There are amusing and worthwhile qualities here. A sense of black humor animates some of the HOs. Most of the screens have grace notes, almost Easter eggs. For instance, when I idly clicked on a
broom, it came to life and tidied up a spot on the floor with a chalk outline of the deceased maniacal movie director obsessed with authenticity; in another, a bowler hat--dancing toward eternity--bobbed its way off camera.
Unfortunately, the technically well done graphics are too blue and purple. I can only stand to play for a few minutes at a time. Also there is too much hand holding. I can understand the choice to do so because the colors are disorienting enough to make the action hard to follow. I still don't like it when silhouettes inform me exactly what an incomplete inventory item needs. That said, if you can take the colors, this is a fairly good game.
