Summary: I just finished playing both of the 'House of 1000 doors' games and 'Dark strokes' and 'Mystic Diary, Haunted Island, just did'nt stack up to them. I found it rather boring, with way too many hidden objects scenes. The music was alright but made me sleepy which may be why I found it boring also, but I have to say that the graphics were nice.
Summary: This is a fun game (non-violent, non-scary) which presents scenes in several locations -- inside a house, outside the house, on an island, in a cave, and under the sea. The graphics are excellent and, of importance to me, not darkened. I'd guestimate that 85% of the game is finding hidden objects and the remainder is solving easy to medium puzzles (which can be skipped) or using found objects to unlock secrets.
Summary: I am playing this game right now, and I love it!! I need the walkthrough occasionally,and for the last object I was seeking, I had to go on the online forum and find the location of my needed thing. I love that because it keeps the game interesting! I have played several of these games on CD and this one is one of the better ones. Would highly recommend it. (Note: I am in my 60's, have two advanced degrees, and still find this challenging enough to be fun!
Summary: the graphics were great on this game. if you like a challenge this is the game for you. it goes back and forth between locations, I had to keep referring to the walkthrough. it is one of my favorite games now.
