    The Agency of Anomalies: Mystic Hospital (IHOG)

    There are separate sliders for music and sound, plus options for full-screen, wide screen, and custom cursor. Sometimes you will have just the background noises, such as the cawing of a bird, or the sound of the wind. It's a nice effect, all very environmental Smile

    You have a journal that contains by Goals and Story, plus a separate Top Secret file that will show you patient charts.

    There are two types of hidden object scenes:

    The first is your standard find-items-on-a-list. There are more items to find than are listed, and each time you find something, a new item will be added until you've found everything in that location. The scenes are not terribly crowded, nor are items tiny or concealed by poor lighting. Thanks for that, devs! Some of the items to find will require some kind of interaction, and these items are indicated by being listed in the color red.

    The second type gives you inventory items that you must return to the scene. These are lot of fun, as they requires you to really study the scene. Sometimes items will be used in ways that make perfect sense, but that you might not have thought of, initially

    Using the HINT button during the adventure portion will tell you either that there's nothing to do on that scene, or will highlight the area you need to pay attention to and give you an image-solution.

    The story is interesting, and though reminiscent of Green Hills Sanitarium, different enough that it doesn't feel like the same-old, same-old. Gameplay is nicely varied, there are many tasks, and the storyline is strong without drowning you in things to read (although I like a lot of story in my games Belly laugh).

    This is a long game, and not one that's easy to walk away from for days at a time. It was therefore a poor choice for me to play at work - I keep getting lost! Snicker

    An excellent game for IHOG-adventure lovers, for certain

    Never be a prisoner of your past.
    It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.

    Paranormal Approach to Tired “Abandoned Hospital” Tale 

    Sunny Sunny Sunny Sunny 


    Or is that paramilitary? This game contends with those tried and true villains – the army and their mad scientists, using the Anomalous Activity Detector (aka Hint).  This device identifies areas of interest, and if asked, the solutions. This can be surprisingly unhelpful, and recharge is slow, so the game is not easy.

    The HOs and visuals are the usual grungy rat holes you’d expect from an abandoned hospital, but they are well done and for the most part appropriate to the location. They are both lists and return items, and each HOs is visited three times. There are few puzzles, most reasonably easy, but skipping one costs you 30 minutes of game time, so that’s just as well!

    This is the first of a series of three games each of which is increasingly well done, but it is still an excellent place to start your career with the “Agency of Anomalies”.

    I recommend this game!
