A lot to do and a lot of spiders!
June 17, 2013

The storyline is interesting. There are 3 game modes. - The graphics are clear, making objects easy to find. - The mini-games range from easy to challenging, and are not the ones you usually get. - You have a journal and a map, allowing you to jump to a location; good idea, since there is a lot of back and forth. But the map doesn't show you an active location so ... - ... the hint system is very helpful, showing the direction. Without skipping, and in Advanced mode, it took me a bit less than 3 hours to complete.

A web of challenges
January 5, 2013

I am so pleased I have purchased this game, as most of you know, I am a bit of a "blas?e" old biddy when it comes to HOS mixed with mini puzzles. I have so enjoyed that game: challenges/mini games were very good and could have been a tad more difficult in my mind for advanced level The story line was saved by the revelation of childhood upbringing The graphics were of good quality (cannot comment on the sound as I tend to play without it) The navigation was easy ... yes folks, I loved it!

Fun Game
November 18, 2012

I immediately loved this game because it automatically opened in widescreen, no black bars! Gorgeous clear graphics Choice of 3 modes of play : Casual - Sparkles for a HOS (Hidden Object Scenes) Sparkles not overbearing. Quick refill of Hint and Skip Advanced: No Sparkles, slower hint and Skip refills Hardcore : No Hints or Skips, although if you spend too long in a scene it will tell you there is something or not to do in that scene, which could annoy the more experienced. HOS are interactive and the objects are easily identifiable Choice of Cursors, the Custom Cursor worked beautifully, nice and smooth There is a Journal and map inside the Journal which you can use to Jump, which Everyone seems to like, I on the other hand like to wander, especially with a game like this one, as the graphics are so clear and colourful Live actors, although the Audio could do with a bit of editing in certain scenes Cutscenes can be replayed via the Journal, love this feature, a lot of the better Developers are incorporating this added feature in their games, adds to the enjoyment of the game IMO Puzzels were different and enjoyable, some were a little hard for me, took me a while to figure out, even with the instructions, but that's just me There are no Collectibles or Achievements (which is a shame, would have enjoyed collecting spiders or wasps) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Husband is killed and his widow uses his invention for evil. Your job is to stop her, and help a few others along the way, she has an army of spiders to do her bidding, there's a great fight between a giant spider and wasp, one of the cutscenes I replayed a few time, just loved it. I'm quite a slow player and hate to skip puzzels, unless I really have to, and the game took me about 5 hours to play. I thought the ending was quite abrupt, but a lot of the SEs are nowdays Overall a fun game, easy enough in Casual m

Good game, but.....

This is a well-produced game with live actors and good artwork. Game play is also well-designed without a whole lot of back-and-forth and with not many nonsensical uses of objects. The HOS all include IA and are pretty standard for quality. The puzzles are the standards, too. There is a map that allows jumping, but it doesn't tell you where action is needed. The HINT button works well during game play pointing you in the right direction. It doesn't tell you exactly what to do, but I like that. My only complaint about the game is the story. On the surface, it seemed like it would be interesting, but it is poorly told and full of gaping holes. The ending is very bad and abrupt - maybe the CE does better? There is a journal, but it almost seems like an after thought. It does store cut scenes, so you can go back and look at these. If you can ignore the poor story, this is a fun game.

Love It!

I love this game. The graphics are great, the ambience is great. Nice and gritty and realistic like I like it. Lots of puzzles which is my favorite. Not too easy not too hard. HOS are interactive and fairly easy. Not too many which is good. The inventory makes sense and not much backing up. Great game for the money. Quite long too.

Spider webs!!

Cool game, with interesting story and some spooky elements - graphics are gorgeous, movie like intro, cut scenes with real actors, good voice overs - music is good, contributed well to the game - storyline is, as I sad interesting with lots of things going on. You witnessed one terrible event, young woman was taken away by mechanical spiders and now you are determined to find out what is going on - 3 modes: casual, advanced, hardcore - you have a journal and a map, most important is that you can use your map to travel around - hidden object scenes are very well done, lots of interaction, beautifully done scenes - puzzles were a bit more challenging than expected, but that was not a problem because most of them were fun to solve, so I enjoyed spending a bit more time playing them Over all, pretty good game to play, I recommend it!

I loved this game. I am fascinated by spiders though I know the black widow is deadly. This game was addictive for me. I'd like to see more like it.

Three modes: casual, advanced and hardcore professional. Journal; interactive map. Mechanical spiders with live actors create a mysterious atmosphere that grabs your attention right away. Storyline was more interesting and unique than I thought it would be; and it?s spot-on today as bullying is a hot topic these days. Graphics are world class ? usually the color palette is bluish cast for this type of story; here the colors are vibrant and worldly. Interactive HOS with useful hint system. Wide variety of puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty. Well thought-out story and gameplay. Not too much backtracking. Game will hold your interest throughout.

Very enjoyable game - so long so as you don't mind spiders

Bought this as a special offer and was very enjoyably surprised. The graphics are excellent, including actual people as part of the cast of characters, there are good challenging games and plenty of hidden objects puzzles. Only minor drawback is some of the situations seem a bit contrived but that is a minor issue. Highly recommended - so long as you are not an arachanophobe.

Loved this game. The graphics are gorgeous and the HOS are very clear and not too cluttered. I like the interactive part of the HOS. The puzzles were interesting but I did have to skip two. The journal is informative and the added extra of replaying the video clips is good. Love the transporting map as I get very fed up with a game that has me running back and forth all over the place. The only thing that dissappointed was the ending. It felt that there was more to come but maybe you need the collectors edition to complete the story. I have a number of SE that do this and it is very annoying. Other than that it was a great game, Lots of challenges and good length.
