Big Fish Editor's Choice! This title was chosen for its high standard of quality and amazingly positive reviews from our Game Club beta testers.

It's the end of the world... at least in Oakville. Find out what's really happening in a town where everyone seems to be missing, and a strange mystic is warning citizens of the coming apocalypse. As fans of the Phantasmat series know, it's hard to tell who's really dead and who's really alive in this world. The eerie continuation comes from Eipix, makers of the popular Final Cut and Myths of the World games! Play a new variety of puzzles and hidden-object games, including interactive morphing scenes, silhouettes, and multiple zoom HOPs. See what our Beta testers had to say:

“What an excellent installment to the Phantasmat series. Everything I have come to expect from Eipix games was there. I love these guys!”  - Cora, Beta Tester

“Eipix never lets us down. This new addition to the Phantasmat series is deliciously creepy - can't wait for the release :)”  - Selma, Beta Tester

Phantasmat: The Dread of Oakville Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Series ! These games just keep getting better and better. Great storyline, graphics ( a bit dark ), interesting mini games and very long game play. Extra feature - morphing objects. The CC edition was worth the money as it had a ton of new scenes to interact in. Extra feature - at end of game, you go back and find objects in 28 scenes. Others games do this and I am not sure I like it. I would rather find them as I play the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreadfully Good Nice little scares in this one and a little creepy at times. Cut scenes were excellent along with characters and dialog. Love the HO's in this one. Has a jump map, morphing objects, journal, and great game play. Have to buy this one soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT GAME! I finished the demo of 90 minutes. This game is excellent. Nothing bad to say about it. It's full of suspens. The graphics are very beautiful. The characters too. The sound emphasizes the whole story. I bought two others "Phantasmat" and shall buy this one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Entertainment This game was refreshing and fun to play. Loved the interactive ending and the twist. Bravo. Yay. I liked everything about this game and really enjoyed it very much. Storyline with video clips throughout the game was nice touch kept me very interested to the very end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too good to quit and go to sleep. Well, I’m not ready to stop playing but the demo ran out. I never lose track of time during these demos, but I did this time. I was right in the middle of putting together this really cool plus item, which required the solving of puzzles, (how cool!!) and not only did I run out of demo, but it seems to be 1:18 in the morning! So this will be real quick. The graphics are good, if a bit dark, but that is just the ambience. I like that the developers made things blue-green instead of gray. I get depressed looking a gray games. So you get the ambience without the grayness. I also love the lack of things on the screen, like inventory and all the menu buttons and stuff. Much more of it disappears when you move your cursor away than in most games. I love this because one of my favorite things is walking around and looking at the pretty pictures. The music is not so much music as mood-sounds, and very appropriate. I often turn music off, but not this time. The “music" was an integral part of the experience. Great job. I am not really sure what’s going on with the story, it is some sort of a creepy "what’s going on, where/who are these people” type of thing . . . but it doesn’t matter that I don’t know, I’m fascinated by the world. The mini games are fine but pretty simple. The hidden object games are great though, a strange thing for me to say because I like mini games better usually. It’s because they are so progressive and unique they are almost more like mini games. And for those HO purists, there are word-only hidden object scenes that pop up in small boxes occasionally. Also very different. Plus, all of the things that you have to do to progress through the world are fun to figure out, too. Now WHY did they have the game put the “Tom” poster together automatically? That was a waste because they could have given us a nice jigsaw-like puzzle instead of just having it assemble itself when you click on it. But hey, that is the ONLY thing that was wrong during the time I played. Also, go read Sunnyglow’s review. She’s played more than I have, has all the details, and says it only gets better after the demo. Now the problem is, I want to keep playing but I need sleep. Good night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Attention To Detail - Super Fun - Well Designed I play a lot of hidden object / adventure games - Mystery Case Files being my favorite series in this genre, but I have to say this EIpix game is right up there with MCF. The game looks great and there's lots of interesting, fun puzzles ... some with a bit of a "twist" on the puzzles you're used to if you play a lot of these games. I also *really* appreciate the Eipix feature where you can turn off "helpful messages" ... I find that those messages (standard in a game like this) make the game far too easy and