Scarlett Frost, specialist in the dark arts, has been summoned to a luxurious and remote theatre in the snowy Italian Alps. Could it be that the infamous and diabolical Hapsburg Cube has been found and purchased by the sinister theatre proprietor, Dr. Corvis? The cube is said to imprison a powerful and ancient Babylonian demon that would wreak hellish destruction if the cube should break. In a moment of desperate confusion the cube breaks and the demon bursts forth into the souls of the Dr. Corvis and his young Daughter Bethany. The ancient theatre in the lonely winter mountains becomes an arena of spiritual war, between the darkest forces of the underworld and the cunning and esoteric mind of Scarlett Frost. But Scarlett soon finds out that the only way to fight a demon this powerful is to become possessed by one herself. Only then can she acquire a ticket to the Theatre of the Absurd.

Customer Reviews
Theatre of the Absurd Collector's Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 131.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First game I felt like reviewing I like that this game is darker then most. The puzzles were complicated but not in an annoying way. The story was pretty cool and I liked the occultish tint it had. I also think that, in one of the hidden object scenes, the puzzlebox from the Hellraiser movies is there which is more then awesome. The only thing I didn't like was that it needed to be longer and the story more explorable. I hope there are sequels or even prequels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! I love hidden object games. BUT, this one has outdone them all!!!! Not only are the graphics fantastically realistic but the story is great - it actually has a true storyline it follows. This is one that everyone should try!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Macabre Atmosphere Hits: - The horror theme is really well done. The visuals can be disturbing and the sound reinforces the feeling of unease. Love the creepy writing on the woman's arm and the deteriorating environments. The developers did a great job with this. - The hidden object scenes provided at least some level of challenge. They're still too easy for my taste, but at least there were a couple of tricky ones. It seems like recent HOGs have become ridiculously easy. - Great price for the CE on tablets. It's a shame Big Fish still charges so much for the PC versions of these games. I would much rather play them on the PC, but iOS/Android versions are 75% cheaper! Misses: - The non-HO puzzles are way too easy. I really wish developers could figure out a way to scale puzzles with the chosen difficulty level. I miss being challenged in these kind of games. - CE bonus content is not worth the price. If you like your HOGs on the creepy side, definitely check this one out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an exciting terrific game! Couldn't figure out why the ratings weren't higher on this game. Loved the cut scenes, esp. opening scene and just the way the developers laid out this game, the voice overs, the drama and the hos scenes. The game cover didn't really inspire me, but the game itself is very exciting, dark and fun! Kind of unusual. Must give this game a chance. This game reminds me somewhat of Empress of the Deep 2, Song of the Blue Whale, another Silverback game I really enjoyed playing. I just love their games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic dark macabre HOPA This is a fantastic creepy macabre scary game! Definitely on the darker side, not for kids. The graphics are gothic, dark and macabre (these are good things to me). Can't comment on music or voiceovers cause I always turn these off. Good HOS with authentic items. Minigames also have that gothic twist. Good CE length and bonus game is just as good and blends well with the regular game. Highly recommended if you like gothic games! Way to go Silverback hope you make more like this! And hope MCF goes back in this direction soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining HO Adventure game with interesting scenes I loved this game even though there are more HOS than I like. Interesting scenes that were great to just look at, I like the elevator technique and easy navigation. The strategy guide is OK but it doesn't tell you how to get to the location which is a drawback. I wasn't impressed with the quality of the HOS but loved the dark theme on some of them. Most puzzles are very easy. Overall, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is for the main game i liked it. while i did used hints to figure out where to go, i did not used the strategic guide once. i needed hints to figure out where to go next...there is a lot of movement back and forth which sometimes took me time to find. when i got to the bonus game, there were no hints and fewer instructions. it didn't take me long to stop playing the bonus game! the strategy guides was not much help either. i think only expert players could handle it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible horror game, simply amazing!! What an incredible game!! It is an horror show with demons etc. but I loved every minute of it. It is such a visual work of art. It's incredible. I loved the voices overs. I loved the puzzles & the hidden objects were a bit hard to find at times but I didn't care. It had me from the beginner. I was completely into this other world & was never bored. I didn't want it to end. I even enjoyed looking at the art work which I never do at the end of the game. I also usually turn down the sounds but they were perfect for the mood of the game. I found her arm hard to read but I eventually got use to it. It is by far one of my favorites games. I played it 3 times & hate to delete it but have to move on to my other games. Great job to the people who made this piece of art. It will so well done. Silvia B
