An old-baking Hidden Object Game with boring Puzzles and a desolate Story. Resign to the Followers if you want a Game like this, but avoid this Game! 4:3 and a lousy Resolution don't really support the Fun of the Game.

The plot is easy to follow. The objects are very well hidden, too maybe. The game has no complicated puzzles. I strongly suggest backing up "hint" for the end puzzle. I played better hidden objects, but it's a good game.

So far, this has only been my 2nd Hidden Object game ... Now and after, I don't Feel like it anymore. Unlike the 1st, this one was quite uninspired and the so-called Puzzles more than easy. Even with several Breaks I had the End after already 4 Hours ... If you play continuously it takes maybe 2 Hours, Replay value is zero ... Good me that I got the Game out of some Bundle and didn't have to pay full Price.

£9.99For this ... * ZENSIERT *? Seriously? I love Hidden Object Games, most of them had a good Story, there were Dialogues Puzzles and and and! But that? Just good that I would have bought the Parts as a Bundle in the Sale for little Money, otherwise I would bite a Bump in my Beard with loudly Rage until my Pants fly away. Per? You can quit the Game and Uninstall it! Contra? Far too expensive, for such a thing boring from A-Z Definitely NOT buy unless it's in Sale!

Note: 4/5 purpose of the game: you are responsible for finding precise objects in details clutted with detail and you have to solve some simple puzzles to discover the mysterious assassin of Edgar Allan Poe. This kind of game clutters the small consoles, much less the PCs, which implies a certain indulgence due to lack of competition. We will just regret that the graphics are not more refined. Old PCs will install it without worry. Attractive enough to want to discover the end, especially as an optional help is present to help us find the objects. For the whole family.

Entertaining hidden Object game for hanging out. Here you take the role of a writer, who appears to him the Phantom of Poe himself to ask for help and with this solve the case of his mysterious death. The scenarios are varied and have some degree of difficulty, but the absence of difficult puzzles make it easily turn into a monotonous search and find game. I Must admit that certain objects are very well hidden and sometimes it takes minutes to locate them without using clues, which makes you enjoy the experience. Recommended for lovers of hidden objects and casual players. Personally, Samantha Swift and the Golden Touch I liked much more than this plus that in Samantha we see many more scenarios and we have a variety of puzzles to solve. 2.5 5 Star
