Tell Tale Heart - not for the feint of heart!

I bought this because I have enjoyed all the other Poe offerings very much however...although ERS did a good job with the artwork on this one let me say right up front there is a warning about graphic violence and they aren't kidding! Opening scene showing a woman getting her throat cut, spraying blood and hung from a tree. NOT for kids and more graphic than needed in my opinion. That aside I'm having trouble playing this one. Touch is a bit off, the majority of the items in your inventory are plus items with a crapload of smaller pieces. Over all it feels awkward and like they are overthinking things and trying too hard. I honestly don't know if I will finish this game as trying to manipulate tiny objects with poor touchpad controls is frustrating. A mouse would be more precise but iPads don't have them. Perhaps this game should have stayed in the pc/Mac side. Verdict: buy if you are a Poe addict or enjoy playing games where precision is mandatory. Otherwise skip or wait a few weeks when they offer it with a free trial. The dollar extra you spend getting it later might be worth the chance to get the try out.

Tell tale dud!

I usually look forward to these games as they are fun, good quality, and good stories. Not so much this time around. I hated the gore. I play these games to relax and loose myself in the gameplay, but can't do that if the gross factor is thrown in gratuitously. Story seemed lacking and incomplete, not to mention short and not worth the time or money. Puzzles were ok but nothing to get excited about. The big plus for this game was not having to run all over the place seeking bits and pieces in order to move along the story. Most everything was available within 1 or 2 screens of where you are.

But sadly that's the best I can say about this game. Devs take note: focus on good stories and challenging puzzles. No more gore!

I liked it!

Yes, it's graphic, but I'm not letting my 6 year old play it. And it's not THAT graphic. I think ERS did a pretty good job actually.. They made a wide range of varying tasks, from the usual HO scenes and problem solving steps, to more in depth puzzles. I really liked their concept of closely examining the body (in sections, nothing too revealing) and using the microscope. It's actually something I've only done here or there in games, not a lot, so I feel this is a unique game for that reason.
I didn't think it was too short, maybe if you skipped a lot of puzzles? Seemed average length to me.
Despite everyone else's negative reviews, I'm giving it 5 stars!