not as much fun. So overall I really enjoyed this game and look forward to more from Eipix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on Full game & bonus: Here is whats in the CE after demo TO BIG FISH:: Please pass this along to DEV Eipix ,if possible, with hugs of course!! ****may contain spoilers*** This was my favorite game to date by Eipix. I Loved the dark story and this had one of the BEST SE ENDS I have seen in a while. You had me hop out of my chair, with those spookies jumping at me in the dark! The SE took me 5 hr 20 min to finish. The Bonus play took me 1 hr. 36 min -and this included 6 min, looking for the ce content for the Souv. Room. WTG- It has an in game 47 page Strategy guide. There are 7 chapters with the bonus play. Chap 1 is 5 pgs., Chap 2 is 4 pgs., Chap 3 is 5 pgs, Chap 4 is 6 pgs, Chap 5 is 6 pgs, Chap 6 is 7 pgs. and the Bonus or chap 7 is 8 pgs./ directions take 1 pg and Collect. content is 5 pgs long. There is NO DIARY that holds story. I play a lot of games at the same time so it always helps if I have a storyline refresher. END OF SE PLAY: I loved the end of this game. We see something SUPER SPOOKY,,, in the dark,,,, and it reminds me of how the game Maze 1 had that creepy doll, in the hall, that makes makes you cover your eyes...LOVED THE END of OAKVILLE. BONUS GAME PLAY: This took me 1 hr 30 min to complete. The bonus play is EXCELLENT in this game and I thought it was better even than the main play. I have to admit though.....we meet a character in a blue polka dot dress that I BELIEVE was a main character in SE play but she turns spooky and does a wardrobe change into that blue polka dress behind a bush I guess, because suddenly she has on different cloths, and she looks like she came up from the lake floor. If it WAS a new character then the story then it confused me. MUSIC- There are 10 saveable tracks which I didn't save. The original Phantasmat is known for its GORGEOUS music during the hidden obj. play. You know music is good when you hunt down the creator on google.... which you can for Phantasmat #1. So DEV if you want a hit like Phantasmat #1 you need outstanding music! And Morphs. REPLAY- match 3, 17 hos, 21 minigames, & 16 cutscenes -- none of which I replayed. I have too many other games I purchased I want to play next. WALLPAPERS- 8 x 4 sizes. INSTEAD OF CONCEPT ART- there are 9 GREEN SCREEN pictures of some of these cool DEV that are before and after pics during the games creation. Wish there had been more and wish all games would dump Concept art for these instead. BEHIND THE SCENES- I put my cell phone on stopwatch- it was 58 seconds long. It was set up kindof like the silent films of the 1920's. You watch some of the Eipix stars from this game imported into little scenes of the Phantasmat Oakville world. It was fun but done better in MCF Shadow Lake as a type of "lets show you what happened behind the scenes, interview type." GRAPHICS: I need to take a side note here for the graphics. Yikes, these graphics REALLY need work. A few rooms, too , the perspective was off, such as the Chapter 4 BALLROOM, being one. I am unclear why this DEV always chooses to go with hand drawn cartoon like graphics that have a filter?? I guess it's a filter. It makes the whole game somewhat unclear and I KNOW from games like MCF Escape from Ravenhearst and the Midnight Mysteries series that you don't need to unclarify the graphics like this. They may work on a Ipad or a smaller 15" computer... But many of us die hard buyers of Big Fish own large monitors JUST FOR THESE GAMES. So if it's in your arsenal to use live characters-- like we see in your CE PICS CONTENT... use them!! It would totally fix the prob with lip movement that I see a lot of the reviewers complain about. ACHEIVEMENTS/COLLECTABLES/ & SOUV. ROOM/ Each has its own page; and wowed by none of them. I DID like the Morphs per scene- I missed 3 after the game and they make it possible to GO BACK and collect those. Kudos to that. But none of these things will unlock additional content. I found the Souv coll to be a moot point. It takes 6 min. AFTER you complete the game you go into CE content and re-visit 28 scenes and collect an item that unlocks nothing. There are no screensavers. TO EIPIX--- why don't you have SCREEN SAVERS in any of your games?? I am sure that would push me to get the CE version if you offered one or more...like some other DEV. As I often state... it is a great way to FLASH IN FRONT OF your customer to buy the next segment of your game. Because if you can physically see a screensaver in front of you/ that has saved to your computer- and doesn't go away with the removal of the game/ It means that big fish fan liked your game enough LAST TIME to buy the CE version; and more than likely will buy the next installment!! I have noticed you have a few games and you make new installments from 6 months to a year. So this theory would REALLY HELP YOU SELL THE CE'S. It would be cool too, to hear the cool people/ instead of just seeing them// in BEHIND THE SCENES- and what that Eipix artist created, or intro the voice actors, some of which we know now and would love to meet!! I've stated many times you are all like movie stars to us and we WANT TO MEET YOU!! Hugs and xox for a terrific world you created and I hope you take my well meant criticism. I had a blast with this game