Antique Shop: Book of Souls

The old diary uncovered in what was once Uncle Jack's antique shop is a puzzle unto itself. Why are there so many entries from different people? Why did Uncle Jack write the last entry, and more curious still, how did the exact date of his passing get recorded on the final page? The only clues left behind are Uncle Jack's diary entry itself which seems to be filled with riddles alluding to some greater truth. Join Emily on an adventure across the old world to unlock the puzzles found between the pages.

That, to me, is worth the money. While this game is not up to the Enlightenus games, few are. The screen was much brighter without having to adjust brightness through the options menu and the objects were larger, of course. Every scene includes a HOG and some also have puzzles. Perhaps the other hints about setting your resolution may help. Hints refill quickly and there appears to be no timer or penalties for wrong clicks, which is great! The music would put you to sleep as well as having to read the story line. But try the demo and see for yourself.

  1. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarcofagus from Don't judge what others think, decide for yourself. So, bottom line, despite all the bad reviews, IMHO this is truly a VERY good game and the storyline is detailed and believable [for a paranormal storyline that is] It says there are 60 levels and I'm a slow player, so I'm expecting many hours of play. There is a lot of reading, and the character names are unpronounceacle.

  2. The bad reviews are not deserved. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by codester9 from Ignore the bad reviews! That, to me, is worth the money. Very challenging things to find in each scene but I liked that a lot. I will not be purchasing.

  3. I found it a delight. The mini-games have so far been easy - word seek, matching - but I would expect them to get more difficult as the game progresses. The scenes just kept repeating themselves over and over.

  4. The graphics are excellent, but static. It's a definite buy for me during today's hour sale. There certainly wasn't enough story line to keep me engaged. These developers have a future if they streamline and pay attention to the details a little more.

  5. I too liked this game because it was different. It adds to the hidden object of the game greatly. The graphics are beautiful and the background music is pleasant with a sort of medieval Celtic New-Age melody that loops, but is not intrusive or distracting. This really had none of it.

  6. While this game is not up to the Enlightenus games, few are. While many of the hidden object scenes are full of small bits of stuff there is also a "flashlight" object don't recall if it's a right click or left that makes all the stuff easy to see and find. As she interacts with the book, she realizes that it has an odd effect on her. This really had none of it. That, to me, is worth the money.

  7. While this game is not up to the Enlightenus games, few are. We need to watch the character walk down the hall. Not everyone likes so many of the other hidden object games out there but would love this one.

  8. Happy HOG'ging, Fishies! What does it mean? Even though he just died two weeks earlier, his name, date of birth and death were written in the book already. As she interacts with the book, she realizes that it has an odd effect on her. The magnifier doesn't work that well, but I liked the challenge of finding hidden objects.

  9. Interesting plot line: Emily finds a Book of Souls in her deceased uncle's antique shop filled with names of people and their birth and death dates. The scenes just kept repeating themselves over and over. Anyhoo, I love the storyline; it's engrossing and above average in the way it's presented.

  10. The magnifier doesn't work that well, but I liked the challenge of finding hidden objects. While this game is not up to the Enlightenus games, few are. I really liked that this game had a lot of hidden objects, so many of other games don't have as much. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by msmile3 from Possibilities! Hope you do not have many games like this one.
