Shattered Minds: Masquerade
Some Tough HOS Scenes!
The story sometimes took some rather bizarre leaps, but I found the puzzles in this one to be do-able with a little thought and fairly minimal aggravation. The HOS scenes, however, is where this one shined. They were some of the more difficult I have encountered. Some of the difficulty was the description of the object, always accurate but often evoking a different image than I had in my mind, sometimes there were a bit dark, but mostly, it was just very, very skillful design that concealed them. Well done!

great game, great graphics
the game is really good and the HO scenes are pretty crowded but the graphics are so good that that is not a problem. the skip/hint button charges in about 30 seconds. no map, there is a diary. i had to cheat a few times because the hint doesn't hand-hold you so you sometimes have to really think what to do. it isn't hard....just logical and that is where i sometimes have a problem. i had to skip a good many mini games. i can't tell you about sound......didn't use it.

Fun and Adventure
I love such detective games: very captivating plot, many puzzles and charm of mystery.

This is a really good game to play as I got it in a 3 play pack with 2 other games, which where The Mystery Chronicles: Betrayals of Love and The Secret Order: New Horizons. So this was a worthy game pack to purchase.

I wasn't expecting much from this little gem, but I ended up really liking it! I played it straight through in about 3 hours; so not a long game, nor was it so impossible to solve it took all the enjoyment out of it. The story line is a bit shaky, but I found the hidden object scenes to be surprisingly difficult at times. They are very sneaky, hiding things where you'd never think to look. I think what I liked the best was the Music, which is a surprise for me, because sometimes music in games can be downright annoying. Think "'50's Detective" with the music. The game is set in New Orleans, but none of it is familiar. This is a great rainy day game, with a bit of challenge thrown in. I have over 300 games, & I think I'll keep this one around for awhile. It definitely has re-play value, as long as it isn't too often. I didn't see any map, but then I really didn't need it. It flows well; there is a bit of back & forth, but not as much as other games I've played recently. Yes, give this one a try!

I really enjoyed this game
I really enjoyed this game. I almost didn't try it because of some negative reviews. Then I realized this was the same company that developed the Nightfall Mysteries series which I have played and liked. The graphics do seem a little old school compared to some other recent games but the story and gameplay well make up for it. Everything is integrated in a way that keeps things moving. The voice-overs are also well done. The HOS are fairly standard with some interactive and challenging items. Puzzles aren't too easy but not difficult. There is no map but the backtracking isn't severe. You complete a general area then move on to another.The Hint let's you know if there is anything to do in a scene. The only complaint I have is that sometimes an unwanted inventory item would stick to my cursor. Mildly annoying. I had fun and I definitely think this game is worth judging on your own.
