Barrow Hill: Curse Of The Ancient Circle is a gripping horror thriller, set in the Cornish landscape of England and told from a first-person perspective. The Cornwall based developers have succeeded in transforming the local dark legends into a very immersive gaming experience. From eerie woodlands to desolate farm buildings, the game world of Barrow Hill is very much alive, and keeps the players looking over their shoulder.

Your character arrives stranded on the lonely road during the Autumn Equinox and you have just one night to unravel a sinister plot. Explore the pathways across the country side, seek clues in almost forgotten shrines and experience the ancient forces which exist in the standing stone monument known as Barrow Hill. Following in the footsteps of the well-known archaeologist Conrad Morse, you will discover that the barrow is more than just a mound of earth and a collection of forgotten standing stones. However, not all archaeology is constructive, for some things should be left buried and undisturbed. But perhaps it is too late for that...
  • Archaeology meets adventure, as danger lurks in the ancient forests around you
  • Utilise gadgets to locate clues and communicate with characters
  • A full range of puzzles and conundrums, integrated seamlessly with the game-world
  • Explore an ancient stone monument from the time of the Celtic people and practice ancient rituals and ceremonies, almost forgotten to modern man
  • In a leafy corner of ancient Cornwall you will find a deeper meaning to the variety of England's native wildlife
  • A full in-game soundtrack of eerie music, and chilling sound effects

This game was recommended to me and when i finally had the time to give it a go.... i could not stop playing! It is a fantastic storyline in which you really get involved. The point and click really works for this game and visually it is just stunning!!! There are a good variety of puzzles that get you thinking, whilst at other times you will be on the edge of your seat. The voice overs are entertaining and the music really works with the atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed this game!

 Super little adventure game with great puzzles.

Set in a dark, spooky, ancient stone circle, Barrow Hill takes gamers into the realm of the unknown, and paranormal, to explore Celtic myths and legends.

Locations to explore include: a deserted, spooky, rural Service Station. A mile or so of dark, creepy woodlands. Dark country lanes, and a misty swamp area, where something nasty hides in the dark.

Solving some truly nifty puzzles, and brain teasers, you will uncover all sorts of creepy goings-on, while being stalked through the woods by an unseen force.

Barrow Hill is a great little bargain, and can be played alone (if brave) or with friends. The puzzles are best worked out with company, with many enigmas having more than one solution. If the game has any drawbacks, it could do with being a little longer...but, at this price, who's complaining!

Fans of puzzles, Celtic myths and British folklore will love this game.
