Picked up Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart during a sale. This was my first Hidden Object Game, didn't even knew this sort of games existed. :)
You play a female museum curator whose daughter is kidnapped by an undead pirate. Quickly you find yourself in hot pursuit to set her free. The game is the first part of a trilogy.
While I didn't have high hopes for this game, I quickly found myself hooked on progressing through the game. The main game is a point & click adventure, but combined with 3 types of sub-games. First there are puzzles, which are usually not too difficult to solve. Second there are the hidden object games, where you need to find a list of objects in a single scene. And third, mahjong. Mahjong? Rather strange, as Caribbean piracy was already stopped by the time this Chinese tile game was created...
I found the game addictive as you quickly pass puzzle by puzzle and the story line opens up. Not a must-play game, but quite entertaining.
+ nice graphics
+ steady game progress
+ decent story
+ additional bonus story
- maybe a bit too short?
