Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull 4.1 5 196 196
Excellent Plus Loved it, bought it and played it many times. MCF you've done it again. Totally awesome game. Everything positive that the other Big/Little Fishies in this pond have said is all true. Thanks BF. If you like HO games, a challenge, a plot that continues to thicken and being a detective that never gives in, then this is the game for you. One negative: If Sara's husband had yelled at me one more time to "find the skulls detective" I would have pounced through my computer, tackled him in no time, then HE would have become the 13th skull - big time!

Wicked good One of the best HOG adventures so far. Enjoyable story line, with some fun plot twists. The live-action cut scenes were a pleasure. The characters were a hoot, the dialog believable in the game's context. The puzzles ranged from fairly easy to quite difficult, a good balance of simple and challenging. Some only took a couple of minutes, one or two were frustrating but still enjoyable. I have to admit to using "skip" a couple of times. The objectives were clear and, while the hints were maybe a bit TOO clear, they didn't detract significantly. You don't have to use them if you don't want to. Visually, this game was definitely a cut above. Very "atmospheric," a moody, spooky setting. The HO scenes and objects fit their locations better than in most games. The sound quality was good, the music well selected and the sound effects appropriate. The only problem was that a couple of times they were too repetitive; the loops could have been longer, or more varied. One character's comments near the end became particularly irritating. Overall, a real winner. January 3, 2012
Great game! Good story with a surprise ending hook. This is one of the more entertaining games I have played. It has an interesting story line with a surprise ending that makes the game play more exciting. Challenging without being frustrating. December 30, 2011
Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull This is a great game with very good graphics, lots of places to go and is one of the better games out there. I don't think there is an age that would not like it. Well worth the money. November 19, 2011
Pleasantly Surprised This game exceeded my expectations. The graphics were dark, but splendidly done and really gave a creepy feel to the game. I found it to be pretty challenging and it took me several hours to complete. I highly recommend this game. December 19, 2011
The only game I've felt compelled to review! Hands down the BEST HOG I've ever played (and believe me, I've played many#. I loved everything about this game although the music and then the talking at the end of the game got a bit much after awhile and I did end up muting it unless I was "talking" to a character. I loved the way the hint was set up, with the option of skipping or having up to 3 hints for each puzzle. I also loved how each puzzle and each step of the game wasn't completely obvious - you had to think about it a little more than with other HOGs I've played previously. It wasn't frustratingly hard to figure out, but the answers were not always 100% obvious #like the curser did not change shape when it passed over something you needed to pick up so you had to pay more attention, you were not automatically given instructions on how to beat the various puzzles although if you clicked the hint button you would be, etc#. I cannot wait to find more games that play out like this one! July 13, 2013
Impressive! I'm not an easy reviewer, but these guys really did their homework. They hired a Louisiana team to help illustrate local history and culture, and it shows. Unlike other games, this one is true to the region it represents. And the game was a lot of fun. It had great humor, and was a really nice departure from cutesie Gothic. A tip for the weary - take notes. They'll save you a lot of running around. June 4, 2013
Hidden object game - with real actors. The best aspect of this game was the insertion of real actors. The challenges were sufficiently thought provoking and worthy. The graphics were among some of the best. The ending was a great surprise. April 10, 2013
Good game that makes you think This is a hidden object game with a twist. You look for objects, but you also look for actual clues. Live action videos are included so it is as if you are having a conversation with the people in the game. It includes hints in case you get stuck. I used some, but for the most part it was fun to sit and think things through. The only thing I would change woud be an option to slip Cooter the sleeping potion so Charlotte and I could run off together. March 10, 2013
Fun, Challenging and Keeps You Playing I like the way the game lets you explore a town, though a really small one. It's got a graveyard and that's my thing. The HO challenges are not much of a challenge but what really forces you to be a clever 'detective' are the other puzzles and figuring out how to use the objects in your inventory. The ending was a bit of a letdown, not what I expected but the game itself, the figuring things out and solving the mystery bit are fun. November 9, 2012
