Pathstow is the town where your friend Max Charlton lives. Max Charlton asked you to help him with something… supernatural in his new house in Pathstow. Find out Pathstow’s secret! The game features mostly meditative gameplay: The player looks around, investigates the environment, looks for clues, and solves puzzles.
Review: This dark and spooky puzzle adventure game sees you working your way through five episodes that last for about 20 mins each, so about an hour and a half of total gameplay depending on how good you are at solving puzzles. I didn’t like the poor narration, but overall the game looks OK and works just fine. I also liked that it was a challenge at some points which does make the game feel longer than it is, but I do feel this game is all down to value for money. I’m going to suggest you wait for a sale as £7.19 is a little too much in my opinion. But even for half of that price you will enjoy this game and feel you are getting your money’s worth from it.
