Rated 5 out of 5 by from GRAB A SHOVEL TO DIG UP THAT BUCKET, FIND A VALVE TO TURN ON THE WATER BECAUSE THIS DEV IS ON FIRE! Nobody knows for certain if Delilah was the culprit responsible for those missing children all those years ago, but the townsfolk needed answers, they needed a guilty party to end their suffering. In a fit of rage, they chased her to the point of no return, a horrific and tragic death that would not go without punishment. Some say Delilah returns every few years to steal the children of those who wronged her all those years ago, but that's just another urban legend... or is it? I know that many of you are not fans of this creepy genre, but Elephant Games is obviously pushing the envelope to see how far they can go with a psychological thriller. This is what I want, this is exactly the kind of storyline I crave, so please, please, please let them run with it, let them continue to push the envelope even further! HOPA games and HOPA players have evolved, and many of us are no longer content with the same old watered-down storylines of HOPA PAST, we want to be creeped out, we want to be frightened from the comforts of our computer chairs, we want more, we want what Elephant is giving us. Elephant Games-this genre is your niche-run with it! The Black Book is actually a Gadget in the game, but it's not used that often and it's not your usual gadget or helper scenario. When the Book has a blue aura around it, you select the book to tear out a clue and place onto the scene indicated. It will show you how to play a game or what item is needed to overcome an obstacle. Each scene has a Morphing Object and there are Newspaper Fragments to collect that completes a picture in 4 different Newspaper articles about strange phenomena. Twelve of the scenes have a collectible statue that's Halloween related such as a witch, zombie or vampire. The graphics are amazingly realistic and the "horror" scenes are absolutely credible, I don't know what's going on lately, but Elephant Games is on fire! It's clear to see that the team has been rejuvenated and are trying very hard to create top-notched games. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Listed Item finds with a few interactions required, but this is the old school style I prefer. Don't let the simplistic nature fool you though, because at the end of each scene, after finding all the items a sentence at a time appears saying "open the window" find door # 21, take the diamond, I found this feature alone a very interesting concept that wasn't as easy as you may think. The items are cleverly hidden, and there are a ton of Zoom Zone Hidden Object Scenes. Some have Silhouetted Shape finds and most combine a mixture of both. I particularly enjoyed the mannequin scene, as you click on a mannequin that has the item, they turn around to show themselves, and someone has a vivid imagination! The Mini-Games are varied in difficulty levels, some are far too easy, some are standard favorites, and some are mind-bending, with just a dash of "selecting one affects others" (ps: I really hate those) I like that the mini-games slowly progress in difficulty, but they still throw in a relaxing "I've got this" quickie now and then. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo and a few worth mentioning afterward: 1-Paint by numbers that appear and disappear in groups. 2-Select columns & scroll until you've spelled the clue word. 3-Click a ball when an opening appears to navigate the maze. 4-Swap tiles to complete the image. 5-Select arrows to slide the bat into the slot using bumpers. 6-Rotate the board & slide gems into their slots simultaneously. 7-Use directional arrows to move colored tiles into matching columns. 8-Guide the ball thru the maze using directional arrows. 9-Rotate & place map fragments correctly. 10-Rotate 2 discs and attach color matching gear sections. 11-Turn all tiles silver, clicking 1 tile moves adjacent tiles. (nemesis) 12-Click 2 bats at a time to find hidden matching symbols. 13-Click to stop each disc ring when they align. 14-Align 3 matching disc sections using empty spaces. 15-Swap identical puzzle pieces to complete the portrait. 16-Slide all symbols to their matching colored slots. This Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, 4 Music Soundtracks, 21 Achievements to earn, 32 Fragmented Newspaper Articles, 4 Completed Newspaper Articles (8 Fragments required for each) 24 Morphing Objects, 12 Collectible Halloween Characters (vampire, zombie etc.) A Secret Room with 14 Re-playable Mini-Games and 16 Re-playable Hidden Object Scenes (can only be accessed after completing the BC a feature I don't agree with because sometimes the BC is downright boring) 3 Main Chapters (don't let that fool you, they are lengthy chapters & the BC is even longer) +Bonus Chapter (sequel of returning to the Halloween Nightmare..curse that black book!) and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy the Nightmare!