Mystery Tales: Art and Souls Collector's Edition is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cattitude When I purchased this game, I really wasn't expecting how enthralling the story was. Domini, one of the smaller publishers has been sneaking up on us with beautiful graphics, seamless audio and intriguing puzzles. They manage to pull you in deeper, and make you want to play the games over and over again. One of my favourites in this episode of the game, was Morty the cat. I won't give any more away, but just for his spunk this game is well and truly worth adding to your collection of Domini games. Hopefully, they include him in more stories from now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best games of the year I just had to submit a review of this game. I'm still playing and I am enjoying everything about this game. A must try. Great to see a choice for puzzles - easy vs. hard. The game is very colorful and the hidden object scenes have many variations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU’VE SIMPLY GOT TO LOVE A CAT WITH ATTITUDE In recent times, this developer has not been a favorite because of its heavy use of puzzles in its games. However, when I met Morty, a cat with attitude, that changed everything and I absolutely loved this game. I wasn’t planning to play more than just the demo of Mystery Tales Art and Souls, but I simply had to keep going and buy the game. This is one that I really enjoyed! Several years ago, there was a rash of games that dealt with the subject of people being sucked into paintings and, at that time, I was rather tired of the storyline. That being said, I truly enjoyed this game. The story is one of a father’s love, albeit misguided. I don’t generally like to give a “blow by blow” description of HOPA games and all that we can expect to find so I will leave it to others to provide all the details. Since I am not a huge fan of puzzles or mini-games, I was definitely surprised that I enjoyed the those in Art and Souls. There were a few old favorite puzzles that I haven’t seen in quite a while and those kept me busy happily solving away. The HOPS are amazing and beautiful and, IMHO, worth the price of the game. We all know this developer has a great love affair with intense colors and we will find them in this game as well but the colors don’t seem as unrealistic and don’t rely on too many neon colors. I think some of the backgrounds have been lightened up as well and that helped a lot. Mystery Tales Art and Souls is a game that I find very enjoyable. There is a bit of back and forth between scenes but I like that more than I do the strictly linear games. I now have to remember where I saw an item so I can go back and complete the required actions to move forward. Generally having a pet helper in a game isn’t something I love, but a cat with attitude makes all the difference. In fact, he was rather a fun cat and I hope to see him in another game from this developer. Wish I could have a Morty of my own but I think my Yorkies would rebel if I brought a cat home so it’s safer to have one in the game world. Although I haven’t quite finished the game, I certainly like everything about this one. Even though this one is a keeper and perfect for me, as always, I recommend that you try the demo to see if you will enjoy it as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Purrfectly Fun Game! I enjoyed this game a lot. Morty the Cat is amazing! He is so beautiful and fluffy, and I love the way he springs at you after the game has loaded. Very typical cat behaviour! This developer uses bright colours and I appreciate it. Often, I will just look around at each new scene taking it all in. It pays to click on different items, because you never know what will happen when you do. This adds to the fun. The other thing I always appreciate is the indicator showing you if there are items to collect left to find. Typically, I go in and out of a game numerous times before I am done with it, and I can't always remember where I left off, or what else needs to be done. So I like having a reminder of where I am at. And there isn't a lot of unnecessary toing and froing. There are usually several things to do in each location, which is a welcome relief. I thought the story line was good and easy to follow. Once again, Domini brought me a game I could truly enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of Trial I have only played the trial. Whilst not that bad, I think that this is a case of padding rather than substance. I unlike the other review think we do deserve longer games for CE editions. Older games have six to eight chapters or more and now we are down to three. That said I cannot say I am not enjoying to some degree what I have played and the above review gives a lot more in depth account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What's with the Moldy Teal Coloring? Hayley called me for help. I saved her from the Hangman previously. I'm a paranormal detective. Her husband who just opened a gallery has disappeared. When I go to the gallery I see her in the doorway and it slams closed and I hear her shriek. The opening gets boring. Your doing things and it's a big yawn. I was bored with this game until I reached the painted world. You would think they would make it exciting in the beginning to keep buyers. The purple cat with the blue and green eye is entertaining to me. Just seeing his fat little body creeping up made me laugh. Just seeing Morty the cat after the crows. Laughed again. Good effects Domini. The collectibles are 70 coins to furnish the study. Why they want 49 coins for a globe seems like I'm being short changed. I always save up for what I want most and buy it first, that isn't it. 15 morphing statues of famous artists called portraits. 