that frustrating. I've only played one mini-game so far.
I have to wonder if I will either get bored with this - or maybe too frustrated. It may be good as a filler. There is no story-line to speak of. I feel as if I'm attending a feel-good-make-your-life-better conference when I'm playing this; that may be a detriment over a period of time. I like warm fuzzies but....
I gave it a thumb's up because of its uniqueness; however, for me, the jury is still out......
Thanks for the free game!

p.s. if you want to separate paragraphs you have to use the following code with < and > and the following words within the arrow like brackets. ..... Blockquote at the beginning and /blockquote at the end of the paragraph

A tip for the My Play City pop-ups: Just remove all internet hyper-links from the game folder.

Clutter is a wonderful spin on HOGs. It's really an un-HOG in that you have a pile of random stuff "dumped" in front of you and you have to match up in various ways to complete the level. Sometimes you match 2 identical, sometimes they're split, sometimes there are 3 to match. I don't remember if this version has the "similar" matches. Sometimes it's just what is displayed, sometimes it's what comes down the conveyor and other times what is displayed in a shadowed form at the bottom of the playing area.

There are many mini-games scattered throughout the game to help you earn more hints. There are special items in each level that also help. Note -- the maximum number of hints is 99. It wont' go higher.

Admittedly, Leon (story line, totally fictional, character) is a royal annoyance but he's easy to ignore and just focus on the game itself.

This is the first of currently 5 games in this series. I believe the first 4 are available on the freebie circuit but I only have the first one that way. I no longer keep the freebie circuit spreadsheet updated once I realized it was no longer accurate as older games were being removed. It is just not worth the trouble to keep it updated. I have games 2 and 4 from a Game CD and 3 and 5 from BigFishGames. I'm waiting for 6. I'm hoping this offering indicates it's at hand!

This is the only one of the 5 that does not have a non-timed option. It only comes into play in the latter stages of the game. This game has incredible replayability. Every level is totally random within the rules of that level. What is "dumped" and what you have to match is different every time you play a level. Even if you immediately want to re-play a level or you stop and then start at a given level, it will be totally different.

Without the story line, it is a very simple and relaxing game. With the replayability, it's a definite keeper.

The 6th of the series is due out at any time. After this game, the rest of the series is: Clutter II: He Said, She Said; Clutter III: Who's the Void; Clutter IV: Mini-Game Madness; and Clutter V: Welcome to Clutterville.

All have the same mix of minimal/no story line and mini-games. All are great games.

I highly recommend this game to anyone. Even my husband who does not play many games, stands behind me and plays the peanut gallery while I play (I control the mouse, he finds a few matches :) ).

Hello WhiteRabbit and thanks for the terrific job you do. Also, thanks to My Play City for this unique and fast-paced game. There are at least 3 follow-up games and I could not resist buying them also.

I already own this game and I can tell you it never gets old to play. No two HOs are the same and quick mouse work and good eyes are a must. The timer is generous, but ticking nonetheless. No real story line to follow, but it is not necessary or missed. There are puzzles and other game play also.

It may not be for everyone, but give it a try for yourself if you want long lasting and very entertaining game play. Played a lot of games, but this series has not been duplicated.

I am disappointed in the way games are from this site and wish it would return to the way it used to be. I will no longer take the time to download any My Play City Games as I am so tired of waiting for the download, then for my Webroot antivirus not allow it to be installed. Yes, I probably could turn off whatever it is but after waiting for the download, I don't want to take the time to investigate what is stopping it in Webroot. I can only think it has something to do with the advertising for MPC wherein you are taken to the website upon closing the game and that is how MPC collects any money. Can't blame them, but I just don't want to put up with this process any more. Sorry but this is it for me. I will stick with the free non-lobby games from tams11. Thanks anyway.

The giveaway team responded to a similar post last week and I have tried to explain several times that it's become a lot more difficult to get free games. at least these limited licenses give some community members the oppertunity to still get a gaME. better than nothing at all. The following is what the giveaway team posted last week


Basically, it has become quite difficult to get the developerss feature their games for free for 24 hours, but some of them are ready to give away a limited number of licenses. That is why we have decided that it would be better, for the community in the first place, if we give away a limited number of copies instead of just turning down the offer. As you may remember, we used to publish games only on weekends, but as we are now slowly growing and getting more and more deals, we might be able to give away games more often. In fact, we've already had several campaigns on weekdays and, hopefully, there will be more in the future.


