Written Legends: Nightmare at Sea is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenging Deep Sea Adventure I love underwater themed games and this one went over and beyond my expectations. It was a long game for me and pretty bare-bones when it came to a helping hand, but that added even more fun to it. Davy Jones has always been an interesting high seas tale, so that prompted my interest. I loved the storyline. It was solid and easy to follow and was shrouded with sadness for all those lost, imprisoned souls. Just imagine being trapped there forever and aware of your situation. Only a story, I know, but still a horrid thought. The graphics were pretty basic but the different art style made them interesting and a little unusual. On my computer the scenes were smaller than normal but posed no problem with finding items, as they were all clear and crisp. The colors were excellent. I enjoyed the underwater locations and the characters. Although there were no voices, I thought it was suitable for taking place underwater and the characters being dead. I never skipped any of the written dialogue, afraid to miss something important to my progress and I read everything in all my games, never find it boring or waste of time. One thing not to my liking was the pathetic little map with all the back and forth involved. But I finally picked up a string of good luck finding what I needed. My pace quickened and I thankfully made it to the finish! I never want to give up so this was a big victorious moment that I quietly celebrated with my cat! In my opinion, this was a wonderful little game. It was full of challenging tasks and well hidden items, giving the opportunity to test your patience and memory skills. There were not many games but they were very good and for me, just challenging enough to keep frustration from moving in. The ending could have been a little better but it wasn't bad. Not too abrupt and kept with the storyline which is not the case with many games. I was happy to see the souls rising from the watery depths after Davy Jones was held to his promise after losing at his own game. I absolutely recommend this game. I certainly was not disappointed! God Bless....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoooooooooooooooo, lives-in-a-pineapple-under-the-sea?…Not Davy Jones! Bubbles, shark, octopus, coral gardens, sunlight beams and various wrecks of different sizes. Completely enjoyable, with great music! The TASKS list is very important in this game, because the HINT and MAP are only minimally useful. Not a beginner’s game. GRAPHICS: Underwater marvel. Loved the angles and sense of depth created with shipwrecks looming into the beyond. Stylized graphics that suit the game. Does not fill the whole screen. HOPS: Plenty. Will sparkle for you and the HINT will help you out here. Clearly visible objects. PUZZLES: Generally straight-forwards. SOUNDS: Fine, but not great. Music is good. The other control is mainly for mouse-click action. A lack of general ambient sounds, like bubbles etc. HINT: Will circle any area that has something for you to do, at any point. Won’t show you which item to use, or how to find the item if you don’t already have it. Scour the scenes top to bottom, and see when your cursor changes to find stuff. DIFFICULTY LEVELS: Only 1 mode of game play. MAP: Helps you get your bearings only. NOT travel and but will highlight an area you need to go to. INVENTORY: NOT lockable JOURNAL: Will hold the MAP, the TASKS and CLUES. CHARACTERS: They are Davy Jones, his barnacled skivvies and trapped souls. Pleasant intermittent interaction which helps you on your quests. No voice-overs or lip-sync; you read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I was entertained for several hours playing Written Legends: Nightmare at Sea. The graphics, the music, the story were superb! I love the fact that it has hints so if I'm stock in something I don't have to leave my game to find the walkthrough in a website. The objects were somehow easy to find. I love to play without stress and this game gave me a relaxing sensation after a hectic week of work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Malevolence of Davy Jones With the lure of a 50% off sale and being a pirate fan, I chose to give the trial version of this game a try. I was so engrossed by the game that it was a complete shock when my hour ran out. It will definitely be worth the price to continue and finish the game. Some of the music was eerily similar to POTCO which I've played for many years. The rest was calming and appropriate for an underwater adventure. I appreciated the lack of voice-overs while interacting with characters. I prefer to read the text at my own pace. The task log and map are very helpful. However, I did have issues with use of the Hint button outside of HOS. It led me to task completion areas and not to the missing links that I was seeking. There were 6 HOS during the first hour alone. I would rate them as being easy. Nothing is hard to find or hidden slightly off-screen. The ocean creatures were a welcome touch and I had a giggle at the pilot character being named Janeway. :P

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEARLY PERFECT Up until the very last part of the game, I really thought this was about the best game I've ever played. Everything worked and the Notes, Clues, and Map made it really easy to figure out where I was and where I needed to be. The mini games were not too hard and neither were the HOS. I rarely had to use the hint button, and only at the very end did I need to check out the walk through. I pretty much played it in one sitting, which may explain why, by the end of the game, I was not thinking as sharply as I should have been. When I have to refer to the walk through to figure out the next step, then my opinion of the game goes down a little. I hate not being able to figure out where to go to play the next HOS or puzzles. It's one thing to be unable to solve a puzzle or figure out how to use an inventory item and a whole other issue not knowing where to go to play next. The latter issue just drives me crazy. The storyline was great and the graphics very good. I never play with sound, so cannot comment on that area. All in all, an excellent game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game Except for Glitches It's a great game. I love the visual effects and puzzles but for some reason whenever I hit the "pause" button and resume the game, it freezes up! I have to exit out of the game and re-enter it to continue playing. Please fix it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS A GREAT GAME!! I loved this game. It is a steal at $2.99. The game had a good story line and there wasn't too much going back and forth to complete tasks. The HOGs were clear as were all graphics, can't say anything about music because I always turn the music off. The only turn offs were: 1) a lot of reading, 2) not enough HOGs. I would highly recommend this game!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An underwater adventure I love games that are under the sea! The sceenery is colorful and the graphics look exceptional. Your character needs to talk to the other characters in the game to get hints and find out where to go next. There is a lot of backtracking and wandering around but the game has directional hints available to aid you if needed. This game was so much fun and i really enjoyed it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lots of fun to play A free map is included with this SE, and it highlights areas which lead you to the next step so it's very helpful! The map and subtle sparkles took a lot of the stress out of the game and eliminated the need for hints. The underwater graphics were beautiful. I didn't mind the characters repeating themselves, and the helpful "lost souls" added a feeling of community to the game. HO scenes were delightfully simple, even if objects were replaced on subsequent visits. A minor complaint, some of the adventure tasks required items that I had already used, gloves, an axe, a wrench, but I had to go find new ones again. Tasks could have benefited from a little more imagination, or at least let us use more the similar items over again. The pesky octopus was a cute addition though. The adventure itself was nice, I enjoyed the storyline even if I've heard similar ones before, and the tasks made logical sense so there was a feeling of accomplishment after completing something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Game! This game was the most fun I've had in a while. The story line was great, the puzzles challenging but not too-o-o hard, and it lasted just long enough not to get boring. The graphics were the best I've seen in any game and the sound effects and music were awesome! Best game I've played in a long time!
