Customer Reviews
Mortimer Beckett and the Book of Gold Collector's Edition is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Mortimer game with an addition of Patrick's sister I played a demo and I think the game is brilliant. I don't care that everything is connected to Snuggford, there are no enough games like this one and Delicious series. It actually is fun to have a little town and bump into the other characters. This game is fun, some levels are more difficult and it took me a while to get it, but that is all about it, to have fun. It is a still more like the Mortimer games and not Delicious and why Mortimer can't meet his dream girl? The look of character's is based on Delicious however you don't serve the customers, you still search for the hidden parts to assemble and solve the puzzles. The only annoying thing is that Big fish only offers a collector's edition. It is not worth paying a double.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Vast improvement on previous games in this series. Plenty of puzzles and challenges not just hidden object and a simple and silly but coherent storyline. Enjoyed the additional side puzzles but not sure how I will ever beat the timer on some of them. My only complaint is it would have been nice to have been able have more than one game saved, it meant having to wait until the other person had finished playing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER CUTE! I'm always looking for something a bit different. I tend to shy away from the games that EVERYONE loves. This fits the bill. Super adorable, great story, and lots of gameplay! I also really like the music and find myself singing it throughout the day! LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this game! I never review games anymore but I had to try to raise the rating on this one! I'm pretty tired of the same old dark hidden object games and this is very different from those. It took me a while to get into the rhythm of this game but once I did, I really enjoyed it.I thought this was more interesting and fun than most of the games i've played in a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! Very Fun. I really enjoyed this game. I see others have called it light hearted and charming and I certainly agree with them. I love that it starts in Snuggford and has a Delicious tie in. It's been a long time since I've played the previous MB games so I can't comment on the changes. I admit it could have been more challenging but I thought it was fun and I hope there are more MB games in the future. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to see Mortimer back! I just love this series. I was happy to see Mortimer back and once again bumbling along but succeeding in the end. Please try this game and the others in this series. I think you will be charmed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Book of Gold What an unexpected delight. This is a light hearted hidden- object adventure game packed with a lot of charm. Mortimer has just inherited his uncle's museum. Mortimer is quite the character, he loves talking to himself in a humorous fashion as he bumbles through the museum looking for the elusive book of gold his late uncle tasked him with in a letter he stumbles upon in the first level. You find hidden objects that are in pieces that are littered throughout the scene. Some of them are not easy to find. The hint button is useful and recharges after a short amount of time. Once you piece together the objects you drag them into the scene to use. With in each chapter there is a mouse to find as well as a mini-game to complete. There is a skip button. The game-play and graphics are flawless and the storyline is well constructed making this a quality game. This is a game the whole family can enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Surprising Treat ! I absolutely love the Mortimer Beckett games and own them all, and now this one. It is the first CE and still comes with no frills. But the changes in this one are delightful and there is very minimal character movement in this cartoonish installment. My demo went by so fast, I just simply bought it, to carry on! So Mortimer inherits his uncle's museum in the little town of Snuggford. He travels there and finds the place in a mess and while cleaning things up finds a letter from Uncle Jerome telling of an important artifact, the "Book of Gold". This inheritance and the Book of Gold sends Mortimer on an adventure to unusual places, lots of things to search for, a mystery to solve and bad guys to hinder his quest. They want the Book of Gold and he is in their way! He hooks up with a very bored young lady from Snuggford, just dying for something exciting to happen in her life. They end up together in this big adventure. Opposites attract! I just hope they don't get in each other's way ( lol )! I think this is a sweet, positive change for Mortimer Beckett. He's never had a love interest before and will somehow make the game even more fun. The theme song is really neat, actually sung and the music in the game has almost a Pink Panther type sound, but I could be wrong. No matter, I love it ! The graphics are sharp, minimal animation, very colorful. No voice-overs and plenty of dialogue, but nice large print making it easy on the eyes. Mortimer's appearance has changed and I like it, big improvement. Now he's a