Newer game players may shy away from this intriguing, "old fashioned" (by today's standards) point & click game. When I first started playing I was a bit lost. But give it a chance. It doesn't have lots of "fancy stuff", like mini-games and hidden objects, but the story is compelling and there is a very helpful hint button (though I try not to use it as I like using my brain). The story develops as you play the game, you find out how you came to be there and what you need to do further the game, etc. The graphics are simple but excellently done and Escape from Darkmoor Manor is well worth the money. I miss these kinds of games where you really need to think to advance in the game, but it's not so challenging that you're constantly asking for hints. Very well done - I highly recommend this game.

This is an old style point and click adventure game driven by an excellent and intriguing storyline that you gather in the form of notes along the way. It is a true adventure, mystery and quite spooky. Despite some reviews claiming it was developed or made for younger folks, this is a truly well scripted plot and very immersive. There are NO hints, no voice overs, nor any bells and whistles yet it is truly GREAT GAME for those familiar with the challenge of a quality adventure driven game. Definitely give it a try to see if it is your style and if you are like me [a long time adventure game lover] you will be SO happy GameHouse offered us this fantastic game.

got this game and was very disappointed with it. you got through the house collecting objects in order to get out of the house and you wind up in a chapel at the end.... then you go to open the door...... and the game just ends! no ending, no other gameplay... and it doesn't even have credits... this game must have been written by a kid,...learning to program.... I don't suggest this game at all!

There are no bells and whistles but the images are sharp and made me want to go on. This is like reading a good book that you can interact with. Give it a try.

I would have loved this game, if... 1) the hint button only told me to pick up the newspaper. It didn't matter where I was in the game, that is all it told me. 2) Way too short. I couldn't believe how short. I watched a walk-though video and I thought they must have made a mistake. 3) The biggest problem was the ending. There wasn't really one. I don't know what was going on nearly the entire time, and still wasn't sure after it ended. Who was I playing? Who wrote the notes? (The notes were spoilers, since some told of things not yet found) Why were we there? Apparently not for the reason I thought. I read other reviews elsewhere and they mentioned things they read in notes I never saw. Did I miss notes? If so, a game shouldn't allow that, since I seem to have missed part of the story! I really liked the game play, the true adventure of it, with no hidden objects, and no cursor changes. But, it needs more to it. More of what is going on. It left me entirely unsatisfied! (I rated it highly, because the questions asked were is it thinky, is it challenging, is it fast paced. It is. But, it is short and confusing.

This game is pretty short, not very complex, and without a detailed user interface. It feels like a 99 cent phone app more than a PC game. It's functional and the optional hints keep you from getting stuck, so I'd be satisfied with it in that context. As a PC game, it's disappointing.

Pure Adventure, no Hidden Objects, which is a definite plus. You wake up in a basement and have to find your way out. Letters written slowly tell the story. Do not hesitate to click everywhere. NOTICE TO PLAYERS: I found the ending to be quite abrupt. I thought it was a glitch, but it turns out that the credits were suppose to roll, instead all I got was a black screen.

There was nothing intuitive about what to do next. I did indeed get through the game quickly using the hints. I probably figured out less than 5 things to do all by myself. And then off to the black screen ending and my forcing the game shut down.

Like other reviewers I was surprised just short this game was and by the sudden ending. Graphics are good and the style of hints and presentation is different to the norm. There are no humans pictured and no audible speech which of course make foreign language versions easier. Rotten research on the UK though. Just try taking a train from Marylebone to the Yorkshire Moors! Let's say it's the long way round by more than 3 hours.
