Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors
Objects found with min effort, however, still had challenging spots.

Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors
There is a reason why BFG gives demo in almost every game, so you should try before buying. This is when I made mistake of not trying on the demo first. Unfortunately this game is not my cup of tea and the storyline in every level is the same, finding mirror shards to return you back to normal world. The ending is the only part of the game which I like. Maybe I should play this game a few times more so I'll like it..

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.

I am downloading the sequel to this game right now...well, not certain it is a sequel but it is the 2nd installment of Haunted Manor. I do not remember all of the details of this game as it has been a very long time since I played....I just remember it being one of my favorites for a good while. Some HOG's I don't even remember playing (chronic illness causes memory problems) so the fact that I remember this game being good, the mirrors and the souls he meets up with...tells you it is a good story!
Maybe you can catch in on sale for $4.99...since BFG runs great sales and pretty much around holiday weekends, so be sure to give this a try.
I love mixing up play between old and new games for variety and with all the specials these past few months I have about 30 games in a file called: HOG's not played yet....LUCKY ME!

This game just...no...NO!
I don't know why I got this game. Maybe it was because it was on discount, and I'm a cheap person?
Alright, where to begin...let's start with the story line.
Story Line: It was absolutely cheesy and just terrible.Terrible, cheesy script, and one of the worst villains ever. Lord of the Mirrors? Am I supposed to be intimidated by that? And, I never fully understood what that dude gained from becoming Lord of the Mirrors, or why he even did it in the first place. (They didn't really explain it all that well) I just...and the ending just flopped. Please at least let the sequel be better.
Game play: I was completely unchallenged. It's too easy! You're told how to do everything, and it's just...it wasn't fun. This was actually the first game that I actually had to walk away from because I got bored with it.
Graphics: meh...they were okay.
I actually haven't touched it since playing it, and don't intend to ever again. This game isn't worth the money.

I have played this game at least 6 times now as I have owned it for awhile and I still have fun playing. It has an interesting storyline - you visit an old house and get captured in a mirror and you have to gather the pieces to escape. You meet all kinds of interesting people in the game and the mini-games are very well done and not too difficult. All I play are hidden object games so I really love all the games in this one, especially at the end. It is very well drawn and sound is good. If I did not enjoy the game I would not play it over and over. Hope you enjoy it as I do.

I absolutely loved the first Haunted Manor so bought this without trying it first. BIG mistake!!! This was an absolute bore. The storyline could have been good...but wasn't. Big, old, beautiful mansion, deserted for unknown reasons. Wow, isn't that going to be a blast to wander through investigating??? But you don't. You jump through mirrors to get from one room to the next, spending very little time and seeing very little. And the characters were so completely undeveloped I couldn't have cared less about them. I played in the "adventure" mode and man what a headache. It was a cross between absolute hand holding and being completely lost about what to do next. And you had to go in the order they wanted you to, no straying from the path. Sparkles? Do your HO first cuz you're not moving on otherwise. And all those other little glints, don't bother to click on them cuz you won't be able to do a thing til that HO gets done. You see a dozen candles laying all over the room and an empty candelabra hanging overhead? Forget about it til the game tells you otherwise because you absolutely will NOT be allowed to pick up one single candle until then. The "adventure" mode meant no sparkles...yeah right. But what it didn't give you was "the hand" when you hovered over something you needed. Then punished you if you clicked too often trying to figure out what the heck it wanted you to find! You're in an armory and you need to cut a rope. Can you use the swords or battle axes lying all over the place? No! And speaking of armory, or at least the word, I have a pretty large vocabulary and even I found some of the "clues" in the HO's to be pretty "Huh???". Leading to random clicking and...you guessed it...penalties! Finished it (cuz I'm stubborn like that), hated it, deleted it.

Clean and Clear
This was my second-ever HOG, and it's perfect for beginners. The game is relatively short, with clear graphics and a straightforward, entertaining storyline. The ending is better, in my opinion, than most other HO games'.
For a more experienced player, this would be a fun game for maybe two-to-three hours.

Stuck in a spooky house and can't get out!
I find that premise spooky in itself! Every room has special tasks to complete or you are stuck in this haunted house forever!! There are other spirits who haven't been so lucky and are now trapped in there. And all this because of a dare!
Enjoyable game play
