You were out exploring and found an old abandoned castle. After going inside to check it out you twisted your ankle. You can't find your phone and you don't have a ride. Now you must figure out how to escape!

When I started this game It took me a while to see the Room Transition buttons so I'd recommend making those atleast a little more noticeable in the future.
I like how two of the rooms in-game are actually from a Single Room where photos had been taken from different angles. That also makes me beg the question if some of these rooms are even from the same castle. Visually very inconsistent.
This game has very little interactivity and your art assets are underwhelming to say the least, Like the broken Piggy Bank that's been hastily scribbled over on photoshop, or how the locked room Door is duplicated from the room with the Clock. Also when I look at the Pearl Necklace I can easily tell where you've cheaply erased the background off whatever stock photo you grabbed from Google.

I feel that you could've gone a little further by adding some ambient noise or text to read in order to make this game feel more compelling. I wanna know what this place was about, why is it all fucked up inside, why was it abandoned, things like that can make the experience more enriching and incentivise a player. It can also help inspire the developer to craft more interesting puzzles and help give context to puzzle clues, more on that ont he next paragraph.
I tried to beat this by myself but after about half-an-hour I gave up on trying to find the third pearl and looked at your walkthrough video, I wonder how someone was supposed to figure out that the scrambled word was actually some meaningless name that you intended the player to input in a lockbox that in-itself is also a piece of shit with a camo rating of 99,9%, There was no hint towards that name anywhere else in the castle. It doesn't even read on the back of any books in the archive room the only room with books in the whole castle with a whopping 10 rooms to explore.

TLDR; This game is bland, potentially frustrating, visually inconsistent and very boring.
1.5 hats to keep it real, Take some time to flesh things out.

nice scenery, it is neat, but the game just gets boring as most of the rooms have NO interaction

Not good. It is so hard to tell what you can interact with. Most of the game can be solved by clicking wildly, except for the third pearl part which is next to impossible. The password, at least to me, means nothing. The spot where you input the password is way way too hard to find.

Worth a couple clicks, but after that it's tiring looking for items and locks.
