Summary: This was a really short game, but fun while it lasted. It isn't your typical HO game in that you aren't given a list of inane, nonsensical objects to look for, but rather objects that have direct relevance to the adventure puzzle at hand. At last - no more senseless searching for pipes, bats, hearts or maple leaves! Excellent graphics, an effective soundtrack, good voice acting, and a well-paced plot kept me going for this one.
Summary: Good game. Feels like the creators had been planning it to be several chapters long and decided they would just publish it. You can finish it in less than 2 hrs. for 1.99..Ok game. I wouldn't pay more for these" almost a real game" shorties.
Summary: Its been awhile since someone had reviewed this one and the reason I'm writing one now is that I am getting ready to play The Last Act and I didn't want to come back and have different thoughts about this game after playing that one. This is a game put together very well. Beautifully drawn scenery and readily playable HO scenes. Although at times, there were some items which were hard to locate because they were very small.
Summary: This definitely wasn't the best game I've ever played...but definitely wasn't the worst. It was worth the price to download and play. It was visually appealing, which is big for me. It's a good "zone out" game if you're just looking for something to kill some time or escape for a little bit.
Summary: I really liked the game and that there seemed to be purpose for the things you were finding. The puzzles were worked into the storyline. I do wish it were longer, but it was enjoyable enough to play again in the future once I have forgotten some things. It did work on my Windows 7. It froze once but was very early in the game and I restarted with no further problems. There is another Campfire Legends available as well.
Summary: Gorgeous artwork, riveting sound, shimmering ghosts, sudden in -the- face encounters. If you're like me you're gonna hold your breath and practically jump out of your skin as this excellent horror tale unfolds. It all begins with a group of teen aged girls telling ghost stories around a campfire. The girls, nicely drawn and with considerable personality, are discussing two friends who barely escaped from a serial killer with a hook for a hand.
Summary: This series has potential if only the games were long enough. The story line could be drawn out and made much more interesting easily enough, it just felt like the creaters didn't even try and were just churning out another HOG for a fast buck. It's not worth the money as it is, though.
Summary: I had just played Campfire Legends: the Babysitter, and loved it - this one is just as good, just seemed a bit shorter. The character you play gets dropped off at her parents cabin in the woods for a romantic getaway with her boyfriend and finds the cabin with all the lights burned out and the place is ransacked! You start off by trying to get the lights back on in the place - meanwhile, boyfriend still hasn't showed up...
Summary: I purchased the Hookman game after the Babysitter one thinking it would be just as fun and it would incapture my attention. But it didn't. The game was shorter, I finished it in a couple hours, there wasn't a lot of places to go when your trying to find hidden objects. The graphics are good, theres no time limit. This would be a great game for anyone who is looking for something a little more scary and mysterious for the first time. Over all I liked it.
