Review for The Mansion II
04 Mar 2022
I notice that no-one has reviewed this game for a few years, but I like to play these games when I'm on holiday, so I bumped into this one.

It was an excellent, classic, text adventure. Do play the first "Mansion" first to get into the story, but I think Mansion 2 is better and you can play it without playing the first one.

Puzzles were all logical (SPOILER although why did you have to drop the candle first before lighting it!), you have to keep the chemical mixtures in mind, right until the end and the double house area was clever. I like that there are various endings that are possible. I managed to get the incriminating evidence, and I didn't attempt to say no to the Uncle!

Great entertainment! Thanks very much.

Top notch text adventure with the addition of some graphics and sounds which help enormously with the atmosphere.

Tricky but logical puzzles, good writing and an intriguing ending.

All in all, extremely enjoyable. I can't wait for the next instalment!

Peter strikes again! Another excellent text adventure.

Some tricky problems with great clues. I love the way new areas open up by solving problems. I had to go the comments a couple of times and I kicked myself for not spotting the clues.

I really enjoyed it!

Another great text adventure from Peter! I really enjoyed it. The mapping was a bit tougher than normal but logical. Some tricky puzzles and you've really got to investigate every detail to get the answers. But, that's what we like.

Thanks again Peter!

A classic text adventure! I really enjoyed it. Good, logical puzzles and enough hints in the comments to help get over the more tricky bits without revealing too much. Atmospheric descriptions that got the brain juices flowing.

Usual advice applies (I need to follow my own advice here!), read all the room descriptions carefully and examine everything even if it's not in the object list. Save regularly!
