Written Legends: Nightmare at Sea
Definitely NOT a Nightmare!!
I had seen the preview for this game before and waited several months for it and was most definitely not disappointed. Almost all of the game takes place under water in this surreal and utterly cool landscape. You meet interesting characters, solve challenging puzzles and play beautiful and 'do-able' H/O scenes. I've played it several times already and will continue to play it off and on. My only complaint about this game is that it ended! I would seriously recommend this game for those who love H/O Adventure games!!!! One of my faves!

No nightmare just a great game
Is was a fun game to play. Some moving around finding clues but keep going to solve the areas needed to go on. Nice story. This was a good game to play that is not hard and keeps your interest thru out the game. You will play it more than once.

One of the Best
I loved this game. Great storyline. Puzzles weren't too difficult & I particularly like the interaction with the characters to get information as to what to do next. The underwater scenery is beautifully done. Everything, including the H O scenes is easily seen & not too dark at all. I found the music in some scenes haunting yet peaceful as you make your way around the ocean floor. Definitely one of the better H O games in my opinion. Provides a reasonable level of challenge. Not too easy but not too hard either.

Yo Ho Ho and a Barrel of Fun!
This game had just the right amount of challenge for me. I think it has a great story, and the graphics are just right for a swashbuckling, undersea adventure! There are interesting characters to interact with and although I did wish they could speak for themselves, the written dialogue provides enough drama. Make sure to read all the threats and advice offered by your ghostly foes and mates! There is a journal with a handy map and a clue section to keep you on track and your tasks and travels are pretty clear. The inventory gets to be quite large at times but be patient, there is a time and a place for everything. Set sail and enjoy this great hidden object and puzzle adventure!

An underwater adventure
I love games that are under the sea! The sceenery is colorful and the graphics look exceptional. Your character needs to talk to the other characters in the game to get hints and find out where to go next. There is a lot of backtracking and wandering around but the game has directional hints available to aid you if needed. This game was so much fun and i really enjoyed it!

lots of fun to play
A free map is included with this SE, and it highlights areas which lead you to the next step so it's very helpful! The map and subtle sparkles took a lot of the stress out of the game and eliminated the need for hints.
The underwater graphics were beautiful. I didn't mind the characters repeating themselves, and the helpful "lost souls" added a feeling of community to the game.
HO scenes were delightfully simple, even if objects were replaced on subsequent visits.
A minor complaint, some of the adventure tasks required items that I had already used, gloves, an axe, a wrench, but I had to go find new ones again. Tasks could have benefited from a little more imagination, or at least let us use more the similar items over again. The pesky octopus was a cute addition though.
The adventure itself was nice, I enjoyed the storyline even if I've heard similar ones before, and the tasks made logical sense so there was a feeling of accomplishment after completing something.

Very good game
I like games that are good enough to play over and over. This one fits the bill. It's got a great storyline, and the puzzles are varied and challenging. I rated the graphics lower because of the grimy junk piles and HOS scenes.

Up until the very last part of the game, I really thought this was about the best game I've ever played. Everything worked and the Notes, Clues, and Map made it really easy to figure out where I was and where I needed to be. The mini games were not too hard and neither were the HOS. I rarely had to use the hint button, and only at the very end did I need to check out the walk through. I pretty much played it in one sitting, which may explain why, by the end of the game, I was not thinking as sharply as I should have been. When I have to refer to the walk through to figure out the next step, then my opinion of the game goes down a little. I hate not being able to figure out where to go to play the next HOS or puzzles. It's one thing to be unable to solve a puzzle or figure out how to use an inventory item and a whole other issue not knowing where to go to play next. The latter issue just drives me crazy.
The storyline was great and the graphics very good. I never play with sound, so cannot comment on that area. All in all, an excellent game.

Written Legends:Nightmare at Sea has intense characters to interact with, a Pirate you'll LOVE to HATE and games that challenge you to the edge of your intuition ... but not beyond. The game area is complex but still not enough to get you "lost" and the hiding places are MANY, which makes the whole puzzle extremely entertaining! Watch out for the pearls, though - If you miss even one, you're SUNK (as it were). Best game I've tried and purchased so far. Ahoy!
