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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
