Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value! Playing this before buying it, and I'm into it ten minutes and ready to purchase! This is the kind of game I love to play: lots of puzzles and HO's, and none of the cinematic fluff that gets in the way of game play. Too many developers these days want to make movies and forget that this is a game website! Love this one, and glad to spend my money on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moody, Eerie and Very Detailed Really enjoyed playing this game. When you've had enough of colorful bling and want some great graphics, with lots of detail, spooky lighting, and lots of realistic-looking items included,- then here's your answer. It's definitely a serious game, with scares here and there. The HOPS were interesting to look at, and the puzzles varied. There's lot's of rooms to explore and the story line and characters were very well done all the way through to the end. The puzzles are interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~~TRICK OR TREAT, A DECEPTIVE PLOT JANE AND JOE MUST DEFEAT!~~ What an exciting adventure to celebrate Halloween. The best party of the year is happening at Mrs. Blackwell's house or is it? What begins with a party invitation soon turns into a web of deceit. When orphans Jane Stone and Joe Benson arrive at the party Mrs. Blackwell and her ghoulish "beyonder" side kick kidnaps Joe and locks him in the bedroom. Seems Mrs. Blackwell promised Joe that if helped you (Jane Stone) get to the party, she would tell him who his birth parents are. Jane is part of an order called "seers" as were her parents. The "seers" devised a magic seal to prevent "beyonders" from reaching our world. There's only one problem, the magic seal can be reversed once a year and the "beyonders" have figured out a way to remove it! Now it's up to you Jane to figure out how to stop Mrs. Blackwell, save Joe and use your magic to save the day and escape Blackwell's dastardly plans. This tumultuous task will definitely be one party-goers will engage in and Elephant games have made it spooktacular!!! The heart-pounding music and the creepy ambient sounds also help increase the suspense of the game. Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. Don't forgot to look for the Morphing Object in each scene. More than worthy of a 5 star rating and a must-buy for me. Happy Halloween gamers!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific solitaire game! This game is just wonderful! I finished it but now I am going back to get three stars on all the levels. You really need power ups to finish the higher levels. I also love the mahjong bonus levels too. The graphics are wonderful. The haunted castles that you build are just beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mirror mirror on the wall After I played the demo for about 10 minutes, I knew I wanted to buy this game. When I decide to purchase that quickly, there is always a chance I will regret that. Luckily that doesn't happen often and certainly not this time. What an awesome game. The voices, atmosphere, visuals, special effects and so on are all great. For me the game was also long enough, a couple of hours. The hops and puzzles are excellent. Some easy, some more challenging. I liked them all except one puzzle I didn’t get until I saw the solution (arrange each element on the bag to match the hint). There was also one puzzle that seemed frustrating to me until I tried it. In this puzzle you have to complete the portrait by moving each column or row by placing the extra tile in an empty space on the top, bottom, right or left side of the picture. I’m glad I didn’t skipped because, to my own surprise, I liked it. A couple of things that I thought could use some improvement. From the moment Jane and Joe enter the house, it's clear monsters occupy it who want to trap Jane. Why reveal that so soon? Why not lure the guests in first, have a chat, celebrate Halloween, have a cookie, mislead the quests a bit, set the mood, create some anticipation where you just know and feel something is going to happen (the game does have great special effects). Another thing, those monsters where just OK. There are so many different kind of supernatural monsters that are already created and are still waiting to be created by those who think them up. So I was a bit disappointed by the appearance of the monsters in this game. There is also a twist that I thought was not necessary. Apparently the game is not that forgiving. Lastly, one character has a change of heart quickly. In the context of this game, that didn’t make any sense to me. It was so abruptly without any build up. She didn’t change her mind about something minor, it was pretty big. Regardless I enjoyed myself very much. I also think the game is a very inspiring setting if you want to have your own Halloween party. Everything was beautifully decorated. There was also an hop game (where you have to cross screens a couple of times) with a decorated table with food and treats all in Halloween style. It looked so nice. I kept thinking that would be a great inspiration and example if you want to cook up something appropriate for your own quests should you decide to celebrate Halloween. We don’t really have that in the Netherlands. We should have that. It sounds like so much fun. Maybe I will have one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good A good game. Pretty spooky in the beginning which was cool, but then as the game progressed it got a little boring. The puzzles didn't compliment each other. The majority of the game is quite easy, then you get some random hard puzzles which is too frustrating to even work out. Not a very long game either

