Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water 4.7 5 76 76
Mystery of the Ancients haven't had to skip or hint yet! I have not completed The game yet, I just hit Chap 4. So far very beautiful artwork and the game has humor i.e." I have not had a tetanus shot when you come across a rusty nail." I am sure the EXPERT gamers may say this is too easy because you do not have to wander for miles and most objects found can be used fairly quickly and you can teleport using the map if needed . I love that feature but since this game is so beautiful, I actually prefer to walk instead and enjoy the scenery and the locations are close enough to enjoy doing that. Rare in most of these games. I just sit and look at the HO scenes in awe of the detail. clear, not too many too find to keep the game flowing. So I rate 5 for challenege because for me I prefer not to pull out my hair or have to stop the story for every single mini game or puzzle and sit in frustration I dont like to skip but most always do because I don't want to stop my mission to hurt my brain. I prefer simple quick fun puzzles that can be done in 5 minutes. I cannot comment on the length but to me even if a game is only 3-4 hours it is worth full price if it is re-playable and it is the highest quality. I tend to get bored of games that are too long I forget what was going on if I don't get back to them for a week. This developer did not look familiar to me I clicked on the games tab and only see 2 others Mystery of the Ancients Lockwood Manor and Kate Arrow Desserted Wood. I pulled up the reviews and bought them straight away just now without even trying the demo. I hope they are as great as this! Happy Gaming people! Now back to this great game to save someone who doesn't deserve it. # you have to play to know what that means LOL#!I have only done 1 other review I hope you find this helpful. Loved it so muchI had to do one! December 2, 2012
TOP-NOTCH ADVENTURE HOS A challenging and unique adventure game with an interesting story. You see a huge tentacled creature is not only pursuing one of the missing archaeologists in an abandoned town, but it is everywhere and putting up obstacles to block your way every chance it gets. Lots of places to visit, things to do, and challenging puzzles. Interactive map and a journal Mini-games are unique, fun and moderately challenging. Interactive HOS are large, clearly defined and not too cluttered (always important). Great graphics; you can adjust the ambient sound. Dialogue is written; nice sounding narrator; music apropos. I would have liked a little more of a challenge in figuring out what to do next. It seemed pretty clearcut on where you had to go and what you had to do next. Still, it is a funtastic game. A must-buy. November 30, 2012
Some flaws but I loved it Great artwork, HOS that I didn't need to squint for. And there aren't too many of them to impede the flow of the game. Superb interactive maps. The story was all over the place but somehow manages to work despite itself. Transitions between chapters could be smoother. Everything you find to help you progress is called a tool ... whether it is or not. But, bottom line for me is that, no matter how many nits I could pick, this is still one of my favorite games of the year. I'll seek out other titles from this developer. Highly recommended.

Worth the money Not hard 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. December 1, 2012
Great story with great graphics! I love this game! The storyline is great, a real HOPA game! There are 3 game modes; I played in Advanced mode, which has no sparkes. - The graphics are gorgeous, clear! - There is just the good amount of HOS. They are interactive and not cluttered. - The puzzles are quite easy, but really interesting. - You have a journal, which is useful, and also an interactive map: no need to walk... just jump to the location! - The objectives are so clear, that I didn't have to use the hint system. Ok... the game is not long, about 2 1/2 hours without skipping anything, but there are many things to do and I enjoyed every minute! December 1, 2012
Excellent Adventure!!! I completed the demo and found it to be great!! The story is about finding missing archeologists and also dealing with a mythical sea creature. The HOS were clear and not so hard to find that you get annoyed. The grafics and sound was great with an interesting storyline. If you like stories of Poseidon and mythology then this is the game for you. The mini games were ok and not so difficult that you throw in the towel. Very exciting game. Try it... you will not be disappointed. Have to purchase now. Happy gaming fishies!!!!! November 30, 2012
This is a great game! I liked just about everything about this game. I thought the storyline was interesting and the games were mostly easy and entertaining. I loved the graphics! It's also long enough that I didn't mind not getting the collector's edition. I had a free game token that I needed to use, otherwise, I would have splurged. December 1, 2012
Another great mystery game! From the Lockwood manor peeps comes this excellent almost cthulu-esqe mystery game. Thank goodness for the instant travel map.....which makes life much wont get too stuck as the map also gives you an idea of where you need to go to do something. Beautiful graphics and good storyline keep gameplay interesting. Puzzles are varied and good and there are just about the right amount of HO scenes. Another enjoyably good solid effort. Keep it up!!

wowwow Wow, just wow. I'm not finished the game, but I can tell you that this game is AMAZING! The game is visually good and the puzzles are different. December 2, 2012
