Artifex Mundi proudly presents Enigmatis: The Shadow of Karkhala, the final chapter in the blockbuster Enigmatis trilogy.

The demonic Preacher has escaped to the remotest reaches of Tibet in pursuit of a dark secret that could give him ultimate power. He first escaped the Detective and her partner, P.I. Richard Hamilton, in Maple Creek, and then again at Ravenwood Park. This time, it is personal.

After returning to Maple Creek and uncovering new evidence about the Preacher’s plan, the two detectives set out in search of a centuries-old monastery hidden high in the mountains of Tibet, where the immortal Preacher’s lifelong search for world domination could finally meet its end.

Drawn into this ancient struggle between the forces of light and darkness, the detectives must defeat the Preacher at any cost. But will they be able to catch him before it is too late? Will they even be able to stop him if they do, now that he is more powerful than ever? What secrets will they find in the shadows of Karkhala?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from enigmatis more like these please i have played two enigmatis games so far and have thoroughly enjoyed both. the shadow of Karkhala has numerous puzzles to solve and are different and a little more challenging than many games in this genre. more like this please

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just gets better and better! The sequels are just as good as the first and I always get so engrossed in the story! It never disappoints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of interaction This game has a lot more interactivity than we usually get. The other character seems to respond to my actions, as if I am talking to another person. Usually if an animated character is in the room it just ignores you. This character responded as if there were actually two of us in the room. How cool is that? There are lots of videos: at least at the beginning. I only played the trial version. It starts out with lots of action as you try to save your and your friend from a doomed aircraft. Definitely try this one out or buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality hidden object adventure Although I didn't enjoy this as much as the first Enigmatis, this is a very high-quality HO/Adventure game with excellent graphics, music and cutscenes and a good variety of gameplay types. The story is fairly straightforward and the locations are not all that varied, and some people may be put off by the mix of religious imagery, but otherwise, this game is worth your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! Loved everything about this game! There was a lot of interaction with other characters, more so than in other games, which I found fun and interesting. I've played so many HOGS so I appreciate when there is something new and different. Loved having music play throughout the game. Why don't all games have that? Otherwise you're just sitting there in silence. I don't really care about the level of challenge in a game (unless it's super hard or confusing). You can always use the hint or skip button. This game was a medium challenge for me. Overall, a fun game, worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Boring More games should be like this. Puzzles were worked seemlessly into the story/gameplay, which makes the game more exciting. I recently fell out of love with the "Dark Parables" series, due to the fact that they use the same kind of HO puzzles for every game—which needless to say gets pretty boring. I thought this was a great conclusion to the fight against the Preacher. Other pros: Beautiful artwork (seriously) I actually liked the voice actors for once Opening gameplay sequence was awesome Con: *Spoilers!!!* I thought the inclusion of the white, blond haired, Judeo-Christian angel was kind of odd/off-putting to me. Karkhala seemed like it was based off of Tibet (especially when you look at the architecture, and clothing, etc.), so I personally would've rather seen a spiritual figure that fit in with Karkhala's seemingly Eastern culture, rather than one from Western culture. Other than that… I have no cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on FULL gm + bonus play. Here are details after the demo... ********************May contain a spoiler******************* Standard Edition took me 5 hours Bonus play took 1 hour (I always play on custom mode and complete ALL hidden object scenes, and as many mini games as possible. I finished 19 of 22 mini games, which is huge for me, as I usually am not a huge fan of the mini games and prefer the HOS) TOTAL GAME PLAY: 6 HOURS I bought + played all three games in this trilogy from start to finish. I loved all of them. Enigmatis, Mists of Ravenwood was my favorite. All three of these games make use of game play in gorgeous locations. You aren't just rambling around an interior location you've seen a million times. There is not much fantasy in this game.... thank goodness. I have seen WAY to much fantasy this past year. You do see a winged "bird monster" (and in the 2nd edition, Mists of Ravenhood, there was an equally stupid flying monster-crow# but the bird ties in with this rather involved story and is the symbol of good, and Archangel Raphael. There is a part in the demo where you are looking down, and through, a crashed plane. It reminded me of the PS3 game Uncharted, where Drake hung from a bus. I was blown away how well this area was drawn and the perspective was perfect. Looking over a cliff down on rushing water will make you catch your breath as you watch a hawk fly UNDER you and realize how high up you are. GRAPHICS- Normally I can't stand hand drawn graphics and prefer the computer gen, due to clarity. But this game is like playing in an oil painting. The colors are bright, locations are gorgeous, and each new scene that came I would find myself "wowed" further. I absolutely LOVED how they kept the game gorgeous despite the fact the subject matter was dark. HOS, MGs and alternatives: The hidden object scenes are a mix. It has my favorite "list find" with 2 steppers. I did NOT notice and of the silhouette type --which I just can’t stand. The ALTERNATIVE TO HOS is MATCH GAME. Since the HOS are my FAVORITE part of a hidden object game, I only played it once to see what it was like. It was SO much