The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational value

Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning. 

Ease of play

As with most hidden object games, puzzle objectives are clear and simple. However, many of the objects are very well hidden, and some of the side games can be surprisingly challenging. Thankfully, unlimited hints are available at the touch of a button, though players will need to wait a minute or so between help requests. 

Violence

No violence, but the game has some mildly scary elements. Players see and interact with ghosts that both help and hinder their progress through the haunted house.     

Sex

Players will happen across the occasional sexually charged hidden object, such as a brass statue of a woman’s leg wearing a high heel and a garter and a golden sculpture of what appears to be a naked servant girl.

Language
Consumerism
Drinking, drugs & smoking

Smoking paraphernalia -- including a lighter and a cigar -- can be found in some scenes.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors HD (Full) is a traditional hidden object game best suited for older kids. It takes place in a haunted house filled with ghosts, and some of the objects players sift through include grown-up items such as wine glasses, cigars, and a golden statue of a naked servant girl. Plus, the level of difficulty is significantly higher than, say, Where's Waldo? game. Parents should also note that this app supports Apple's Game Center network, but participation is optional.

What's it about?

In Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors players creep through a haunted house and slowly learn the story of why it's been abandoned by finding objects -- some of which are key to solving the story. Haunted Manor takes it to the next level where you can open drawers and boxes to search for tools to fix objects, creating a pretty realistic exploration. Light up a room and ghosts appear to reveal more of the story. If you're not easily spooked, this is a great hidden-object game for the daring explorer.

Is it any good?

HAUNTED MANOR: LORD OF MIRRORS is a high-quality hidden object game with a slightly spooky haunted house vibe thanks to its disorderly rooms, ghostly characters, and creepy sound effects. Objects can be tough to find but are generally in logical locations -- like a corkscrew hidden in a picnic basket -- making the game feel tough but fair. Players put many of the items they find to use in bonus puzzles by, say, taping up a severed electrical cord or inserting fuses in a fuse box. It’s not the most original game of its type, but the production values are excellent. It should prove great fun for older kids and adults who like to hunt and peck through beautifully rendered rooms filled with interesting items.
