Rated 4 out of 5 by from No mystery here! This was a good game--short but good! Just finished the SE version of this game and it was indeed short but good. Elephant Games' devs really do put out good games--not very challenging but fun things to do in this one. It's not the most exciting game I've ever played. The sad storyline involves the disappearance of your family. But you will get answers and hopefully conquer the evil Black Mimic! Beware of the Black Mimic. Not a pretty villain at all! The graphics were awesome--the Black Mimic was scary to me and believable. Beautiful, crisp colors--great artwork! I had some minor, quirky things going on with my computer at the intro given that my computer is not old and all my drivers are updated, but once I got past the intro all was well. I didn't feel it necessary to contact the support team. At the beginning of the game, you will have the option of whether or not you want your helper Elf to tag along. Of course, I chose the little fella. It wouldn't be the same without him. The voiceovers were good, map and hint button were pretty cool. For the tasks, there was from time to time no rhyme to its reasoning but I'm not the least bit sorry that I bought this game. I enjoyed many of the tasks and puzzles very much. I do recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game on discount A very good game, passing the evening is just what you need. I bought this game on discount on Big Fish and did not regret it. Maybe I would be more demanding if I gave the full price for it, but since at a discount, I think it is worth the money. The game is in pretty gray colors, but I like it. The plot is simple, but interesting, nonetheless. I also liked the bonus chapter, an interesting development of events parallel to the main storyline. It seems that we are waiting for an even more exciting continuation with the following parts. This is 17th part already. I really like Elephant Games. Their hidden object scenes are always beautiful, understandable and easy. Mini-games too, although some make you sweat. The only difficult hidden object scene in this game was in the last scene of the bonus chapter, where you had to look for snowflakes. They are very small and merges, and here I strained my eyes a little. I do not like to strain my eyesight... The dog Elf that accompanies us looks a little dumb. It could be made more attractive. This is probably because I like corgi more. Developers, will you add corgi in new games? However, he could be left alone on the pier, but I did not want to. You can’t leave your pets alone. Never! I did not feel that the game is short. Just normal for the duration, and the bonus chapter too. Somehow I missed the morphing of the object, and it is unfortunate that I cannot return after beating the game and take it. Yes, Elephant Games is not Eipix. Achievements of 3 minutes per HO scene are too strange. I believe that you need to enjoy the search, and not fast-fast look for objects. No pleasure at all. And specifically to spend 10 minutes in the HO scene, why? They usually spend no more than 5 minutes of time. Well, okay, that's their business. I gave this game "4" stars because at some points it was completely unclear what to do. It turned out that some objects are either inconspicuous or simply not taken at first. For example, a shoulder blade in a pile of stones. Or that you need to unscrew the screws on the side of the panel, which is not visible at all and does not even sparkle. Also, the availability of a new location is not indicated on the map if you have not yet moved there. So, I was stuck because I didn’t know that a park had opened for me with a playground around the corner. But this is not indicated on the map. What a pity. It’s like a tip to developers so that this does not happen in the future. Just like there are small bugs when it is shown that an action can be done in a location, but it turns out that this is half the action, that is, you cannot do it. Ugh... I hope everyone understands what I mean. In general, I liked the game, I will wait for the next part. Take it at a discount, I think, and you will like it too! P.S. It's review initially for Collectors Edition. But Standard Edition also worth the price, so, please, take it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THINGS GET LOOSE Completed Game approximately 4 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 20 Main Game Scene Locations +8 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner Fifteen years have passed since the incident occurred in Watch Hill, an incident that claimed the lives of your parents and baby brother Will. Today's assignment stirs all kinds of emotions because it has returned to your hometown, it can be anyone or anything to anybody. It has escaped, it renders its victims memoryless, void of basic functionality. It must be stopped, it is everywhere, it is everything to everyone, it is Project Black Mimic and it was the beginning and end of your beloved parents....sic 'em Elf! Man, if this developer would just make their games a little more challenging this Mystery Tracker game would go down in history because the story is fantastic! The Bonus Chapter was a phenomenal concept that