Twilight Phenomena: The Lodgers of House 13
Good game and not that hard
ERS has changed there format somewhat in this game. I still think it interesting and fun t play.
Has voice over and the music and graphics are nice.
I have just played the demo and will buy it. The game seemed pretty easy to me and yes there were no HOS so far. That does not bother me. I like adventure games.
Some puzzles are hard and some are easy.
The hint button does not tell you where to go just that there is nothing in that seen.
Thought is was fun and did not take you all over the place to find clues. Pretty straight forward and I like that.

Great fun!! Keep your head on the shoulders....
Played and reviewed already the CE version. I highly recommend to purchase this version, as there are no mentionable extras in the CE as collectables or achievments.
This is one more great game from ERS! Graphics and storyline are outstanding! Very good voiceover. Lots of unique, more or less challenging minigames. 3 modes to play. A very detailed journal, but no map... And I loved the hologram cat, which interacts with other creatures if needed.
Yes, I do recommend this one!!

Good puzzle game!
This is not a HOG! But it's full of puzzles. The graphics are great, as usual for ERS. There are 3 game modes.
The mini-games are easy. The diary is helpful. There is no map, but the game is pretty linear, so it's not a problem.
The hint system is like "nothing to do here".
The game is rather short; without skipping, I needed a bit more than 2 hours to finish.

you shall be addicted.
Not a perfect game, yet managed to totally grab my attention.
It has a spooky and great OST. It has some beautiful hand drawn places and objects, with the right atmosphere (sometimes, retro, as intended to be). The cat hologram is a fresh and lovely touch (really, more games with this cat are needed). The plot has some flaws but it's still interesting and tense enough to try to find what will happen next.
The flaws: I would love to have meet some more strange characters (there was a delightful Tree and I still do not know if it was supposed to be a character or not but had the potential). The game felt somewhat incomplete without them, to me. The puzzles were too easy and obvious, so not really a challenge.
Fast but entertaining game, nevertheless.

No HOS, Lots of Fun
I had a blast playing this game. It had a twisted story which I love. Immediately after you sign your lease for a room, things go from strange to bizarre. Now you want to leave but you're alone and locked in...and you're off! The graphics were good, typical ERS. But one of the nicest parts for me was no HOS. I like them, but sometimes they dominate a game and I honestly did not miss them here. Puzzles were plentiful,easy and I finished them all (not normal for me). Not having a map was fine as items were often used soon after being found and the usual back and forth was limited. And I can't forget the cat hologram that helped with some of those hard to get objects. Granted this game was not the most challenging but it sure was fun.

This Is Not A HO Game! Not Even in the CE
Though I really liked the story line, and the detached heads in jars, muhahha, I was very disappointed there were not any HO scenes in this game.
The puzzles were interesting but I found them to be too easy for me. I played this game on the second choice because I don't like to have sparkles show me where things are in games, but may need a hint now and then, and it was just too easy.
An enjoyable game, but the extra bonus did not include extra game play unless I missed it. And to be honest if there was anymore bonus gameplay in the bonus of the CE, I probably would have skipped it anyway.
A good game, since everything is almost in a linear Adventure type format, but I thought it would contain HO scenes and so I gave it a four because it didn't.

Very nice adventure game
I was very happy to find an adventure game and not a boring HO game as there are so many (I personally don't like to look for lists of objects). I loved the different puzzles and situations to solve even if they were a bit too easy for me.

Not the same ole HOG!
This is a great game. The game moves quickly enough that you don't get bored and there are plenty of mini games. You get to constantly interact with the environment so you're not just staring at one HOG scene after another. I was disappointed in the abrupt ending, but still think this is a great buy. Storyline is weirdly different which I also liked!

Good, Solid Game
This game is colorful and good-looking throughout with an interesting, if predictable, storyline. The puzzles are enjoyable. There is a bit of "running around" and the ending is abrupt. The SE is worth the price.

excellent for challenge in my opinion
this game was harder than most of the games i have been playing lately. i had to cheat quite often. i missed the things i needed to do. i played casual and the hints/skips took a little longer to charge than some of the others. not ridiculously longer in casual just longer than the others i have been playing. the game is about a mad scientist that uses people's heads to become more intelligent. you come across these and it is sort of creepy. graphics were good and i didn't use sound.
