Description of Uninvited

This is a little better than Shadowgate but not by much-- you still die a lot, and most puzzles are illogical. It is essentially Shadowgate with a new setting and better plot: after regaining consciousness from a car crash, you must enter the haunted house to find your missing sister. As in other ICOM games, useless items abound (although there is a place to stash them), so be prepared for extensive item management.

What made this slightly-above-average game a lot worse is a big maze which is extremely confusing and just might make you realize that finishing the game may not be worth it.

Hands-down the "scariest" CGA game (if you could say there is such a thing). Possibly the oldest game that can suspend an immersive horror atmosphere. Good art and pacing spreads out tension between well-timed (and not overused) jumpscares, which remain potent with help of sparse but effective sound effects.

I do recommend a walkthrough, or at least a list of useful items - most of the difficulty of this game comes from the added confusion of figuring out how to use items when most of the items in the game are unused junk. It can impact the flow of the game and overshadow the good, real puzzles in the game.

Laugh all you want at the idea of a CGA horror game, but in the age when your movies were mostly cheap VHS tapes copied off TV and played on a tiny CRT, and when most CGA DOS games didn't feature real samples instead of beep/adlib, this product was considered quite scary in its day. And if you're acclimated enough to old adventure games of this era, you might find yourself looking over your shoulder or turning on a lamp in the room.

Way back in the late 80s I first played this game on my Atari ST and it was a lot of fun despite many of the puzzles not making much sense.

Also, I don't recall a large maze so maybe it was taken out of the conversion?

I love the part where the ghost ejaculates on you if you try to comb his ratty hair.

I LOVED this game, and managed to beat it, back in the day, on a very early Mac. I lived near ICOM in Illinois, and it broke my heart when they left town, whatever made them leave/disband. The Cubs t-shirt on the little bro brought a big smile.

Another classic from ICOM, together with Deja Vu and Shadowgate !