better then match 3.... too bad it wasn't an alternative to the mini games, which I am not always so fond of. CHARACTERS: These characters are so perfect they need their own title head. The same voice overs are back from the other games in this series and are some of the best I have ever heard. They speak from where they ARE within the scene. It made the game seem more real for me. MY FAVORITE PARTS IN GAME: I loved this demo, so chapter 1 and --standard for me--Chapter 3. I am a major Tomb Raider fan, and chap 3 reminded me of "Lara land". You play in mountainous locations; outside, and in the woods some. By chapter 4 you are in a snowy region and the game turns darker. I don't like playing through snow and rain as it messes with the graphics for me. Even though the game is darker here, you are NOT in some “weirdly aqua world” which was a huge plus. Chapter 5 has a great mini game. It is page 52 of the strategy guide. It is super fun. You need to prepare and powder color several shades of Jade and paint an artifact with them. Chapter 5 also had a terrific mini game across several locations using a metal detector to find objects. It was so super fun. NO DIARY: Evidence board instead. If I EVER saw a more convoluted storyline in a game in need of a notebook, it was this one. The evidence board did not really refresh the story than it did further the game. Occasionally you find a random notebook lying around that does explain the story a pinch more. BONUS PLAY: The final chapter was kind of a bummer for me. You play 9 areas. 6 of the 9 are revised from the final chapters of the SE. The 3 new areas are very pretty though so I am glad I got the CE. They include a cave which was a gorgeous room, a secret chapel & a narrow path. I REALLY loved this series and will probably replay the second Enigmatis so I can play the bonus since I'd only purchased the SE for that edition and wished I'd got the CE. There are 4 HOS in bonus play and 6 mini games. There is NO MAP in bonus and NO MORE COLLECTIBLES in bonus play. Though you still have that useless task book...geez I can't stand those task books. The storyline in bonus play happens in the period just before, and overlaps a pinch of when the timing of the demo starts. It has an awesome initial cut scene where I'm talking to Jenny. My character is BB #Britney#. Fang's father and Fang are in bonus too. TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA HOW LONG BONUS IS: Chap 1 is 11 pages, Chap 2 is 5pgs, Chap 3 is 11pgs, Chap 4 is 13pg, Chap 5 is 12p, Chap 6 is 4pgs, & bonus is 11pgs. CE GOODIES: 9 DL music tracks 12 concept art which is only viewable, not DL. Replay 8 beautifully done cut scenes, There is an in- game strategy guide and bonus play took me about an hour. The ending of the Standard Edition is really powerful. You see Archangel Raphael, and a fight between good and evil. IF YOU LIKED THIS GAME: You will probably like: Mystery Tales, Her own eyes Whispered Secrets, Ever burning candle Grim Tales, The Wishes Also try Haunted Hotel, Charles Dexter Ward --an older game, maybe without a map, but a must see. I want to thank Big Fish Games and Artifex Mundi. This game is like playing in a gorgeous oil painting. It was perfectly done. You gave me hours of happiness and I'll be sure to play this one again!! Please give me a screen saver next CE. If you make them, I’ll keep buying them--I have just shy of 400 games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exciting and interesting way to play detective! After completion of demo: Although I have the previous two Enigmatis games, I haven't played them yet. But after playing the demo, I purchased this game right away (this game I can't wait to finish, just to see what happens). This game offers: An exciting storyline Fun and not so hard mini-games/puzzles Great voiceovers and good interaction between both detectives An interesting way to gather evidence by use of a cell phone, thereby letting you pretend you're 'Columbo', 'Perry Mason', or even 'Scooby-Doo' :) Try the demo. It just might surprise you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Interactive Concept - Enigmatis 3 Wow, refreshing! Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala really stands out from the rest. This game includes you in the adventure - like you are truly in the story WITH them. You must interact, real time, in order to escape/survive. The story waits for your decision. I have not seen this specific type of HOG game before. THANK YOU BIG FISH!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Did I Miss all the Other Games This is posted after playing the entire game. Seems here lately all I have been posting have been negative reviews. Not this time. I really enjoyed this game! I can't imagine missing the previous ones in this series, if they are like this one. Going to have to look those up. Even though I am so tired of the supernatural themes of the games lately, This was an exception. The graphics were exceptional as was the sound, especially the voice overs. Music went along with the action in the scene and wasn't irritating. Colors were bright and pretty much realistic. Although the mini games were my downfall as usual, I have to admit the hidden objects were as much of a challenge. I did have to use the hint more than normal on them. Hidden objects were varied which kept my interest and while the mini games were well past my patience level and understanding, I was able to complete several of them. That's amazing for me. There is an interactive map which transports and shows where there are things to be done. With a story line like this, the map was a must. There are the usual settling for difficulty, from which I chose the custom so I could set the hint and skip at the lowest setting. The story, even though it was in the supernatural theme, was interesting. The continuity was all the way through the game and I didn't have to wonder what was going on. It's a pretty long game and sometimes the story will get lost in those extended games, but not in this case. I won't go into the story itself. Big Fish and other reviewers do a much better job than I, but I will tell you it had me from the beginning and kept my attention until the very end. Be sure to try the demo, and I'm pretty sure you will find this to be above and beyond your average game.
