Product Description

Grandpa always was a little eccentric. A fantastic engineer, he was always buried in his work, always coming up with new ideas and inventions that as a child held you wide-eyed in awe.

Now, after many years, you return to the house that holds so many fond memories for you, with a promise from Grandpa to show you something truly amazing. You can't even begin to imagine what it could be!

It's a dark and stormy night as you arrive at Grisly Manor. The rain beats down hard, lightning flashes in the sky as the sound of thunder fills your ears. You already feel a little creeped out, but when you make your way inside, the house is curiously empty. Grandpa is nowhere to be found!

But his presence is everywhere.

Familiar objects have been re-engineered to create puzzles for you. Clues abound, and as each puzzle is solved, the solution to others present themselves. As well as new puzzles, of course.

Grandpa obviously spent a lot of time making sure that nobody could solve the myriad of puzzles strewn about the house. Nobody but you, his favorite grandchild...

Can you solve the mystery of Grisly Manor?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! May 9, 2012

I was worried about this game playing on my Kindle Fire but it played beautifully. I see a lot of complaints about it being too short and it is a bit quickly played only if you're familiar with this type of game. Besides the game is only 49¢. I just wish it was longer because it was so fun. I did need online help with some of it. For players new to this type of game, ignore nothing and tap on every inch of the screen because if you don't you will feel like a complete idiot when you get help and realize the answers are staring you in the face. I know I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun, could be longer. March 23, 2011
Really great game, very fun. Graphics are amazing, fun story line. Would love to see a sequel or possibly a prequel? The only reason I didn't give five stars is that its a little short. Great job guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Game. Well worth it. October 8, 2011
This game was perfect for me. It is just the right length for those of us who just don't have hours to spend at games. There are a lot of us in that situation. I wish there were more games like that. The graphics were great.

On a side note. I am a software developer and know how many hundreds of hours can go into making an app and trying to make a living at it. Therefore I am quite bewildered by those reviewers that somehow can afford an Android phone but think that 1.99 is too much.

Thanks Fire Maple!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but too short July 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
This game was fun. You try to figure out what little objects around the house you can move and pick up objects like keys that are used to unlock new clues and tools.
Sadly it took less than an hour to get though it and finish the game. It may take longer if you are not experienced with this type of game. I got it free so it was a great value, but not sure I would recommend buying it if you want somthing that will last for a while.

Discovering clues and unlocking secrets is so much fun as you work your way through the old mansion in this app. The graphics and sound effects were incredible on the Kindle Fire. I would love to see more games like this one! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to solve puzzles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly fun May 21, 2011

I couldn't put this one down until I finished it (which, unfortunately, was only in a few hours). This game is seriously fun and gives a great feeling of satisfaction when you finally beat it. Can't wait for another release!

3.0 out of 5 stars Awfully short with compatibility woes (Fixed) May 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you like point-and-click adventure games, this may be your cup of tea. The visuals are quite good as well. However the game is not terribly challenging and it can be completed over lunch. There just isn't much content here. The most puzzling thing about this game is why the 16MB app doesn't support moving to SD.

Speaking of support, I encountered much trouble getting this game to run. I originally purchased this game for my Tegra 2 powered Viewsonic gTablet (Froyo, 1.2-4349 stock for those interested), but could not get it to run. The app would simply force close on launch, even after a full reboot and a reinstall. The same thing happened with an ASUS TF-101 (Honeycomb), another Tegra 2 device. It did install and run without a hitch on a Dell Streak (Froyo) which incidentally uses a Qualcomm QSD 8250. After reading reports of issues on the Atrix, also Tegra 2, I am inclined to believe that Nvidia's SoC is not supported. If your Android device uses Tegra 2, I would advise caution before purchasing this app until an update is released that explicitly addresses this issue.

UPDATE 11/17/2011: An update released over the summer has fixed the noted compatibility issues. Score adjusted from 2 stars to 3. Low replay value and short gameplay dictate the score.

Compatibility: Works on Dell Streak. Force closes at start on gTablet and TF-101
Tested Devices (Device - OS version - Chipset):
Nexus One - 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3.3 - Qualcomm SnapDragon 8250
Dell Streak 5 - 1.6 and 2.2 - Qualcomm SnapDragon 8250
Viewsonic gTablet - 2.2 with stock 1.2-4349 and 2.2 with Enhancement Pack - Nvidia Tegra 2
Asus TF-101 - 3.0.1 and 3.2.1 - Nvidia Tegra 2
Samsung Galaxy S II - 2.3.4 - Exynos 4210
Amazon Kindle Fire - Custom 2.3 - OMAP 4430

I, too, would be interested to hear recommendations for games similar to this for my Kindle Fire.

Man, I wish they would re-do 7th Guest, 11th Hour and the Myst series as apps or do sequels. They were easily my favorite PC games back in high school many years ago.