cute little guy, still geeky but more likeable. The last couple of games he was looking pretty Ugh! The only settings I found were sound and music and just one "How to Play" instruction. There is a skip puzzle button in upper left of screen, which is indicated by a puzzle piece in the green circle with the question mark. That also serves as the hint button too I think. Since I did not use, not sure. The items you search for in this HOG/Adventure game are broken in several pieces and scattered about, and it shows how many pieces to find. As in all Mortimer games they are cleverly hidden and not super easy to find. It is always a nice, fun challenge without pulling your hair out. There are subtle little sparkles throughout, but not the kind that are annoying. I only had two puzzles in the demo and the first one was quite clever. Mortimer Beckett games are always fun with just enough average to hard challenge. Look for a cute little mouse in each level, it is your collectible. Complete a level using no hints and win a green check mark. If you accomplish this on each level, you win a trophy. Trophies are kept in suitcase in upper right corner, can view anytime. The level can always be replayed if you don't succeed the first time. Well, I am anxious to get on with the adventure. I know I will enjoy it, as I have never been disappointed with a Mortimer Beckett game. Are there other big fans out there?! And I know it won't be liked by everyone, but try the demo and have a little fun! Faith....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An unbiased opinion of Mortimer Beckett I'll start off saying that many of the 1-star reviews seem to be from people who have played the Mortimer Beckett series in the past and are unhappy with this version. I have never played any of the Mortimer Beckett games, so my review will be based on this game alone. First of all, I've tried this game on the mobile platform, since the developer tends to introduce their games via both the mobile platform and their own PC gaming site before Big Fish receives the game. I didn't like it on my phone. I haven't tried it on the tablet. However, I find that I prefer it on the PC, especially since I have a touch screen. I was first intrigued by this game because the developer is more recently known for their Delicious series Time Management games. So, for them to come out with a hidden object game that features a character from the Delicious series, I had to try it out. And it's completely different from the HOGs that I'm used to playing. I like that the hidden object scenes are very challenging. The items that you need to find are fragmented and very well hidden -- frustratingly hidden. And yes, Carl the Mouse is in every scene as well. (Boy, that sucker gets around. LOL) The storyline is intriguing, and definitely different from what I've seen before. The graphics fall in line with the Delicious series, so they're nice and clear. The audio is okay, but I usually don't pay much attention to it. As I mentioned before, this game is very challenging. Many of the pieces that you have to find blend in very well with their surroundings, but you can use a hint if needed. As others have stated, there is no strategy guide, but I don't think one is needed, because once you find the pieces of the items that you need, using the items is pretty straightforward. I mean, you have a lock that you need to open, so you need to find the key. You find the pieces of a box cutter, because there's a taped box that needs to be open. As with the Delicious series, there are challenge levels where you can earn diamonds. I've only played the first two levels before the demo was over. The first one involved finding all of the silhouetted items within a specific time frame. The second one involved trying to find Carl's ever-growing family of mice (25 relatives). You receive a diamond for finishing the challenge, but if you finish it in the allotted time, then you receive an hourglass as well. I don't yet know if there's any significance to the hourglasses, other than receiving an achievement for getting all of them. There are other achievements to earn as well. With the diamonds, however, you can use them in an auction to purchase really cool museum artifacts. Having never played the Mortimer Beckett series before, I demoed an earlier game. While I won't go into detail regarding the differences between the two, I will say that I don't recommend playing both Mortimer Beckett games back to back. My brain hurts. While a new developer revamped the series, the challenge level is, in my opinion, of the same level as the older series. All in all, I found that I do like this game, and will add it to my growing collection of games. I would recommend this game to those who want a different type of hidden object game. However, to the fans of the Mortimer Beckett series, I urge you to go into this game with an open mind. Yes, it's very different than the previous games, but it's still a good game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Sure.... Downloaded trial. I'm not too sure about these crossover games. This is not the Mortimer Beckett I remember of old. The graphs are very time management- like (Delicious, etc). I admit that I prefer voices rather that writing on screen when characters are talking. puzzles are good. The atmosphere that the old MB games is just not there
