Epic Escapes: Dark Seas
I really enjoyed this HOG! Wonderful graphics and story line. I got stuck a few times but with a little thought was able to make it thru! This is a game I will play again and again.

An interesting trip through an upsidedown ship
You keep having the same nightmare about being on a sip in trouble but this time when you wake up you are in the ship that has been overturned by a tidal wave (Psidion any one?) I was interested in the story from the beginning and stayed interested to the end.
The graphics and cut scenes are not up to today's standards but still acceptable. Some of the objects to be found are hard to distinguish but still findable. As usual you need find certain items to solve puzzles and advance the game. You are helped by a young girl that is trying to escape. There are plenty of HO screens in this one and the puzzles are fairly easy.

You don't need to purchase it. I was able to beat the game in the hour given.

Another Older Game!
Based on the demo which takes you pretty far into the game, I was bored, bored, bored! The story line was uninteresting - girl has bad dreams and you relive it with her. She's on a ship that is sinking and she and a little girl she finds are trying to do something (get out - but go where?) Stupid IMHO.
You have to pick up life savers for hints, but you get more hints than life savers you pick up and the hints work well.
You mainly go from scene to scene to solve a HOS. You also pick up a few inventory items. Of course the inventory doesn't lock -- I hate not having that option.
There are no voice overs and the dialogue you need to read doesn't stay up long enough to read. Just because I'm from a small town in Texas doesn't mean I'm a slow reader.
You must play the demo and read some of the reviews. For me this is a no buy and a complete waste of an hour and now another 10 minutes to write a review. Just be forewarned.

Did I play the same game as everyone else?
Geez, I thought this game was for the first time gamer, the graphics were horrible and there was absolutely no challenge.
Just my opinion.
