Mystery of the Ancients: Mud Water Creek Collector's Edition 4.2 5 45 45
THOSE MUDDY WATERS RUN DEEP When you play with fire, chances are you're gonna get burned. When Bob Price proposed to his girlfriend Arlene, she consulted the spirits to give her guidance, and she got burned. Bob never heard from Arlene again, until the day came that he proposed to Sarah. Bob presented Sarah with a necklace that has been in his family for generations, but unbeknownst to him, a portal to the underworld has been opened and lost souls are pouring through, including a scorned ex-fiance! The storyline is a bit cheesy, and certainly isn't a new plot, but the graphics are fantastic and the game is entertaining enough to overlook the "been there, done that" factor. You will receive an Amulet that seems to annoy the spirits more than anything else, and each time it's used, you will play a click and drag Match 3 type game where you make matches of each icon shown with specific amounts for each token. There are 25 Hidden Bats, which are rather large in size, and there are 9 Hidden Character Figurines that are hidden much better than the Bats. There are the usual Achievements to earn including an Achievement for answering a few easy questions about the game itself as you progress. The Hidden Object Scenes aren't bad, but not very creative in my opinion. Most are Multiple Finds, or Fragment Finds, but I did enjoy the Interactive List Find where you had to click on items that matched the list as the item were floating down a stream at a fairly fast clip. The Mini Games are very doable, some were way too easy, but most offer a good variety. The following are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Pull all rings open by selecting them in the correct order. 2) Arrange boards on a grid so that all boards fit without overlapping. 3) Find Objects shown at the bottom of each page in a storybook. 4) Rearrange the parts so each doll is in front of the appropriate scene. 5) Swap the tokens so each one is hanging from its matching pattern. This Collector's Edition has 6 Music Soundtracks, 18 Wallpapers, 24 Concept Art pictures, Videos, 9 Character Figurines, 25 Hidden Bats, Jigsaw Puzzle to assemble, Achievements, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Mystery of the Ancients 5 has a Brilliant story that deserves Editors Choice!!! I really loved this edition to Mystery of the Ancients. You are called in to test and investigate the house for some mysterious activity. A couple that is about to get married experience some ghostly presence in the house (who would want that added to all the pre-wedding chaos?). What you thought would be a simple check turns into a real challenge as you get deeper in the story. The ghost of an ex-girlfriend seems to be quite determined for revenge. As a supernatural specialist you are caught up in this love triangle. The graphics of the game and the voice overs are quite good. The colors and the light is just right - not too dark and with a lot of detail which I really appreciate. There is an AWESOME bonus game that turns into a trip in the underworld for you. The game is offered in four modes: Casual, Advanced, Expert, and Custom. The hints and skips are adjustable 1-90 seconds. A map and a strategy guide is provided to help you get about and get through some of the challenges if you need. You get a magic token that protects you from the evil power of the ex. There seems to be a well balence between the hidden object scenes and the game's puzzles. You need to solve a match-3 game throughout the game to defeat the power of the angry ghost. The hidden object scenes are presented with a great variety of searches. You get the multi-step ones, the story ones, the locate ones and other. Then you stumble upon different kinds of puzzles along the way. As for the collectibles, you are to find all the 9 statues and 25 bats. 18 achievements are another part of the extras, and they give you 21 jigsaw puzzle pieces to collect. And, of course, you get all the media extras to download and enjoy outside of the game (music, wallpaper, concept art, video). Long time fans of the series are in for a treat, if you aren't familiar with the series this is an excellent starting point. Here are more editions as I remember playing them. Enjoy! ?

