Rated 3 out of 5 by from PHANTASMAT PHOOEY Phantasmat ISN'T supposed to be about a cheesy tree/vine red-eyed creature, Phantasmat is supposed to be about a phenomenon that never lets you leave a certain place, you try and try, but somehow end up right where you started until you begin to think that maybe you are dead! You don't know how you really got there in the first place, and why everyone you meet is behaving erratically. Phantasmat is supposed to be about a person who keeps having phantasmal visions that fill the player in with the necessary background story and eventually helps you come to terms with your new reality. Phantasmat isn't about reading a thousand loose pages of someone's diary conveniently laying around to explain the story! Phantasmat ISN'T supposed to be about an UNORIGINAL creature that doesn't want you to leave, phantasmat is an altered state of being, an alternate state of reality, NOT about things that go bump in the night!!!! This cheesy, vine creature is utterly ridiculous, laughable, and so been there done that a zillion times. The graphics are horrible, dull, lifeless, unappealing. I can't even say it's a step backward because they had better graphics originally. The "Hidden Signs" are large and easy to spot. The worse thing about this game is that there are only 3 areas of activity per detailess scene, a zoom zone on the left, one on the right and one smack dab in the center. There's no detail to even look at, everything is drab, colorless and boring, no need to pause and take in the beauty of the scenery because there's nothing to look at! The original Phantasmat won a slew of awards (wbtw was by a different dev) and I urge this dev to take a break and play the original game and then go back to the drawing board and create a Phantasmal Phantasmat worthy of its namesake. I have given this game 3 stars for the sole purpose of keeping the series alive so that they can create a game with a storyline as amazing as I know it can be, (you have the resources and the talent, I know it's in there guy, find your Phantasmat!) The Hidden Object Scenes were utterly horrific. The scenes are colorless shades of copper or blue and hazy. It's hard to tell where one object ends and the next begins because there's no definition, it's clearly in an attempt to make them more challenging, but that is NOT how a Hidden Object Scene should be! Items should be cleverly blended into the scenery and, not unrecognizable because of poor graphics! The HOP's are usually layered with a few different types including Listed Item Finds, Multiple Object Finds, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Pictured or Sketched Item Finds, Combination Sketches where this plus that equals blank Finds and Morphing Object Finds. In this Collector's Edition version, 19 of the HOP's have a Morphing Object and there is an alternate Bubble Shoot Game available. (one of the achievements requires you to play the alternate Bubble Shoot game at least once) The Mini-Games range from super-simplistic to practically mind-boggling, many of which simply have horrible directions. I don't mind mind-boggling as long as they aren't frustrating, in fact, I prefer games that require strategy or at least make you think about what you are doing rather than just solving them by memory because you have encountered that puzzle a million times before. There were very few puzzles offered here that were actually fun to solve unfortunately. They aren't original, they aren't even that creative. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games worth mentioning: 1-Guide footprints through the grid by activating switches and rotating directional arrows. 2-Move each eyeball to their matching slots using bumpers and portals. 3-Guide the ball through the maze using directional arrows and rotating sections of the maze. 4-Position arrow tiles to point to the center by selecting buttons to rotate Locked or Unlocked tiles. The Bonus Chapter delves into the background story of what happened with the Miners who first discovered the "creature" The BC is rather short in my opinion, and includes 5 Mini-Games and 4 Hidden Object Scenes. You will pick up the remaining 8 Antique Clocks or Hidden Signs, and 4 HOP Morphing Objects. Any missed Morphs can be obtained by re-playing the HOP's in the extra's section which also allows you to achieve Gold, Silver or Bronze status and improve accuracy. After completing the BC you can access the Souvenir Room to search for 24 Souvenirs, 1 pers scene. This Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art Pictures, 8 Music Soundtracks, 12 Movie Video Cutscenes, 20 Re-playable Mini-Games, 21 Re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, Re-playable Bubble Shooter Game (the alternate HOP game) 13 Achievements to Earn, 45 Hidden Antique Clocks, 19 Morphing HOP Objects, 24 Souvenirs within the Souvenir Room, 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter (miners/creature origins) and a Built-in Strategy Guide.