Spirits of Mystery: Illusions Collector's Edition is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Game I really Love this Fantasy Game and this sequel, nice graphic, nice story line. I know it is not everyones cup of tea, but sure it's mine cup of tea. I like to dive into fantasy games and to forget the world around me. Wouldn't it be nice, to be a princess? Thank you very much, so happy to play it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time to save your Kindgom This was a really an enjoyable game to play, love collecting puzzle pieces, Finding the morphing was easy. I liked the option of choosing hard or easy in the mini games.. The only time there is talking is when you rescue the victims, I loved the sound effects. The only thing I did not like about it, it was a bit short. But as a whole, I loved the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN YOU FULFILL THE PROPHECY AND DEFEAT MORTIS? Queen Mortis is on a rampage and must capture you, the Princess of the Fire Kingdom, so that she can take back what she believes is “hers’ and become the ultimate ruler over all the kingdoms. Of course, to accomplish her goal she requires the help of the mage Isa who is under a spell with no will except to serve his queen. Now it is up to you, princess, to save your kingdom. As your first task “Nanny” says you must go to the Shield Shrine and activate the Magic Shield that will protect your kingdom. Nanny gives you a sealed case containing a Magic Bow and a note from your deceased father telling you that it now belongs to you. With Magic Bow in hand you activate the shield. You soon learn that you are the one who will fulfill an ancient prophecy to defeat evil and restore the kingdoms. As you move out of the palace you are confronted by an illusion monster that unknowingly opens a portal that captures Nanny. Now your adventure begins in earnest as you must save Nanny as well as your kingdom. As always, the graphics in ERS games are excellent. I love the Spirits of Mystery series because the games are generally full of beautiful scenes even though at times they may seem a bit dark. I’m a huge fan of hand-drawn artwork rather than the newer, highly polished computer graphics that we see so much of now. The characters created by this artistic team are the best and seem to come to life as I play their games. In Spirits of Mystery: Illusions your tools include a transporter type map as well as a Magic Bow. Of course you do have another gimmick – a Magic Mirror that will help you dispel Queen Mortis’ illusions. The Magic Mirror is a gimmick that I happen to like and isn’t one that annoys me. The HOP scenes are nothing new as they are basically the developers spin on the ones that BFG determines should be in all HOPA games. Then there are the puzzles that are basically the same in all games from the ERS team. In the demo they were very easy but, that being said, I always enjoy their puzzles except for some of the toggle type. In my experience the puzzles do become more difficult as the game progresses. The CE version of the game includes morphing objects and collectible puzzle pieces that are hidden in each scene. There are achievements to earn as well as the standard extras including a strategy guide and bonus game. IMHO, this is a great CE package as it has far more extras than those normally found in games from this developer. The Spirits of Mystery series has become one of my favorites over the years and I own every CE game in the series. I have almost always enjoyed the storylines and find this new one intriguing. Even though the puzzles are not difficult I do enjoy them as well as the HOP scenes. The standard list type HOPS have always been the ones I enjoy the most and they are what attracted me to HOPA games years ago. I know many gamers who have been playing HOPA games for years might not enjoy the game as much as me because they are perhaps a bit tired of what they think is the same old thing. There really does become a point in time were many series become stale and for some Spirits of Mystery might be one of those series. However, for me it is a series I still enjoy and Spirits of Mystery: Illusions is an instant buy for me. Even though I know this is a game I will love, please try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ERS Did a Great Job With this Game! I'm usually not an ERS fan, but this game is changing my view and giving me hope! FYI...I only played a few scenes....as a reference for my review. The collectibles make this game a purchase, for me.I'm always a fan of a good morphing object...and this game has 32 of them! The only negative being that they object the item morphs into is the same in each scene, and colorful. So...once it morphs, it does stand out as the MO. The puzzle pieces are well done, too. I didn't get very far into the story line, but so far it seems to work. The graphics are a bit