Summary: I purchased this for my granddaughter, and ended up playing for hours. She has not seen this yet, so I cannot review her reaction to it yet. ;-D - I think this is a good game for a 6 year old. Not for, maybe, a seasoned game player. The games have different levels, and had some that were a little challenging, for me, but not so you want to put it down, in discouragement. You can play the timed mini games in story mode or separately.
Summary: One reviewer called it the "fun side of awful". I just say awful. I have and enjoy the touchmaster game and was looking for something else with a variety of short games. This was certainly not what I had in mind. I wont play it at all and the kids and grandkids never last more than 5 minutes.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter, and it wasn't what we expected. If you can't pass a mini game in the "story mode"- you are basically done with story mode. You can't move on until you are done with that mini game. I wouldn't buy this one again. A game isn't any fun if you get too frustrated with it too fast!
In my opinion, it isn't as bad as it has been reviewed

Summary: Despite the terrible reviews I'd read about this game, I decided to purchase it since I liked the concept of mini games around a haunted house. I personally find it slightly difficult to try to get all the mini games "passed" to obtain the keys. But whether or not you pass or fail a mini game, in the story mode you still continue to move on.
Summary: I'LL SAY IT AGAIN, THE FUNSIDE OF AWFUL. I DISCOVERED TOUCHMASTER AND SOME SIMILAR GAMES, SO I FIGURED, I'D LIKE TO FIND A FEW MORE GAMES IN THE SAME VEIN. THIS WAS ONE OF THEM, AT FIRST IT SEEMED GEARED TOWARDS YOUNG KIDS BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE ANIMATIONS AND A SIMPLISTIC FORMAT OF PLAY, THEN YOU DISCOVER THE ACTUAL MINI-GAMES...SOME OF THEM WERE EXCEPTIONALLY CHALLENGING, BUT ONCE DONE THERE REALLY ISN'T ANYTHING MUCH LEFT TO DO BUT BE BORED.
