Grandpa always was a little eccentric. A fantastic engineer, he was always buried in his work, always coming up with new ideas and inventions that as a child held you wide-eyed in awe.
Now, after many years, you return to the house that holds so many fond memories for you, with a promise from Grandpa to show you something truly amazing. You can't even begin to imagine what it could be!
It's a dark and stormy night as you arrive at Grisly Manor. The rain beats down hard, lightning flashes in the sky as the sound of thunder fills your ears. You already feel a little creeped out, but when you make your way inside, the house is curiously empty. Grandpa is nowhere to be found!
But his presence is everywhere.
Familiar objects have been re-engineered to create puzzles for you. Clues abound, and as each puzzle is solved, the solution to others present themselves. As well as new puzzles, of course.
Grandpa obviously spent a lot of time making sure that nobody could solve the myriad of puzzles strewn about the house. Nobody but you, his favorite grandchild...

Ratings and Reviews
Fun, if a tad short
I am a fan of the Fire Maple games. Grisly Manor benefits from the forethought that went into making the puzzles fit in with the story and the environments (as opposed to the games which just make you bounce from one slider puzzle to another combination lock puzzle just to retrieve items that make no sense in the storyline). The puzzles are at a medium level of difficulty (just hard enough to make you think, but far from exasperating). This game, like all of Fire Maple’s games, is a welcome relief from the gloomy, creepy settings and atmosphere in most of the games in this genre. The music is pleasant, the visuals are colorful, and the sense of humor is quirky and amusing, which makes for a stress-free puzzle-solving experience. The journal and the map are useful features, as well.
Overall, even though this game is probably the shortest of Fire Maple’s games (makes sense, considering this was their first game) it’s a nice, calm way to spend a few hours, and scratch that puzzling itch.
Like my childhood, just a little different
When I was way younger I downloaded this game and the Lost City on onto my nook (I think they were the only ones available at the time). I played them for hours and hours. At the beginning they were difficult for me. But I just kept playing until I could speed run my way through it.
Life happened and I forgot about these games until last week. Since my nook wasn’t working I spent hours on the internet trying to search these games. Eventually I found them and they were as amazing as ever. Although I did notice a few changes. The Easter eggs weren’t there before (and I’m curious as to what they are for. I only have 2/4 games (ran out of money) so I’m presuming you need to find the eggs in all four games).
Also when I played it as a child, grandfather wasn’t in the basement. It was a chalk board or something with a note. (Im only kinda complaining about that bc grandpa does not have the same look as the game)
Short but excellent
Point and click adventure with beautiful graphics and easy puzzles that are fun to solve, hint system incorporated as well as convenient map, journal records clues for you automatically, inventory bag shows items at your disposal, music adds to the experience and is subdued (not intrusive), ending is rewarding. Fair price for well made and fun albeit short game. Leaves you wanting to play their other games...
