This is one of the most frustrating games I have ever come across. It starts off like many other hidden object mystery games. A visit to an old family home, it suddenly looks rundown and nothing like they remember. This time we are seeing through the eyes of Mina Lockheart as she goes back to her grandmother’s home on the Pozoj Creek to find an evil spirit called the Strix. While some background graphics were very pleasing, the main characters looked very cold and plastic, as is common in some unpolished computer-generated games. At the beginning, we are to search for a little green gnome-like creature called Malik that we see in a picture with Grandma. It seems this little guy is going the be the one who gets us on the right track to defeating this thing called Strix. As for Strix, I never could find it, because I spent the longest time looking for a stupid knife that was stuck behind a painting just so I could jimmy a damn lock to get a chest open. The little “hints” are useless, and they never really take you to where you should be.
