Hidden Object - Haunted Places Free
Hidden Object - Haunted Places Free
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The free version has many levels to try, 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not a fan of HO games, and got this by mistake. I played it, and it isn't bad. some of the objects are easy to see, but it gets harder. The free version gives enough levels to try so you know if you like the game or not. It works fine and is easy to understand and use. It just isn'y my type of game, but that is not the fault of the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly disappointing and unbelievable as they are written. The plots are disjointed and not good, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love short stories, but hated these. I thought the fact most of the stories are true stories would make this very interesting, but they are delivered so badly, they are simply annoying.
I don't want to give any spoilers so will be a bit vague, but hopefully you will get the idea.
The idea is that the ending hits you as a surprise and isn't what you expect, so...
The first story ended by telling you who had done it and how except 'the character saw Mrs X and recognised her from before - i expect you realised who she was before me' - NO I didn't and still have no ides who she is.The story doesn't tell me and the ONLY possible woman couldn't be Mrs X because she was in jail abroad. I even used the Kindle 'search book' to see who this was, but she didn't appear in the book.
Story 2 relies on 2 men who don't know each other going into the same shop to buy the same item and saying EXACTLY the same thing and doing EXACTLY the same thing. These men both come from different countries but happen to be in the same place, they also happen to have EXACTLY the same amount of money to throw away and they are leaving the country at EXACTLY the same time. There are more coincidences too. This is too far fetched to believe, and although this is based on a true story and supposedly really happened, the story needs more detail to bring it together. It needs explanations about why they both are willing to do what they do, why they do it and lots more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game, many not so fun players, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The game is great and works well. Unfortunately some players use it as an excuse to 'bully others into betting' rather than to play poker properly and this takes a lot of the enjoyment out of play. (They go 'all in' on EVERY hand and unless you risk it and are lucky, they drain your money). That said, if you come across a game where this does not happen, there is hours of fun to be had here. And it is free. You get free chips every 4 hours and if you have friends in the game you send each other chips. Worth downloading

1.0 out of 5 stars No logic or sense a terrible waste of time, 12 Feb. 2015
No rhyme, reason, logic or sense. This game ia awful on so many levels it is hard to know where to start.
The mini games are mostly all alike -you simply copy numbers onto the board.
There are no instructions for mini games
The activities are stupid - open a star crew using a spanner for nuts!!!!!!! Is an example
Each object you find takes ages to go into your inventory, and you can't more while this happens
Every time you stop you have to do the whole chapter again

l enjoyed this. You play against different players who do play slightly differently but not much. As a free game, this is definitely worth getting. It will give hours of fun and you can slop and start any point you wish

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly designed No fun at all!, 11 Feb. 2015

Right at the beginning there is a sentance, but the English is not correct, and this very bad grammar is not a good start.
Next the graphics are not good.
The games are so easy I checked to see if this was for 5 year olds or less, it isn't
You need to touch the chest and open it to get at your inventory, and if you use 3 things in one place, you need to go through this whole procedure
EVERY time
it was all so simple I tried a hint to be sure I hadn't missed something, this too is useless. You need to know at what point you are, and I mean point 14, point 27 etc, not in a forest, house etc, as you must click all sorts of things to get help, and only for the point you are at.
I played for about 5 minutes, visited about 15 scenes and uninstalled this becauseit kis a waste of space on my tablet
there are no instructions for the games so it is lucky they are so silly

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much wrong to be any good, 4 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are too amny things wrong with this game to list all, but:
1. It took hours, about 2.30 or more, to download
2. Thw HO games have very small writing
3. HO are not always as they are named
4. You need to really HIT the screen to collect objects, so often do not know if you are touching the right thing or not
5.mini games are for 3 -4 year olds, no older
6. You n1eed to collect symbols - and cards - and some other things, too much
The inventory disappears and when you try to see it the games takes you back a level
There is much more wrong, but you getthe picture.
Ihave muninstalled this and will not be buying the full version.

I tried this and then bought the full version, but you don't get anything new - just more of the same. The same products, customers and same things to do. Not worth the money. better to play the free version and not spend money to get the same thing again
