Scrooges victim lies motionless with a knife in his back. There arent any witnesses… or are there? Travel back and forward in time to get help from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future in this Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game. Can you uncover the dark side of Charles Dickens famous Christmas Carol story? Help Marley get revenge on the old miser and murderer, Scrooge in Twisted: A Haunted Carol! (BigFish Sales Blurb)
An interesting twist on the original, already spooky, A CHRISTMAS CAROL story, you play as Marley’s ghost to bring Scrooge to account for his crimes. The game-play is a bit slow-going at first, as you have to feel your way through parts of it, despite the Tutorial which is not very specific. The Options are Basic. The Graphics are clear but dark at times, though very well designed – an authentic setting for the period of the narrative – and could be a little clearer for the Hidden Object sites.
You can use items on each within the Inventory bar which is helpful. You have to collect Keys, and find Timestones in each site, in different time-zones. You use the Timestone on the nearest clock as required, then complete the Puzzle to change time-zones. Future, Present, and Past tabs are located in the top corner of the screen. The game-play involves a lot of b & f (back and forth) which gets tiresome.
However I did enjoy this game enough to buy it. I recommend it as in interesting Scrooge game.
