Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tale gets a reboot in this fourth game in the well-loved Dark Tales series. You and your detective companion Dupin have been summoned to the seashore to help William LeGrand discover the exact location of a treasure lost hundreds of years ago. But LeGrand isn’t the only one with designs on the pirate booty… A masked villain tries to make off with the code, and a mysterious woman in a veil seems to be connected. Follow the clues – with the help of the superior sniffing abilities of your Newfoundland sidekick – to track down the treasure and foil the criminal’s plans.

Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold Bug Collector's Edition is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good game I didn't like this game as much, just because I got stuck a couple times and had to read the walkthrough. I just didn't think the story flowed very well. still a good game in my book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from over all another great game from ERS I enjoyed this game, I am very glad I got the CE because the hint was good but sometimes confusing - especially when I needed to give something to the dog, the CE walk through helped, also since there is no map having the CE was a god send. otherwise I enjoyed the game, this developer seems to be consistently good in my opinion. I don't use sound so can't rate that and I am not big on the extra's, by the time I finish a game I generally want to stop and move on so the extra's are not important to me but over all a great game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this series. The Dark Tales series is my favourite hidden object series so far. I live the story, the graphics and the challenge level was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treasure indeed The Dark Tales is my favorite series of games from ERS, and this, the fourth such adventure, suited me very well. Excellent graphics and sound, and as usual, very challenging puzzles. The only complaint I can think to offer is that the game didn't make it very clear who the villain is; I figured it out, but it would have been nice if Dupin had stated who the character was. Otherwise, full marks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a fan of Dark Tales It got even better with this one. I got stumped on one part but with the help of the walkthrough I made it just fine. I cannot wait till the next sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for a great game without the horror This was a very fun if not real challenging game. It did have lots of fun puzzles and a really great story line. I LOVED the Newfie dog helper. Thank you so much for a really good game without all the blood, guts and horror aspect. The bonus games was worth buying the CE version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun HO game This game from the ERS stable provided me with several hours of entertainment.I played in casual mode. There are two types of HO scenes, traditional list and outline-logic. Mini games aren't too difficult and can be skipped if the brain is on strike. Music not intrusive and voiceovers and cutscenes worth a look.
