The sheriff of Meadows Town has disappeared without a trace, and you've been hired as his replacement. But a recent storm has emptied the town of almost all inhabitants. The streets are boarded up and abandoned, and no one can explain the forces behind the weather... or the terrifying string of murders that has just begun. Only you and your deputy are left to piece together the mystery of mummified bodies and ghostly apparitions. Can an angry spirit really be the cause of the turmoil? Or is there something else afoot in this strangely empty town? Find out in this spooky Hidden Object Adventure game! This is a special Collector's Edition release full of exclusive extras you won't find in the standard version. As a bonus, Collector's Edition purchases count toward three stamps on your Monthly Game Club Punch Card! The Collector's Edition includes:

Have purchased and played enough of these types of ERS games. Apparently there is a Viking curse who is killing these people or is it? I can't wait for this weekend sale. Despite that they remain a fav for me!! Now Native American ghosts I can see! I only saw one HOS in the entire demo which was during 83 minutes of game play. Maybe some other reviewers will change my mind. There is little to no thinking involved. I think I figured out who the "bad guy" was within the first 5 minutes, but now I have to play out the game to see if I'm right So she somehow goes off the deep end and becomes a villianess bent on some kind of revenge and here's how we get to be part of the action. The storyline is a new take, which I liked a lot. I for one feel my intelligence being insulted to some degree when these things occur.

In some parts, the story also does not make sense - the whole Vikings in a North American land just does not seem to make much sense to us. Hidden Objects were done very well. This game had everything I like. Got this game free as part of an offer, and I enjoyed it immensely. Again another winner from ERS!! Visuals are great, puzzles solvable without extreme frustration and creative HOS. The voiceovers are very good and, yes, lip-sync is back - thank you ERS! There was only Edihion puzzle that I had to skip, and that was near the end of the Mahjong Valentines Day game. I, for one, was pulling out my hair with the hidden objects in finding Nemos Secret: Vulcania item and having to replace it back into the picture. We don't have to import our angry visitors from the past here in the USA! I've never been a fan of ERS games, however, I do give each game a fair demo. Hidden object scenes are few and far between, but each of them is well-made and pretty smart. There were Undiscovered morphing items. And the factor of no actual morphing objects, nor any HO areas just Meaadows.

Kudos though for no sparkles or black bar tips on the hardest mode. There is little to no thinking involved. The Bonus Chapter provides an addition 45 minutes or so of a similar-quality gameplay. Thank you. The storyline in Ghosts of the Past is far from original, as can easily be predicted from another 'car-crash' opening. All game makers have a certain style graphically. I thoroughly recommend you give it a try and hope you enjoy it as much as I did. In my opinion, this is an entertaining game but the Standard Edition appeals to me more, I just don't think the CE has enough substance to woo me, enjoy! Really good. I do hope these add to the story and the game continues. However, I just felt like I needed to rate this game as I think it truly deserves 5 stars. I'm not pumped up by Ghosts of the Past: Bones of Meadows Town or anything, it is a great fun game to play, but nothing to write home about. Thank God for a map though! Instead of a plain, boring Journal or Diary, we have an Evidence Board.

Your Sheriff's badge allows you to go directly to the Evidence board where you will hang up pictures and descriptions of the people you are investigating, and then you need to place items of evidence under the corresponding person. Each game and HOP ties into the story. The Bonus Chapter provides an addition 45 minutes or so of a similar-quality gameplay. The voiceovers are Timeless: The Forgotten Town good and, yes, lip-sync is back - thank you ERS! The effects and sounds Battle Slots fine, neither special nor as spooky as we have expected. I admit that I am an ERS super-fan and so the game was an instant purchase for me. A new sheriff arrives in town to solve the mystery of serial murder and disappearances. There are unfortunately some downers as well and they mostly are in the " are you kidding me " category.


