Hallowed Legends: Samhain
Good game to pass the time...
My biggest gripe with this game was the achievements. I missed 2 or 3 - the main one being "taking more than 10 minutes for an HO scene" AKA "Slowly but Surely." Guess I should have read what I was aiming for initially instead of waiting until the end of the game; but the HO scenes were so easy, you didn't need 10 minutes OR hints. Decent level of puzzles, from easy to slightly challenging - nothing too frustrating, though. Good deal for a free game.

a deal for 2.99!
A few good, challenging puzzles, but otherwise nothing special. Still, It is a grab for $2.99.. so i recommend it!

Good mix of adventure and HOS
Slight annoyance -- Cernunnos was not a demon in Celtic mythology; he was a horned god. But, leaving that aside, it's a fun game with moderately challenging puzzles. Some of the puzzles, though, require you to just randomly try different combinations until you hit on the right one, rather than providing clues. Every HOS resulted in finding something which was used later, so they didn't feel like just routine tasks. At times, the steps were just not logical, usually returning to a previous scene to play an HOS scene that was not there before. Some of the actions either made no sense - such as using a single bucket of sand to put out a roaring warehouse fire, or a knife to cut a piece of paper, when fingers would do the job just fine -- or were ambiguous. A machete most certainly will cut tall grass; acetone will definitely kill a plant. It is also very touchy -- you had to hit just the right spot for an object to work. As is usual with most of these games, there are a few vocabulary issues. Either the term used is British, rather than American, or, again, it's ambiguous. Several times I had to use a hint, to discover that I had been looking at the object all along, but that's not the word we would use to describe it in America. Other times, there were two different items that the term could be referring to. I also had trouble several times with getting puzzles to respond, but that might have been because I was playing on streaming.

Super Fun!!! I liked jetting off to different locations and leaving the old ones behind. The only thing I wish it included were voice overs. Have to knock one star off for that. (2013)

Too many HOS and Too many Industrial scenes

Excellent graphics, good sound and storyline. Most puzzles were easy. This would be a wonderful choice for a beginner HO fan.
