About This Game

Building on the successes of their award-winning Midnight Mysteries adventure series, MumboJumbo has created an all-new adventure franchise. Boasting interactive backgrounds, story-driven puzzles, an animated main character, voice acting and a rich narrative filled with twists and turns, Angelica Weaver: Catch Me When You Can is action-packed and sure to be another hit!

Angelica Weaver, a detective on Chicago’s Special Task Force, must use her renowned deductive skills to stop a present day killer. The only way for her to get ahead of this killer is to first identify a murderer who escaped justice over a hundred years ago. Angelica has the ability to connect with the dead. Through supersensory visions she is able to jump back and forth between crime scenes on the streets of historic London and present-day Chicago where the victims reveal to her their final moments. Work with Angelica as she puzzles her way through the past and uses her insights to stop the pattern in the future in this hidden object puzzle adventure.

Angelica actively participates as you explore detailed environments and sift through hidden-object scenes for clues. Using Angelica’s journal and a highly developed hint system, close the case in the present and in the past, by piecing together game-changing information for an unexpected twist.

Angelica Weaver’s intriguing story is complemented with stunning visuals and sound effects that captivate and surprise. This compelling adventure, full of challenges and dozens of unique puzzles, delivers yet another thrilling experience from MumboJumbo.

Hidden object games have come a long way from their iSpy/Highlights inspired roots, branching off from simply searching for random objects in a scene of junk into something more akin to a casual adventure game. Angelica Weaver is an exceptional example of this, blending traditional adventure and HOG gameplay into an enjoyably ridiculous murder mystery, all held together with impressively high production values.

Catch Me When You Can follows Chicago detective Angelica Weaver, on the case for a serial killer that seems to be copying a series of murders that occurred a hundred years ago. For reasons never quite explained, Weaver can revisit scenes from the past, and in doing so begins to piece together both the murders from the past and how they tie in with the present. It's predictably convoluted and ultimately leads to a rather silly and anticlimactic ending, but on the whole it's just compelling enough to keep you entertained.

A bit more frustrating is its often confusing puzzle logic and consistent inability to properly communicate where you need to go. I'd often find myself clicking randomly around the screen hoping to trigger something I'd missed before, only to find I needed to travel several screens back and use a random object to obtain another random object which somehow let me progress past where I was. It's not so awful as to make me quit the game, but it's annoying to have to rely on the hint system so often when it should be a last resort used for particularly challenging puzzles.

Although perhaps not a showcase of the absolute best HOGs have to offer, Angelica Weaver is on the whole a rather enjoyable (if occasionally overly self indulgent in both its story and illogical logic) casual adventure that is almost completely satisfying once you look past some of its more persistent issues. Though I doubt we will ever see a direct sequel, I wouldn't object if Mumbo Jumbo continued with this style and quality of HOGs, which are if nothing else miles ahead of most games of the genre.

MumboJumbo's HOG games are top notch. If you already play HOG games, then you probably already know that.

If you're one of those people who haven't really tried them but look down upon them automatically as a non-game or something overly casual, consider giving one a try. I did, and I was hooked.

HOG games are great when you're just looking to take a relaxing break and not for something that will raise your adrenaline or stress your brain too much.

I posted this review on the Angelica Weaver title arbitrarily, but the others I've played are of comparable quality. Midnight Mysteries is a great series as well.

This is by far the best hidden object genre game I've ever played. What sets it so far above the rest? It has a wonderful story about a clairvoyant female detective chasing a serial killer through time, and all the puzzles are fun. I think the devs did a great job of integrating the puzzles with the story. I really enjoyed the back and forth through time mechanic, and I found the main character to be really likeable. The few times that I got stuck were because something had changed that I didn't notice at first, but usually it was a very logical progression, which was nice. It's a shame there are no Steam achiements since there are cool achievements in game. Also, when you complete the game, you unlock a bonus chapter that totally twists the ending.
