Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades

Dora Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades is a hidden-object adventure game that puts you in the role of an inspector who receives a letter from a colleague. It seems a young police officer who was investigating some disappearances in a countryside manor has gone and disappeared himself, and your colleague is too intimidated to look himself, having put much stock in the superstitious rumours that surround the old place of demons and curses. Hah! What nonsense. Poppycock, even! You're not scared of anyth-OHMYGODWHATSTHAT oh no it's cool, it was just a leaf brushing against my ankle. Heh. Sorry. Where were we? Oh, right, nerves of steel.

Haunted Legends: The Queen of SpadesThe site of all these strange happenings is the property of a woman who was once known locally as the Countess. Legend goes that hundreds of years ago she made a deal with the devil in return for a magic pack of cards, and built herself a massive fortune on them, rather than settle down and watch Judge Judy re-runs and play Keno on the weekends like every other respectable old lady. The Countess died alone, but the local villagers insist her home is still cursed... and once the bodies start piling up and someone starts following you, it gets harder to dismiss it as superstition. Will you solve the mystery, or will you too meet your fate at tiny murderous hands? Your investigation will take you all over the Countess' estate and the surrounding area, gathering items big and small to unravel the truth. Does the truth involve magical playing cards, or is there something even weirder going on?

Analysis: There have been a lot of horror- themed hidden-object adventure titles on the market lately, and while a month or so ago you might have been able to just pass this off as seasonal infatuation, it seems we just love anything the slightest bit dark and weird. Enter the Queen of Spades, which reminds me somewhat of a slightly less gory Elizabeth Bathory... with a gambling problem. While the music is probably going to sound a little familiar to anyone who's played any recent ERS Game Studio titles, the presentation here is still great. The developers have by now perfected the art of depicting shabby, once grand and elegant environments, and exploring the wonderfully creepy areas is a real treat for the eyes.

Haunted Legends: The Queen of SpadesSurprisingly, and perhaps disappointingly, the game is fairly light on puzzles compared to other titles in the genre. Maybe that's a good thing when you consider how massive your inventory tends to get as you explore your surroundings... I didn't know Bags of Holding were standard issue for detectives. For the most part, item usage is pretty intuitive, and you'll usually be able to figure out which of the items you've picked up will best fit any situation. For the more abstract solutions, the sort of thing that you'd typically never figure out on your own, the game will usually tell you what items you need and it's a simple matter of tracking them all down. It's not particularly challenging, but it does make the game extremely accessible, and cuts out a lot of frustrating problem solving.

While the gameplay is fairly standard, Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades is still a beautifully crafted, bizarre tale that will keep you busy for quite some time. It does a great job of keeping you interested and wanting to see how things play out, with a strange story that is anything but ordinary. While you might wish there was more of a challenge to it, if you're a fan of the mad and the macabre, you'll at least want to check of the demo. Just remember... when you stare into the gnome, the gnome also stares into you.

A Collector's Edition is also available. It contains a bonus chapter to play, wallpapers, strategy guide, and more. Remember that Big Fish Game Club Members pay only $13.99 for Collector's Editions (or 2 club credits), and collector's editions count 3 card punches of 6 total needed for a free game.

Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades

General Information and Tips

  • On the Main Menu you can choose your profile, play or exit the game, select your options which include Music and Sound volume, full screen or windowed, and a Custom Cursor or not.

  • Extras will be available once you have completed the basic adventure.

  • The game will give you a choice of playing Regular or Expert Mode.

  • In Regular Mode the Hint and Skip buttons will recharge faster and active zones in the scenes will have sparkles.

  • For Expert Mode, the Hint and Skip buttons recharge slower and the active zones are not indicated.

  • There is a click penalty, so if you click too much, your cursor will attract a group of flying card suit symbols.

  • When you Exit the game, your progress is automatically saved.

  • There are no specific chapters for the game that have been indicated by the developers, so I have divided the walkthrough into sections which I hope will be helpful for you in finding your way.

  • Screenshot

Scene Navigation

  • As you start the game, you will be asked if you wish for Interactive Help. If you choose to have the help, you can later skip the tutorial.

  • If you have the Collector's Edition, you can access the Strategy Guide from a link below the Menu in the scenes.

  • You will collect a deck of the Countess' Enchanted Cards throughout the game and use them in a game of cards at the end of your adventure.

  • The cards will all be marked in bright pink and you can view the number you have collected next to the Menu on the lower portion of each scene.

  • If you click on the card indicator, you can view the cards you have collected.

  • In the middle of the bottom of the scene will be Inventory items called Tools collected for future use or an item list when you are playing a Hidden Object Scene.

  • Sometimes, you will collect items that will not go into your inventory, but will be recorded in the Diary.

  • Be sure to look at anything that has sparkles or a magnifying glass and check Diary when the cover becomes animated.

  • The Diary is located at the far right of the bottom of the scene and can provide you with information for your adventure.

  • There is no Hint button for main scenes, but the Diary will turn into a Hint button for Hidden Object Scenes and a Skip button for Mini Games and Puzzles.

