    Default DOS Point & Click Mystery/Horror - help finding

    As per the title - I'm trying to remember a 2D point and click horror/mystery game for DOS, possibly from the late 1980's early 1990's, perhaps before Alone in the Dark. I don't remember many colour but I remember there being blue and green, in a large house at night looking for something (clues?). Any tips/help is appreciated.
    Whaddya mean invalid parameters?!

    Thus far Last Half of Darkness is the closest to what I remember although the interface was surely more advanced and the screen/visuals were larger. Still I appreciate the help.

    Realm of Terror looks a bit too good as does Inherent Evil.

    It's a long shot, but Iron Helix?

    I'm gonna go with Uninvited. Fits your description much more closely from what I remember.

    Shadow of the Comet? I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream? Phantasmagoria? The 7th Guest? Atmosfear: The Third Dimension? The Dark Eye? Sanitarium?

    Do you remember anything else about the game? Any plot points or settings or characters or anything?

    So far no dice. All I can remember is that the setting was in a house, at least the visual I remember is being in a house near water at night. The colours were limited and it was perhaps something related to mystery and or ghosts.

    I do not know why I thought it was Alone in the Dark as that's 3D... perhaps it was something by Sierra.

    Not as old as the one you suggest, but what about this one, Amber.

    A house near water. Eerie/spooky game.

    What about Maniac Mansion? Or Gahan Wilson's The Ultimate Haunted House?

    Also sounds like it could be Laura Bow: The Colonel's Bequest

    Also could be the extremely rare Last Half of Darkness Part III, which starts out on a pier.
