For some reason, the game just display the splash picture, and doesn't run. I have windows 7. I attempted to run it with compatibility settings for Windows XP, but no luck. Anyone had similar issue?

Rafal, I'm running it from Windows 7. I started it from the 'Program files' where it was installed. When the splash screen appeared I clicked on it and a 'continue' button appeared and then the game started.

Rafal, I have Windows 10 and found the same problem. However, when I changed the comparability to 7 in the properties - left click on the game file - then the 'Continue' button appeared. This option didn't appear before no matter how much I clicked the screen. When I changed the compatibility, I didn't even need to click the screen. I'm glad both you and Paul answered as, though, as it gave me a clue what to do.

Owned since 2014. I gave it a slightly above average rating back then, with a note to myself NOT to replay it.

On the positive - Once you get the hang of things, it's kinda addicting. It has mini-quests, mini-hogs, a ton of items to collect, it's very long, you can play it in small bursts between (or during) more difficult games. Good distraction for pain.

On the negative - It plays like a F2P or 'pay to win' type of online or FB game - with the PAY part removed. It's kind of confusing starting off. It become quite repetitive and annoying after awhile.

Your miles may vary. Enjoy!

I have had this game for years and have yet to finish it. I go back to it when I have nothing better to pass the time. Yes, it's somewhat addictive, but also, it's too hard to level up, or rather, to get to where you can open up another room, which is what would help end the game eventually. If you like old style horror movies and HOGs, this might be for you. If not, move on to something more modernistic. It has a real gothic feel to it, even the foreign sounding English mistakes fit the mood, as if you are a tourist in old Transylvania. You probably won't die, which is a refreshing change from most monster games, but you'll probably be here awhile.

First of all, the game isn't completely polished, there are translations issues, some text gets cut off in boxes and sometimes the generic placeholder "Text" is on a scene's thumbnail. Getting pass all that, this isn't a game for those who like high difficulty Hidden Object Games. Hints seem to have no recharge and energy charges back up over time pretty quickly as you use it.

That said, I love the mechanics in this game! It reminds me a bit of Hidden Chronicles that I used to play on Facebook, without the irksome 'bother your friends for this and that'.

You click the castle and pick a room to search, starting with the Living Room. It's timed, but so easy, moreso with hints, that you're unlikely not to finish. Sometimes you'll get the list as text, other times as silhouettes. On completion you get EXP and silver (money). Leveling up gives this game an RPG feel and gives a sense of purpose to your searching. Some rooms require level 7, for instance, to open.

Enter open rooms as many times as you want, the only requirements are your character level and energy. The Butler's Room is available after doing the tutorial.

Money is used buy weapons to defeat the monsters lurking outside the castle, buy bonuses in the shop and open up new areas on the periphery of the castle, like the Snowglobe.

Another element that gives the RPG feel is the Side Quests. These are seen on the left side of the screen. The Butler will ask you to find his monocle. The silver reward for these are usually more than 1k.

Another mechanic is like is Collectibles. These drop from defeating monsters, occasionally by completing rooms or finishing side quests. On the right side of the screen, you can click the icon to view your Collection. Completion gives rewards like silver and xp. This is super fun to me and defeating monsters doesn't seem to take up energy (could be wrong there).

There's also this: "Level up rooms to search for more items". Hm. Haven't seen this in action, but that's a genius way to make up for entering rooms repeatedly, if it works the way it implies.

Things I don't like:
. Bonuses:- no description of what they do. Maybe I missed something, but it seems you have to buy them to see their function. The glove gives you 10% more XP. There are lots of these and silver is easy to get, but still.
. Snowglobe:- It's pretty in there but I had to hint twice. Perhaps just my screen colours, but stuff in there can be well hidden. Maybe purposely done to up the difficulty of the game, as the Castle is pretty simple thus far.
. Typos: Just me, but I find it jarring and takes me out of the game a bit.
. Story: Good premise and set up, but cutting off paragraphs abruptly, not so good. I usually play this genre for the story.

Still... If you can overlook the niggles, not take the game too seriously and just enjoy the mechanics of the gameplay, with it's RPG / Collector goodness, it'll be a fun way to pass a quiet Sunday.

Cheers.

Lo'real Barrow, You have to click and drag the paragraph to read the rest of it, took me half a day to figure that out.

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  18 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

John, I tried scrolling some but hold and drag I didn't, lol. I was also wrong on the "Text" point. It's there to let you know if you're entering the room with Text or Silhouette clues, or at Night with only a flashlight to see a bit of the room at a time.

Played about 3 hours of it tonight and had to compel myself to close it. Very fun mechanics and the rooms do get harder as they level up - more items, but still 2 mins or so to search. Hope you're having as much with it as I am. Cheers. :)

Here are two reviews I found on Big Fish Games.

The first gives a good, detailed description of the gameplay and goals; the second is in agreement with gamer in this thread but goes into more detail (lol!). Between them, I think they give you a pretty good idea of what today's GGOTD is like, and might help you you decided whether or not to try the game.

pennmom36 on BFG:
"This game is very similar to Dark Manor, so if you don't like Hidden Object games that give you various quests to accomplish by searching the same rooms or locations repetitively, steer clear, otherwise, the graphics are clear and hidden objects are easy to recognize and entertaining to search for. There are so many features in this game that it may seem really complicated at first glance, thankfully there is a really helpful tutorial that will guide you through the main features of the game, step by step.
The first thing you will do is accept a quest from various residents of the castle, these are icons on the left of the screen with exclamation points. The quest will open up to show you all the information you need such as, what the quest is, what your reward will be for that quest, how much experience you will gain, and even which room or location. The next step is to enter that area and search for hidden objects shown on the right side of the screen in either a list form or silhouetted shape, and the scene will either be in the daytime or night which is a dark room with just a flashlight to search with. There are various tools you can purchase to help with the HO's such as a Marmot to stop time for 30 seconds or 60 seconds, a Magnifying Glass which will point to one object or 2, Dynamite which explodes 5 items and even a Golden Flash to increase the size of light during the night scenes. When you are done with the HO scene, you click on Get Rewarded to receive your reward.
Don't forget to rid the castle of those evil minions! Click on the minions to learn what it takes to kill the minion, usually this means you have to pay for the weapon that will destroy that particular minion, again you just click on the rewards that the minion leaves behind. You will occasionally click on the Collections icon to review what items you need or already have in order to complete several different collections or weapons. As you gain experience you will level up, the higher the level, the more locations you will unlock which will make the game less repetitive, so try to stick it out because the game really gets interesting when there are several locations available, enjoy!"

Gembirdie on BFG:
"This game is organized exactly like some free-to-play games, especially the one called "Found". It even uses the same music!
Like those free-to-play games, you have to find objects in the same rooms over and over, and the same objects stay in the same location, so that they're really easy to find.
The storyline is poor to non-existent, and the challenge is to advance far enough to open new rooms and collect more stuff. Of course, in the beginning you advance relatively fast, but with each repetition, the game slows down more. That means that you have to do more and more for less and less rewards.
Totally pointless and boring in my opinion..."

gamer, WHAT exactly was "annoying" about it? The gameplay? Graphics quality? Storyline? Speed? Music? Control responses?
It would help if you can tell us all what you hated!
