Victorian Mysteries: Woman in White
Based on the Wilkie Collins' novel of the same name
He also wrote "The Moonstone." The plot follows the original fairly faithfully.
Rather clunky. Old-style graphics. The off-set pointer made it difficult to know exactly what was being examined or picked up. Not too much backtracking. Puzzles were not at all difficult; in fact, some were almost insultingly easy. The fishing game -- I never could get the hang of that, and it felt out of place, as if the developers had a routine they didn't know what to do with, so they threw it in here.
The ending is abrupt, even for these kind of games.
What kind of drawing teacher goes around smashing and breaking and dissolving half the house?
Might be a good game for a beginner.

It could have been good. Cons: penalty clicking, puzzles you could not skip, short, could not skip opening scene, hint refill was way too slow. Pro: pretty good story thus the 2 stars and some nice scenery.

Not yet for Kindle Fire HDX but worth playing on other devices
I had a ton of problems with the game on my Kindle Fire HDX. The reviews & game page all stated that the repairs had been made and if you have any problems, just remove and reload. I reloaded AND reset my player 3 times each and still had no journal and no visible inventory. Each time I wanted something from inventory I had to go through it blindly and found that items move around each time you touch them.
Saying all that, the game was interesting and fun or I would never have paid the full price to keep playing. The HOSs were fun, not challenging, but OK. I liked the mini games. But most of all the story. It is worth playing IF your game functions properly. Of course I played the whole game with problems, but had to go to the walk through for certain hints. I guess that alone tells you a lot of the game or about me, laugh!

Waste of money
Bought this game but it was waste of money. It played out really quick and then nothing else to do. Finished in 2 days.

Too many glitches! -- takes the fun away.
Too many things wrong with this game. For example, you click on the hint button and it shows you where to go... only you cant go there because you haven't finished doing whatever needs to be done where you are. Why doesn't the hint help with what needs to be done first?
Hint takes forever to recharge, and is useless anyway. It shows you an area where there is something to do.. even if you don't have the right object in inventory to do it. ..or the problem above. It has not helped me ONCE!
Penalty for clicking after only a couple of miss-clicks in the HO, even on casual mode. And some of the items are so hard to find, guessing is a must.
Games have the ''skip" button and instructions active, so it looks like you have all you need to play the game -- only you don't . :(
Loading time for everything takes way toooo long.
The SAME music every time you click an active area gets annoying.. to me anyway.
I understand its an older game, but the glitches should be fixed if they continue to sell it. If I could return it for a refund I would.

Another game in slow motion, no full screen and sparkles even in advanced mode. The graphics are ok.