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing light or fanciful here! Oh my!! This review is based on the demo only. 2018 game. Exquisite graphics, dark theme and a bit twisted. NOT a fun, cute Halloween game for kids to play!! I think the reason dark themed games are often appealing is because of the solitude that is experienced as you move around from place to place (not a people-packed experience) and because you really don't know what to expect at any moment... What I loved: Elephant games- I really appreciate their comprehensive sound control options and this game has detail that's out-of-this world, both in the scenes and sound-wise. Lights and shadows, gouls and foul creatures... Lots of gray, lots of unseen corners, lots of skeletal bits and pieces reassembled to create monstrosities, but not in a bloody, gross, fleshy way, more in a "that's really weird" way. Sometimes, if the kid in the game seems too familiar to me, I'm unable to play it, but in this case, I was ok. So if you are a family person, you might want to trial it, to make sure it doesn't make you uncomfortable. Best game out for a while!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spooky Enough for me Wow! It's going to be hard to top this Halloween game. Everything is done so cleverly it's refreshing. Though not a fan of Halloween this game is an absolute buy. The music is perfect and the graphics awesome. Once you start, it is hard to quit playing. Great job, Elephant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A TOTALLY CREEPY AND SCARY HALLOWEEN STORY Let me begin by saying that I am mostly a fan of the fantasy HOPA game BUT as we approach Halloween we have seen a few creepy games and Halloween Stories the Black Book is by far the best of the best. This is one awesome, scary game. There were times I had to stop and catch my breath as I was playing. I never liked horror movies or even wanted to go near a haunted house when I was a kid even though my dad, being the big kid that he was, set one up in our garage each Halloween. If you love being frightened, and I mean having some great jump-scare moments, then this is definitely the game for you. Although I don’t generally care for this type of game, Elephant Games did such an awesome job creating the characters and the real haunted house feel. While playing the game as Jen, I actually felt like I was walking the halls and entering the rooms of the haunted house and other areas in the game. Never knowing what was behind a door, or hanging from the ceiling kept me playing this game. When I had to stop and play a HOP scene or a puzzle it was almost a relief from the scare factor that I felt as I moved around the scenes. The HOPs and Puzzles were well integrated into the game and they didn’t feel as if they were added to the game as an afterthought simply to have the required HOPs or Puzzles. If you love Halloween, you will most likely love this game. The Black Book is much better than the first game in the series that was child’s play compared to this one. I would not recommend this game for young children as this is a game that really should have a PG-13 rating or at least one of those generally meaningless warnings that BFG once put in some of the games. This is one very scary game that I think most older players will appreciate. I don’t do creepy, but I found myself involved in this well-crafted game and although I can’t say I loved it, I do think it deserves a 5-star rating because the game is everything that Halloween is all about. As always, PLEASE try the demo to see if this is the Halloween game you have been waiting for. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Witch pursuit opens portal into Halloween dreamland The Halloween fantasy that unfolds in the search for your sister is a dream for fans of this holiday and all of its symbols. Wraiths float from floorboards, jack-o-lanterns glow and flicker, and bats flap their wings in a flurry of activity. Standout scenes: A paint by numbers challenge that is anything but standard. The numbered sections morph as the player quickly dabs the brush in the corresponding paint to complete the image. A black book collected early on in the game will help you with clues to several puzzles. I loved the HOP where you look at a single rune type symbol, and each mannequin turns around with a freaky surprise. The bonus chapter offers up just as much spooky fun with a scarecrow battle. You match at least three Halloween symbols such as a cauldron, broom and pumpkin by drawing a line between them to defeat the creepy scarecrow and advance along into the world of dreams. I didn't locate all the morphing objects, which are challenging to find, but I found the newspaper fragments which make up four front pages that are fun to read. It's really more of a challenge just to see if you can find them all. The pumpkin figures are scattered throughout the game and are animated, all as pumpkins tricked out as different Halloween characters. Favorites are the vampire pumpkin sipping a blood-filled goblet, a cackling witch and stone gargoyle with flapping wings. So much detail and attention in this game. Love it and will probably play it again around Halloween!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on Demo Whew a challenging game. Plenty of hidden objects, some are a little hard to see due to the darkness of the sceen. BUT the individual games are great, challenging and sometimes not sure what to do but loved it. There are plenty of ghosties and goulies and things to do, morphing objects and other items to find. I really enjoyed this game. Note, there are ghosts and some goulies are a little frightening so if that scares or upsets you, beware. May not be for younger audiences. I do not have sound turned on so can't rate that portion.
