This is truly a weird game, but I played it all to the end. Thank God for the hint button and the quick return. Not my type of game but I bought it and had to finish it. I am anxiously awaiting some of my favorites to come up with something new. MCF for one.
I don't recommend it only giving it one star.

Three out of five. An OK game with interactive H0s and some interesting puzzles, but it's kind of clunky and old-fashioned. The H0s have modern items such as USB sticks, however the overall feel of the game makes me wonder whether the devs have simply taken an old frame and bolted new stuff onto it. I'm glad I used a coupon rather than money.

I got tired of that circle showing up really, really fast.

And where HAVE all the good games gone? I used to have a long "to buy" list. Today I spent seven credits I've been accumulating but have not been able to find games I really wanted to get. The "to buy" list is long gone, and games whose demos I didn't want to end (and when they did I was ready to buy the game) are gone. There doesn't seem to be anything new. I am about ready to deactivate my account.

Got through most of the Demo, but just couldn't finish. I agree with the bad or so-so reviews. I didn't care for the graphics, the characters moved like they were from games from the 80's!! And too much clicking here and there for what?! I just couldn't get into it. Sorry devs. Scooping my cats' litter box is more fun!!

Another game with a dark scary storyline. Good graphics, different way to HOS, good characters.

LOVE IT

First time ever a hidden object game I Haven't aced. A great fun challenge and I admit to using mega hints. But lots of fun, challenging and great graphics. Thanks for great games and a chance to try them again on there own. Well worth the $$$$$$

I would buy it if there were a walkthrough. without that, I could get stuck and just not be able to work it out. I like the game enough to get it but the walkthrough is needed.

I bought the game and it was a waste. I only got as far as trying to connect the signs on the wall to find the water sign and the game froze on me. I also got this weird error message. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it at least 3 or 4 times and just gave up. I deleted the game. Hope no one else had this problem

HI Everyone....just started this game & frustrated already! It's Boring having to go through the little outtakes, they're SO slow. And it seems I go left/right on & on more than actually playing. Just needed to vent, thanks-lol.
Think I'll go play one of my others for now, falling asleep here.
Happy Gaming Everyone

I just finished playing the demo.

At first I thought, wow, if I have to keep turning in circles in order to see anything... and wow, the arrow hint isn't very helpful when it points up to four possible directions at once. But now, at least, I'm starting to get the hang of the overly complicated and only partially transporting map.

So far, I haven't come across any dark locations, and the game doesn't seem to be all that spooky, but there have been a few startling moments.

You've heard of the cigarette-smoking man? Well, here we have our very own cigarette-smoking woman! She's definitely not to be trusted.

I am loving the voice acting, especially the man in the antique shop... not a Czech accent, mind you, nor Bohemian, but more like somebody's Jewish uncle from New York. LOL! But in fact, the acting isn't bad. Not bad at all.

The artwork is quite good and even better in the street scenes. But as Kris said,
...all I'm doing is having an overly chummy relationship with the help icon...
And the stone goliath and alien-looking robots (?) we see in the beginning don't seem to fit with the premise of inheriting an ancient mansion and finding out who your forebears might be, which seems like story enough without throwing in monsters and robotic aliens to boot.

I think I'll pass on this one.

I agree with all said above and this is an old game. I downloaded it this morning to find it already had my name on it and 48 minutes left to play so I obviously tried and dumped this game some time ago. BF are ripping us off. Whats the point in being a member. There was only one CE this week, one SE (to use my very long list of Coupon Codes) and I already had it as a CE. I have 1 Credit and I've had that for a month and nothing to use that on. Where have all the good games gone? This used to be such a good site but sadly no more.If I keep buying CE's I have nothing to spend CC on, so I lose them.
