About This Game

Halloween: the veil between our world and the 'otherside' is at its weakest. Witches celebrate Samhain, a Celtic festival from the old religion, conjuring the dead and communing with the spirits. Nigel Danvers, ghost-hunter, knows all about the ghosts that dwell in the darkness, he has seen plenty to convince him there are dark forces at work. So, why is Halloween so different? Dusting down his old ghost-hunting gadgets, Nigel gets to work. Something is haunting the guest rooms above the local harbour side pub, The Bear. Who or what hides in the shadowy corners of the old Inn? What is the presence at the end of the Harbour Wall? Nigel has one night to find out, before the veil returns to full strength, and the Halloween Horror is gone, for another year.

The Last Crown: Midnight Horror

I once played the previous game The Lost Crown: A ghost hunting adventure, which I liked back then. It had a good story and spooky enviroment which was scary the first playthrough. That game took a long time to play through but it never felt dull and boring.

This game is rubbish. It only takes less than 3 hours to complete and at the end when the ghost hunting action is on the game ends, before that it's just a nonsense intro playthrough. The graphic is much the same as the original game, which was good enough back then but not today. The recently added 16:9 widescreen support is not native, it's just the 4:3 stretched out and it looks horrible.

Do not buy this game.

I adored "The Lost Crown" and cannot wait for "Blackenrock" to come out. "Midnight Horror" is something I highly recommend, but only for people in the same position.

i recommend the game but 'ONLY'' for people that have played the previous instalment the lost crown which i consider one of my top ten favorite adventure games of all time , this dlc just give fans something to put them on untill the release of BLackenrock.

now lets get into some constructive criticism
its nice to see the atmosphear and art style has remained true to the original but unfortunality so has the poor voicework that feels as though your listening to a preschool childrens tv program at times although there are some pretty funny lines in the game.
other things i dont like are the repeated dialogs trees with characters and repeated dialog when clicking on the same hotspot
plus the lack of a hot spot location system is a little inexcusable in a modern adventure game
but if you can get over that its still a nice edition to the first game and looking forward to the next chapter.

play time for me was 4.1 hours

I haven't finished it yet, but I'm going to list that as a selling point. For a game that seemingly no one knew was even being made, it's confusingly well-crafted and substantial! I mean it. The graphics are extremely polished. Animations are high quality and often pretty substantial. I'm a little curious why it's only estimated at being two hours long. Perhaps if you know exactly what you're doing in advance. Personally, I'm at more than three hours and I doubt I'm halfway done yet.

For $5, I'd say this is a no-brainer. The only negative thing I have to say is that the heavy atmosphere that made the first game so memorable is often absent here, but as an intentional plot point. You're literally at a Halloween party, so the game is a LOT more active and... goofy. Not at all what I'd say has previously defined the series, which may be a bit off-putting. Still though, all the old elements are present, and a real ghost story is coming to the front for me now.

Just in time for Halloween! Grab it!

A good, yet short teaser for Jonathan's next game The Last Crown: Blackenrock, many of us have waited a very long time to be able to play Blackenrock since The Lost Crown came out. This is a perfect Halloween story with lots of references to the first game.

It is very easy to get stuck and i found some items that seemed to have no point other than just being there. You will have to go back and forth a lot to check if you did the correct thing.

On the DJ Voucher scene, the game can bug out. Simply press F5 and hit No, it should bring your mouse pointer back up and you can leave the scene.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween! If you liked The Lost Crown, you will enjoy this short tale.

I just finished playing this engaging game. VERY cool and fun to see all the old "gang" again.
Love the black and white with splashes of colour.
I was sorry when it was over!
I only had one issue with the dancing but everything else ran smoothly .
Totally recommended! (I may have to play it again...)
Cannot WAIT for Blackenrock.

One minute into the game and my wife jumped out of her seat when she saw the trick or treaters pop up. Best $4.49 I've ever spent. Thanks Darkling Room!

The Last Crown: Midnight Horror is a nice short thematic point and click adventure game that is a direct sequel to "The Lost Crown" and a prequel to the upcoming Blackenrock game from Darkling Room Studios. Like most of Mr. Boakes' games, there is a lot of optional activity and superfluous items you don't need. I carried arround that Hot Dog from beginning to end for example.

The adventure places you once again int he role of Nigel Danvers as you try to solve what appears to be a haunting at the local pub. The game oozes with atmosphere and style and I love that the came has kept the mostly black and white graphics which made the original game, The Lost Crown, so striking. The music, mood, visuals and atmophere should keep fans of TLC and the Darkfall games happy from beginning to end. You'll also find that events are somewhat more randomized than in most adventure games which tend to be extremely linear. An event with the police didn't occur with me until the very end of the game, while for most people I've talked to, it happened at the very beginning.

Now that said, the game is far from perfect. Although it took me 4.1 hours to beat, half of that time was reloading the game due to crashes or stalls. There's a well known bug that occurs when you hand in the DJ Voucher. Thankfully this is not necessary to finish the game so just don't do anything with it if you get it. I was surprised the game crashed on me four different times. Once after the seance and three other times in different rooms. I could play Batman: Arkham Knight without the slightest hiccup when it first came out yet this adventure game crashed on me several times. So remember to save regularly so you don't have to repeat things like I did!

Another thing to remember is that the game has some very small hot spots and, unlike some other modern adventure games, you can't just click the space button to see all the available locations. This does mean you'll be huting and pecking for things that you don't see or just outright don't trigger right away. Some of these include the wall by the rotting fish, the pots int he kitchen, the keyhole on the fourth door in floor two you gain access to towards the end of the game and so on. So be prepared to be thorough and don't be shy in asking for help in the community boards if you get stuck. TLC fans are a great lot and already people have been helping each other out left and right here on the game's Steam board. There will be times you get frustrated. Then once someone helps you along, the solution will make a lot of sense in retrospect. Just remember to pass the help along.

Overall, Midnight Horror is a fun but flawed game. I love the artistic style of the game and the story told here. It's a nice classic ghost story in the vein of some great Victorian writers andf it was the perfect game for the Halloween Holiday season.

A fantastic game, graphically rich and brilliantly put together for Halloween. This game was very easy to purchase (and at a great price) and easy to download and install. The game has a great atmosphere, even the first scene makes you jump! A great purchase, highly recommended to adventure enthusiasts and ghost hunters alike.

Great game! Did not even know that it existed. It seems like a lifetime ago that I finished the first game (for the 4th time), and cannot wait for the rest.

Excellent segue to the final chapter in The Lost Crown Series. This transition piece was a welcome surprise by Jonathan Boakes, and ran about 5hrs of gameplay. The setting was lovely as always in Boakes games', and the atmosphere was suitably haunting (yes, the pun is intended). Plot was also egaging for a shorter game. There were a few thing that were left unresolved, but I'm assuming (hoping) those will be resolved in the next installment. Overall, well done and worth the price.
