Summary: This game was much better than I was anticipating. I thought for $2.50 I would take the risk that it would be bad, but I was pleasantly surprised with how great it was. The story kept me interested and the ending had me thinking long after the game was over. The game is rather short though. I believe I finished it in about 3 hours or so. It may not compare to most games now, but for the cheap price it is well worth it.
Summary: The other night I had a dream that my sons and I were in the mansion from Scratches and they had a huge wrench (ah, the ubiquitous wrench) and were trying to open the secret door in the fireplace. I knew there was a monster down there and I was trying to stop my sons from going and didn’t know what to do, so I woke up! That is how profoundly affected I’ve been from this game which I’ve played twice. It is truly suspenseful and I have the clenched jaw to prove it.
Summary: A Delicious Mystery from beginning to end. A blend of detective work, horror & sadness. A choice of 3D or static. The music by "Cellar of Rats" is perfect & the Graphics are beautiful. A tragic family trying to ward off a terror they created out of greed. Definitely a long game with twists & turns. The mansion's architecture is the key to solving the mystery. If you like being scared, this game delivers. Make sure your lights are on when you enter the Chapel!!!
Summary: I bought this game a couple of years ago and just now got around to playing it. At first I enjoyed it and found it entertaining enough. But I soon tired of opening and closing doors and traversing from room to room and outbuilding to outbuilding. On my pc it took a count of about 17 to complete the door opening process. I quickly hated the prospect of going through another door only to engage in another pixel hunt.
Summary: Unbelievably eerie and suspenseful game, the atmosphere was creepy beyond belief. Just the idea that I'm compelled by the main character to spend four days in a deserted old mansion with no electricity and he wants me to go climbing into the basement boiler in the dead of night to explore the sound of where the scratches are coming from?! Yikes!
Summary: This review does consider the price at the time of purchase ($5.00). Overall, I thought the game was well crafted and enjoyable after I got used to the game play, but it's challenging. Also, I'm not sure about the replay value. The story is compelling the first time around, but some of the gameplay (examining all areas possible) gets tedious. Technical: I had no technical issues with the downloading, installing, or running the game; it loaded quickly and ran well.
