There's something worthwhile here, even if it's the unusual power fantasy of being able to haunt an aristocratic family from the safety of the rafters.

Ultimately, Wayward Manor was a fun game with a great story and, most importantly, something I wouldn't have minded dropping $10 on Steam for. The game is short, but has some solid replay value and is good for a quick break. The game has Gaiman's signature storytelling style and the puzzles are open-ended enough for multiple run-throughs.

Wayward Manor is a puzzle game created in collaboration between The Odd Gentleman and Neil Gaiman. That alone is enough to catch some interest, but whatever charm the game has quickly wears thin.

The great news is that Neil Gaiman has arrived to the gaming industry and, if we are lucky, he will give us new and more ambitious projects in the future.

For a game with such a well established author behind it, Wayward Manor is a little disappointing. However it is quite endearing. Perhaps a game to be played with your children, rather than viewing it as a fully fledged puzzle game.

You'll enjoy turning this game off more than you enjoy any aspect of its gameplay

Wayward Manor, despite offering some cheap thrills, is irrefutably unpolished and lacks the variation, complexity and challenge that could have made this game a genuine treat.

A promising concept but dismal execution on just about every level.

A host of glitches keep Wayward Manor feeling anything but welcoming.

The only thing being scared away by the Wayward Manor's ghost is this reviewer's patience.
