Curse at Twilight: Thief of Souls
This game started out a little tedious but after you get the hang of the map it turned out to be great. Lasted about 10 hours at least . Really liked it.

eerie and suspenseful with beautiful settings, really did enjoy this game, the only thing that marked it down was the story, although good i like my ghostly mysteries to be real and this storyline didn't quite get me, but well worth playing if like me you love haunted mansions and castles :)

CREATIVE, ENGAGING, SOME NEW TWISTS
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME ON ADVANCED MODE W/O HINTS
WISH I COULD GIVE 4.5
THE GOOD STUFF:
New twist on good vs evil story that will hold your interest
Smart games, some I've never played before
New twist on finding objects (you have to find their pieces too)
Game advances logically, quickly and neatly
"Chapters" of doors which you need to unlock (cool!)
Collect coins to "earn" hints
Boxes at top tell you what you have left to do in each scene
Music and voice overs are nicely done
Nothing too gory, dark or scary
Each door/chapter takes you to a very interesting place
Items are easy to find with a few sly ones to give you a challenge
Items are used in sensible timely manner
You know when you're finished with a chapter because of the boxes at the top (I love this feature)
Enough twists and turns to keep all levels of players happy
Very little backtracking......a huge plus in my book!
Leaves the door open for sequel (yes!)
MY TINY COMPLAINTS:
The voice overs kind of stopped in the middle of the game
Graphics could be cleaner and "humans" more realistic
Game could have been more challenging
One scene indicates that you have one more task to do, but you don't (cow scene)

Great Variety of type of hidden object in game
I liked how you had the hidden objects but also the join the pieces to make an object you need. Also more adventure than hidden object in my opinion. A little difficult in some spots and had to use hint. However I am not one to let that spoil my fun. A very long game and worth the money!

This one ticks all the boxes. Great graphics, easy to navigate (with a handy map that takes you straight to wherever you want to go), interesting tasks, fun games, generous length... and now I'm salivating for the sequel!
Only needed the walk-through at the very end, where you have to do a little back-tracking. Otherwise, the scenes are sectioned off a main hallway and you mostly concentrate on those areas one at time.
Definitely an excellent SE.

Glad I got this one
Enjoyed the story line and the scenes. I was able to turn the bright up on the background but I think that is why I wasn't able to find some objects in a puzzle or two. I would have given the visual another star because it was better than 3 but some of the sounds an voices were kind of irritating. I am super picky about sound though. This was a nice balance of HOS and puzzles. I like having more puzzles than HOS as a general rule. This was perfect for me.

Different but Very Fun!
I just finished this game and found myself pleasantly surprised by it. I was expecting another adventure/HO game, and it was that, but had elements in it to set it apart from some of the others I've played.
I loved the map system, and finding the coins to complete the map made it more interesting. Putting together your inventory items was fun, although it did get a tiny bit old near the end of the game when you know you're close to finishing.
The story was very well done, and definitely left me wanting more soon! The length of the game was very good as well, taking me an entire afternoon of casual play to finish.
All in all a very good buy, well worth the money for the entertainment gained!

It was challenging but was not as cool as some of the hidden object games I've played before

Loved This Game
I really enjoyed this game! Good variety of mini games and some of them were nicely unique...not many hidden object scenes, but a lot of searching for pieces of an item, but I liked that. Nice variety of scenes and mini story lines within the game.. I bought the standard version and thought the game length was just right. Great game =)

Not the Best
This is actually my first review and I was so disappointed in this game that I was compelled to write one.
I have played quite a few HO games in the past 3 years and I have never ran across a game as confusing as this. There is no direction in this game as to use the objects that you may have in inventory, or what to do next. I'm pretty good with puzzles and remembering what tool I would need to complete the objective but this game does not provide that. One puzzle in particular (books in the dungeon) has absolutely nothing to do with the storyline and you wouldn't have even known to do anything if I wasn't moving the mouse around the room to find SOMETHING to move forward.
IMO I think this game was just thrown together and the creators were just thinking of places to throw in some puzzles. It's too bad, I thought that this game had quite the potential but in the end it falls very short
