Stray Souls: Stolen Memories
BEAUTIFUL GAME AND STORY
Review based on completed game in casual mode.
Animation/VOS - Excellent! Loved the wooden dolls (people).
IHOS - Fairly clear with small to larger items. Found the pounding noise every time I clicked on an item annoying.
Hint - Fast charge. Gives directions and clues.
Journal - Contains story, photos and map.
Map - Did not transport when I tried it.
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Unique. Some cannot be skipped.
Skip - Fast charge.
Inventory - Items are used quickly in other locations. Can't remember if it locked in place.
Random Click Penalty - Screen turns foggy for a second.
Really, devs, overclicking should not be penalized. When the items are small, that's the only way I can find them. :-D
Characters and scenery are beautifully drawn. Now that's the way animation and vos should be done!
Throw the line in and hook this one! Enjoy!!

Creative and interesting game
Very enjoyable game. Dark, sometimes scary but creative. Puzzles moderately hard. I've played many many games and this one kept me interested and sometimes delighted. While it's the usual story of a mother searching for her lost daughter (and husband), the locations and required activities often were original. Ending was very satisfactory. I highly recommend this game and hope the developers create more like it.

I really enjoyed this game! I've played 100's of HOG's, and this one really caught my attention. The graphics were amazing, the music was gripping (which I usually hate), and the storyline was interesting. I typically "skip" past the story part, but because the game was so fun, I didn't want to miss a thing. There were lots of fun and unusual puzzles, but not too difficult. I have played more challenging games, but it was nice to play a game where I didn't have to backtrack so much. When I found an item, I usually knew right where it went. I recommend you play on "expert" level, otherwise it will be way too easy. Excellent game! Looking forward to more games from this developer!

Great adventure game with few HOS
This developer never disappoints me. It's a spooky well-designed long game that is lots of fun to play. You'll rarely see a HO game with so few HO scenes and lots of puzzles and colorful scenes to explore. The creative types of locks that the game designer has come up with alone put this game well above average. Only 2 minor faults: no interactive map and no Blog Walk-through (but you can find one online). Now I'm going to go get the first game which I'm sure will be just as much fun.

Much Better Than First
The quality has improved substantially with this game compared to the first, and the length of the game was very satisfying. I really enjoyed this game.

Erie and Scary, just the way I like them!
This game comes very close to the way I love to play the Hidden Object Games. It was a little scary and haunting!! It was fairly easy with creativity and story line. Thanks!!!

If clowns give you the creeps, this game definitely will! Thought it was creative with a great story line. Was definitely worth playing.

After purchasing the first game and thoroughly loving it,I gladly welcomed a sequel.This game has all the qualities of being a great game.From start to finish,I was completely immersed,not only in the continuing saga of the evil clown,etc.,but the music, which keeps you in the eerie creepy mode,to the wonderful graphics that we have been accoustomed to from from this developer.
I played this game in one sitting which I don't usually do but it held my interest so well.A game such as this is so much more enjoyable to play because you are not trying to figure out what to do next,it is very nicely laid out and easy to follow where you do not need a walkthrough.The map is always a welcome addition as we have grown tired of retracing our steps.
The unusual storyline made this a unique game as well as the beautiful graphics and colorization.I highly recommend this for those who want an atmospheric game.
