Bluebeards castle explored Hello all. Well I have just finished playing this wonderful gem and wanted to share why I thought it was so great. Having read and taken in others reviews and opinions I have to say that despite the minus points, this game is worth every penny of the SE price at which it is offered. I found the graphics to be crisp and the hidden object scenes challenging but do-able. There were a couple of "well that didn't look like that" moments but as the game offers silhouettes if you hovver your mouse over the item you wish to find, it was not a problem. The mini games took me a while to work out what I was supposed to do but were not overly difficult. A few times I came close to hitting the skip button only to solve the puzzle there and then. The story was interesting enough if not original & it lends purpose to the object of the game. There were quite a few scenes to explore & these were grouped in "batches" for the most part which meant that although you were moving too & fro, there was not too much back tracking for miles to places you visited a while ago. The only real problem was the lagging between loading times of certain scenes, which I know annoys a lot of people but It was not so slow that I thought the game was hanging. I did feel as if the game rushed a bit towards the end, but it still took me 4 hours to complete in stages. If it offered a couple more chapters and sorted out the loading issues, I would have seriously considered buying it as a CE. Even if it is a "no buy" for you, an hour playing the demo will be well spent. Jojo November 15, 2011
Fun and interesting Hidden Object Game This game is from "Fenda Games", and it's a game to my own heart. The game started out playing in full screen, but I got a black screen for several seconds, before the loading percentage appeared. Got me worried there for a moment. All through the game, when changing from scene to scene, there is an old-fashioned loading time in between each scene. The graphics are very well done. Gameplay is fun and interesting, and the puzzles are unique and really enjoyable. I declicked the custom cursor but it was still there. However, it is small and nice-looking, and doesn't intrude. There is no voice-over, and the music is rather nice. There is only one play mode, which has sparkles. The Hidden Object Scenes have crisp and clean graphics, and object are not hard to find. The game doesn't give widescreen. When clicking on "Play", the Game Manager first closes down, before the game starts, but comes back after exiting the game. So no worries... This is a keeper for me. One of the few games I have bought lately that I really enjoy playing. November 12, 2011
Excellent Adventure Game!! I've never played a game with this much time and effort included in making the game a true adventure before. I've always found the majority of games too easy, predictable, and boring after the first hour. This game exceeds all expectations... just when you think you're not going to be able to solve the puzzle, you found a well hidden clue to continue on. I truly loved this game! I completed it in just under 4 hours, but I took small breaks for telephone calls, etc. Highly recommend!! November 15, 2011
Great Deal! I bought this game after playing the trial, well worth the 6.99! Hidden Object scenes and puzzles just challenging enough. The game is a little slow loading, but didn't freeze up on me, and no other issues noted. Great buy! November 14, 2011
Excellent Hidden Object Game Purchased this game yesterday & couldn't take a break from it. Beautiful graphics, intense game play, nice HOS. More like a Collectors Edition. November 14, 2011
More like this please... This game was such a pleasure to play. The atmosphere and settings manage to stay eerie without being dark or creepy and the storyline holds together until the end. The mini-games, while very easy were unique and fun. There is one mini-game played in the waters of a fountain that has a very nicely executed spooky surprise.... Music and graphics were excellent although folks are right - there is a wait to load between screens. It was refreshing to be away from the fairy tale castles, little princesses, pixies, and other cutesy stuff and into something with a more adult setting. No strategy guide needed. The game won't let you go astray and the puzzle answers are easy to find.- Which is really my only criticism. Do the mini-games HAVE to be so easy? Highly recommend. Guys - Next one, please up the anti on mini-game difficulty. Thank you for this one. - A real pleasure to play. February 20, 2012
Beautiful fantasy game After the free trial, I had to buy this game immeadiately! it is a beautifully flowing game. The mini games and hidden object games are just hard enough, and the ending is rewarding. Well worth the money... November 15, 2011
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
A great buy!! Finally, a regular game club game that has collector's edition quality! It was VERY engaging & thought provoking in solving the in game puzzles & the overall mystery of the game. Expect to actually put some time into this game because it will last more than the standard "one night stand". I loved the visual & sound effects, very CRISP & clear. But it did run a little slow on my machine regarding transitions from puzzles & room to room. A great HOG with a good story line. November 16, 2011
Brain Teaser Fun Nice puzzles, a bit unusual. The visuals are a bit dark, but the art work is excellent. Story line is easy to follow. I liked very much. You think it is going to have the expected ending, but no, not really. Just play to see what it is about. Lots of fun. November 13, 2011
