About This Game

Welcome to the Curse of the Werewolves - a hidden object adventure game with blood-chilling visuals and an enthralling storyline.

Delve into the dark story of Ashley and help her unravel this blood-chilling adventure. Out of the blue, Ashley receives a strange postcard from her grandmother, who lives in Maine on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Ashley tries to contact her, but the phone went unanswered, which was completely out of character for her grandma. Baffled and troubled by these strange events, Ashley travels to her family's old manor, only to find her favorite childhood place deserted and neglected. It is up to you to help Ashley unravel the secrets behind her grandmother's disappearance and save her from the looming threat of the ancient curse.

The search for Ashley's grandma will lead you through the dusty rooms of an old mansion and its eerie corridors. You will tread the misty moonlit forests, the rocky cliffs of the ocean shore and the echoing depths of the ancient passageways. Many grisly secrets await you in the darkest corners of the mansion and many terrifying obstacles stand in your way. Soon you will discover that most of the mysteries have something in common, because they share the same grotesque detail...

Will Ashley be able to find her grandmother? Will the dark and bloody secrets of the Curse of the Werewolves stay forever shrouded in obscurity? It is all up to you! Are you feeling brave enough to take this journey?

* Unravel the dark mystery!
* Discover numerous blood-chilling locations!

Now lets start of by saying do you believe in werewolves and the supernatural,YES ? or NO ? it makes no difference as if you like hidden object games you'll love this one.
The game starts with Ashley (who you play throughout the entire game) looking over some old photos and then talking about something that happened a while ago and then of you go into the game through a story that is being told in the present but you are living through in the past (so whatever you do you know that at least Ashley survives the adventure-and no spoiler as this happens right at the start).
Then you travel to your Grandma's to find out why you havent heard from her in a while and to find out exactally what is going on and why ??
Now to say more than this will spoil the story no end but lets just say some things you will see just are'nt for the faint hearted,but its one game you will enjoy playing through if your heart will let you,as you wonder just when something will jump out at you or you will see something horrible.
The graphics in game on the most part are of the static variety (are'nt they allways in these games) but they are presented and drawn in such a way as to draw you in and when the game does throw some moving images at you they are all the more attention grabbing for it.
The music in game really suits the nature of the game and the spoken dialogue is all delivered well by the cast (most of the time though you will just be listening to Ashleys voice and we could have done with a few more characters to flesh things out).
The gameplay consists of the static find the object variety to the solve the water by moving the pipes ones,but all in all these are entertaining and never get old or outstay their welcome (there is no button to bypass the puzzles which does make it more challenging than most HOG's as some puzzles can be quite abstract).
The games story is really well written and i for one did see what was coming but it was still a very satisfactory ending to what is a well developed and well put together game.
Now let me say this i think this hidden object game is aimed more at the mature audience than most as some scenes can be quite (for use of a better word) horrific and therefore some may find them unnerving,but for this reviewer i just wish there were more games of this type out there in the hidden object genre that focused more on telling an adult story.
Will you like this hidden object game,well if you like this type of game and are thirsting for more then yes you will as its one of the best out there,if its not your sort of game then i dont think any of this genre will ever change your mind.
Just remember whilst playing some parts are really quite challenging so dont let it get to you or make you "HOWLING" mad.

I'm recommending this if you enjoy hidden object games and find this game on sale.


- Hidden Object areas are not too easy and not too difficult.
- Dividing the game into "figuring out where to use items", puzzles, and hidden object areas: the HO areas gets the highest percentage - which is what I LOOK for in hidden object games. :)
- Story was by no means a masterpiece but definitely intriguing.
- Music was suitable for the story and didn't distract or annoy.


- WAY too short. I completed everything and I mean everything (main story, small closing story, bonus game) in 5 hours. I took my sweet time and never used hints or skips. Most people will probably finish well under 5 hours.
- Bonus game is not an addition to the story. Instead, they give you jigsaw puzzles of 3 of the backgrounds. But ONLY 3. I like the idea of HO story jigsaws but for $9.99, they should have had a much larger selection.
- A few things seemed unpolished and for those who like cutscenes, you won't find them here.

All in all, I enjoyed playing this game but I feel like I didn't get my money's worth.

Not bad. A bit simple. The plot is a bit weak, the puzzles pretty easy. The ending a bit disappointing. I completed it in 2h. So, maybe not worth 9,99$. Better wait for a lower price.

Please don't waste your money on this game!

I play a lot of point and click games and The Curse of the Werewolves is one of the worst. The only good thing I can say about it is that the graphics were pretty good. But, the decent graphics couldn't hide the fact that everything else about the game was garbage.

This game lacked everything new and challenging that other point and click games have. The "story" was miserable. Now, most point and click games have ridiculous stories and I appreciate them for being outrageous because they believe in themselves. The problem with The Curse of the Werewolves was that it had NO story when, given the subject matter, it could have had a really good one. Werewolves are scary and exciting, right? Not when its just granny wolfing out and accidently killing the neighbors. The End.

The game was unacceptably short, even for a point and click. I played through it in about 2 hours. For a $10 game, I find that to be almost criminal.

Pretty good game, the story got my attention right away. The game seems like a mix of point and click adventure with mixed in hidden object scenes and mini games. Also there is a bonus section, where you can try and battle some jigsaw puzzles of images from the game.
Well, I was hooked right away, so I decided to make a let's play out of the game :