15 hidden post cards. To see your collectibles, click on the wanted paint can. It has 3 chapters + bonus. Data rich at 1.2 G. Replays on 18 hops, 15 mini-games, 5 music and my favorite 29 videos. The map can show you your collectible not yet found. The map also has achievements. Domini's achievements are ho hum. The ending of the trial is different from the beta. I'd like the original coloring back and the moldy teal to go away. The hops are fun with morphing objects, placing objects and matching pairs so far. I could do some puzzles and I skipped some. Custom setting Zero skip and hint time. Over all I liked the game in parts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from COLOR ME DISAPPOINTED - A LONG BRUSH WITH BOREDOM REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 3 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide:48 pages (My Time: 6 Hours which seemed like forever!) OPINION: Detective! Jump into the world of art, or in this case, the Painted World. Enter a long game, one which will see you hopping from picture to picture in the search for a magic brush. Help a former client locate her missing husband. kidnapped into this world by a misguided, power- hungry madman. Speaking of misguided, what has happened to this developer? This game does not come close to the excellence seen in their previous ones. I was shocked! Paint me disappointed. Although the game is long, it is devoid of activities. The pace grinds down at the end – snail paced as it crosses the finish line. There is a great deal of filler. In my opinion, some of this game should have been cut. I would rather play a shorter game which has a good pace than one with a lot of time filler. Nevertheless, there are some great features in this game. There are three thematic collectibles, morphing paintings, stamps, and coins to purchase items for a study. I found them easy to locate. There are three pots of paint which open when there is a collectible within a scene. There is an option to replay some of the HOP scenes and mini-games. However, I wish the developer had offered more of the mini-games to be replayed. HOP SCENES: There are nineteen (19) of the most creative HOP scenes I have played. For me, the HOP scenes are the best part of the game. Each scene encompasses a new type of HOP scene. I loved playing a new style of HOP scene from this developer in which pictures with holes within them are placed on the scene to create the item to be removed. Quite ingenious! There is a scene with cryptic clues and there is one with rebus clues. There are also the usual lists of items, matching, storybook, search and replace, and silhouette scenes. MINI-GAMES: There are twenty-seven (27) mini-games. Most have the option to be played in either an “easy” or “hard” mode. The majority of the mini-games have the option to be played in either an “easy” or “hard” mode. They are well-designed as usual for the developer. THE CHAT CAT: Help! No! Tell me it isn’t so! Hopefully, this developer is not planning on including “helpers” in their future games. Morty is a purple annoyance with blue and green eyes. He talks throughout the game making snarky remarks. He pounces about, retrieving items, catches mice (in one scene), claws posts, and is a pain in the neck. Unfortunately, from comments within the game, it appears he may be returning for an encore performance in the future. I love cats, have one as a pet -but don’t want to see a cat nor any helper within a HOP game. BONUS GAME: It is a sequel and another story. Help Scarlett Dubois deal with a ghostly presence at the Modern Museum of Art. For me, this chapter is not as good as the main game. There is time filler in this chapter as in the main tame. There are seven (7) mini-games and five (5) HOP scenes. In my opinion, these activities are not as good as those in the main game. Continue to collect the collectibles. Morty the cat is your sidekick in this chapter as well . Unfortunately, this chatty cat talks even more in this chapter. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • Thirty-seven (37) achievements. • Collect sixty-five (65) coins to purchase items for a study • Collect fifteen (15) morphing portraits • Collect fifteen (15) postcards • Five (5) wallpapers along with concept art, music and video sequences • A purple helper cat named Morty with bi-colored eyes. • Replay fifteen (15) mini-games and eighteen (18) HOP scenes SPOILERS: HERE ARE SAMPLES OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: (E/H -Easy, Hard) A. E/H. Switch puzzle. Switch the numbers on a clock so each number is in the proper location. Use arrows at the top (and at the bottom for the easy mode) to switch numbers. B. E/H Domino puzzle. Place tiles (as in dominoes) into position so that both ends of each domino match the ones abutting it. C. Multiple step. (1) Paint by Number. Paint sections of a picture by coloring numbered sections matching those on colored pencils. (2) Assembly puzzle. Rotate pieces of a picture into position to restore it. D. E/H Pattern puzzle. Rotate prongs emanating from tiles so they match the pattern given on a diagram. E. Matching puzzle. Match up tiles until all are removed BONUS CHAPTER: F. E/H Moving tokens puzzle. Move 4 colored tokens to their same colored slots