Another hidden object adventure game in the Midnight Mysteries series. This time we follow Houdini intertwined with a little bit of Sir Conan Arthur Doyle. You are trying to find out who has killed Houdini and why he died. Another decent hidden object game. Definitely worthwhile of playing. Good graphics and decent mix of puzzle and hidden object scenes.

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.

Essentially a very easy graphic adventure mixed with a hidden object game. I suspect given Houdini's attitude towards mediums that being portrayed as a ghost along with his wife would probably not have sat well with him. On the other hand as a fun story with conspiracies it serves its purpose well enough. There is some nice usage of actual historical records/places and of course some very heavy artistic licence!

Good point and click hidden object. Also like the rest of the seires a follow the ghost style, only draw back to this one is how unPoe like Poe acts. It's not too bad though.

As far as hidden object games go, this one is excellent. The interface/gameplay is good, the art is good (if a tad amateurish in places), and, most remarkably, there is an engaging story that also teaches you a few interesting things about the subject matter (in this case Houdini, Conan Doyle, and their interaction with Spiritualism).

It's a casual game with limited replay value, but there's nothing wrong with that.
