You are the proud new owner of Harlequin House. It’s moving-in day and, whilst you know there’s a lot of work to be done, you can’t help feeling this is going to be the start of a bright and beautiful future! What you don’t yet know, is that many years ago, a girl went missing from Harlequin House and was never seen again. Her story is untold but her spirit lives on…
Dare you enter the depths and despair of the past; follow a trail of secret messages and coded clues, left behind by an entity from another world? Are you brave enough to help unfold a history hidden by a family, from a time long ago?

All of Clue Cracker's online games so far have followed the same straightforward structure, where the solution to each puzzle unlocks the next. As with their others, the simple format uses video clips as well as text to advance the story and break up the puzzles.

The Haunting of Harlequin House is the most complex of the Clue Cracker online games filled with more intricate and multi-layered puzzles. This, plus the slightly more sinister theme, may mean it’s one to skip if you often play with very young children, but definitely not one to miss if you don’t (or once you’ve put them to bed if you do)
We move into a new house with a spooky past. We need to follow the coded clues left behind by the spirit of a girl who previously went missing there to discover what happened.
Yet again, the Clue Cracker team have developed a brilliant online 90 minute game, which is jammed with strong puzzles, great attention to detail, an engaging story line and some great tongue-in-cheek humour. Coupled with great value for money, this game is a sure fire hit for families, friends and enthusiasts alike!
