Just about anywhere you go, you'll hear a spooky story about “the house on the hill”.
Legends of ghosts, blood, and murders spread suspicion and fear around town. If you happen to be at the smoky local tavern on a rainy night, most certainly you will hear fragments of wisdom about the house. These are stories within the story, quietly whispered by the locals as a warning to unwary newcomers. Be warned: these are stories which will never be openly acknowledged, so don’t even try to mention them outside of this circle...
There are many stories but one common theme... stay away from the "Haunted Manor".
That night I should have followed this advice. I should have stayed in the comfort of my warm hotel room... unfortunately curiosity prevailed!
Faithful to the legend, I arrived on a stormy night at the red blood cast iron gate of the old secluded mansion. After that... all hell broke loose!"
How brave are you, young adventurer?
We shall see!

This is one of the better "escape a haunted mansion" games. It's challenging without being impossible, but sometimes the answers can be slightly oblique. As other reviews have mentioned some of the puzzles can have solutions that make little logical sense, so you devolve into aimlessly tapping around the screen until you stumble upon the way forward. The clock puzzle is one that springs to mind.
My only other complaint is that while the art can be well done, sometimes the backgrounds are murky and bleed together making it hard to differentiate.
All in all I'm enjoying Haunted Manor, and will likely continue the series once I've completed this first part.
So the game is very challenging... and not always in a good way. There are no instructions and no hints, which in a way is fine because it makes you explore and figure things out on your own. But as another reviewer stated, things start getting nonsensical and there's no option for even a small hint to help you decipher the game's internal logic. One example: you have to find pieces for a grandfather clock in one of the rooms. You get them all, except it's still missing its pendulum. You could search forever for this pendulum, but you'll never find it. However, something already in your inventory (something absolutely nothing like a pendulum) can substitute for the missing part. How would a player ever know this?! In addition, as the game goes on there are more and more doorways and rooms and sub-rooms. None of them are marked in any way and there's no map, so you keep going from place to place trying to figure out where you'd seen something that you now need. And once you finally find the area, you sit there like a dementia patient thinking, "now what did I come into this room for, again?"
On the positive, the graphics are well done and aptly creepy for an app of this title. I liked small touches like tapping on certain objects in some rooms causes a voice or a visual effect. It could really be a great game if the logic behind tasks wasn't so random... or at least give the option of a hint every now & then.
Excellent and Challenging
Yes, it is unrealistic that these disjointed puzzles would be all over a mansion for you to solve. It's a game though, and isn't that what games are supposed to do? Make us imagine that we've encountered car problems during the middle of a torrential downpour, to discover a peculiar mansion. Instead of helping ourselves, we take on the task of finding out why this mansion seems to be stuck in time. Discovering the odd and sad story of it's last occupants, and hopefully trying to save them.
The game offers many challenges. If you play the brainy version, be prepared for no clues and touching your screen like mad. If you play the easy version, when clicking on a clue a few times you get a good hint or a vague hint as to what you need to find.
Overall, one of the best room escape games I've ever played.
