Left in the Dark (Gamehouse.com)
Many years ago, a ship was lost at sea. Now the ship has returned with no cargo or crew on board. It’s up to a detective to discover what happened.
The game starts out chilling with a mysterious hook man lurking in the shadows. A ghost guides you throughout the game. At the end, the hook man starts talking, which takes away any creepy appeal he had. The ending also felt a little rushed.
This is another typical hidden object game. You go from scene to scene collecting items for your inventory. Some items require you to take part in a hidden object scene. The detective will write her thoughts in her journal from time to time and a map will guide you through the game. Use a hint if you’re stuck.
This game is creepy yet simplistic. I give it 6 out of 10; something to do when you’re bored.
