Nightmare Realm Collector's Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Story I really enjoyed this game. You play as Uncle Peter and you have to save your niece. There is a brief opening scene which sets the back story for the game. The graphics are excellent, the iHOS are fun to play, the mini games are fun, the music is not intrusive. There are no voice overs, which was fine with me. The story is interesting and the game moves along nicely. The ending to the main game was satisfying and the bonus chapter filled in the one question left during the game. You have to collect origami pieces as you play the game, which was fun. I really enjoyed this game and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardcore is HARD!! Game is good fun, different. Storyline is good, different; however I got confused between the end of the main story and the bonus. WHEN WAS EMILY RESCUED?? Puzzles in hardcore are really hard. You have no instructions telling you what to do; you have to do trial and error, until you hit it! They were great though, different; a good challenge. Graphics were good, except the HO spots were quite cluttered! And you do get some sparkles on the HO spots, which I didn't like! No voice, no jump map. It does tell you where the tasks are, though. I thought the game length and the bonus was pretty good, but I think that the bonus story could have flowed a little smoother. I thought that I had finished several times only to find more to do. I enjoyed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very good macabre CE I really liked this game, despite the sappy plot line, it was saved by the dark side of the game! Good hidden object scenes, moderately hard games. Wish the bonus content had been developed into the main game and vice versa. Loved the little lizard! Hidden object gamers should like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Story Line and Lots of Fun I really loved this one - Graphics are outstanding with very creative motifs. The music is ok. I found myself turning it down mid-way through. Unique activities in the HOS scenes were woven directly in as part of the story line which was a nice twist. The pace was fast with a sense of urgency to get the next object. If you like to relax, take your time to mosey along taking in the scenery, this is not the game for you. Things move fast. The emphasis on story line until the very end reminded me more of an old style adventure game with a sprinkling of mini-games and HOS for good measure. As the game neared the end the designers kept the fun going and did not just call in the final scenes by having the player laboriously schlepping from one HOS to the next until the clock ran out. The mini-puzzles were consistently clever but easy and quick to complete. One that was solved by using lines from a poem I found particularly fun - but still very easy. At one point I took a wrong turn and got out of sequence with the story line. Things started acting a little wacky and it required a trip to the Strategy Guide to get back on track. For the bonus play, which flowed well with the story, I found myself consulting the Strategy Guide a number of times as what to do next was not obvious. One irritant that I have run across with a few games. but really noticed when playing this particular game - It was unusually easy to accidentally exit a HOS or other scene when trying to click on an object. That one little pet peeve aside, this one I definitely recommend for fun factor, graphics, and, creativity. Well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing game if you forgo the familial sadness. Play on hard mode, the game still helps you and you'll have more fun! Little slow & sad in the beginning, but GO for it! You WILL get sucked in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game and visually stunning! The graphics in the game are gorgeous, the music fits the mood and theme of the game, and the game plays in widescreen on Mac, so the player can appreciate the full effect of the artwork. There's a good balance of HOGs and puzzles. Some interactive items in some of the HOGs. Puzzles aren't too difficult. I don't recall getting stuck on any of them actually. Journal has the typical diary for notes, as well as map and tasks list. There are 33 origamis to find, which unlocks one of the games more interesting extras. The story starts with a car accident and a dark-cloaked entity coming for your husband. Then it jumps four years to your daughter's seventh birthday, when she's abducted by the same figure coming out of one of her drawings. You have to go into her drawing to find her. Her uncle Peter comes with you but is soon rendered useless. You're then separated entirely and you have to continue on to save your daughter alone. This is a dual mode HOPA: sparkles, faster help and tutorial in Casual; no sparkles or tutorial and longer hint recharges in Expert. It's a good length and took me a few sessions to complete, maybe about 5 hours total. The bonus game details what Uncle Peter got up to after he was separated from the main characters and takes you