    Truly Creative Use of an Old Gimmick

    Having completed the trial version twice (did CE as well), I'm still not 100% clear as to how the game will play, but it has this to recommend it.

    The story is based around a spooky deserted mansion, with that also-now-familiar twist of a shadow world behind the real one. What makes this one original and interesting is the uses that you can make travelling back and forth through the rooms, hiding objects in the 'then' and digging them up in the 'now'.

    The music and sound are both great and the atmosphere is suitably gloomy. My biggest reservation about this game is the graphics -there are plenty of HO scenes, well drawn with very interesting use of brightness in the 'shadow' world, but all scenes are close to monochromatic, at least in the demo. That puts me off a bit. I like colourful games.

    The gameplay itself seemed fairly standard, and I enjoyed being able to work the puzzles myself - no skips in this one so far, and I finished the trial in just under an hour, which I take as promising 4-5 hours. Oh, and hint is really really quick, so if you must use it, at least you won't be stalled for long.

    In all, not a game on my 'must have or I'll die' list, but definitely on my 'punchcard weekend' list.

    I Recommend This Game!
