Detective investigating Supernatural murders.
A detective style, hidden object & games, adventure story. You must gather 13 cursed cards that have caused the death of several of the towns inhabitants and uncover the story behind the phantom organ grinder's need for revenge. During the course of the adventure you will meet a wide array of supernatural beings, from headless horsemen to golems. And of course your animal assistant is a little phoenix ! HOGs are colourful and clear. Games are not bad. The items to be gathered included a few too many of the usual tools, shears for ivy, the ladder & rungs, the corkscrew and jar of oil, the acid & lock. However there were also some more unusual associations which redeemed it. The strangest thing about the game is that the villan speaks in a rather dodgy faginesque voice but you get used to it. The game includes a useful location map that shows your where the current action is and enables you to go directly to it, which speeds up game play. When playing the HOGs I found that I could not view the third line of the list of objects, below the picture, when I was in full screen mode. Consequently I had to play part of the hog in small screen mode and then revert back to full screen mode - mildly annoying.
