Does anyone have an HOS they simply won't do?

[Post New]by unofrio on Aug 8, 17 9:02 AM
I do. For a weird reason. I suffer from mouse phobia. I just can't do the Mosaic Birth of Atlantis. That rat running around and peeking in and out of the model palace is just too much for me. The still mice and the one you can make disappear, I can handle, even the one in the crypt wiggling his whisker; this one, I can't. I hope they don't make this a thing they do but it creeps me out so bad that I will spend the diamonds for the needed thing instead.

Fortunately, they also gave us the puzzles and my diamonds are building rapidly.

How about you? Do you have any HOS (or anything else) you just cannot or will not do in the castle?

Mirror Nave - yes, I know the girl is a marionette...but still...the angle of her legs/feet just...hurts!!! If she were mine I would straighten out her pose.

Won't play Rock Tree.

As for any other things I won't do:

Won't craft for coins
Won't craft for shards
Won't play the tournaments when they return (unless the developers introduce achievements connected to the tournament and I'm hoping they won't.)

The Crocodile Bush I tend to avoid because of the creepy jumping spider that's always hiding in the corners, but what's wrong with the Rock Tree? It's difficult, yes, but not repulsive - at least not to me.

Hello Desertdruid,

I don't find the Rock Tree repulsive, it just annoys me for some reason

Also for the longest time I would avoid the Flying Boat, there was something about how the pigeons were breathing that seemed unnatural and I found myself while doing the scene breathing like them crazy!

May I suggest that if you really don't like doing a particular HOS then you can zap it. Use 4 wands and you don't even have to look at it!

Mermaid's Junk. Too cluttered and just a wee bit much regarding her outfit, or lack thereof. I'm not repressed, but please stop heaving yer decolletage in my face, ya siren.

Now the Poseidon Fountain...That is one of my favorite scenes!

I pretty much avoid Cloud City in its entirety. The scenes are to busy and it seems to take forever to get through them all.

I used to avoid the sepulcher because it's so dark I couldn't see the items at the top of the screen. Then my monitor died. I got a new one and discovered the problem was my monitor, not the scene. So, I do them all, but my least favorites are the Mermaid's Junk, Crocodile Bush, Rock Tree, and the one in Atlantis with all the candles.

Have fun stormin' the castle!

I will do it, but I really don't like the Interrogation Room. Really gross, even the hidden objects themselves with raw meat, sandwiches, half eaten apples, a tooth and a syringe. Wouldn't want to be an accused criminal there, but very appropriate for the Cloud City Prison

These are good ones! I'll do them but they are good ones to avoid.

The marrionnette's weird angles bother me too and the Interrogation Room with the dead meat and rotting sandwich and all is gross but I'm trying to diet and it is definitely an appetite killer. I worry for those doves every time I do that flying boat. Seems cruel. Those little birds hauling that huge weight of the loaded boat. I'm glad to remove items/weight.

@mamarose, now I'm wondering about my monitor because that one is so hard for me to see in too!

@TiramaSue, me too on the crafting for coins and shards. I know I should but.... I'll be honest, just plain too lazy. I've got the ginger kitty so I don't have to torture myself on the tournaments either. I do like to play them just for the new HOS scenes but don't have to be competitive any more. Don't give them ideas on adding any more achievements around that! That kitty was hard to get, took diamonds and I'm feeling for anyone who wants it and can't even try for it due to tournaments being gone. Especially if, like me, they have a weird obsession - er, personal achievement - of having to have every pet.

@playingthegame, that is an excellent suggestion and reason to hoard them. Will keep that in mind for new HOS I don't like but since I've opened and maxed them all (yes, even the one I won't touch, I can't believe I even did) I'd rather spend a few diamonds to get. I should start collecting those in case there's another one like that in a future update. Good idea.

I hate creepy crawlies and don't like any of the spiders, mice/rats and mice but can handle them all except that one darting in and out! Shudder.

Have fun storming the castle!

When I started (many moons ago) I really hated that so many HOS had spiders. DO NOT LIKE SPIDERS. But I kept playing and now they don't bother me. I guess my brain has put them in a different category from "real spiders." I don't like the Crocodile. He seems to have an evil leer. Creeps me out.

I hate to admit it but I have a real phobia about snakes. I don't know why cos I have never encountered one except in a zoo and I know there are lots of people who say they are very interesting creatures. However, the one in the Belfry has always freaked me out and I have to get rid of it as fast as I can. It just seems to be about to strike and gives me a real shiver. It also slithers away to hide in the Statue in the Thicket. UGH!!! Sorry to all those snake lovers out there.

Kindest regards

@breadbakingmum, you are not alone. I have a strong fear of snakes. I like them alright and I even respect the creature but seeing one causes me to freeze up. I sit/stand slack jawed until it goes away.

When I first started in the castle all the scenes that had snakes in it caused me to freeze up. I had to force myself to do the scenes. Now the snakes are second nature and the only one that still bothers me is the one in the area where the dragon resides. I can't click it away but I have to sit there and stare at it. It taunts me that my phobia isn't gone just lurking in the back of my mind waiting to pounce every time I have to open that scene. Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes?!?!

My unfavorites are the rock tree, mirror nave and the sepulcher - because I find them the most difficult. The mice, spiders and snakes don't bother me. I like those little surprises.
