Oldschool adventure game with tough puzzles

First of all, when you take the road to try this game, expect playing with low resolution and old graphics.

Second, the game is still good. It is reminiscent of old LucasArts games in that the game won't hold your hand when it comes to the puzzles. You really have to figure them out on your own (walkthroughs, begone!). And succeeding in that feels rewarding.

That the other controllable character is a ghost creates a nice dynamic to the game since a ghost cannot pick up objects a normal human can, for example.

Recommended for friends of adventure games.

Gameplay may not appeal everyone

Be warned that this game has a kind of gameplay that not everyone likes. But i really feel the storyline is good just that the gameplay could be polished better so they are more responsive.

Storyline is rather emotional but having to go through the gameplay is quite tedious because the graphics are not of my style so i am not really pumped to play the game and try it out.

Overall, game is more worth to try if there is a sale. Maybe around 2 bucks then it will be worth the price.
