Customer Reviews
Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warning: This Game Has Nothing To Do With THe E. A. P. story except the title! In Dark Tales: The Pit and the Pendulum, you are traveling to meet Dupin at a magic show in a private home. Guests are there by invitation only and Dupin has your invitation. You are going to try to aid him as he strives to protect an old friend, Zula, one of the performers. She has received threats upon her life and has foreseen her own death. She has appealed to Dupin for help. Good stuff: There are the usual assortment of HOPs and mini-games/puzzles along with a story that bears one of Edgar Allen Poe's most famous titles. It has nothing to do with his famous tale. The artwork is good. Bad stuff: Same complaints as on other of their games - missteps and logic fails abound. At a crowded party, the fire extinguisher is locked to the wall with two amulets/keys that must be found before you can take it. You and Dupin enter a room where a prime suspect was locked in with the doorman, Matt. The "bad guy," Jacob, who is Zula's partner, jumps through a window into the garden. Dupin goes after him just before a security gate clangs down. You must find three masks to add to the one in place on the gate to raise it, but only after you solve still another puzzle. By the time you've run back and forth retrieving the other masks from safe, cabinet, and trunk, using a seeming unending supply of amulets, there seems little point in rushing after Dupin and Jacob. Fortunately they are still fighting in the garden. You catch up in time to have Jacob hurtle a poison gas canister at you. You see him drag Dupin off as you pass out. You regain consciousness to find that the secret passage they went through can be opened when you find four statuettes. So you trek back and forth again. Unfortunately the mini-games/puzzles are quite easy and, with the light weight story, there just does not seem to be any incentive to purchase the game. Please try the Demo. I can't recommend what I will not be purchasing. This is one more in a series of sad cookie cutter games coming from this developer. I miss the early DT games and wish the Devs would just start a new series and stop abusing E.A.P.
