Written Legends: Nightmare at Sea
The graphics were great. The puzzles were challenging but not so hard that they couldn't be figured out. I loved the audio of the pirates chants when entering his estate, it was a really good addition. It reminded me of Disney-land's Pirates of the Caribbean trip. There were different mini games also that I thought were a nice touch.

I was entertained for several hours playing Written Legends: Nightmare at Sea. The graphics, the music, the story were superb! I love the fact that it has hints so if I'm stock in something I don't have to leave my game to find the walkthrough in a website. The objects were somehow easy to find. I love to play without stress and this game gave me a relaxing sensation after a hectic week of work.

The Malevolence of Davy Jones
With the lure of a 50% off sale and being a pirate fan, I chose to give the trial version of this game a try. I was so engrossed by the game that it was a complete shock when my hour ran out. It will definitely be worth the price to continue and finish the game.
Some of the music was eerily similar to POTCO which I've played for many years. The rest was calming and appropriate for an underwater adventure. I appreciated the lack of voice-overs while interacting with characters. I prefer to read the text at my own pace.
The task log and map are very helpful. However, I did have issues with use of the Hint button outside of HOS. It led me to task completion areas and not to the missing links that I was seeking. There were 6 HOS during the first hour alone. I would rate them as being easy. Nothing is hard to find or hidden slightly off-screen.
The ocean creatures were a welcome touch and I had a giggle at the pilot character being named Janeway. :P

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.

Great Game Except for Glitches
It's a great game. I love the visual effects and puzzles but for some reason whenever I hit the "pause" button and resume the game, it freezes up! I have to exit out of the game and re-enter it to continue playing. Please fix it!

THIS IS A GREAT GAME!!
I loved this game. It is a steal at $2.99. The game had a good story line and there wasn't too much going back and forth to complete tasks. The HOGs were clear as were all graphics, can't say anything about music because I always turn the music off.
The only turn offs were: 1) a lot of reading, 2) not enough HOGs. I would highly recommend this game!!

A Great Game!
This game was the most fun I've had in a while. The story line was great, the puzzles challenging but not too-o-o hard, and it lasted just long enough not to get boring. The graphics were the best I've seen in any game and the sound effects and music were awesome! Best game I've played in a long time!

Davy's Jones Locker
This game is about saving your father and finding out Davy Jones secrets. It is a hidden object game. It takes place under the sea. The graphs are good and sound are good. I was able to figure out what to do without using the hint button to much. I would recommend this game.

Fun and challenging!
Usually I can blaze through these pretty quickly, but this one felt meatier than HOGs normally do. It's also very cool being underwater and seeing whales swimming by or sharks overhead. A very fun game!

Fun, but not too challenging
Loved the story, and the under sea visuals! I would've liked a little more challenge, and occasionally, it was hard to see how some of the tasks progressed the overall goal. But I'm really glad I bought it, and had an awfully good time playing it.
