The Torment of Whitewall
Sweet creepytown mystery
A nice little game that kept me occupied for a few hours. The story was a bit predictable but managed to keep me going because i wanted to see it unfold.
The good stuff:
- Nice storyline
- Atmospheric environment
- Challenging but not too hard
- predictable story - the storyline could have been so much more! At the start of the game there is a small mention of a similar happening 100 years before, but sadly this is left unexplored through the rest of the game. Also, the unfolding plot makes the kidnapper a real villain while this story had the potential to be a little tragic-romantic, even
- graphics are slightly outdated. No trouble for me but if you enjoy good graphic art over a story, you may want to give this a skip.
A lovely little gem of a game. The story could have used some more work, but overall it was a nice play, and i enjoyed it. Thank you!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

The Torment of HO's
This Game is a pure HO with a little bit of Adventure in it.
The story is OK, but who wants to be thrown out of it every two seconds to sit with a junk pile.
I am never going to buy another game from this developer
it was a waste of money.
