Summary: Yes very enjoyable indeed! Nice graphics and interesting story! Game was carefully constructed and it felt cohesive and fun to play. Really liked the attention to details in the game. I loved the puzzles because some were quite challenging and required careful thoughts, problem solving and logic. Even the hints/clues that were found everywhere were a little cryptic and the player had to understand them first in order to solve the puzzles.
Summary: Good game. Wide variety of puzzles ranging from fairly easy to pretty tough (I needed walkthrough help about half a dozen times, which I don't consider excessive). Suitably macabre art. Played on iPad, which hung a couple of times but ultimately worked out.
Summary: This was a good one. It ranked high on the creepiness factor, which is great, and the puzzles were varied both in style and in difficulty. The last scene appeared to set us up for a sequel which I immdiately searched for. It apparently hasn't been published yet, but I will certainly buy it as soon as it is. My only complaint is that the "story" button often produced a blank page. What's up with that?
Summary: This game was fantastic. I played it in 2010 and it remains one of my favourite HOG/Adventure games to date- I may even replay it soon, it's just that good! A rare example of when everything falls into place.
Summary: Just finished this game. Nice graphics and storyline. Looking forward to the sequel. Things that bugged me - the "back up" message to get out of a window. Spent too much time circling a pop-up to get out of it. Didn't like all of the puzzles - some I solved, no problem. But others I had to refer to a walkthrough to figure out what they wanted - more instructions would have been appreciated - and maybe a reset button.
Summary: People like Jones who scored this for $2.99 got one of the best deals going! It was first runner-up only to the fabulous Drawn: Dark Flight for adventure game of 2010. This has remained in my top 5 favourite games since it came out. I’ve played it several times, in fact just replayed it, and I agree with Shecat below, it’s always as good as the first time.
Summary: Where the heck was I last September 2010? How did I miss this remarkable game? It was 2.99 yesterday at BFG (I'd never before taken advantage of those games, sigh) and was captivated to the extent I could barely leave my computer! WOW, some of those puzzles, and so many of them! I'm going to check the W/T on the ones I skipped (hate doing that) because when I play the game again I will try not to skip them.
Summary: This game is probably one of my favorite games I have played from Big Fish Games. Graphics: Not to bad, quite smooth and no blank spots or fuzzy areas. Sound: I usually mute these games because of loopy music or annoying/disturbing sounds but this one had some good music that suited the moments. Game Play: Fantastic game play, I wouldn't say it was scary but it had a good plot line and lots of different places to go to.
Summary: This is one of the first HOGs/adventure games I played and it set the standard. It was the first time I looked up the reviews here which I have found extremely useful. Overall the game deserves the 4plus stars. I've just played it again and the second time around it was, after playing many other games, just as challenging - a very nice surprise. A young woman is trying to find some information about her family after receiving a letter.
Summary: Where has this game been all my life? The Witch's Prison is like a perfect combination of eeriness, strangeness, riddles, puzzles, AND awesomeness. The game starts off as Kiera Vale arrives in Blackwater Asylum, where she supposedly will find clues about her ancestors. The asylum turns out to be abandoned long ago. Seems boring? Well, I'll gladly tell you one thing; it isn't. There are so much positives about this one. From the commentary ("Rest in peace, Mr. Creeps.
