Mystery of the Ancients: Mud Water Creek 4.1 5 13 13
Awesome Game Play!! I really enjoyed the game play.I liked how it played out. I can say. The game was not too hard,but made you think. It was more of an adventure than HOG, which is what i like. The only issue for me,was the story. I personally like more crime solving games over witches and demons. But it was the best game i enjoyed in some time. May 15, 2016
Excellent game This is among one of the best games ive played in a while, even thou its a SE its still a really well put together game and the scenes are beautifully done. Would defo recommend this game, I played it for hours and hours and could even go back and start it again...cant say that about many games ive played! May 26, 2016
Fun game Good interface, challenging but not too difficult. June 15, 2016
Fun Game Fun Game, easy interaction. Hidden objects require finding and matching - like that June 26, 2016
Really fun game! Loved the story line and thought the mini challenges were fresh and different. Worth every penny! May 20, 2016
This was a really fun game I really enjoyed this game and wanted to go on forever. May 30, 2016
THE PRICE IS RIGHT FOR ARLENE It's been several years since Bob Price proposed to his girlfriend Arlene who felt the need to consult the spirits to give her guidance before giving him an answer. Bob never saw or heard from Arlene again, so popping the question to Sarah wasn't an easy thing for Bob to do. Bob wanted everything perfect this time, a romantic boat ride with Sarah to set the mood, and a little courage was all it took, (well that and an expensive necklace) Unlike Arlene, Sarah doesn't need spirits to consult to know she wants to spend the rest of her life as Mrs. Price. Unfortunately, Bob and Sarah's bliss doesn't last long because..................SHE'S BACK, and she's not happy! 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, within a specific number of moves. In the Collector's Edition, 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 also 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. The 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!

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 the 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. I purchased the CE and it was much better than I expected. The gameplay had some challenge for me and I did need to think about what to do since all things were not glaringly obvious. All in all, Mud Water Creek is a good game even though it may not one of the best this year. The one thing that put me off is artistic rendering of the scorned woman who is 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. May 13, 2016
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE WRATH OF A WOMAN SCORNED Arlene is torn between marrying Bob or continuing to study magic under the town psychic. She seems to have made the wrong choice, or maybe the choice was made for her. Years later, with Bob getting ready to marry Sarah, Arlene returns to take vengeance on everyone. You and your paranormal abilities are here to save the day. This is a good, strong HOG with great graphics and lots of variations in minigames and HOS. I played the demo at the easiest level, so there was an interactive map to move between locations as well as to see where within a location action needed to be taken. The 4 levels of difficulty, including a custom level, make it able for you to set up the game to be exactly how you want to play. My only complaint was it suffered a little with too much back and forth. For instance, you need a screwdriver in the basement of the house. You find it 3 or 4 scenes back at the dock. Too much of that ruins a game for me, but I only noticed it in the extreme this one time. Since there is a CE of this game, I will skip this SE for it. May 13, 2016
Fun easy going game I enjoyed this game although the storyline is getting a bit old. Actually a bit on the scary/freaky side in some cases. Voice-overs were OK and could get a bit annoying. I turned the music off like I always do. A lot of dialog which you can skip and it doesn't effect the progression of the game. Custom settings allows you to set the hint/skip to refresh very quickly so if you are not a puzzle player like me you can move along with the game. HOS were actually kind of inventive and different and I enjoyed them. Moving around through the different locations was fun although I did feel bad for the boatman at the end. The transporter map was a must as you move from one place to another quite a bit. I found the game to be quite smooth flowing considering all the moving around you do. The hint appears to be a transporter hint also. A lot of things to do as far as putting things together etc. which made the game fun. I got it on sale, but wouldn't feel scammed if I had paid full price. Nice length not too short or too long. July 11, 2016
