The game has been funny, the story has been nice and I've also liked the scenes. Pity it was tooooo easy. I would have liked to be more tricky and more items to be involved.

Well, I have to say I did enjoy this game, the scenes, and storyline. I did however get stuck and was about to unistall the game when I decided to read comments in the forum on this game. Thank goodness. I got my self through the game, with assistance from the forum and completed the game. I do recommend this game, don't plan to conquer in 1 day, and do make note of comments/guidance from the forum. Have fun and enjoy the challenging game.
The game has an entertaining storyline, great clear graphics, good choice of voices and nice sound effects – even though the “humming” music is annoying. The mini-games are quite hard but you can skip them. The HOs are simple straight forward HOs and there are plenty of them through the game. The Hint is only available in HOs scenes. Hence, it will not show direction and there is no map. Overall it is a nice game except that there was a glitch in the software – when I placed the last bone in the coffin it snapped out and simply disappeared. First I thought it was part of the game and went looking for it again but to no avail. Since I don’t feel like replaying the game at this time, it remains unfinished -- too bad.
The puzzles were challenging, the graphics excellent and it was extremely interesting. I like having to search for items in order to proceed to the next step. I did have to go to the forum twice to get answers. Hats off to the developers!!

Deadwood was slightly challenging but I couldn't stop playing it! It was rather fast paced and made me think hard! Absolutely loved it!

Very frustrating!! Things are not explained properly. You're guessing and wandering around frustrated most of the time. Very poor hint system (what hint system?!?!) and no help whatsoever in the game itself. The environment and graphics, however, are beautiful. Just not worth it with such poorly designed gameplay. I couldn't wait to finish this game and move ON! I was NOT happy.

This game had an interesting plot, good graphics and kept me interested, but like a previous reviewer, had to resort to a Walkthrough a few times because there is so much space to cover when you're looking for objects to and no map that would let you jump from scene to scene. Had to retrace steps over and over before a new HOG appeared. And boy were the HOG's tough. Must have been a hundred items to look through to find the objects, not just dozens like some games. The puzzles weren't difficult just time consuming and sometimes I skipped them. Got hung up once and a screen wouldn't open for me, so I had to Con,Alt and Delete to get out of the game and then sign back in. Game lasts a long time and I think it would be worth while for you to play if you like HOG's.
FUN FAST PACE YOU JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE IT IS GOING. BUT WHEN YOU GET THERE IT LIKE KNOW!!! AND YOU WONT TO PLAY IT AGAIN JUST TO SEE IF IT REALLY END THAT WAY. GOOD FOR THE MONEY AND FUN

There is a lot to do in this game. A mix of finding things and figuring out what to do with it. I admit, I like to use the hint button sometimes. This does not have a directional hint, just your journal. The game makes you stop and think about what you have in your possession. Once I got stuck and had to find the answer online, and it was right in front of my face. The mini games were okay and finding things wasn't too hard, but actually using what you gained was a little tricky sometimes. All around a fun play.
I gave this game a true 3.8 rating; hence the 4*. I really like this game even though it has no map, no hint button except in the HO scenes(numerous) and the journal is repetitive of what you learned while discovering new locations. The flow of the game is a bit jumbled at times & there is quite a bit of back & forth--here's where a hint button would be nice for you to travel as the town itself has MANY locations. The puzzles are fairly easy(nothing unique) & the HO scenes are close to being junk piles(I've seen a lot worse) but the scenes & objects maintain the western theme even though the scenes are repetitive in different locations but the hidden objects were NOT repetitive. On the positive side...GREAT story line, graphics were great, voice acting was also great, excellent visual effects, great sound effects & decent music. You do need deductive thinking using your INVENTORY to guide you to complete tasks & to find new locations--love the locations & characters in this game--a good memory will serve you well. I was not frustrated but relaxed while completing tasks. Play time-- GOOD value here as it is a lengthy game. I added this HO mystery/adventure to my library because this is a FUN game that I will replay. You will be pleasantly surprised by the FUN you will have in breaking Black Jack's curse. Suitable for mid teens>adults as it's not really scary...it's a great game! ENJOY!!
This game will keep you engrossed for 4-5 hours. The graphics are excellent, with hidden objects pretty easy to find. The dialogue (spoken and written) is good, and the music is fine. The only downside, which kept it from gettin 5 stars, was the amount of back and forth between locations with no map. I sometimes got lost on the twists and turns. Finding where to go next is definitely the hardest part. Once you get where you're going, it's pretty easy. But it is certainly worth playing all the way through. A complete story with a satisfying ending.
Really enjoyed this game. The storyline is pretty original, with a couple of nice twists. Graphics are beautiful and clear. Gameplay and puzzles were challenging without being frustrating. My only problem with the game, and why I gave it only 4 stars, was the lack of any type of help outside of HO scenes. I got stuck several times and without anything to guide me in the right direction--a hint or suggestion system, or even a map highlighting areas with things to do would have been nice--I had to completely exit the game and find a walkthrough.
Positives: Good graphics, decent story line, HO not that hard to find no time restrictions , no penalties for wrong clicks and the ability to skip minigames. Negatives: Too much backtracking to same areas to get what you needed which added time to the game. No real sense of direction on what you needed to do and the order to do it. A hint button, although in the HO games was not available to help guide you. The journal offered very little.
This was your average HOG (Hidden Object Game). Not spectacular like "Pickers", and not the most heinous either. It was fairly frustrating at times figuring out what to do next and there is no "Hint" except in the actual HO portions of the game. If you're walking aimlessly through the streets with a playing card, shovel, empty bucket and screwdriver in your inventory, you've got no way to help nudge you in the right direction. Story was fairly typical; ghosts, bad guys, the "I'm-the-only-one-who-can-help" speech. Visuals were adequate as most of these games are these days. There is no replay value. Download the free trial if you want, but don't bother with the whole game.
Nice graphics/art as well as music, nice ghosts and lots of HO's to find as well as mini games. However, It was to much for me. Just not enough clues or direction. Maybe you can do better. Good luck.

The lack of a hint button made this game extremely frustrating in some parts. The storyline was cute and the graphics were great, but the HOS were cluttered with theme inappropriate items. I would have also liked to see more of Blackjack interacting solidly with the story, not an inkblot. If there had been less backtracking and more logic leading from one scene to another, this would have been a five-star game. As it was, I slogged through the end because I just wanted to be done.
Absolutely loved playing this HOG!!! It was easy and yet challenging. It was almost self explanatory. Hidden Objects were easy enopugh to detect, though Squeaky Squeaky as a hint was not quite descriptive enough for my blond brain to comprehend (LOL) Loved the Game!!

This was quite a challenging game for me but worth the money. It lasts for a good couple of hours which was great. The HOD scenes are quite easy and also has the hints. I don't mind having to go back and forth but I do prefer to know what my purpose is. This game (apart from HOD scenes) does not have a hint button and there was a couple of times I had to go on-line to find the answer. Still worth it!

I really like this game.it wasn't an easy game but easy to follow and figure out your next move. The graphics were excellent I wish all the games had this quaility of graphics as it wouldn.t be so hard for these old eyes.
