I hope it will be the beginning of the new game series about Ghost Towns, because this game is good. But let's not get ahead of ourselves and start the review of the Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar with the gameplay video (taken on YouTube).
Not bad, very impressive graphics and nice sounding. But let's discover what pluses and flaws are hidden inside this Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar game, and does it worth paying $ 13.99 - Big Fish Games traditionally released Collector's Edition only.

So Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar game started when young careless girl with a dark long hair came into the strange town of Ulthar. Her future mate Menes lived there for a whole life and must have meet her. But from the first steps something gone terribly wrong. Town looks abandoned, many buildings are half-ruined, it's cold and raining. There is no human being who is meeting you, neither Menes, nor someone he could sent if couldn't came himself, for example, his sister.
Raining streets of Ulthar
You can hear the dreary meowing cats, and soon you will find one little black cat. You will take it to warm and caress, but without special attention - you are crossing the Ulthar, trying to find any information about the town (and maybe to know something about your future beloved one Menes). And when you will came into the center of Ulthar you will find out the terrible truth: for some unknown horrible crimes committed by Menes he is sentenced to death! His sister will send you a secret message with desperate call of help during some other poor guy execution  - he was hanged for some small crime.
The citizens of Ulthar want blood
And if you think that make the things right in Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar will be easy - think again. Town-folk are really angry and they neither let you to see Menes nor telling you what crime he committed. How can you prove Menes's innocence if you even can't tell for what he will be punished? His sister is hiding underground, she is ragged and eating junk. Her only friend is another black cat. Cats likely plays a great role in social life of Ulthar.
Exploring the Ulthar Ghost Town
As far as you exploring Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar game world, you will gain more and more clues that your beloved one's destiny is connected with the strange religion of the Ulthar. It's look like cats taking central place in their pantheon, but sometimes people of Ulthar are killing cats. Maybe Menes tried to save one of the cats? But whatever he did, he shouldn't be burned at the stake - that's how Ulthar people are going to punish him.
Abandoned Crypt on Ulthar's cemetery
And soon you will be threatened by the Ulthar people. But if you wil be afraid and escape from Ulthar then innocent boy will be burned at the stake! But even escaping the death you again and again will see signs of cat influence: pictures, bas-reliefs, even fountains. And traveling through Ulthar's secret ways you will see many strange things - from the various puzzles and winter-garden to the alive crocodile!
Can you find a needle here?
Find out, why the citizens of Ulthar worship the cats and how it's connected with the Meneses fate. Discover the strange cult, taken over the town of Ulthar, that is using cats supernatural powers to rule the townsfolk. Save Menes before it's too late!
Now I will tell you about my experience with Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar Collector's Edition. Gameplay is pretty standard for the Hidden Object games - you are looking for the objects, named in the list below your screen, after some time you will have a hint, opening one of the objects for you (hints are rechargeable). After 1-2 hidden object scenes you will face the puzzle (matching objects, repairing mechanisms, opening locks and so on), most of them are familiar to every experienced casual gamer. But in whole gameplay isn't boring, it's hard to stop playing The Cats Of Ulthar before you end it.
I'm going to craft a special dress for you - Ulthar's dress
IMHO Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar game is short enough, it may be completed in one evening (or night). Of course, Collector's edition including bonus chapter - about 2 hours of additional game experience, but in whole I wasn't satisfied by the game length. Collector's edition of Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar also includes Integrated Strategy Guide, Wallpapers, dark and spooky Screensaver, soundtrack - traditional set for the Big Fish Games Collector's Edition. What I really liked - animals animation. Characters are animated in cartoon style, not my favorite, but animals (including the crocodile I mentioned above) are very realistic.
If you need some technical information about game (for example, experiencing bugs or something) go to the Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar game forum
Some abandoned houses of Ulthar are full with cats and ghosts, so they are looking more alive then other buildings
Summing up Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar Collector's Edition is good game. It's recommended for everyone who loves cats (cats are everywhere in the Ulthar - living cats, murals, statues and so on) and for other gamers, who is tired of usual HOGs about ghosts. Gameplay is captivating and interesting, landscapes are dark and beautiful. If you don't sure about it - just try the game - it's free (game Ghost Towns: The Cats Of Ulthar Collector's Edition is shareware, so you can play it free for one hour). And I hope you will like The Cats of Ulthar just as I do. Good luck!