and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantasmat Scores Again! I beta-tested The Dread of Oakville, and this review is based on that limited (but awe-inspiring) experience. The Phantasmat series by Eipix is one of the classic series that continues to impress. I will not be going into detail about the story (see "sunnyglow", "pennmom36", et al, for that), but will offer info about what I liked below. Modes: Easy, Medium, Hard & Custom. The first 3 options offer different levels for Hints, HOPs, Glints/Sparkles, Map features, and Messages. When offered these 4 choices I go right to Custom to tailor my game play experience. One can choose no Tutorial, Full Tutorial, or a tutorial only for uncommon features. There are Y/N boxes to choose map objectives, areas of interest on the map, "plus item" indicators, contextual pointers, helpful messages, and sparkles on HOP's. There are adjustable sliders (w/OFF) that address: HOP error penalties, how often active areas "glitter", and Hint and Skip recharge times. HO scenes: Many variations on them. In one you will try to find 5 related objects (twice), like tools and chains, that lead into a new HO scene where the final reward object is eventually obtained. There are FROG parts to assemble a hidden object (like a seahorse). Collect morphing objects to unlock a list of HO objects. There are what I would call mini-HO scenes where one tries to find a set of 5 objects that are replaced by 5 new objects before finishing the scene. One item, present here, that I haven't seen much of in HO or mini-scenes are arrows that allow one to pan up or down, left or right, like one sees in some of the major scenes. Puzzles: The puzzles offer a wide range of ability levels, but I didn't find any that were too difficult. Personally, I don't mind whether they are too hard or too easy, but ARE THEY FUN? I buy these games for the enjoyment, not necessarily the challenge - and the developers are trying to please all age and ability levels. An enjoyable game and one that will be a "buy" for me in the standard version when it comes out (I don't purchase many CE's).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snap Out Of It Man, You're Dead! Aunt Mae warned the entire town of the coming apocalypse but nobody believed the rantings of a feeble old lady. You were running late for a book signing when you find yourself trapped in the tiny town of Oakville. This town is as creepy as it gets, and missing person fliers are everywhere, but you don't seem to have a problem finding these people, man they're everywhere! Something's just not right with these people, they don't seem to know people are searching for them, and what's wrong with their eyes, they're pitch black! Are all these people dead? Am I dead? It's no secret that the original Phantasmat is my all time favorite game, and this game is teetering for that pole position, because it's simply phenomenal! The creep factor is certainly there, the storyline is intriguing enough to keep you glued to your computer chair, and the entertainment factor is off the charts. There are 43 Hidden Morphing Signs, Plus Sign Inventory items with puzzles, and plenty of Achievements to earn. There aren't any cuddly puppies, fire breathing dragons or curious kittens in this game folks, so turn off the lights and get your game on! (With Mr. Nightingale's permission, of course) The Hidden Object Scenes are all over the board, and there are several smaller HOP's within zoomed in locations. Some require multiples of items found to unlock a tool which in turn unlocks listed items, there are sketches of items to find, and even multiple morphing item finds. You can even opt for a Match 3 game in place of the HOP. My only complaint is that the graphics are rather poor in the HOP's, which I just can't seem to understand from such a great series. I hope you like Mini Games because there are a ton of 'em, ranging from simple puzzles where you turn rings or swap tokens to complete an image or more elaborate puzzles such as placing several round puzzle pieces with arm extensions of various degrees until all arms connect to the round tokens properly. This Collector's Edition has replayable Match 3 games, HOP's and Mini Games, the Making Of, Achievements, 43 Morphing Objects, Music, Videos, Pictures, Collectibles, a Souvenir Room, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eipix delivers another sinister edition to the Phantasmat brand!!! As the storm rages on through the gloomy night, a wayward traveler gets lost in the forest wilderness of the American northeast and stumbles upon a seemingly deserted town of Oakville.A home of the three industrious American families, the small area appears to be the momentary safe haven for the reasons which could hardly be described as natural – the rampant storm is the weakest within the town limits.Tucked away in the small valley and concealed from sight behind the faint mists of the placid mountain lake, the panorama of the prosperous community serves as a façade for a terrifying secret that involves all the residents but can be traced back to one mysterious figure – Mr. Nightingale. The shadows are closing in. Solve the secret and leave the town before the time runs out and shed light on the sinister origins of Mr. Nightingale, the eponymous dread of Oakville!!! This series continues with the 4th installment in the franchise and I loved it...
