Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes The Pit and the Pendulum

Amax Interactive brings you the newest chilling installment of the much beloved Dark Tales series! Your good friend Dupin has invited you to Pendulum House for an event filled with magic and illusions. But the show is interrupted when a murderer strikes! You quickly find a suspect, but nothing is quite as it seems in this mysterious manor. With Dupin in danger, do you have what it takes to find the culprit before it’s too late? Find out in this hypnotizing hidden-object puzzle adventure!

The mini-games were a little too easy as far as the Hard Mode goes, but I still enjoyed more than I disliked. For example, at one point, we are shot at in a room with a well; the next second, we find ourselves in a dungeon. Dupin goes after him just before a security gate clangs down. 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. I can't recommend what I will not be purchasing. When you finally are inside the house, Zula enters the room, vanishes in blue smoke the next moment and reapears a second later — magic. For the price, I don't think it's worth it. I miss the early DT games and wish the Devs would just start a new series and stop abusing E. At a crowded party, the fire extinguisher is locked to the wall with two amulets that must be found before you can take it. 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. It gives the game an unusual direction. 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?

It's a good thing you made it to the show on time, unfortunately, this show will be the Grand Final, but is it just an elaborate Grand Illusion?

It begins, as many of the Dark Tales. It seems to me that they are trying so hard to remaster the oldies by completely revamping the plots, so why not go all the way? 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. Pursuit is not easy, you have to overcome a lot of obstacles. The character and plot building add to the previous games to make this game challenging. The games earn achievements and build upon each other!! Fortunately they are still fighting in the garden. This is the first Dark Tales game I have enjoyed in quite a long time, in fact, I almost gave The Pit and the Pendulum 5 stars, but it does have a few features that could've been better.

For example, at one point, we are shot at in a room with a well; the next second, we find ourselves in a dungeon.

I actually checked out that poem, and the game is nothing like the poem at all. And there is NO bonus play at all.

Short game! But what a cheap trick to get folks to buy the Collector's Edgr to see what is the real, whole story! In fact, it seems to Beach Party Craze made out of whole cloth! Good try but does not meet the standards of prior Edgar Allen Poe's. He is soon overpowered by the illusionist and taken down into a cellar of an old building near Pendulum House.

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.

They obviously have a creative writing team, so why not take a leap of faith and allow them to write a brand new series?
