Customer Reviews
Mystery Tales: The Lost Hope Collector's Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game play This game had every thing I look for in a Hidden Object Game! I loved the voice overs, the cut scenes, the collectable and Bonus room with little critters you collect and transform to life from stone.. I LOVED the music and so glad you can download it to your hard drive...I loved especially the HOS!! I totally love putting objects back into a scene. You do play each scene twice BUT after playing it once by finding items, the next time you play the same scene you place items back into the scene, which breaks up any monotony. I would like to see more HOS like that...placing items into a scene. I enjoyed the story line and the Bonus game! It took me about an hour to complete the Bonus round. The main game took about 5-6 hours straight through. Great game and worth the CE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow...This is a psycological adventure not to be missed!!! Mystery Tales opens up with a well-made but not very exciting cutscene introducing the story that we are about to witness. Your sister lived with her husband, Emmett in a small town named Reghin until she died five years ago; Emmett ran away from the town and no one has heard about him since. One day, you received an invitation from Emmett; who apparently is back in town again to offer you a chance to meet your sister. When you arrived at the town, townsfolk are behaving strangely and Emmett seems to be blamed for the cause. Discover secrets about your brother-in-law as well as the supernatural forces that cause chaotic in the town. Despite this promising story, I found the pace of the game to be somewhat slow, also, cutscenes could have been more exciting, and more action. Nevertheless, the game redeems itself on the presentation side. The graphics are sharp and great looking even though they can be a little bit plain and dark on occasions. The voice overs and the soundtracks are also nicely done, fit the theme of the game smoothly. Moreover, I enjoyed the above-average challenges and the twists in the gameplay that Mystery Tales offers. The Hidden Object scenes come in two types with mode-switching feature; for the standard-list type, you can switch to Jigsaw mode while for the replacing-the-missing-items type, you can switch to Match 3 mode. This option is very fascinating and adds more variety to the gameplay. This game is not so heavy on HOGs but more on the adventure aspects and the puzzles. Luckily, both of these aspects of the game are also expertly crafted. The puzzles are nice and challenging with some totally new ones. The gameplay is not so straightforward or easy, there are many locations to visit and many tasks at hand. The map really comes in handy! There is also a dossier (journal) which is 35 pages long. For the Collector's Edition, Mystery Tales is filled with a bunch of cool extras. A collection of Achievements and three types of Collectibles; animals, coins and gems. Coins can be used to purchase new interface design for the game while gems can be used to revive the animals you collected in the zoo. Other extras are regular including a Free Search mode. Mystery Tales: The Lost Hope is an enthralling game despite its considerably slow story. It might not be action-packed or heart-racing but it is certainly entertaining to play; with great graphics, fun puzzles and worthy bonuses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutly amazing game The graphics are fantastic. Everything is detailed and wonderfully done. The level of challenge is very good. The puzzles are not easy and not very difficult. They are just right. You can choose between three playing modes or custom your own difficulty more. The HOS are well done and there are two types of HOS in the game. Usual one and insert the item. You can substitute this HOS with jigsaw puzzle and match3 game. You can collect crystals, coins, animals while you are playing. And also you can decorate your UI and make animals alive in the zoo. I really like the last! The developers made a great job and I can't wait to see other their games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What fun! I just finished this game and loved every minute. I think it is well worth the money. I played on the casual level. Even though the games were not highly challenging, they were just plain fun. The map is excellent and I always appreciate when it allows you to be teleported to your next area of interest. Of course, you might decide not to use it or the hint button. The length was long or, at least seemed so. I played off and on today in between running errands Looking for collectables and being able to use them in a couple of ways, added to the enjoyment. Also, it had a good story line and I loved the way information was provided for each character as the game progressed. The HO's were varied in that at times you had to look for objects, place objects in the scene, etc. The graphics I thought to be excellent. I have to admit that, on occasion, I could not find or place that one last object. Don't you hate that? Strickly my fault and I found myself switching to the alternative play (match 3, or place pieces into a puzzle). I had promised myself I would not resort to that. <g>. I have not, yet, played the bonus chapter but am looking forward to doing so. A higher level of challenge was given because you are allowed to change this level during the game and can adjust this at will. I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! You know how much I appreciate out of the box thinking, so thank you devs for all the extras on this game! There are zoo creatures to find throughout the game, nothing special right? Wrong, find hidden crystals and use those crystals to "transform" your creatures and bring them to life. There are also coins to find and there is a shop that allows you to upgrade your panel, something I have never see done before. You can upgrade the inventory panel, the journal and even the alchemist crucible you receive from Emmett. There are plenty of achievements, some achievements unlock wallpapers. That's just the beginning folks, there are a ton of mini games and a lot of them are either brand spanking new or twists on older games. I liked the bridge puzzle where you had to flip over boards with 6 different levers until you completed the picture. The HOS were interactive list finds and you could opt for a jigsaw puzzle instead. The story is good, you are summoned to your childhood town of Reahin by your best friend Emmett who claims that his wife is no longer dead! Green demons are wreaking havoc on the town and the few citizens you find are blaming your friend Emmett. Hope is not lost, is it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game Even though the visual quality isn't perfect (no full screen on my laptop and pauses moving from a scene to another one) this game is really amusing and enjoyable, with nice HOS and puzzles,a lot of backtracking and good lenght.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green skeletons, zoo animals, a chained up Annie! I played the beta of this game and it is sooooo much improved from then. There are so many things to do you can't get bored! You receive a letter from your brother-in-law Emmet, 5 years after your sister's death who implies she is alive. So you drop everything and go to the town of Reghin, where all the people seemed to be zoned out and controlled by some green skeleton heads. You also discover Emmett is known as the Alchemist, and is suspected of murdering 5 people including the mayor and the doctor. You find Emmett's little sister Annie chained up in a tavern, and eventually you run into Emmett who says he has some unfinished business to attend to, but gives you his alchemist's crucible for help with the enchanted "green" items. Whew! There are 18 achievements to earn, 10 zoo animals to find and transform (like Pegasus, Phoenix, and Cerberus), coins to find and spend on decorating your crucible and inventory panel. plus a bonus chapter, strategy guide and the other CE goodies. The HOS are either lists, for which you can substitute a jigsaw puzzle , or "insert the item", which you can substitute a Match 3 game for. The mini-games are fun -- some are a bit hard. You get a journal, a dossier of the key players as you find them, and an interactive jump map which shows where active areas are. The four modes of play, including custom, show satisfy all. This is a great game from a new developer. Try it -- it's fun!
