Default Hey... Wait a minute!

Sleepless hollow should be in the Puzzle games section, as it is quite puzzlicious.

Puzzling or not, it's not a "puzzle game" by any definition I have ever heard! Does anyone else think it is?

It's half puzzle, half action, imo.

EDIT: Note that I've only played the demo.

A puzzle game should be mostly puzzle with some form of interaction.
(Like Stockboy, it's puzzle but there is also a little bit of action)


The game has puzzles in it, but it isn't based on being a puzzle game, more of an action adventure thing.


Meh... That isn't how I wanted to explain it, but my brain is not working at full speed at this time.

Puzzle games are almost entirely focused on puzzles. Over half of Sleepless Hollow was non-puzzle!

In my opinion It's mostly action, with a lot of puzzles along the way

I agree. It's both combined.

Maybe it's own category of 'puzzling'?

I disagree with this

The people that come here may know what type of a game they want.
So they go into the Puzzle section, because they want a puzzle game.

I would be un-happy if I bought a game because I thought it was a puzzle game but then it turned out to be an action/adventure game.



I like SH, but I don't think it deserves the title of 'Puzzle Game'
