Phantasmat Collector's Edition
I only played a half hour of this before deciding to purchase it. I enjoy the hidden object games with the dark and creepy story lines and good plots. This fits all of that for me. That and the fact it was a deal cause I buy too many games from here.
I tried the match 3 mode but like the hidden object mode better. Built in strategy guide is a bonus since I do get lost sometimes. Like the wall papers that come as a extra.
This is a game I would recommend to my friends and family. Urge people to give it a try as it's fairly good for a older game.

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GAME!!!!! <3 :)
I loved this game from the moment I saw the preview screens on this site. I bought the collector's addition on my grandmother's ipad. It was outstanding. I can't stress how much I love this game. The graphics are AMAZING! The sounds=AWESOME! It was the FUNNEST game I have EVER played. There is no game that could top this one. There is not a single complaint with this game. I WILL STRAP EVERYONE TO A CHAIR AND FORCE THEM TO PLAY THIS GAME!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

A quintessential HO.
A personal favorite of mine. I'm sure Phantasmat will prove an absolutely charming experience for those of you who enjoy casual and mildly spooky-themed games. The visual aspect is intoxicating...very, very well done. The detail is painstaking. Something I rarely see: this is a game with personality. My chief qualm, I think, with similar games is their banality...the player is bland and not quite characterized, a gross reissue of standard tropes, etc. I will admit Phantasmat is not without such tropes...however, the tropes are manipulated in a quirky and intriguing way. To be concise, this is a far cry from your average creepy hotel HO. Voiceovers were well done and convincing (if a wee bit dramatic), the music was a pleasant backdrop just interesting enough to be wholly present without distracting from the plot at hand. Overall, engaging and colorful...not a hefty challenge, but enough to keep one's attention. :)

I tried this game on a recommendation from another reviewer, and I truly loved it. The story was one of the better stories I've seen, although I'm not too picky. The graphics were wonderful, the exploration was unique and spooky, and the puzzles were just challenging enough without being frustrating.
I can absolutely see why so many people give this five stars!

I absolutely loved this game from start to finish, sorry it had to end. This one is definitely one I will replay. Loved the underwater graphics.

I seldom review, but I had to express how much I enjoyed Phantasmat SE. So much so, I am buying CE. Excellent game elements from beginning to end, which is seldom in a game. Although a ghostly mystery themed game, characters are believable and ending was surprisingly uplifting. Game play on my laptop in advanced mode made for difficulty finding a few HO, so Match 3 option was useful! I absolutely loved character voices and their features. That alone is why I would play Phantasmat again and again. I purchased SE upon release and should have played game sooner above all others. I recommend Phantasmat CE and enjoy a truly unique game!
