This game was par for Big Fish. Not sure if it's me or if it were the scenes themselves, but most of the hidden object scenes I was able to find most, if not all, of the items by just zooming in and clicking the objects that looked peculiar. Took the fun out of it a little bit for me. Also most of the other puzzles had no instructions. Just given a square full of tiles to sort or pair up. Quite simple and not a big variety of puzzles. There were also a couple logical errors in the game. The one that sticks out the most --> in the building with the doctor that you show evidence. There was a room that you could see something above the wardrobe but couldn't reach it, so I had to find a ladder. However, in an adjacent room, I was able to find AND unscrew a plate located up at the ceiling! Why didn't I need a ladder for that?
This was not one of the longer Big Fish games. I finished it in under a day. But even so, it's one of my favorites. Why? The music was spot on for the time period and vibe of the locations. The plot was interesting and easy to follow. Also, since I play on a phone, text size can, and has been in the past, be too small to read comfortably. The text in this game was a decent size the whole way through.
Looking back on it, I just wish there would've been a bigger variety of puzzles, that's all. All things said, another great game, Big Fish!
Beautiful! More Poe 4 iPhone please!!!
Stunning graphics and I loved the music (I usually hate game music).
I could not put this game down! Yes, you actually get to investigate a murder scene (with a very handsome partner, lol, nicely drawn ladies!)
This game avoids all the nit-picky problems with many HO games:
1. This game has a story!
2. The items you are looking for belong in the story (authentic to the time period, no cell phones hidden in an 1800s story game)
3. Great resolution when you zoom
4. Seriously, I'm a classically trained musician and I loved the music.
5. Hours of game play. Granted I never rush through games, but this one took me days.
6. Hint guide was helpful. I didn't realize that I was actually supposed to investigate the home of the victim, lol. There are needed items that you don't just get from the HO scenes. Before you get to the Rue Morgue (the impressively long chapter 7), close the game long enough for the opening movie to play then actually watch it. It has a clue. You are looking for something...
Get the Collector's Ed. It's worth the price. I haven't played the extra game yet, but the basic game is easily worth $2.99.
Loved, loved, loved it! 😍👍💘
ERS, please make the rest of your Poe themed games available for iPhone.
Those of us with PowerPCs cannot play them online.😰
If you build it, I will buy! 😍
For iPhone ?
Perhaps I could easily give this 5 but A) it might b great on iPad but iPhone ,except for HO areas, ur unable to zoom out to make searching easier
B) too many things happening all at once. I'm just trying to size things up and accidently touch something and I'm supposed to be doing sonething already or finding HOs. Idk when and if I've found everything or not in a room or a HO area. Sometimes have to go to other HO areas to complete another HO area but how would I know that so stupidly I keep looking
I really LIKE the game , story and concept but before sequel try fixing these little quirks for us iPhone users. Sometimes it's too small and/or too dark. Is probably awesome on iPad but for now my index finger hurts from random tapping in hopes of finding some awfully small objects in dark areas
