Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Murderer is in Rose Bay Florida Based on the finished game with the bonus material. At the start you see ghosts and don't know what to make of it. Your a writer of horror and a top seller. It starts in Miami, Florida, which is on the Atlantic ocean side. I like the mystery of it all. The gameplay is good, using some non-traditional items. Liked all the Hops and most puzzles. The puzzles I liked were bowling, ball and arrows, shooting the gun and the animal gate puzzle. I liked the map-like hops the best. Some hops had multiple morphs. Liked the vending machine. I was disappointed in the 16 scene morphs. I would of liked colorful pumpkins morphing into different items. The 36 ghost collectibles could of been hid a little more. I didn't like the ghost voices. (They echoed too much). The sign in the bonus is dated Nov. 20, 2018 which hasn't come yet. Miss the morphs in every hop and would like them back. Would like the hops in the guide. The Bonus Chapter, continues with the story. I liked the way it ended. Liked the increase in souvenirs 20. Could of been hid a little more. Love the replays of 13 hops, 14 puzzles, 12 videos match-3 and 7 music. Has 8 wallpapers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic game! I am really surprised by the negative reviews. I have not finished the game yet but so far I love it. The graphics are great, the story line is great, it is creepy (I love creepy)! The mood and tone of the game really pulls you in. The HO scenes are fun and interactive. The first Pantasmat was one of my favorites but I felt like they just went downhill after that. Not anymore. I am really enjoying this one. I will add more when I finish the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something New!! Finally, Something new in story line and games. I played the demo and am heading to buy. I don't understand some of the reviews that truly seem to dislike the graphics or games or general story line. I actually had fun playing this one and look forward to finishing it. Give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantastic Phantasmat May Be A Contender For Game Of The Year! The wait is over! When I first played the demo, I just knew there was something special about this game and I couldn't wait till it was released! With an intriguing story line and scary ambience, this solid game gets 5 stars from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best kind of Scary Psychological thriller!! The best kind. I don't usually play with sound but found it added so much to this game. Loved the crisp, clear, clean graphics. Starts out with a bang and keeps you on edge waiting for the next move. Not at all phony scary if you know what I mean. No bloody ghosts and corpses' and weird monsters with over the top powers (yet). A good thing. Just plain good ole Alfred Hitchcock type Thrills. Not a fan of Halloween but this is just the right timing to release this game. Right? A definite "Collection Edition" buy as I am sure I won't want to miss the bonus chapter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOULD IT KILL YOU TO READ A BOOK? Ron Parks was an aspiring young writer who waited anxiously for a reply from five of the most famous Horror Novelists even known, after all, he was their biggest fan! As the weeks turned into months, it became abundantly clear that none of them had even bothered to read his manuscripts, a blow to Ron's ego that would send him over the edge of darkness. It's a fine line between reality and insanity and an even finer line of Ron's deranged revenge plans. They say the first is always the most difficult, but it looks like Ron has already crossed that threshold many times, and your daughter Joan is his next target! This has an excellent storyline, however, it's a horrible Phantasmat! I just think they are distancing themselves too far from the creepy vibe of past games to stories about the deranged. If you've played the original Phantasmat and most of the earlier games, you know that the entire time you're playing, you have a nagging feeling that you might actually be dead, and that was so cool! I'd give anything to be able to write the next script for Phantasmat, my favorite series that's slowly going down the tubes :( There are 36 Ghostly Signs located in each scene and a Morphing Object in about half the scenes. There are icons that show the availability of both of these features in each scene, neither is difficult to spot because a white ghost and a piece of paper with a morphing pumpkin are hard to blend in naturally with the scenery. These games get shorter and shorter, don't they? I was able to complete this game in less than 3 hours without skipping any of the puzzles, not to mention stopping to take notes! The Bonus Chapter is okay, I've never played a BC that was an "on the edge of your seat" thrilling kind of game, but it is a sequel which takes place shortly afterward. You will search for the remaining 8 Ghostly Signs and 4 remaining Morphs, after completing the BC you can return to 20 of the scene locations to find a souvenir. