Well, I did the trial and uninstalled right afterwards. I like a challenge as much as the next player, and I was moving along well enough until I got to that blasted fuse box puzzle. The hint system consists of you earning them by finding fireflies that look more like beetles. They could be anywhere in any scene but are soooo hard to find at times. And to be able to skip any puzzles, you have to unlock three different areas of the "skip" by finding multiples of said fireflies to do each "unlock". The developer made this "casual" game far more complicated than it should be. There are a few scares in the trial hour which I would've loved seeing throughout the game but being stuck in one place for so long with the fuse box just turned me off wanting to play more. I'm an experienced gamer so I'm not complaining to those who love this kind of gameplay. I've played other games where you have to earn your hints so it's not that. It's that you have to have so many fireflies collected for each of the three areas before you can skip the puzzle at all. This slows down the gameplay considerably and, for this gamer anyway, just made me annoyed because it kept me from learning more about the story so it is a "no buy" for me.

I thought the fuse box puzzle was pretty simple. There is a note next to it that explain how to do it - if I remember correctly.

I bought this game eons ago, when it first came out. It's the only game I never want to replay all the way through because it scared the hell out of me. I screamed (the cat) when I played the game the first time, and when I downloaded the demo from here not so long ago, I screamed again (had forgotten about the cat).

This is one game where I rather hold my hands in front of my face while searching the scenes (like I do when I watch a really frightening scene in a horror movie). And I am not sure this game is good for my blood pressure either. LOL

I thought the fireflies looked like snails, and they are a little hard to find. But once you know what you are looking for, they are easy enough to spot. Also, they reappear in the scenes where you have found them before, so you never run out of them.

This is definitely a game with a difference. Scary, and not one of those easy HOGs you can just glide through either.
