Mostly a HOG
29 June 2013
Summary: I had played the other 2 games in this series and expected this one to be similar. I had some of the same visuals but unlike the other 2 was mostly a HOG which I am not terribly fond of. I don't mind them interspersed in the game but I do not like when there is one after the other. It looks good though and is well done.
Summary: I really like the way the game plays on Haunted Houdini better. Haunted Houdini is 2011 or 2012 and it has more storyline and problem solving than this one. This one is a lot of hidden object finding. This was one of the earlier games to come out in 2009. I would not purchase it again even though it was only $3.00 when you download on Amazon.
Summary: Typical of every HOG, the story pretty much takes a back seat to the gameplay. Here you are trying to solve the mystery surrounding the death of Edgar Allan Poe. Not as compelling as you might hope. As far as Edgar Allan Poe is concerned, you'll learn more about him by looking him up in Wikipedia (some reviewers described this particular game as if it were edutainment). As far as HO gameplay, the artwork is nicely done.
Summary: An annoying thing about this game is that even when you click on an object, the game sometimes doesn't recognize that you've found it. You have to click it just right, in the right spot--it's too persnickety. It's a bit boring. There's a story line, but it doesn't really engage you. The graphics are pretty cool. Maybe I'm just getting tired of the hidden object games, but this one just didn't do anything for me.
Summary: the game is great, maybe for newb's. kids would love the game, 8 and up. i don't consider myself a gamer, but for some reason in my old age, gaming is what keeps my mind active. the game is somewhat hard and the mystery is to find out what happened to him. story line is somewhat interesting, hints are plentifull. this is a multi-age game to own. i just happen to love games that make me use my mind.
Summary: I bought this after finishing Midnight Mysteries The Salem Witch Trials. I thought it was an adventure hidden object. It's nothing like Salem at all. I was disappointed and wish I'd saved the money. Mostly HOG. Nice graphics but hidden objects are a bit tedious to find and I got bored very quick. Would recommend to people mainly interested in HOG only.
Summary: This was a great game. I enjoyed the story-line, the games were fun to play, the graphics were great. If you enjoy other Mumbo Jumbo games you will certainly love this one. One problem however, when I would exit this game my computer would go into a mode that asked us to shut computer down. It could be because I am using an older computer. While playing the game I had no problem.
Summary: This would be a great game for the first time gamer of this type of game, Hidden objects, seek and find. It really guides you along the way, there are also a lot more Hidden object scenes than anything else. The puzzles are on the easy side to moderate. You can't really get lost either. A step up in this game type would be Dreamland and Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi, these offer far more difficult puzzles and allow for some roaming around freedom.
Summary: If you like HOG games you should love this one. There are so many objects to find it seems that's all this game is about. You don't really have to follow what's going on as the game leads you through everything. The few puzzles included are too easy and the graphics aren't very good. I enjoy games with more adventure and puzzle solving than hidden objects. I do like Poe so I find some of the information given enjoyable but there are way too many HO's to find.
