Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts
Great Graphics and Good Variety of Challenges
I really enjoyed this one! It had a well-developed story line, beautiful graphics, and a large variety of puzzles. I also liked that it tells you when an area has cleared so you don't waste time going back to old scenes and searching needlessly. Thumbs-up on that one!

After having played lots of HO and puzzle games my tolerance for wandering around aimlessly is nonexistent. This demo was a lot of fun; it was very fast-paced and kept moving without too much tedious backtracking or wandering around trying to figure out what to do. I may have to buy this one.

This is one of the most intriguing, fascinating and fun Hidden Object game that I have played in a long time. Bravo.

Good game with original twists
This is a good game, with gorgeous atmospheric background - as do the HOS.
Has two twists, one involving moving through mirrors to the shadow realm, where not only you need to find items, but also put them in a place where you can retrieve them later in the real world, and the pictures, where you are supposed to include a missing element, so that they can relase something you need. The pictures, reproduction of beautiful masterpieces add to the atmosphere and the pleasure. It is always good to look at a Vermeer...
The storyline flows easily (the "area clear" messages and the VO help a lot).
A fun game.

Loved the spooky house!
I loved this game although it took me a couple of scenes to really get into it. The setting was spooky and I liked the story line. It was fun switching to the ghost world and seeing the rooms change. Loved it!

A Really Great Game
This was a really interesting and enjoyable game. I loved the well-thought user interface. It was helpful without being in the way; it even told me when I had cleared an area of puzzles. I liked that a lot because I didn't have to waste time searching an area to see if I needed to do anything else. The graphics were lovely, and the music was nice (after you got through the initial screens when the constant lightning and thunder noises were a bit distracting). I will enjoy playing this one again and plan to look for more games by this developer. (GOGII)

A Creepy Trip into the Ghost Realm
This is a fascinating game. You receive a letter from your dead father's lawyer about the house you inherit. You arrive and must solve not only the question of your father's guilt or innocence but what happened to your mother. Free the ghosts that are trapped by an evil spirit by traveling through mirrors to the ghost realm. I really enjoyed this game. The interaction, the puzzles were all very appropriate for the scenes.

I really, really enjoyed this game.
The theme is used brilliantly. Being able to teleport from past to present, and the whole thing involved with that is just great
Absolutely loved the storyline and great voice-overs were included
Pretty good graphics
The game was actually fun to play
Hint and "Solve" buttons recharged quickly and were very helpful
Loved the Hidden Object Scenes. The objects were a mix of easy to find and challenging.
The puzzles. Yes, I know, you're probably sick of me saying this but some of them were excellent, but others were just poor.
At times I had no idea what to do next, so I was waiting for the hint to recharge.
The characters should've been more realistic. I was very aware of the fact I was playing a game #if you know what I mean#
I haven't given a game a perfect rating for a while #I go by number of games, not dates as I review games very frequently# but this game is very deserving of a 5 star rating. Most definitely recommended.
