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 is th prologue of the upcoming The Last Crown: Blackenrock. Appropriately set on Halloween, Midnight Horror returns players to the English coastal town of Saxton, in which something is haunting the guest rooms above the local harbour-side pub. The game features the same third-person perspective and black-and-white design aesthetic with touches of colour for special effect. The gameplay is very similar to the first game - mouse controlled with symbols on the screen to show where you can focus, interact with objects, move to or speak with people. In addition, of course, there are the ghost gadgets that you can use on objects and locations later on in the game. I think it is very easy to pick up the gameplay again if you've played The Lost Crown, but not particularly difficult if you have not. In general the game played fairly smoothly. There were a few points at which it was not obvious to me what to do next. However, in practice, there were a limited number of locations to move to so I did not remain stuck for very long. A small range of icons indicate interactive items or locations, and arrows indicate exits from each scene. Double click to jump to the next scene, or calmly walk across the current one. I would recommend it to anyone who likes the genre - although I would strongly advise playing The Lost Crown first.
