Redemption Cemetery: Curse of the Raven is a hybrid game borrowing elements from both hidden object and traditional point-and-click adventure titles, with simple puzzles designed for the casual audience. The player assumes the role of the survivor of a car crash that ends up in a remote cemetery while looking for help. The place is haunted by the spirits of the deceased, trapped in the mortal realm while patiently waiting next to their tombstones for the resolution of a some pending business in their past.
The main objective is to collect and use several objects to solve all puzzles on each location. The items are stored inside the inventory at the bottom, that slides upwards when the cursor is over it, and recedes back when the mouse pointer is moved away. The objects must be dragged and dropped from the inventory slots to a logical portion of the scenery to perform an action or complete a task.
Some scenes are pure hidden object challenges, where the goal is to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen. The hint button is a gargoyle at the bottom-right corner that highlights the position of one of the required objects when activated, but takes some time to recharge after use. Mini-games appear on a separate screen, where a self-contained puzzle has to be solved by direct manipulation of pieces or mechanisms of some sort. [source:mobygames]
