Your little sister Rose has always loved mysteries and adventures and that's why she became an archaeologist. After being summoned to an excavation in east Slovakia, Rose suffered terrible nightmares of a dark hooded figure. After receiving an anxious letter from her, you decide to go see her only to find out that she's vanished! Now, it's up to you to learn the truth behind the ancient legend of the Blood Countess before her castle claims another victim.

The history of almost every country has a controversial figure whose sins and virtues have been debated for centuries. While most of the world knows Elizabeth Bathory as the ruthless serial killer, many biographers still claim that she was slandered. Taking a twist on different theories and speculations, this hidden object adventure game offers a stunning entanglement of legends and evidence, history and magic.

Bathory: The Bloody Countess 2.4 5 49 49
Is This Where The Saying "Blood Bath" Comes From? It would seem that unless a game plays itself for you, people are apt to dislike it. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed this game. You have to figure out where to go and what to do in the adventure part of the game. The HOS were simplistic, but even there you have to use your brain to open or uncover items to find things from the list. Yes, there are no VOs, but then, we all learned to read in grade school (hopefully). Yes, there is no hand holding or annoying hints to constantly guide your way. This is a game for anyone who wants some challenge. In fact, you have to buy hints. I liked the way this game looks, the graphics were simple, but very good and believable. Google it, people. I hope the devs of this game completely ignore the negative reviews, because not all of us want cookie cutter games everyday of the week. September 3, 2015
I am loving this game I am so surprised at the number of bad comments about this game. I thought it was a little strange at the beginning and then as I played on the game got better and better it reminds me of the Inner World because you have to figure things out for yourself because the help give you clues not points at the items you need and I love games that make you think.

Good, but different It is the best adventurous game i ever played, It's a good game, but just different, not like the other adventure games on Bigfish. But it has advantages, like interesting story, good and not difficult, mini games (some of them are new and I haven't met them before). It is a relaxing game but at the same time it has mystery music. But the graphics aren't fantastic but may be it's just different as I said above. But overall, game is addictive and I'd recommend it.

An Amazing Experience Graphics The creators obviously decided to make the game stand out. According to previous comments, many players didn?t appreciate the chosen style. It looks retro, I believe, because the action takes place a few decades ago. Will do for me. Storyline You receive a letter from your younger sister, who has found a strange gemstone at the ruins of the Bathorys? castle. She asks you to visit her as she is afraid of the place. However you only come to find her missing, as well as a dozen of local girls. Just as usual, the police leaves it upon you. Here you go! Music / Voiceovers Can?t comment upon it, because I usually switch them off as soon as main menu appears. HO scenes & puzzles It?s actually the first game I come across, where you get paid for HO scenes. A curious approach, because previously (for instance, in the Grim Facade series) coins were scattered all around. It?s good, that the item list was different whenever I replayed a HOS, so it didn?t seem repetitive. Puzzles were more or less usual, so I never used the Skip button. Gameplay Once you get used to the navigation and talk to the old lady, the real adventure begins. The only odd thing I remember is using a firefly to light a torch. The rest seemed quite logical to me, especially with the Hint button. Take your time to play through the demo before you make a final opinion. It?s not a eerie HOPA, though the game title may suggest it. Still it?s a decent SE, especially if you prefer something different for tonight. September 17, 2015
Super game! I have been super excited about this game, because I love Hidden Objects game. I am a new customer on Big Fish and but I've already played some of the games. And I have to admit that this is the best one! It has an amazing artwork, beautifully done scenes, fantastic and not at all easy for solving mini games which are interactive and multi-step. I enjoyed so much while solving all those tasks. I also like different stories about mystery women. And the storyline was exactly about one of these women - Bathory. So, the storyline was one of my favorite part. This game was even like a movie. Totally recommend this game to play! September 8, 2015
Bathory: The Bloody Countess is worthy of a game credit... The tittle of this game kind of gives away the story of this hidden object puzzle adventure game. The story of Elizabeth Bethory is for courageous and brave ones. Like your little sister. She has always been interested with the unknown and mysterious. That's how she became an archeologist. This is also how she ended up in Slovakia exploring the castle of the countess Bethory. This is also how she began to be tortured by nightmares with a dark figure. This is also how she disappeared when you came to visit her. She has been really excited about her discoveries regarding the countess. Now it is up to you to get familiar with the story of the countess and her castle to rescue your own sister. The game challenges you to go to a paralle fantasy world where magic and rituals are part of the reality. You will visit a number of beautiful locations with that cozy atmosphere of small villages in the mountains. The game features great art and challenging tasks. You will have to search for many items hidden in the scenes and solve quite a few puzzles. Don't forget to collect all the coins on your journey. They will make it possible for you to purchase things that will be helpful for the puzzles and riddles, also collecting coins allows you to 'skip' if you become frustrated. I found the mechanics of the game clumsy at best, yet I enjoyed it. If you absolutely need a walk through, there is one on 'youtube'. September 30, 2015
Challenging yet satisfying Warning! This is the kind of game you'll spend hours and won't even notice. The storyline is addictive. It's like you're watching a well-written AAA movie, but you are part of the story. It has a beautiful art work and you will be challenged! Finding those objects and unraveling the mysteries is completely satisfying! If you like detective stories with strong female characters, this is a must play! October 2, 2015
Amazing Game!!! Why I like SE games? They are usually made by small companies who don?t know the rules of the genre. And often invent something new. A couple of weeks ago these were skippable HOS, this time they are paid! OK, I agree, this is not the best polished game I?ve played, with spelling issues and mostly familiar mini-games. I give it five stars in advance for devs to make me wonder again with their next title. September 17, 2015
Great Game! First, I agree with the majority, who give 5 stars. This game is really fun and deserves the 5 stars rating. I love the straight forward HO& adventure aspect of this game. The number of HO scenes is huge. Finally a bit of a new view to hidden objects scenes. Absolutely lovely! Nice and clear with scenes that were, not only attractive, but interesting just to look around. The story is unusual and about mystery countess! Finally, I recommend this game! September 10, 2015
Addictive game Yes, the graphics is cartoonish but it looks good and different from what I've seen so far. I recommend not to skip the tutorial, for you may really miss the essence and lose your demo time in vain. It seemed boring at the beginning, but after searching through Rose's house you really get involved into the story. Then I just couldn't stop until the end of the trial hour. I am going to buy the full version and I am glad that I completed the demo. September 14, 2015
