Kudos to the developers for such a winning idea. Nice plot and I feel I got my money's worth in terms of length of the game. I loved actually solving the crime. The bonus chapter of the game is short but it adds a lot to the story. It is kept up to date with sketches, notes and clues that you can reference at any time and it really adds a lot of information to the story. This game also has an awesome soundtrack. Your journal is also an amazing source of information. This is a special Collector's Edition release full of exclusive extras you won't find in the standard version of the game. Next to the Evidence tab is a Magnifying glass. The best HOGs are the ones with the best story. There are also many puzzles scattered throughout the game, ranging from fairly simple to challenging. Blonde moment maybe?
I can honestly say that this game ranks in my top 10 favorite hidden object games ever. But I digress. The plot is great and keeps going into the other games in this series hence why I needed a refresher. Use this to examine evidence items more closely. Next to the Evidence tab is a Magnifying glass. Also, if you are playing in casual mode, there is no click penalty! Some items need additional tasks to be completed before you can collect these objects. The scenes are well drawn and the objects fit the scenes although many of the scenes could be categorized as junk piles but many of the objects are extremely small and since the scenes are dark they are doubly hard to find. I understood the past enough through the main game so the recap wasn't necessary. Good music too. I loved actually solving the crime. I had to use a hint to find the "Spectre" which turned out to be a "Sceptre". In the hidden object scenes, the items you need to find are listed in the Object List at the bottom of the screen. However, I played this game again to remember the story-line because this series is a trilogy and the final installment was released a few months ago and since I love this series, I thought a little refresher was in order to play the last game.Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek is a detective story. I remember when this game first came out, I thought this was the most genius approach ever! As you progress, locations that you pass through are also displayed. I rarely use the notebook in games. Some hidden object items go into your Inventory for use in a story scene. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by kevsters from I have only one regret This franchise is the reason that I've fallen in love with Point and Click adventures. This is the game that I hold all others of this sort of HUD and puzzle game up against now, and while I forget a lot of the others I've played, this one is the game that I can't forget. Luckily, you do have a hint button and if you are playing in the casual setting it recharges quickly. I have to say that the bonus game was really short and although it explained the past to you, it really wasn't very riveting. Cheers developers! Let's be honest here. In your hotel room, you have an evidence board. Rated 5 out of 5 by megwoman25 from Review Of Completed Game I definitely recommend not only this game but the series.
Les Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek Collectors Edition
The storyline is interesting - like most of these sorts of games there is a plot, but this one is especially well written. Most of Crek characters are well voiced, but there is one character who is very stilted and mechanical sounding. It looked to be just another haunted town, amnesiac protagonist, dark hidden object game. This is the game that I hold all others of this sort of HUD and puzzle game up against now, and while I forget a lot of the others I've played, Ghksts one is the game that I can't forget. The bonus chapter of the game is short but it adds a lot to the story. Oh, well, still loved the game. The bonus game only adds Indian Legends Solitaire 25 minutes but the main Enigmayis: is a gem that is still fantastic even 5 years later. There are hidden object scenes and story scenes. I never had to do a pipe puzzle for instance. This adds a lot of additional gameplay. You collect Evidence items in story scenes. Locations Battle Slots marked where you need to complete tasks. There are also no collectibles, morphs or achievements but I have to say I Mapoe of liked the fact it was bare.
Cheers developers! You are one of my all time favorites!! Your journal is also an amazing source of information. Each scene is visited times but I was never asked to find the same item twice. It feels like a detective cop show with the evidence board. There are hidden object scenes and story scenes. As you progress and collect items, open the tab and place the items in the correct places. I also never had to open any zippers with a paperclip. So what's missing you may ask? There are also many puzzles scattered throughout the game, ranging from fairly simple to challenging. I didn't get bored with the story, like I do with many games. Right click the Magnifying glass to put it back in place after use. Very creepy, very Silence of the Lambs-esque. Enigmatis is a gorgeous game that takes a tired storyline and makes it interesting again. It is kept up to date with sketches, notes and clues that you can reference at any time and it really adds a lot of information to the story.
Some hidden object items go into your Inventory for use in a story scene. I could also use the hint in the hidden object scene Wonderburg fear I'd lose the achievement for no hints used all game. The graphics Millionaire Manor: The Hidden Object Show like brush painted and aren't the most detailed I have ever seen but do a good job of creating the creepy atmosphere and ambiance. This is a very nice addition that more games should consider adding. Let's be honest here. The game only has 2 modes of difficulty.
