Summary: There is not really much to add, the other reviews cover everything. However, the game is not a straight HO, the mini games can be tough; but you get to replay them after completing the game in order to unlock a bonus game. What I really liked were the stories written about the ghosts. The developers had a great sense of humor and reading the ghosts stories showed that humor. All in all a nice change from dark, fairy tale based HO'S.
Summary: Overall Impression: a fun, quirky game - although since it's pretty much a straight HOG, it could get a little tedious at times Media Description: The scenes were crisp and clear for the most part, maybe just a tiny bit fuzzy every now then (or that could have just been my eyes). The colors were nice and bright in most of the scenes. There were a handful that were a bit darker, but they were taking place in the basement and cellar so that was understandable.
Summary: I enjoyed this game. However, it has some flaws. Firstly the good bits. Graphics & artwork are excellent. The scenes were beautifully created & drawn. The characters are cute & quirky. Voice acting are pretty good too. Finding objects in the scenes are quite easy. Music, sound, effects & animation are very good. Gameplay is easy & the story is easy to follow because it was made up of individual stories of the spirits.
Summary: I beta'd this game and the developers listened and made it easier to find the ghosts! This is a great, funny game with many scenes and interesting things to do. My cursor was sluggish however and at times it was quite difficult to click accurately. Several of the mini games required far more dexterity and a quicker reaction time than I have, so I will never see what the 'secret trophy' is. The story was interesting, with a very nice resolution at the end.
Summary: I enjoyed playing this game a lot. The graphics are also pretty good. It is a pretty basic and straight forward HOG with a few puzzles thrown in. The story line is fun and simple. The only bad part is I tried to play in window mode and the game disappeared. From the looks of the Big Fish Games forums a few other people have had the same problem. Once my game is fixed I can't wait to finish it because I do enjoy playing it.
Summary: I cannot understand why anyone enjoyed this game. It was the longest most tedious HOG I have ever played. The ghosts screaming at you for too many clicks was by far the most annoying sound in a game I've ever heard, and that is including the wrong click sound in the Big City Adventure saga. The hint system was too slow for the amount of objects in each room, finding the ghosts was for children, and the riddles, well they were just laughable.
