Very nice game
Lovely storyline, enough challenge. Overall a very nice game. After playing the demo version i bought it!

Good game but
I really like this game. I would have rated it higher except the spelling is so atrocious. This game should get an award for its misspellings and misuse of the language. Does anyone check the spelling in the games before they are released?

Just another game
This is a good game. Good graphics, good voice-overs, good HO's crisp and clear, puzzles not that difficult, you just have to use some imagination. Lots of things to do. And I imagine a long play time, because you have to go back and forth. The hint, together with the diary, tasks list and map should suffice to help you navigate.
The con is the storyline, a total deja vu, just another puppet theater with evil lurking around.
I give it 4 stars because I consider it a good entertainment for a hot summer day when you have nothing better to do and the tv programs suck.

Decided to buy within about 35 minutes of the demo... glad I did.. I like the Hidden object scenes that require you to do something to find another object, the others are too easy now

Solid 4 Stars
I played this a while back. I found it to be a lot of fun & a bit different from the other HOPA games.
It is on sale for $2.99 this week and you cannot go wrong for that price!!

Good game, long enough, beautiful scenes
Just finished this game. I've really enjoyed it! The game is quite long and there are great scenes to be discovered and explored.
- scene graphics are quite beautiful and interesting
- storyline is catching enough
- Not too much going back & forth
- Nice minigames and HOS's, though not too difficult
- movie scenes are really blurry
- the posessed man is really not as frightful looking as I think he was meant to be
- Maybe a bit more challenge in the minigames and HOS's would be nice
Over all, I'm not sorry I bought it and I spent quite some time enjoying this game.

good SE but needs some fine tuning of controls
The game is a really good length for a SE, lots of hidden object scenes, pretty easy minigames, lots of places to explore. Like the story and the artwork. If you are looking for creepy this is fairly light, but still fun game, and not too sickeningly fairy tale in graphics.
Very disappointed in the controls, however. The cursor often lags,especially in minigames, and in most gameplay if you don't position your cursor/game piece EXACTLY on the millimeter the game wants it won't work. Very frustrating factor in an otherwise good game, definitely lowered my rating.

Different type game
I'm only playing the demo and am enjoying it. It's different than the usual HOG. You actually get to do something before being thrust into a find object screen. Regarding the hint button, I found it helpful. I'll most likely buy it.

Several Elements Missing
The title and description of this game made it sound rather dark and creepy. And I do like a good supernatural, scary game, so I downloaded this one with great anticipation. I played the demo version for about 40 minutes and decided it wasn't worth continuing. I feel the developers missed the mark on this one. There were no voiceovers and there should have been, because the dialogue was poorly written. There was no ominous music or creepy sound effects to add to the "evil-ness" of the game. Graphics were flat and the shadows looked liked charcoal drawings. As mentioned by others, the cutscenes were blurry and a strain on the eyes. The premise of this game was promising, but the execution fell short.

Have played better
This game was ok, not the greatest game I have played, but not the worst. Hardly any hidden object scenes, and the puzzles are not challenging (a young child can even do it). Storyline could have been much better. Graphics are pretty good, although I did notice some glitches (some things you have to click on more than once to get it).
Mostly you have to keep going backing to different areas to find what you need and where to use items in inventory.
Game seemed more boring than entertaining.
I would recommend this game to those who dont want a challenge, otherwise go for something else.
