Great game of puzzles. Most are easy, but some are a challenge at the right time.

The voice acting is horrible. No wonder they have an achievement just to watch the whole thing without skipping. No one would watch them otherwise...

Nice game to get 100% achievements on and not too much work getting either.

It is pretty much your average point and click adventure game with hidden object games and puzzles, I still enjoyed playing it though as I do have a fondness for point and click games, also our good friend Sherlock Holmes.

Point and click games mixed with an array of HOG’s and puzzles may be a genre that is particularly famous on Facebook, but constantly needing to upgrade buildings or invite new neighbours to progress are a severe annoyance that makes me despise the Facebook efforts! So, to experience a casual point and click in the same style as ‘Midnight Mysteries’ made ‘Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles’ a fairly enjoyable experience… Unfortunately the story is absolutely tripe involving elements of time travel through a mounted wolfs head, but if you do enjoy a casual point and click puzzle game then this could very well be the title you are looking for!

Pretty decent Hidden objects game with buetiful scenery and and nice puzzles. If you need short game for relax and you are fed up of all those FPS and MOBA, it could be game for you.

As in a genre, this game isn´t the best, but certainly is must have for each HO collector.
I am looking forward to see more like them on steam.

Another HOG title from Frogware and another based around Sherlock Holmes. Any hard-headed fan of the books should probably stop and not look too hard at the plot here which bases itself around mystical murders, summoning, magic, dimension hopping and ghostly goings on. Its less Sherlock and more Doctor Who style of a story.

In any case I probably should talk about the gameplay, the whole thing plays as a mix between an Adventure title and a casual Hidden Object game. As such theres a good amount of scenes where you have to scour for items, however theres also a good amount of puzzles to back the whole thing up. Theres nothing too difficult here but the scenes are varied and colourful enough and the game runs by at a fast enough pace to avoid players being too bored.

Essentially if you dont mind the odd Hidden Object title, its one to pick up. If you cant stand Hidden Object titles however, theres nothing for you here. I think thats about as simple as I can put it.
