Haunted Legends: The Undertaker
Adventure Game: More of the Demon SG
This Adventure game would be perfect for Halloween. The music is repetitive, the puzzles are easy to moderately difficult, the hints point to objects or tasks in the scene, the vocals are melodramatic. In casual mode, the game is fairly easy. SG, a temperamental little demon with a big head, likes to cause all kinds of mayhem, especially killing, and other gruesome acts. This time, when an undertaker doesn't follow through on a deal, SG causes all the corpses [that the undertaker buried] to rise at night, and walk through the town, growling and making threatening gestures. SG has another mysterious motive for making the undead rise, besides harassing the undertaker. I recommend this game for people who like games about the undead.

Ending in CE? Geez...
My main reason for only 1 star is that I was very disappointed in the abrupt and incomplete ending of the SE version of Haunted Legends: The Undertaker. I would have given this game a higher rating except for having the true ending in the CE and not this version. Any developer who does this is short-changing gamers who either can't afford or don't want the extra bonus content.
My other complaints:
o long hint & skip recharge rates. If I want to skip a puzzle, I want to skip it NOW... not wait for what the developer thinks is an appropriate time to try to solve the puzzle.
o having to OK inventory items. It's bad enough when items do not automatically go into inventory but having to click a specific spot to do that is a pain. Would be much better to click anywhere on the screen.
o puzzles were all over the map... extremely easy to painfully time-consuming. I guess that's better than all of one or the other but I found myself waiting time and again for the SKIP to recharge.
Definitely try before you buy and understand that you won't be getting the complete story if you buy this version.
