Twilight Phenomena: The Lodgers of House 13
I loved the story line and the general idea of the game play but would have enjoyed a bit better programming all together. I found myself really wanting to play it as a click and go adventure game. I found the screens a bit tiresome, almost like a text MMO.
Just a little more quality and I would have gone for it. It is still fun and I could have played longer but didn't want to waste money on a game that someone just seemed to throw out there and see what reaction it gets.

Not worth the money
I played the demo, and was happy to uninstall it. Poor story line, way too easy - I mean, there wasn't any challenge at all, and I like a challenge, something to keep me on my toes and interested. Lots of mini games, but again, way too easy.
The game was boring. I won't be wasting my money on it.

Boring game, weak ending
This game looked promising during the trial, but ended up being pretty boring. No HOS, just find-and-use object seeking and some puzzles. It wasn't challenging at all. Most objects are used within the nearest 2-3 locations, although this certainly reduces running around and backtracking. Story ends abruptly with minimal plot resolution and plenty of loose ends, but it's not worth buying the CE. I wanted to like this one, but just couldn't get into it. :(

What is the point of this game?
My review may be a bit tardy but I felt I ought to write a review of this game. Despite being from the stable that produced Puppet Show, this has to be one of the most insipid, pointless games I have played. Normally, I would play the trial first but I guess, because of the pedigree of the developers, I went ahead and bought it without doing so.
I don't mind the absence of hidden object scenes as I'm not a great fan of them anyway. But the puzzles in this thing are some of the dumbest, most banal that I have seen. This game has absolutely no level of challenge in it whatsoever. You seem to just go round picking up items and then using them elsewhere.
And the storyline! It makes no sense and the body-less heads that you encounter are nothing short of disturbing and add little to the story. It's just dumb, full stop.
I really wouldn't waste my money on this rubbish.