WHAT ABOUT BOB? Poor Bob has his hands full. Arlene? Duh, she "dropped" him ten years ago as he says to new love Sarah. Well, something's not right and it's a whole lot of problems for everyone. Arlene is somehow back and spreading destruction. She's definitely angry with Bob! I'm sure he has a good reason for everything. Can't wait to hear this one! Creative puzzles, HOPS, and match puzzles to win battles over scary monsters. Well written with dashes of humor make for a pleasant gaming experience. Thank you MARIAGLORUM and BFG! Enjoy! -Mama Mia- April 14, 2016
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRY TO MOVE ON After your success solving several paranormal event cases you seem to have a great reputation so it comes as no surprise when you receive a letter from Bob Price asking for your help to find out why there are so many unusual things happening at his estate. It seems like Bob?s ex-love, Arlene, is not the least bit happy that he seems to have quickly forgotten about her and moved on to a new woman in his life. Things in Bob?s life are going from bad to worse as Arlene doesn?t understand why Bob has so quickly moved onto someone new and she is pitching a fit that would make a two-year old proud. Will you be able to step in and soothe this unhappy spirit and make things better for the inhabitants of Mud Water Creek. The game offers the custom mode of gameplay that I am happy to see more devs offering in their games. Although there are not too many settings to fiddle with, you can still set the hint and skip times as well as get rid of the dreaded tutorial. You have a map that you acquire early in the game as well as a special token that is provided by a mysterious benefactor. The token is what some call a gimmick as you must first play a mini-game each time you need to use it. The HOPS and the mini-games are very good and I found them to be quite enjoyable. Sometimes the HOPS were a bit different and fall into the category of a mini-HOP since you only need to find a certain number of a specific item to complete the scenes. The mini-games are not difficult but I had to fiddle a bit with the one to rebuild the bridge ? a puzzle I loved. The extras seem to be minimal since you really don?t get to view the entire strategy guide until you purchase the game. We have no idea of the length of the game since only two chapters are shown in what information is available. Unfortunately when this happens, I won?t purchase the game. IMHO, if a developer wants to sell me a game, let me see what they are offering me before I part with the full price for a CE. After playing the demo for the game, I did find it enjoyable but I am still a bit on the fence about the complete game. I dislike the artistic rendering of the scorned woman who is out for revenge who at times she reminds me of the misunderstood muse in another game we had last year. Even though I do like the HOPS and the mini-games, I might wait for the SE release of the game. To all of you who loved the previous Mysteries of the Ancients games, I hope this one will be just as terrific. As always, please try the demo to see if Mud Water Creek is a game you will enjoy.

Arlene the Ghost is having none of it! Bob offers Sarah a family heirloom necklace, as you do, while they're boating on the lake. This awakens the spirit of his ex, Arlene, and wow does she cause a lot of damage. She must REALLY want that necklace - or maybe she just wants Bob? (Can't blame her there - he's one of those muscly lumberjack types, even if he isn't the sharpest tool in the locked box.) Now it's your job to save Sarah, help Bob, and even get together with Arlene's old magic teacher to defeat the spirit. The back story unfolds via Arlene's magical diary, and you discover there's a lot more to this ex than anyone thought. Along the way you do some puzzles, including a HOS with a (spoiler alert) running stream of objects you have to click on to put a doll back together. I loved that puzzle, as well as the fat raccoon you have to feed in order to get some fuses. I felt a lot better when I fed that raccoon, after (another spoiler alert) scaring him with freaky monkey toy. The cutscenes are beautiful, and if you like horror along with your feels, go for this game. It's really well done. Did I mention the map? Beautifully drawn! Kudos, game developers! April 14, 2016
Wonderful scenery and gameplay I confess: i do love all the games of Mariaglorum. They have this authentic look and feel of towns in former times. It is such a pleasure to just look at all the details of the scenery that i sometimes really just stop playing and stare instead. I love these developers!!! And the story is so interesting one really wants to rescue all this doomed souls. The HOPs have a lot of variation, some quite astonishing. Play it, people, in fact there is nothing better out there!!! April 20, 2016
One of the best for a long time Have only played this game for awhile Found the mini games well thought out Sometimes if a game doesn't keep me interest I intend to leave it but this one has held my interest story line good sound and graphics are tops. looking forward to continue playing it. April 16, 2016
Excellent graphics and absorbing story! The graphics are not cartoon-like, they?re natural looking and sharp. Lots of real looking items and lots of detail. I love the garden in the woods and the real water and stream that features a few times!! I like to play a mix of games, and this is exactly what I needed to play. It?s FUN, and NOT created with realism in mind as far as the story goes. The story moves swiftly, the characters have charm. Good HOPS and puzzles, and I really liked the ?connecting shapes? game that occurs throughout. The game is definitely is on the lighter side of occult. April 24, 2016
Splendid, dreamy music & a content-rich gameplay A truly great game, that had so many scenes, one after the other, that I couldn't believe that its creators had such a blast and inspiration! A never-ending gameplay, and that's a good thing money- and commitment-wise. As for its music, really-really-really top! good job guyz April 23, 2016
Mud Water Creek is an underrated almost perfect game! Well, giving 3 or less stars to this game, is in my opinion, pure nonsense. When I play a game, I "devour" the game and I found only negligable bugs technically. The graphics are VERY good, even though I cruelly played it on a 27 inch 2560*1440 monitor, cutscenes, flow of the plot, the clever HOPs, funny additions into a fantastic-grim tale creating a very entertaining balance, sufficient extras and an unfortunately a very short yet interesting bonus game, makes this game worth buying. The voice-over acting is well over average, there are almost no load times, very clever ways to make the game be playable without boredom and the characters are finely created. So, I firmly suggest you buy this game... It really is a good one! May 7, 2016
