    I wrote this 2 years ago, when I had just started playing HOGs. It's not much, but consider it a place-saver. I'll redo it when I finish the others on my list Rolling Eyes

    Classy HO For Fans of Pure HO

    Game Style: Strictly HO with a few easy puzzles. I liked the cursor hover silhouettes, and it’s just as well, because the hints are limited and this is a very hard HO. Very. At least I found it so. Being able to finish the chapter with a couple of objects unfound is a good idea.

    Artwork: Delightful for its time. Clean and crisp. I liked that there was little distortion in the HO scenes. The voice over is so creepy I jumped every time I heard it. The intro and map are pretty basic and don’t indicate just how good the HO scenes really are to watch.

    Story: There is no real story here; this is not an adventure game. But it held together well, and focussing each chapter on a single suspect was a nice twist.

    Replay: Only if I was in the mood for strictly HO.

    Flaws: The limited hints make the game harder than many would like.

    Tips: Skip between locations when you get stuck in one. It may be you don’t need those last two to continue.

    I Recommend This Game!

    When this first came out, all I was playing was HO's. I loved this game. It was
    beautiful. I can never go back to straight HO's, but still remember this one
    with Two thumbs up

    I'm about the same, I could never go back to HOGs except for a rare few games and this is one of them. I like the Golden Trails HOGs still too. But as I never get around to playing games more than once every couple of years, now, occasional returns to HOGs are fun.
