Summary: It was a good attempt to educate while providing gameplay, but for some reason it was not able to capture my attention. I had to stop frequently and come back to this game, as I found myself bored and yawning after 15 minutes. The graphics were mediocre, and the backtracking became a nuisance once you got further into the game. The puzzles were really easy, hardly a challenge, and the HO scenes were ok.
Summary: I enjoyed the game, also you are given history about the period and the Salem Witch Trails during this particular time period. The game was fairly easy to play, I have to consult the walk through for a few components of the game. You will learn history will playing this game.
Summary: My experience with NatGeo games has generally been negative, but I enjoyed the trial of this one, so I went ahead and bought the complete game. I now regret this. (It might have been okay as a $2.99 sale game.) On the positive side, the objects are almost all period-appropriate, and I was taken with the way my first HOG scene was interrupted by arson — I've never seen anything like that before. If only the rest of the game had more such original touches!
Summary: Just finished the game and must say I did enjoy it for the most part. The HOG scenes did seem a bit on the easy side but the mini games were kinda cool I think they could have integrated more mini games and gotten rid of the familiar ward which did get old after the 3rd time. I think the game has a bit of replay value as I missed one of the familiars the dog to be exact and I had a few inventory items left near the end.
Summary: In German language I would say, this game is "not fish and not meat", I hope this is to understand in English. I´m a bit bored about the Salem theme but was hopeful because of the "historical" notes. But that was not enough to make the thing to a really good game, sorry only average. The issue with the dreamcatcher was totally displaced and absurd. Graphics and music were OK. A game if you need one urgently, but there are lot of better ones.
Summary: The game started very bad not smooth at all once I stated playing I enjoyed the 1st hour but not enough to buy alot of reading which i read as it is part of the wholegame.So I went for hidden mysteries salem secrets free hour and the game play was alot better then this so I brought salem secrets and am enjoying that game very much.
Summary: I used a BFG bonus point to buy this game. I was playing Hidden Mysteries Salem's Secrets, and decided to take a break (it's challenging) with this Salem story. The first time I played I got all but three of the Familiars - could not figure out how to get the cat at all - had the milk in my inventory but nothing to pour it in. The first time was 4-5 hours for me and I enjoyed reading the story along with the game play.
