Pros: My mouse works with this game, SG can be accessed in the trial version, hint button works on scenes other than H0 scenes.

Cons: No voice-over (after the first cut scene). Awkward movement, graphics drab and dark. I definitely will not be spending CE monies on this one. Perhaps a SE but the game just isn't my style, and I don't have that usual urge to "buy me now".

I will be anxious to see what other's think of this CE. Whether it is worth it or not and if you like this type of game play.

We need a smiley sitting on a fence. That's the one I would use!

Realistic scenery and graphics. It's an IHOG with not much in the hand holding department. I thought parts of the HOG scenes were a little gauzy looking...but could just be me. Suspenseful music which goes well with theme of game...think maybe another ghost story...but not sure about that yet. Only voice over I have heard is at beginning of game and it was well done. Hint replenishes quickly and the strategy guide is functional in the demo. That's it for my comments...I'm sure others will have plenty to say...lol

I always look to see if the mouse has worked for you and I am so glad that it does with this one.
I am with you, sitting on the fence. We can chat while we wait.
I have put a post in the C & R. I found this game too easy on Advanced mode and a little boring. The majority of posters seem to love it, which is great!

I wonder if I am becoming awkward I loved The Revenge on Wednesday, whereas a lot of others did not! Have fun all

Agree with others that its SE value only. Very boring compared to others I have played. Mouse slows down dramatically in game

On the island you are suppose to find a wrench on the deck of the boat. It isn't there. I wondered if maybe I downloaded an old version, so I went and uninstalled it and then reinstalled it...no luck. I am not sure if I am looking in the right spot now, maybe the walkthrough was incorrect.

I just downloaded the game on 4/13

I love the atmosphere! Creepy but nothing shock me though.
I just wondering if there is somebody who notice that the boy (on the last scene) looks alike Rock Lee? Character from Naruto
LOL
just saying btw, no offense

Hey there sweety1219,

Welcome to the Pond!

To help with those symbols on the bones I've gone ahead and have included a link for the free walkthrough below. (Just click on the blue text!)

Shiver Vanishing Hitchhiker Walkthrough

To search through the free Walkthrough for specifics you can use the search feature to find a specific key word. For example, press and hold the Ctrl and F buttons together and type in BONES, then hit Enter. It takes you straight to the relevant part so you don't have to sift through the whole thing!

I hope this helps!

I missed the hidden object scene of the desk in the study after opening the safe. Now I can't get the glue. Is there any way to trigger the HOS now? I need that glue!
