ENGROSSING!

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.

About judsartwork

I write reviews of Adventure and Hidden Object games that are Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, Renovation, Travel, Quest and/or Mystery by genre. I have a Masters in Writing (2006) and have been writing novels, both crime and fantasy for many years; plus Haiku, verse, and prose both fictional and literary. I am also an artist of modern, Acrylic, textural and hard edge work, underwater, fantasy, expressionist, and Cosmos paintings. I use mixed media (Acrylic, Watercolour, Pastels) in textural Monoprints, finding surprises to expose within each work. Having both an analytical and creative mind has meant that I have strong powers of observation, and the persistence required to follow computer problems through till I solve them. Of course I am not always successful, but am willing to ask for a little help in order to then unlock the main problem myself. My Troubleshooting Blog, 'Problems and Solutions', was the result of my tenacity.
