Strange Cases: The Lighthouse Mystery - The Classic Story
Strange Cases: The Lighthouse Mystery is a new hidden object game with everything it takes or a good HOG. The story if full of everything unclear and mysterious. Be read to deal with searches, missing scientist, dead FBI agent, trail of clues, unexpected end.
Some dreams are better left to be unreal pictures for a night.
FBI agent Claire Ellery had a bad dream, the one you wouldn't want to remember in the morning. A mysterious woman with a glowing blue pendant. A
dead FBI agent and a missing scientist. But sometimes the nightmares come true. The next day Claire finds out that her former partner and mentor, Tom, is dead. Now she is to follow the clues and find out what happened.
Tom had written lists of clues on the backs of illustrated cards
and stashing them throughout locations ranging from his apartment and
his office to an abandoned shack, an underground laboratory, a fallout
shelter and more. That sets the scene for the hidden object levels where you first find the cards and then the items listed.
There are three different types of cards, each
with a different style of clue: Blue cards have a straightforward list
written on them, green cards display silhouettes of objects and red
cards show items
that have been broken into small pieces which must be found and
reassembled. Each level in the game can contain as many as three hidden
cards, one for each type. Now you have an idea of how much of the game is made up of searching.
Most levels include at least one "interactive
item" which must be used elsewhere to move the game forward. Levels aren't timed but too much random clicking
will earn a "cursor penalty" that sends the pointer spinning out of
control for a few seconds. Several puzzle are mixed into the game, and they are quite entertaining.
You can find yourself wandering around every once in a while trying to figure out what to do next, but doesn't overshadow the good parts.
