Delaware St. John - The Curse of Midnight Manor is an adventure game with a creepy theme. The game starts with a boring story of the main character, who can hear voices from the dead, and a long unskippable credit section. It offers two chapters to play that you can choose at the beginning. They actually aren't connected and they certainly look as if they were two different stories but not two chapters of the same story. After you choose one, you appear in an abandoned hotel full of ghosts and you must solve the mysteries of the place. You will have the help of your partner, Kelly, who will constantly assist you over the phone with clues and info. The game consists basically in finding clues that help you solve the mystery of the ghosts trapped in the hotel. The controls are simple, you just click where you want to go. The entire game is really easy, since you have the help of your partner and the rest you can figure it out by yourself.
The graphics are good, and the music and sounds are creepy enough to scare you. As for the length, it is extremely short and advanced players can finish it in just a few hours.
All in all, Delaware St. John - The Curse of Midnight Manor leaves a lot to be desired as an adventure game, and you will definitely find better games like this out there.
