Grandpa always was a little eccentric. A fantastic engineer, he was always buried in his work, always coming up with new ideas and inventions that as a child held you wide-eyed in awe.
Now, after many years, you return to the house that holds so many fond memories for you, with a promise from Grandpa to show you something truly amazing. You can't even begin to imagine what it could be!
It's a dark and stormy night as you arrive at Grisly Manor. The rain beats down hard, lightning flashes in the sky as the sound of thunder fills your ears. You already feel a little creeped out, but when you make your way inside, the house is curiously empty. Grandpa is nowhere to be found!
But his presence is everywhere.
Familiar objects have been re-engineered to create puzzles for you. Clues abound, and as each puzzle is solved, the solution to others present themselves. As well as new puzzles, of course.
Grandpa obviously spent a lot of time making sure that nobody could solve the myriad of puzzles strewn about the house. Nobody but you, his favorite grandchild…
Can you solve the mystery of Grisly Manor?
Inspired by classic point and click adventure games!
Beautiful graphics that draw you into this mesmerizing adventure!
Lots of items to collect and puzzles to solve!
Fantastic soundtrack and sound effects!
Auto saves your position.

What's New in Version 1.7
Very short, disappointing
I was quite disappointed in this game. It was very short, I finished it in an hour. The graphics and gameplay were very elementary and simple. There was not a lot to explore, with most rooms only having an item or two to find...there was hardly a challenge. Some things that you had to do didn't make much sense, and there were things you could click on that you could not interact with that did nothing to advance the story, or game (dusty objects, stained glass window, screws but no screwdriver to open the grate). Also, you could revisit objects where tasks were completed, which made it confusing since I kept going back to those things thinking I missed something there, before realizing that the game was too idiotic to put more depth than one clue in each place. I guess I was expecting more puzzles, more searching, more complexity. The other games I play have more of an interactive story line that keeps you interested in the game, this story didn't make me invested in the game. The ending was very anticlimactic and disappointing. I'm surprised it got such good reviews. I'm glad I didn't pay for this either. I would have been upset if I payed for such an ill put together game.
I'm not a regular "gamer", preferring "thinking" puzzles over time restricted action games. And so enjoyed this game - but have to admit, I looked up the cheat codes for the "globe" puzzle. I think the "clue" in the study was just a little bit too vague. And the location of "the study" for me was not that well defined. I only found the study through the "bathroom page". And for me, clicking on the different colored bathroom wall tiles produced intermittent results. Clicking on the tiles sometimes produced text, sometimes did not. Maybe a bug? Anyway, I did enjoy this game and would recommend it! Wish it had been longer... =0)
Great Game for most!
My kids and I played this game before bed time for 3 nights. They LOVED it! They would not have been able to guess through everything on their own. They might have been frustrated by themselves. We all thought it was a bit short and a bit abrupt at closure, but that's because we enjoyed it and did not want it to end.
Wish the "puzzle professionals" would stop bashing a game simply because they can solve it in record time.
It would be nice to see some type of difficulty rating (or setting) so that people could adjust their expectations.
Thanks for the game, I'd like to try one of your others.