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MARY, MARY, QUITE CONTRARY, THOSE BEYONDERS WILL MAKE US SING LIKE CANARIES! Halloween Stories is an awesome introductory game that I'll look forward to playing next year's release. It is a bit on the short side, offering only 3 chapters, but that doesn't bother me as long as it has a good plot, and this one certainly does. I agree with kerith90angel's statement that it would be nice if the devs would offer replayable videos as a standard option, or at least a play by play storyline journal to refer to. I too always wait for a good CE sale, and I usually don't finish playing the game until the SE is released, and by that time you usually forget many of the details. I highly recommend this game as a Collector's Edition because this is one of the few games that's truly CE worthy with Morphing Objects, Puzzle Fragments, and cleverly hidden spooky dolls. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version if either is right for you: Haunted Hotel move over! This is the big leagues baby, and this will be an evening Jane and Joe will never forget, unless they die of course. Halloween costume, check. Huge pumpkin head mask, check. An extra pair of clean underwear, ugh, prolly not, but this looks like the most awesome Halloween costume party ever! That's because it's real, these guys are the real McCoy's, and these two orphans are in for an unforgettable evening, as they try desperately to find each other first, and then a way out, before the Beyonders do terrible beyonder things to them! This is my favorite kind of game, filled with creepy Ninja dolls that climb the walls, evil sadistic looking clowns (I couldn't stop making the clown do his creepy eye laughing thing, I spent more time interacting with the weirdness than playing the game) Just when I thought this game was going to be the first game to push the limits of the horror genre games here at big fish, they backed off and added some pretty comical features. I'm pretty sure they weren't doing this intentionally, but for once I want to play a game that doesn't hold back, and I'm bettin' a game like that would skyrocket sales. I know a lot of people don't like dark games with things that go bump in the night, and I'm okay with glittery games filled with unicorns occasionally, but there's way more horror genre fans than not, otherwise there wouldn't be so many games like this offered. I say, make me show proof of age (cause I can double it!) and make me tremble with fear! In the Collector's Edition version, there are Morphing Beyonders Objects to find in each scene, Album Picture Fragments to collect and assemble 4 eight piece puzzles, and 12 Rare Halloween themed Dolls to find.(love the dancing skeleton) I'm glad I don't have to hang on to them for real, everyone knows creepy dolls are always possessed just like Annabel! Right at the get go, Joe suspiciously disappears, and come to find out, he's been taken hostage. Surely it will be difficult to find Joe in this huge mansion filled with things that go bump in the night, right? Oh look, here's your sign..Hostage This Way, written in blood...red paint. That was easier than I thought it was going to be! So once I find a map leading to THE very room I need to find, I decide to investigate my surroundings, while trying my best to be stealth like so as not to alert the Beyonders. First things first, fix the broken wire to the lights so I can see, I'm sure a light won't alert the bad guys to use as a beacon to find me. (why are wires always on the outside of the wall, and always frayed in half just shy of the switch?) By this point, I've already removed the famous broken skeleton key from the door lock, found away to open the ole "trap door hidden under a rug with a missing handle, used a coin as a screwdriver, solved a mini game to open a ridiculously complicated purse lock, used a rag as a tourniquet to compress solid iron pipes, found and used a razor blade to find a hidden treasure inside a sewn up patch, and of course found and replaced every emblem ever made since the beginning of time, to open up every trinket box and hidden caches I've come across, and this is just the third room! Moving on to the hostage situation, I enter an underground maze of complicated tunnels, most of which lead to a dead end. At one point did this lead somewhere? Did they scrap this passage mid-way during construction? It's a good thing I have a map to follow, don't all mansions come stock with a map? Did I mention there's a horseshoe shaped magnet just out of reach that I simply must have, because I need it to remove an important object inside a Spider cage? Did I mention the bars on the cage are so wide I could stick my hand through them, if it weren't being guarded by an attack steroid ridden spider? He's still just a spider, I'm pretty sure he can slip through the bars with no problem! By now I've had several close encounters with a ghost who seems to just float back and forth, with seemingly no rhyme or reason, surely it's a trick? Finally I reach the bedroom where Joe is being held hostage, bummer, the door is locked with a keypad. It's a good thing the code is written on the glass next to the lock. (the keyword is glass, Joe could have easily busted the glass and escaped) In all fairness Joe's hands are bound with magic rope? It's okay though, he knows they hid the special Magic Knife in the same room he's in, he just doesn't know where?? In order to find this knife, I need to look for some anti-rust remover, this stuff impresses me more than a Magic rope does hands down. But wait, first I need to find a drawer pull because its missing one, and simply placing a new drawer pull on the opening always seems to do the trick! While I'm searching for a way to free Joe, I may as well place these fragments on the picture and do a little Hidden Object searching. Man, this picture suddenly does seem larger up close, it's so big I have to look at it in 5 different sections as I practically do a 360 degree panoramic viewing! I'm totally exhausted at this point, this is a big house after all. On a serious note, although it sounds as if I was unimpressed with this game from my review, I'm not. Quite the opposite, I just like to look at unrealistic things with a sense of humor. I loved the creep factor, and even though all of the tasks are predictable and obvious, I still had a blast playing it, in fact I've already bought it! The Collector's Edition mostly has a bunch of creepy dolls and clowns speaking Latin, Spiders and cobwebs, shadows and objects that come to life and some even jump out at you. It also has 8 Concept Art pictures, 8 Wallpapers, 4 Music Soundtracks, 24 Achievements to earn, a Secret Room, Collectible Fragments to assemble 4 Album pictures with 8 pieces each, 12 Collectible Halloween themed Doll Figurines, and Morphing Objects, enjoy the escape!