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A GAME WHICH IS A MONSTROUS BORE REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 4 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 44 Pages OVERVIEW: You are off to visit your sister, Tilly, at her new place of employment, the Somber Hills Hotel. After surviving a car crash near the hotel, you are taken inside the hotel in a state of unconsciousness. Upon awakening, you realize something is amiss within this hotel. Your sister has written you about its seemingly haunted past. However, is it haunted or is something more sinister lurking within this hotel? Now within its walls, you must battle the evil within this hotel to save yourself, your sister, and the others trapped by a monstrous force who feeds on the life force of everyone who resides there. OPINION: I purchased this game based on the demo and regretted my decision. This is a long game with a decent story. The dark graphics and creepy voice of the monster add to the scare factor in this game. However, after the demo, I found the pace dragged. Instead of being scared, I became bored. For me the game is too long, lacking enough activities to keep up the pace. There are some great puzzles but too few of them. There is little dialogue and too much running back-and-forth between scenes to collect inventory items to place in yet another scene. I grew tired of the constant search for inventory items. Most of the HOP scenes are junkpiles with standard lists of items or silhouettes with few creative touches. I found this game more boring than scary. I love this series, but to me, this game does not match up to the quality of the previous games within the series. MECHANICS: There are four (4) levels of play including a customized version. There are thirteen (13) achievements. Collect forty-five (45) signs and nineteen (19) morphing objects (within the HOP scenes). The collectibles are easy to locate. Collect twenty-three (23) souvenirs at the end of the game. You can replay twenty (20) puzzles and twenty-one (21) HOP scenes. You can also replay the bubble shooter game. There are four (4) wallpapers along with concept art and music and video sequences. BONUS CHAPTER: It is a sequel. Your arm has been corrupted by the monster from the main game. You discover an imprisoned miner who promises he can help heal your arm if you free him. However, you will discover there are consequences and complications involved in freeing him. There are four (4) puzzles and four (4) HOP scenes within this chapter. It is a long chapter which I also found snail-paced. To me, this chapter is not worth the extra price of the collector’s edition. HOP SCENES: Missing all those junkpile scenes from yesteryear? Then this game is for you. There are twenty-one (21) in the game along with some mini-HOP scenes. Most, but not all, contain a morphing object. You can play a bubble shooter game in lieu of the scenes. Most of the scenes are lists of items or silhouette. Most scenes have a combination of both. There are also a couple of scenes with rebus clues. These are some of the most boring HOP scenes I have ever played. They lack creativity and there is little interaction within the scenes. By the end of the game I was so tired of playing the HOP scenes, I wished the monster from the game would corrupt the whole game so they would disappear. After playing one junkpile after another, I could not tell one scene from another. PUZZLES: The puzzles are excellent in this game. They are varied in difficultly and style. There are some which are unique and a few I have not seen in other games. Nevertheless, there were not enough of them to make the game enjoyable for me. There are only twenty-three (23) in the entire game. The lack of puzzles I feel adds to the monotony of playing this game. There is one puzzle repeated throughout the game. It is a variation of bubble shooter game in which you must shoot spheres before they reach the bottom of the screen. This puzzle is used when you battle an evil force. This is yet another game from this developer in which I found some puzzles with confusing directions. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE PUZZLES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Assembly puzzle. Arrange dice on a grid so all the numbers align to match a given number code. Every given number code must be seen within this grid. Excellent new puzzle never seen before B. Maze puzzle. Follow a maze-like map through the woods, choosing between two to three paths in which proceed until you come to the exit. C. Matching puzzle. Using two dials, bring a picture into focus. 2X D. Switch puzzle. Switch grooved metallic pieces on a grid, so they mesh with each other and the sides of the grid. E. Rotating rings puzzle. Rotate two interconnected rings with skulls and beams of light mixed together so that the beams of light are on side and the skulls are on the other. BONUS CHAPTER: F. Pattern puzzle. Copy four different patterns onto a grid using plus and minus buttons to add or delete color to produce the images. G. Sequence puzzle. Press arrows on a grid in the proper sequence so all are pressed. The arrows indicate how to proceed within the grid. It is up to you to find the proper order.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not like the old Phantasmat Games I could barely make it through this entire game. It was just awful. I have purchased all of the Phantasmat games and I have to say that with each new game, they are just getting worse and worse. Please, someone go back to the original Phantasmat game, possibly build on that storyline. This game was terrible. Don't waste your money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The worst Fantasmat Game in the series ! I am a fan of spooky adventures. This is a bad game in every aspect of it ! Poor graphics with childish drawn monsters and ridiculous voices over. Ugly HOS with no interactive scenes. Boring story with unappealing characters. Cheap in every way ! Some bonus and interesting puzzles but nothing to bring any glory to this fiasco ! To avoid ...