I had the fearsome pleasure of playing the Big Fish Games “Haunted Halls: Fears From Childhood” with Horrorcrone. This game centers on evil Dr. Blackmore and his evil experiments with stealing children’s fears through a mechanical mirror of some sort. The graphics were awesome! Especially in the game’s introduction. In the beginning of the game after you press “Play” (if you don’t skip it) this very well drawn animation with amazing graphics is shown. One thing that was great from the intro was a normal teddy bear suddenly glares up at you with its sharp and threatening teeth! Horrorcrone and I were not at all expecting that!
Your task is to save several children from their fears. For instance, one child’s fear is wolves. Once you save him from the wolf, his fear of wolves is no more! Through puzzles and hidden-object games, you succeed in your goal. But it’s not so easy! There are many obstacles you must face to reach your goal. The storyline was not over complex, fast-moving, and engaging. However, we found the ending rather abrupt! We were left wanting more. No outro, no back story of Dr. Blackmore,it just returned back to the main screen! But overall, this game was very fun and interesting. We rated it a good 6 out of 10.
