Mystery Tales: Dangerous Desires Collector's Edition is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why the low ratings?! This game is plenty long and has great, challenging, HO scenes and mini games. The graphics are spot on and the map and strategy guide are great. (I love it when a map indicates that there are still collectibles waiting. ) The story line is fine and there's not a ton of back and forthing. You also have the option to play match three instead of HO. The poor reviews don't make any sense to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There isn't one thing that I don't love about it! Collect morphing cursed items and coins. Of course you have your very special glasses, through which you see the past. After spotting a "past" scene, you can interact with it. I liked the atmospheric music that was present from time to time to which I always pay attention! Some puzzles were greater than others and I appreciate the fact that you can interchange between the difficult and easier mode for them. The game has an excellent gameflow and suspense! So, kudos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romantic story!! I thought this story was about evil, you have a guy going around turning everyone into stone, and you have to defeat, ASAP, you find objects are your journey that help you. It's starts off at the museum, the women has already been turned into stone, you are warned not to look into the guys eyes, that's what turns you, you have HOS and puzzles to do, some hard, some easy. The ending was a complete surprise for me, hence my title, the story is all about love, and the women who dies, and the daughter. I no others will enjoy this game as much as I did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summoned to the Museum, again. Pretty graphics and appropriate music. Chase after an evil spirit. Use magic eyeglasses. Look for collectibles and also earn achievements. Neat games in between scenes. A must buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET AN EVIL “GENIE OUT OF THE BOTTLE!” REVIEW BASED ON THE ENTIRE GAME – Time: 5 Hours 5 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 49 Pages OVERVIEW: Puzzle-lovers! Get prepared for another wonderful adventure from our “puzzlemeister,” Domini. Detective! - Moro, an evil magician, has escaped! Olivia, the museum curator, has contacted you for help. He is now turning everyone he meets into stone. As a physician during the Black Plague, Moro lost his family and now he has lost his mind as he plots to resurrect them from the dead! Using black magic in the past, Moro was imprisoned by a secret order and the crystals which gave him his power were hidden away by this secret order. Unfortunately, the museum custodian broke a vase and “let this evil genie out of the bottle.” Moros is now scouring the countryside searching for crystals to place within his amulet to restore his power to bring back his deceased family. Stop him before he destroys the barrier between the two worlds of the living and the dead. This is a LONG game and WELL WORTH THE PRICE! The game is fast paced with plenty of activities to keep you occupied. The graphics are decent. Domini provides those little extras which most developers do not provide. Added in this game is the optional choice of playing a “Hard game” versus a “Casual game” when you customize your settings. There are three collectibles – morphing cursed objects, coins to purchase items for your secret room, and diary pages. They are easy to locate. There are butterflies attached to the inventory bar to indicate if you have located all the collectibles within that scene. This game will not appeal to everyone. As in all this developer’s games, it is another puzzle-intense, HOP lite game. You can replay some of the puzzles and HOP scenes. I am looking forward to replaying some of these. In the hard version, some of these puzzles are difficult and some I skipped hoping to replay them this weekend. GIMMICKY WINGED GLASSES: Does wearing glasses makes you smarter or more observant? Maybe not, but these gimmicky glasses will return you to the past to observe past events. This is the only part of the game I dislike. Domini - this is a gimmick which would make the game better if it were removed! Hopefully you will stop using this gimmick in this game series. BONUS CHAPTER: Get ready for the dead to rule the world! Well maybe not – if you have anything to do about it! You are off to help Olivia again in this chapter. This time Olivia has located the Necronomicon and, by reciting a spell, has brought a mummy back to life. It jumped out of the sarcophagus and is now causing havoc and took the book as well! Help get that mummy laid to rest and get that book out of its bony fingers! I have not played the bonus chapter in its entirety. The main game took me hours to complete. However, from what I have played, it appears to be an excellent sequel to the main game. I also like the Bonus Chapter BETTER than the main game. HOP SCENES: In the main game there are thirteen (13) HOP scenes. There are not as many scenes as puzzles; however, they are standard scenes which you see in most games. They are not as creatively designed as the puzzles. There are no mini-puzzles within the scenes as in other games by this developer. Most of the scenes are very interactive. They include lists of items and silhouette items. Some of the scenes require you to replace them back within the scene after they are located and some require searching for more than one of the items. There are a few storybook scenes in which you search for items listed in RED letters. In one you replace them back within the scene. PUZZLES: In the main game there are twenty-nine (29) puzzles. This is a puzzle-intense game with some well-designed puzzles. As stated, most of the puzzles have the option between the designations of “Hard” and “Casual.” You can also play a Match-3 game in lieu of the puzzles. Here are a few of the game’s puzzles: A. Matching puzzle. For a center bar in a grid with protruding jigs, move twelve (12) jigs above and below this center bar so that they mesh with it. B. Maze puzzle. Light up buttons on a maze as per a given diagram. Move a token through a maze with four clocks with hands which block your way. Both move the hands of the clock to allow access to the maze and move the tokens back and forth until the lights on the maze match that of a diagram. C. Mahjong puzzle. Remove tiles by pairs until all are gone. It is rare to find this puzzle in a HOP game. D. Paint-by-Number. Paint a picture using two tubes of paint. Direct the flow of the paint from the two tubes so that only certain sections contain that color paint. E. Easter eggs at Halloween! Moving tiles puzzle. Move decorated eggs along paths until the rune on each egg matches up with the rune beneath it. F. Connection puzzle. On a grid, rotate 36 stones with arrows upon them to plot a route so that when you press a start button, you will pass through every stone. The kicker is that there are red directional stones which cannot be moved. This is a brain cruncher in the hard mode. G. Ye ole book puzzle! Switch puzzle. Switch books so the number on the book matches with the number below it. FAVORITE PUZZLE: Come fly with me! Hang glider puzzle. Soar with the birds as you maneuver a hang glider over a mountain pass. Yippee! However, you must avoid a murder of crows using arrows at the side to dodge them, or you will need to start all over again. This can be “murder” in the hard mode! LEVELS: Casual, Advanced, Hardcore, Custom Hints and Skips: 15 to 90 seconds EXTRAS: Optional “Hard” and “Easy” settings for the game Map is provided as you play the game Magic glasses. Allow you to see the past. 35 Achievements Collect 51coins to purchase cursed objects and 12 diary pages 15 Morphing cursed objects Replay 17 HOP scenes and 16 Puzzles 14 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art, Music

