The Torment of Whitewall
Not a fan of the graphics but game play is pretty good.

Not Really a Surprise.
Based on completion of the SE in easy mode (there's also normal and hard mode which can be changed during game play.) I liked this game although it was very short.
You're a detective who has been invited by Count Daniel Redway to the island of Whitewall to investigate the disappearance of young ladies who have been kidnapped by an unknown. One of the girls escaped and you are planning to interview her.
This game has it all, nice voice overs, a jump map, and a hint button that works well outside the HOS.
The HOS are easy however you will have to look carefully. The puzzles are all pretty easy and there is a skip button which recharges quickly.
The graphics and music are nice.
I enjoyed the ease of this game. Objects are found and used quickly and I never got lost as where to go or what to do. This may not be enough of a challenge for hard-core gamers but I liked it very much.
Play the demo and read some reviews to make your decision.

sort've enjoyed the game - not hard - smooth progress - a relaxing game with plenty of HOS, which i like...the big "but" is because the game is so short...as in very short. maybe the shortest HOG i've ever played..and the ending was flat.

Not so good.
If you like going to HOS to HOS then this is your game. Graphs were fine , music was fine but ease up on the HOS's. When are the makers of these programs going to wise up and have two or three HOS and lets fine the items we need within the game.

Slow moving, story line is good, graphics are okay, but way too many HOGs. I think I actually would have bought it, if there hadn't been so many. It made me lose sight of what the story was actually about. It crashed on me mid way too, which didn't help.

short but sweet
based on demo: i played on hard and enjoyed it. good story line, journal and jump map. it's not a challenging game and judging from the walk through, about 3 hours in length - for me and i take my time to enjoy it all. i won't be buying it due to the length but if it comes on sale i will.

This was just so-so. I bought it after playing the demo, thinking it had promise. But honestly, I got so bored with it, I just wanted to finish it. Thankfully, it didn't take very long.
I try to look for games with a interesting story that draws you in. This game just followed the same old, tired formula, and there didn't seem to even be very much effort into that.

For younger players/Short
The screens are clear and crisp but seem to be reminiscent of mid 90's graphics. Music is lovely but I found the game to be very easy, no challenge. Played whole game in 4 hours on hard mode.

Story line is good
Story line is good, graphics are okay, but it seems like it was sorta draging and the cursor had to be just so so or it wouldnt click. I really liked the story but just couldnt get into it

I guess I'm spoiled. Played the hour. No trouble with HO'S found them so far. I must play free trial more often before I buy. I have make a lot of bad game buys of late. Hurry Big Fish send the good known ones our way.
