Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water Collector's Edition 4.5 5 99 99
not a hard game and worth the money I played part of the demo and bought it. The graphics are really good and has voice over. Music not bad. Has good flow and has a map showing you where you are and what is needed next. The hint button only tells you that nothing to do here. Looks like a good game and story line. HOS you need to look hard at times puzzles can be challenging but ok. Give it a try. May 18, 2013
nystery of the ancients: Curse of the Black Water Coll. Ed. Would recommend it highly. after the original game the extra is just as interesting. Visual very good. November 12, 2012
Gorgeous Graphics, Great Game VERSION Collector's Edition demo DEVELOPER Maria Glorum GENRE Adventure/Hidden Object mythology/horror STORYLINE On a remote island in the town of Black Water, two archaeologists have uncovered an ancient ruin?and awoken a titanic monster from its cursed sleep. The town has been evacuated and the archaeologists haven't been heard from in days. It's up to you to discover what happened to them, solve the mystery of the Black Water Curse, and defeat the ancient evil. GAMEPLAY The map in this game is as much a work of art as it is functional. It's beautifully drawn, and indicates active areas and objectives as well as functioning as a transporter. The journal holds your notes, collected bits of backstory, and clues you gather. I didn't use the hint system during the demo, but I would imagine it's not necessary outside the HO scenes considering the nature of the map. The puzzles range from familiar to unique, but the familiar have been adapted to the context of the game. They're of medium difficulty. There are also 39 turtles to find (special objects). TECHNICAL No issues. GRAPHICS Amazingly rendered 3D graphics in both static and animated scenes, all in rich colors. I can't say enough about the graphics; they are superlative. CUTSCENES Perfect. The monster startles and even frightens at times, it's so realistic. The backstory fills in in an illustrated manuscript style. MUSIC With apologies, I apparently had the music volume too low to notice it. SOUND Ambient and game sounds appropriate and well done. VOICEOVER The only voice I heard during the demo was the narrator's and, considering the "ancient mythology" theme of the game, I thought his southern drawl out of context. It's not something that would stop me from purchasing though. SUMMARY If this is the quality of game Maria Glorum produces, we can expect great things from them. This is a buy for me, and I recommend it. Overall, it's a superior game. November 12, 2012
Another Great CE!!!! Music Excellent!! HO scenes not too easy/difficult......Puzzles challenging, not impossible w/o hints......Excellent Graphics.....Played 1/2 hour,then purchased.....Interactive HO great!!!! Worth two ceredits..... November 1, 2012
Sorry to see the Trial end! I am a huge HOG fan! I've played for a long time. Excellent game! Challenging w/out being impossible to play. Graphics,sound,etc were all tops! Even the Custom Cursor, which can sometimes move very sloppily in most games, moves well.. Hints are plentiful, far from obtuse. Storyline is the same as so many,nothing unique. The only area where I would recommend improvement. I love HOGs that offer a "Bonus" article. This does not disappoint! Find 50 turtles, fairwarning, you will NOT find them in every scene. I would absolutely recommend this game as an enjoyable, challenging game. Sorry when the trial 60 min. expired! This one I'll buy! November 1, 2012
No Car Crash!!! Have no complaints on this game EXCEPT, If I pick up an item (because my pointer turned to a hand), then I already know it is an important item to be used later. Other than that, the hint fills fast, skip fills fast, music is good, graphics are fair, storyline if really good. I beta tested this game and was really miffed when my demo was over. I was just getting into it. It did take an eternity to download (and I have the fastest internet in the U.S. as rated by a top PC mag). It took over an hour. Otherwise a really good game.

Wow! This game was so much fun! The graphics are crisp and gorgeous! Not too many HOS and the few that are in the game are interactive and even more so in the bonus game. Storyline was interesting. I actually played the whole game in one day and not because it was short but because it kept my attention! November 10, 2012
RELEASE THE CRACKEN!!!!!!!! Absaloutly loved the Demo from beginning to end...on my list from last months to this months to buy for sure..had a blast playing playing it...the Visuals were outstanding and the Sounds were great..only thing is i'm one of those people that would really like VO's in a game...level of challenge was great..loved the storyline as I really love storys about ancient Gods...etc...I highly recommend this game to all level of players November 1, 2012
Great Game! I really had a lot of fun playing this game. I played it on the hardest level and when I do the HO scenes I force myself to 'find' the objects in the order they appear on the list just to make it harder. I don't use the strategy guide and had the hints turned off. It took me about 6 hours to play it that way. Well worth my money. I enjoyed the music, art and feel of the game. Well done! November 3, 2012
Fab game This is an excellent game in that it has all different 'mini games' and not just hidden objects. Could be just me but this lasted the pace, wasn't a game which was finished in an hour. The extra game level is brill as well. November 7, 2012
