Fear for Sale: The Dusk Wanderer Collector's Edition 4 5 17 17
If You Fail The Challenge Of The Labyrinth You Stay With The Shadows For Eternity! It'd been 40 years since Edgar and his fiance Helen disappeared mysteriously. Edgar's sister Veronica Johnson, fears she might be losing her mind, because she just took a picture of Helen peeking out of a window from her family's home, which has been abandoned and boarded up for years! Once she compared this picture to a picture of Helen taken just before her disappearance, she is utterly shocked, because the pictures are practically identical! Helen hasn't changed in the least bit, Helen, hasn't aged in over 40 years! Emma has her hands full with this, now you see it, now you don't case, but all roads seem to lead to Helen's friend, Ben Carmer, who just so happens to be the last person to see the couple before they disappeared without a trace.....or was there? Fear For Sale has always been a hit or miss type of game, it's either really awesome, or kind of a dud, but I have only two complaints with The Dusk Wanderer. First of all, the storyline is nothing new, in fact, I was able to figure out the plot within about 20 minutes, not just the plot, but exactly who, what, where, when and pretty much how. Secondly, the graphics are very poor. One of the features I have always loved in Fear For Sale is that they always seem to have top notch crystal clear computer generated graphics, they just didn't impress me this time. As with all other games in this series, you earn points for just about everything you do. As you earn these points, you will progress in rank status starting as a Cub Reporter then advance to Reporter, Investigative Journalist and so forth for a total of 8 rankings. For me personally, it doesn't thrill me one way or the other, I have no intention of competing with my friends to acquire a better score. This series is also known for their Collections that are in Categories, this time the categories are: Against the clock, Damsel in distress, Adam's legacy, Timepieces, and Hope and redemption, each category has 5 collectibles. This Collector's Edition also has 34 Beyond Objects and the usual Achievements to earn as well, which make this CE well worth the extra money because of the extra CE bling. The Hidden Object Scenes are fairly typical scenes for this series, however, they are breaking out of their shell a little bit, offering keywords in sentences to find, replacing items back into the scene,finding items using your phone, interactive list finds, and silhouetted shape finds. There are also several smaller zoom zone HOP's as well as the one's requiring you to find a handful of fragments or parts scattered around the entire scene. The Mini Games are entertaining, some are super simple, others a little more intense, but all seem to be doable. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Dress a mannequin to replicate the picture shown. 2) Move the Edgar's figurine next to Helen's by selecting directional arrows to move Edgar. Helen's character moves in the opposite direction of Edgar's. 3) Place torn picture fragments in a book. 4) Use the cypher to enter the correct code. 5) Follow tangled hoses to their matching color coded valves. 6) Find matching symbols to climb up the rope by selecting 2 rocks at a time. 7) Connect the stars to make a constellation using the given number of lines. 8) Pick the colored parts of the picture and place those colored items to their correct places in the scene. 9) Adjust levers according to the picture clue. 10) Turn the fragments of the image in such a sequence as not to block each subsequent step. 11) Select the blue symbol parts to create a symbol that the compass points to. This Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 11 Concept Art pictures, 3 Screensavers, 4 Music Soundtracks, 25 Collectibles (5 collectibles in 5 categories) 9 Achievements, 26 Hidden Object Scenes, 28 Mini Games, 35 Beyond Objects, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy the Fear!

