Charming and fun story
I am writing this view because this is a DD today & was surprised it only had one review, because I remember this game fondly. I don't want anyone to dismiss this game because of one mildly discouraging review -- and keep in mind the reviewer's experience was disappointing due, in part, to a technical issue.
I remember this game as delightfully comic with some surprising twists that are very entertaining. I really liked the characters and the visuals -- Oh, And the overall game itself.
I think it's a great deal for a DD!
Please give the sample download a try. I think you might be pleasantly surprised.

Get's my 2012 Unique award so far!
Had to figure out what was really going on here, because there is a lot.But when you have control, what fun it is. Animation, graphics, background voices and music are #1 in themselves. Then you get to the actual HOG scenes and there is a lot to find This game makes me extra glad I have a large computer screen so it can be all taken in. Look forward to it's sister game next.

I loved this game! It was hard enough to be engaging and had a cute storyline. I also liked the ghosts popping out of nowhere to scare you.

Fun, fun, fun
The most fun I have had playing a game in a long time. Scenes are quick to get up and scan main scene to get full view for HOs. Some items are vertually impossible to find, but there are also ghosts to capture and at least 3 other places to do HOs within the main scene. A ghost per mini HO to capture. Also a riddle to solve that can only be worked out with all the clues gathered. This game kept me on my toes and also kept me at my computer until I had finished as I wanted to know what came next. Once a main area is finished, you compete in a series of mini games with the subject of the main ghost and earn trohies. Great fun.
I highly recommend this game to anyone, like me, who wants a challenge and is tired of the normal ghost/spooky house games. The characters are wonderful, graphics are not always clear, but the details are extraordinary.
Play this one before Mishap 2 and you will understand the characters etc better.
All in all, I hope for a Mishap 3. Am playing this one again as I enjoyed it so much. Definite value for money and hours of fun.

Love, Love, Love this game!
This is such a cute game. I love it! Some of the items are tiny, but you can find them, don't worry. The story is really sweet in the long run. Even the "bad characters" aren't bad, just misunderstood! lol I recommend this game highly. I will be playing it again and again!!

Very nice game
I missed this one on the original release, but I'm glad I caught the daily deal!
The graphics are very good, cartoon-style. A couple of the cutscenes are older 3D animation, which never looks great in my opinion. Others had a static comic-book style, where you could wait for the voice over, or just click to light up the next panel. I always skip cutscenes and voice overs, so I can't review the voice acting.
There are a ton of hidden object scenes, with a lot of objects in each one. They were tricky too; not unfair, hide a matchstick under a broom tricky, but finally find it and say "how did I miss that??" tricky. Each chapter has one huge main scene you can scroll sideways through, with 3 doorways into linked scenes that don't scroll. There is not a lot of adventure-type running back and forth, which I liked, and no annoying tasks that can only be done with a ridiculously specific item. You do collect objects, but they are combined into a machine behind the scenes and used at the end of the chapter. You also have to do a hot-and-cold seek game in each scene to catch ghosts, and each chapter has a rebus riddle that tells you to do a small task. The only real challenge of the riddles is to find the area where the task is held; sometimes the riddle gives a clue, other times you have to just hunt until the cursor changes.
There are eight mini-games, one at the end of each chapter. They are interesting, and a few I really liked (card game!). You're using the contraptions to help the ghosts with their unfinished business, whatever it happens to be. Most were arcade-style and involved some speedy mouse-work, which is a little harder with a trackball, but I was able to do just fine. One mini-game had a loading lag time that made it difficult to play; I just skipped that one.
There is a lot of story, including a mini-story for every ghost, but I liked that nearly all of that was completely optional - it was stored in a separate log area and you had to choose to open it. So when a little way in I figured out the "twist ending", I could skip the rest of the details and diary entries and just play. Maybe next time I will read all the macabre little death stories; maybe not.
Best of all, as mentioned above, there are 8 full chapters in the game, and it was an excellent length. I kept getting interrupted, so my very vague estimate is about 4 hours; and I'm a fast player. A very nice game and an excellent value!

A very fun game!
This game is bright, colorful, and a lot of fun. The HOS, while cartoon-like, are sophisticated and well drawn. The story line is fun and interesting and the Chapters are complex and deep and will prove challenging to the more experienced player while still playable for the "newbies."

This is an absolutely outstanding Hidden Object Game. True to the original type. No big adventure, no chasing a map, no trying to figure out where to go or what to use in what area. Just plain old search and find with a small story to go along with it. The games within the HOP are also very well done and challenging. This is a must have if you like HOG without everything else.