Love it! Hidden Objects were done very well. Then again I grew up in the 70's so my memory isn't very good. The atmosphere of the game is creepy and spooky, just like I like it and this time there are just a few animals in the game, which aren't too cute. However, toward the end, I started to feel like the just needed to get the game done. The ability for the game player to customize game play as to hints, skip time, degree of difficulty etc. Discover the truth, behind an archological dig and a missing Sheriff, who's infact always present, without beeing noticed. I didn't give it any attention because it seemed too "fantasy" but that is far from the truth. Your Sheriff's badge allows you to go directly to the Evidence board where you will hang up pictures and descriptions of the people you are investigating, and then you need to place items of evidence under the corresponding person. You arrive in town just as a major storm is approaching and the area is being evacuated, so I wonder what else can go wrong. So worth it! However, I just felt like I needed to rate this game as I think it truly deserves 5 stars. The Vikings were fierce, world travelers who conquered the land and the seas. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think.

So, I will be buying this weekend. Reminded me a bit of a wedding; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. So i'll wait for a great sale for this one, or until the SE comes out. However, I just felt like I needed to rate this game as I think it truly deserves 5 stars. Very nice, realistic sound FX. And the factor of no actual morphing objects, nor any HO areas just yet. My one and only criticism is the silly to me voices that say "Yes" every time you accomplish something. The gameplay was great and the visuals were excellent. It was almost as if they were trying to incorporate two stories together in one game. The gameplay is the best I've seen in quite a while. The graphics in Ghosts of the Past are nothing to rave about. Still looking for that one to knock my socks off! The beginning and ending were interesting. Also fun are the HO's. A far as level of challenge goes, I played on the most difficult option and I only skipped one mini-game because it was taking entirely too long and I got frustrated.

9 thoughts on “Ghosts of the Past: Bones of Meadows Town Collectors Edition

  1. Other Extras included in the Collector's Edition can be found in the checklist below. There is an evidence board where you place collected evidence. There are four different ways to play and there is a bonus game. The gameplay was smooth and I downloaded and played with no issues at all.

  2. In this game you can focus on what is happening and not worry about the number of collectables you need to find. I've been very dissapointed with so many of ERS latest games, but with this new release, they're finally back. The effects and sounds are fine, neither special nor as spooky as we have expected. However, I just felt like I needed to rate this game as I think it truly deserves 5 stars. The second one I found quite amusing!

  3. In fact I didn't even get around to playing it until I exhausted games I actually purchased after this was downloaded into my account. Have purchased and played enough of these types of ERS games. Just a thought : Anyways, if ERS made all their games to the same standard as this game, they'd be almost faultless.

  4. I think this one will appeal to all levels of players. You have my vote for one of the best games that I have played in a long time. Discover the truth, behind an archological dig and a missing Sheriff, who's infact always present, without beeing noticed. Great map that allowed you to instantly travel to the next scene.

  5. I didn't give it any attention because it seemed too "fantasy" but that is far from the truth. I was a bit disappointed in the fact that there aren't enough Hidden Object Scenes, however they are well done with a new concept. Mini Games were different and most importantly for me, the HO scenes were varied and brightly lit. I do recommend the game as an SE and I am pleased that ERS has at once again lived up to its reputation as a very good game maker. Now Native American ghosts I can see!

  6. This game is going on my to buy list. I especially like the map to it, It's not only jumpable, but I love the legend on it. I have been critical of some of their recent efforts but this a step in the right direction IMHO.

  7. And like another reviewer, Vikings in America? For me, the sound effects are more important than the music, which I rarely listen to for very long anyway. However, it is a lengthy bonus game with several new areas to explore.

  8. I didn't run across very many in the demo, so hoping more show up. It is not easy to play or I am just totally uncoordinated, which may be the case. A definite Pick up for me! Helped by his rather too helpful deputy, he sets about compiling the evidence on an evidence board and pursuing his ghostly adversary. There aren't too many mini games either but they all seem fairly easy such as placing single fingerprints one at a time onto the matching originals.

  9. A game's superiority comes from how it captures its audience versus finding all the funky things that CE are famous for. The effects and sounds are fine, neither special nor as spooky as we have expected. I give this one a pass.
