Give this a try
I think I passed this up when it came out- should have given it a chance. Anyway, short and sweet- this is a good game that would be perfect at this price - or great to fill out a game card. Give this goodie a try-you won't be sorry.

This game was too simple and too short. The storyline was basic and kind of misleading on whom you are really saving. (Yourself or your father?) I have played better from this game maker. There could have been more problem solving puzzles than hidden object. Overall, the game is good for those who want something simple. I guess.

And really nice length - especially for a Daily Deal... I've played CE's that didn't last as long....
This has more HO's than puzzles, and I do prefer puzzles, but the story drives you to the end.... only to find there's more to come, and I cannot wait!
Only drawback for me is the usual junkpile HO scenes.... Ugh. However, they are clearly drawn... no blurriness or dark corners, which I truly appreciate.
I very much enjoyed this game, HO's and all. If you dislike paranormal themes or hints that act pretty much like a strategy guide, then you won't like this game.... However, I appreciate an SE that I don't have to leave in order to look up the blog strategy guide when I get stuck.
The puzzles make you think but are easily solved.... Again, I'm not a big fan of frustration.... I like to puzzle things through, but don't like it to take forever with repetitive actions that eventually bore me to tears.... None of that in this game.
There are two modes of play if you prefer a greater challenge....

Creepy noises and eerie music are the perfect background for this asylum that has imprisoned people with supernatural abilities. The angels were a lovely touch and I actually had a chill when Icarus was released from his cell. Great story line. Wonderful graphics. No VOS, just text. Lots of HOS which were challenging and non-interactive. Puzzles were pretty hard, and some I didnt understand what to even do, but the skip button is pretty quick. Hint button for all phases of the game. Task list. You do re-visit some HOS, but I didnt mind since some were well hidden. Lots of exploring vis a vis the elevator, once you find all the buttons. Quite a few seek and find and challenges of what to do next. Long game, over 6 hours for me on casual play. There IS a cliffhanger ending, which is probably resolved in the CE, or hopefully, leading to a sequel. Try it, you'll like it!

The storyline was good.Game was good. However, going up and down, up and down on the elevator was making me nausea! If you like going from one floor to the next alot, then this is the game for you.

An Asylum to Remember
This is an excellent game for those who like complex moves and many locations. The game is highly creative and the length of the game gives you your money's worth and more!

I really enjoyed this game. Everything from the story line to the balance of adventure/puzzles to how the game flowed overall, worked for me. There are no voice overs which actually was a plus, because it added to the atmosphere of the game. Would definitely recommend.