  • If you have chosen to play in Regular Mode, Hidden Object Scenes will be marked with sparkles.

  • Hidden Object Scenes are semi-random and will be marked because you will return to the same location more than once. You may find help with what you are looking for in one of the Hidden Object Scenes for that location.

  • For each Hidden Object Scene you will come away with a key object (marked in turquoise) for your Inventory when you have found all the objects.

  • Hidden Objects that require you to find more than one of the same item will be color coded for that item.

  • Occasionally in a Hidden Object Scene you will be required to perform an action to get an object so those items will be specially shown in the screenshots.

  • If you are not automatically returned to the main scene after a close up, you will need to exit out of it by clicking the "X", clicking somewhere on main scene, or exiting at the bottom of the scene where the arrow appears.

  • Mini Games are mostly puzzles to open door locks and can be skipped once the Skip button is fully charged.

  • The game has an auto-pause feature during which you can choose to continue the game, change your options, access the Help screens, or quit to the Main Menu.

  • Be sure to check out all of the screenshots for additional visual information.

    Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades

    General Information and Tips

    • On the Main Menu you can choose your profile, play or exit the game, select your options which include Music and Sound volume, full screen or windowed, and a Custom Cursor or not.

    • Extras will be available once you have completed the basic adventure.

    • The game will give you a choice of playing Regular or Expert Mode.

    • In Regular Mode the Hint and Skip buttons will recharge faster and active zones in the scenes will have sparkles.

    • For Expert Mode, the Hint and Skip buttons recharge slower and the active zones are not indicated.

    • There is a click penalty, so if you click too much, your cursor will attract a group of flying card suit symbols.

    • When you Exit the game, your progress is automatically saved.

    • There are no specific chapters for the game that have been indicated by the developers, so I have divided the walkthrough into sections which I hope will be helpful for you in finding your way.

    Scene Navigation

    • As you start the game, you will be asked if you wish for Interactive Help. If you choose to have the help, you can later skip the tutorial.

    • Sometimes, you will collect items that will not go into your inventory, but will be recorded in the Diary.

    • Be sure to look at anything that has sparkles or a magnifying glass and check Diary when the cover becomes animated.

    • The Diary is located at the far right of the bottom of the scene and can provide you with information for your adventure.

    • There is no Hint button for main scenes, but the Diary will turn into a Hint button for Hidden Object Scenes and a Skip button for Mini Games and Puzzles.

    • If you have chosen to play in Regular Mode, Hidden Object Scenes will be marked with sparkles.

    • Hidden Object Scenes are semi-random and will be marked because you will return to the same location more than once. You may find help with what you are looking for in one of the Hidden Object Scenes for that location.

    • For each Hidden Object Scene you will come away with a key object (marked in turquoise) for your Inventory when you have found all the objects.

    • Hidden Objects that require you to find more than one of the same item will be color coded for that item.

    • Occasionally in a Hidden Object Scene you will be required to perform an action to get an object so those items will be specially shown in the screenshots.

    • If you are not automatically returned to the main scene after a close up, you will need to exit out of it by clicking the "X", clicking somewhere on main scene, or exiting at the bottom of the scene where the arrow appears.

    • Mini Games are mostly puzzles to open door locks and can be skipped once the Skip button is fully charged.

    • The game has an auto-pause feature during which you can choose to continue the game, change your options, access the Help screens, or quit to the Main Menu.

    • Be sure to check out all of the screenshots for additional visual information.

    Ok, I'm stuck ... I need the torch and the spoiler doesn't mention where to find it, only how to use it. I have the fuel, I see the fire at the summer house, but no torch. Please let me know where you found it.

    Donna, Check Summerhouse Exterior under Chapter 8.

    When you zoom into the window and take the card, you are suppose to put the fuel on the torch before you can collect the "unlit torch".

    It shows all of it in the screenshot.

    I can't pick up the spokes to make the wheel for the carriage. I have the pitch and have applied it. The white gloved hand shows, as it does when you are supposed to pick up something, but the spoke won't be picked up. Am I missing something?

    What version of the game are you playing? Is it the D/L or a mobile version?

    As I recall, there was originally a prob with the lamp knob but it was corrected in the D/L version with an update.

    Hi,

    I've just re-installed the game on my iphone, because I couldn't pick the lamb knob, but still doesn't work. Any ideas?

    Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

    Didde,

    The Lamp Knob does not exist in the iPhone/iPad version of this game.

    Instead, you should receive a Butcher Knife from the Stables Loft hidden object scene. The Butcher Knife is then used to open the jammed door to the left, just inside the mansion.

    The walkthrough provided above the comments is for the PC version, and may have a few discrepancies from the version you are playing.

    I don't know what version of the game you are playing, but here is where you will find the thimbles.

    The first thimble is located at the Loft Entrance, and the second you receive when you play the Library Balcony Hidden Object Scene. The third thimble is already in place for the mini game.

    If this isn't the case, you should contact customer service wherever you bought the game.
