    BASED ON DEMO

    What a terrible disappointment! From the video and screenshots, you couldn’t tell what quickly became apparent. This game is bad, with no redeeming features.

    The INTRO did let you know just how awful this was going to be, with POOR VISUALS, mixed ‘large file’ style graphics, with comic style. NO VOICEOVER and blurry text on the subtitles. Throughout the game there is a lot of dialogue with the same blurry text, in speech balloons.

    The game appears to be a HOG, but it’s a very poor one, with neither enough (preferably clear and interesting) scenes between the adventure, or sufficient adventure and puzzles to be a HOPA.

    The HO SCENES themselves were so sad. POOR QUALITY GRAPHICS, mediocre drawing, NO ANIMATIONS, altogether created a very FLAT 2 DIMENSIONAL FEEL. Lists were ever so slightly interactive first visit, not so the second.

    But on a smaller monitor they might have got away with that, except that the ADVENTURE component of the game was also SO LAME & IRRATIONAL, I spent a lot of time simply using HINT to get around to the next step rather than trying to guess myself. HINT is DIRECTIONAL, btw. So I guess that’s ONE POSITIVE FEATURE. There is NO MAP.

    At no time did I get any kind of feel for the STORY. I’m confused as to who is haunting whom, if any, and what’s this about live paintings. Mentioned earlier, and never followed through.

    I normally stick to a demo through thick and thin when doing a review, but when the HINT button stopped working (don’t know if I used it too much or a glitch), I called it quits.

    Unfortunately, unless you have a small screen and infinite patience, I can’t recommend this game.

    I don't recommend this game!