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another Older Series Kicked To The Gutter This is not the Phantasmat we were introduced to eight years ago, the stellar game that gave a real boost to the Adventure/HOP game genre. This is what happens when a game is sold off to the same people who have bludgeoned so many other previously well-crafted series into the ground. So you will find yourself being dumped into the game without the usual opening menu - You will get there, just by the back door. You seemingly were found half froze in your car and brought to the hotel where your sister, Tilly, has her new job. When you regain your senses, there is some question in your mind as to what has transpired and what is actually going on in this hotel. Good stuff: There are plenty of HOPs and puzzles, a few creepy characters, a strangely familiar tree-like monster, morphing objects in most HOPs, and an assortment of CE bling. There were collectible signs in each scene, which were often cleverly hidden. Bad stuff: Several puzzles had instructions that weren't. HOPs had dark corners and items almost too tiny for the human eye. The creepy factor is mostly in the eye of the developer, as the monster looks like one we've seen several times before. The only characters you actually see/talk to are the hotel doctor, the hotel clerk, and the handy man. Neither of the latter two is menacing or creepy, just odd. The doctor seemed normal. Bottom line: Between the badly written puzzle instructions and the cheesy "monster," I was distinctly underwhelmed. There was some potential for a good game, but it lacked a really good story and any real menace. You want to remember to try out this demo and then bury the memory!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lame Game This game may have been considered good 20 years ago. But, comparing it to HO games created recently is just plain dull an uninteresting. The puzzles are tedious and the graphics poor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't Get Through the Demo So boring and predictable! I had hoped there might be more options and places to explore in each room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet, slow, boring... Hello friends! As usual, I review on the game play and leave the story to others...most of the time. I lost track of how many we have in this series, but it's a lot. No, I don't have them all. Graphics were a bit blurry, and worse in close up scenes, but the scene did fit my large screen. Voice overs were not bad, but we had very little character interaction in this addition. Game play was good, no problems during the demo. Animation was pretty nice as well and movements seemed smooth, with mouth and eye movements. Colors were a little muted in most instances and non existent in others. We have a creepy house and equally creepy ghosts. Music wasn't bad and changed depending on what was happening in the scene at the time. Mostly we had music and not much in the way of sound FX in this one. We needed storm sounds to add to the creepy. HOGs are a combination of straight lists, interactive lists, silhouettes, highlighted words and riddle type HOG. The scenes are mostly clear and items are not difficult to find. If you don't care for the HOGs, you can switch to a bubble shooter game. This time, we have a morphing item in 19 of the HOGs. These are not that easy to spot either. There seemed to be a lot more HOGs in this addition to this series. I found the puzzles had more challenge than I originally thought, but still were not all that difficult, just time consuming for the most part. Hint system is quite helpful and it does transport to longer locations. This is a good thing, as you do back track quite a lot. Collectibles: 45 signs that looked like shields. These are fairly large, but most have very little color, so they don't stand out. Needed a little something extra here. This series hasn't been all that great since the first couple, but there has been one or two in between. Personally, I think it's a little early in the year to be putting out a game that is so dark and dreary. The story was okay, but moved very slowly, and did not have enough action or interaction to keep me interested or wanting to continue playing after the demo ended. The only real challenge in this game were some of the puzzles. Even if I do not care for a game, I try to find something good to say about it, so I can recommend it to others. This one did not have enough good things to make me want to recommend it even to beginners. No buy, no recommendation, even though I am sure there will be those who will like this one. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews. Play on!