A short but entertaining diversion for fans of the Alone in the Dark series.

The Good

Jack in the Dark is a free mini-adventure so the price is a big plus. The haunted toy store it is set in is very nice with toys springing to life as soon as your back is turned (at first). The puzzles are entertaining and tricky and it's nice to see grace and jack from AitD 2 in slightly different roles.

The Bad

This is, as I said a mini-adventure so it's short. Really short, but for free what did you expect? The music is pretty crappy and some of the puzzles affect other things with no co-herrent link.

The Bottom Line

A fun collection of puzzles featuring AitD2 characters which is worth getting for fans of the Alone series plus it's free so if you can find it, the price is most definately right.