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some doctors are a plague…. A voice from the middle ages: ‘somebody as ruthless as me’ cannot be destroyed by mere fire ….’ The burning man at the stake is Moro, accused of practicing black magic and he promises to come back, stronger than ever. We receive a call from our friend Olivia. She is unsure about an artifact, which shall be part of her new exhibition on a plague doctor in the middle ages at the museum. Arriving there, we witness a strange fight between a man on the balcony and his ghostly attacker. The man is thrown into the thicket below. It is Kevin, working with Olivia, he can warn us of Moro before turns to stone. With the help of our special glasses, we may look into the past and see, what happened before Olivia called us and we hurried to the place. In the museum we have to master one barrier after the other, but we find hints: there is Kevin’s note, saying, he cannot help the feeling of being watched by the figurine of Moro. The glasses reveal: Kevin accidentally dropped an urn and out of the broken vessel, Moro materializes. Kevin is immediately attacked and lands, where we found him. Later in the game we will learn more about Moro. But first this old sorcerer has put obstacles in our way. The first hall is guarded by two knights, who won’t grant you passage. Cleverly you may use a cannon, to blow them up. In the hall, Moro has frozen the fountain, doors to other halls are locked and Olivia is nowhere to be seen. Moro was a plague doctor in the middle ages and accused of practicing black magic. When burning at the stake, he sealed away his spirit in his amulet. So now Moro’s spirit has returned, but the amulet is not complete. The crystals, part of the amulet, have been taken out to prevent his return. He needs them back – and we have to prevent it! Full of challenging mini games, variable HOS and special effects the game enfolds the plot at fast pace. Moro is dangerous, as he can turn those to stone, who look him in the eye. When you come near a crystal, he materializes and is coming up… In addition to a suspenseful gameplay, we have many collectibles, the useful collectible-indicator and of course, we may choose difficulty for the puzzles. The extras offer a replay of HOS and mini games/puzzles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun to pass time I don't buy a lot of these HOP games, although I've been a Big Fish member for ten years or more. I loved the early ones that made you think, like Ravenhearst and Return to Ravenhurst. Now almost all HOP games have been dumbed down to a non-thinking level, and if you want to play in your sleep, you can use a hint. That said, I recently found myself in the unusual place of lying in a hospital bed due to a foot infection. Eek! Wanting to pass the time, I downloaded this game. It kept my interest. The puzzles were fun. The graphics were colorful. It was not particularly challenging but there were times I scratched my head, wondering what to do next. Hidden object searches seem particularly stupid to me, but I tolerated the ones here. I guess the reason I write this review is to dispute some of the frequent reviewers who play and tear apart every game, and look for numbers of hidden object scenes, which puzzles, etc. It is my view that these games are pretty much all the same. When one is in a position to download one, you can shop around but you most probably won't get anything significantly different from the others. Mad Games started off different, then fell into line with the other. Ditto Elephant earlier and many others. Perhaps the genre is getting old, or perhaps one is not really meant to download and purchase every single game offered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice collectibles... Hello friends! And this series just keeps growing. As usual, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to those who do a much better job than I. The graphics in this game are quite good, except for the blur you have when going in and out of a close up scene. This seems to be a standard with this series and a lot of others. Colors are bright, but tend to have a bit of a blue hue...still nice. Sound FX aren't bad and pretty much throughout the demo. Although they are few and far between, the voices are quite well done, being age and character appropriate. Needed more character interaction. You can click through the dialog if you read faster than they speak, without really missing anything. Game play was excellent, no problems during the demo. Animation was excellent and had very smooth movements. The music was somewhat soothing. Again, we have those silly glasses to see into the past. This gives us more insight into the story, which isn't new, and also allows us to pick up useful items along the way. HOPs are very well done. You have a combination of interactive lists and interactive silhouettes. The scenes are fairly clear and items are not difficult to find. These are well done. You can switch to a match 3 for something different. Puzzles are not all that difficult, but some did take me some time and thought to complete. Hint system is quite useful and actually gives you a hint, rather than telling you to move on. Of course, this is my favorite map, very clear and easy to follow. It shows you the areas where you have missed a collectible, so you can go back and pick it up. The map also automatically opens and shows you where to go, when you need to transport to a longer location. This is very helpful and a time saver, as we do a lot of back tracking in this game. Collectibles are many in this game. We need to find 15 morphing items, which morph very quickly; 51 coins to buy items for the boudoir so watch for them; a lot of diary pages that are not all that easy to spot; and I ran across weapons as well - 15 of them. I accidentally found a couple. Collectibles are nicely done. The story seemed to flow well and was easy to follow, but still was nothing new. I figured out how this would end after speaking with Larry, but I think I need to play it out to see if I'm right. Not sure how I missed beta testing this one. This addition was not all that challenging, except a few puzzles, but I like it well enough to keep going, and I especially like the collectibles. I think all levels of players will find this one worth the CE price. Yes, I am adding this to my every growing collection of CE games. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No mystery here I found this game to have more bark than bite. The description of the game was oversold and thus created a slow, dull and sometimes boring adventure.
