The game world is huge and you will encounter many levels (how big can a mansion be?).

Haha, nice observation ;)

Have you ever wanted to experience how it could be to the protagonist in an Edgar Allan Poe, or even, H. P. Lovecraft novelization? Well, look no further, because in this game you can! This game is an RPG game with a lot of horror elements in it.

This was one of my absolute favorite game when I was younger, (teen years). I played it, I think, the whole summer with my big brother when he visited me (I lived with my parents back then). We played it with PC-speaker so it wasn't any fancy sound, but still the game gave us both the creeps and the atmosphere in this game was - and is - still amazingly good. I still get goosebumps when I think about some rooms in the game, and I can always remember how it was staying up late and play this game.

I still have it in my original big box. Perhaps I should preserve it as my first ever preservation game - if the disks are working, that is...

A game that I love dearly, even though it isn't without it's flaws, but I for once, can live with the windows rearranging, the inventory etc.

Oh, I have finished it, once!

That would probably be Wonderland. The earlier games made by Magnetic Scrolls (The Pawn and The Guild of Thieves are on TGOD) use a fixed frame layout.

For what I recall reading somewhere, The Legacy engine was made from one made for IFs by Magnetic Scrolls. But I barely played their games so I don't know which. So this windows thing may well end being a direct copy from Deja-Vu, not even that they had the same idea.

Deja Vu did that in the mid-80s ;)

I think it's a nice feature. It's long ago when I played the game the last time. But I can remember this feature very well. So I must have used it. ;)

By the way. The lifting skill is used for moving objects. If your skill is high enough, you can allmost move anything.

Nice review for a good game. The only thing I am missing is the fact, that you can customize the whole interface. Every window can be rearanged and rezized to fit the players needs. That was revolutionary when the game was released. I don't know many other games where you can do this.

A haunted mansion that looks more like a maze, lots of monsters and both of your fists. What else could be needed for what basically is a dungeon crawler on a lovecraftian setting?
