If you like the "dark" side type of a game in my opinion anyway this is the game. I've downloaded some really great games here at the Gamehouse but I'm here to tell ya this blows them all away and again my opinion. This game just has it all. JUST WOW!! I'd give this 10 stars if I could. The game play is like many where you have your HO scenes and getting your inventory items to move forward in the game. There's also LOTS of wander around going back and forth between locations as you will visit many locations. I found there was lots to do and be done in this game. There's also tasks that you have to complete with some character interaction as I found it to be just the right amount; not too much or too little interaction and while there is text on the screen the characters do talk in this game. This is where it ends as far as being like other HOG's. For starters you can choose your challenge as there are 3 modes: Casual: You get more hints and no penalty for over clicking. Challenge: You get fewer and vague hints and minor penalty for over clicking. Extreme: You are totally on your own as there are no hints, HO scenes are timed, no skip for puzzles, there's also severe penalty for over clicking. The only "hint" you get is showing you where the HO scenes are to find the items. So for challenge here depends upon what mode you choose and I played the "challenge" mode. I also tend to be a slow game player and try to take it all in if I find it to be a great game. My normal time for a HOG is usually 4-5 hours. I probably spent 6-7 hours on this game. I did find it challenging/thinky however not overwhelming and didn't need a walk through. For the HO scenes you can play it like you would usually by just finding the items on the list OR you can switch to match 3. You can also switch back and forth at any time during the game. How the match 3 works is you make matches so the little golden color eyes drop down to the bottom and then it automatically finds them for you. Just way cool as I played it both ways. You could even play it all the way through finding by the list or match 3 and never switch. The graphics to this game I found to be excellent, awesome, very well done. I especially LOVED using the diving suit to go under water to find stuff. You also go to a couple locations by boat. JUST WAY COOL. The characters downright creepy and I mean that in a great way. The old lady while creepy I also found her to be just a hoot - funny. Also character voices right on. Not annoying at all to me. The whole setting of the game CREEPY! From the ending looks like a possible sequel which I hope so but if not the whole story I found to be satisfying. Didn't disappoint me at all. So a HUGE kudos to the creators here. Lots of time/thought went into this game I can tell. I can't honestly think of one thing I didn't like about this game. I just thought it was awesome! As always however this is just my opinion of the game. Give it a whirl and decide for yourself. I sure do hope you end up enjoying it as much as I did. Thank you Gamehouse for bringing this to the site here for play. I sure hope to see a sequel to this game. Hope to see more games like this one here on the site! This ROCKS and is the BOMB! 10 star game in my book!
