Curse at Twilight, Thief of Souls Collector's Edition
I've been a member of BF for over a year, and always played HOGs. Kinda got burned out. Switched to Match 3 games, which I've been enjoying. But today I tried Curse at Twilight. I believe I will get this game. It has pieces you have to put together to use to move on in the game. It also has "morphing" type objects. You find coins that earn you hints. There is a penalty for clicking too fast. I did play "casual" mode. I found some objects hard to see, but that's just me. You can turn the screen up brighter. It has a little of everything. Also the coins you earn give you maps to go back to places you've been. I like that. This is a different type HOG and will buy, but right now I want to try Island Tribes 3. Never played that type of game. If you are hooked on HOGs, I think you will like this game. Again, I was bored with them, but this was is different, so a buy for me (later). It is an adventure type/HOG game I guess it's what you would call it. I was tired of strictly HOG. Me and music? I always turn the music down to where I can barely hear it.

Really a 4.5 star game!
What fun this game was! Unique gameplay in the way the bonus content was so integrated that I'm unsure how this game would play out without it. The puzzles were mildly difficult. The HOS were nicely drawn and not too difficult. The FROG portions were difficult to find sometimes as were the coins. I think they could have used a little more definition in areas. The gameplay was really nice and long. I think I played for abou 5.5 hours or maybe less. I lost track of time and became absorbed and even said, "One more area before I go to bed." :) Worth the price of admission!

I Don't Like Fragments!
The music is fine, graphics are great (with a darkness/lightness adjustment at the beginning of the game). Story line is good also.
The hint button will not help you find any fragment of an item that you need to use in the game (i.e. a book or a pair of scissors). You also cannot get any hint from the SG. This is fine if you have bought the game, but if you are trying it out, could use up alot of the alloted time.
Its a pretty good game and I have not gotten it all figured out during the trial (which I usually do). You WILL use your sneakers ALOT...but that's okay. Will definitely purchase this one, if for no other reason, to figure out the mystery/story.

An Average Game with Nice Graphics
The storyline is simple and unoriginal. Your mission: escape a manor in which an evil spirit has trapped you and take Sarah [a ghost] with you.
Just as unsophisticated is the intro, although the voice-over isn't bad and sounds fairly natural.
The in-game music is soft and not unpleasant.
The graphics, though not exactly outstanding, are well drawn and nicely colored.
The game is more an adventure than a HOG as the emphasis is placed on tasks. These are all simple, unimaginative, similar to those you see in many other games such as.... fixing a broken bridge.
Most useful objects come in fragments scattered all over a scene; you need to find them and assemble them. There are not that many per scene and none present any real difficulty.
HO Scenes are few and far between, something much to my liking. They are a bit cluttered but neat enough for you to be able to spot the objects without trouble.
You can collect gold coins [which actually look like copper coins !], 4 per scene. Their purpose ? each set of coins gives you a photo of the location which is then stored on the map. The advantage is that this avoids backtracking as you can navigate from one locale to another just by clicking on the photos. However, collecting them is not compulsory as you can backtrack if you wish.
There is a total number of 28 locations to explore.
Hints recharge fast on the easier Mode and show you what to do next. However indications are a bit blurry so I had to keep my eyes peeled to see where I was being directed.
Puzzles and minigames are unimaginative, too, and not particularly challenging. There's no instruction but they can be skipped. I didn't see a Reset button.
The SG lets you have a glimpse at its 7 Chapters, but the Bonus Chapter is locked. Navigating from page to page is awkward; you have to use a slider at bottom left which does not respond very well.
I also noted that gameplay was not fluid, even jerky at times, which is astonishing for a 125 MB game running on my Quad Core.
And something weird: in order to access the dungeon cell and then the grotto you have to go through....the first floor of the manor ! Huuuuh ???
Playtime seems short as one hour of the demo took me almost to the end of Chapter 2 without rushing and even taking time to sneak peek into the SG to see if the CE was worth it.
This easy game is well suited to younger players or beginners, but may not satisfy seasoned players. In my opinion it is only worth between 3 and 3.5 stars, the CE not interesting enough to justify the extra expense and the SE should be sufficient. I suggest you try the demo and see how you like it. As for me, Curse at Twilight is not enthralling enough to be on my shopping list.

Excellent graphics ... OK game!
Hmm? Well, the graphics are amazing ... the storyline, and game in general, was lacking! The storyline was vague at best. There's no journal, so the story is told by the VERY FEW characters you come across throughout the game, so in my opinion, there wasn't really much of a storyline at all. I mean, I knew what my goal was, but I'm not sure why? There are the 2 typical modes of gameplay, casual and expert. In addition to being able to adjust music and sound volume, you can also adjust the brightness, which was a pretty cool feature. Throughout the game you will see silver, bronze and gold padlocks that can only be unlocked if you are playing the CE. It's just torture if you play the SE, so I HAD to play the CE! I should note that the padlocks throughout the game is the bonus gameplay and that there is not a bonus chapter or bonus game, just the bonus area when you unlock the padlocks. That being said, I wouldn't have purchased the CE if I had known this, but on the other hand, I'm glad I got the CE, because I referred to it often to guide me back to areas I had already been to use inventory items picked up later in the game. I would've been running all over the place if I hadn't had the SG. The SG is okay, but if you're a gamer that relies on the SG to assist in finding objects in the HOS, you will be disappointed with this SG. It is very helpful, as far as telling you which scene/area you need to go back to when you come across an inventory item that belongs in another area/scene, keeps you from going area to area trying to remember and find where an inventory item goes. The SG also assists in solving some of the puzzles, but not all. There is an interactive map that allows you to click on an area you've already been and transport there immediately, which I think is a great feature! The CE also offers soundtracks, concept art and wallpapers. The HOS are interactive and the objects are very cleverly hidden. Also, when you click on items during gameplay you must find the pieces of that item to complete it and then it will be added to your inventory. Some of the pieces you must find to complete the inventory item are extremely hard to find and I spent A LOT of time trying to find one or two pieces of several different inventory items. I found this frustrating at times. The puzzles range from easy to very hard, but I really enjoyed the puzzles. I guess to sum it all up, the storyline was, from what I could gather, pretty lame and lacking, the puzzles were challenging and enjoyable, the HOS were good, finding the pieces to complete inventory items was a great concept, but some of the pieces were too difficult to find, the SG was okay and the bonus gameplay throughout the game wasn't the best. I would much rather have a bonus chapter or game. I hope this review helps other gamers decide whether to purchase the SE or CE, if one decides to play it at all. HAPPY GAMING!! :-D