blurry, IMHO...but must be how the Devs intended. Technology is too far advanced for it to be otherwise. As always, try the demo for yourslf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spirits of Mystery returns ti its past glory When this saga first began to unfold a few years ago, the initial couple of games were a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately said air became stale with subsequent installments and this series like so many others suffered possibly due to oversaturation. I am pleased to report that Illusions has returned S of M to the glory stage. The premise is one used way too often, In this case the evil queen Mortis has captured princesses and by abducting the Fire Princess ( that's us ) she will succeed in becoming an all powerful being. Mortis is presumably assisted by Isa who must be part cat himself as well as being accompanied by his panther since Isa never gets beaten down for long. At the end of this demo Isa apparently turns on Mortis to pursue his own nefarious intentions. So much for the story line. As to the Illusions themselves they are creatures which when subdues become human. These folks must then have certain objects returned to them so that they can provide items which are vital to the Fire Princess in her adventure. I liked the chain removal task while avoiding contact with floating things to defeat the creatures. It is a clever devise not often seen in games. Illusions includes lots of gatherings in order to assemble other items and the player needs a good pair of shoes as there is lots of to and fro required to complete the tasks. The hidden object segments are nothing special, they include traditional word lists, silhouettes, etc. One of the puzzles demanding the proper placement of cubes on a pictured grid is clever. The collectible lovers have jigsaw pieces and a triangular item to find. While the game really breaks no new ground in the HOPA world the use of not often used devices makes this installment of S of M a cut above what we have been given thus far in 2017.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spirits of Mystery Returns....... This is on the Demo only: I really like this game. It is fairly easy, I played on casual., but I like it. I like the colors, the familiar characters, the Princess having to be the one to save every one and her kingdom. I think you have to try it for yourself. If you're looking for a big challenge, maybe try it at a harder lever, but it doesn't seem to me that this one would be to hard at any level. Sometimes it's just nice to play an easy fun game. I like what I've seen so far and will buy it when it goes on sale!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FOUR PRINCESSES NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE RITUAL IN THIS FLASHY MAGICAL ILLUSION This one is pretty good, but not my favorite, as I am not into the magic stuff. The demo was fun and kept me busy the whole time. Still there was really no background given about the fire princess, the last one needed for an evil doer to complete her ritual to own the world. The visuals were pretty good. I'm not into using a prop to find things, in this case, a mirror to scroll over the picture and find 6 glowing skulls. It seemed a little campy to me and not challenging enough. The storyline was pretty good. There should be a little more background given, and perhaps a little more to keep you wanting to know how it ends. It was a little predictable that way. I do recommend the game. Thank you, Mia :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FULFILLING THE PROPHECY...........AGAIN The Fire Kingdom is the only Kingdom remaining. All other Kingdoms have been systematically destroyed by the Cursed Princess, as she emphatically pursues her quest to take back what she believes is rightfully hers. The Cursed Princess has proclaimed herself Queen Mortis, a mistress of Illusion, a master of evil deception, and she'll stop at nothing to obtain the final Princess of Fire. (that's you!) The Princess of Fire has evoked protection from the Spirits of Mystery, to protect the Kingdom, but does little to protect her when she's forced to enter a portal to the Metal Kingdom, to save her beloved Nanny from the evil clutches of Queen Mortis herself. Can the Princess of Fire expel the Cursed Princess forever, and put an end to the war that's been raging for over 500 years? There's something different about this Spirits of Mystery game, something's just a bit "off" I'm not sure what it is, perhaps the storyline is just stale, it seems as though we've had the battle of good Princesses against evil Princesses for over 500 years ourselves. Perhaps the graphics threw me off, they haven't improved either. More than likely, it's because Spirits of Mystery has become far too gimmicky. Supposedly the Prophecy tells of a Princess, armed only with a Bow, will expel the Cursed Princess