Time Mysteries: The Final Enigma
Game was Fun, but on the Short Side
Details after playing the completed game:
-2 Difficulty Modes: Normal and Expert.
-Diary can be found on the bottom left portion of the screen.
*Diary contains both Notes and Objectives for the game.
-The PTD (Portable Time Device) takes place of the map.
-Inventory bar does not lock.
-The game did fill my 19? monitor screen.
-Hint button can be used for both HOS and game play. Hint button takes about 40 seconds to reload in Expert mode. Hints are also available through the PTD (Portable Time Device), where a red exclamation point shows the locations of points of interest.
-Most of the HOS are interactive and in junkpile form. There are about 10 original HOS. Each HOS was visited twice and the objects are random per game (you don?t get the same objects to find over and over again even if the game is replayed).
*There is no misclick penalty.
*You have a choice of playing a HOS or a Match 3 style game and you are able to toggle back and forth if you want.
-Puzzles can be skipped. It took about 1 minute 50 seconds to skip in Expert mode.
*There are about 20 puzzles to complete.
-There are many cut scenes throughout the game, but these can be skipped. Some of these can be startling (such as bats flying at you).
Genre: Science Fiction/Mystical
Game length: I consider myself a slow to medium paced player, so it took me almost 3 hours 40 minutes to complete the game.
My opinions about the game:
*I played in Expert mode and there were sparkles for the HOS *only*.
*Graphics were about average.
*Music was repetitive.
*Good ratio between HOS/Adventure; about 50/50.
*Most of the puzzles were pretty easy to play.
*Game length is on the short side.

Instructions not included-----
I do wish this game had a little smaller type for I.D. of inventory items, I got quite annoyed when I would try to pickup an item from inventory & the title of item would be in the way, or I just couldn't pick it up.
The time travel is fun but towards the end of game, there is just too much coming and going for one item only, and I found myself having to use the 'hint' button for instructions on the mini-games. Also I had to rely on the time machine as to where to go to continue the storyline.
All-in-all, a fun game to play, maybe once or twice.

loved ancient spectors because it was fun and challenging. really looked forward to the next one, but does not compare. too easy and too short. finished in less than 2 hours.
