    Waste of money

    If i could give it no stars i would. It never installs. And going to the developer is a waste of time. They make you fill out the request for support multiple times but never help you. I filled it out twice in 5 minutes and when it wanted me to do it a third time, i gave up.

    Love this game!!!

    Great game, like that it has built in cheats for when you get stuck and need a little direction! Fantastic ending, never would have guessed what would happen. Please make more games like this.

    Great for .99

    Enjoyed this. I agree with one reviewer, nice to have a bit of help and skip on the puzzles. that round puzzle with animal, veg, machine, insect items. Never could figure out how to get all alligned, then i noticed it had gone to skip when blue bar filled. I totally appreciated or i might never had made it to bed.

    Like many have also said, similar in searching a land as lost city and grizzly manor. Kinda liked the picture searches this game had. Helps to have a very clean touch screen on a few items.

    The theme at the end is a bit crazy, not for everyone. A bit gruesome for younger players. This is definitely aimed at adults.

    Great game!

    Very intersting game and storyline. The only thing that sucked (and prevented a 5 star review) was it kept turning black and just freezing at what i assume were the story visuals between episodes, so I didn't get to watch those. Overall, though, definitely recommended!

    Good game except for the lotion glitch

    I liked the game, unfortunately I wasn't able to complete it because the lotion I needed wouldn't come out of the safe. I even tried restarting the game. Not really worth the money if you can't actually finish it.

    Doesn't work

    Won't run at all. Very annoying. Wish I could get my money back. I wonder if all the positive reviews were written by the developer. I wish I had checked the reviews before I purchased it.

    Well done!

    If you like games like "Grisly Manor", you'll LOVE this one. It's longer, more fun and more challenging. The storyline is detailed, has nice graphics, includes cut scenes, and it is science fiction/fantasy but not overly done (well, until the end scene). I wouldn't recommend it for young children because it can get a little graphic or scary. The game has you tap your way through the story, finding and collecting items and putting them to use. It also includes some hidden object scenes and mini mind games. It's nice that if you get stuck, you can skip the mini games or point you in the right direction. I had no problem installing it on my Nook Tablet and there were no problems with the game itself. My favorite game so far!

    Violent ending

    I was disappointed because the violent ending ruined the fun of the game. The rating should have indicated "some violence"!

    It's a good game if you're up for vague, confusing endings that answer none of your questioms whatsoever.

    It was a good game as far as puzzles and hidden object scenes go. I had played it with my little sister, and she and I were both having a lot of fun. Following the plotline was a bit of a challenge, but not too difficult. But the ending was so bloody anticlimactic. I mean, *SPOILER ALERT* he suddenly finds Angel, runs with her, finds some random submarine and escapes in it, and then she kills him and he turns into some kind of lizard creature? The ending was obviously rushed due to a looming deadline. And what happened to the townsfolk? If you didn't read the diary entries (which I know most people skip over), you have no idea what's going on. And in all honesty, after collecting all of the keys for the door, I was expecting some super-secret society or something INTERESTING to be hiding behind such a complicated puzzle. What do I get? An underwater cavern leading to a system of tunnel-caves that evetually lead to some kind of snake-themed sacrificial altar. And it never clarified why Angel was being sacrificed. Who were the "THEY" that Rebecca's diary entry referred to? Why was the woman closed inside her room? I had so many questions by the end of the game that I just sat there for a few minutes, contemplating what the makers of this game were thinking. I wouldn't play this one again, and that is something I never say about this genre of game.

    Awesome

    I am still slack jawed at the work put into this app! Simply awesome! Thank you very much for the hint and skip buttons. The app loaded just fine on my nook color and I had no problems like some reviewers have had. The ending makes me want more. If you think it is too violent, watch the news and grow up. Any app put out by these guys is worth paying for. Make more pretty please.

    Great Game!

    I loved this game so much that I bought the other two in the series for my pc. The game does take about 3-5 minutes to load with wifi but it is so worth it!! The graphics were good, the story was interesting and the mini games were challenging. Grab it while it's only 99 cents!
