Mishap 2: An Intentional Haunting
Worthy Sequel (although it's just more of the same)
Final review after finishing the game:
+ high quality videos with perfect voice-overs
+ great visual style (I can deal with motions going on in every scene)
+ lots to do for boni
+ a CE packed into a regular release
o Nothing really new in the game. You more or less have the same tasks as the first game. (One big scene, three smaller ones, same amount of objects to find, find 5 ghosts, piece together a gadget, solve riddle, mini game, rinse and repeat.)
- Mini Games are hit and miss. Ideas recycled from the first game (Tower Defense, the Bakery game has become a hair salon game...). Some games are easy, some games are - for me - impossible to complete (Tower Defense - unfortunately, the walkthrough provided on this site doesn't really help either.) Some games aren't explained well (see: usage of surgery objects).
Bottom Line: If you loved the first one then definitely buy this game. If not, play the first one, then this one!

Pretty much HO
Great graphics and music is good and different. Fun to listen to.
Has voice over
Hint button works good.
Lots and lots of dialog...
Pretty much HOS. Do not get a large screen on my MAC which makes it hard to see the HO good. Lots and Lots of HO to find and not all that easy. Takes lots of time but good practice.
The into is long and different. Again real good graphics and a cute game. Not much or I should say no adventure in this game. All HOS.

Different and fun.
I usually like a little more adventure in my games--walking around, looking at things, figuring out where to go and what to do--but in this game, you have only limited choices at any given time, so not a lot of freedom or detective work. That said, this formulaic little game works well. The colors are bright, lots of funny animated items in each scene. Although it's mostly hidden object scenes, it doesn't feel like some of the tedious ones I've tried. The mini-games are varied and difficulty also varies. I wish they had a practice screen before each one, as they had lots of rules for each (arcade-type) game and it took a round or two for me to figure out what to do. The voice-overs are good except for the main character. The professor sounds okay but just speaks way too slowly. There are a lot of little stories if you want to read them, about each ghost and area, but that's optional. It took me over four hours, so reasonable length. Except for the mini-games, it's pretty touch-screen friendly. I'll be looking for the first one in this series.

This was a great game. The graphics and animation was awesome. The only complaint I have is no wide screen. Options need to be put in these games for that.

Too Busy for my Taste.
I wish I had read the walk through before I started the demo. There are so many things to do it's mind boggling! I'm sure die-hard gamers found this challenging but I just found it very busy and I didn't understand everything I was supposed to do.
There are the standard very large lists of items to find in each of the HOS -- 1 HOS in the main room and in each of the other 3 rooms; 1 can of Ultimo Energy to find in each of the 4 scenes; and a number of ghosts to find in each of the 4 scenes; plus there is a puzzle where you piece together numbers, drawings; plus or minus letters next to pictures to complete a challenge like "plunge something in water". Then you have to find those items and do what the challenge message said. Are you confused yet? I was. There are other puzzles at the end of these HOS and challenges but I never made it that far. I finally went to the walk through after I completed the demo and that puzzled also looked to be as convoluted as the rest. I gave up!
Anyway read some reviews, play the demo, and if you're not into very challenging games (like me), look at the walk through.