takes you back to Mystic Labs as the Anti-everything, the dark to the light, the down to the up, the wrong to the right, the Dark to the Light. You play on the cusp of a Fringe Universe, an alternate reality where things are the same yet slightly different, playing as the same agent of the Dark Trackers instead of the Mystery Trackers, how cool is that? Unfortunately, the game itself is super easy and everything is predictable, you'll know what object is needed to complete every task, where to look, what to do and when and where to use things. You'll know where the HO scenes will be the second you walk in a room, you'll know to open up scenes where there are cabinets and drawers and know they will all need emblems. It's okay to have easy games, but maybe, just maybe guys, you could pop out at least 1 game a year that is suited towards the largest percentage of HOPA gamers, a challenging game? (maybe dev's wouldn't be struggling like they are nowadays. A decade or so later we have gotten really good at these games yet you still offer games that are super easy with no challenge whatsoever? The masses aren't being catered to anymore, so the masses have quit playing, We have evolved, but you remain the same, doing the same thing, perhaps even less challenging than in the beginning, isn't that obvious by now?) Helper/Gadget: I can't imagine playing a Mystery Trackers game without my partner Elf, nonetheless, you do get the option of abandoning Elf on the pier, man that's just cold! Elf is used 3 times per chapter (3 Chapters) in the Main Game and 0 times in the Bonus Chapter, however, Dark Elf is used 5 times in the Bonus Chapter. Morphing Objects/Collectibles: (CE version only) There are 12 Collectible Lighthouses and 28 Morphing Objects that morph at medium speed but at least they morph into a similar object to make it less obvious. Most of the Zoom Zones have a Puzzle Fragment that automatically completes 3 Screensavers (yet there's no option to "set" them?) My only complaint is that this developer never lets you return to the scene to pick up missed collectibles! Hidden Object Scenes: There are 12 Hidden Object Scenes +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. I rarely impressed with any of the HO Scenes by Elephant because the items practically jump out at you. Do me a favor and try to find the items w/o looking at the list and I'll betcha you can find most objects! There are Interactive List Finds, Multiples of Items Finds, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Keywords in Sentence Finds, Find & Replace Items, Uncover Matching Pair Finds, Spot the Difference and an old-fashioned HO scene where you find & drag objects to their matching pictured token. There are no alternate games available. Mini-Games: There are 15 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Most of the games are standard Elephant games that you've probably played several times. Here are a few of the ones I enjoyed the most: 1-Connect color-coded wire ends to partial symbols to complete the symbols' images. 2-Place letters correctly, letters are pushed along tracks as new ones are added. 3-Click on rolling balls. 4-Move buttons 1 step clockwise or 2 steps counterclockwise. Bonus Chapter (Collector's Edition version only) DO-OVER! Return to the same scenes as offered in the main game only this time you are playing as a Dark Agent working for the Dark Trackers. I loved this concept, it's a very cool and unusual scenario. There are 8 Scene Locations in this average-length chapter which has 6 Mini-Games and 5 Hidden Object Scenes. You will search for the remaining 3 Collectible Lighthouses, 8 Morphing Objects, and 9 Puzzle Fragments which allows you to complete the final screensaver. Collector's Edition Extra's 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art Pictures, 3 Screensavers, 5 Music Soundtracks, 21 Achievements, 13 Replayable Mini-Games, 13 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes (within the Archives Room) 12 Collectible Lighthouses, 28 Morphing Objects 34 Zoom Zone Puzzle Fragments, 3 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MT is a good series, not a fan of the environment This was another challenging for all levels game from MT. I don't like to live in a lab so much of the time. but other than that, I liked it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Such a short game! Length of game play = 60 minutes after completing the trial, so 90 minutes total. The game play was as all Mystery Trackers games go, which is really engaging. Hidden object scenes were middle-level difficulty, most things were easy enough to find with a few tricky ones. The mini games were pretty easy as well, most required only a few moves and they were solved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Mystery Trackers is one of my favorite series, but The Secret of Watch Hill was a disappointment. While the artwork was impressive, the game was too short, so I'm glad I didn't opt for this in a Collector's Edition. The plot could have been more involved, and as it was I found myself just clicking through each scene, finding things that were needed to find and use for something else. Hope the next one offers more of a challenge.