My Review is based on completing the Main Game. I really enjoyed this game. It's relatively easy as opposed to mind boggling, more like the two previous CE games earlier this week, which suited me just fine. The graphics were good with many darker scenes but then again we are in an underground labyrinth. Inventory - I liked the fact that quite a few items were left in the inventory to be used 2 or three times. Map - It is very good in my opinion especially as it indicates if you have found every collectible and morphing object in the scene, it also transports you quickly. 26 HOS - They are quite varied and were very interactive, some are visited twice. 28 Mini Games - relatively easy but they get harder as you progress through the game. For the last one I nearly pressed the Skip button as it was 'driving me up the wall' but I tried one more time and actually solved it. 35 Storied Objects (aka morphs), they are all different items. 5 Sets of collectibles with 5 in each set. 3 Cube Parts - I'm not really sure what this is exactly. I did collect one cube but that was part of the game, or was it? 9 Achievements - most of which are for not using hints in the HOS or the Skip button for Mini Games, and others for finding all the morphs and collectibles. Others are specific to the game. October 1, 2016
I WAS SO ENGROSED I BARELY FINISHED THE DEMO, OUTSTANDING I love the Fear for Sale series and the designers made this one exceptional. From the very beginning you are immersed into the spirit world to unlock the secrets of a couples' disappearance years ago. The attention to detail always brings a smile to my face, so click on everything to find out what it does. This was a super fun game keeping my tummy in knots. I barely finished the demo in time forgetting where I was. The visuals are awesome and the music complimented the theme. The mini-games and HOPS were standard, but I love how they make you work to get into them. Indeed, they were purposeful and unique to the game. I felt it was challenging enough for me and kept me focused. The storyline is exceptional and of course I gotta know how it ends. This is a must buy for me to add to my collection. I highly recommend this game to all. Thanks, Mia. October 1, 2016
A LOVE TRIANGLE OR SOMETHING MORE? As is always the case you play the Fear for Sale games as journalist Emma Roberts from Fear for Sale magazine. Over the years you have gained quite a reputation and now you are off and running to solve another paranormal mystery. In The Dusk Wanderer you?ve been contacted by Veronica Johnson whose brother Edgar disappeared with his fianc Helen over 40 years ago. The strange thing is that Veronica saw Helen in the boarded up house that was her family home ? one that is soon to be demolished. Veronica was so surprised that she took a picture and sure enough it is Helen. Now, the even bigger question than Helen?s reappearance is why she hasn?t aged and where is Edgar? Delve into this terrific new Fear for Sale game and see if you can find the answer to the questions so that Veronica can finally find out what happened to her brother. Although some find that the graphics are not quite as good as in other Fear for Sale games, I really haven?t noticed a difference. I think the few times there is a bit of mistiness in the scenes it is probably intentional, perhaps to emphasize the storyline. The gameplay modes include a very odd custom feature that really, IMHO seems useless and it does not offer the ability to turn off the tutorial. I am sure there are many ?seasoned? HOPA players that get as annoyed as I do when that tutorial box pops up at the beginning of a game. Your tools include an interactive map that you find early in the game. The thing I like about the map is that is shows a star on each scene once you have found all the collectibles and beyond objects. You also have a unique phone that has ?ghost busting? properties. Sometimes tools become annoying or are thought of as gimmicks but the phone app seems to fit well into the storyline without becoming irritating. The HOP scenes are nothing new and if you have played other games from this developer they will seem familiar. That being said, the scenes are well-designed and it is fun to find or replace items in the varying scenes, some of which are also multi-tiered. There is a storybook scene that seems new for this developer but I?m not certain. At any rate, I enjoyed all of the HOPS I have encountered thus far. The puzzles are easy but they are still fun. I have only encountered one that slowed me down a bit but even that one was entertaining. What I particularly enjoy about the puzzles is that they fit well into the storyline. I think that even those gamers who don?t care for puzzles might enjoy solving the ones in The Dusk Wanderer. The CE version of the game includes 25 collectible objects that complete 5 different sets and 35 morphing beyond objects to find. Yes there are 9 multi-level achievements to earn as well. I guess technically it is an achievement because you collect points that increase your reporting expertise as you play through the game. The standard extras include a strategy guide, bonus chapter, 9 wallpapers, 9 concept artwork, 3 screensavers, and 16 music tracks. The Fear for Sale games are ones that I almost always love and they come from a developer who I consider to be one of the best, with games that are always top-notch. I?ve been playing The Dusk Wanderer almost all morning and, IMHO, it gets better the further I get into it. I don?t want to give away the whole storyline because I want to let you discover it for yourself should you decide to purchase either the CE or SE. Since I always purchase the CE of a game, I am not sure how much they change when the SE is released but The Dusk Wanderer has a lot of entertainment to offer regardless of which version you choose. Yes, the storyline is probably familiar but I like the way this developer tells a story and all of the details they put into their games. It is fun to click on most items in a scene simply to see what happens, which is probably the reason why it takes me so long to complete a game. Nightmare Cinema is perhaps the only game in the series that is better than the Dusk Wanderer, but again it is only my opinion. Even though I love this game, please try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy. October 1, 2016
