Phantasmat: Behind the Mask is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masked Madness This review is for the completed game of the PC Standard Edition version. GAMEPLAY: This is the most important category, obviously, and it was a great game. I never felt bored, but was always involved in using my brain to solve puzzles. I really loved the Custom mode for difficulty because I like some things to be very difficult (long refreshes for hint/skip, lack of sparkles, etc.) and other things to be very easy (in particular, I hate miss click penalties in HO scenes as sometimes I like just clicking on things I like), so the custom mode was very refreshing! One thing I didn't really like was the fact that there was sometimes only one item to find or a very small number. I like switching from looking for one item to another, and coming back to harder items multiple times, which doesn't work with shorter lists as well. That said, I did like the originality of many of the HO scenes and tasks. I also really enjoyed the puzzles and the special items that you had to create from multiple parts. STORYLINE I rated the story as 4/5, but I'd really put it as 4.5. I really enjoyed meeting the members of the Ward family, but some of them were fairly cliche, and the ending felt a little abrupt. That said, I was really invested in learning about the family and putting everything together. The tasks for the game meshed well with the story, and the types of rooms and puzzles for each character were appropriate and interesting as well. LENGTH/VALUE: I got this at a very low $2.99 so I found it to be an excellent value, particularly as I felt it to be one of the longer HOPAs I've played recently. I definitely feel like I got my money's worth! I'm not sure whether the length was actually longer or if I just spent more time on it because I was enjoying myself and didn't get frustrated or bored, but either way, it points to good value. AESTHETICS: I put this last because I don't feel like a good judge of these things. The child's voice was very well done, particularly once you get to the very end. I did not care for the bugs on some of the screens because I hate bugs. The first time one appeared, I actually thought it was a real bug and screamed. I guess that points to good quality, though, so I can't really fault it. Nothing else really stood out. Final Assessment: Definitely a good buy and highly recommended even at a higher price than what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weird in all the right ways! I'm just about halfway through this game, and I'm really enjoying it. There's just the perfect balance of creepiness, mystery, surrealism and murder to make this a perfect dark game for anyone in a dark-game kind of mood... But at the same time, it never leans too heavily on any one genre. As I'm going through the game, the various tangents are coming together into a weird but playful tale. And amazingly, it has managed to avoid being depressing, despite the heavy themes... maybe that's because it has a vaguely Alice-in-wonderland ambiance as well? I won't even attempt to describe the abstract story - it's hard to do that without ruining it - but let's just say that many have attempted the same type of thing before and failed. Thankfully, Eipix seems to have mastered the art of keeping us in suspense and they've resisted all temptations to be predictable in Behind the Mask. Eipix seems to be going through a bit of a revival ATM; this is the second game of theirs that's grabbed my attention and held it, in the past few weeks. The level of challenge stays at the right place all the way through, and there are plenty of small twists added to the mini games and HO scenes to keep the player engaged in them. I especially liked the game that involved moving all kinds of numbers and symbols into the right places on a board. It needed strategy and patience, but was engaging and set an easy pace. If you're a fan of the dark genres AND want a bit of fun, then try this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantasmat series is alive, and scary as heck! I haven't written a review in a while, because I didn't think any were worthy of writing one, but this game was so well done, I had to give my 2 cents. Totally redeemed all the other Phantasmats I was not happy with. Such an interesting plot, and so creepy If you're a scaredy cat, do not play this at night! Story had a good flow with a variety of hidden object scenes, and puzzles. Was scared that there was going to be constant back tracking, but luckily that was only in the first couple of rooms. Was a little disappointed at the ending for the SE. Seemed to cut short, but my fault; I didn't see the CE until after I bought the SE. Next time. Totally worth it, especially since I got it on credit :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Big Fish customer since 2004 - this game creeped me out Wow! I have played a LOT of creepy/scary games, but this one REALLY creeped me out. I was actually jumpy while playing and it is gruesome! Fantastic game. Characters are equally frightening. A must play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a ward family reunion i try never to miss my family's reunion but this one i wouldn't want to go to. more power to her and attending it. she doesn't know any of these people and is meeting them for the first time and they are all strange in their own way........very strange. you notice things are not right as you continue the game. the family members disappear at will, with no trace of them left. then you see them another time, hmmmmm. many levels and mini-games. there is a custom level and an interactive map. a sequel i am sure. this series seems well-liked!!!
