Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors
I liked it
Not a bad game. The HOS and puzzles were not all that hard. Had a decent flow to the game and kept you interested. Hint button works well.

A fun little HOG
This game was a lot of fun to play. It was a bit on the easy side, and the puzzles really held no challenge at all, but it was a good length and kept me entertained for hours. You do revisit all of the scenes at the end to collect extra pieces to the puzzle (won't say more, as I don't want to spoil it) so that extends the gameplay a bit. There are plenty of scenes to play and each scene has at least two tasks to complete, and many had more. The only annoying part was that there were a lot of things in the scenes that were very obviously needed to complete a task but you couldn't click on them and add them to your inventory until the task had opened. And a new task wouldn't open until you had completed the previous task. All in all, this was a fun little game for those new to the genre, or even for experienced HOG gamers who just want to slow it down a bit.

So much fun!!
I loved that game! It was quite long, with very little going back and forth, nice HOG scenes but not too difficult, and an amazing variety of riddles and mini-games. Can't wait to try the sequel...

Basically, you make a bet with some friends to enter "that" proverbial spooky house on the corner that every town seems to have, this one being a mansion which has stood alone and empty for years.... Well, it's actually still completely furnished but a bit worse for wear, yet none of the 'usual' decrepit and depressing scenerios we've been bombarded with in games of late. So, once inside you are trapped by an apparition and must do various tasks for other spirits who had once lived or had connections in the house to free them and in return they assist you in collecting shards of glass from a mirror in order to regain your "self". So you have a dual purpose to save yourself AND the multiiple ghosts who are trapped throughout the mansion, each asking for your assistance to aid them to be free from their own curse, being trapped and in return after you fulfill their requests for assistance, they will uncover a hidden 'shard' to the mirror which will ultimately free you. The mirrors have presumably trapped all the others at varying times for varying reasons by a nemesis with quite the grudge.
Although I've played many games and genres, I must put this one up on the top of the list of quality spooky games. The graphics are pure artistry, vivid, clear, crisp, H0 scenes that contain items all valid to the theme in each and every scene, which are various rooms within the mansion you are "trapped" in. Mini games ditto. All visuals were just a pure pleasure to look at. I took my time playing because I wanted to observe and take everything in along the way.
The "mirror" theme is unique and compelling and although the game in general has a lot going for it in scary factors, there were none of the nasty over- the- top dark themes I dread for example, no excessive grossness, gooey eyeballs, excess masses of crawly spiders & such, gobs of gore, drippy blood, mean and nasty images, nor occult type actions required within the gameplay and unnecessary things that are distasteful put- offs to me. Just a wonderful and spooky game with some "startle moments" and lots of healthy scary format from start to finish.
Gameplay penalties: Misclicks #consistant ones in a row# "crack" the screen... I thought a creative and appropriate penalty to a game where you are traveling from mirrors, yet it does not go overboard in doing so and leaves the player a lot of room for exploring. There are also player experience levels to choose in the beginning as well.
The sound, music and voice all tie in to make for a perfect, fun, and 'cosy' scary game.
KUDOS to the developers and I look forward to their next creation.
Check this one out, I bet you'll love it as much as I did.... in fact, I now wish I had purchased the CE and may do a trade- in at that so I can add to the wonderful and spooky experience I had with the SE!

This is quite a long game, with many HOS and easy puzzles. Graphics are very good and the storyline is interesting. It's a good game, if you need a break from all the dark games and from games where you often have to look at the walkthrough.

An Amazing Game!
This game is one of the very best Hidden Object Games I have ever played. Here are my thoughts on the game:
The overall spookiness of the game
Being able to find hidden objects everywhere
Having to find a hidden object to find another hidden object (for example: having to find a key to open a box which contained something else you needed to find)
The minigames were pretty good
The hint recharged quickly '
The Storyline hooked me
The mirror shard thing. Sometimes I couldn't figure out where they needed to be placed
If I had anything bad to say about this game, it would be that the mirror cracking sound made me jump a few times, but that could easily be fixed by turning the sound down.
This is my favourite game and I'd reccomend it to anyone.

Just Plain Fun!
This is a relatively simple game (even I could finish it!) that gave me lots of hours of relaxing play. I don't wanna hafta twist my brain into frustrating knots trying to figure something out. Too old for that! And for me, that's not fun; it's WORK. This game is straightforward - find the hidden objects, solve reasonable puzzles, have a satisfying conclusion that doesn't require 6 months of your life, 37 walk-throughs & a Masters' degree in obtuse factoids. REALLY hope I can find more like this one.

Unique story line, keeps your interest while playing.

Objects found with min effort, however, still had challenging spots.

Lord of Mirrors Great Fun
I played this game after Queen of Death and I think it is a better game. I loved its simplicity. Great clear graphics no eye strain with the HOs and the music not intrusive. Great for those who dont like puzzles. Game long for a SE.