Fun Game Lots of items to find and use as well as HOGS. Graphics were very good. Morphing objects, collections - good storyline. This game was well organized and had a few scary little creatures. Mini games were good and moderately challenging October 7, 2016
Another FEAR FOR SALE Game Makes A Home Run!! I was offered to play this game months ago and was wondering how long it would take for it to be released. I am glad that it has finally surfaced, as I have every 'Fear For Sale' game and will be adding this one to my collection as well. It's innovative, compelling, and lives up to the previous ones, though not quite as good as Phantom Tide, Endless Voyage, or The House on Black River (IMO). PROS: 1. An interactive map that shows whether you've collected the morphing objects/collectibles or not. 2. Music is interesting and fits each scene appropriately. 3. Good voice overs. 4. Within each scene, most of the objects are interactive when you click on them. 5. Interesting HOS. 6. The morphing objects etc., were sometimes hard to locate (which I think is a +. We all want a 'challenge', right?) 7. Just the right amount of FEAR. CONS: 1. The puzzles/mini-games could perhaps be a little bit more challenging (although I'm not a fan of either). 2. Some of the cutscenes weren't as clear as I'd like to see. 3. The storyline is a bit confusing (at least to me) All in all, if you're a fan of any of the 'Fear for Sale' games, please check this one out as well. It will probably take a place in your library/collection. October 4, 2016
A LABYRINTH OF HIDDEN FAMILY SECRETS OVERVIEW: What happened to Edgar Johnson and his fianc, Helen Larsen? With Halloween approaching, BFG has gotten into the ?spirit? of the season with this 5-star spook fest, ?possessed? with hidden family secrets. It has been forty years since this couple disappeared and lately Helen has been seen, not having aged since her disappearance. Can she still be alive or is she a ghost? You, as investigative journalist, Emma Roberts, are off to Europe to investigate. After encountering a confused and possibly possessed Helen, your investigation leads you to a forlorn want-to-be suitor of Helen, Ben Carmer. He was the last person to see these two alive before they disappeared. Was he involved in their disappearance? While investigating Ben?s tragic past and his familial estate (which holds a labyrinth of secrets), many questions will be answered concerning this decades old mystery. I find this game to be the best of this series so far. I do not particularly like the graphics. I feel they are slightly blurry and one-dimensional in some parts of the demo; however, the gameplay more than compensates for this. The story is very well-written. The pace is excellent as you sleuth throughout the Carmer estate looking for clues. There are more puzzles than HOP scenes; however, I feel both are thematic and nicely done. You also have the option to play a jigsaw puzzle instead of the HOP scenes. There are quite a few collectibles including 25 collectibles of various types and 35 ?beyond objects? (morphing objects). Both are not easy to locate making the game somewhat challenging. You can also collect points so you can ascend to the upper ranks in the world of journalism. HOP SCENES: There are 26 HOP scenes in the game and they are varied and interactive. there is a unique replacement scene. There is a storybook scene in which you locate items in sentences with highlighted letters. There are also a couple of silhouette scenes. In one of these scenes you ?obliterate? ghosts using the flash feature on your cellphone. There is a list of items which includes a small mini-puzzle, which is a nice touch. There is also a multiple-step scene in which you locate items and replace them back into the scene. PUZZLES: There are 28 puzzles in the game. There are quite a variety of puzzles which are all easy but creatively designed. They include two maze puzzles. One involves the characters from the ?love triangle.? The other maze puzzle is one which involves moving through a maze to restore a picture. There are several matching puzzles, a jigsaw puzzle to restore a photograph, a replacement puzzle (which is more of a HOP scene) and an assembly puzzle used to create symbols. The best puzzles for me are the dot-to-dot puzzles which involve creating two constellations by connecting stars! LEVELS: Casual, Normal, Hard, Custom Hints: 10 to 35 seconds Skips: 10 to 50 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game Map is given to you at the start of the game 9 Achievements Collect 25 items ? 