My "Top Dog" for this game comes with a huge warning: I am biased for difficult games. That said, Lighthouse is the game for you if you, too, are an experienced adventurer who revel in difficult puzzles. Lighthouse is not just hard-- it's also very unforgiving as it'll happily let you advance without all the necessary items. The results of actions you do have to be uncovered most of the time. Still, it's got a great surrealistic story (explore a strange world to find your missing daughter), good length, and did I mention wonderful but difficult puzzles? <G>
