Somewhere deep within the woods a timeless force is stirring. Beneath the ancient burial mound, known locally as Barrow Hill, a forgotten myth awakes.
Join the adventure, and uncover the secrets of the past. The legends of the Ancient world will live again; renewed, refreshed and hungry. Time has no meaning, as the sun sets low across the landscape.
Come to Barrow Hill and solve the mystery of the Druid's Circle.
Stranded on the lonely road, which leads up to the Barrow, you must make your way through the trees, and darkening landscape, and out onto the Barrow itself.
Following in the footsteps of the well-known archaeologist, Conrad Morse, you will discover that the barrow is more than just a mound of earth and a collection of forgotten standing stones.
However, not all archaeology is constructive, for some things should be left buried and undisturbed. Perhaps it is too late for that…

Barrow Hill Curse of the Ancient Hill is one of many adventure games set in dark and gloomy atmosphere. This time we will try to uncover the secrets behind Barrow Hill - an old burial mound.
I really liked the visuals and atmosphere in this game. It kinda reminded me of the movie - Blair Witch Project. Sometimes the atmosphere is really heavy and disturbing - poor lightning, shadows and stuff can really give you the goosebumps from time to time. The gameplay, sadly is repetetive, and gets boring quickly - the riddles are pretty easy and doesn't require lots of thinking. Also, the game is short - you can finish it in few hours.
Is it worth the money? Yeah it is, but not for the full price of 9,99$ if you'd ask me. Get it during a promotion, and you shall be satisfied, howgh!
