Not exactly an exciting game! Help the reporter to find the odd inventor who believes that cars have soul! - Graphics somewhat blurry in the cutscenes, not really good VO, but good music. - Two play modes - Dark scenes - Found objects are soon employed - and appears what you should do, even in advanced mode. - HOS interactive, easy - Mini games known, and not challenging I found the game a bit obvious. You do not have to think too hard to accomplish the tasks. Even I do not think the game needs to be very challenging to entertain, this is too easy. Try the free trial and judge for yourself.

MAYBE...MAYBE NOT I am on the fence with this game. I really liked the story and the creepy atmosphere of the whole thing, and it stretched out the time between finding new locations, so you have a lot of fun exploring. The artwork is amazing, but not always in a good way. I have never seen junk piles like this! They ought to get some kind of award for this; they bring new meaning to 'messy'. Even in scenes that are not HOs the junk and mess are incredible. After a bit, I started to feel kind of queasy from the filth of it all... but I've got to admit a lot of work must have gone into making the detailed art. There is a fair mix of HO and puzzles. The only thing is the logic of some of the puzzles is very fuzzy, unless of course I am just dense, which is not out the realm of reality, I admit. I had to skip a couple of the puzzles as I just could not understand the directions or make the leap of logic the devs were looking for. I did like the refilling lists and interactive play in the HOs though. All in all, I recommend trying this game and judging for yourself. February 12, 2013
Grew On Me I was bored at first but it got better as it went along. Regular Hoes and nicely done but nothing too fancy. No morphing images, no interactions with surrounding life, bugs, animals. Leaned toward the element of surprise which perked my interest a little. Music was pretty good. Graphics were good and voice over fairly good. The game has potential but needs to be vamped up. I would get this as a freebee only so I am not sure if recommending it is the right thing. February 14, 2013
Wildly Original Story BASED ON COMPLETED GAME FIRST IMPRESSIONS Despite being a relatively new game, this one looks and feels like a much older. The quality is there, it is just the style that seems older. And the story is freaky! Cars with souls? That?s really out there. SIGHTS & SOUNDS The art is pseudo-realism, which is part of that ?old? feeling. Sometimes the quality could be better, but in the HOP scenes the graphics are clear, colourful and well drawn. Although the scenes are grungy and very junk-piled, the items are clearly visible. The various ghosts look great. Voiceovers are mostly awful. They sound like someone reading a script (yeah, I know they are, but we?re not supposed to notice!). Except for the assistant, who is really excellent. The music is light but suspenseful. The jukebox in the diner seriously impressed me with its ?bobby sox? number. WHAT?S HAPPENING? You are a journalist sent to get an interview with a reclusive inventor who believes he can make cars with souls. You got to admit, full marks for originality! The trouble is, the financial backer just isn?t working out, the disagreements between the reclusive scientist and the ruthless entrepreneur have led to unforeseen catastrophes, and the living have deserted the town. You need to get to the professor, stop the investor, and save the souls of those trapped in town. The ghost of Dr Camping?s assistant offers to help you, and gives you a strange box for storing amulets. GAMEPLAY What you?d expect from a standalone standard edition some time ago. Mainly HOPs, all of which are interactive word lists, visited twice each. The HOP lists don?t show all the items at once. There are not so many puzzles. The adventure components mostly follow common sense, a lot of the mechanical, find the missing bits and repair the engine kind. Items do not stay in inventory long, and it is emptied at the end of each chapter. The hint is directional, a bit slower than most. The journal records codes etc. There is no map, despite the promising document you get early on. The black bar comments tend to be overly helpful, and there are only 2 modes of difficulty. I found the cursor to be annoyingly sensitive in both HOPs are close ups. COMBINED IMPACT An old-fashioned game. Nothing overly noteworthy but pleasant enough if you fancy a change. January 10, 2014
not very special HOG This is not the kind of game I really like. I played demo and Im not sure if Ill buy. You can "walk" trough the scenes but the game doesnt have a map... so, sometimes you dont know you have to come back. During demo, I dont know the rest, scenes are "dark" and dirty. Maybe it changes till the end... Nice mini games and not very difficult. February 13, 2013
A Little Disappointing This game had all the earmarks of being great except that it kept freezing; scenes didn't change when they ought and it just seemed "sluggish" compared to other games. The cursor remained "static" so many times that I had to shut the game down and restart. I think I would have really enjoyed the game except for the technical difficulties July 31, 2013
Am I the only one confused? I kind of liked this game, but honestly I couldn't get a grasp on what was going on. I got lost in all the HOGs - could have done with half which would have kept the story going faster for me. It is dark and dingy but that doesn't make it bad. I never even got out of the back yard. So, it's just an okay for me. February 12, 2013
Glitch spoiled this one for me I would love to have given this game a higher score, because I truly did enjoy the HOS's and the puzzles; however, when I discovered I was missing a candle to conclude the end of the game, I no longer had the ability to find the missing one. The hint button was disabled, and there was no way I could finish without starting all over again. Bummer. Checking the forums, I saw that a lot of gamers had the exact same problem.This game is not so new that the glitch couldn't have been fixed by now. May 3, 2013
Based on the Demo Played the demo based on BF reviews. Rarely play a demo, then not buy. BUT. Liked the colorful eerie rooms and creepy town and that's all. HOs were boring, puzzles were OK, everything was too small. February 16, 2013
Mediocre It wasn't much challenge and the story about making people immortal by somehow fusing their souls into cars seems too much of a stretch. All of the people in the cars were unlikable and I wasn't at all interested in helping them. The music was not intrusive and worked well for the game. The graphics were mediocre but I didn't much care for the trashed and neglected scenery. It just wasn't a place I wanted to go. It isn't a bad game, but not a good one either. Some might like to burn some time with this for a few hours. June 2, 2014
