Return to the House of 1,000 Doors to save mankind from annihilation! Giant snakes have burst out of the Earth and are wreaking destruction across every continent. Your mission: travel back in time to four different epochs to gather the elements needed to activate a machine that can destroy the ancient beasts! (BigFish Sales Blurb)
This sequel HOUSE OF 1000 DOORS is great, has good Options, Casual/Expert Difficulty Modes, and 3D CG characters which is always a plus. As usual you find ‘Beyond’ Objects – those that Morph back and forth from normal to Evil objects – and Hidden Object sites with Lists of HOs, plus Pics of HOs to be placed back into the scene.
There is an excellent Interactive Map, and the Graphics are a little Harry Potter-ish in places, which means they are imaginative, colourful, entertaining and captivating. However they could be a little clearer in places, especially HO sites.
The game play flows and you have choices for the order of Play. You reach a point where you step through a Portal into other past times, as you try to rectify what occurred then in order to set right what has happened in the present.
I highly recommend it – I bought it immediately.
