Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water
Well worth the time to play
Although I would not have made it through without finding a walkthrough online. As with all of these games, there are times when the next step is simply not logical -- collect a jar of termites to eat away at some boards in a matter of seconds? Not even in Louisiana do they work that fast. What's wrong with a hammer? Or using a circular saw rather than bolt cutters? And yes, a crab can be smashed with the ball of a ball-and-chain manacle. But overall, a lot of fun and certainly kept my interest.

This is a pretty good game with some very easy puzzles and a few that are a little challenging. The story is easy to follow as is the movement throughout the game. A map is available if you get lost or need help figuring out where you have something that still needs to be done. The ending is VERY abrupt which is kind of odd in that everything else seems to have a solid story. But good game, nonetheless.

This game got my attention with the first scene. I liked that, rather than lull you into a game, it's nice getting your heart pumping from the get go. I wish I had gotten the CE since the SE seemed to end abruptly. Still, was a fun adventure.

This was a fun game. The visuals were excellent. Story was a little silly but the game was fun to play. I really liked the magic stone part. Good game.

Too much information!
I play 'hardcore' and like the games to be challenging. This game would have been great, except, it gave up too much info for me; which took away the fun!
Next time no info on hardcore , devs!!

A good game
The graphics and sound are very good and enjoyable, especially the scene on the cliff. The story is developed in somewhat unexpected way and has a satisfactory ending. The puzzles and HO scenes are not difficult.
The only problem I encountered is the hint. When I got stuck at one step, the hint only told me "there is nothing to do here" at every scene. But I rarely need the hint, it is not a big problem for me.

This game is a lot of fun! My wife and I finished it in under 4 hours on expert mode.
I really enjoyed the storyline with it. The graphics are great, and the puzzles are challenging. My wife has her strengths and I have mine, and we were both happy with the different puzzles laced throughout this game.
We found the map to be pointless, except being able to move from one location to another. Other than that, it really didn't seem to have a purpose.

I quite liked this one. great graphics especially the water and the clouds. The storyline was a bit odd and the ending a bit hokey but it had a ton to do and lots of beautiful locations. No extras (morphing objects, achievements) but for a SE offering it was long. It was one of those games where everything is either missing a piece or locked. Kind of an old school style but you went from docks, to clockmakers shops, to swamps to pirate ships. Very well done, suprisingly entertaining. Was a good in between game. I enjoyed it.
