Finished my 4th Midnight Mystery and must say I enjoyed this one the best. Very similar to #3 in the amount of hidden picture puzzles, other "logic" puzzles and story. Graphics remain very similar as well. Ran a bit over 4 hours to get through the main story and the bonus chapter. I would guess there is likely another hour or two in the bonus content...possibly a little more if you go for all the achievements. The story was light, but overall fun. I think these mysteries also do a great job of letting you get "Unstuck" if needed with both the in game strategy guide and the numerous hints allowed.

Again, I would recommend if you like this type of game or are looking for something casual. If you did not like the other's in this series, I don't think this one would change your mind.

Another in the series of lunch or break time point and click mysteries on rails. This one had more complex puzzles than the past three, but even the hardest were doable in a couple minutes. The scavenger hunt scenes were good as always. MM4 seemed to have a nagging lag in object activation and in some animations -- it's not enough to be unplayable but it is noticeable for me. Lastly, the story was...ok. It seemed like a stretch at times, but it was good enough for a few bucks. 6/10

The Midnight Mysteries series contains some of my favorite hidden object games. These are the more typical hybrid type games, that have some adventure elements (puzzles, moving between locations, talking to people) as opposed to the find-objects-only style.

Midnight Mysteries are interesting in that they are based on real historical events, then add some fictional what-ifs to fill in blanks or give alternate explanations for known events. As a result, not only are the fun as a game but they spark some interest in reading about the real events on Wikipedia.

MM4 goes into the death of Harry Houdini and proposes a little mystery, that maybe the accident that sped up his death was actually intentional, and if so, who wanted to kill him.

A decent hidden object/adventure game. Some decent puzzles. Story is kinda ehh. But a decent way to waste some time if you can get it cheap.