through a nightmare landscape that he needs to escape. There are only a few locations to explore, but the artwork is top notch, as with the rest of the game, and there's lots to do. It took me about 1.5 hours to complete, so a very good length for a bonus game, and one of the more compelling bonus games I've played on any CE game. It adds some background info on the dark-cloaked figures but isn't essential to the core game for those who decide to wait for the SE. Other extras - concept art, wallpapers (a higher number than other games offer), music files (can be saved) and instructions for creating 8 different origamis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game, glitchy on iPad I couldn't figure out how to leave a review for the iPad version of this game (sorry), so I'm weighing in here. First off, for everyone, the game itself is a lot of fun. I thought the story was interesting enough and was well-integrated throughout the game. Graphics were appealing and the puzzles/HOS were fun--not super challenging but not so easy that you get bored after a few seconds. I thought it was enjoyable and flowed well--overall a really nice game. My only issues with the game are specifically related to gameplay on the iPad. (1) it was too often very frustrating to try drag an object where you wanted it to go to complete an action (for example, dragging a wrench over a bolt)--I couldn't figure out if the game was tracking where my finger was on the screen or where the item was on the screen (because they were often in two different places), and on too many occasions I had to drag an item 6 or 7 times within the same little area to get it to work. The other, more frustrating, problem is that I'm not able to move past a certain point in the bonus chapter. I get to a point where I'm supposed to retrieve an item, and it just isn't there. I know it's not user error--I clicked on the "hint" and it told me to go retrieve the item, I checked the strategy guide and saw that I hadn't missed any steps, and I even played the entire full game over again under a different profile, so I could start the bonus chapter over, and I followed the strategy guide exactly step-by-step, and still the item wasn't there when it was supposed to be. I'm sad because I really want to finish this game and see the rest of the story!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from STARTS SLOW; GETS BETTER AS YOU PROGRESS STORY: is slow to develop. The daughter, Emily, disappears into a drawing which suddenly “poofs” (i.e., a small explosion-like feature) and you also find that her drawings in the hallway are burning at the same time. You have to go through the drawing through which she disappeared and find her drawings in order to save her. Her uncle is there to help you. Ending was rather sudden (Emily had a surprise happen to her). Game took a little over 3 hours. MOVING FORWARD: Emily’s uncle joins in the hunt to rescue Emily’s paintings, and thus Emily. You’ll encounter minor catastrophes along the way (boy, can the uncle stay under water for a long time). Every time you find a painting, you have to return to the house and hang it, look at Emily’s portrait in the master bedroom and gather a new tool to help in further exploration. The transitions to different location is logical and you should have no trouble finding your way around. HOS: are done in a complementary color palette. Objects are easily found and the HOS are interactive. PUZZLES are widely varied in type and difficulty. I did find it difficult to find the rope for capturing the dog and ended up consulting the W/T; but other than that, I was able to solve all the puzzles. Not too much hand-holding, but progress is still straightforward and holds no surprises on what to do next. It was great fun making the healing potion for the factory master on behalf of the witch doctor. OTHER STUFF: Collect the 33 origami to unlock a special content. This is the 2nd time I’ve played and I’ve yet to find all the origami. Maybe I should look at the W/T next time. Hints take about 40 seconds and skips close to 3 minutes to recharge. Expert mode takes even longer. Diary has the story plus clues and the map showing active locations and points of interest (map is not interactive though – but is not a direct hindrance because there are not that many locations needed for you to backtrack too far). SUMMARY: Good game for an afternoon of relaxation. Lovely scenes interspersed with drab locations (which seem to be the case as you initially enter into the “poofed” painting). Actions are easy to understand. Animation is fantastic. Music is appropriate to the scenes. The SE also has an origami collection, but I don’t think that it has the special content. Still, if you like to collect things, you should like either the CE or the SE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game! I thought the graphics were good, and really not that many HOG scenes for a hidden object game. The puzzles were not that hard. The storyline had been done before, but the ending was a surprise and even made me tear up. Very good game.
