This is an extremely well done game. I played it a couple times before ever getting Steam and then, once I became a Steam addict, I bought this game for the cards. And played it again. And now I'm playing it for the fourth time. Yes, it's really that good. If you're a hidden object fan, you should definitely check this out.

A decent hidden objects game, albeit quite easy in terms of puzzles. If you are looking for a charming story and a decent atmosphere, look no further. The story draws on clichees of occult practices and occurrences to create a setting that suits this genre well. However, if you care for puzzles that this kind of games are usually strewn with, you might want to skip this and find something more challenging.

Beautiful game, with many mysteries to understand. If you're into casual or HOG, it's a must.

This is a solid supernatural-themed HOG/adventure hybrid.

Gameplay consists of...
1. Item-based puzzles (find objects, then use them to solve various tasks). Most of the solutions are fairly straightforward, although it is easy to miss items if you are not being thorough. My only issue was the game's level of redundancy (i.e. needing two different buckets of water, a million keys, etc.)
2. Traditional hidden object screens of the "pile of junk that doesn't really belong together" variety. These were challenging, but never frustrating; the artwork was clear, the labels were accurate, and items were overlapping but not obfuscated. I would actually say these were some of the best HOG puzzles I have seen in recent memory.
3. Bonus hidden "beyond" objects that appear in the background art. There are 35 total to find in the main game (approximately one per screen).
4. A handful of incredibly easy mini-games (rotating discs, dragging lines, rearranging components, etc.) that provide a break from the main gameplay. Some of these felt like remedial versions of classic genre mini-games, although others were new and creative. Unlike other HOGs I've played recently, the mini-games complimented, rather than overshadowed, the hidden object sections.

There is quite a bit of backtracking, but since there aren't that many screens it doesn't feel like a slog. There isn't even a map because you really don't need one.

One thing I found surprising is the fact there is only one level of difficulty (medium). The game is very casual, with good puzzle feedback, a hint system that points you in the right direction if you need a nudge, and a built-in walkthrough (including all "beyond" locations) if you need a push.

A note to the faint of heart: the game does contain blood smears and references to death; however there isn't any on-screen violence, nor are there any jump scares.

What I wished this game had done better:
- Most of the voice acting is atrocious.
- The plot gets a bit lazy and convoluted at times, with the maguffin being almost forgot about during the main game (they do explore it in the bonus mission). It just seems like they wrote off any inconsistencies with "because ghost house."
- There is no incentive to find all the "beyond" objects other than personal pride. Other games I've played will let you unlock either gallery images or additional backstory notes.

Overall, I would give this game an 8/10. The story might not be the best, but the puzzles are strong and plentiful, and the atmosphere is satisfactorily creepy. If hidden objects are your thing, you will not be disappointed.

A fun and a great looking game as well. It does have some hidden object games however its mostly a lot of different puzzles. The story was interesting and the graphics are very colorful and they really pop. I had a lot of enjoyment out of this game.

This game is kind of in the same vien as Nightmare from the deep series. I also liked the voice acting as it adds to the game a lot. Also another nice thing about the game is it looks very animated and alive. I had a great time with this game and I enjoyed it a lot. A good buy.

The bonus game is long and thats a nice touch. Very nice game.

If you like finding stuff, this is recommended. Not so much hidden object as I thought as they are many other puzzles to not make it too boring however it is still a 'hidden puzzle' game so as far as that genre goes this is a nice game.

So don't buy this game if you plan on:
Shooting lots of zombies in the face
Shooting lots of people in the crotch
Shooting at all

Whats behind 1000 doors? Good voiceacting with lots of spooky stories because you play the super spook detective Kate Reed! The hidden object puzzles are real creative, instead of looking like a flea market threw up they fit the scenery for item hunting. There is a hint button, and the puzzles arent too difficult, but you cant stuck because if a person wants to just throw their life away they can hit the "skip" button bringing shame and dishonor upon their family. A helpful map indicates areas of interest because with 1000's of doors a map is kinda critical. ooOOoooo the artwork is so nice in this game, everything looks so spooky and the objects in the Hidden Object Games are very crisp and clear so people shouldnt struggle to much. This game plays like a book, its a very exciting page turner, where instead of just one story there are several stories to free the ghosts trapped here on earth. The house can travel through space and time, so who knows where you might end up!