5 each in 5 categories: (1) Against the rules (2) Damsel in distress (3) Adam?s legacy (4) Timepieces and (5) Hope for redemption Collect points and attain 8 journalist ranks Morphing objects: Collect 35 beyond objects Strategy guide - 52 pages 9 Wallpapers, 11 Concept Art, 3 Screensavers, Music HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE: HOP SCENES: You can opt to play a puzzle instead of the HOP scene. A. Mini-HOP scene. Find 6 missing boards to build a ladder. B. Replacement. Place items given to you into the correct location within the scene. C. Storybook. Locate items mentioned in highlighted letters within sentences. D. Silhouette. Using a camera phone ? locate and destroy 5 ghosts. E. Silhouette items. F. List of items to locate. There is a mini-maze puzzle within this scene G. Multiple step. (1) List of items to locate. (2) Return the discovered items back into the scene PUZZLES: Puzzle Rating: (1) Extremely easy 2) Easy (3) A little difficult or time consuming (4) Moderately difficult (5) Difficult A. Maze puzzle. Move the figures of Edgar and Ben Carmer to the center of the maze where Helen is located. Moving Edgar causes Ben to move in the opposite direction. Rating: 2 B. Jigsaw puzzle. Restore a photograph by places pieces into positon. Rating: 1 C. Cryptogram puzzle. Replace letters with numbers according to a code to open a lock. Rating: 1 D. Matching puzzle. Match up a series of valves to turn off water. Rating: 1 E. Matching puzzle. Match up symbols under bricks to climb up a rope. 3X Rating: 1 F. Matching puzzle. Match up like items to open up a locked portal. Rating: 1 G. Dot-to-dot puzzle. Create two star constellations by ?connecting the dots? within a certain number of moves. 2X Rating: 2 H. Replacement puzzle. Locate colored items and place them into the proper position on a B&W picture. (To me, more of a HOP scene than a puzzle). Rating: 1 I. Matching puzzle. Match up buttons on a sound machine with those on a phone. Rating: 1 J. Maze puzzle. Uncover pieces of a picture by pressing on a series of blocks without retracing your steps. 3X Rating: 2 K. Assembly puzzle. Choose parts of symbols and combine them to create a full symbol. Rating: 2 October 1, 2016
Fear for Sale: The Dusk Wanderer Colector's Edition Another great game in the series to play October 2, 2016
Ghost, Spirit, Phantom, or Flesh and Blood? Forty years ago, Veronica's brother, Edgar, and his girlfriend, Helen, disappeared after going to visit friend Ben one evening. The police suggested the couple had run away, but no evidence of their fate had ever been found. Now Veronica has called in your reporter character, Emma, to investigate. Veronica saw Helen's face through the partially boarded window of Helen's old home. No one has lived there since Helen's parents died. Was it Helen? Veronica took a photo that shows Helen still looking as she did forty years ago. Time to investigate! Good stuff: HOPs are varied with a puzzle alternative, mini-games are fairly easy, VO's and characterizations are good, artwork is well done, and the story is engaging. There is an assortment of CE bling and morphing objects along with small groups of other collectibles. Bad stuff: The mini-games and puzzles were not particularly challenging. This is the ninth game in the series. I have seven of the earlier games. I will be getting this one to add to my collection. The series embraces good stories and, while some game mechanics are not stellar, overall the effort is worth four stars and a buy. Even better, this serie's entry is not prey to as much of the egregious lack of logic in so many of the new games. Try the Demo and see if you agree. October 2, 2016
Now you see me, now you don't! Based on the demo played in custom mode. Many years ago a young woman and her fiance disappeared, not be seen or heard from again. Until just recently. She was seen looking exactly as she did the day she disappeared. Which is impossible, considering it happened 40 years ago. You, the detective, are hired to find out where she is, where she's been and what's going on. I was having a lot of fun playing this game. There is a tutorial but it isn't needed. If I was playing the demo but didn't know the name of the game or dev's name I would think I was playing a Fear for Sale game because the formula is that much like the last one I played. There is a 3 page, transportable map and the demo covers all the locations on the 1st page. There are more locations on the 2nd and 3rd pages than the 1st one so it's a decent length game, plus there's a bonus chapter. The visuals and sound are exactly as you would expect from a Fear for Sale game as well. There's all the standard CE bling - morphing objects, collectibles, achievements, music, concept art and wallpapers. I really enjoyed the HOGs. They feel like they are connected to the game rather than a list of random objects that you have to find for no particular reason. I also like how the mini games are incorporated into the overall game. They are definitely part of the game flow and enhance game play tremendously. I didn't come across any hard mini games in the demo at all. One aspect of this Fear for Sale that I loved was so many items in each scene can be interacted with. Try clicking on the crows on the title page, or the octopus on the fountain, and you'll see what I mean. It's like that throughout the demo and probably throughout the game and it's just a lot of fun seeing what is going to do something and what that something will be. If this was not 60% off weekend I would be waiting til the SE comes rather than get the CE. I know it has all the bells and whistles but, for some reason, it doesn't strike me as a CE worthy game. Fortunately I'm able to get the CE at near SE price so, yes, I'm going for it and I recommend you try it and see if you want to take a little splurge too. October 1, 2016
