Russian developer goes Vampire
Review after finishing the game:
+ very well done voice-overs
+ good mix of mini-games
+ hint does not recharge if it directs you to the correct screen
+ they tried lip-synced animation and mostly succeeded...
o ...but not always
o lots of spiders (small, you have to interact with them)
- lots of random clicking (no penalty though, and hint refills quite fast)
- scare factor zero
- pretty forward story with no twists and turns
Bottom Line: A very different vampire game that doesn't go the usual romantic heartthrob way.

A Different type of Vampire game
It is good to see something more original than the usual types of games, and this one is different. I really like how you can open cabinets and move items, too.
And this game has a sense of humor seldom found in a vampire game.
Some of the mini games were tedious but you could skip them if you liked.
I enjoyed this game.

really funny! LOL several times!
This game is all about hilarious fun. The story and VO's are really humorous.
Gameplay, HOS and puzzles are not difficult, but a bit different than other HOS. You search around the room and can move all kind of furniture, open and close curtains.... really neat.
graphics are good, but not great.
Try it, I'm sure you'll love it!!

funny hidden object game
This game was pretty funny. The only thing that I did not like about it is that you have to do ALOT of random clicking to find everything (I just found what I could then used the hints a lot and they recharged pretty quickly so that was not to bad) Also you have to continue on to a save point or have to start from the begenning of the chapter. The mini games were fun and a good mixture of different stuff. The storyline was friggen funny and gave a new twist on the whole vampire thing!!

Fun and Humorous Hidden Object Adventure
Although it seems like it would be a dark game by the title, it is really light and humorous. The graphics are bright and clear enough with a musical little soundtrack. The voiceovers were realistic and not annoying. The characters were fun, most notably the main character who looked like Keeanu Reeves with a cool British accent. The butler was also a fun character who looked like he was from the Nightmare Before Christmas. H.O. scenes and mini puzzles were fun, somewhat challenging.

Definitely a buy.
Just started playing the demo and stopped to buy. This is a fun different kind of HOG. Fun story.

This is a good HOG in spite of the few negative reviews you see here. The negative part comes in how good (bad) you are at figuring out what to do with the objects after you find them & the valid locations for your searches. Sometimes it is a little difficult to figure out what you're supposed to be looking for based on the clues. I have poor eye sight due to age so it took me a little more effort to find things. Plus, I am one of those who can find the objects most of time but have a heck of the time figuring out what to do with said object. The story line is funny. I laughed much of time & would repeat chapter openings to see them again. The animation isn't bad but the voice overs need a little help. This is a good HOG for variety.

Fun little game who will leave you smiling
This is the first HOG where you look for hidden objects in a room, and your search is very much the way it goes in a real room. Open and close drawers and doors, move objects back and forth. Sometimes you find things and sometimes you come up a cropper - just like in real life.
Characters are fun, starting with the ghost St Bernard, who has been saving his wages in several jars... And the vampire maid who when the protagonist acts surprised to find out what she is accuses him of gender discrimination because he thinks that only men can be vampires...
This is lighheaded romp, with different tasks to be accomplished in two, at most three room. No unncessary backtracking. The mini-games integrate with the story. The storyline is fluff, but amusing fluff. The level of skill is not that much, but then point of a game is having fun, and this delivers it in spades.

The earlier reviews do say it all. A humorous, fun, enjoyable game to play !!!!! I recommend highly. Something different.
