Hidden Mysteries - Civil War 2.4 5 21 21
Not my favourite game My problem with this game was the size of the Hidden Objects. Some are so tiny and indistinct that even when using the hint facility I had trouble clicking on them. The hint button is very limited compared to some games and to get more one has to play a version of 'minefield' which I absolutely hate. I have played others in this series but definitely not this one!!!!! December 17, 2011
Not for iPad The game is only set up for iPhone, not iPad, so if you blew it up to fit, the rez was so poor it was difficult to see the objects clearly. The encoded messages kept leaving out one of the letters and it wouldn't clear away without the last letter. So you had to back out of the game, restart, and decode a new letter. I had to do that 3 times for one letter before it would finish. And you rewrote history? Seriously? November 15, 2011
Very poor HO game I wanted to like this game, but frustration with the HO screens made it impossible to enjoy. As other reviewers have noted, some of the HO were so tiny and indistinct that they were impossible to find. Due to technical glitches, I was unable to complete the game, but I was more than halfway through the game at that point so I feel that I can provide an accurate review. (Big Fish quickly refunded my purchase price BTW.) I would like to see other historical HO and puzzle games, but this is not the one to play. December 28, 2011
Purchase Regretted Wish I had not bought it. Enjoy reading the stuff about the Civil War, but the hidden objects are, well, too hidden. Still seeking a mushroom in the 1863 Battle of Chattanooga after a week of searching. Buy a good magnifying glass with this purchase as you will need it. Had I read the reviews 1st would not have bought it. October 16, 2012
Not for those who don't have a magnifier This game would be much improved by slightly larger objects, better game help, and rechargeable hints within a level and a scene. It is frustrating playing the timed version when the timer keeps going during the minesweep game (for earning additional hints). October 11, 2012
not for any genre played it on computer screen, some objects so tiny and resolution so poor that could not be made out at all. some were visible but did not respond when clicked. hints so faint and quick that half the time didn't get a chance to see where they were on the screen. Impossible in casual mode, can't imagine playing in timed mode. Don't bother with this one November 18, 2011
Avoid this one. As a Civil War buff, I was excited to buy and play this game. What a disappointment! This thoroughly horrible HOG game allows only 3 hints which can be used across multiple HO scenes. If you need to use them all on the first or second HOS, you can ?buy? another by winning a game of minesweep. Really? I am not about to do that. I used two hints on one item and still clicked and clicked for maybe 30 clicks to ?find? it. I quit and erased the game after the second HOS. Looking for one last item I clicked until my hand cramped. I don?t think that item is even there. Worse, they were too embarrassed to provide a walk-through. This game was worse than being forced to watch an hour of political ads. I only gave this game one star because I could not figure out how to give it zero. The good news is that Game Mill has two excellent HOG games that one would want to buy. March 3, 2012
awful game I thought I had all the letters in place but could never get past the decoding, the hints aren't any use and there's no walkthrough. I hate buying a game that I can't even play. August 3, 2012
The objects are very small, some you can hardly find even with a hint and some items will not even be clickable. Save your money on this game. Nearly Impossible to Play Game August 13, 2014
There's no game in this game The Civil War should provide the basis for an exciting, challenging game, but this looks like a high school history teacher's idea of an educational game. There is a lot of reading of facts relevant to the different locations of the Civil War, which is frankly boring. The graphics are quite nice, but the hidden objects are simply random. And they are so tiny that even with hints they were sometimes impossible to see -- I just clicked in the general area and that waited to see what disappeared from the list. The puzzles are adequate, but nothing terribly challenging. The only "story" is the story of the Civil War. We don't follow a specific character or campaign or battle; we don't interact with characters. It's just move from one location to another and read about it. My husband, who is a Civil War buff, looked over my shoulder and complemented the graphics. When I told him what it was about, he asked if I were hunting in the field for bullets and rifles and stuff. Now THAT would have made a good game. June 27, 2013