using clunky levers. (Found this a little frustrating). Tokens will continue to move until they hit an obstacle. G. Connection puzzle. On a grid with honeycomb shaped cells, use a dragon to fill in all the squares of the grid. The dragon continues to move in the grid until it hits an obstacle. You cannot return to any cell twice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from "ART WASHES AWAY FROM THE SOUL THE DUST OF EVERYDAY LIFE" What if art could cleanse our souls and bring us peace and joy. What if we could paint a perfect world with just the stroke of a paintbrush? A world that would keep our loved ones safe for eternity, a world with no sickness, no pain, and no suffering, Such a beautiful world of bliss would surely come at a high cost and such a peaceful solitary Eden would surely become lonely. What if one grieving father created such a perfect world to keep his baby girl from suffering but loses his soul in the process? How can there be a happily ever after Utopia if everyone lives in fear of the artists' brushstroke especially when the artist is a father who just wants everything perfect for his little girl? H??ρ??/Gα????: Art and Soul have a Gadget and a Helper! The "Gadget" is the newly revised Mystery Tales Glasses upgrade, a Cell Phone that allows you to make and receive calls from the Dearly-Departed which requires a big stretch of one's imagination to contemplate. For me personally, the glasses made more sense, whatevs, but the fact that Domini felt the need to add this "Gadget" so that it could be used ONE SINGLE TIME throughout a very long, drawn-out game, including the CE Bonus Chapter, is utterly ridiculous! The Helper is a talking cat named Morty who has quite the sarcastic "tude" since I happen to thrive on sarcasm, I was totally fine poking this begrudging bear. He's actually adorable and reminded me of my beloved cat (without the bi-colored eyes) besides, he's only used 8 times during the main game and not at all in the CE Bonus Chapter, and like most felines, he sleeps most of the time. I would suspect he was just as bored with this game as I was...just saying... Hι???? O????? S?????: There are 13 Hidden Object Scenes +5 in the CE Bonus Chapter. The objects are easily spotted and the scene types aren't very creative. There are Listed Item Finds, Interactive Listed Items Finds, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Combination Silhouetted Shape Finds (SS+SS=?) Multiples of Item Finds, Keywords in Sentence Finds, Matching Pair Finds, and Item Replacement Finds. There were only2 Scenes I enjoyed, one required aligning pictures that had a shaped hole into the scene where the missing item was, the other one was a Riddle Description Find that at least some effort was put towards its creation. There is an alternate Match 3 game available which doesn't allow you to make fast consecutive matches because you have to wait for all the tiles to stop falling before you can make your next move, and there's no Time of Move Limit which kind of defeats the purpose of the game, unless the purpose is to allow you to skip the HO scene to which I say, "why not just have an option to Skip the HO scene"? Mι?ι-Gα???: There are 23 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. I'm a puzzle geek but most of these games were recycled games from previous games, not to mention the fact that they were super easy even on the Hard Mode. Below are a few brief descriptions of some of the mini-games that were more interesting" ? Rotate 4 Maze sections to allow the ball to travel through each maze to the exit. ? Rotate picture fragments that are connected by hinges. ? Move musical notes to highlighted slots to align them withing their color-coded columns. ? Create a path to the exit by swapping tiles that will change your direction when landing on them. ? Arrange clock numbers correctly by rotating the face and swapping the numbers. ? Select sliders to rotate different loops to fill the center square with Gargoyles and the outer with Phoenixes. Bσ?υ? C?αρ??? (Cσ?????σ?'? E?ι?ισ? V???ισ?) This is a lengthy, boring tedious, sequel with a ton of repetitive tasks. After receiving a frantic video call from a potential new client, the Detective is convinced that Scarlett Dubois is dealing with paranormal activity at the Modern Art Museum. When he arrives at the museum, no one seems to know the whereabouts of Madame Dubois and foul play is suspected. There are only 6 Mini-Games and 5 Hidden Object Scenes taking place over 10 Scene Locations which just shows you that there's a lot of meaningless filler tasks added to stretch the game. You will find the final 3 Postcards, 4 Morphing Paintings, and 10 Coins which allows you to purchase the final items to decorate the Study. Morty the Cat's services aren't required i this chapter, nor is the Otherworldly Paranormal Mobile Device, even though Morty is still visibly napping the entire time. Cσ?????σ?'? E?ι?ισ? Ex??α'?: 5 Wallpapers (all with characters...why can't we get wallpapers without characters? why can't they just add character profile pictures separately?) 10 Concept Art Pictures. 5 Music Soundtracks, 29 Movie Video Cutscenes, 37 Achievements, 15 Replayable Mini-Games, 18 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 15 Morphing Portraits, 15 Collectible Postcards (learn more about the Art Gallery Museum) 65 Collectible Zoom Zone Coins, 15 Study Items to purchase with Coins, 3 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter, and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
