This is the fourth game in this series, and the closest to a sequel of the first game House 1000 Doors: Family Secrets. (I have played all 4 games in the series, in order.) It is stand alone, as is, but the series storyline might confuse a player as the game briefly refers to previous game adventures in single "throw away/reveal" lines depending on how much of the series storyline is known.

The story: The Palm of Zoroaster, a cursed orb, has been destroying things, people and quite possibly civilizations (or at least, select parts of it) for centuries. Your job is to destroy the orb. (No spoilers because there are some if one has been following the series storyline.) Learn the orb's history, witness its destruction, and of course discover how to destroy it and gather the means to do so.

The game is set up with an introduction/tutorial, four adventure chapters, and the final conclusive chaper. I rather like this setup which is different then other HOs with a much more linear storyline. What changed in this game from the first game (Family Secrets) is the player does not get to choose which adventure to embark on first. For this game and storyline purposes it is perfect though.

Hidden object scenes, mixed with some head scratching puzzles and the usual standard puzzles, plus some point and click and a chapter by chapter accumulate and use inventory. Nothing too hard or tear your hair out challenging. Game comes with a walkthrough the player can access if they get stuck in game or on a puzzle. Every puzzle has a skip option and sparkles on needed objects or mini puzzle scene. Unless playing in Hard mode. There are three game modes available, in-game achievements, wall papers and a bonus chapter.

Warning: If you are hunting for those elusive extra "hidden/ghost/shape shifting" objects make sure you have them all before leaving the introduction or adventure chapter because you cannot go back once the chapter is finished. (Except in a new game).

Opinion: I like the series, therefore I like each game. The overall concept is interesting and lends itself to innumberable further games. The only thing I did not like in this game was the end. I was expecting a much longer cut scene. It ended and I thought "Wait, that is it." The adventure ended, the game ended, but the end felt truncated. Ah well the bonus chapter made up for the abrupt conclusion.

The "House of 1000 Doors: The Palm of Zoroaster Collector's Edition" is a bit short (6.3 hours base game + 2.2 hours Bonus Chapter = 8.5 hours total), but not unduly so for this type of game (casual point-and-click Adventure Hidden Object Game (HOG)). The story is a bit weaker than the norm for the genre, but otherwise, t's pretty much standard fare for a HOG: good graphics, fun puzzles, acceptable voice acting. The $10 list price is a tad high for it's length, so I'd wait for a sale to buy it or get it in a bundle (the Sinister Stories Bundle is how I got it). Still, I'm recommending it.
