Campfire Legends: The Hookman 3.8 5 16 16
Why has Campfire Legends not been reviewed yet? Because of the storyline it is important to play this series in sequence: The Hookman, The Babysitter, Last Act. The Hookman starts out with some girlfriends sitting around their campfire wanting to hear a spooky story. One of the girls begins an "urban legend" tale about The Hookman. But one of the others chimes in, saying that it is a true story of a family that was murdered years ago and they all are anxious to hear about it. That's where our fun begins... We find a young lady arriving at the cabin in the woods for a fun getaway. Her boyfriend is late, as he usually is, for everything, so she isn't yet concerned. Mom and Dad arrived earlier, but left a note on the cabin door saying they are out exploring. So now the girl is all alone and it is getting late. Creepy and baffling things begin happening. Having trouble entering the cabin at first, she finally succeeds and inside is where the creepiness escalates. The lights don't work, that means a trip to the basement. After restoring the electricity, she sees something bad happened there. Things are torn up and broken, scattered everywhere. So, she has no clue yet as to horror she will soon be dealing with who is out there lurking in the dark, scary woods. Now our HO fun, puzzles/games, challenges come into play. There is a lot of putting things back together, going back and forth, getting things to work again. A busy game. In my opinion it is very challenging, but not impossibly so. I imagine the experts will think it's a snap! I am intermediate, but pretty darn good at it, finally! The objects are very well hidden and not the usual way of using the found items, and the hint system is different. Difference is good, it takes away the ho-hums. You acquire hints, only 5 max at a time, by finding fireflies. You must remember to always search for them throughout the game, lest you totally run out of hints. They are quite small and blend well into the scenes, but not impossible to find. When help is needed just click on one of the bugs in your collection and it unlocks a hint. I was worried about all this at the start, but was able to get along fine with much hard thinking and few hints. Much easier really than it sounds. Actually, when I did use a hint I found another bug almost right away to replace it. I love everything about this game. The graphics are clear, the color good, the music is grim and fitting, good storyline. All the HO scenes, puzzles, interest factor, scary moments, challenge were excellent in my opinion. I like that there is a definite sequence to playing the games. Hopefully, you will enjoy as much as I did. For me, it was money well spent. P.S. I am 69 yrs oId, not ready yet to become a tired, bored old lady and I own approx. 500 games, maybe more. And why? you may ask, or not. Because, they make me think and challenge myself. They help keep my mind clear and strong, provide wonderful entertainment, take me to their fantasy worlds. Thanks, Big Fish, for keeping that spark in me bright and constant. Much love to you all...

A amazing and fun hidden object game. I was looking for new games to purchase and I was scrolling through the titles in the hidden object games when I came across this campfire legends. I have always enjoyed campfires so I found myself compelled to open the game. I was surprised there wasn't any ratings nor had the campfire games been advertised by big fish that I can recall as suggested games I would like etc. There are three of this series campfire legends, the hookman - campfire legends, the babysitter, and campfire legends, the last act. I played the free trials on both the hookman and the babysitter and I really loved the games. There is a lot to do hidden object which are not the normal find the objects and move on this one gives you other projects to do once you find the objects. and there are many puzzles which I found fun to do, You do not begin the game with the normal hints like most of the big fish games on these one's you must locate fireflies to earn your hints. After playing the second in the series on the trial I immediately purchased all three games. I am not going to go into the story line with you as upsydydaisy did a excellent job in describing the game to you in her review. I do have to say however that the story is really good- I really loved the campfire tales they discuss around the fire. There were numerous times the game made me jump. Don't let the fact that there hasn't been may reviews as of yet on this series for it is every bit worth purchasing and a lot of fun to play. Enjoy playing these games I know I am. I have over three hundred games and I am just glad I didn't let these pass me by. May 19, 2015
BASED ON FULL GAME PLAYED This is the first in a trilogy. It is an older game and I finished it in 2011. I have played MANY games by now and this is one of the only ones that actually frightened me out of my chair. (This part is near the end and not in the demo). This series still stands out as a favorite of mine. It can be challenging at times. This is a high quality series and the last one even offers more than many CE do for the SE price. The Last Act (#3, has a great screensaver, DL concept art, in game strategy guide and you can replay the amazing cut scenes.) In order to appreciate these games though, I would suggest playing them in order. I highly recommend this series. July 26, 2016
Think outside the box Loved this game and the sequels. This is not your usual HOG and it took me a while to get the hang of finding items but that was O.K. for me because I enjoy something different every once in a while. I liked the challenge of this game. The fireflies were a great hint idea because you could use some to point you in a direction or use your full complement to solve your problem. I always found more. Keep your eyes open and enjoy! May 4, 2016
