Nightfall Mysteries: Asylum Conspiracy
Love the Nightfall Mysteries series
It's easy to get immersed into the story line. It's dark, but with "cartoonish" characters, rather than real people, so it's not as scary. We have played it more than once and has been great fun every time. Great that there was a map so you didn't get too lost in the Asylum and you could go back to previous scenes. Really a fun game! We are now going to play the second of the series (see current favorite) again.

This game is the prequel to Nightfall Mysteries: Curse Of The Opera. While that game definitely has this one beat for creepiness and a slightly lengthier game, this also delivers a fun HOG/Puzzle experience. The graphics are excellent. The characters are fun and mysterious. Great voiceover work! The puzzles in this one are on the easy side, and the game is a bit shorter than I would have liked. But overall, a fun game with an engaging and well thought out story.

Multi-Room Asylum For Hidden Object Game Lovers
PLUS SIDE: It took me four hours to complete this game.Thank goodness for the map or I would never have gotten out of that asylum! If you like searching Hidden Object scenes (there are LOTS in this game) and enjoy exploring the grounds and many rooms of a multi-level asylum, I recommend this game. The storyline is engaging, and provides the background for another game (Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera). There are a few puzzles, and most are easy to solve, although the last one took me a while to complete. You will have a journal to help you, which includes a map; a task list; your clues; and a place for the 15 audiotapes that you will collect. If you find all the tapes, there is a bonus tape to play at the end. The graphics are bright and clear, and there are voiceovers for all the characters. The dialogue is also in text, which you can click on to skip. Take a few moments while playing to read the comments on the walls or comments when you click on items in rooms/hallways, some great humor, such as the Tooth Fairy comment "The fairy is a lie" written on the wall in the dentist office. Overall, a good game.
MINUS SIDE: Just a few for the minus side. Some of the Hidden Object scenes were very cluttered, although well drawn. Also, it took at least a minute or more for the Hint button to refill, also the Skip button, so I wish that had been a little faster.

Impressed over the length compared to what I assumed!
I'm quite impressed over the length of the game, since I assumed I would have spent only one night on the game. So, I gotta say that the length suprised me. I liked the interaction of hearing characters and other characters being around. I wish there was just a little bit more detail to the storyline, but since there is a sequel, maybe I missed a prequel? I have to say that I loved the audiotapes. I could go without the music and sounds other listening. The graphics were good, and I really enjoyed the puzzles. The Hidden Objects were not frustrating or annoying. Overall, it was a great ending to a nice beginning, and the story continues, so we'll see how that goes!

A Very Nice, Creepy, Game
Nightfall Mysteries: Asylum Conspiracy is a hidden object adventure game. The story has you playing a character that goes to an abandoned asylum on an island to locate your grandfather.
The graphics of this game are very eerie and creepy. The hidden object scenes and puzzles were fun. The voice acting was good. The characters were rather strange, but they are supposed to be strange.
Length for me was average. I finished in just over three hours. I liked it well enough I'm going to check out the next game in this series.

Curse of the Opera: The Prequel
Review after finishing the game:
+ game length
+ useful map! (no quick travel function though)
+ good voices
+ little used riddles
+ story ties in with Curse of the Opera (connection at the end)
+ decent difficulty (no sparkles)
o Spider! (fairly big, you have to get rid of it; several in hidden object scenes)
- story not always logical: How did the detective get through the door that I had to open by solving a riddle?
- Items are placed back into Hidden Object scenes
- final door riddle slightly frustrating
Bottom Line: Essential game if you played Curse of the Opera. However, since this one is the prequel you will spoil yourself the story of Opera, so play the other one first.

Very Interesting Hidden Object Game
The story line was great. This game is addictive because you want to see the ending, and it is long. It is not boring at all. I would recommend this game.

Super creepy adventure hidden object game!
The setting, storyline, and atmosphere rate High on the creep-o-meter! Too scary for kids; fun for teenagers or adults who enjoy this genre. Great graphics, sound effects and music; very challenging puzzles. Thrilling adventure!

I enjoyed it! Pretty good storyline. Nice dark plot. Not too short, but not one of the longest games out there either.
The background art and the search scenes are beautiful, but the character art is not so great.
There is a sequel to this game, Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera Walkthrough, but I don't think it's nearly as good as this one. That one is very hokey seems almost like a comedy.
