Pour Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes The Pit and the Pendulum

So that was rather annoying itself. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by scoobydoo from The 13th Pods game for Friday the 13th!!!! It begins, as many of the Dark Tales. For the price, I don't think it's worth it. After playing the demo, I can only say that this is Peos a buy for me. Part of the show? I can not tell Hotel how much I wish I could have recommended the game. In short, this game was quite disappointing on a lot Zuzu & Pirates levels. But the Hidden Object scenes were just too simplistic, and the Achievements were rather silly. Can you team up with Dupin once again and solve this cold-blooded case? You are going to join him as he strives Pendu,um protect an old friend, Zula, one of the performers. A complete fabrication with little or no relation to the claimed poem. Good try but does not meet the standards of prior Edgar Allen Poe's.

Please try the Demo. For example, at one point, we are shot at in a room with a well; the next second, we find ourselves in a dungeon. Still, we wish to see more creativity in the hidden object scenes and the puzzles, as they remain fairly standard and easy. You catch up in time to have Jacob hurtle a poison gas canister at you and you see him drag off Dupin as you pass out. She has received threats upon her life and has foreseen her death. A good friend of Dupin, Zula, has been threatened lately. Pursuit is not easy, you have to overcome a lot of obstacles. Left behind are you, with the task of helping Dupin. Think of something else please! Sure, if you would like to play a game without much attention to the story or achievements, you might enjoy this game. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by scoobydoo from The 13th series game for Friday the 13th!!!! Obviously it was her partner, who hit her, he escapes the room instantly. After playing the demo, I can only say that this is not a buy for me. As a medium and illusionist, she has foreseen her own death even, but Dupin and you shall protect her. Did we fall through the well?

I will bet that most gamers haven't even read it. Pursuit is not easy, you have to overcome a lot of obstacles. Dragon Keeper 2 should note that the graphics were pretty good, as usual; as was the familiar Dark Tales theme music. Don't take my word for the necessity - believe the reviewer who lamented not checking it out before his disappointing purchase of this game. But the Hidden Object scenes were just too simplistic, and the Achievements were rather silly.


Date published: She has appealed to Dupin for help. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Zurreen from Could have been a lot better This game is said to be based on a poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Meeting point is the Pendulum House. The mini-games were a little too easy as far as the Hard Mode goes, but I still enjoyed more than I disliked. I will bet that most gamers haven't even read it. We did not mind the music, they did not do much to elevate the game, but also did not distract us. While the basis of the gameplay is nothing worth writing home about, there is a few elements that spark our interest. But what a cheap trick to get folks to buy the Collector's Edition to see what is the real, whole story! Don't take my word for the necessity - believe the reviewer who lamented not checking it out before his disappointing purchase of this game. But then she is hit by a dart and falls to the floor, dead. At a crowded party, the fire extinguisher is locked to the wall with two amulets that must be found before you can take it. Either way, we should have been injured, yet we are left without a single scratch!

Don't take my word for the necessity - believe the reviewer who lamented not checking it out before his disappointing purchase of this game. By the time you've run back and forth retrieving the other masks from safe, cabinet, and trunk, using a seeming unending supply of amulets, there seems little point in rushing after Dupin and Jacob. I love that Amax has included Morphing Objects and collectible Illusion Cards in this CE version, but the objects morphed too quickly and are easily spotted. The Mini-Games I will admit are pretty easy to solve, even on the Hard difficulty setting, but I don't really care how hard or easy puzzles are, as long as they are fun, and I enjoyed several of them. Detective Dupin will be a special guest star participant, so this will be a party to die for! It begins, as many of the Dark Tales. I do recommend it, but Not the collectors edition. So you trek back and forth again. The HOP's lacked creativity, but I'm getting used to the fact that HOP's have probably run their course of options, which makes me doubt anything new could possibly be created at this point. And, yes, there were at least a couple of very good puzzles in the game. A complete fabrication with little or no relation to the claimed poem. They obviously have a creative writing team, so why not take a leap of faith and allow them to write a brand new series? But the Hidden Object scenes were just too simplistic, and the Achievements were rather silly. After you and Dupin enter a room where a prime suspect was locked in with the doorman, Matt, the "bad guy," Jacob, Zula's partner, jumps through a window into the garden.

Dupin had a bad feeling about this performance and begged Zula to reconsider, but "the show must go on" until it doesn't, and it did! Otherwise, it is just another addition to a growing line of disappointments in the Dark Tales series. I can't believe so many people are marking this game down because it is not the same storyline as Poe's version. Part of the show? I would not have paid "collectors" price for this one, if I had done the preview first. So what exactly did happen anyway?! My final complaint is that although I really liked the storyline, it doesn't seem to follow Poe's vision, so I'll ask again, Why does Amax insist on hanging onto ERS's apron strings? I actually checked out that poem, and the game is nothing like the poem at all. In fact, it seems to be made out of whole cloth! But what a cheap trick to get folks to buy the Collector's Edition to see what is the real, whole story! A good friend of Dupin, Zula, has been threatened lately. Detective Dupin will be a special guest star participant, so this will be a party to die for! So you trek back and forth again.

  1. They obviously have a creative writing team, so why not take a leap of faith and allow them to write a brand new series? While the basis of the gameplay is nothing worth writing home about, there is a few elements that spark our interest. The games earn achievements and build upon each other!! You regain consciousness to find that the secret passage they went through can be opened when you find four statuettes. One of the reasons is that we think that AMAX Interactive put more thoughts into crafting the gameplay of this sequel more than they did with the past few installments.

  2. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Zurreen from Could have been a lot better This game is said to be based on a poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Short game! For example, at one point, we are shot at in a room with a well; the next second, we find ourselves in a dungeon.

  3. The storyline in the game is interesting enough to propel the game forward, but lacks the level of originality that is needed to make the game more than just an ordinary murder mystery. And there is NO bonus play at all. I miss the early DT games and wish the Devs would just start a new series and stop abusing E.

  4. After you and Dupin enter a room where a prime suspect was locked in with the doorman, Matt, the "bad guy," Jacob, Zula's partner, jumps through a window into the garden. But then she is hit by a dart and falls to the floor, dead. However, the event comes to a standstill when someone murdered Zula during her performance!
