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.

House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets is the first game in the House of 1000 Doors series. You're a young woman, lost in a mysterious manor that appeared suddenly. In your way to find the mysteries of it, you'll meet the inhabitants... and understand why it's called the House of 1000 doors... as they're appearing and disappearing...

It's an HOG, so, you don't have to expect much than point, click, solve puzzles, find items, etc..

What makes that game so enjoyable is the storyline but also the beauty of the scenes. The game isn't too hard too.

It's not Artifex Mundi behind it but it could have been them as the game is really good.

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

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.
