Well...Just WOW Well, hot diggity (since I can't use the other "d" word, you know "dangity") lol. This is based on the completed game. First and foremost, I disagree with allll the reviewers who said they finished the game in 4 hours or in just under 4 hours. I played this game ALL DAY LONG! The gist of the are Emily. Your sister, Clarice, has married a blackheart whose past 7 wives have all died under mysterious conditions. What would cause her to marry such a man? Everyone knew of the 7 dead wives....ah, well, love as they say, is blind. You haven't heard from your sister in a very long time and fear the worst so off you go to search for her...and search for her you do. This is not a typical hidden object game. Nor do I feel it is a typical adventure game. There are HOGs aplenty and mini games - not that I found either terribly dark or difficult. The entire ambiance of the game is dark and spooky so why would you expect the HOGs to be anything but? Music? Sorry, I'm a grandma and learned to tune out things a l-o-n-g time ago. You will not be handheld for this game as we are so many games today. There is no map, jumpable or otherwise - none. There is no diary or journal that will keep you updated on whatever they generally do and, more importantly, nothing to make a note of your clues, codes, etc. There is no compass - nothing pointing you in any given direction. The "info" button only tells you what room you're in. Yeah. The hint button is more useless than useful and takes a while to recharge - however, since there are no achievements, feel free to hint away in the HOGs - although there is a penalty for over-clicking. There is also no pet, friend, animal or fuzzy little creature for you to name that will help you. Are you getting it??? THERE IS NO HELP FOR YOU IN THIS GAME - you are on your own, except for obscure clues found here and thereabouts - look closely and remember. You may do something that you KNOW you are supposed to be doing and it just isn't working. You may get an annoying message stating "the devil is in the details" - well, what the frack is that supposed to mean? Do I need something? Do I need to come back? What???? Hah, I had to figure it out will too. There is a LOT of back and forth, and forth and back, and back and forth and, oh, if I were really doing all that walking I would have rested a million times. There are also your inventory items that you receive NOT just for completion of an HOG. There are items you will use right away, items you know what to do with and items that won't be used for a millennium (well, it felt like a millennium). One tidbit I can share with you which is not a spoiler.....when you are finished with an area/room/whatever, you.....will....unequivocally.....know. That's not saying you will know what to do next, as you will probably get the following answer to your hint click - "search through Blackbeard's castle and grounds" - yeah, thanks. As I said, not a very helpful hint button. It took me a while to get the know-how of how to play this game because I am also spoiled by the handholding games of today. But once I figured it out, a lightbulb lit my entire neighborhood with its brightness and I was like, doh. Saying that, had the lighbulb glared earlier in the game I would not have progressed any faster than I did. Not helpful, huh? Sorry. You will work VERY HARD to get through this game. You will not get a "bam" ending. You will work very hard until the very last millisecond of this game. But, every piece of the puzzle realized will have you feeling so overwhelmed with accomplishment you will not want to stop playing. You need to use your brain (on full awareness mode) throughout this game. Therefore, I DO NOT recommend this for beginners. I purchased this game as part of a "bundle" offering and based on the "great" reviews. Not sure I'll do that again. Everyone talked about how great the game is - it is that. No one talked about how different the gameplay was or how difficult it could be, even on the easiest setting. I loved this game almost from the beginning and definitely to the end. Obviously - as it is now 1:30 am on Mother's Day and I've been at it f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I would love to have more games like this available. I had to think and plan my moves. But once in the groove, there was no stopping me - lol. Do you find your sister? Is this a prequel to a sequel? Is the ending everything I had hoped it would be and fireworks are exploding with the wonderfulness of it? Not saying. Just remember, this is Blackbeard and you are entering his castle and you have not been invited. This Glam-ma says try the demo, although I'm not sure you will get a true taste of the game in an hour. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the entire game. May 11, 2014
MY FAVORITES!!! LOVED THIS GAME!!! It was fun and I purchased it !!! The graphics are awesome...I recently bought a 27" monitor.....the game play is out of bounds !!! I absolutely recommend this game ! November 14, 2011
Amazing game! This game is great! The decoration reminds me the movie Sleepy Hollow, and the story brought me back to childhood to my favorite fairy tale of Bluebeard. I also liked that the game is not difficult to pass. November 12, 2011
Bluebeard's Castle Bluebeard had married your sister and she fears that Bluebeard's previous wives are locked in a room she has been forbidden to see (thats an open invitation in my opinion) Now you are searching this mysterious castle for your missing sister, is it too late? I must admit that I played the newest Bluebeard:Son of Heartless first, and enjoyed the game so much that I had to go back to the beginning, and I love this game just as much! There are so many mini games and hidden object games to play, one after another. The hidden object scenes are a mixture of "find 15 hat pins" and hidden list finds. When you click on the listed word such as butterfly, a silhouetted shape of the butterfly you are looking for is displayed on the hint icon, if you click on the hint itself it will show you where this item is hidden. There are a ton of mini games and puzzles, most require you to find all the missing pieces throughout the castle before playing the game. There are simple puzzles like putting mirror fragments together or placing 7 Nymphs into their correct places on a serpent fountain, if you click on the serpents head an outline will appear to help you figure out which Nymph goes where. This is a simple game with a good story and plenty of entertainment, enjoy! April 5, 2014
Love this game! This game has everything enjoy in my favorite type of game (Hidden Object); The story line is dark, the scenes' art is dark, eerie and well drawn, giving a creepiness to the scenes (I love gothic old buildings, cemetaries, tombs, with spirits). There were a lot of clues to find and puzzles to solve..I did have to refer to the Walkthrough sometimes to figure out what to do next, as the hints don't give you details in the Casual mode. All in all; this game was lots of fun and I certainly recommend it...It plays like a Collecters's Edition, but only costs the same as a regular one. May 8, 2012
Delightful Surprise! I wasn't sure I was going to want to buy this game when I downloaded the trial. By the time I'd got to the end of my hour I couldn't hit "Buy" fast enough! The graphics are rich and clear, the music and storyline are as good as one can expect, but the gameplay is just sheer fun. There is some moving around back and forth, but it's not overdone and usually it's just within a certain area. One doesn't have to troop all the way back to the beginning scene to pick up one stray object after going through six other scenes! The puzzles are similar to others but not so similar that you can complete them with your eyes closed. Some of them took me a while to work out (the instructions are not always too good on these mini-games) but that did not detract from the interest or desire to solve the puzzle. I don't want a game to be like an unbreakable cipher, but I want a challenge if I'm going to spend money on a game. This game is definitely worth buying. Enjoy! April 9, 2012
Bluebeard's Castle Top quality in every aspect to me! Bluebeard's Castle presents a challenge but with a twist that makes the puzzles cleverly interesting. I would love a new game like this every day! Excellent and colorful scenes. Very clever game so far. November 12, 2011
Fun hidden object game Like the puzzle challenges and story line. Waiting between scenes took a little too long, but overall enjoyed playing. Lots of hidden objects to find in different areas. Music and sound too repetitive, needs variety. Look forward to a sequel. November 15, 2011
Great hidden object game This game was one of the best I have played for ages ,lots of puzzles and not too many hidden objects which made it very enjoyable .... November 15, 2011
Great hidden object game. The game was great, but the brightness on the scenes need to be better. For the most part of the game I had to turn up my brightness on my screen to be able to see the rooms I was in. November 12, 2011
