Realms Of The Haunting Gremlin / Interplay 1996

Realms of the Haunting is a relatively unknown game due to Interplay apparently not realising they had such a potential hit on their hands and expended minimal effort in marketing ROTH. You take on the role of Adam Randall, a young American chap whose father was the pastor of a small Cornish village. Your father is recently deceased, and the opening scene finds you in the dark of night in the back of a taxi on your way to a large old house that was somehow connected with your father's mysterious death. As you enter the house the front door shuts behind you, is sealed by a magical ward, and thus the game begins. At first, most of the house is sealed off by doors that are magically warded, but as the game progresses you eventually find a way to get past each door. ROTH utilises full-motion video sequences filmed with professional actors to advance the very creepy story. Early on in the game your character meets a fetching English lass named Rebecca with whom you can discuss many aspects of the interesting reading material and people you will encounter. Unfortunately, she won't help you at all when it comes to a fight. ROTH has quite a lot of combat throughout, interspersed with some clever puzzles. Fortunately you can choose between: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Very hard for the combat difficulty. At first you will find only mundane weapons like a pistol or sword, but later on you come across some magical weapons that are much more powerful yet tricky to use as they take time to recharge. You can pause the action at any time by popping up your inventory, from which you can access health potions, change weapons, etc. Solving puzzles also have an easy or hard setting. This game is highly recommended!
