The puzzles were fun, and required the play to move back and forth through different scenes to get required objects. Sadly, one of the HO scenes refused to open, and without it, the game couldn't be finished.

I played the first hour and found the game slow and not much of a challenge, Many hidden object searches in dimly lit areas.

This game is poorly put together. The story itself is okay; you put all your money into this old house and find it has a lot of secrets, including an immense treasure, if you can find it. But there's not much assistance for the player. The HO scenes are okay, even though the graphics could be crisper, but knowing where to go next is a real problem. There's no narration to help you out, other than a womans voice reading the pages of the diary, which I am perfectly capable of reading for myself. The hint will tell you where you need to go, and I found myself using it a lot more than I wanted to. However, the hint may direct you to do something for which you do not yet have the right item, which was frustrating. And as another rater mentioned, the curser isn't much help. It did change into a pointing hand when you could pick something up, but there was never any indication when you could actually interact with an item. The mini games were the highlight for me. I thought they were fairly difficult and required time and effort to complete. You do have the option to skip them if you wish. It certainly doesn't have all the bells and whistles you could want, but if you don't mind using the hint button a lot to figure out where to go next, it's not too bad. Tweens and teens might enjoy this, but it's a bit creepy for small children.
I admit I didn't make it very far into this game. It had too many irritating factors right off the bat that could've easily been corrected & would've made things much smoother. My biggest complaint is the fact that while the cursor does change into a magnifying glass when you hover over something you can approach; it doesn't change into gears or a hand or anything else that show you what to take or where an action can be made once you approach it! It also doesn't automatically zoom back out once you have completed the action for that area -- so I spent forever clicking every little millimeter of space all over the place to make sure I didn't miss something -- only to inevitably miss something. Also, do I really need to hear the cheesy woman's voice (that you can't turn down separately) read all the narrative discoveries? The graphics were only average, the moving from place-to-place was slow, and there's a generic little cartoon padlock over the places they don't want you to go into yet. I guess I just feel like if they didn't take the time to put some very basic necessities (i.e. the gears) into this game, why should I take the time to play it?
