I had higher hopes for this game. The premise is very good and has a lot of potential, but unfortunately, it fell flat. I was expecting something creepier from the host, like him trying to sabotage your game, or making it harder to accomplish your goals somehow. All this is is a straight HO game. You spin the wheel which decides HOW you will find the objects. As you are playing, you have Bonus Rounds, in which you click as fast as you can, bits of "chips" or "circular pieces", that can help (hints), skip one or more wheel HO modes, or unlock other HO modes on the wheel. There are 10 different modes on the wheel, including List, Silhouette, Find 10 items, Puzzle, etc. There are other characters in the game that have been "lured" and caged along with your grandfather. These people are incredibly whiny and wimpy. You have to play to release all of them before you can win your grandfather back. Sorry, this game is flatter than my hair on a bad day.......
I enjoyed the game...it helps relax you. Loved finding all the different objects.

I found the game a bit irritating, especially when a bonus round crops up in the middle of a tricky scene, it throws me right off completely. I must say I prefer an adventure type hidden object game. The game is not to my taste at all.

I enjoyed the game, enjoyed the different kind of searched. Continued on and completed the extended game.

Nothing exciting about this game. From the looks of the Game Host, I thought I would have at least been a little scared.

This is a game that gives you a boost for your HOG skills. When you feel as though a game is getting the best of you, you are struggling then pop this one open and have at it. The game is not difficult, not at all. Kids might enjoy. Parents of course are the deciders.

I played for about 20 minutes of the free trial and could not take it anymore. This game has no redeeming social value. There is not much of a story line and every time I spun the wheel for a different HOG, I got the same type - a silhouette game. If I could give it negative stars, this game would get -10*.

i actually liked this game. very interesting story. creepy seeing people in cages hanging from the ceiling. the music was suspenceful. i also liked the different ways u found the hidden objects-list/silouetts/puzzles/find 10 similar items, etc. relaxing, but fun.

If you like HOG's and nothing else, you'll probably like this. There are variations on the game - silhouette, combine, find 10, etc., but still just more and more hidden objects. I got bored quickly. I prefer there to be a point to finding the objects - more of a puzzle game.

This is my first hidden object show game. I see that there are two others which I will definitely try. I thought this was one of the best hidden object games I've tried and I've tried many. It's hard to describe, but I seriously recommend you try this game. I thought the story line was cool and the games are well thought out. This is a good replay game because each scene can be different.

I love dark stories and I was truly looking forward to playing it, but what a disappointment this was for me. There was nothing exciting about this game. They could have made it so much better if the HO scenes were somewhat related to the strange host or the storyline. I played through the whole thing, but left me feeling rather blah. I'm just saying not for me. Give it a whirl and make the decision for yourself.

Got bored with this one really quickly. The announcer's voice is annoying and it is just the same stuff over and over. Don't bother with this one!

Aside from the Bonus Rounds, this game fell short. They tried adding additional ways to search for objects. However, the story was flat and the search to release the grandfather left a lot to be desired. I did finish the game, but couldn't continue with the extended play. I was glad when the original story part was over.

Great game we play it with our grandson (age13) and all of us have fun with the game. However in the expert area our grandson did figure out how to get 100 % every time. But we changed the rules so he can not do that, well worth the price. Note: Gamehouse is a great company to deal with and customer service is the best.

Well, I couldn't take much of this one I'm afraid, never made it all the way through the demo time. The storyline looked as if it was going to be promising but never turned into anything, it was just one pointless HO scene after another...after another, after another, after another!! Very repetitive and very boring, particularly as the scenes were far too easy and there were no mini games, no adventure element, no forwarding of the plotline...I just couldn't see the point and quickly got bored. Maybe one for those who only like the HO scenes in a game and always skip the mini-games? Well, that's not me I'm afraid.
Just not what I want in a HOG. I prefer more of a challenge. This would be ok for a younger person or beginner. Just not for me. Of course, I have gotten spoiled by the ever expanding and challenging games.

Well this could of been a great game in my opinion but this game did nothing but downright ANNOY me and pretty much from the get go. What you are doing in this game is trying to save unlucky contestants from a demented game show host and quite demented alright I'd say. Seemed like he was trying way too hard to be funny and scary at the same time but nothing but annoying in my opinion. I only saved one contestant because I found their whining voice annoying as well and just couldn't cope with this game anymore. Then of course, I'm sure, after you rescue all the contestants from the demented here you find the missing grandfather but I obviously didn't get that far. Could of been a great game as you spin the wheel and whatever you land on is how you find the objects and just to name a few ways: a list, silhoutte (which I hate), a riddle, find 10 fruit for example. The problem with this is I always seemed to land on finding by a list or my hated sillhoutte. Oh once I found them by riddle. So seemed to land on pretty much the same thing every time so no real variety. Most items I did find pretty easy to locate except for the silhoutte and a couple of the riddles but hint is plenty and charges up pretty quick. The graphics were just barely OK in my opinion. YES AND THE ANNOYING GOES ON WITH THIS GAME! Another HUGE annnoyance in my opinion, here I'm sitting here trying to find the objects and then a bonus round pops up. Oh and not just once, sometimes 2 or 3 times during one round of finding items. You pretty much have to do it right then because it blocks some of the items you need to locate and all that is, is finding tokens and doesn't give you much time at all to locate them. Plus the tick-tock, tick-tock as you're running out of time got on my last nerve. Every game I've played the bonus rounds are at the end of a level not right in the middle of your game play. So saving one contestant was more than enough for me cause I had to stop the madness, cut this off, and pull the plug already. Just way more annoying than fun. Give it a whirl however as you just may enjoy this game which I hope you do, but definitely not for me.
I like this game for several reasons, There are many different ways you have to find HOs. Some of them I liked and some I was not crazy about. It was kind of fun watching for the bonus to pop up at any time and then trying to find all the pieces in that. There are plenty of clues, but a lot of repetition too. I purchased the game just to see how it finished. It is not very long but I did not try the bonus portion of the game yet.
