One of father’s stories was my favorite:

Once upon a time there lived a merchant and his wife. They lived happy lives and had never known grief. However, their maid, Julianne, grew jealous of their happiness and secretly dreamed of taking the wife’s place. Julianne learned of unholy powers hidden deep within the manor that could be summoned by ritual, although, there was a cost. She used these powers to curse the merchant's wife, banishing her to another world and unleash deadly powers into this world. Upon learning what transpired, the merchant vowed to find a way to release his beloved wife from her cursed world.

Years have passed. My father died, but he left me a message:

Your favorite fairy tale was the true story of our family. I tried to free your mother's spirit, but I failed. I beg you to finish what I could not. The solution is waiting in our old family home.

As a son, I must write a happy ending for my family’s story.

Stormhill Mystery: Family Shadows is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good "Creepy" Factor Thanks to the clever makers of Stormhill Mystery: Family Shadows - a good old classic storyline type of game - and a most enjoyable play for many solid reasonings. What really got me smiling was the first time the game made me "jump" due to the awesome "wee" special effects sprinkled throughout the game so ...... be on your toes! I missed 3 of the 22 scene morphs from the main game despite thorough searching and there are no morphs to collect in the bonus chapter. As previous reviewers have commented there are no HOS but this does not impact on one's enjoyment of the game. There are many beautifully made scenes with clever tasks within ... have to think, think, think ... but if really stuck simply press the hint button and, I discovered the "hint system" is excellent - especially as there is no strategy guide if you are in a bind. Once you have many scenes open using the map all of the time is the way to work seamlessly through the game rather than darting here, there, and everywhere for your next task, or new task. On that note there are one or two areas you cannot go back to (if I recall correctly) so if you miss the morphing object, that's it. Finally, I found the music pleasant and accurately "married" with the awesome realistic sound effects and beautifully created scenes equalling a great atmosphere. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. This is so good. I like the graphics and story. Puzzles are good. It's a buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hints and Skip is available in the Game Mode you choose I would call this a adventure game. You find things to help you advance. No traditional hops scenes. A few puzzles, really not many. Pictures are very detail and beautiful. It a ghost and witch story that kept me entertained. I won't spoil your discovery with more of the story but will said you play as a male. I'm pretty far as I found 17 morphs out of 22. I stopped to write the review. You have achievements and one of the achievements is finish the main game and another one is finish the bonus game. There is no indicator for the morphs so don't know which place I missed so far but I have a good idea. The map has all the locations and I counted them so I know I have a couple I need to find before I move on and open more locations. The tool bar has plus items. The first time I had to have three of the items before I put them on top of each other to combine them at the tool bar. So far I didn't have a hard time finding things and getting around. You just have to search a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done.....loved it Loved most everything about this game from plot to graphics and sound. Also the fact that during gameplay items could be used sensibly and for multiple uses without multitudes of crazy 'boxes, locks, etc. that are prevalent in so many games in recent years. Also there were no silly gadgets to use (personally loath and will not purchase games with gadgets and gimmicks!!#. Because of the sensible aspects to this great, spooky little game, it was fully immersive and it made my gaming time out very enjoyable #which is what it should be, afterall). Hope this developer offers more of same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice game to play. Darkness, witch, curse - I love all that things and also love games in such genre. Very pleasant art, spooky animations are just great. Storyline is pretty nice for such genre. It's not very hard game, but thanks to that you will constantly move forward, discovering new locations and puzzles and I think it's good. I can recommend it to all who loves ol' good casual adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent adventure I beta tested this game and I loved it. So happy to see it finally released. It is a HO to the extent you have to find things to help you progress through the story. But the goal is to use your deductive reasoning skills. So it isn't meant to be a quick game. Nothing about it is "cookie cutter," and it will make you think. This is a great game for those not as experienced with adventure gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adventure Not having any hidden object scenes felt different, but I liked that. It has been quite some time since I've played such a great puzzle adventure game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another supprise from BF This is a tricky one for me. It is a good game. It is also an old-fashioned game. It is a slow game. Exhausting. But I think it's fantastic! There are no HOPs. It is adventure. And nothing for the people who don't like being sent back and forth between many locations. There are a number of things that are now only with a Collectors Edition, such as morphing objects and a bonus game. It is a good value for money. Try it, I would say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Thankyou for a SE game worthy of being a CE. Morphing objects, a jump map and a spooky atmosphere all add up to a fantastic game that is value for money. Thankyou again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A SURPRISINGLY GOOD PUZZLE ADVENTURE WITH MORPHING OBJECTS! The beginning cutscenes were basically sketched pictures and it didn't look very promising, but once the actual game started, I was very impressed with this game's features and storyline, it even has 22 somewhat challenging Morphs! The graphics are "old-school" but in a good way. Clearly, they paid a lot of attention to the details, cracks in statues that make them look authentically aged, algae growing in stagnant fountain water, moss covering tree limbs, paver stones that have seen better days. Everything is decaying and falling apart, after all, the Mansion has been abandoned for years. The cutscenes (after the opening scene) are computer generated, crystal clear, and the characters are so life-like! This isn't Specialbits first time around the Adventure Game block, they have developed several games similar to this one. Their games can easily slip under the radar, the kind of games that once you discover them they are surprisingly good and I don't think they get enough credit for being able to stand toe-to-toe with some of the well-known big guys! I suspected Stormhill Mystery: Family Shadows was originally released as a CE version after reading some of the 10 available Achievements that eluded to Bonus Content, not to mention the fact that it has 22 Morphing Objects that are common in CE versions. Turns out my instincts were right! Now I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why on earth BF didn't offer this game in the CE version? Why did they opt for this Standard Edition version because it's a really good game, and certainly better than some of the HOPA games offered lately? With that being said, if you are looking for a Hidden Object Game, you may be disappointed because this is a Puzzle Adventure. There are still items that are somewhat hidden to pick up and use, as well as Mini-Games to play, but there are no actual Hidden Object Scenes. (at least during the 2 hours I've played so far) So far, the mini-games are quite good, they aren't difficult, but the kind of games you have to put some thought into, such as rotating and placing fragments that are very oddly shaped to make it more challenging, or sliding tiles until the tiles with gears align to create a path and opens a lock. I've only played this game for a little over 2 hours and the only buyer's remorse I have is that I wish it was a CE version! It has all the features I love, including an option to play in a Hard difficulty mode where Zoom Zones don't close automatically, a good Jump Map and Morphing Objects. I also love the Plus Items feature where you have to drag one plus item to another plus item logically, sometimes it requires 3 or 4 items to be combined! I also really loved the fact that several scenes remain unlocked which hasn't been the case in games of late. This makes the game more fun and more challenging because I can travel back in forth between scenes manually, searching for what needs to be done. When you can travel between 8-10 scenes versus 3 scenes only (within the newer games by the big guys) it's much more interesting! And the icing on the cake...so far I have had a Knife, a Crowbar, and Shovel the entire time and used them multiple times!
