Suburban Timewaster

I play video games and review them.

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.
