The Others 3.9 5 53 53
The Others....are waiting for you! I loved this game. You will really enjoy the characters you meet and the tasks you have to complete to discover the truth about Jones and the toy store. Shelly Callahan (I think that's her name) does a great job with the voice. I loved the secret entrance you access with a card. The conclusion is worth traveling all around town, searching for clues, ho's, and unique puzzles. I wish it was longer, but I still rate it 5 stars. It's rare to find a cool sci-fi game, so thanks Bigfish! March 16, 2014
Different and Fun This was enjoyable with the storyline and type of play. Different from Hidden Object and more like an adventure. This might have sequels to it as the ending made you believe there will be more coming. March 15, 2014
Nice Game - Innovative This is a fun game based on the 1 hour trial. I am impressed with one aspect in particular that I have not seen in other games. I love anything that deviates from the norm (is different.) When you hit the 'Hint' button during an HOS (when only a few items remain), you can click the inventory names and it will toggle to a couple alternatives - So for example 'whale' if clicked can become 'hat' and click again it may be 'can opener' - so sometimes things listed are really not in the scene and are hidden in a different way than usual. Nice game! March 13, 2014
Odd little gem This was a very fun albeit short game. The HOG's were quite easy, the puzzles were a little challenging. There was one puzzle that was so much fun and done really well even though it was simple. But what drew me in was the unusual story line. There's a few wow moments where I was just not expecting the story to go a certain way which is really cool and hard to do with the glut of adventure games now (not that I am complaining). I also liked the unusual visual style, reminded me of film noir. It's a great game for a lazy afternoon. March 21, 2014
A good game to play for an afternoon You are a reporter sent to find out what happened in this quiet little town where the toy factory closed down. Everybody left, the town is too quiet but you are determined to find out what happened and you do. This is basically what the intro says and the way it's said is creepy - but it got to me so much I played it over and over and over again. Probably the best intro I've heard on a game - ever. There are a lot of HOGs - not difficult - not hard to find your clues but a little twist on the "colored" items. I found I loved it and wished it were on more games. Hint hint devs. The hint button recharges very quickly. There are only 2 levels of difficulty. This is an easy game that would be great for beginners. Not spooky at all - except in.....well, you'll see. I had such a great time playing this game. Glam-ma definitely recommends it. March 19, 2014
No map This has a decent storyline and some fairly challenging puzzles with a nice twist on the HO scenes where the object you are hunting for might not be what is written, but you can change the clue. The story is different, not your usual "someone goes missing and I must find them" one. There is only one reason I would not recommend this game and that is that there is no map so in order to go anywhere there is lots and lots of clicking to go back. It makes the game boring and after a while you don't want to play anymore because you know your next move means you have to click the back button 12 times. If the developers are going to have so many different scenes and locations they should include an interactive map. March 12, 2014
Good for a beginner.. Hello all. Well, another SE today. This one is definitely an old school type of game, with no extras at all. The graphics aren't too bad, but a bit fuzzy. Colors are pretty good. Game play is okay, didn't have any problems at all. Story is nothing new and moves a little slowly. The voice overs aren't bad, but the woman's voice becomes quite grating very quickly. The man...tries to change the voice, but doesn't do well, all sound pretty much the same. There is a lot of running around for one little thing or another. HOGs are extremely easy and items are even easier to find. Hint system fills quickly and isn't really needed in this very simple game. Music is best turned down. This game is no where near challenging for the experienced gamer, but I think a beginner would like it a lot. It is just a very simple, no brainer kind of game and I sometimes like those myself. However, this one just didn't have anything that made me want to buy it. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for today. Thanks for the reviews. March 12, 2014
Fun but far too short I love these kinds of games, not all HO but makes you think. Unfortunately, I finished it in about 2 hours. Boooooo! March 12, 2014
Not like "the others" Well, I was happy to see a game offered based on a theme that is a little 'different' than most and especially so that it was adventure based [mixed with a sprinkling of H0P]. The graphics were very nicely done for the most part and some of the cutscenes and puzzles were imaginatively done in a way to create excitement and fun. There was appropriate theme SFX, music and voiceovers yet to me, the female voice in "The Others" is incredibly annoying [think repetitious and monotonous done in a determined, confident manner... huh?] and, due to her constant and annoying coaching, there was WAY to much handholding for this gamer to appreciate! So, unfortunately, my happiness faded more and more as I continued into the game.... the voice and overt hint prompts were just too much for me to take and some of the character models were 'iffy' [rather clich and unappealing to my eye]. Overall, the concept of "The Others" held promise... unfortunately, it ended up on the 'not so good' shelf with some of the "the others" I've been disappointed with. Worth a credit for a day when/if you have NOTHING else to do [are there such days?]; but otherwise thumbs [reluctantly] down on this one. March 13, 2014
Good, but couldve been longer I was excited to play this after watching the video and seeing all the reviews. After playing the free trial, I was hooked and decided to purchase. However, imagine my dismay when I finished the entire game in less than 4 hours! I was very disappointed. I was certain there was more to the story than that. Perhaps a bonus or extra level would've been nice. I definitely didn't get my money's worth from this one. March 15, 2014
