Title Uninvited Game Type Adventure Players 1 Publisher ICOM Compatibility All? HD Installable Yes Submission Alkis Polyrakis Profiled Reviewer Review Uninvited is very good point & click adventure game in the horror genre. The atmosphere is compelling, the puzzles are excellent (although inexperienced players may easily get confused) and the story is good enough to keep you interested. Story You start the game right after a car crash, realizing that your brother is missing. You leave the car (which explodes behind you) and you find yourself in front of a mansion. You decide to enter it and search for your brother, unaware of the bad spirits that are haunting it. Once you enter the mansion, the door closes behind you, trapping you inside. Interface The usual ICOM interface, used in Deja Vu 1 (one of the first point & click adventures ever), Deja Vu 2 and Shadowgate. You can see six windows on your screen. The graphics window, where the action takes place, the message window, where you can read the descriptions of the narrator, the inventory, the interface window, which includes the eight available commands that you may use: Examine, open, close, speak, operate, go, hit, consume, a window that shows you the available exits, and finally a window that represents yourself. The interface is controlled by the mouse, and it's very easy to learn. For instance, when you want to open a box, you click on "open" in the commands window and then on the box in the graphics window. Graphics & sound The graphics are very well drawn and detailed. Even though the graphics window is rather small, you will have no trouble recognizing the objects for what they are. There are only a few sound effects in the game, windows that break, laughter, dogs barking... Don't expect much there. Puzzles That's what makes an adventure game interesting. The puzzles are inventory oriented. Uninvited is full of dead ends, so you have to be very careful with some objects that can easily be destroyed. In addition, you only have a number of moves in which you should finish the game. Although this number is pretty big, if you exceed it you will be taken over by the spirit of the game and you will die. There are no other characters other than you and your brother in the game. Well, at least not live ones... You will also learn some magic spells that you'll be able to use. Summary If you're a hardcore adventure player, do not miss this game. It's really fun to play, even these days.
