Haunted Halls: Revenge of Doctor Blackmore
I'm sorry I bought it, really. Why?
- The story is a bit stupid and not very funded on any deeper-going psychology; it's just this villain again, being obnoxious all the time, and you having to rescue four people before you can rescue your boyfriend.
- All the characters are very flat, nothing interesting there. Even the boyfriend doesn't have much more to say than 'the case isn't full yet" every time you return with another magic ball, and dr. Blackmore just keeps repeating himself.
- The graphics are a bit cartoon-like, they're OK I guess, but certainly not the best I've seen, and not one new scene I entered made me say 'o wow!'. It's all depressing, untidy and uncomfortable.
- Puzzles aren't really hard. Some kinds of puzzles keep returning (annoyingly enough) like the meters all to be set at the right values. The travelling laboratory is fun for one ore two times, but then I'm done with it.
So sorry guys - this game was just too easily made, and I'm not impressed.

After reading some of the other reviews, I was surprised that this game wasn't more fun. All I can say is that I was thankful there was a walkthrough. The hint button was very slow and I think beginners would become frustrated.

Played this game by running between the walkthrough and the game. When I played the trial hour, I could play with just the hint button. So I bought it. Soon as I bought the game, it became much harder. I did not enjoy this game. Someone else might like it but not me.

First time to review a game.
This game was so disappointing. The first hour (as is the trial play) was ERS quality as expected. From there this game went downhill. The storyline was OK, but the artwork was dull, flat and uninteresting. I finished the game, but it is a "groaner."
