Played with FunPass. The game was a challenge - mainly because there is no cursor change when you can interact with items - but since there is no penalty for wrong clicks, I ended up clicking EVERYTHING when I was stuck to find out what I was missing. Story line was a little weak in my opinion. Hidden Object scenes a little strange too - again, since there is no cursor change to indicate what objects interact with others or to indicate that I could zoom in on an area (too look INSIDE a basket for example), I was back to clicking absolutely EVERYTHING. Also when clicking on objects listed in the HOS, I ran across a few that had to be clicked in a certain spot. For example, clicking on the blade of a knife would yield no result, but clicking on the handle "finds" the object. Irritating.
Interesting game if you don't mind a little translation differences, or zombies. The ho scenes items are oddly named at times and almost all require interaction to locate some items which is where most of the added clicking comes in but if you stop and think before you click you can figure it out most of the time. i.e. click on items you would most likely be able to look into, or open. I liked the adventure aspect, having to find items not in the ho scenes, then figure out where to use them. Another think about it and you can figure it out, but if you need help your little GPS map will point you in the right direction. The story is a little disjointed, but holds together alright, music is really more like a soundtrack for a horror movie, but that fits the storyline so it was ok, but definitely not relaxing. Really don't think it was supposed to be though. I played with fun pass so not a purchase, but enjoyed the game well enough.
I really enjoyed this game. Some of the items in the finding objects part where miss labeled and you have to figure out how one thing goes with another. It doesn't show the gears or a different hand or anything over something you are supposed to interact with but the storyline and overall game play was a lot of fun. Not very much back and forth and the hints worked perfectly as well. I had a hard time stopping once I started
This game could have been so much more than it was. It was obvious that English is not the primary language of the dialogue and caption writers. In the HOGs, many listed items did not turn out to be attached to correct artwork. In one example, the item listed to be looking for was "cup." When it was the last item and I still could not find it, I hit the hint and it highlighted an umbrella. After you find all of the items, a final item comes up on the chart and it is illuminated so you will know where to find it. A couple of times an item illuminates, but no caption appears on the listing. It was this kind of carelessness over and over that took a lot of the pleasure out of the game. There was a map that was helpful and you could click on that to travel from point to point rather than clicking through so many screens. Yet I rated it somewhat clicky because you just start clicking on random things trying to see what matches up. There were not sparkles to attract you to items of importance. Once again, you had to click on everything. I did finish the game, so it held my interest to that degree, but it was a frustrating experience.
the game its self seems cool at first but you end up getting stuck in dead ends and the Hints in it are really bad and just keep sending you in circles. also there is no walkthroughs for when your stuck and let me tell you, you get stuck a lot.

Some very extraordinary descriptions of HOs. Who would have guessed that a trumpet would be a "pipe". As per previous reviewers I find I have to click on everything to guess what some of the objects are. The map is NO help at all some times as there is just no indication of where to go next and the hint does not show you either. This is one of the poorest HO I have ever played, I remember HOs like this being out about 5 years ago. It is also as though they got bored with the story half way through so they rushed the ending.
I gotta say playing a game with the undead is fun. It's a interesting game with a great story line. The graphics are good and the game is just the right amount of challenge. The only warning I'd give is it's probably not the best game for a kid.