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not Phantasmat. The reason the original Phantasmat still has such a huge phanbase is that it was a ghost story in which we were unable to tell what was real and who was alive. That constant uncertainty, coupled with the characters' odd behavior and the flashes of backstory, told a phantastic tale that was relatable largely because the characters' were human. The word "phantasm" doesn't mean "eldritch tree creature that narcissistically possesses others for its own purpose." It means "specter" or "apparition." That is to say, it means "ghost." Gameplay in the original Phantasmat revolved around not merely escaping, but also finishing the unfinished business of the ghosts so they could move on. There are limitless themes in which this concept might be played out. Such as... • Your sailboat blows off course into the Bermuda Triangle, where you're rescued by a phantabulous ghost ship. • Hiking in the forest, you become lost and stumble upon a phancy resort that burned to the ground decades ago. • Working late in a still developing building, the security system locks you in. While trying to escape, you come across several others who also seem to be locked in. Except they're actually the ghosts of murder victims, killed by the phanatic who owns the building. See what I mean? Ghost stories. Phantasmal ghost stories. This isn't one. You spend your time chasing after your sister and being chased by the shadowy tree creature. The characters you encounter aren't ghosts; they're possessed by the tree thing. It's silly. Frankly, the overused supernatural creature is a phantasy of which I'm thoroughly sick and tired. None of the sequels has captured the shuddering horror of the original Phantasmat. Mournful Loch is probably the best of the bunch, but even in that one, the uncertainty about reality was missing. Gameplay wasn't very challenging, except for the puzzles with poorly written instructions. And there was far too much "just click through the story" gameplay, of which I'm not a phangirl. Even the newphangled production didn't help. In short, Eipix can do much better. Either they should conform to the original ideas behind the series they take over, or stop taking over other devs' series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SAME DECRIPIT OLD HOUSE AND CARBON COPY MONSTER THAT I HAVE SEEN WAY TOO MANY TIMES Phantasmat Remains of Buried Memories is the 13th game in the series and it is nothing more than a gasp at keeping a series that should have been nothing but a “Buried Memory” alive. Honestly, when will BFG or developers realize when enough is enough. The game begins in an odd manner and I wasn’t sure if I had done something wrong but at least the beginning, strange as it was, is probably the best part of the game. I am not a fan of the Phantasmat series and Remains of Buried Memories reinforces why I dislike it. That being said, the best parts of the game are the HOS and the Puzzles. The HOS are excellent and creative in their presentation. My only complaint with the HOS is that some of the items are very small and blend into the background making them almost invisible. Although we have seen many of the puzzles before it is a good thing since the instructions are terrible. Of course with a Phantasmat game I expect dark and dull graphics so the graphics in Remains of Buried Memories live up to my expectations and that is not a good thing because I hate dusty and decrepit old houses or hotels. I don’t think it was too long ago that the monster in a game was a tree-like sort of thing so here we go again. In the end there is nothing about this Phantasmat that makes it stand out from all of the previous games in the series. The exception being that the original Phantasmat was incredible and one I still play today because, IMHO, that was a game that was hard to beat. If you love seeing tree monsters, cobwebs, spiders, and an old house in shambles then you will most likely love this game. For me the game is a definite pass and another that is going on my list of non-purchased games. Thankfully, we have had a few wonderful games to start off 2019 and those will be the ones I play. As always, please try the demo because Phantasmat Remains of Buried Memories might be perfect for you. Happy gaming!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Going to leave this one buried I've played all the Phantasmat games and so far they have been fun to play.......... until this one. Could barely make it through the demo. Very dark with cluttered hidden object scenes. The story, to me, made no sense. The games were awful. No buy for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another Disappointment I haven't purchased a Phantasmat game since Curse of the Mist, and still won't. I did play the Beta and didn't like it, but thought perhaps it might have been improved a bit - it hasn't. There's no "Phantasmat" feel to this at all; it's just another cookie cutter scary monster game with nothing new and no surprises, and really, no suspense. It only took me 20 minutes of play, including the very long "intro," to realize that this was yet another Phantasmat game that is disappointing. Oh, for the feeling and atmosphere of that first, long ago, Phantasmat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boooring Just the same old, dreary template. The HOPs are very boring and there are far too many of them. I couldn't even finish the demo

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring. I was hoping to be scared or at least excited , sorry to report but I was bored out of my mind. This is one more game that had to end about 3 games ago ,but it keep dragging on...and on...and on...Sad , really.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep this one buried The beginning should have tipped me off to how awful this game would be. Doing the same things over and over drives me crazy. I kept going thinking it just might get better. It didn't. Thankfully it ended and I couldn't wait to erase the demo from my list. BF, you couldn't give me this game. This is one of the few games I would give a zero if available.