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied and are the typical Eipix style of HOP's, finding 5 of the same objects to receive a tool that will open up the Item List, Silhouetted Shape finds, Multiples of the same object, Sketched Picture finds, Morphing Objects, and Progressive, Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds where you have to interact with the objects in the scene and find items to help you progress. Many of them are multi-layered offering several different types of Hidden Object finds within the same HOP. Most of the HOP's have an alternate Match 3 game available and they can be replayed within the CE Extra's section. The Mini-Game Puzzles are recycled games that aren't in the least bit challenging which was a huge disappointment for me personally. One feature that I've always liked about the Phantasmat series was that the puzzles were the kind that required tinkering with, such as setting specific water levels in tanks or connecting various wire configurations, games that you had to put some logical thought into. These puzzles, however, were basically the same ones that they include in all of their games lately, some of which required little thought or skill to solve them and they are easily solvable on the first attempt. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo and a few afterwards worth mentioning: 1-Rotate & swap path sections to move gems from end to end. 2-Slide tiles to complete the animal images on a cross-shaped puzzle. 3-Rotate rings to complete the image, slide pins to hold rings in place. 4-Drag the silver ball through a maze, stopping on all white circles first. 5-Rotate & place faces on the box correctly. 6-Use directional arrows to navigate a ball to the hole (tricky) 7-Move chain by selecting numbers, arrows will change the direction of moves. 8-Solve the math clue and change the numbers accordingly. 9-Navigate the swamp using directional arrows & a UV lamp to show hidden paths while collecting items to progress. This Collector's Edition has 6 Character pictures with before/after slider bar & dialog recordings, 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, 7 Music Soundtracks, 12 Movie Video Cutscenes, re-playable Match 3 Games, 14 re-playable Mini Game Puzzles, 13 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 13 Achievements to earn (some available in 3 categories) 16 Scene Location Morphing Objects (11 in Main Game, 5 in BC) 36 Hidden Ghostly Signs (28 in Main Game 8 in BC) a Souvenir Room with 20 Souvenirs (one souvenir in each of the scene locations) 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy the madness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEATH IN HARDCOVER IS EVERYTHING THAT PHANTASMAT SHOULD BE To be truthful, I lost interest in the Phantasmat series long ago and didn’t even purchase the last game – one of the few that I haven’t since the CE version of games was introduced. With this being the third Phantasmat game released this year I didn’t hold out hope that this would be a good game but what a surprise when I played the demo and found Phantasmat Death in Hardcover to be an excellent game. There is no need for me to recap the storyline, which by the way, I found to be excellent and thrilling. It was a storyline that held my interest from the very first scene as I tried to find out why this madman was targeting me and putting my family at risk. What made Phantasmat Death in Hardcover such a great game? Aside from the well told storyline, what really grabbed me were the very creative HOP scenes. Those scenes were excellent and sometimes challenging with one of them having me a bit confused until I figured it out. The puzzles are terrific and some seemed quite challenging at least for me. Although I am not a fan of the thriller theme in HOPA games, Death by Hardcover gripped me from the very beginning. As I played there were times I was on the edge of my chair but I still couldn’t stop playing since I had to see how this all ended and if Marcia would be able to rescue her family. This game is fairly intense and one that might not be appropriate for all members of the family. For once, all those warnings that we see in games, really is true. If you are able to handle an intense psychological thriller, then you will most likely love this game. Many gamers, I am sure will agree that this is the game we have been waiting to see: a game that is designed for adults and one that elicits a range of emotions while playing. EIPIX did an amazing job with this Phantasmat that, IMHO, would definitely qualify as a candidate for game of the year. Congratulations on an excellent game! Even though I really found this to be an incredible game, PLEASE try the demo to see if Phantasmat Death in Hardcover is a game you will enjoy.
