could have been better

  • Summary: The game was like a Myst sort of thing with a few interactions, but not enough to make it scary or interesting. I don't want to be alone when I game. The other characters are a big reason to play and have more of an adventure.

Fun game, for a low price

  • Summary: I bought this game at a second hand thrift store for 50 cents, but it's all good. This game is a very good game for an independent maker. The voicing for ben is a little cheesy, but so is the whole game. But it's still a good kind of "cheese." Took me a few hours to beat, but i was entertained all the way. Doesn't really have the "scare" factor, but it does cast a sense of impending doom.

Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle

  • Summary: Loved It! I bought the game because I was out of Nancy Drew games and enjoy that type of mystery gaming. This one was better than any of the Nancy Drew games I have played and I have played all but a couple of the newer ones. Very exciting, wonderfully visually appealing and just difficult enough to look up a walkthrough. My type of game!!!!

Dark and clever!! "Barrow Hill" is great fun!

  • Summary: Wonderful graphics and a challenging and great-looking environment- made this game a great deal of fun. Mouse-controlled interface was smooth, and the audio was above average. This game however was not very frightening, with only two really startling moments. Overall-the ambiance and the sense of isolation made for a really enjoyable sojourn to a dark and creepy cyber country-side.

For the more advanced player.

  • Summary: There are no hints, or instructions and screen moves with you at every turn. Need to have your deductive and logic skills honed for this one. I had to find a walkthrough on the Internet as I was stumped at one point. Very challenging.

Quite entertaining!

  • Summary: I'm a huge fan of adventure games, and not so much a fan of gore-y horror. This was a creepy game that had several genuine chill moments but avoided cheap scare tactics or gore. I love that. The story was quite unique -- you'll never look at a big rock the same way! This was the first (seriously, the first) puzzle adventure game that I did not ever have to look up what to do next. And yet, I didn't find it to be easy.

A solid independent entry in the horror/adventure game genre...

  • Summary: The plot is of the "wake up in a car on an empty road with no idea of where you are" variety. You stumble upon a gas station/motel/lodge and notice empty cars still running, tables knocked over, and eventually a very scared man locked in his office. You must then proceed to do the typical adventure game thing ... read notes and collect items to put the mystery together.

Shameless

  • Summary: I am a long time fan of adventure games, especially those of the horror variety. However, I have never, ever, played such a pathetic example of a "game." I understand this was a low-budget title, but the graphics, sound, acting, and pacing leads me to believe that this was some high schooler's senior project, on which I assume that they got an F.
