5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of puzzling fun, April 4, 2012
This review is from: House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets [Download] (Software Download)
Kate Reed, a struggling author of supernatural fiction, is invited to a séance at a place few people ever enter - The House of 1000 Doors - a haunted house that materializes for short periods of time in different locations. Once there she is pulled into a mystery - a mystery that includes an old murder that she has to solve.

"House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets" is a nicely done hidden object/puzzle game. You have two choices of game play: casual (60 seconds for the hint button to recharge and zones that can be interacted with are highlighted) and expert (two minutes for the hint button to recharge and no highlights). I like the casual mode because it is fun, still challenging, but not frustrating. There is also a map that shows you where there are locations you can solve puzzles at - I loved this feature and used it constantly. The hidden object puzzles have just the right level of difficulty with some nice touches - sometimes you have to move objects within the scene to find other objects or you might have to put two things together to make the object you are looking for. (If you are new to these types of games there is a tutorial to help you along - if you know how to play the game skip the tutorial as it is useful but can be annoying). The (non hidden object) puzzles also have just the right level of difficulty and some nice twists - for example in one puzzle instead of clicking on the objects that are different in a painting you have to click on objects that are exactly the same. My one complaint about the puzzles is that you often have to find keys to open things - there are way too many keys you have to look for. The storyline features a well written (if at times sad) story line with a beginning, middle, and end that make sense. The graphics are nicely done (at times gruesomely so) - there is a nice blend of life and still action. As an added bonus you can look for 35 "beyond" (morphing) objects - they change appearance if you look at them long enough.

"House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets" offers hours of hidden object/puzzle solving fun. Highly recommended.
