I actually LIKE what some other reviewers hated, i.e. no directions!

Summary: It's interesting to see that some reviewers were frustrated with this game because there were no instructions to tell them how to proceed. For me, that is what I liked best about it. In some ways, it reminded me of Myst, which was a game that I loved on the computer (I've heard there is a DS version of Myst too but that it is too tiny to be really workable on the DS).
Summary: This game is not for the newbie at puzzle cracking. The game plays with no instructions, just intuition. The game starts with you inside a mansion. Only the rooms you've gained access to are visible on a map but as you open more puzzles and safes and therefore open more doors and more rooms show on the map. There are three levels to the mansion: the first floor, the cellar, the upper floor and the loft.
Summary: Having read the other reviews, I hesitated in my purchase of this game. However, I am very pleasantly surprised. True, there are no directions but it's been a long time since I've had the satisfaction of truly solving a puzzle -- figuring out what to do and then how to do it. A couple of them were somewhat annoying in that I eventually reverted to just pushing buttons until I stumbled on the right combination.
Summary: I like games that make me think, and this one fits. Some of the clues a subtle, like worn keys on a key pad that show what numbers have been pushed most. So you need to observe and think, very Sherlock Holmes. I have been stumped on some of the safes, so I move on and come back later. That still failing, I wish there was a good hint sourse. Most clues online are for the PC version, that has some differences. All things considered, it's an great game.
Summary: My father bought me this game for Christmas, and as of last night (the 27th), I made it through the entire thing. It's true that you don't get much if any help in the way of clues, but that's the way it's supposed to be. It's a challenge, and it keeps you busy, and you get a real sense of accomplishment when you solve each of the puzzles. Granted, my boyfriend and I (he's 23, I'm 22) tended to work together, so it may help you if you go through the game with a friend.
