I had issues the first time this was given away via MyPlayCity, but did finally get it to work; today I can't get the TooMky Games to work at all. There are several community members reporting the same , so there has to be something wrong with this game. I'm running Win 10 Pro 64 bit
Today's giveaway was originally given away on the 28th October 2018 HERE, where it received a positive 70% from 37 votes, with 31 comments. I'll post some images and videos later this morning. You can see my original comment via the link above. I wasn't able to play the game due to some issues.
The following is what I originally posted. I will update if I'm able to later.
I found the game virtually unplayable when it was given away October 2018, 'partly' due to the lack of an options menu, so have not posted a review; just a few videos and links to Big fish community reviews.
Search for the Wonderland
In Brief
A Hidden Object adventure.
maxresdefault
Installation:
Search for the Wonderland downloads to a 73.2 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set-up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives can save games on any drive they wish. The newly installed game is 95.1 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Search For The Wonderland
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop, three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the additional tasks window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)

Conclusion:
I didn’t like the fact that there was no ability to play the game in a window, however the 66 separate hidden object scenes were accessible right from the outset, which for me was a refreshing change from the usual formula of unlocking different scenes by completing the previous scene first. Otherwise an average Hidden Object game.

This comment is late, so likely won't be read by anyone, but....

The game Dled and installed and ran perfectly for me on W7. Yes, there is only on/off for volume, but it was easy for me to adjust my speaker volume directly.

But I don't really think this is a game. It's like a group got together to design a game, and there were those who were to write the story that drove the game, and a team to come up with the clever puzzles the players would have to solve, like, oh, using several items to melt some metal and cast a key you need. And another group who would create the little interstitial games, the 'assemble this jigsaw' or 'play this concentration game' or 'arrange pipes so water will flow. Finally there were the artists, who created the fabulous background scenes for the HOG scenes, and probably the hundreds of items that would be hidden in them.

Then everybody except the artists got mad and walked away from the project.

And to salvage something, they built a directory so you could jump to each scene and hunt for the objects.

And that's all you can do. There's no story to draw you along, there's no mental challenges, no little puzzles to break things up. You just hunt for a list of items, over and over and over.

Mind you, the scenes I've sampled are all beautifully drawn, atmospheric, intriguing... but even if you are content to do nothing but hunting for hidden items over and over, there's no payoff for it. I must have played nine or ten scenes, jumping about randomly in the list. Each time after finding the last item it informed me that my score was 1500 points, and one of the five empty circles in the end box was lit up. Every single time the same score, the same one out of five 'rating'?

It did not matter how fast I found the items, or how slow. (In one case I was called away for lunch, leaving the scene hanging open partially solved for over an hour. Still got the exact same score.

Also, although the intro says there is a penalty for using hints, that seems untrue. I still got the same score when I solved a screen with no hints, or deliberately used a dozen. It doesn't matter a bit.

You can replay individual scenes, and the assigned list will be somewhat different from the first time, though objects will remain in the same place in the picture. And, again, you will receive the exact same score.

Basically, this isn't a game. There's no winning, no trying for a perfect score, no need to find the solution to the story. It''s just find some objects, over and over and over. Which, I guess, is okay if you are mad keen on the hunting object aspects of games. Otherwise, this is a total disappointment.

I have installed this game twice, with the same result. Once installed, I click on the shortcut and it only takes me to this url: https://toomkygames.com/download-free-games/play?g=search-for-the-wonderland. After the first install, I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. Located install folder and clicked the .exe file. Again, it opens the same link. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Never mind - found it.

In the Windows Security home screen, I went to 'App and browser control' and turned 'Check apps and files' off. Ran setup, then went back to 'Check apps and files' and set it back to 'Warn.'

For the last several games, I needed to allow Setup.exe through the Windows Defender Firewall when installing. For this game, doing so still does not allow it to connect. I get the message, 'Failed to connect. Please try again later.'

I tried completely shutting off the firewall and anti-virus completely and I still get the same message.

Anyone have any thoughts on a work-around?

Thanks.