As for the Facebook thing and other actions. The main point here is that we have visitors from all over the world and different time zones. So it would be just unfair for a big part of our community if we just post the license keys at a given time.


On the other hand, I assure you that giving away unlimited number of copies for 24 hours is still our top priority, as you are getting more free copies, we are getting more visitors. So we are on the same side here :)

Mardel, I couldn't agree more. I too don't use social media. I've avoided the MPC games until last week and should have done so again. I am in awe of how many links and junk are in the game folder, the waiting for the game to load, added desktop links, open browser,... I feel the pain for the developers, but as an end user I couldn't be any more disappointed.
WR, I hope that the giveaway team are way beyond thankful for your "taking one for the team".
I've followed your comments for 10+ years and the fact that you've remained here is valiant. To wind this up and be pertinent: This is a Big Fish game today. Their games are always top notch.

Hi Sid, please read the comment I posted below that includes a copy of the post the giveaway team posted last week. Thank you.

mardel,

Purely FWIW... Just another point of view...

" I will no longer take the time to download any My Play City Games as I am so tired of waiting for the download, then for my Webroot antivirus not allow it to be installed. Yes, I probably could turn off whatever it is but after waiting for the download, I don't want to take the time to investigate what is stopping it in Webroot. "

I'm not trying to make light of your objections or feelings, but rather pointing out another way to look at or approach it in case it's of any use or interest.

Staring at the screen, waiting for a download can be boring... so I don't -- I don't sit there staring at the download progress bar. It's kind of like boiling water -- the water will get hot whether I stand there looking at the pot or busy myself doing something else. Downloading a game takes very little resources from your device, so you can continue using that device, or get up & fix a cup of tea or put away the dishes or whatever.

RE: Webroot, why? If anything there are too many security software brands, so there's plenty of choice. I watch the sales & I don't recall it as one of the usual brands that go on sale very cheap. There's little in the way of test site data, e.g. av-test.org, & going by a review at pcmag[.]com, while the author of the review liked it, I wouldn't trust the way Webroot works personally... according to the reviewer, Webroot monitors an unknown app, then rolls back anything it's done if/when it decides it's malware, but IMHO not everything malware may be capable of can be undone. Maybe it works OK, but there are free, free after rebate, & low cost [e.g. $4] security software that has published test results available.

mike, I wonder if this is my problem? When I try to install these downloads it asks if I give permission for it to alter my computer I click yes then it does whatever for a few seconds I get directed to the congratulations you downloaded this page, yet it is nowhere to be seen on my computer! The install file is still thre but not the acutal game. A search turns up nothing. do you think malware bytes is stopping it? it doesn't pop up with a message saying so..

.....................................Moderator Comment..............................




Hi Amelia, most giveaways are free standing, which means there is no or very few registry entries. Using the search function on your computer doesn't work for most giveaways. Firstly make sure you make a note of where the game is being installed to. Usually with these MPC games the install path will be C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Clutter, if you can't find the game there it's most likely that your security software is blocking the installation. This is because the giveaway executable that enables you to install the game is protected by a wrapper that contains Themida code that is often seen as a threat by anti-malware programs because Themida code can also be used to hide malware. If this is the case, you need to enable your anti malware program to allow the installation. If you aren't sure how to do this the easiest solution is to temporarily turn off your security until the game has been installed. There has never been a game giveaway that has contained malware, ever since the first game giveaway back in December 2006. We have received over 1100 games since then, all of which have been safe to install. It's extremely unlikely installing today's giveaway with your security turned off will cause problems. Lots of community members have had the same probelm and have turned off their security just to get the game installed, then turned it back on. Please do let us know if either of the above worked for you.

Thank you My Play City for at least giving us a game that we can download and enjoy instead of all the hoops and hurdles that the other bunch of "steam-heads" (clots) seem to impose to get something for free.
