Welcome to the first game in a stunning new saga! When the dead cannot find release, the House of 1000 Doors serves as a portal that allows the living to help them.

Love it but hate the complications

I love playing this game. The graphics are great, the HO games are fun, and the mini-games are awesome. I’ve been waiting for this update so I could buy the full game and was ecstatic when it came out. But now every time I play it, no matter how far I get into the game, when I save it and close out of it, it says the game is damaged and I have to re-install it and start all over. I don’t know if it’s my computer or not but I don’t have this problem with other apps so I’m assuming it isn’t. I hope this gets fixed because I love playing this game but I don’t like making so much progress and then having to start all over. Help me out, Alawar Entertainment!

Loved this Game!

I absolutely loved this game! Many of the reviewer mention technical issues however, I didn't have any. There was one mini-game that was so frustrating that I wanted to throw my laptop against the wall. My Mac gets a bit "jerky" sometimes and I was having issues. I loved the story line, the graphics and everything else. I was a bit disappointed with the abrupt ending. I bought the other House of 1,000 Doors game and loved it, too. I am hoping for a third game!

Beautiful graphics… too short though

I purchased the full collector’s edition and I was very excited to play it. The graphics are beautiful and it has a lot of fun puzzles. The problem is that after spending $10+, the collector’s edition only offers and extra chapter that can be done in one hour and a few samples of concept illustrations. That’s it. All and all I went through the whole thing in one night. A shame, because it has a lot of potential, but I don’t think I’ll be spending so much money in something so brief.
