I am actually reviewing the standard game here, because I can't access the platinum version on Funpass. I wasn't sure this would be my kind of game - I favour those with realistic graphics, rather than obviously drawn ones - but the visuals were definitely part of the fun. From the title, I was a bit uncertain whether it was aimed at kids. Definitely not. This is very much an mature audiences game. I did find it a little difficult at first to get into it, because I stumbled around blindly for a while but helpful hints sorted me out. Soon I was looking up and realising I'd forgotten to eat for hours. I didn't move from my pc until I'd finished the whole game. What I think I liked most was the creepiness and the story. You just know some of the decisions made in the game are gonna turn out badly and there's almost an anxiety about how it is going to all work out. I'll definitely be playing this one again.
I really enjoyed this game. It was spooky and the puzzles and story are interesting. The HOG scenes are pretty creepy. Not for small children, but I would recommend it for adults and teens.

This is a fantastic game. Great graphics, great interaction, great hidden objects, great story line. One of the top five HOGS I've played and I've played a bunch. Well worth it and can't wait for another like it.

Another great HO game as well as finding objects to help you out to seek other objects to progress. The HO games are clear so you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding things, There are two reasons for not giving it four stars. The first is finding the "Beyond" objects in every scene. Great fun looking for them, but absolutely pointless. No bonuses and no clue as to where you've collected or not collected so that's a shame. I only picked up 27 out of 36. The other is that there weren't enough puzzle game - in fact I'm struggling to think if there actually were any. That said, a great game with lots to do and a great map to show you the way.
Great HOG. I didn't find the objects difficult to find in each scene, the best challenges were to figure out what inventory items were needed to problem solve and advance in the game. Enjoyed the story line, graphics and audio. Super job.

I enjoyed the game, but thought it was too short and the plot wasn't very well developed.

For a HOG this is one of the best I've played. I'm not a fan of hidden object games but this one has such a great story line that it didn't matter! I recommend this game for kids and adults alike!

Wow, this has got to be one of the best HO games I've played in a long time. The graphics are incredible and it's one of the first HO games that actually have short video's that play during the game. The story line was good and the charaters were even better. Great game.

This wasn't a bad game at all. Shame that it's so short, though, because I'm a programmer myself and I can imagine the time spent on this game. I don't think it's worth the purchase, though. If it would come with a few minigames or something, maybe. The story line is great, but the drawback is the length. It's not a very long game at all.

This game has an intriguing story line that kept my interest up to the end. It was easier to figure out than most I play, but the level is good for children around 10 or 11 years old who are not frightened by the story. I would not recommend it for children who are sensitive to abuse issues and scary pictures. Personally, I wanted it to keep going and get the characters safely home, so I expect more of the story to follow. The ending was pretty abrupt.
This was a pretty good game overall. Lots of objects to find and use, nice storyline. I gave it 3 stars because I'm an avid h.o.g player, and this game was not challenging enough for me, the mini games were super easy too. I will say this, I have played three times trying to get all of the 'changing objects'. I keep missing 2.

This was a good game, I played straight through in one day. I found it to be pretty challenging, that's why I couldn't walk away except for small breaks. There were times that I didn't know what to do next....but eventually I figured it out. Items in the HOG were easy though. All in all, the game was fun.

I had a hard time walking away from this game. I wanted to continue playing until it was solved. I have many games to play, but I kept coming back to this one.

I thought this game was just too dark and gross. I don't want to play anymore of the evil type games. Come on game makers. Make something where we don't have to look for cockroaches and skulls in hidden objects. How about something uplifting!!
