About the Game

Down by the deep and muddy Mississippi, something’s not right. A ghostly riverboat brings to light a new conspiracy for players to unravel in this all-new Midnight Mystery.

Mark Twain’s ghost has come to you seeking help from an evil that has been stalking him in the afterlife. Trace the steps in Twain’s past that led to a lifetime of anguish. Twain’s passion for literary history reignites a controversial debate about the true identity of Shakespeare; the age-old question resurrects a series of malevolent characters. After waking an unexpected evil, Twain sets about to rid his time of the darkness, but the plot only thickens. With Twain’s help, you have to unravel the connections to try and set history straight while dangerous forces loom.

Who wrote the works of Shakespeare? And just how did Mark Twain get caught up in a strange Elizabethan rivalry all those years later? Find out in this Midnight Mystery!

This is a really neat game by Mumbo Jumbo.
It reads like a good mystery movie and plays like a hidden object game. Enjoy!

Hidden objects plus a basic point and click type thing with a nice and spooky theme. And the achievements work on this one. Yay! It all works together reasonably well although at some points as you move through environments which can be completed with only a couple of clicks you do start to wonder why they bothered carefully drawing so many locations. The puzzles are mostly quite simple and if you get stuck you do have the option to skip them, The stacking puzzles were the least fun to play as the physics are a bit wonky and you couldn't rotate the stones but this was a minor annoyance.

By the end of the game I was starting to miss the hidden object side of the game but not to worry as completing the game unlocks a bonus chapter very light on plot and heavy on hidden objects as well as a nice game mode that allows you to find *every* object in the game.

The collectibles are well hidden and there is no freeplay option available so you do need to collect them all as you progress through the game, meaning that you will likely have to play through several times to spot them all.

All in all it's a very nicely put together game and well worth it if you like this genre or fancy something casual to play that doesn't feel cheap.

I have been playing these in order...this one was the best for me so far, 4 hrs playing through with the bonus chapter as well. Fun hidden puzzle game, this one has a few more puzzles of other types for a little variety. Graphics in the "cut scenes" have improved some otherwise very similar style to #2. If you liked Midnight Mysteries 1 and 2 then I would think you would like this one. (If you didn't like the first 2, then this one will not change your mind). There is probably a couple more hours if you try to complete everything (finding all the clovers and then the unlimited hidden object puzzles). On to # 4 now... :)

Fun once through, and then never again. Don't pay more than $2 for this game.

Fun way to spend 5 hours. 3 has substantially more scene "scavenger hunts" (not sure what they're actually called) which are my personal favorite part. These scenes also have started to include more crossword-type puzzles than the earlier games did. The story of Mark Twain and his fictional characters was equally good. The cutscene graphics are good enough here. It's still very linear, but it's worth a few bucks -- as long as you aren't an achievement hunter.
