Left in the Dark: No One on Board is a hidden-object puzzle-adventure game with a moody ambience and creepy setting. Private Detective Charlotte Austin knew this case was going to be an odd one after reading the letter from the Mayor of Portsmouth. In it, he asks her to solve the mystery of a ship that disappeared at sea and then reappeared a few weeks later with neither crew nor cargo. Her initial attempts to draw logical conclusions based on the evidence fail utterly. Charlotte realizes there may be something to the curse the local press is writing about. After encountering a hooded figure with a hook on a supposedly abandoned ship in a series of eerie events, she fears the mystery is much darker and deeper than she originally thought. Charlotte has to discover what connects the ship’s disappearance with Devil’s Island and a family’s unsolved murder. But will she find the allies she needs to break the Curse of the Traveler?

Left in the Dark: No One on Board is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been waiting for a long time for a great game like this! Based on the completed game. I love when they stick to the story and NOT run off to do needless find and seek then get back to the story now and then. This game is like watching a movie and your in it from beginning to end. I wish more devs would take a lesson on the gameplay of this game! I like to play games to relax and to enjoy my time with them, NOT pull my hair out of my head trying to see or understand what the dev thought up with. To me, life is hard enough without adding more tension in it. I know there are people that want, real hard hair pulling puzzles to tease and work their brains: All I can say is, different strokes for different folks... I'm so happy that is was for $2.99 today or I may have missed out on this, gem of a game.!!! Everything was great about this game. Visuals were bright and crisp. Sound was excellent. In casual, hint recharged fast. Storyline was excellent. Lots of puzzles for those that like them. Lots and lots of HOG"s for those that love them. Fantastic game for all levels of gamers! It's just a great game, that keeps you interested in it from beginning to end. Try the demo and see if this game is your cup of tea...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT This game is awesome. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced and Expert modes of play; * Interactive map; and * Notebook Now, I know that the graphics are not that great. However, its easy to see everywhere and items you need are clear to find. Its just that everywhere is kind of grainy and a bit dark. But don't let that put you off because its such a great game. Sound is good and the music is orchestral and piano. There is a lot of screeching and animal sounds throughout the game which made it eerie and kind of spooky. This fitted well with the game. The hidden object games are straightforward and are quite cluttered and some items are hard to find. Some I just breezed through and others I spent ages on. You will do each of the HOPs twice. I loved the mini-games. Yes, we've seen them all before but it was fun doing them again. None of them are hard to do and you can get back on to the game again fairly quickly. All up the game took me about 4 hours, not skipping or hinting anything. Overall, this really is a fun game to play. There is a sense of urgency to help Isabella and to find out who the murderer is. There is plenty to do and you will never get bored. Well done to the developers. Definitely comes recommended. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the art, story and gameplay Based on completed game. I'm a sucker for maritime tales and am often disappointed but not by this one. I absolutely loved the rougher hand-drawn art. Very in keeping with the theme and not over-pretty. I got involved in the story right away and it was truly spooky. I never got lost--the scenes were different from one another and you played between a limited number of them at a time. The hint button and all mechanics worked perfectly. I even enjoyed the shorter length as it made a nice tight package and wrapped up the story well rather than drawing things out finding more and more tools just to add to the length. I found the voices pleasant. The fact that I could return to a HOS and found the items I had found before were gone was wonderful. All in all an exceptionally fun game experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved No One on Board....didn't get bored! Very spooky adventure with several surprises. The graphics, the big cursor, and stories makes me love Artifex. Kudos to developers. Solve murder with plenty of HOS/ Puzzles and V/O's are great. The murderer also looks like the killer in I Know what you did last summer (horror flick). The ending was shocking. I had no problem complying with the murder's wishes.....PUSH!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very good game you're "madame detective " and have been sent to an island where people disappeared and the ships are found abandoned and captains and crews are nowhere to be found. a little girl's spirit comes to you and helps you some throughout the game. you find the ID of the detective that was sent before and was never heard from again. played casual, no sound. hint/skip charge in about 30-45 seconds. didn't time it. the mini games could be hard if you are like me. i had to skip quite a few. the graphics are good but some scenes take a little time to find the objects because of the number in the scene (crowded) but sometimes they are well hidden and blend in. diary and interactive map. sequel...i think so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So worth a free game!!!! I played the free trial. At that time not sure. Took a chance anyway. So glad I did lots, of HO's I love that. I am very hard, on game reviews. I wait for games, beyond 5 stars. Please Big Fish don't waste our time on, stupid games. For our membership they should be amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maritime mystery, dark atmoshpere - I like it! Its an old fashioned hopa game which is not bad, especially that game is well done. Story: I personally love the maritime or seaside stories, so the game meet my taste perfectly. The storyline is clear and straightforward. It could be a bit more deep and developed but it is no problem as the story is well told. Basically there is a ship with missing crew and we (as a Madam Detective) have to solve the mystery. Audio and Video: The graphic is very good. Hand painted locations creates really dark and mysterious atmoshpere. In some places you can almost smell the sea ;) Some painted objects are a little blurry and locations little foggy but I think it fit well with the overall mood of the story. I would say that some parts are even too colorful. Music is more ambient than a catchy movie score. It could be a bit more memorable. But after all it does its job and complements the visual art. Voices of the characters are well acted (love the accent of the ferryman ;) ). Gameplay: As I wrote on the beginning its an old fashioned and solid piece of hopa game. So there are hidden object scenes, variety of riddles and puzzles. Most of them are well designed and intuitive. The biggest problem is that the riddles/puzzles are sometimes bit too easy. That doesn`t mean they are no fun, quite the opposite. The gameplay has a "fun factor" without doubt. Final words: I like this game, especially the setting and mood. There are a few minor cons but they are really doesnt matter. If you sink deep into the maritime atmosphere the main problem appear - game is a little too short. Its only my personal opinion but - I want it more :)
