Can't get enough!

Eagerly waiting for the sequel! Probably my favorite game. But now a little crashy on the iOS8 & iphone 6. Please update so I can enjoy it all over again!

*****************************************
I'd give it 10 stars if I could! This is not just a game, it is a mysterious adventure. Highly addictive! 4 games come with the app but my favorite is The Secret of Bryce Manor.

It opens the story with hints on how to move. The spider can run, walk, jump, tackle, leap, turn around, and eat. This game bumps up the challenge with each level and holds your interest. It has a very responsive interface. You go up on levels as you work thru the mansion...inside and outside.

There are clues to be found. There are achievements to build, and there is a secret. I have been thru the game once and not yet learned the secret. I can see that there are different ways to play to get different results.

The more you play, the better you get. There are interesting ways to catch the different bugs. It's got great sound affects and is so realistic. The mood is all there like a great movie/novel mystery.

It's fun fun fun!!!

The graphics and soundtrack are amazing!!!

It's meant for one player but I've played it with one if my kids by trading off the different levels. We have a blast watching and encouraging each other.

Thank you for this masterpiece!!!

The game that started it all is still fun

This was the first game I played on any iOs device back in 2009, and when I heard that it was finally receiving a sequel, I decided I should replay it. Amazingly, considering all the innovation in mobile gaming in the last six years, it is still fun to play. If you are obsessive like I am, it will take you maybe three hours to complete the adventure mode campaign, and there are several more hours worth of content in the other game modes. I like to break down my reviews into story, visuals, audio and gameplay, so here goes:

Story: This game is rather story light, expecting the player to create their own version of what happened at the manor based on vague clues and imagination, but it works really nicely. I felt motivated to track down every secret and open every hidden room. For what it is, it does this very well.

Visuals: The hand drawn aesthetic is lovely, even by today's standards, with a lot of care put into each of the backgrounds. The bugs and spiderwebs don't stand up to time quite as well, but they are not bad enough to be emersion breaking. It is important to note, however, that the visuals don't quite stand up to the most recent iPhone screens, and it looks really fuzzy if you try and blow it up on an iPad. They do have an iPad version however.

Audio: This was one of the first games that put obvious effort into their audio, and I remember being very impressed within it first came out. That said, by today's standards, it is lacking. The music is repetitive and has little depth.

Gameplay: The gameplay is perhaps the weak point of this game. When it came out, it was amazing, but in 2015, it is lacking. There are only a few types of "enemy" bugs, and the gameplay breaks down to make webs, chase bugs, eat stuff. That said, because of the campaign's shortness, it never has a chance to really get boring.

Overall, this game is still worth playing, and it is especially impressive considering its age.

My Favorite Game

I played this game when I was about 7, and enjoyed it greatly, not even understanding the value of the lore of this game. I replayed it, nearly 8 years later, and I still love it, but now have a better understanding of the “secrets” of the game and the story being told through all the little details. The art style in this game is by far one of my favorites, which makes me sad for the sequel, where the art style is different and more refined. I recommend this game to anyone who wants to experience a sense of exploration with a beautiful art style and settings.
