Dark Manor: A Hidden Object Mystery 3.4 5 199 199
Dark Manor - good but some issues - PC Version Dark Manor is a very unique and different kind of game, however, I would have given it a much better review if it weren't for these 10 issues with the game. #1. To play the H O type areas cost you 15 energy points when you play them, if you don't have enough, you're stuck at levels until you can get the energy level and sometimes silver or gold to play the area. AS it is not that easy to acquire gold, unless you purchase it with real money from your credit/debit card using REAL FUND$! I personally do not like this and will expel more on this later. #2. The game once I had it installed constantly crashed with access violation errors and these errors were always a different number, but seemed to happen in mostly the same area of the game. There were a few times it crashed in other areas with this on Win7, which looked for a solution, could not find one and closed the game. Rendering it not very fun for the end gamer. The worst area was when coming back from visiting others mansions, as soon as you clicked on the house and the "loading" screen came up, music stopped playing, game locked up for a few moments and then an access violation would occur. #3. To buy more gold to build or purchase things within the game costs REAL MONEY, you have to literally pay money from your ACTUAL Bank Account to get more gold. Gold is used to buy extra silver, plants, walkers and other activities within the game or to buy and open additional levels. I WOULD never pay real money to purchase anything that should be incorporated into the game, this is NOT REAL LIFE and therefore monies within a game should be attainable within the game by other means, it is, after all a GAME, again, NOT Real life. #4. Summoning to activate things in the game can take hours, a day or two or even a week to get them operational in the game, again, this IS A GAME and these time factors are unrealistic for a game. #5. When visiting another Mansion, you will add neighbors within the game, but no real way to seek out and find any particular player to add them as a friend in this game, also when visiting, the game does nothing to show you have already visited that particular mansion, and many folks have named their mansions with the same name, such as 1313 Mockingbird Lane, Hotel California, 1313 Elm Street. I have probably at last count around 7 1313 Mockingbird Lanes, however, there is no way to know which one you visited and the list does not keep the names in any set order, so you may end up visiting the same mansion 3 or 4 times before you move on to the next one with the same name! The background color of visit is blue, however it should turn red and change visit to visited so you know exactly where you've been. This would reset daily as you get Juju, Silver and XP points by playing a game on your neighbors property, but can only do that once per day, so not knowing where you've been makes it very difficult to accumulate accomplishments that are required within the game. #6. I see updates for this game on FB, such as new walkers have been added, yet I have yet to see my Dark Manor game update and add the new features or these walkers, which is supposed to be "automatic" and done in the background as you play the game. But that has not worked for me on the PC version, which both my wife and I are playing. #7. No way to add in a neighbor by searching for them or their mansions name or gamers ID set by the game. Would be nice to be able to add folks manually by a search, such as a real neighbor or family member that is also playing the game. #8. Gifiting is limited to 7 neighbors a day, this is really annoying to me, because I have added well over 250+ neighbors to date and I have yet to be able to gift anywhere near that amount with the 7 gift limit, as your neighbor list grows, so should the amount of gifts you can give out grow. #9. The costs to add items to your mansions property to make it grow are totally out of line, way too expensive to purchase things as the costs are ridiculously overpriced for a game setting. These items to improve and make your mansion productive, as some actually pay you silver {rental space} while on your property, but the payout is very small compared to what the items cost to buy and place on your property. The costs should be dropped, and I mean dropped very considerably. #10-. Would be nice if the screen where you see all the action could have all the extraneous icons removed so you could see your entire property unobstructed by anything, instead you have to scroll around to move it from behind these icons that can't be temporarily removed to see everything as a whole. It would also be nice if the "animated screen" could be used as a screen saver for your computer or static ones for background wallpapers without the icons around it. Do I like the game, yes, but because of the 10 items listed above, I, in all honesty can not give it a 5 star rating, however, even though I have 10 complaints, there are a lot of nice features to the game, I love the walkers, especially the skeletons and would like to see more spooky type walkers as well, the flowers, plants and trees are marvelous, albeit a bit costly, the animation is well done and the graphics really are quite superb in the game. The game, even with its current faults is extremely addictive, the Hidden Object games are very well done, and my only complaint with them is I'd rather see an option to allow me to play them how I prefer, not be locked into playing "blitz" {timed}, anagram or untimed, but an option to select how I would prefer to play the game. I really hate the blitz {timed} ones, I like the anagrams and the untimed ones. Would I recommend the game, yes, it can be quite fun and enteraining, but the costs of acquiring things being so much seems to turn a lot of folks off, but we still keep playing, the game is that addictive and it is unique in the format, it's something that I've not seen in any Hidden Object games I've played. I would just like to see a few modifications to the game to make it more enjoyable for everyone. And I do have to say, even with all its current faults, Dark Manor has become my most popular and favorite game to play to date. August 29, 2013
