great graphics! interesting storyline that kept me engaged. I played the expert mode with the longer hint recharges and penalties for mis-clicks. I liked using different areas of the game to complete each section. The map is very detailed and makes it a snap to travel to different locations to finish your tasks. Some of the mini games included Jigsaw and sliding puzzles. The hidden object minis were for you to locate several items, one of which helps you move forward in the journey. The hints during game play give just enough information to assist without completely giving everything away. I really love this game and look forward to playing more!
This bundle contains two Victorian Mysteries: 'Woman in White' and 'The Yellow Room.' Woman in White was introduced by Gamehouse in 2010 and was considered by most reviewers as 4 or 5 stars. The Yellow Room was introduced in 2012. The graphics are better, and the voice overs are quite superb. BUT--both games are short on help. The hint button is useless unless you need help within an HO scene. There is a map within the Task List that shows you where things still need to be done, but it doesn't mean you can do them immediately. You might need to do other things first. Both stories start out all right. Woman in White is this mysterious woman dressed in white who appears at a mansion and tries to warn the occupants of danger. The Yellow Room is a classic whodunit story with an attack in a supposedly locked room. You have both a detective and an ace reporter working on this one, and you are the photographer for the reporter. In either story, if you miss a clue you are more or less lost unless you go find a walkthrough, which can be very helpful. The HO scenes are a bit more difficult than the average and are very enjoyable. The minigames run from very easy to moderate. But the endings of both stories are completely wrapped up through narration rather than play. The Yellow Room has so many gaps you have to suspend belief. But the drawings are quite well done, the colors are good, and they are both worth playing. They are both short: Woman in White takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and The Yellow Room can be finished easily in 2 hours Taken together though, they provide a good dose of entertainment. Suitable for teenagers, but not young children.
