The Happy Hereafter
Five Star Fun
I hardly ever buy a game right after doing the one hour trial, but for me this was to cute too pass up. It has a funny, cute bunch of characters who will keep you busy dragging them around from job to job. There are lots of quest and things to discover around the land to stay busy for a long time. If you have ever played Farm Tribe this game is comparable to that. The younger kids could work on it with the help of parents and really enjoy it too. Nice game, I'll be looking for a second one.

A Great Game
This is my favorite game after Plants vs. Zombies. I especially liked the characters. My only complaint was that it was too short.

Quirky game but Hilarious.
This is one of those games it takes a few times to play to figure it out. But it was so much fun figuring it out.
I actually got attached to some of my ghouls like Shep and Merv, You might have 2 or 3 Shep's or Merv's but I love them all. It seems that all of the trinkets you find is attached to what ghouls you get. So if you picked up a few artifacts and you have a lot of ghouls there will only be a few different ghouls. You will have 3 Merv's and 3 Elizabeth's if you only picked up two artifacts. .
Quirky things about the game you have to figure out. Things like they will feed themselves when they are hungry, most of the time. One quirk I found annoying are the levels. You think the first level of mines, shops, warehouses, houses etc. Is the level you first get , no it is the first level you get after you study One star for level 2 and 2 stars for level three.. Very confusing, you have to study to get those levels. And some levels are not marked that way.
The game was very fun to play. It is not hard. The only problem was in the beginning you might run out of food and money but it that not last too long, as soon as you can trade. Do not buy too many workers because it will deplete your food no matter if you have both farms at level 3. The last level warehouse should hold more. I was making too much product and money and it would not fit in the warehouse. A solution is to stop some of workers but now you have bunch of workers hanging out doing nothing but eating, it looked like a 7-11 Parking lot on the bad side of town in the summer.
Buy the game it was hilarious . IMO it runs too short. Let's hope if there is another one it is much longer, with a bigger warehouse.

Kinda like the island tribe games but I like it much better because tasks are completed in real time. So it makes it harder to quit, you just want to keep playing.

Mostly fun, but don't get ahead of the quests!
I've played this game on another site, and really enjoyed it on the whole. The aim is to build up your town - collect resources, build buildings, upgrade them and complete quests. Occasionally you're attacked by monsters. The gameplay is pretty slow after the beginning but there's plenty of areas to explore. The dynamics remind me of tribal games like Many Years Ago and Escape from Paradise.
A warning - in the version I've played if you get ahead of the quests and do things too soon you can get stuck later on, but despite this it is still a really fun game.

A great Halloween story line. At first a little confusing. I love all the different characters. It is on the line of Adelanto Trilogy Book One and two. If you like those type of games you'll sure to love this on.

Here's a trick, this game is a treat!
As far as 'Halloween' themed games go, this game delivers on 'theme' alone. The graphics are quite similar, in fact almost identical, to 'Vampires vs Zombies' which is a plus IMO. This game has a fun factor as well as requiring some thinking on the players part. You don't spend hours upon hours 'waiting for something to do'. There is always a task to do and as soon as you finish one, another will pop up.
The best thing with regard to that is that there is no 'time limit' to tasks, and the 'hint/tip' option is very helpful (and can be turned off if you wish).
You are also given a warning when invaders seize to steal your items which comes in very handy given the large game map.
Any game that can keep my attention longer than 10 minutes is a winner in my book - and this one certainly does.
All in all, I think it's a pretty little decent task-centered game that you'll enjoy if you like such themed games.

One good looking game
The Happy Hereafter has a lot going for it:
- Well drawn, fluid characters that don't take weeks to move to a different location
- Beautiful scenery that fits seamlessly into this imaginary realm
- A variety of 'things to do'
- Easy to master controls and tasks
The downside is that the overall game play is rather simplistic and it takes no time at all to achieve the final goal and reach the end of the 'quest'. Everything was over and done within 2 days, which is a real shame as I was just starting to enjoying visiting this colourful little land.
I admit, you are able to continue playing or start again but there wouldn't be any challenge in doing so.

Cute and Creepy Family Fun
I have to say I've never been so determined to play a game as I am this one. The graphics are great, the music is fun, and the characters are as cute as zombies can get. Play is simple and addictive with quests that aren't much of a challenge but still fun to complete. My 7 yo daughter has fun watching and playing it too. The only down side to this game is that it's very glitchy. It gets hung up if you get ahead of the quests and may or may not let you progress. Sometimes the characters get stuck in one spot and don't make it to the storage areas without help which can be a bit of work to keep up on when you have 20+ workers to keep track of. The first player profile got corrupted the first day of play, so I had to start over. The second game got hung up and I ended up un-installing the game and re-installing it to fix the problem. Third time I had to make a new player profile. Now I'm on my 4th try at getting through. I find this game so fun and addictive I don't mind having to start over. I'm just really enjoying it! Despite the problems it has, I love this game!
