Creepy, interesting story
This game definitely has the creep factor. Everything from the music to the distant screams to the graphics almost had me on edge the whole time, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I liked that the story wasn't exclusively supernatural or just science-experiment-gone-wrong, but an ominous mix of both. Putting supernatural beings in darkly realistic places just seems so different to me, so that was enjoyable.
That being said, I felt kind of let down by the story's climax, since it seemed so... anti-climactic, but at least it looks like there may be a sequel in the works, so we can see the "real" outcome.
Playing on expert (or advanced or whatever the highest difficulty is), this was a pleasantly challenging game. The puzzles were not too frustrating, and I generally had just enough information to figure out what I needed to do next rather than wander aimlessly without knowing how to continue.
I can easily recommend this at the regular price.

I liked eveything but the ending !!
This game is fun to play and for HOG fans , there are a lot of them. There is quite a bit back and forth. You might need to jot down what is where because it can be challenging to remember.
Long game play
Lots of HOGS
You have to think about what you are doing
The ending was a real let down but I won't ruin it and say why.
I highly recommend this game:

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.

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.

Very good creepy game!
I really liked this one, the storyline was very convincing and kept me interested all the way through the end!
Very good creepy, eerie music and sounds and cries and screams... keeps you in the atmosphere.
Puzzles and HOS were fine, very junkpiley.
It was a pity there were no VO's, they would have made the game unforgettable.
But it looks like a sequel is planned, and I hope that people will have voices then!
I had a great time for about 6-7 hours and hope you will too!

Enthralling as Well as confusing at times
well i don't usually struggle to find my way around, but there are some places in this game, which is hard too locate, thank goodness for the walkthrough which i needed twice to get me back on track.
A nice challenging game, but would not recommend it for beginners though.
it really keeps you guessing, thats for sure. I recommend this game, especially if you don't mind a dank scenario!

I just finished the demo, so here goes. This game has a strange begining but one you just can't quit on. A girl with a specilal gift gets kidnapped and ends up in an old aslyum. They do experiments on people with physic abilities. Now she is in danger and must escape this place! The graphics are good, hos are junky, but not hard. Some of the cut scenes are blurry but everything else is in character to the story.The curser is tricky as you have to be right on the item.
Did I mention the curser turns into a BIG eye?(ugly eye). I guess you know when you find something you need! I like paranormal games and find this an intrigueing one!!

?20Th Century Dumpster? Art
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Don?t get me wrong, the ART is GOOD, well, reasonably good, but the game has got to be the UGLIEST I?ve ever played. Keywords for it would be RUST, BLOOD & GRUNGE.
The GAMEPLAY is quite OKAY, if the artwork doesn?t put you off. PRIMARILY a HO GAME, the FREQUENCY & DIFFICULTY of the PUZZLES INCREASE as you progress.
The HO SCENES are STATIC, NON-INTERACTIVE LISTS, which are visited TWICE. The lists are RANDOM GENERATED, so often you are asked to find the same items as the first time. As well, some items are given two different names (for example: metal cup 1st time vs. tea cup holder 2nd time).
The AMBIENT SOUND was screams, cries and some pretty scary MUSIC. No VOICEOVERS.
The STORY is the familiar ESCAPE THE ASYLUM one, with the TWIST of having PARANORMAL ABILITIES & other patients to RESCUE as well.
There is a MODERATELY USEFUL DIARY, but NO MAP. HINT actually gives you ONLY a hint, and can be very frustrating because of that!
For me the only really outstanding thing about this game was the "ANGEL", who turns up every now and then, complete with straightjacket, to provide some useful guidance. She is really well depicted and is great symbolism. She'd make a nice signature item for a series.
Despite my lukewarm response to it, it must be noted I had no trouble finishing the game, it HELD my INTEREST all the way TO THE END.
