    Blood Oath
    Review from June 19, 2010

    A spooky IHOG-lite, complete with blood (gee...), pentacles, vampires and anything else the developers could think of to creep you out It's really not that bad, creepy-wise, but the squeamish might have troubles with the hint meter.

    Search for objects by silhouette. There is a glowing light above each item, which I initially thought was odd, but it's actually a hint. Items without a glowing light can't be found on the scene until you do something interactive. A nice little addition to the difficulty is that there are sometimes multiple items to interact with (and find objects for), and each item has a separate list of to-find items. You can automatically switch back and forth between them (when you find the right items), or to make it more challenging, find all of one object's
    items before going on.

    The hint meter takes a while to charge, but there is a way to get it to charge faster by doing a mini-game. Collect "cards" in each (indicated) room to access game, which will allow you one of four bonuses (I won't give it all away).

    Unlock new powers as you progress through the game - powers that will enable you to move further about the mansion. A nice touch that will keep you from wandering around in places you don't need to be yet.

    Between the story and the music, this game is immediately immersive. I even forgot that I was supposed to be writing a review! A definite thumbs up from me This is going on my to-buy list. Perhaps my SOON-to-buy list!

    EDIT: Make that my BOUGHT list!
