Time Mysteries: The Final Enigma
Review of full game
I got totally involved in this game from the beginning and just didn't want to stop playing.
I loved the time travel to different places...made it interesting. The scenes are beautiful and magic , mystery and Merlin are so up my street..lol.
The puzzles and Hos were not difficult but you did have to think about where you needed to go next which added to the challenge.
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would not hesitate to recommend.

Good game !
At first I was not sure, but then I remembered playing one of the sequels and that portal was very familiar....I loved it very much, Merlin, the puzzles and landscapes were fun...Portal is great, graphics beautiful, very relaxing.

Excellent game, played it all in one afternoon. Loved the storyline and all the mini games were enjoyable to play. May play it again sometime.

Loved this game. Travelling through time with a clever device and with a good story line. I had enjoyed The Ancient Sceptres and was really pleased to discover there was a follow up available.
Cannot wait for another time travel experience by my favourite game developers!
I highly recommend this game.

This game is fun
I played in casual mode. The game moved along well. The puzzles and HOSs were fair. On the HOS, you could toggle between the HOS and a match 3 game, so you get to choose whichever is more fun for you.
I especially liked the Portable Time Device which acted like a map. This feature saved me from having to drudge through each and every room in the game whenever I needed to search for an object. And when you find the object, it saves you from drudging through each and every room of the game in order to remember where you need to use it.
The length of the game was fine for me.

another great game in this series
I had such fun with this series I wish they would keep coming. the way you travel from place to place is great, unique and unusual. the story line is interesting, you save people and the place, the challenge level is perfect. this is based on the regular version, the travel is so easy I didn't need the Collectors and don't care about extras anyway. I don't use sound so can't rate that but I definitely recommend this game and the whole series.

Very recommendable SE!! :)
Even though I first wanted to wait for this SE, I couldn't wait and purchased the CE.
I loved the last ?Time Mysteries - The ancient Spectres?!! Great gameplay, fantastic graphics; similar to this one.
We have two modes to choose from, a helpful diary with tasklist. Hint is also useful outside HOS; showing you the direction where to go. And what I love most is the Portable Time Device, which is also a map; allowing you to travel back in time to change history by solving several puzzles which finally will rescue our world?
We find lots of HOS with interaction (can be switched into match-3) Very nice designed minigames, not too challenging.
It took me about 4 hours for the maingame in the 2nd mode.
But: Even though I love this game, I recommend this SE, as the bonus-content offered in the CE isn?t sufficient for me; There are no collectables/ achievements and the bonus-chapter is quite unnecessary!! Main game ends conclusively.

A Not-So-Final Finale
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Story: We were left hanging at the end of ?The Ancient Spectres?, with Esther Ambrose fighting off the evil witch Viviana, Merlin?s main squeeze back in the 5th Century ? before he became a tree. Now she must help her uncle and a mysterious man from the future finally stop the threat of Viviana?s evil influence for good. This means going back to the original confrontation between Merlin and Viviana, and an adventure across time and space.
Developer: Artifex Mundi
Release Date: Feb 2013
Extras: Portable Time Device (PTD), Toggle to Match 3 game.
Almost everything I said about ?The Ancient Spectres? remains true for this episode of the Time Mysteries series. The bright glary light still illuminates clear and beautiful objects. You have sonar and can toggle a Match 3 game in HOs, and the game leans towards HOs rather than PA.
The action continues to centre round the PTD. Which remains addictive. And this game?s story is also as hard to follow and, though ending conclusively this time, ultimately as unsatisfying.
Still, tripping across time and altering futures is irresistible fun, and it really is a beautiful game. And if I?m left feeling a bit ambivalent, I guess I was hoping for more out of this than it gave.
To those who?ve not played the other games, this one can stand alone, but just barely. It?s a lot more interesting if you?ve played the backstory.
And is Viviana Vivien? I?ll never tell!
