Must have The game has great graphics,excellent hints. The games have clear instructions and not so hard they frustrate you.Variety of how you finish the games and variety on hidden object games. Totally fun! January 10, 2013
Another Dark Tale of fun I played the demo and was sad when it ended....I think it might be too easy for some of the more experienced players, but for me it was a good game.....I liked the fact that the HO scenes were not all the same....I hope the rest of the game is a good as the demo because I really enjoyed it.....If you like the other Dark Tales, you will like this one too......I will be buying it to add to my collection......Enjoy gamers...

Dark Tales are excellent Loved this new installment of Dark Tales, as usual it was beautifully drown and animated and fun to play. Looking for more. January 16, 2013
Fantastic Gold Bug!! I was waiting for this game to come out for a while. I played the beta game a few months ago and absolutely enjoyed it. The length of the game was appropriately long. The hidden object games were fun and puzzles of various types was a welcome. The artistry is absolutely beautiful and creative. Thank you ERS folks for another great game. January 13, 2013
AWESOME HO GAME This game had everything! Great storyline, good characters, great graphics and it was just pure fun. I tried the DEMO and now I have to buy it. The hour they give you for the DEMO flys by. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks Big Fish! January 11, 2013
Hidden objedt game I Loved this game I have the other allen poe games and I love this one too I can't wait for another one to come out. January 11, 2013
well done HO game i usually find hidden object games to be boring, but this one offered enough variety to hold my interest. i didn't have the music enabled so won't give feedback about that, but the graphics and sound effects are high quality. finding the correct items to use took adequate time and patience (i played the demo in the easiest mode#. it was neither too challenging, nor frustrating. i won't be buying this game as i don't buy HO games in general #no replay value), but give it high marks for graphics, and for including a variety of mini games.

an excellent game. I have been so disappointed lately with the games , I was very happy to find this one ! January 13, 2013
good game I didn't like this game as much, just because I got stuck a couple times and had to read the walkthrough. I just didn't think the story flowed very well. still a good game in my book November 17, 2013
over all another great game from ERS I enjoyed this game, I am very glad I got the CE because the hint was good but sometimes confusing - especially when I needed to give something to the dog, the CE walk through helped, also since there is no map having the CE was a god send. otherwise I enjoyed the game, this developer seems to be consistently good in my opinion. I don't use sound so can't rate that and I am not big on the extra's, by the time I finish a game I generally want to stop and move on so the extra's are not important to me but over all a great game.
