Summary: well actually I'm ashamed to say I haven't gotten to it yet, so many new games I've gotten from Amazon, but I'll say this, it downloaded just fine, installed perfectly and I played for about an hour without a problem. The graphics are great, the story line seems very interesting and just complex enough. If I find any different, I'll sure edit the rating but I suspect, based on that hour and the graphics, this is going to be a good one.
Summary: This is the game that started me on hidden object games, and it does not disappoint. Here, you are Kate, a writer, and you are sent a mysterious package-a self-writing typewriter, which leads to an invitation to come to a séance, which causes an ancestor of Kate to come forth and direct her to the House of 1000 doors, where she is given the mission to help souls that are suffering and solving problems in various worlds accessed through portals inside of the house.
Summary: Inventory-based adventure; point and click on arrows to get to next scene; hidden object plus other puzzles. Worked well on windows 7, 64-bit. Very nice graphics and mystery. Nice artistry. A bit spooky and creepy. Thoroughly enjoyable though. Worked well on windows 7, 64-bit. For Viva Media discs to load on my computer I must follow a set procedure.

Summary: Most of the games I have downloaded from Alawar have been great, but this one is just perfect. From the voice overs - of which there are not too many, to the colorful drawings, it is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Summary: I ended up buying this game based upon the other enthusiastic reviews of it, and I wasn't disappointed at all. I had a great time playing and really enjoyed the fact that often you had to return to locations that you had been to before to move forward in the game. That felt much more realistic than just moving in one straight line through the tasks and leaving behind locations for good once you've finished the task(s) in them.
