Secrets of the Dark: Eclipse Mountain
Good adventure, plenty of game time
Good game, lasted for long time. Puzzles varied, some more challenging than others.

Really enjoyed this game and the different types of hos, much better than the other Secrets of the dark which had too much turning lights on and off to change scenes, at least in this it wasn't as often. Love the puzzle parts and putting items into places where they belong rather than just straight hos but only give 4 stars because i kept getting lost! Need a good memory with this game to remember where to go and where to use an item, worth a go, though the hint could of been more helpful.

The game was great. It gave a good challenge. The graphic was great. This game took me 3 days to finish. That's a good game.

Loved the graphics and the changing rooms. With no map, you had to really think but not too much back and forth. Story was interesting even though farfetched. HOS were good but would love more interaction. Puzzles were either tedious (done too many times in other games) or just plain too hard. Overall, fun times.

There is a lot of moving between locations which due to the length of the game becomes very tedious after a time
There are many objects to be found and even when found some of these need an additional object in order to move forward in the game.
Objects found are used further in the game and due to the length of the game you need the memory of an 'elephant'.
To add to needing a good memory and having a good recall of memory is addiitonally complicated by mystic changes of room layout. These rooms have their own hidden objects and puzzles and you often have to switch between the two, as a result there are many locations to explore.
Puzzles vary from easy to hard but are all enjoyable. The hidden objects searches are of three kinds. Find objects by pictures, place objects by pictures and the normal boring one of finding named objects, however the boredom of this is mitigated by the other two.
I bought this game and the earlier Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night and this review would apply equally between the two.

It's getting better
Ok, I played the first one in the series and disliked it because of the excessive backtracking, and this one, sadly is too, there is no map but it is less frustrating to explore. There are more places to go to and you don't have to change the light that often. Graphic is similar to the first game and this time another improvement is that the evil monsters speak.. well, not so creepy still but I do appreciate the dev. effort to put more things that are lacking in the first game. I like that it is set in Thailand. I disliked the ending though, seem like I go through all these troubles just for that?? Hope the third game is better.

this hidden object adventure game takes place in a deserted town in a part of the world i am passionate about. in this game, i am searching for a friend who was kidnapped to be a sacrifice for some dark nefarious purpose and i am being helped along the way by monks that had been turned to stone by the same evil creatures who now hold my friend.
graphics: generally very nice; smooth and well done. however, i was surprised to see what appears to be an african elephant in the thai rainforest.
music and audio: it's appropriate and not annoying.
complaint: i do not like that "change the lighting to change the scene" effect. on one hand, it's a great way to reduce all the clicking around, which this game has too much of already, but on the other hand, it just feels kinda hokey, as if the developers hadn't put much thought into the game design. and in fact, the game felt rather poorly planned out. the fact that it's necessary to visit the same scenes many times made the game a bit boring.
my interaction: one hour demo on casual mode (there's three modes).
although i will not be purchasing this game, i recommend it with reservations -- it's an okay game that is playable, i just think it could have been better designed. but just because i didn't like this game doesn't mean other people will share my opinion.

Left in the dark too much
Eh, found a handle and tried to put it where it said I would need a handle, but it wouldn't take it. There was another spot at the same time that needed a handle as well. Also, too many things to find, get and need all at once and not enough help pointing in the right direction. I guess the makers want us to have to get the strategy guide. Not impressed with that. Beautiful graphics! Great sounds! But I wanted to play and relax. Too frustrating.
