Okay, enough with the puns. But it was one of the better HOG I've played. Very involved, excellent graphics (though dark at times, not surprisingly), creepy music. NOT for the faint of heart (or stomach!). You have to kill a mouse. With a mousetrap. A cute little mouse. And then he's laying dead. 'Nuff said. HO are numerous and very challenging. Mini games are interesting and varied. Long game time. You do go from area to area, but it's easy to jump with the map. I did think it was odd that, compared with other similar games, they'd draw hallways or other rooms or alleys and you couldn't explore them. That seemed a bit one-dimensional. My only complaint is that the prizes or evidence you collect after finishing a particular HO screen have nothing to do with the objects you were searching for in that screen. If we need a key, why not hide it in one of the HO screens and give it to us that way? I did like how I had certain items in inventory for a long time and then it was suddenly there for a reason. Highly recommended game for older teens and adults who don't mind killing adorable rodents.
