What's New in Version 1.02
- Fixed Skip Button
This was a serious challenge. Worked well on iPad2. Only complaint would be that there are no instructions on the mini games. Some were obvious on what you need to do, but some were so hard and with no instructions were impossible to solve without the walk-through. Just some minor tips would have helped there (such as "remember the pattern on the dream catcher"). (although I solved that one by pure luck and then realized what it was.) Because the game can take so long to play, and no diary that tracks all of those little things for you, you tend to forget them. And the solution to getting rid of, or even seeing the demon, was so un-obvious that I had to use the walk-through. Even that didn't help until I ended with the flashlight in exactly the right place on about the tenth try. I give it four stars because solving puzzles should make sense, with the challenge being in getting it done.
What a strange game. I am on the fence whether I liked it or not. Had a good enough story, good enough puzzles, and a good amount of exploring to be had. But definitely had to use the walkthrough, and near the end I thought all the game-playing had been in vain when I couldn't find the last puzzle piece. I never found it, and I think the developers are aware of this problem because I was still able to finish the game.
If you do play this game, my few tips of advice are to take screen shots of the clues so you can easily check them from your photos, and to record the wolves song on your phone and pause it while playing it back in order to put in the right tones. Hope that helps.
Overall, sometimes a fun game, and sometimes not. Oh, and for the most part, not scary. I highly recommend Haunted Manor 1 if this style of game appeals to you.
Great adventure puzzler...
Fantastic point and click adventure with some tricky, inventive puzzles.
I had only a few small issues for the developers: moving from room to room was often a bit confusing due to non-consistent touch areas (for example, some touch spots to move forward were quite low on the screen, which resulted in many accidental room changes occurring while you searched for clues...)
Also, the inventory items don't realign themselves after one is used, so you often must scroll past 10 or so blank boxes to see what you are holding.
But these are very minor issues in what was a great game that provided some nice challenging puzzles. I'd definitely recommend.
