...When I downloaded the game, of course it was during "peak" time LOL. so that's why it took so long. I have played the demo and enjoyed it. I turned the music low but left other sounds up and enjoyed both. Great graphics. I am enjoying the storyline. I really liked the transition to the next mini-game or the next room.
...I do wear granny glasses "cheaters" on the tip of my nose when I play. So, while some items were small, the graphics were good enough that I was able to find everything. I liked a few of the creative ways things were hidden.
...I do plan to purchase this game. WTG

While you are holding the Bent hose, hover your mouse in the upper-middle-left hand of the screen. There are two spots that give you stars, one is for the hose, and the other is for a clamp to hold the hose in place.

We sort of use the mechanic from Azada where you move your mouse over the screen slowly to find a spot to interact with. The engine is the most complex puzzle with this mechanic in the game. Normally I wouldn't spoil the game like this, but not knowing how an engine should look puts a person at a disadvantage as the possible combinations for item/active spots is something like 25 (lol, I'm tired).

I'm certainly not complaining *smiles* I think its wonderful that you guys are around.

I used a certain amount of logic, and a little bit of trial and error to solve the engine (actually, the bits that were left in plain sight - in the engine, but not in the right place - caused me the most problems )

Welp, finished the HH2 shortly after purchasing and finished it in about 70 minutes. Not disappointed in the game so much as the fact that it was waaay too short. To be fair, I went back and replayed HH1 for comparison before commenting and that was really a good value. Last a couple of hours, good variety of mini games and a lots of different locations. Not often sorry I sprung for a game but definately am with this one. Sorry, not complaining, just commenting. Happy gaming fellow fins. I'm a devoted BFG member!

I wrote a long entry at what I thought was here, only to find out in the end that I was posting on the original HH. So if one of the makers has any interest in another critique. please go to HH! LOL Maybe that is why I had trouble with finding objects in this game!! In summary, I thought the graphics were bad and the objects difficult to see in some scenes. I kept fiddling with the contrast. The puzzles were too easy also. I won't buy it!

Maybe everyone will consider me the forum equivalent of the Grinch, but could we all get away from copying someone else's comment before adding our own? That is one of the forum guidelines and it seems that it is being ignored. We end up rereading a post and then the new comment. Sometimes we see the same posting copied two or three times. We are just taking up space. Can't we just refer to the posting by the poster's name? Maybe it is just me, but I would really appreciate it if all would begin this practice. Please don't feel picked on. Names were not used to protect the innocent! Thank you

Whilst for long posts, I agree up to a point, for short posts - such as answering a specific problem - it actually makes things a lot more legible (and helps the requestee find any specific response to their query).

Its not exactly difficult to skim past the boxed and italicised quote to the response. For extremely long posts though, sometimes the scroll overkill does cause a bit more hassle.

Well, I started to play through a second time, figuring I'd count the different HO scenes.

Each scene has quite a few item in it that weren't on my list the first time I went through, however it appears that I'm getting the exact same list, in the exact order even. Sheeeesh...... putting this one aside for a week or two.

If somebody can say "no, that's just the first scene - the others have random items" I'd be happier about this game being so short.

Keycard/pad reveals a puzzle of course. Just to check.... you did notice that the keypad has a '0' on it as well as numbers 1-9?

I will go to bed so I don't go goofy and go to that other site to get the Jaguar's Eye. I won't buy from them. Nope, If I keep repeating this I won't forget. I have never purchased from that site and I am not sure that I want to. Taping fin-gers together so as to not go look and drive myself bonkers.



I have to tell you that I just finished playing haunted hotel II and it was one of the shortest games by bf that I've ever played, what a rip, I'm so disappointed, **** games seem to be getting shorter and shorter. it seems we just cant win. We pay more money for shorter length games. Does that make sence? no more short games for me, i'll have to stick with the large file games, they last longer and i'm getting what I pay for. thanks for listening Paula

OK heres my 2 cents worth
Yes the game is a little short,but how much do you pay to go to the movies?(2 hours long) popcorn and all?
where i live that would be a minimum of $20 for one person,do i go back to see the same movie twice? (replayability) not usually.
now i go to best buy or target and buy the game off the shelf $20
so for 6.99 its a good deal
i liked the game and found the graphics well done.I thought the music was fine,storyline good. maybe for shorter games,what if they only gave us 30 mins?
all in all i enjoyed it
