Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek Collector's Edition
This is one of the Best games I have played in recent memory! Why? Because all the elements for a great adventure game are here.. Interesting, engaging storyline, great graphics & sound (Plus voice overs are a big plus!), HOG scenes are easy, quick, fun & non-intrusive, plus extra points for not Punishing us for clicking wrong, there is a log book with a journal, map, photo panel & even an Objective/Goals screen with what to do next! The hints charge super fast, you get to talk to a few characters so you don't get that empty Myst feeling (no offence, I know they kinda started it all, next to Zork & a couple of others ; ) And the puzzles actually make sense with easy to find or recall hints never too far out of reach. The scenes are great too, they are all interesting & hold there own character. For example, there is a farm, boathouse, garage, church & more. There isn't alot of unnecessary back tracking which is good. And most all of the inventory objects make sense in their uses. Oh, & I can't forget the super cool Detective Pin-Board.. what a great, useful, fun twist surprise. Love it!

Great game. I'm critical of this type of game and have played many of them. I'm usually satisfied if they are just good. This one is great. Pacing is perfect. Story is intriguing. Good mixture of different game mechanics. Sweeping changes in scenery. The puzzles never feel tedious. Get this if you are on the fence about getting a game and you like this sort of game.

Best game played so far
This is a brilliant game. The best Big Fish game I've played so far, and I've played about 20-25 to date. So fun, and interesting, with lots to do, and the added bit of piecing together clues and photos on an evidence wall adds a bit more to an otherwise normal puzzle/H0 adventure. Its a really good length game too, took me several evenings. Definitely highly recommended!

This is indeed a great and fantastic game! Once you start, you won't stop until you solve the mystery! A real detective adventure game. The puzzles are good, the story flows smoothly. The HOs well defined. It is definitely my favourite game which made me jump a few times; I was so caught up in the story. I finished the game in one sitting: I had to know! I highly recommend this game.

This is one of those games I bought due to the excellent reviews, stunning visuals, music and how it sucked you right into the game! I usually do not play a game that taxes my brain but this looked like it could be fun and challenging on those days when I dont have to go to work and have time to concentrate! I have not finished the game but plan on it when I am on vacation. I played the full hour demo and really enjoyed it!

Enigmatis is the Best!
I just finished playing Enigmatis. It is by far one of the top three games I have ever played on Bigfish! Fantastic! Every aspect of this game is superb. All of the things I usually skip
(cut scenes), or mute (voice-overs and dialogue) - I didn't even think of skipping or muting! Who'd have thunk it? Music can be very annoying when it is mediocre or repetitive - but in this game the music was dramatic and beautiful. I can't wait for the Grudzinski brothers to produce the sequel!

overall a really good one!
Nice plot and I feel I got my money's worth in terms of length of the game. My one and only complaint was the amount of running around. It would have been nice if the map linked to locations instead of having to run back and forth. This might just be an issue for the android version.

The Ghosts of Maple Creek
Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek Review
Developed by Artifex Mundi
This game is about a detective in an investigation to find Kate Burrows. And, based on the bonus content, a detective is in investigation too, to find Emily Smith. Lots of anything greats is here, such:
*Challenge hidden object scene
Any of the good is here.

Story line is extremely engaging, almost addictive. I didn't get bored with the story, like I do with many games.
The only caveat seems to be slight typos in the HOS. I had to use a hint to find the "Spectre" which turned out to be a "Sceptre". Oh, well, still loved the game.
