    Out Of Style Perhaps, But It Has Its Moments

    BASED ON DEMO

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    Another nice game that, while clearly down market, is a decent game, spoiled a little by being too slow. (I seem to be saying that a lot lately). This game does have a few redeeming features that should please many gamers – the puzzles are almost all originals! There is a considerable amount of brain power put into this aspect of the game, and the results show it.

    SIGHTS & SOUNDS

    This is a low budget game, delivered in an out of date style, and if that bothers you, this game is a non-starter for sure. The graphics are essentially comic book style, with some variation into pseudo-realism, particularly in the HO scenes. These were nice and clear, even if the items are very well hidden, and occasionally too small. Another way in which this game feels nostalgic is that it is based in an abandoned hospital – sound familiar? So the graphics are not beautiful nor cute.

    Another redeeming feature is the sound effects. These are a hoot. Wherever you go, remember to click on items around the room. Like the grandfather clock. The music is very pleasant. Voiceovers would be way out of this game’s league, but the dialogue is never much anyway.

    MAKING PROGRESS

    The searching for HOs is another return to previous fashions – the interactive list is on the left side of the screen, and often the items are in the general location, not a close up junk pile. There are also some multiple object puzzles as well. The puzzles/mini-games are to be found fairly frequently, more so than the HOPs. As I said, they are excellent, because I’ve hardly seen a one that was familiar even in principle. Some were extraordinarily easy, but some were hard too.

    There is a directional hint, and nothing else to help you on your way, but it really is enough. Although not necessarily overly easy, it is logical and straightforward in its gameplay.

    This game also has collectibles. 36 crystals, to be exact. Whether they are used in the game I do not know.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS

    I think this game has a place in the Big Fish pond (or should that be the GGG stable? Mouse pbbt ). It is well constructed and conceived, admittedly slow and dated, but I wouldn’t consider a punchcard coupon a waste for this one.

    I Recommend This Game!
