While the story in STRAY SOULS: DOLLHOUSE STORY might not be the strongest in the app store, it does a masterful job of creating a spooky atmosphere that makes the story come alive. It's well-paced and scales well to both experienced puzzle/adventure gamers and newcomers to the genre. The heroine is a bit disappointing, though, in that she sometimes comes across as someone who is entirely dependent on her husband. (For instance, she notes at one point that she had never driven before her husband taught her how.)

All in all, though, the game is a clever blend of puzzle games with a story that twists nicely. It's certainly too intense for young players, but tweens and adults will have lots of fun with it.
