Antique Shop: Book of Souls

The old diary uncovered in what was once Uncle Jack's antique shop is a puzzle unto itself. Why are there so many entries from different people? Why did Uncle Jack write the last entry, and more curious still, how did the exact date of his passing get recorded on the final page? The only clues left behind are Uncle Jack's diary entry itself which seems to be filled with riddles alluding to some greater truth. Join Emily on an adventure across the old world to unlock the puzzles found between the pages.

I'll update my review in the forums when I finish the whole game. Anyhoo, I love the storyline; it's engrossing and above average in the way it's presented. Tiny objects. Date published: The H0G scenes are so intricate and well thought out. I finally uninstalled it after thirty minutes. Very few were easy to see in that the environment was too light or too dark. This is right behind them though. There is nothing wrong with this game. HOG locations correspond to locales meaningful to the people whose names are in the book, which is also your notebook. The light and glass were not the greatest. The diary's power over her seems to be increasing and she must solve the puzzle of the mysterious book or be forever trapped under its spell. So there is possibly some replayability here as well. However, on my larger HDTV, it looked like a completely different game. There is a lot of reading, and the character names are unpronounceacle.

Truthfully, I'd say skip it and pass on the demo. It you did not see exactly where it pointed to you were out of luck until you asked again. I found myself clicking the hint button because of my inability to see the items. There were no voice overs--you had to read all the dialogue. The story line itself could be interesting with some good VO which it has none of, I seriously don't mind reading but if you are going to make something wordy, choose a font that is easier to read or at least place it on a word box that doesn't make it seem like the words are blending together making it hard to read. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by msmile3 from Possibilities! It's atmospheric, with very nice music. Beautiful Graphics in HD! I struggled with this game for about three hours and threw in the towel. As another reviewer has said, this HOG doesn't have any of the dark, evil, eery themes that a lot of HOGs here have, which is another definite plus with me. I did like that they integrated a word search into the mix of levels but still was boring. It's nice to find a basic game once in a while that still presents some challenges and enjoyment. This is right behind them though. Suspense, adventure, and intrigue unfold in Part I of an exciting hidden object trilogy. Tiny objects.

We need to watch the character walk down the hall. One other thing I will note is that the same objects don't always come up in the HOG scenes if you happen to start the game over using a different profile. I did like the music. The story in the book is so intrieguiing that replay is a "must" to get all the characters and places sorted out. Again, on my monitor the graphics are WAY above the norm! My final recommendation on this game is that if you have a big monitor that can do high-def, then play the trial and see what you think. Very few were easy to see in that the environment was too light or too dark. The bad reviews are not deserved. Hope you do not have many games like this one.

If you don't mind looking through the magnifying glass most of the time then you just might enjoy this game. The light and glass were not the greatest. The scenes just kept repeating themselves over and over. I played about half of the game and could not stand to do any more. No voice-overs, all text. So, bottom line, despite all the bad reviews, IMHO this is truly a VERY good game and the storyline is detailed and believable [for a paranormal storyline that is] I really liked this game in spite of the tiny objects and dark background, so I decided to try playing it on two different monitors - a standard inch VGA monitor and a inch HDTV acting as a monitor. The magnifier doesn't work that well, but I liked the challenge of finding hidden objects. Very nice music. We need to watch the character walk down the hall.

You have to enjoy finding small, well hidden objects and reading a boring novella. A definite buy

  1. In the first scene you will acquire a lantern and a magnifying glass that can be used in any scene at any time by left clicking on the one you want to use and then right clicking to use that item and you will use them alot This is a story about Emily, she inherits her Uncle's Antique Shop and discovers a Book Of Souls. Every scene includes a HOG and some also have puzzles. There certainly wasn't enough story line to keep me engaged.

  2. Just one HO scene after another with mediocre graphics doesn't do it for me. Very "Victoriana" in feeling; lovely graphics. I kept wanting a magnifying glass!

  3. The graphics were good but the items were miniscule and a little too dark but when you lighten the scene up from the option menu it is faded and still hard to see. If you don't mind looking through the magnifying glass most of the time then you just might enjoy this game. I would have had to be asking for a refund!

  4. The graphics were no where near clear enough to be able to see small things clear across a room or way down a street. I love them, which is why it's my favorite genre. That part is boring.

  5. These are my thoughts after 28 minutes of game play on the demo. I would have had to be asking for a refund! Tiny objects. There are mini games as well such as word search and flipping tiles over to find a matching pair.

  6. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by codester9 from Ignore the bad reviews! Hope they do. We need to watch the character walk down the hall.

  7. Just one HO scene after another with mediocre graphics doesn't do it for me. This really had none of it. I did have problems with a slow-moving cursor at first, but I went to the options menu and moved the arrow all the way to the left and the cursor moved and responded normally after that. Story is good but the rest is horrid.
