Graphics

It boasts some of the best graphics in a mobile game. The environment of Waldegrave Manor and its surroundings look visually stunning, with a 1920s aesthetic that adds to the game’s immersion. The objects in the manor, from books and kitchen counters to rugs and rooms, are all exquisitely detailed, and the animations throughout the game run smoothly.

Story

It takes place between November 14th and November 21st, 1908, within the walls of Waldegrave Manor. Players take on the role of a detective hired to uncover the secrets of the manor, which is shrouded in mystery. Players must solve puzzles while exploring the various rooms of Waldegrave, unearthing the manor's secrets and Abigail and Edward Lockwood’s past.

It has a unique feature to it, the Dollhouse. This allows players to zoom in on different rooms of the manor, despite always staying in the Attic. Players unlock these rooms as they progress through the game, solving various puzzles along the way.
