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.
Loved the atmosphere they created. Wonderful graphics and great HO and mini-games. Would recommend as a great buy, already played it twice.

When the opening shots started, I thought this is going to be different, and it certainly was! As a young watchman you are tasked with solving unexplained murders in London. Finding your map in the beginning of the game you can go from one scene to another of incredible HO scenes but be careful not to miss outlying items you will need to piece everything together. The HO's are always well lit, but with the exception of some items they can be challenging. Some of the mini games are easy, but some of these are challenging as well. The hint system is ok, but this games "rates" you on your performance and compels you to soldier on with as little assistance as possible. The graphics are nice, the voices great, just excellent fun from start to finish. This game released in 2010, promising more. I just want to know when the next one is going to be released!
I enjoyed this game, it had lots of atmosphere. The hidden objects ranged from really easy to find to challenging. I liked how the game was an investigation using different scenes and areas to search. The mini games on the whole were good, although I found some a little confusing ~ but I think that is a reflection on my brain power, rather than the game! Definitely worth your while downloading the free trial and seeing if you enjoy it too! Really isn’t one for the kids though
Love love loved this game! Very dark theme, but if you know the story there is no other way. Probably not for kids!! There is actual singing involved (though not the original score!). I liked that there were lots of clues to find and then your own common sense and deductive abilities to figure out how to proceed. Some may find this game frustrating if you want a more guided game. Hope Penny Dreadfuls puts out more!!!

Great HOG! I was " hooked " from the moment the game started. High quality graphics and as the " investigation " proceeds the game becomes more intriguing . Love a good mystery and this one is top notch. Thank you GH . Please continue to make games available of this standard and I will be a" captured " member for years:) Side note : Found this game from another game forum in a member's rating as a footnote. Thanks to all the other game lovers who continue to share their comments and ratings with us all:)
I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It has a nice combination of hidden object searches and having to figure out puzzles/where to go next. The little "hint" messages you got when you clicked on a section that needed something to complete that area were just helpful enough; they didn't give it away, but you didn't end up frustrated, either. The graphics were really amazing - very crisp and engaging. The storyline was also great. The trial ended way too soon! This is definitely one I would use a fun ticket on; I want to see it through!
Totally different HOG. You have to think and observe all the scenes to get you to your goal. None of it hard, but entertaining. Most of the scenes are dark and hidden objects I felt were well hidden. Will be fun to replay.

As my title says I started out not liking this because at first things were hard to find and figure out what to do especially using the hints as I was trying to use the little lamp as it kept telling me it needed to "recharge" above the help button but come to find out about an hour into the game just click on the word that you can't find then hints are provided and it charges up pretty quick and I also normally can't stand games that keep track of your heaven forbid wrong clicking "accuracy" as this game grades you at the end of each chapter but something told me to just stick with this and I ended up LOVING this game. Yes this game was definitely challenging and really thinky on how to use the items in the inventory. I think what really made me stick with this game as I found the guy really funny if you would click wrong. Some of the things he would say really made me laugh out loud. I think this is a game I would definitely buy just to try and better my score as it took me over 7 hours and ended up with a C overall at end. What made me give this a 4 out of 5 was figuring out the hints which I try to avoid but sometimes just have to and the puzzles didn't make much sense to me but the rest of the game once I got going absolutely loved it. Thank you Game House.
It took a lot of thought and planning to put this one together, and it is, by far, one of the best hidden object games I've ever played. The story line is good, and the scenes are so realistic that you feel like you're stepping right into each one. The rain and background music add immensely to the suspense. The objects are well hidden, but not to the point that it gets frustrating searching for them, and there are no penalties for extra clicks. Likewise, going back and forth from one scene to another was fun, not irritating, as in some games. Determining where the special objects had to be used kept the game moving at a good pace. The bear and mouse traps are a little crude and offensive as far as I'm concerned, as they probably would be to some kids. I like the way the hints are given, not highlighting or pointing exactly to the objects, but letting the player continue to hunt for the object in the square. I skipped several puzzles that had no clues whatsoever as to what they were looking for, but I liked the unique picture puzzles and the way they went together. I'll be watching for the next Penny Dreadfuls!
Good story line! Fun game, I would rate this one on my top 10

A lot of fun this game! I couldn't stop playing it. The scenes were interesting and beautifully done, I didn't get tired of looking at them. Challenging without being frustrating, and a story that was actually interesting in itself. I loved the show Sweeney Todd and I actually think that this game kinda lives up to the name. Definitely worth buying.

I didn't think I would like this because of the subject matter - but I was wrong - It challenged me and I had lots of fun with the interaction of the detective's response to my wrong attempts to solve the puzzles - the puzzles were very fun and different from the run of the mill game. I can hardly wait until the next Penny Dreadful game comes out!

This Game was great! I love these types of HO where you have to think about it and use the objects you find so that was a big plus for me. I played the challenging mode which did not really add the pressure because their was no timer. At the end of each level you gen a report card and see how much time you took to finish, your missed clicks and passed mini games. The Mini games were my only issue. There were no instuctions so sometimes it was a pure guessing game on what had to be done. So I had to skip a couple becaue of that. But other then that, this is an awesome game and worth the money.
Loved this game. Thus far I've only played the hour trial but will definitely purchase it. I like creepy, suspenseful, "dark" movies and games and this one didn't disappoint. The hints were slow to charge, which at times was annoying but made me look that much harder while waiting for a hint to be available. Items were well hidden and mini games challenging. I didn't care for the musical portions, although based on some of the other reviewers' comments, I may not skip them next time around. Overall, a definite purchase.
This game was interesting enough but I could never get help. Not with finding objects, but when I clicked when I was in a scene to see where I should go, I could never get help. I clicked all over the Help window but could never get any further than the initial page of cursor changes, pick up things when a hand appears, etc. I even to a walkthrough on another site and could see the help I was supposed to be getting, but it just wouldn't work for me. Also the objects to be found are real out of place and out of proportion. Not fond of the puzzles either, they never told you what to do.
Tried to download this but couldnt.Went out and bought it paid more but wanted to play it cause the graphics looked so good.Its a great game graphics are great.Its not worth buying cause it is really short.I played it for a couple of hours and it was over.Kind of dissapointed about that but great game anyway.Just wish it wasent so short.It was one of the shortest games so far.

I have played a lot of hidden object games and this is one of the best. Great graphics and good level of difficulty. Looking forward to more from this team.

I am still playing, I did use a fun ticket to purchase it. So far, I am really enjoying it. I like the little puzzles you have to solve, where items go and some other mini games. Some of them are a bit challenging, but I like that. The story line is just like the play/movie and the music is fun to listen to. The guy speaking can get a bit annoying - but other than that - well worth the purchase.
