Unfortunately, I don't have time to review this, the second game given away today. However, the following information should be of help. The downloaded zip file contains the games already expanded game folder. There is no installation file. You have to manually place the unzipped folder to wherever you usually have your games installed to, then create a shortcut from the application file named setup. Then rename the shortcut to Matchmaker Curse of the deserted bride.
I will try to post some information later

Hi,
It took a few minutes to download and opened easily! After I played a bit, I received a message that it may not have downloaded properly, so I am not sure about it. I did not get the second page after opening nor the little game of the day window.. Game play was fairly easy. One activity following another. It has a larger variety of easy games then some hogs. The graphics are good. I do believe it was given away before my crash and as harder to play back then, and easier play now. Thanks for another great game and am off to check the other giveaway! Lee

Would not install on either my computer or my wife's. Both have Windows 10. Runs from setup on wife's computer, but can not create a shortcut. A real pain.

Woody, Easy to make one. Right click on the setup.exe file that was made after you unzipped it. Choose pin to start, or pin to taskbar or send to desktop. :-)

Although I didn't see this mentioned by WR, this is very familiar, so I think either this was a previous giveaway and I played it then, or the first in the series was very similar. I'll have to see as I get further. That said, my big gripe is that when I went to exit after playing a while, it said all my progress "on this level" would be lost. But since I had seen NO indication that I ever moved to another "level", I thought all my progress in the game so far would be lost. I couldn't keep going since I sort of sometimes have a life, so I took a chance and quit. Out of curiosity, I then opened it again, and it started pretty close to where I'd left off. So I guess "levels" are whenever the scene changes? They should have made that clearer, as I see others mentioning this and it leads to confusion.

That said, so far it's a fun game and a very nice mix so far of puzzles and HOG, so thumbs up for that. As for the fact that this doesn't seem to install like the usual, that didn't bother me (since I was forewarned here) and I liked that I didn't have to the "turn off your AV and activate" dance. I should mention that when I exited the game the first time, I got a warning that this game didn't seem to install correctly and should I run in compatibility or did it actually install ok? and I clicked it installed ok and it was fine when I reopened it. Just in case someone else gets that.

Is this version any different than the one I got in April 2016 from this site in a zip file that is nearly 320,000 bytes? IOW, have there been any updates or changes to this game software since then? I'm trying save download bandwidth with my ISP.

Same version, slightly different method of installation, so some files from the giveaway side are missing.

James, errr don't you mean 320,000,000 bytes? Mbytes is millions not thousands 320,000 bytes will download in a second or so including connection setup time!

Not sure what any of you are talking about. Downloaded and installed fine on Windows 10 build 1709. Installed using the setup.exe file to unzip into another directory. Runs by clicking setup.exe in the new directory without manually moving any files. I shut off my WiFi and it works just fine offline.

Marcy, Thanks - good to know it works for some. Doesn't install on Win7 Pro, tho. {Sigh}

Reply   |   Comment by Elkyn  –  12 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Marcy, it works the same for me on Windows 8.1. I just extracted the contents of the zip file and find that setup.exe runs the game without any problems. I guess that just doesn't match others' expectations for an elaborate installation routine.

We've been spoiled with the automatic installs. :-)

Compared to the excellent Spin Top games of this ilk, this is utter rubbish. Uninstalled

Here the same, download went OK, the setup file just starts the program so there is no installation on the hard-disk. The game remembers your name, but I'm not so interested in a game that you can't play offline.

The Game run instead of installing by clicking on setup file

also create folder "Matchmaker2" in C:\ProgramData\SugarGames with two files inside :

- options.dat
- users.dat

Have the same problem. No activation possible with no installation. Pretty sure won't work offline. Any suggestions, whiterabbit?

The link is broken (the second time in a couple of months). If you go directly to the website, the game is $9.95. Hope they get the link fixed before too long!

Hi, Today's Game 'Matchmaker 2: Curse of the deserted bride' (sequel to 'Matchmaker - Joining Hearts') is where character Helen Jones puts her mind and hands to unveil mysteries deep in a heart of town she settles in and to work out how to lift the curse of deserted bride, of course:)

All in all - uncomplicated, charming Game with decent graphics that will delight any regular Hogger! And in my case - give me contemporary looking objects in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, garages and I'm happy, lol. Recommended, thanks.

beware you have to finish the level completly before exiting the game or you have to start all over this is a major flaw in the design as alot of us do have lives and we do have to go a do other things so we start and stop play well you know what i mean i did not get past the first level as i had to go so m aybe this will be a keeper when i am totally bored

Is this the same game that was on offer Apr 4, 2016?
