Haunted Legends: The Undertaker Collector's Edition
There are better choices
I've finished 90% of the game and this game still isn't very interesting. The high points are the funny little man and the obnoxious monkey. If you like the monkey, try any of the Hidden Wonders of the Depths match-3 games here at BigFish, which feature a crab very much like the monkey.
The downside of this game is the combination of 1) no map, 2) illogical sequences, 3) lots of back-tracking and 4) slow hint regeneration even on easy mode. This means if the game requires you to do something that makes no sense (happens frequently) you cannot look at a map to get some idea of what to do next. Instead, you are "hinting" from scene to scene trying to find the next step.
Another annoying aspect is how often certain tasks are repeated, especially opening a lock and starting a fire. Why would I use and discard the box of matches, and then the flint and steel, and then the burning ember and still find myself searching for a torch to light a fire?
The puzzles themselves are blindingly easy. What makes the game "difficult" is its poor design.
Final note, there is a room near the end of the game (no spoilers) where you will notice a lot of "lag time" -- the cursor is not responsive and it takes a long time to exit to another room. I recommend you save your game at that point.

I purchased all of the games in this series, and this one should not have been one of them. Puzzles & HO's too easy or made no sense. Same with using objects to "uncover something", a flagpole to lift a grate? Seriously? What's with the fish scales... No map, that means a lot of back and forth, if you know where your going and why. Game plays VERY slow. Two thumbs down.

At last, a Zombie game!
Recently so many games just have evil doers; too many hidden object games, with not much story, and loads of swirling ghostie baddies.
But at last a Zombie game! I could play those all the time, and will buy them all! Bring 'em on.

Another good ERS game
Well this one is quite easy. The HOS are good and the puzzles are not all that hard either. The hint button does work but will not need it much. The music is ok and the voice over and graphics are really good. Just a good fun game to pass the time away. IT has a pretty straight flow with some going back and forth. They all do now.

Great CE from ERS Studios
There was literally nothing I did not like about this game. Crisp clear graphics, clever interactive hos, evil little man & all of his nasty tricks, great storyline & sound track & fun puzzles with some different twists. Definitely had to think outside of the box on a few of them but all in all a very, very good game from ERS yet again. Love these combo hog/adventure games when they are so very well done. Kudos to the developers. This was a fairly long game & when you add in the Bonus play it's even better. Never was bored with this game.

ERS has done it again!
Another good game from ERS. (They really bounced back after the very disappointing Haunted Halls, Revenge of Dr. Blackmore.) Haunted Legends, The Undertaker CE is everything I have come to expect from ERS. Scary, colorful, interesting and fresh. And I adored the impudent capuchin.

WOW THANKS BFG!!
This is an AWESOME game and probably the best one of the Mystery Trackers series. The graphics are really good in this one and I just love that little man..lol I didn't even play 10 minutes of the demo before I purchased it, I knew right away it was a good one! Thanks BF for offering this one on a very cold "must stay inside" day here in Indiana!
