Fun diversion with many puzzles and locations

Overall, I enjoyed this game and would recommend it. Most of the puzzles weren’t very hard but were fun, and there are many new
locations to visit and solve. My two complaints would be that sometimes I felt that items were spread far apart just to make the
game last longer. There’s a lot of time tra

Fun and challenging. Love this entire series

It was confusing but we eventually got into the swing of the clues. Have all these games and play them over and over. The kids are
really good at beating me! Well worth the price for the game, hints, and clues.

It started off with some obscure puzzles...

The game started iff with some obscure puzzles that were not very intuitive to operate. Once I got past those I was able to work
out just about everything else and the game was mare fun during the last 2/3s or so.

Another Great Game

A lot of fun and much, much more challenging than the first one. Some of the clues were very confusing and not very intuitive,
but overall a very solid game. Definitely worth your $ and time.

Best one yet, but not the easiest

I have been a fan of point and click games for a couple years thanks to Syntaxity’s Blackthorn Castle. Once I tried it, I was
captivated by the calm music and ease of gameplay. Since then, I have purchased and extensively played each of their games much
to my satisfaction.

I was quick to discover

Great Adventure Click & Solve Puzzles

I love these games. Both 1 & 2. Any game similar to The Room is what I prefer. I enjoy the challenge and no glitches.

This is a great adventure, some familiar places and a lot of new ones. Great puzzles that get you thinking and a great story as
well. I had a great time and I will suggest it to others, because it is great.

I have played all the games this company made. This one is by far the largest and most complicated one yet. Highly recommend
this, but only after completing one or more of the others first.

Some of the clues didn’t make sense

I love syntaxity games. I’ve played them all. They’re at a level of difficulty that’s not too hard and not too easy. Their
clues and puzzles have always been logical and easy to interpret except for this game. Some of the clues, even AFTER I watched the
solution video didn’t make sense to me. I jus

Fantastic Game

This is the third game I have played from these developers. They are fun to play. I wish I had known about the bundle before I got
these all as singles.

Good game. Good length. Lots of twists & turns. My only quibble is that some of the clues were pretty dense. One or two I
couldn’t follow even watching the walkthrough repeatedly.

'Exactly what I asked for'

'Thank you Syntaxity as this was just what I asked for. This is the same basic premise but more & different puzzles, and this you
have to pay for. At least that way you can be relatively sure you are getting a good game & without unwanted ads which I must

'Mostly very enjoyable'

'a couple of ‘clues’ were really obscure, and some of the ‘mechanical’ puzzles (usu involving dials) were not much of a
puzzle, but overall a good game with enough real estate and pleasant graphics.'

'Really, really enjoyed it!'

'I loved getting immersed into the scenes, stretching my thinking, and the overall game play. I only found one puzzle that the
logic still escapes me, but the rest just required sometimes thinking beyond the obvious. Although I didn’t use any hints, I did
think it was a little cheap to charge for

'Man, I love these adventure games! I do my best to play a little at a time to stretch it out but sometimes I get sucked in and

'Solid point and click adventure'

'Just like the other Syntaxity games, this one provides a few hours of hunting, searching, and puzzle solving. Nothing annoyingly
tricky here puzzle-wise, but enough to scratch that puzzle solving itch. I like that the Syntaxity games make an effort to have
the game tell a story, even if they are

Not intuitive

Compared to Blackthorn Castle 1 this is very confusing. The puzzles don’t always make sense. There is a hedge that needs to be
trimmed but clicking on it gives no indication that it’s of value. Why would you need to attach a magnet to a fishing rod?! We
needed clues more often than we should have if

Not the best

The puzzles have very little to do with the clues, the videos are not helpful. It’s lovely to be back in this
familiar-yet-updated environment, though.

I’ve played all the games from syntaxity. They are all pretty decent, but are getting a bit monotonous and cryptic. Lots of
running back and forth, lots of click-everything, and inventory items don’t feel very meaningful.

The real kicker for me is the in-app purchases for an app I already paid for

I like to play these but the puzzles are the same from one game to the next. Once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all.

I wish that the company wasn’t so greedy to stick it to the loyal buyers who have bought their games for many years, and helped
them stay in business.

Have played them all and this is my least favorite. The hints to some of the puzzles just didn’t make sense. But that probably
won’t keep me from playing the next one that is offered by this

Lots of adventure/scenes to visit. Puzzles were mostly easy. In game clues often obtuse. I did not appreciate having to pay for
hints and jump map so I did not. Use the online walkthroughs.

Subpar with a side of meh

There’s no reward system with any of these Syntaxity games- 90% of the puzzles are solved by finding in-game clues verses using
intellect. Once the puzzle is solved you find yourself facing another ludicrous puzzle instead of receiving inventory; then you
have to travel all over the map bouncing her
