Fright recommendations?

Postby draclvr » Sun Jul 13, 2014 5:46 pm

Ghostlady is highly recommending the game Fright on her Casual Gaming Facebook page, which is high praise coming from her! Has anyone else played this one?

No, I downloaded it, but it's not compatible with my OS.

I need Ghostlady's help, or anyone else who has played this game please.

I was really enjoying this game till I got stuck - been stuck since yesterday - It must be something I am doing wrong. The Strategy Guide says "Return to second floor of the house and then walk left. Place the jack under the bookcase and turn the crank".

When I go up the stair to the second floor, there is no option to turn left. I can place the cursor on Mrs Henderson's door on the left and the game says "Now I just need some way of getting this letter to Mrs. Henderson." So I am very confused because I thought I had made the letter into a paper plane and thrown it at Mrs Henderson's window?? Meanwhile I can't progress further into the game.

I think Fright is a first attempt from the makers Lesta. I don't see anything else made from this company, but what do I know? :) This game is not polished, but it sure will hold your interest. What happened at the spooky hotel? What happened to the little girl? I managed to get stuck several times, which I like more than hand holding games. It's almost like an Adventure game, and the hidden object scenes have puzzles in them. I really liked it. :)

Rozanne, did you talk to Mrs. Henderson out in the corn field by the water tank? I think the plane goes through her window after that. Then you can turn left into her room.

Yes, I am pretty sure that I talked to Mrs. Henderson in the cornfield Stella. Marian over at GB said that she had the self same problem when she played the game. Veery frustrating. Ghostlady asked me what the hint button told me to do, but I dont have a hint button, just a Strategy Guide.

I did some research on Lesta, because like you Stella, the name did not ring a bell. But it seems they have been a gaming company for a very long time, and I believe this is their 5th casual game. I have contacted them directly, and also posted on the BFG Forum............

There is a hint button RB - in the righthand corner just above the Guide button. Used it a lot rather than the guide myself. It will take you where you need to go without using up hints.
I loved the game btw. Really good!!

Nope, when I hover my cursor above the word "Guide", I just get a navigational arrow which takes me downstairs again.

I think I better contact BFG CS also about this.

Rb I just went back to the game. I see that the second and third difficulty options have no hint button and, if you used the custom option, one can select no hint button. This is possibly the reason why you cannot see the hint button. Before you contact anyone about this, try with a new game and see what happens. Good luck! :)

Can you change the difficulty in mid-game to access the Hint button?

That isn't an option here I'm sure. But had finished the game already so not quite sure. I started a new game with a new player to check out Rosie's problem but didn't check out that option. Perhaps she can check that out?

Yes I changed the difficulty and yes, the Hint System appeared and Stella was right about summoning Mrs Henderson. But I can assure you that I had already done that once. This is the second time this game has repeated a sequence. There were a lot of complaints in the beginning about glitches in this game, but thanks to you all, I can now move on - thanks a lot folks.
