Most of the time it was obvious to me where an object in the inventory was needing to be used and I would travel there and use it. The CE also has collectible war medals and a task bar with listed objectives. The mini-games were awesome!! Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Juju38 from Fantastic!! The games range from hard to easy and are real 'thinker' games. The puzzles ranged from easy to moderately hard. But very nice game - I felt like inside Psycho thriller here and there. I believe a good ending is just as important as the story, so I was disappointed. It was a lengthy game and having played it over a number of days, I lost track of actual hours. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by simonthedog from Loved this! Lots of different rooms and scenes for variety. To Janes Realty 2, they bring the momentum of the game Art Mogul an abrupt and screeching halt.
Not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. The mini games are very entertaining ranging from simple puzzles to brain teasers. The objects you collect are used, so you are not walking around with items in inventory that are of no use. Car has an accident, you are inside with daughter of your friend and stop at the motel maybe to get help or to buy a snack. An adventure game with no hidden objects! This game has live action characters in the cutscenes, and - shock horror! When using the hint button, it refills without delay. The game is relatively linear where a room generally has all the tools to unlock puzzles within that same vicinity, so you don't really have too much annoying back and forth. There were a few times where I missed something in a scene and had to use the strategy guide to figure out what it was. Minimal running back and forth. I was elated. Storyline kept my interest and intrigued me to continue playing to find out what the true story was behind the murders of this family so many years ago. Try it.
The creep factor is high and the imaginations of the developers has no limits or bounds. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by javanda from Creepy and mysterious Start of this game was similar like in The Fog which is also my favourite game. It looks like a hidden object plays like a hidden object but it's not it's pure adventure no search scenes. No HO Scenes I really enjoyed this one. The only downside i feel is the missing HOS, just wasn't the same without the hidden object scenes and just constant running around looking for objects all the time but still enjoyable all the same. The mini games are very entertaining Mad Mouse from simple puzzles to brain teasers. Great graphics and the sound is good. The interesting thing is that there are no HOS scenes in this game! A winning game that I am sure I will replay again sometime. Most of the time it Yard Sale Hidden Treasures: Sunnyville obvious to me where an object in the inventory was needing to be used and I would travel there and use it. It was very atmospheric and the graphics, color, storyline, games, special effects were all stellar! Great job ERS keep more like this coming. The screen would not play widescreen on my computer but that was a minor detractor from the game play. Many of the puzzles were of the "move things into the right slot" variety, which Mad Mouse not always terribly good at, so sometimes I took a sneaky look at the built-in Strategy Guide, which was helpful.
Cut scenes were well done. Most of the objects you pick up in your inventory are usually needed within the same scene or one prior to or following. I just replayed it and had a blast once again. Thanks BFG this one was a winner!!! I did feel as though the game didn't explain things as well it could have done, and that it finished a little abruptly. The only difference is what is happening throughout the game. The story just wasn't much to my liking. It was a lengthy game and having played it over a number of days, I lost track of actual hours. A winning game that I am sure I will replay again sometime. It is fun to play! Great graphics and the sound is good. Everything is timeworn, crumbling, and strange things happen and ghosts are haunting the area. Sadly, it's rare and almost impossible to find one not cluttered with endless junk piles.The story begins with a road trip on Route 66 to take your best friends daughter Monica to visit her ailing grandmother. Although I liked everything about this game, I gave it an excellent rating in all categories just for that fact. The only downside i feel is the missing HOS, just wasn't the same without the hidden object scenes and just constant running around looking for objects all the time but still enjoyable all the same. My review is based on the Collector's Edition. Also you need to collect medals, which also go in the trunk. I prefer brighter graphics, but the muted tones went with the spooky story. Love the visuals with the real people! You actually haven an inventory and have to figure out where to use the items! The story just wasn't much to my liking. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by pennmom36 from Dark Alleys: Penumbra Motel SE I played both editions back to back starting with the Collectors Edition which has music, concept art, wallpaper, screensavers and a bonus game. I just replayed it and had a blast once again. Many of the puzzles were of the "move things into the right slot" variety, which I'm not always terribly good at, so sometimes I took a sneaky look at the built-in Strategy Guide, which was helpful.

As you search for answers and try desperately to save Monica, you find film reels that start to paint a grisly picture. I would tag this a "paranormal thriller" maybe. It doesn't direct you anywhere and only helps when you are in an area that you have something that needs to be completed. There is a bit of back and forth but you're not all over the map which I don't remember- i don't think there is a map to show you where you are. This game has live action characters in the cutscenes, and - shock horror! Great job ERS keep more like this coming. Although I liked everything about this game, I gave it an excellent rating in all categories just for that fact. I think there would have been a far better atmosphere to the game if the music had been spookier. It squeaked out 5 stars because the puzzles and adventure style were very appealing to me, and it took over 4 hours to complete. Minimal running back and forth. I don't go in for downloading the music, or having screensavers, or seeing the concept art, but that's just me - I have no use for things like that. The story line is interesting, the voice overs are very well done and the graphics are decent. The graphics aren't the bright and colorful gorgeous eye popping graphics instead they are a little dark which fits perfect for this game and the time period the game is set in although they aren't the gorgeous eye popping graphics they are still awesome and just fit this game so well. If anyone can recommend more HO free games like this one except for large file , I would be very grateful. The story just wasn't much to my liking.
