Good game. Would have liked a map. Hints refill quickly and if you don't know which way to go, click on hints and it tells you and you don't lose the hint. One thing I found is it that some of the words are strange. Dividers is a drawing compass and yarn, is a spool of thread, not a ball of yarn. Other wise good game. Didn't have sound on.

Three modes to play on, experiences based on normal play. Game was mediocre, not bad but didn't really snare my attention. Clocked in at a little under two and a half hours, which for me is extremely short play time. Story line was the standard, detective investigating paranormal activities. The voice acting was decent, but inflection really needs some work - had me laughing when it should have been a serious moment. H/O scenes were clear, but very cluttered - which means you might find yourself using hints a lot -and accounted for maybe an hour and a half of total game play. You will have to revisit scenes at least 3 times, but on the upside, items that are found remain gone from scene, which I really liked. Sound over H/O scenes was annoying, forced to turn it off early on in the game. Once again, there is no map, so a lot of back and forth is needed. Puzzles were disappointingly easy. Overall, okay for novice players, but experienced ones may be left unsatisfied. See more See less
I enjoyed this game immensely, from start to finish. As a Lovecraft fan, I smiled at all the little bits of mythos contained in the game. The graphics were lovely and dark. The sound was perfectly atmospheric. While this wasn't a hard game by any means (I played on normal), it still held my interest completely. It was truly a joy, and well worthy of being an All Acess game. Great job with this one, iWin! See more See less
Altho this is not my favorite genre I played for a good while until I got bored with it. There is a lot of back tracking to previous locations in this with hidden object scenes working from a list here and there. Lots of puzzle solving. THe mini games I felt were much too tough but you could skip after a decent period of time. For those users who love this genre they would probably finish it, but for me as I said I got bored with it all. See more See less
Just another excellent hidden object game ! ! ! The story was interesting, graphics were beautiful, the game was not too scary and the hints loaded very quickly. I will certainly be purchasing this game to add to my collection. Great job, IWin . . . you did it again ! ! ! See more See less
