If they're phasing out, what will I do with my 20,000 points? Lol

In case anyone is tempted, I just picked up Gothic Masquerade HD, which is now on sale for 99 cents. Don't bother. I realize it's not fair to expect a relative unknown to compete with the likes of G5 and Big Fish, but this game is just atrocious. There is no story or point to the game. It is just a series of random rooms. The graphics are mediocre at best, and most of them are pretty crummy. There's not even a consistency to the images - they look like they were just randomly grabbed from a series of clip art libraries because they adhere to some generally unrevealed theme. You can turn off sound effects and music and you'll want to. Actually, the sound effects probably don't matter, because I don't think I ever heard any anyway. The music is awful, and mostly sounds like it's being played on some turn of the century (20th, not 21st) musical device. To shake things up a bit there are spot the difference screens (yes, I tortured myself through 3 rounds), but those are even more annoying that the hidden object screens. More than wanting my money back, I want the few minutes of my time this game robbed from me.

I know Maestro was mentioned earlier, but I couldn't remember if a link was provided or not. Anyone tried it yet? Also, Grandmother's Room got me to thinking that I don't recall seeing an IDAC game in the new releases for a while. Have I just been missing them or is IDAC not making escape games any more?

Go ahead and dl GrandMother's Room its worth every penny. If you need help with the game can visit GrandMother's Room Walkthrough.

Agree, though the puzzles are illogical and few and far between. It seems as though a few "Lost City" inspired images have been thrown together with a puzzle here and there. It all seems very rushed. I had to use a walkthrough to get through it due to it's randomness, lack of clues or any logical thread storyline. It has potential though. I think?

Definately potential there. The developer just needs a bit more thought and time to take it up to the level of Lost City

BFG have released The Treasures of Mystery Island on both ipad and iphone.

I spoke too soon. It is another re-release of an Alawar game. They might have upgraded the graphics, though.