hidden object game Dark Manor graphics are wonderful but I couldn't figure out the direction of the game. Not much in hidden objects, you keep being directed back to the same scene. Not as good as Crystal Portal August 25, 2013
OK...for freeplay This is a fairly fun game, albeit a frustrating eye test at the same time. Things are mostly tiny in the HO parts. The play is a bit things, search here, go there. Most of the time, I really didn't know what I was doing. Also, the loading between different actions is quite slow. Not bad but not really good, either. August 24, 2013
Fun for a while While the game says "free", it's not really free if you want to get any where with it. I like the story line but at level thirty and not having invested any money in it, I'm tired of it. It's a lot of work. If you try this game and want to play it for "free", I highly recommend that you look at the online tips before you start. I wish I had. I think I would have gotten farther faster. April 10, 2014
OK BUT... I like the game except you have to purchase gold coins to really advance, maybe I am stupid but that doesnt work for me or my budget October 23, 2013
Disappointing I did buy this game, I used my Big Fish monthly game credit. But the most disappointing thing about it is. No matter how great you are at the HO puzzles or how many attractions you build. There is no way you can advance in this game without pumping more money into it. In reality it costs money to play each HO scene and achievements are generally dependent on the Spin bonus at the end of each HO scene. Plus it take an awful lot of time just to win one gold bar, and it costs 12 gold bars to buy energy to play 6 HO scenes. It's shame as I liked the idea of creating the mansion. But you know what, I can't afford it. By the way if you sign out and wait a couple of hours, energy increases to allow you to play 3 HO scenes and have two spins for free. Perhaps this is the future of gaming? September 20, 2013
Enjoying but don't like certain things I've enjoyed playing but there are a lot of things to improve upon. There needs to be something showing that you have already visited a neighbor that day. Otherwise you are clicking on one and wasting your time (since you can only play the connection once in 24 hrs). So, you would have to have a check off sheet because with 100 neighbors you can't remember. The pages take too long to load and there are three of them to get back to your home after visiting. I don't care about storylines so the lack of one is fine with me. It requires playing the same scene WAY WAY TOO MANY TIMES in order to advance and when you have gotten all the ectoplasm, there is no big sign that you accomplished anything or a prize for doing so. This game really needs some revamping. I love the graphics and funny characters. September 26, 2013
Not to my Liking As much as I love HO games I don't think I would buy this game. I did not really like the story line - it was hard to follow. Back and forth and back and forth with no real story to follow. It was hard at times to understand what to do next. Some people may like it but unfortunately I am not one of them and I have bought many, many HO games. I will have to pass on this one. Sorry - August 29, 2013
issues that need addressed As a former big fish game beta tester I expect a lot out of the kind of games that I see on here. Yes this game is fun and I have gotten a few of my friends playing BUT I have several issues with this game that have not been addressed anywhere or by big fish itself as they have been emailed about them already. Firstly energy you only ever get 50 no more unless you buy it then you loose your energy that you would have gained at level up. You never can have your friends as your neighbors there is no way to add them you are only allowed random players, you get (bonuses) or buy stuff and either it fails to show or you only get a portion of what you paid for. The graphics are great but the camera angle sucks as you can't change the angle when in build mode to see areas that are blocked by unbought property. My real grip is that property is so expensive to purchase that I find that I play the game just to earn enough coins to buy 1 piece of property then I game for another 2 weeks to buy the next piece. Why is it each individual property is a different price why not work the price by group blocks or rows seriously for the broke like me buying gold bars and coins is not an option. The game is fun and a great way to pass time but it takes way to long to do anything that i find myself getting frustrated. December 25, 2013
Fun HOGs but not worth buying extras This is like all those Facebook games where you need lots of friends and to buy gold to progress past a certain point. The story is good, there is no challenge, the graphics could be better, turn off the music. The HOGs are fun and varied. Money, energy, JuJu, and gold don't add up fast enough past a certain point to be helpful. You have to buy these things to advance. But as a thumb-twiddler time-waster, it's okay. Just not worth buying extras to advance December 8, 2013
