Haunted Manor: Queen of Death
haunted manor: queen of death
bought this game after reading good reviews but was disappointed -graphics were okay, story okay, instructions for puzzles not very clear and a lot of going backwards and forwards - got a bit of fed up halfway through the game.

Could be better
This game is good, not the best though.
-Storyline was not the best. I found it odd and depressing to have a child saving souls of her family and witnessing her family's death (mother, father, nanny, and somewhat evil sister all died right in front of her).
-Graphics are good, but weren't excellent. They werent as "sharp" as other games. No speaking, you have to read the dialogue which is one thing I didn't like. It made it boring.
-HOS were easy; not cluttered. Puzzles were also very easy, hardly challenging.
-No map; you had to keep going back and forth which became annoying after awhile.
-Hint button refills very slowly. I had to use it to know where to go next. It doesnt use your hint when you use to go from one area to another, but hint is used and has to refill when you are in the same room a task needs to be done. One thing I did notice was most of the time the hint would direct you using arrows, but other times instead of arrows, at the top of screen it tells you that you need to go somewhere else, but wont tell where.
-Skip button fills up pretty quickly, although you dont need the skip because the puzzles were very easy.
I recommend this game to those who like easy HOS and easy puzzles. If you want more of a challenge, go for something else.

I tend to have a brain that forgets things quite quickly, so if your good a remebering stuff you will probably enjoy this game. I liked the hidden object and puzzled element, but I do struggle to keep track of where I need to go next. No problem if you use the hint button (and it recharges quickly), so I was enjoying the game. But after a while, the hint would just say 'you need to look somewhere else'. I know that. Thats why I used the hint! After wasting a long time going from one place to another, I gave up and deleted the game without completing it.

Lots of running around...
This was an interesting game, but there wasn't a whole lot of interaction with other characters, and it really could've used a location map. There was a lot of running from one location to another, back and forth, and I find that a bit boring and frustrating. A map would've helped a LOT. However, the HO scenes were challenging, puzzles were good, graphics were nice. Just a bit long and tedious without a mapping feature...

Art style in this game is good, story is interesting but the puzzles become a minus after the trial. The music and atmosphere are wonderfuly creepy but the tension wears off before the middle of the game and the puzzles turn from clever to irritating. As soon as you think your (finally!) at the end you learn you have to go through 12 more HOS, ARGH!!!! All this back and forth traveling starts to wear on your nerves as well. The SE version is best if you want to give it a try.

Definately a beginner level game. Only one difficulty level, and that is very easy. Not only sparkles, but the bright flash of light that shows you the next step, often before you even have a chance to think about it, or try any other path. Boring. Graphics good. Would recommend for beginner or someone who just wants to run through a game without thinking. Some people like to play that way sometimes.

Graphics dull and not challenging
The graphics are bland and HOS objects are the same color as the scene. There is not an expert mode so all scenes have sparkles and interactive items are highlighted. I prefer a more challenging game.

don't waste your time
The only good thing about this game was the graphics...they were very well done. Too much having to revisit the same places over and over and over again...plus many of the mini game controls were click only..very time consuming on puzzles that weren't difficult to solve.
I am sorry I wasted a punch card credit.

Not a Fav.
I really did not like this game at all. I had high hopes for it but really it bored me. There really was not anything exciting about it. The graphic where very good but the story line was nothing special. I only played the demo so I only played it for a about 30 mins and the deleted it.
