Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeney Todd Collector`s Edition
Help the inspector to investigate missing of a young sailor, find out what happened and who is behind it !
2 modes of play: easy with no miss-click penalty in HOS, fast hint recharge, sparkle indicators; hard with penalties, fewer helpful sparkles, slower hint recharge.
Storyline is fantastic, if you are familiar with the original Sweeny Todd you will know what to expect. A great mystery with elements of horror and of course beautiful music!
Graphics are really good, I loved the whole look of London, perfect rainy atmosphere and detailed locations.
Map is very helpful, it allows you to travel through many different locations in London. You have a list of evidence for each chapter.
Speaking of hidden object scenes, well I must say, I was a bit disappointed. Way too many of them, and also most of HOS were like a junkpile so I wasn?t able to spot objects so easy.
Puzzles on the other side were fun, mostly easy but entertaining.
Despite the problem I had with HOS I enjoyed a lot playing this one!
I recommend it!

Worth the money
Enjoyable game. Lots of HO and a good flow to the game. The HO will keep you looking hard but you do have a hint button if needed.

Eat more chicken!
The graphics were great. Storyline was terrible; like "boring" terrible. Some of the objects were very difficult to find (and very small). Had to retrace your steps too many times. No way would I purchase the collector's edition.

I loved this HOG for the story line and production values. I actually loved the singing. It was professional and the voice acting throughout was superb.
As a CE I was expecting extra game play but realized to follow the actual story the game had to end when it did. I hope to see more Penny Dreadfulls.

The scenery is beautifully done. The graphics are great. The objects in the hidden scenes do not stand out at all, unlike a lot of games. The storyline follows through wonderfully. The only downfall to this game, is that it is really short. I did expect there to be a little more to it.

An Eerily Good Game
Enjoyed this game. The artwork was good, and I enjoyed the macabre settings.

This game is for expert HOG players! I only had one HOG that I finished without using the hint button. The puzzles were equally difficult!! One really nice thing about this collectors edition is that you can replay the puzzles and HOGs to better your time. The hint button took about 45 seconds to recharge but was worth the wait. when I got stuck.

What can i say? SUPER SUPER SUPERB!!!!!
I have not gone out of my mind, i have bought a cartload of games from Big Fish, but this is and will be ( if BF will not surprise me in the future) my everlasting favorite! All know the story but here it has been displayed in a superb rendering of graphics and screenplay. TRY IT, LOVE IT.

A Lot of Fun
This is based on the demo, but I'm saving up for this one until I can afford it. Imagine "The Perils of Pauline" combined with "Monty Python" and you've got the gist. This game is well worth the money, because you'll want to play it again.

Rich gameplay...spooky atmosphere and superb graphics!
I was never a favorite of HOGs, but Penny Dreadfuls set itself a part from others. The puzzles were intriguing, and of course the story plot was good and well translated from the original into a very good game. I found the quality of this game to be up there amongst some of the greats like Drawn and Midnight Mysteries. The graphics, story line, puzzles and overall feeling were created perfectly. Thanks BFG for bringing another great game to us for an even greater price.
