Mountain Trap: The Manor of Memories
Quite a few cut scenes
Sometimes a bit like watching a movie. The demo also tried to make me watch more when I was done the small trial. Had to use Windows desktop to make it stop.

Don't Let It Adjust Your Settings !!!
I ended up having to do a system restore to fix my settings. It didn't only adjust brightness. Fail.
The bland and emotionless voice over of the main character was a bit "off". I enjoyed my trial hour but I wasn't compelled to purchase the game to finish it. Mild sauce. No Zing.

All in all this is an okay game. Trouble with it for me was the tons of backtracking, and because of this you may forget where to place some items. There is no map to help ease this.. The storyline Is ok, and so is the graphics. The HOS are clear, and not too many of them. Some of the HOS are interactive, and some are done where they show you the outline and you must find the item by this, which I like. The puzzles are as expected, and not difficult at all. There is nothing too blah about this, and def. nothing to make you say, " why did I buy this?" Its a nice game, but def. to buy in SE. Happy gaming gamers!!

Trapped in the Mountain!
This game was just okay in my opinion. There were too many illogical steps. For example, there is a drawer that you need to open by pulling some nails...you go through three hammers and a crowbar before you get the right tool to pull them. There weren't enough clues...you have to travel all over the place to find the things you need...if you find something in one room you might have to go to the other side of the house to find the hidden object section that you set off. All this being said, I will probably buy the next part of the story, just to see where it's leading. Not the greatest game, but an okay one.

Mountain Trap the Manor of memories or should we say the mountain of boredom
this is the slowest game I have ever played, searching for your lost friend, the storyline is ok, but the actions in the play are so slooooow, it takes an age for the hint button to fill up and I have found that it has been needed , but the whole game is slow enough to put you to sleep, time taken for the item found to get into the collection slot, is slow, I found no problems with the graphics or the brightness, and I suppose if you want to relax to the point of sleep, this is the game for you, I think we have been spoilt with the newer more active games that are now coming out sorry people but I went against the other reviews preferring to make up my own mind , so if you want to do the same go for it, but the music may hypnotise you very boring music, it is worth a shot for a beginner for that reason only I will recommed the game.

Mountain of Trouble
Beginning of game the cursor would not change into a magnifying glass or hand to find items. Sourly had to click on everything to see if I could pick it up or get a close up. Once beyond the car the cursor worked fine. I had to up the brightness on the game to see the HO's which were okay. Two kinds not real hard.
When done with the game it made the brightness ghost like on the computer desk top and on the internet and could not get the computer back to normal so had to reboot to get rid of that problem. Past games were you control the brightness it only brightens the game and not everything else in the computer.
Hated that the voice over sounded like it was done in a bathroom instead of outside in the snow.
The graphics were great and the scenes fairly nice. Wish always for bigger music selection and interaction with critters moving about during game and HO's This game felt like it was just thrown together. The story line was good and wish going into rooms felt like a nice size room instead everything felt like a closet and junked up closets. Going into a room felt like a HO scene without it being a HO.
Hopefully they take more time with the Collector to work out the kinks because they had a great idea, but failed short of themselves.

Very slow and just blah!
I don't know this dev, so don't know if they are new or what. Graphics were old school and game play was nice. HOGs a bit junky. Sound okay. Games very simple. Hint system may be fast recovery, but not helpful...don't just tell me to look somewhere else, at least point me in the general direction. Music okay.
Voice overs just sounded like someone reading a line with no urgency or fear or whatever the scene called for. Very blah.
This game looked like something from 2-3 years ago and was not challenging at all. A beginner would like this game, except that there is a tremendous amount of unnecessary running back and forth.
This game did not make me want more when the demo ended, so it will not be a buy for me.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find it quite enjoyable. Thanks for the reviews.

Slow, easy and outdated
This game is just not good enough.
Annoyingly slow movements so even thoug it is easy it takes forever to do things.
There is a journal but no map - but you don't need either, as you just keep getting a 3-scene location and you just go back and forth between those 3 locations untill you have found what you need to solve the easy tasks.
The HOS came close to nice and had both variation and mild interaction, but as the storyline along with the slow, slow movement seemed quite dull, it didn't really do enough to make it a good game.
And as the gameplay at the same time seemed so outdated compared to all the good games BF provide..... this game is just a no-go for me.
Anyone just a little experienced would find this one too easy - but who knows.... someone might need a filler :-)

One For The DD List
BASED ON DEMO
Story: You?re alone in a foreign snow-bound country, you friend has disappeared, and the only thing for you to do seems to try to reach the mysterious mansion, Manor Ardennes.
Release Date: Feb 2013
Extras: Teddy bears? Did someone mention teddy bears?
It took me precisely one hour to complete the first chapter, which looks promising for the length of the game, as there are 7 chapters in all. The emphasis is on HOs, of which there are many. I have no problem with that ? I like lots of HOs.
The difficulty I have in liking this game is the weather. That wind is already driving me nuts!
Seriously, I found I had no idea what to do next way too often for my tastes, and the game seemed to go very slow for me, perhaps for that reason. But, an hour and I still haven?t even started on my rescue mission?
I won?t rush to buy this one, but I might be grateful for a few snow scenes come our (downunder) summer, and am intrigued by teddy bear comments of another reviewer, so it maybe goes on my Daily Deals list.

This game is the slowest, one-at-time game I have ever owned. It's hint system is the worst. Nothing is intuitive.
