The first one is a puzzlegame through and through. Most of the game you search rooms. Everytime you enter ar room you get a list of items like "Hammer, Scissors, Phone, Purse". Then you have to find each of the items listed in an image overfilled with stuff and click on them. Sometimes to enter rooms you have to unlock a puzzle. Once in awhile you unlock diary pages that you have to puzzle together.



All in all, the first game was decent. It was fun to play together with my cohabit, but it was also a bit annoying, especially puzzling the diary pages got boring soon enough. Towards the end you also felt like you were doing the same things over and over again.


The second game keeps the "find stuff" gameplay, but is also an adventuregame that makes far more sense. Rooms are connected and you unlock puzzles to get through to the next area, with an ongoing story. Unlike the first game, whenever you searched through a room you get to keep one of the found items that becomes an object that can be used elsewhere, just like an adventuregame. I found the 2nd game to be much greater than the first one.
