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?

Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Conclusion to the Enigmatis Trilogy! Artifex Mundi has never failed to create amazing HOPA Games, and this one is no exception! "Enigmatis 3: The Shadow of Karkhala Collector's Edition" is a wonderful conclusion to the Enigmatis Trilogy. The game picks up where the last one left off, you are now in a plane with Rick and all of a sudden it starts going haywire! You fly out of your seat and you are about to fly out the window, you have to make your way inside and fix the plane quickly so you don't crash-land. This is the first 5 minutes! This game has loads of "action" scenes in it and lots of jaw-dropping moments! You will be on the edge of your seat during portions of this game. The scenes in this game once again are beautiful however I feel they are a bit lower quality than the last game. The soundtrack is pretty good, and the storyline was amazing! However in my opinion I felt the ending was a bit weak, however that could just be because my expectations were so high. There's not a whole lot I could say negatively about this game. For the Collector's Edition Extra Features: The Strategy Guide is always useful, it helped me figure out a couple of the Puzzles however you could always use the Hint Button if you are stumped and not sure what to do. The Bonus Adventure, while it ties in with the story and fills in the gap of how a "certain side-character dies" (Don't want to spoil it), I felt it was pretty short, even for a Bonus Adventure, and that is the main reason I pay the additional $10 for the Collector's Edition. The Wallpapers, Concept Art, and Soundtrack are included and you can save them in your Documents Folder to access later, and you can also replay Hidden Object Scenes and Mini-games without having to replay the game. I say this game is totally worth it, especially if you liked the other two Artifex Mundi games. If you haven't played them, or don't remember the story too well, you'll be fine playing this, you just might be a bit confused story-wise at some areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE most riviting trilogy ever! during my 5yr membership of BFG i have never ever left a review before but i could not pass this opportunity without saying a big thanks to ArtifexMundi for delivering such an outstanding suspensefull thiller and trilogy at that!! each episode gets better and better IMHO it crabs you from the get-go, reels you inn and keeps you in the edge of your seat right to the finish! I literaly had tears in my eyes at the finish!! THATS how impressed i was with it all! im not going into details of the story or gameplay!! every tiptop reviewer has already done that for you! all i want to say is if, by now, you are still in doubt as to weather you should get this (trilogy)game or not.....DONT!! go buy it and enjoy it as much as i did ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TEN STARS! ARTIFEX MUNDI RAISES THE BAR! YAY! This is going to be a very difficult game to beat by other Developers. The bar is high and game deserves 10 stars! Although gamers are drawn into a past history with evil ever searching to end the destruction, game can be played without having to have played the 1st two installments. Highly recommend playing for the sheer fun and enjoyment of gaming at it's best. What makes this game ever excellent is the story and stories dove tailing with every action. Nothing just pops up out of nowhere. Whoever scripted this story is a genius deeply respectful of ancient cultures. I commiserate with another fellow gamer who tried to find all the Collectibles. Even after playing the game twice, maybe the third will be a charm. Anyone who criticizes the game is due their opinion however disproportionate imho. This gamer would be very encouraged that Enigmatis 3 brings home a year end gaming excellence award! Much thanks and appreciation to Artifex Mundi Developers for one of the very best games played in all my gaming years on BFG. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 3 a Must have!!! What more can I say that other better reviewers have posted...only been back to bigfish after an absent of years to find the quality of games have only increased!!! (now retired!)...I download 6 to 10 games a week and only recently came across this series...decided on a whim to download all 3 episodes and play them in order...and WOW!!! having touched on most series on this site I have to say that this is one if not the best series I have come across, I was blown away from the quality of game, story, visual...and continuity of story line...absolutely brilliant, I get a bored with HOGS and the same old same old...but this series doesn't dwell on them, which is fantastic change!....I play these games on a laptop and I have not been let down with any quality of game, some I have downloaded and found I am unable to play whether it is because of my lappie or the game itself who knows, I don't bother trying to get a refund because usually those games are begotten though FREE punches anyway....but do recommend this series, and hope to see and find more from the makers!!!...I do recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Ending to the Series The developer has created an outstanding ending to the series. The graphics were good but not great; however, the story was good enough to counter that. I would like to say more but don't want to spoil anything by accident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Epic Game This has to be one of my favourite games. The developers have really stepped up with a game that has it all. Excellent voice overs, brilliantly inter-active HOS, and story line that has you hooked from the start. Some puzzles were harder than others, which made it all the more interesting, and frustrating at times, but overall this one heck of a game, Well done Artifex Mundi....more please!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now THIS is how to construct a series! I have been uncomfortable lately with many developers of series games departing from their roots, a few returning, but most not. Here is a game that never had to return to its roots because it never left them. ONE premise (a VERY complex one) which you do not learn until almost the end of the second game - but once you learn it you realize it has been there all along. THREE recurring characters - and what characters! All show some development throughout the trilogy, yet all hang on to their basic stances and principles. I am so impressed by the consistency I hope I am not making it sound boring. There are plenty of surprises though the entire trilogy. Yet everything is consistent (including, as one other reviewer said, that the Latin is real Latin.) This game - and I bought the standard edition, though I am reviewing it here under the Collector's edition because there are no reviews there and I am glad I did - but this third game of the three is so solid that it sent me back to play the first two again (well, it has been three years) to wrap my head around the whole story. The graphics have improved - they improved from the first game to the second, and even more in the third. The plot/story line - I'm not sure quite how to say this, but it keeps growing. Since each growth step transcends and includes all the plot that has gone before, I suppose you could say it improves, but that feels like a disservice to the earlier levels. I am deliberately being vague on the details of the play because I don't want to spoil anything - and also because the sheer size of the concept is what stays in my mind rather than the details. There was one scene when I first opened the game which played before the menu that I have not been able to get back again, and I would like to, because I didn't know what I was seeing and therefore didn't pay enough attention. But that may be the worst thing I can say about it Of course not everyone will like it. I doubt if there is any such thing as a game that everyone likes. But, dear developer, you can take over my world any time if you are going to do it like this. If I could make the three-game series my favorite game below, I certainly would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on Full game play + Bonus play- 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. Event 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… #shy of 400 games#!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Trilogy I don't review a lot, but when I do, I have to say a little something about a game, whether it be good or bad. I'm a little surprised that this game has only four stars. So many of us rate games five stars frivolously on this site. But this game is deserving of that. To be honest, if you've played the original and the sequel, you know the high quality that Artifex Mundi delivers. From the soundtrack to the outstanding visuals, the game is really quite beautiful. The are a wonderful developer. When a game is released, you know it is good quality. For me, the game is true to its roots, from the same great voice actors to the character's choices and beliefs. This is despite the amount of time that has transpired between each game. Yes, the story is a bit of a cliche (I'm sure most of us have seen it before in other games), but the developers take a wonderful edge to it by digging deep and getting into what I feel is amazing, unprecedented detail. I was disappointed only in one thing: the ending. While satisfying, I was left wanting in its brevity; I was hoping for more of a climax and a longer, deeper, story-driven ending. This would have complimented the detail and story-driven nature of the series as a whole. Alas, we don't get to see that conclusion. The game offers a variety of customization for difficulty, and the collector's edition offers an array of items, from a bonus chapter to the soundtrack, to a variety of standard achievements. It takes a page from the MCF series with finding additional objects on screen for those who love collecting items to complete their achievements. To be honest, I am a little sad this series is complete. But I do know what whatever comes next, Artifex Mundi will deliver with a quality I am used to. Highly recommended!