There is a bonus game after the main game that lets you solve some additional mysteries. More than just a mere room its a whole series of events, puzzles, and more hidden object games so this game is a good value at the price.

(A concept art gallery would have been nice because the art is very good, seeing how it came to life would be nice.)

A great Hidden Object game. Remember those Highlights magazines or I Spy books as a kid? Its kind of like those, but throw in some puzzles too. Its nothing too hard though. So if you are looking for adventure or a challenge I'd say look elsewhere for this is for those who enjoy the journey and story and its not how fast you can get through to the end. What it is, is simple problem solving and a whole lot of finding things that are hidden beyond others.

To put it simple it's a Point & Click. You go about the house pointing and clicking, sometimes "dragging" (rarely). Most doors and objects of intrest are locked. Sometimes you can go and find the key, other times you play a mini Hidden Object game (which you can hop in & out of fairly easily without losing what you found so far, which is a plus). Upon completing the mini HO game you are always awarded a object that you will need (its worth noting: usually the object awarded in question is one of the objects found in the mini game). Aside from the hidden objects sprawled about the house, there is a great deal of puzzles that must be solved to obtain other items of intrest. Also there is a tie-in with ghosts and such; you help ghosts sovle mysteries based upon themselves. In doing so, you resolve their need to be at peace.

Such is how this game is played. I find it soothing. Relaxing. A quaint little title (or not so little, but still) It's not an adventure, its an experience. And I enjoy it.

This game gets a "Yes" from Awsome Weegee.

Very good HOG with an engaging story and challenging puzzles, especially if you play the hardest difficulty. The protagonist is a young novelist that receives an invite to a misterious house to participate in a séance. She'll have to help the spirits trapped inside the mansion to bring them eternal rest. On Steam you can find the collector's edition which has a bonus chapter and some nice extras.

A very nice game, but when you' are a hardcore HO gamer this one is too easy. It's more a game when you;ve got nothing to do and don't want to think very hard. Buy the Sinister Bundle , now it's for sale, saves you a lot of money and this game is also included!

I did not enjoy this game as much as I've enjoyed other Hidden Objects games. Partially this was a matter of game mechanics. (For example, hiding objects inside of objects, or having to repair or transform them for them to 'count' for your search. Half the time this was figuring out the hotspots within the puzzle screen, and less about actually seeing a hidden pattern inside of a larger picture.)

[Update: I recommend other users play this on 'Casual' difficulty setting, as this will minimize the interface level issues.]

However, I really did get into the whole idea of the House of 1000 Doors itself. That part tying the whole game together across space/time/afterlife was very interesting.

There were aspects of the quest/story that just went ... nowhere. (i.e. What are the Beyond Objects for, and why can't I see my progres, or lack thereof, anywhere within the game interface?) The original game ramps you up to make an interesting choice, and then suddenly ENDS ... without actually giving you an oppurtunity to choose your final outcome at all!

However, I did really enjoy the Collectors Edition content. (Extra Chapter/Myster to solve, Strategy Guide included with game, and Wallpapers, etc.)

I recommend the original game at 3/5 Stars, but I'll give it an extra star with the Strategy Guide, etc. contect included. It was enjoyable, and I did play it all the way through, but it was not compelling! I was slightly disappointed, even for a casual/hidden objects genre game.

Final Rating: 4/5 Stars (With Collectors Edition content bonus)

Value for price? I think this is worth the $10, but this is definitely a game I'd recommend if you can catch it during a Steam Sale.

Update: I did NOT consider the value of the Steam Collectible Card drops when I originally reviewed this. If you merely trade them away for cash in your Steam Wallet, these are worth $1-$3, each [at the time I sold mine]. Expect up to 3 to drop while you play this game. (Theoretically, this game pays for itself, that way.)

Decent music (though not much variety), interesting story lines. There is a bonus chapter but no unlimited hidden object mode. Fun for playthrough.

Average game.
Mainly, find-the-hidden-objects.
Average story behind, lots of find-the-object, less puzzles.

I enjoyed Myst back in the day so I thought I'd give a point and click mystery game like this a go. It amused me for a little while, but basically it quickly turned into going backwards and forwards between less than 10 rooms endless times to complete tasks- many more figuring out what it was you had to do. It started to become one of those games you feel like playing with constant references to a walkthrough, which got boring very quickly as there was otherwise little point.
