Spooky Mall

Fun Factor:★☆☆☆☆ 

Alawar Games and Melesta love taking their basic time management games and rolling them through hundreds of variations on a theme, and Spooky Mall is following this formula. We have a fresh college grad, ready to work, not getting much success in finding work, much like many college grads in real life, then she gets a call. A mysterious person wants her to manage a mall, and her shifts start at midnight. So, this is not an ordinary mall.

After seeing the set up of the mall, it somewhat reminded me of old The French Market that used to be in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, with its varying food outlets under one big roof. We start in the regular grocery, and then it becomes a typical supermarket run, fill the stock, clean up after rude customers, check out people… wet, lather, rinse, repeat, much like Supermarket Management. The thing is, in Spooky Mall, the reason the stores are only open at night is because the customers are ghosts, wraiths, spirits, and other kinds of benign undead. About the creepiest thing I saw was a clown that looked like an undead Ronald McDonald (*shudder*)! As if live clowns aren’t creepy enough!

FunFactor: ★★★★★ 

Our redheaded Treasure Seekers are back in a new place and time. Tommy has gone off on his own to an old castle in Romania to investigate some magical paintings, and has sent word for Nelly to join him. Supposedly he has found the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone, a magical artifact that can turn lead to gold, among many other things. Nelly is not comfortable with the idea of her younger brother investigating such a mysterious case on his own. Romania has a dark past, and when dealing with magic in such a place, the risks are huge. Nelly goes to Totenkraft Castle to meet up with Tommy, but he is nowhere to be found. She finds her passage blocked by some paintings, and in each painting are people who are in need of her help. From ghosts to genies and more, Nelly’s only wish is to find her brother safe and sound, and the people she assists give her clues to help her along her way.