A real challenge After about 3 weeks I finally finished this fun game using a walkthru and 3 videos. I ran out of the firefly hints early on so had to keep plugging away. This is the best of the campfire legend games but the other 2 are good too. There is no puzzle skip buttons so it is all up to the player. June 13, 2016
WOW I totally loved this game and now I see there are 2 more games like this on Bigfish. The sequel to this one is called "The Babysitter" and then the 3rd, is called, "The Last Act". These games are so unique, you really get into them. The voice overs and the art work are fantastic. It is also designed to scare you from time to time with some jump scares. These are great and I am glad I found them. Ill get them all. May 9, 2016
No lurid colors! It's worth 4 stars just because of the coloring. I am sooo tired of the garish colors so popular with the devs these days. The moment I see those neon colors while I'm shopping for a game I just move on. It's spooky enough to have made me jump a couple times and some of the puzzles are difficult enough that I needed help from youtube. That's better than the the simple minded same old same old. The most refreshing thing about the plot was that there actually was one and it was neither tired nor predictable. Sort of short but it kept me interested all the way through. Most games by the mainstream devs bore me so badly that I start skipping puzzles just to get it over with. So if you're tired of haunted hotels and castles and unicorns and purple moonlight you just might enjoy this. May 4, 2016
YES you want this game i have only been playing this for 30 mins and am so having a fun time. this game makes you think.......which i believe, is way more fun . was thinking just another seek and find game. not so .love how you need to find things in different areas to finish, each part of the game...............good one here....hope to see more like this...............GOOD JOB!

GATHER AROUND THE FIRE AND I'LL TELL YOU A STORY Wow, if you love a good story and fancy a decent challenge, then come and play this game. Now, this game is a little out of the norm. There are no modes of play, a journal or anything really. You are on your own. You have to collect little bugs as hints, if you need them. I absolutely loved the challenge. The graphics are very good - bright and colourful and kind of like reading a comic book. Do you remember the days of camping out and sitting around a camp fire with your friends with a torch under your chin telling horror stories? Well, you will love this story. I jumped a few times, then laughed, as I felt a bit of an idiot. Sound is good and there is creepy piano music to keep you company throughout the game. There are no hidden object games but there are plenty of mini-games to do. These can be challenging but not too frustrating. I did them all without any head banging. There are sliding tiles to put in the right place, getting the wires connected to the car, put pieces of paper back together, etc - plenty to do. There is a lot of moving around finding items you need but you are not travelling around to a lot of locations. You can't get lost or wondering where to go next. All up the game took me about 5 hours to do, but I wasn't playing fast (well, you can't anyway). This game is challenging but just keep an eye out for the little bugs, if you need them. I used 2 hints, but didn't need the rest. This game comes definitely recommended. I am now going to load down the next two episodes - 'Campfire Legends - The Babysitter' and 'Campfire Legends - Last Act'. DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU ... June 27, 2015
LIVING A NIGHTMARE Women are sitting around a campfire telling scary stories. When one of the campers finishes a story, another one speaks up and says that wasn't exactly how it happened. Despite the annoyance of the original storyteller, she begins to tell her version. Christine ends up at her parents' cabin for the weekend alone because her boyfriend is late showing up. Strange things start happening immediately. After restoring the electricity, she finds that the cabin has been ransacked. One thing she does right away is to fix the radio. Using it, she finds that a very dangerous man has escaped the local sanitorium. The demo ended as she tried to find the pieces of the phone to call the police. The HOS are woven into the story in an excellent fashion. For example, when you find the phone, you immediately get a visual list of parts that you must find to fix it. These parts can be anywhere in any of the scenes. I like this better than picking up something that sits in inventory forever until you finally get to the point in the game where you need to use it. The storyline is the center of the game, as opposed to just a vehicle to move among HOS. That makes me want to finish the game to see how it turns out. Considering there are 2 more games in the series, maybe it is a cliffhanger? Hints are acquired by finding and clicking on fireflies. A maximum of 6 can be accumulated. Using one firefly will give you a hint like telling you that you need to be in the bedroom. There is no map. You can exchange hints to purchase "tips" which I'm thinking are like mega hints, maybe taking you to the right location and pointing to the exact item you need to get. That's just a guess as I never found myself in a situation where I felt I needed a mega hint. This is an intriguing game to me, but always try before you buy. May 21, 2016
