Enchanted Cavern
 – 

Don't bother

This game is very frustrating. There is scant instruction. The time clock is very vague and there is no help if the time is tight. It's not as if I wanted a hand hold but so many times you get to within ONE square and the time "suddenly" runs out. It isn't a game of skill but of total chance that the squares fall as you need them. I like a challenge but this one is down to pure luck only so save your money unless you like swearing and getting stressed. I have abandoned it. Permenantly

Fear for Sale: Nightmare Cinema
 – 

Lost the plot

Unlike the CE version which seems to have issues in the bonus, this plays ok till the end. I play a lot of HO games but this one left me cold. Sure, graphics are good and the HO games are the same as expected but the plot was shallow and rushed. It just didn't grab me. I just felt like I was walking from room to room aimlessly and some of it was very random. As for the villain, he was too easy to defeat. No challenge. A game for a wet afternoon if you are bored but nothing else.

Otherworld: Shades of Fall
 – 

Better with each game

Played both Summer and Fall and this is the better of the two. You really don't need the CE version to enjoy this story which has a fourth one coming I suspect to conclude it.

Otherworld: Omens of Summer
 – 

Enjoyable

Missed out on Spring as it isn't available on Macstore but you can pick up the story quite well without it.

Creepy

If this doesn't put you off clowns then nothing will.... seriously creepy and sad yet good.

Mystery of Unicorn Castle: The Beastmaster Collector's Edition
 – 

Incredible

This is a reasonably long and not overly complicated HO puzzle game but the twist on this is the "Karma" moments where you choose the result. Played it both ways. Interesting...

Mystery of the Ancients: Three Guardians Collector's Edition
 – 

Oh dear

This is a great interesting game and I loved playing it BUT sadly never finished as it has a glitch almost near the end which meant I couln't complete it. I really enjoyed it too. :(

Dark Parables: Jack and the Sky Kingdom Collector's Edition
 – 

Another great chapter

These dark parables are great, challenging with a good storyline and the insertion into the story of a glimpse of the next adventure to come...

Nightmares from the Deep: Davy Jones
 – 

Lovely end

I have played each of the three games in this series and each is great, this being an excellent ending to the story. This game is far longer than expected and the puzzles are good. I recommend the series.

Redemption Cemetery: Bitter Frost
 – 

Short but great

This is a good HO game though a bit short with only three "adventures" it could have benefitted from a fourth. It makes the villain a little half hearted in her efforts. That said, a great game but not the best.

Mythic Wonders: The Philosopher's Stone Collector's Edition
 – 

Amazing

I play a lot of demos but rarely do I use up the whole hour! This is a beautiful game, great graphics, lovely story, The speaking voice just adds to the story and great puzzles. All told the best game I have played in a long time.

The Chronicles of Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream
 – 

A map needed

Not the easiest of games to follow but about the fairies - when you are required to "follow the fairies" click on the middle pale fairy and note the colour changes. Next follow the faires of those colours in sequence, Do this twice and you will get out. Several other puzzles such as shine the statue also need you to think outside the box to solve them. Otherwise a good but slow game

Spirits of Mystery: The Silver Arrow Collector's Edition

Brilliant game

Good graphics, great puzzles and a good story backed up by fun extras and a long bonus story which has a nice twist to it. I recommend!

Haunted Hotel: Eclipse Collector's Edition
 – 

Great graphics

This game would have got a 5 from me except for a few niggles - great graphics, good puzzles BUT no map so you have to trog back and forth from room to room AND the story. The "scary" characters were dull or dead. The villain was about as believable as my cat as a fighter pilot! but otherwise ok.

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride Collector's Edition
 – 

A really good game

I won't spoil the end but this is an unusual game. Good puzles and the elusive hidden extra finds in each scene can be hard to find. worth the money and if you ever find it on offer - a bargain!

The Keepers: The Order's Last Secret Collector's Edition
 – 

Good game

Got so wrapped up in this tricky game with so many places to navigate I forgot the morphing items half way through!

Grim Tales: Bloody Mary
 – 

It's ok

I have all the previous Grim tales and expected this one to be in the same vein. It is a good story and puzzles but it has left the characters from the others behind and we have a random new family. Otherwise good

Dark Canvas: Blood and Stone Collector's Edition
 – 

Worth a try

Tried the demo. Puzzles are good and maybe it's me but I just couldn't get into the storyline.
