I really wanted to buy this. I downloaded the trial twice (win 7). Both times there was No Video!!! Just black screen and music. I did let it run awhile (2-3 min.) to see if it was just atmospherics. No joy. Please fix. I'm still interested in buying this.

Both games are unique and original and warrant a trial run. The Yellow room is a little vague in it's direction but if you muddle through it is a decent enough gaming experience. You have little to no direction, but a walkthrough is helpful and easily found as the map you have at hand is little help. I did like it though. The woman in white has a modicum more assistance as I did not look for a walkthrough assistance until I was well into the game. They were both somewhat entertaining and I will say as a gamepass member I enjoyed them both.
This bundle contains two Victorian Mysteries: 'Woman in White' and 'The Yellow Room.' Woman in White was introduced by Gamehouse in 2010 and was considered by most reviewers as 4 or 5 stars. The Yellow Room was introduced in 2012. The graphics are better, and the voice overs are quite superb. BUT--both games are short on help. The hint button is useless unless you need help within an HO scene. There is a map within the Task List that shows you where things still need to be done, but it doesn't mean you can do them immediately. You might need to do other things first. Both stories start out all right. Woman in White is this mysterious woman dressed in white who appears at a mansion and tries to warn the occupants of danger. The Yellow Room is a classic whodunit story with an attack in a supposedly locked room. You have both a detective and an ace reporter working on this one, and you are the photographer for the reporter. In either story, if you miss a clue you are more or less lost unless you go find a walkthrough, which can be very helpful. The HO scenes are a bit more difficult than the average and are very enjoyable. The minigames run from very easy to moderate. But the endings of both stories are completely wrapped up through narration rather than play. The Yellow Room has so many gaps you have to suspend belief. But the drawings are quite well done, the colors are good, and they are both worth playing. They are both short: Woman in White takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and The Yellow Room can be finished easily in 2 hours Taken together though, they provide a good dose of entertainment. Suitable for teenagers, but not young children.
