Mysteries of the Past: Shadow of the Daemon is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Game. I've had this game for over a year and just played it. At first, I thought it was going to be bad - based on the graphics and beginning story. But as I kept playing, it surprised me. Great use of your free game coupon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a terrific game I'm always on the lookout for quality standard editions on which to spend my coupons 'cause I mostly buy CEs. This is one great game. Storyline is familiar, people lost, must find, evil lurking, but it's played out nicely. And I gotta tell you, the last scene had my heart pumping (lol) very intense battle with the demon. The hint system is very good and combined with the map it really helps to keep you on course. I mention this because BFG has no walkthrough. There is one on the net, but you probably won't need it unless you are really new at these types of game. Thanks for a great SE BF! Keep them coming. I've got more coupons than I can use. Wish you'd allow us to use two coupons or even three to purchase an CE game. That would be terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great to have a new studio in the neighborhood. I enjoyed this game thoroughly. Both visuals and audio are perfectly pleasant, there's nothing intrusive. The mini-games are well balanced and fun - and to my surprise not repetitive. Locations are interesting. It all looks quite scary in it's own “abandoned“ way, which I enjoyed very much. The voice acting is excellent and I especially love the idea of switchable main character. Story line was catching and it really kept me in till the end. I would sure like to see this not as Platinum but as a Collector's Edition. I also love the fact that such a large piece is produced by a totally new studio and not by any of the already known big game houses. Brings some fresh air to the scene. I believe this to be a good sign for us as players since there is still potential for new ideas. For me - this is a big thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Game by Blue Brain What a fun game! I love discovering a new developer and Blue Brains is it. There is just enough suspense to make me jump every once in a while. Most of the HO scenes are 2 stage play and a couple 3 stage thrown in for a pleasurable experience. The graphics and sound add to the great story line. You've got to play this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Supernatural Mystery and Missing Person Case in One !!! Many cultures from around the world believe that there are evil spirits out there doing bad things, and they sometimes interact with people as well. In some cases, they can even take possession of their victim’s body and force them to do their bidding. Naturally, there are always ways to stop these demons from getting too close, as well as rituals to banish them. Mysteries of the Past: Shadow of the Daemon is a hidden object adventure game in which you have to investigate a missing persons case and figure out what happened before it’s too late to rescue the victims. The gameplay is more or less standard for the genre, which means that you have to pick up useful objects, try to solve puzzles and generally enjoy the ride and the story. Speaking of which, it all starts when a father and his son go missing on their holiday trip somewhere around a remote mountain chalet. Your role is that of a detective trying to figure out what happened to them, by retracing their last known steps. As it turns out, paranormal forces are at play, which means that you’ll have to deal with ghosts and various other vicious spirits. The adventure has Good graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. In case you are already familiar with the HOG genre, you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out what to do here. Each scene contains a few active regions that can be examined closer, and each region may contain either a puzzle or a useful object that may come in handy later on. Some of these objects can be combined to obtain something else, while others are just there to help you open doors or containers. As usual, the graphics are hand drawn in most parts, which means that you do not need a very powerful computer in order to run the game smoothly. Each scene is very detailed and full of interesting objects you can examine, and the paranormal elements are quite well designed as well. In addition, there’s a creepy soundtrack playing in the background to keep you on edge at all times. Demo this one for yourself, you may end up purchasing and playing the game in its entirety. I recommend this for players of all levels. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FIND THE MILLERS REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Its a new developer with more games to come under a different name. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Normal and Expert modes; * Diary; * Medallion to use. The graphics are good - not too bright and are well defined. Its easy to see everywhere and to find items you need. Sound is good. The music is orchestral, drums and piano. Its not too loud or overpowering and I had it on the whole time. There are a great variety of interactive hidden object games. Some are finding pairs, straightforward and finding items and putting them back in their right place. I really enjoyed doing these. There are not too many of them and I found the challenge excellent. The mini-games are varied, with different degrees of challenge. A few took me ages with getting things in the right order. None of these are frustratingly annoying or too hard but at the same time the challenge is there to keep even the experts happy. The mini-game at the end took me a long time to conquer. You will need speed and accuracy for this one. There is a fair bit of reading to do in the diary which tells you of the story's history and what to do next. This doesn't take long and I didn't mind reading it at all. There is a lot to do in this game, which I believe is a full on adventure. All up the game took me a good 7 hours playing on Expert mode which has the Hint and Skip turned off. Just make sure at the beginning of the game which mode you want to play because you cannot change it once you've started. Overall, a great game to play and definitely worth having a look. I'm going to be keeping an eye out for this developer in the future. They've got talent and can't wait to see what they come out with next. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I REALLY LIKE THIS GAME!! I just finished the demo on this game and really enjoyed myself. I liked the story, graphics, old man's character (manager), atmosphere, and game play. The HOS aren't hard, but relaxing and enjoyable. Plus are completed in 2-3 formats, which added to the fun of them without straining your eyes or frustration. I'm anxious to find out how it continues. So, with the great sale by BFG I'm off to buy the game and find out. Happy Gaming Everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I loved playing this game, you don't have a walk through, but don't let that put you off, you do have a interactive map, which is great. The story is brilliant, and the HOS are not usual, you have to find objects, but then you have to put them back in place again. And you have to find a boy and his father who have been imprisoned by a demon, and each time you have completed every thing for that part of the game, it loads up another section. The graphics are brilliant as well
