Summary: Fantastic Creations: House of Brass A wonderful little ride to a dream fantasy world - if you love mechanical machine fantasy puzzles - this one offers a lot of them. HOS were quite different from usual junk piles offering variety. Great graphics - with attention to minute details! Wished voice over was better! Extremely engaging to the last moment! And when the game ended felt suddenly pulled up from a dream!!
Summary: A wonderful steampunk adventure game. It is classified as a HOG because it does have hidden object scenes, but they are different then the usual. In every HO scene the player has to find all objects of a certain type, ie. cylindrical objects. These are not your typical, find the objects on the list scenes. This gives the game better ranking IMO because that standard way gets very tiresome.
Summary: I bought this game, but is kind of broken or so. After a while playing, my whole computer shuts down and i have to restart the system. I never had this with any other game and have no idea, what to do. Wrote to BigFish about it. Strange. After trying to fix the problem i got a coupon for another game. Very fair and lovely of them!
Summary: Krystal has pretty much said what I thought about this game. Mostly I liked it for the bright and pretty graphic design; I prefer that to spending my gaming time in a rundown mansion or some filthy hospital, and steampunk is one of my favourite environments for that reason. I also thought the voice work was quite good, and enjoyed the variety of puzzles. They weren’t too hard, although I skipped a couple mostly because I don’t really like them (and I suck at doing them).
Summary: The graphics alone were worth four stars in this game. I must say whenever i come upon an elevator in a game I have to sigh as I know I will be making endless trips up and down. What floor was that again? This one was not too bad but you will still be making quite a few trips up and down. This had an interesting story, lots of puzzles of all kinds and some really beautiful rooms. The planetarium and greenhouse being my faves.
Summary: I played the SE of this mostly adventure game. There are HO scenes, but of the find 12 of "X" variety, not specific scenes with lists. This is another scientist gone mad tale, but the particular crazy house he inhabits is well laid out in terms of finding your way around. I appreciate that I never did lose my sense of direction and could pretty well remember where I needed to go to solve a puzzle.
Summary: I agree with nearly everything the Gamezebo reviewer said. House of Brass had a promising start. Like the reviewer, I thought it might turn out to be a story about redemption, possibly a reunion with a long-lost family member. Unfortunately the ending was just the standard escape-and-the-house-burns-down thing, and instead of a tale of redemption, your character's childhood memories of her grandmother's stories of the wonderful house with the incredible inventions are...
Summary: Well, I liked this game because of how the hidden object scenes were. MCF had morphing items and now this game has find 12 of (fill in the blank) items. It's different from a lot of iHOG's that I've played and I liked how this one was done. The game starts off as you being a little girl remembering how your mother would tell fascinating stories about a house that had clever gadgets.
