So far so good!
🤨 Groundhog Day Nightmare+No Skill Required
What exactly is this and who’s your customer?
If it’s an interactive story for Young Children with the most basic skill levels... you’ve hit your mark.
(making the dead characters and mature themes highly inappropriate)
😕You’re one of my Fav Developers and Expect SO MUCH MORE.
The game began with such promise:
Custom Difficultly, Loud Upbeat Movie Quality Sound, Fast Moving Images, Decent Graphics, (overly saturated deep jewel hues - not a fan) Interesting Characters and a Storyline that quickly Hooks you .....
😭But my bubble of Excitement quickly burst, seeing the exact same items and going through the old motions of a stale routine.
I don’t want to waste time finding the Map, Journal, etc.
(have everything already in place) 🔭
much less engage in painfully boring redundant tasks of unlocking with pins, retrieving items from birds nests too far too reach out a window (or squirrels/mice), manipulating zipper pulls, cutting stitched up seams, etc....
and especially the maddeningly ridiculous simplicity opening the case.
It’s bad enough including the code written on a cheat sheet,
that you must use to solve, but to already have a cheat sheet, and having each number light up when correct ....
is the epitome of BORING,
the equivalent of a Preschool toy...and as much excitement as a log of wood.
(Ren & Stimpy Commercial excluded)
By continually repeating the EXACT same Blueprint for each game, the exact same steps, the exact same points throughout the game, utilizing the exact same items and either exact, very similar or UGH, even easier Mini Games and Puzzles....it’s recycling the same basic game over and over.
Utilize your company's talent and creativity to the fullest and continue to introduce new modern ideas, with unique challenging and Stimulating Mini Games and Puzzles - that require Logic and Skill.
Half the time I touch anywhere close to the bottom screen it brings me back to the previous area.
But it’s especially problematic while watching the Will Video, because if I touch anything near the Hint Button, I immediately exit the Video....which means I can’t use Hint if I needed to.
Split DownThe Middle!
It was a good game but not one I’d keep or could say I’d play again. I find myself waiting for some developers to blow some new life, creativity and innovation into this IOS hidden object games. They just seem to all blur into the same games these days with slight variations! I know there’s lots of customers waiting to spend their money when something new starts developing in these games!!!!

I enjoyed the plot of solving murders in a spooky mansion on a remote island. The hidden object games were plenty and fun. Great game. Keep them coming.

UPDATE! December 7: On December 12, Artifex Mundi will release Yuletide Legends. In case you are wondering, Domini will finish out the year with 2 more games. One will be the next installment in Spirit Legends, and the other will be their annual Christmas Story game.
Note to all gamers: Elephant stopped releasing games. I spoke to an executive at Elephant and it seems that they do plan on releasing games in 2020. I’m trying to get more information.
BIG NEWS: Outside of this month, Domini released one game per month this year. HERE IT GETS EXCITING! In 2020 we will all be able to take advantage of their subscription model! Oleg plans on releasing 4 games per month (48 per year) on the iOS platform! My work paid off. Eventually I will give you more details but isn’t this exciting?!🤙🏻🤩😀 I vowed to keep this genre alive, even without BigFish, and with my beloved Catalina, we did it! I can’t wait to share the rest with you, but not yet! Dream Team Elite, spread the news so the other gamers know to start the subscription in January!
As far as this game went, I’m keeping my review brief. I was thrilled with the storyline, as it was NOT fantasy-themed. It was an homage to Agatha Christie, with the murder suspects being picked off one by one in an isolated mansion, and as the detective you must solve the crime. The game was good; however there were certain technical issues which could NOT be ignored. At times the screen was incredibly non-responsive, and if I didn’t have the match-3 alternative I couldn’t have finished the HO scene. I also had to tap hard and repeatedly to acquire inventory items. The game was sluggish, and the complex items did not combine immediately. However, once Domini updated it, the game ran way more smoothly! Did any of you notice that Oleg and his programmers finally gave us a zoom feature in the HO scenes? There were plenty of puzzles; however most of them were unoriginal, mundane rotational types. Still and all, the gameplay was fast-paced and the game was a decent length. My rating will remain at 4 stars. I deducted a star for the technical issues I have noted that still plague the Domini wizards. However they are striving to get a handle on these issues so that next year is better for all of us!
As for the BigFish rumors, a few developers have told me that we won’t see the return of Karp.
Enjoy the game and relish the great news which I have imparted to you!

Finally got to lay after deleting and reload but have
to tap forever on actions before it works! won't buy
Sorry not feeling it
I found the game to be difficult. I had to tap more than several times to get items in the HOP’s and the price was not for me. Big Fish may be back so I will wait... one new game came out for $3.99 no subscription needed.......I really liked Oleg but now seems to be a bit greedy. I”lol save my money but thank you for trying😊
This is the best game I have played in a very long time. It has everything one could want from a HOAG. I especially appreciated the variety in the many puzzles along the way. No glitches, long game play, what more could one ask for? Thank you, Domini!
I just love this game. It kept me guessing to the end. It has everything anyone would want in a game. Thank you again for such a wonderful game.
