Customer Reviews
Halloween Chronicles: Behind the Door is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good game - nice a relaxing for the afternoon i played the CE version when it come out and was so over board games e.g. Bridge to Another World: Endless Game and Labyrinths of the World: A Dangerous Game so after about 5 minutes i gave up on the demo. Today this game was on special $4 but i had a coupon (and there really isn't that many games out there that i want to purchase and the coupon was going to run out). I was surprised that i actually liked this game - the hidden objects are terrific because they are different e.g. not all boring lists and the puzzles were good and some challenging and i was able to complete them all. (yah me) Great effort from the developers for keeping it different. I think the developers have taken the time to make it a little bit more fun by interacting with items eg. eye balls moving etc - just added that little bit more to it. Overall there isn't anything new in the storyline but what can you add to a Halloween theme. I am pleased that i did purchase (even with a coupon) this game - it will be one that i will play again. Try before you purchase - happy gaming :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SOLVE FIENDISHLY CHALLENGING PUZZLES???? Completed Game approximately 6.0 hours (including completion of all Mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 23 Main Game Scene Locations +10 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner Prepare to be frightened by ghouls & goblins and things that go bump on the eve of Halloween...just not from this game! Like a B-rated horror flick, it will leave you wondering why ya kept watching/playing...because you say to yourself, 'it will get better, the plot has to thicken a bit longer" but it never does...yet you feel compelled to keep going? You keep going even though the game is reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day, repeating the same ridiculous tasks with slightly different tools over and over...You find a single hedge clipper blade...you're positive the other half AND the teeny tiny screw will be found shortly down the road, intact ready to assemble...the reality is there was a good reason those old hedge clippers aren't fully assembled (does anyone take these apart for ANY reason?) You find an old horn and you lug it around because you know a drawer will be jammed in a scene or two...now where's a heavy object, can't have one without the other? The vacuum cleaner that was discarded because it doesn't have an on/off switch...everyone knows your eagle-eyes will spot this at any moment, maybe even buried in a pile of dirt, it will be perfectly fine and easy to repair, just stick it in place a voila, it stays put...no wiring necessary! (again, there was a reason the switch was unattached in the 1st place) By now your hands are pretty full carrying around all these items...but wait! Heck yeah there's a hairpin...but I'll toss that aside after picking a lock because low and behold I've found some real lockpicks for the next lock...today is my lucky day! Ut-oh are those bees...wow, today IS my lucky day, who'd of thought there would be a pipe full of tobacco in the exact spot the bees have taken up residency? Turns out, Halloween Chronicles: Behind The Door is frightening after all! AUDIO-VIDEO & GAME MECHANICS: Domini has always had crisp, detailed graphics even though they sometimes struggle with the color palette which tends to have an overabundance of one dominant color for each game. The graphics are always beautiful but Domini certainly lacks a Halloween imagination because Kriben is the most pathetic "monster" I've ever seen in a HOPA game, He's so cheesy it's laughable which I suppose is why they felt the need to add so many legendary Halloween monsters to the mix because they couldn't pull off a new evildoer. The audio always seems spot on and you'll probably never notice looped soundtracks, but that's exactly how background music is supposed to work, it should go unnoticed while subconsciously stimulating the brain to recognize the ebbs, floes, and climaxes of the storyline. Domini is famous for adding items that can be interacted with, however, they seem to be far and few between lately and they tend to add a bunch of interactions during the demo portion to trick us into thinking that the entire game will be loaded with them! COLLECTIBLES & MORPHING OBJECTS (CE Only): The collectibles/morphs are always the same, they just have different names. Once again, there is a gazillion Missing Notes to discover, 15 Morphing Kriben's Things to click on, and 15 Monster Figurines with descriptions. I always refer to them as "clickables" versus collectibles because they are never challenging to find, they just require the player to click on them...clickables! Once again, there are 66 Zoom Zone Stone Coin that is used to purchase 15 uninteresting Armory Items. Who cares about buying items stuffed inside an Armory Closet? There is an optional Collection Icon Tab that can be enabled or disabled in the settings menu which lights up when a clickable is available in the scene. You can also choose to show/hide the availability of collectibles on the Map. HIDDEN OBJECT SCENES: There are 18 Hidden Object Scenes +4 in the CE Bonus Chapter, the same amount offered in every game because as I said the game mechanics are the same in every game, they only change the graphics & story, everything else is a carbon copy. The Hidden Object Scenes vary with Keywords in Sentence Finds, Find & Replace, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Silhouetted Shape Morphing Object Finds, Fragmented Object Finds, Matching Objects, Multiples of the Same Item Finds, _ + _ = ?, and good Old-fashioned Interactive Listed Item Finds. MATCH 3 ALTERNATIVE: There is an alternate Match 3 Game available, which still doesn't allow you to make consecutive matches quickly because you have to wait for all tiles to stop falling before you can make the next match which makes the game super boring. The M3 boards are always square and they never add obstacles or new features to make it progress in difficulty. FYI: one of the achievements requires you to play the alternate Match 3 game in place of the HOS. (just once) The thing that bothers me the most is that the boards are exactly the same in every game, they don't even bother to code new Match 3 games from one game to the next, how lazy does it get? MINI-GAMES-PUZZLES: There are 18 Mini-Games +8 in the CE Bonus Chapter. You can choose to play them in an Easy or Hard difficulty mode and you can choose which mode to have them start out in the Custom Setting (you can still switch between modes for each individual game) Nearly every puzzle involved sliding tokens/gems along a track of various shapes or some type of maze puzzle. They weren't very creative and all of them were offered in previous Domini Games, they simply changed the graphics to match a Halloween theme, mostly involving skulls. BONUS CHAPTER: (CE Version Only) The Bonus Chapter takes place in "Ye Olden Days" as a Monster Hunter on a mission to save his sister after being kidnapped by Kriben and hidden within the castle walls during the 19th century. There are 4 Hidden Object scenes and 8 Mini-games spread out over 10 additional scene locations filled with even more repetitive tasks. You will continue your search for the final 5 Monster Figurines, 5 Morphing Kriben's Things, and 9 Zoom Zone Stone Coins of varying amounts which allows you to purchase the final Armory Items...same collectibles/morphs, they just have different names. THE LEGEND OF STINGY JACK THE JACK-O-LANTERN ORIGIN: Stingy Jack invited the devil to have a drink with him, but Jack didn't want to pay for the drink, so he convinced the devil to turn himself into a coin. Instead of buying the drink, he pocketed the coin and kept it close to a silver cross in his house, preventing the devil from taking shape again. He promised to let the devil go as long as he would leave Jack alone for a year and that if Jack died, the devil wouldn't claim his soul. After a year, Jack tricked the devil again to leave him alone and not claim his soul. When Jack died, God didn't want such a conniving person in heaven and the devil, true to his word, would not allow him into (HE double hockey sticks) Jack was sent off into the night with only a burning coal to light his path. He placed the coal inside a carved-out turnip and has been roaming the earth ever since. COLLECTOR'S EDITION EXTRA'S: (CE version only) 15 Wallpapers, 16 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 28 Movie Video Cutscenes, 38 Achievements, 18 Replayable Mini-Games, 18 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 15 Morphing Kriben's Things, 15 Fairy Monster Clickables, 66 Zoom-Zone Stone Coins, 15 Armory Supplies (purchase with Stone Coins) 7 Main Chapters, +Bonus Chapter, and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
