A Most Curious Disappearance

Your grandfather, a highly eccentric inventor, has mysteriously vanished, and the police have listed him as a missing person. But you receive a letter from your Grandfather dismissing reports of his disappearance! "Please come at once," his letter says, "I have something to show you!" Just what is your grandfather up to? You're about to embark on a very strange hunt for clues in his foreboding and strange mansion, Grisly Manor.

Prepare to be Puzzled

The Secret of Grisly Manor is a classic game of hunting down the clues and solving the brain busting puzzles. Scattered throughout your grandfather's mansion are a series of weird, seemingly unrelated objects that hold the secret to his whereabouts.

As you explore the manor, you pick and store items until you need to use them. What the devil do you need that fishbowl for? Which way should the four wooden owls be facing? And how are you going to extract the wrench that's frozen solid in the freezer?

A Classic Legacy

If you're a fan of Myst and other puzzle adventure games, you'll enjoy The Secret of Grisly Manor. Fire Maple Games went all out with whimsical graphics and realistic sounds. You'll feel like you're gliding through Disney's Haunted Mansion as you wrap your mind around your grandfather's beguiling clues. Don't forget to look under the rug!

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Game. Well worth it. October 8, 2011
By Joshu
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this puzzle game! November 22, 2011

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good January 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Let me start off with I only paid .99 cents for this app and it played very well on my kindle fire hd and that is why it got 2 stars. The game itself is very short which I would have been fine with for a dollar but add that to the fact that there was no hint button and no instructions to any of the games and the clues where very obscure and where not at all clear which puzzle they went to, and then the ending was just weird. Anyway I don't recommend this game at all.

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!

I loved this game, it was outstanding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing if you've played the others from Fire Maple. If not,...
This is the least entertaining of the trio of adventures available from Fire Maple (the others are The Lost City and the Hidden World), mostly because it is by far the smallest. Read more

My 5 year old son and I love these Fire Maple Games. The puzzles are challenging but not overly difficult. The pictures are very cool. Good times!

4.0 out of 5 stars sort of short, but super fun
I really liked it, but wish it was longer. All of the fire maple games are excellent. Highly recommend them. I just gave 4 stars because that is, in my opinion, an excellent score.

3.0 out of 5 stars too short disappointed.
After the longer gameplay of The Lost City, and Mosaika, this game is quite a disappointment. Decent puzzles, but took little more than a half hour to finish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs easier acess to help.
This app I found very challenging. I could not solve the problems and I thought it needed some way to access help screens. I was stopped by one door that I c would not open.

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.
