    Developer: Waterlily Games

    Well Designed Enjoyable Game

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    I won't rehash what all the others have said. This is an excellent, stylish game for the reasonably seasoned player who enjoys thinking as well as clicking. I particularly liked the way the story was portrayed, and remained interesting and clear throughout.

    The artwork was great too - for more read the other reviews, or better still try it yourself!

    I Recommend This Game!

    Me too! Excellent! It was the first HOPA I tried, after getting into the HOP games. Loved the room changes, loved the dialogue. A unique kind of game.

    I think I played this fairly close to Phantom of the Opera and loved that too. Two fun, involving games!

    Yes yes yes - phantom of the opera was the best of that series, but I admit I liked Sleepy Hollow too.
