This game challenged me and I liked that. The suspense of the story line keeps you going and it is a challenge to figure out where all you need to go and what you need to find. I was very pleased with myself when I finally reached the end and rescued the girl but the ending (which I won't reveal) blew me away! This is a really good, original game that I think all IHOG lovers will have a great time figuring out. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

A variety of puzzles, interesting story, and not too easy or short. The only confusing part is some times you have go back to the same place you played a HOG game and play another one. I didn't think to re-look at locations I already played once.

Found this game to be instantly engrossing and was sorry for the trial hour to end. This is on my 'to buy' list. A little too much traveling back and forth to find things, but that can sometimes be relaxing. Good artwork and backgrounds, and interesting puzzles in between hidden objects.

I'm still enjoying this - which tells you that it's not one you'll probably whizz through in no time and then be surprised it's ended. That said, the story line and actions are completely daft but the puzzles and the 'How do I go on from here?' are good exercise and keep you interested. I bought it simply for those reasons. Graphics are good and it is difficult enough to be worthwhile. Not a classic, by any means, but it might have been if they'd bothered with more credible charaterisation and story.

From the start I thought the game to be 'just another Hidden Object Game'. I soon found out just how wrong I was. As the game progressed, I found myself having to think more about where I had been when the plot called for returning to a place of importance to start the next phase of the game. Overall, I think the game is great. Once started, it was very hard to have to stop for other chores. As for the ending, well you will have to find that out for yourself.

the ending was very disappointing! It was like the game maker said "ok....done with this game, let's start the next one!" I thought the ending was very lame compared to the rest of the game. It is worth playing though.

This game ended in a weird way, the story line was off on tangents very often, and having a map of where you were at any given time would have been helpful. I also like a game that, once it's been completed, mixes up the items to search for so it can still be thought-provoking each time it's played. I also wasn't sure why I was collecting items that never had to be used for anything, such a bracelets. I'm glad I used my 'coins' to get this game for 1/2 price because I'd be even more disappointed if I'd paid full price.

This HOG is a lot like Bedtime Stories except the ending was a surprise!!! Can't tell you the ending.. I'd have to duct tape myself!! The key point here is to enjoy the game, figure out how to rescue the lady. Hint button recharges fairly nicely. The graphic is awesome, and the puzzles are a bit tricky but you'll get through. The one thing that I really did find useful is the walkthrough but I would strongly advise that you use it sparingly. Good luck with the game and I can tell you...at the end, I wanted to jump in the water and kill someone!

The art work was well done and the story line kept it interesting. It felt like I was reading a page turner mystery novel. This is definitely on my to buy list and while its too dark for younger players it definitely is fun for adults. I did find the back and forth a bit redundant but as in any good crime scene you need to reinvestigate to find answers. The writing on the items to find list was a bit small, but other than that I really liked this game!

Fairly easy, yet having the help button available was a big plus. Finding your way in the fog was hard sometimes.

I started playing the trial version about 8pm an when the free hour was up I was not ready to stop. I quickly purchased the game and continued to play. Needless to say at 4am I still was not ready to stop but had to find a place to end. Shadow Town is fast paced and the hidden object screens are not easy but not so difficult as to become disinterested. The story line is addictive youwant to know what happen next and how the story came to that point. I look forward to playing the sequel which I will buy without the trial stage. Great game for the money. Very entertaining!

When I started this game, I couldn't put it down. I really liked the "walkthrough" section of the game when I got stuck. It wasn't scarey at all because I had all the time in the world to work through the puzzle. I think if I had to work against time, I would have been scared a bit. The ending was too sad though. I will not play it again because of the ending.

I like the combination of strategy, hidden object with a story line, and complexity. I seldom play mystery/horror type games, but this one I got stuck on. What I did not like was the ending; My goodness! I wish it was happier. I felt horrible afterwards. KD

I love this type of hidden object game. It have variety and puzzles not just hidden objects. I really like that you have to find items in one place to use in another. These really make you think. Love these keep them coming.

I played through the demo but I won't be buying it. It just wasn't original enough, all of the scenes were bland. The items were way too easy to find. This game just isn't for me.

Wish there were more games out there like this. Most areas were great, but a few really fell short. The ending needed work, but overall it was a great game.

This has to be one of the best games I've played since discovering, and completing many times (!!!) the Mortimer Beckett series. The graphics were excellent, storyline a bit odd, but didn't detract from pleasure of playing.

More than just a search find - this game was challenging but fun.

The game was good and will play it again, but i think they need to do something about the ending. You think theres more and all of sudden its the end, at least make a second one.
