Stray Souls: Dollhouse Story
Good game for HOG lovers
This game was fairly easy with LOTS of hogs. The hidden objects were easy to find. The hint button was fast and very helpful.
If you like hard games this one may be too easy for you.
Kind of short, but still OK.

A Pretty Simple Game
I think this game's just OK.
The HO puzzles are not too challenging. There are additional objects to find but nothing seems to happen after managing to find them all.
Though the start of the game seems promising, the storyline seems to be rushed. So it's a pretty quick game, it was over before I even started to enjoy. This game could be better. =)

It's a short game but there's a lot to do here.
I originally demoed this game close to a year ago but didn't like it enough to want to buy it. But since I'm such a sucker for sales and it's the COW for $2.99 now, I played the trial again to see if it would grow on me. And surprisingly for me, it did! I've played a lot of HOPAs since my first go-round with Dollhouse Story, so I got a lot further along in the demo and liked it enough to buy it now. I just finished it so it's a short game, giving me around three hours of gameplay on casual mode, but there's a lot to do with minimal backtracking. Serious gamers would not want to spend more than a DD or COW price so either grab it now or use a game coupon if you're considering this game at all. It's an easy game with puzzles that can be skipped but I only skipped a couple when I grew impatient and wanted to just get on with it. There's a map but it's not transportive but you don't need it anyway because the hint system is very helpful in pointing out which direction you need to go. And the hints recharge relatively quickly during the hidden object scenes, which are quite nice and are not junk piles. You won't need to consult the walkthrough either because the hint system is so effective, and each section only allows you to go a certain distance so you really can't get lost. This makes for very easy gameplay and I like that sometimes as a welcome break from harder games. This game also has some surprising twists and turns in the plot so any "faults" in its design can be easily forgiven. The animations are wonderful and the graphics are crisp and colorful, which are always big selling points for me. Dollhouse Story is not the best game I've ever played and it's certainly not the worst either, but it definitely deserves a look.

It was awesomely creepy! Gosh I play a lot of these games and this was the best story I've seen in a while.
My only complaint, but it was still lovely to play, was there needed to be more puzzles.
I highly recommend this!

Stray Souls - Dollhouse Story
Another enjoyable game. It was a bit harder, so I had to start over and enlist the help of the walkthrough. Luckily I only had to use the walkthrough once in a while. The hint button was helpful in guiding me through the game. Plenty of scenes to investigate. It held my interest through to the end. A long enough game, but again, a good one I did not want to end. M.G.

i really enjoyed this game. the hints did help you in the HOS and where to go next. they recharged fast! graphics were really good for this type of game. better than expected!!! no puzzles which i didn't miss. you had to figure some things out but not other games where you have a skip button.

A Bit of a Bore
I found the SE of this game a bit on the boring side. The beginning is predictable (car crash) and while the story was a bit interesting, it could have been done better and the ending is quite flat. I finished it in a couple of hours and while I know I won't be playing it again, it was a way to pass some time. Don't expect great things tho'

Too Confusing Hidden Object Game
Well, I found it to be very confusing but I guess these type of hidden object games are not for me. Even in relaxed mode with the supposed hints I couldn't figure out where to go or what to do. It was more aggravating than anything else. I spent the hour trial time going back and forth, not accomplishing much. It doesn't mean the game wasn't good I guess I just need a straight forward hidden objects game where you don't need to go back and forth from one screen to the next trying to find clues or they need to make finding clues easier for challenged people like myself.

Very good game, but way too short. But it on sale.

creepy, yet really fun!
My honest opinion about Stray Souls Dollhouse story, I skipped on the game for awhile. But then i got the demo in a "what the heck, i'll give it a go" type attitude. and I do not regret it one bit!! The graphics are to my liking, the storyline is alright, i did like the 'dollhouse' was involved where you had to collect 'dolls around the game, that was interesting,yet neat concept from the devs. I absolutely LOVE these kind of creepy games. Dollhouse Story is on the top of my list of the "spend this coming halloween at home".
