Whilst this game come under the 'hidden object banner' and to all intents and purposes that is what it is, beyond that it is a tad confusing. The story centres around Mark Twain and William Shakespeare and how events that happened in Mark Twain's life effected 'The Bard'. Christopher Marlowe also crops up as Willam's 'ghost writer'. The plot though whilst intense is sometimes over-complex to the point of being confusing. Also the some of the mini-games whilst fairly new to this genre were not explained as to what needed to be done thus I just randomly moved/pressed etc until I got the results. This is not really satisfactory in a a game like this as you want to know exactly what to do. I will also give a health warning to people with epilepsy or suffer badly from flashing lights. As this game is set around a ghostly theme, there is plenty of 'atmospheric' thunder and lightening and other flashes so if you do suffer badly with this then this maybe a game to avoid. Game overall took around 9 hours to complete, but some of that time was to try and understand the over complex story line.