forever. But the Prophecy didn't mention she would also have a Magic Mirror! I don't understand why ERS feels the need to include this "Mirror" in every series. You know the one, the one you have to use to "catch" the evil entities to dispel the curse, but you can only see them through the mirror a.k.a Orb Catcher. There is a Morphing Object in almost every scene, but you can only collect it when it's in the shape of a bright red triangle emblem, which makes it difficult not to spot. Most of the scenes also have a collectible Jigsaw Puzzle Piece, some of which are available in the scene itself, some are within a zoomed in zone. Once you have collected all 6 puzzle pieces, you can assemble the super easy puzzle and use it for a screensaver. (there are 6 different puzzle screensavers, each containing 6 pieces) The Hidden Object Scenes are varied each time, and in true ERS form, some scenes are repeated in the same area, a feature I find very boring the second time around. There are Keywords to find during a story, Multiples of the same item finds, Silhouetted Shape finds and Interactive List finds. The Mini Games are quite easy for the most part, some of them are impossible not to solve, because they light up in neon green. Below are brief descriptions of some of the Mini Games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Hit all 3 targets with your family Bow and Arrow (hard to miss targets) 2) Turn disc sections until they click into the correct position, using directional arrows. (again, all you have to do is click an arrow all pieces fall into place and turn green) 3) Move a tile to an empty place to slide square tiles to complete the image. The second half of the puzzle requires you to flip over all tiles, clicking one tile may affect others. 4) Use your magic mirror to find 6 evil illusions. This mini game is played every time you come across a human who has been cursed by the Queen's illusion. 5) After finding all 6 illusions, the mirror shows you a chain that you must trace its path without being hit by a floating orb. 6) After tracing the chain, you must then find that persons most treasured items, which are highlighted on or around them, and return them. 7) Use directional arrows to find the constellations shown in the inventory bar. 8) Move the lines so they don't cross over each other by moving connectors to an empty slot. 9) Place tiles on the board based upon their symbols, all tiles must be used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from TIME TO DEFEAT THE QUEEN AND TO PUT THIS PRINCESS AND THE GAME SERIES TO BED OVERVIEW: Princess – You are the last person standing to save the Kingdom from the clutches of Queen Mortis! As the Fire Princess, you have a tall order to fill including saving the other princesses from their imprisonment under this ruthless monarch. You are good stead, however. Prophecy has already predicted that you as the champion in this conquest, equipped only with a bow and quiver. In this game, your nanny is captured by a beast and you are off to get her back. You will fight off monsters which are illusions created by the dastardly queen. Underneath those monsters, you will discover some common folk who will help you in your fight. This is a great game for fantasy game lovers, those who like easy breezy games, those who are aspiring pretty-in-pink princesses, and children. The story is a continuation of this series, which to me, needs to end. How many more battles can our princess fight before losing her “pretty-in-pink” princess looks? The series is becoming stale. The graphics are beautiful as usual for ERS. They have the most beautiful graphics of all the developers. If I wanted a portrait painted, I would contact the ERS graphic artist! You collect jigsaw puzzles and morphing objects. You get a gimmicky illusion mirror which helps destroy illusion magic. Much of the game is like the last seven (7) games in this series. HOP SCENES: They are varied and exactly like the ones from previous games. They include the usual storybook scenes in search of items in BOLD letters. Others include silhouette and lists of items. Nothing exceptional within these scenes. PUZZLES: All the puzzles are easy. To use the gimmicky illusion mirror, first you use the mirror to find those hidden symbols then you trace a series of chains. Other puzzles include a rotating rings puzzle, moving tiles puzzle, and a rope puzzle, LEVELS: Princess, Heiress, Queen, Brave Lady Hints and Skips: 5 to 200 seconds EXTRAS: Map is given to you at the beginning of the game. Replay 15 Puzzles and 22 HOP scenes 14/15? Achievements (Some have 3 parts) Collect 36 jigsaw pieces for 6 puzzles Illusion mirror to destroy illusion magic. (Must be charged each time it is to be used) Morphing objects - look like shields 13 Wallpapers, 23 Concept Art, 6 Screensavers, Music, HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE HOP SCENES: A.
