You're passing time with your children when a strange thing happened: they've broken a magical mirror and the only way to free them is to restore it by travelling to other worlds through mirrors to track down all of the shards...

Mirror Mysteries is a hidden object game mainly, meaning that each scene you'll visit will have a list of items to find. Some of them can't be obtained before gathering other items in other locations. And that's what you will do everytime: find objects, place some on the scene because they're missing, head to another location, repeat the same thing and solve one or two puzzles thrown at you.

While this gameplay is interesting, I had a major problem: some items are so hard to find because they're partially hidden by the end of the screen or they're so well matched with the background that you don't see them. However, you have a visual indicating that it can be found as they're not in grey and as the game doesn't tell you that you're done with the location. And sometimes, some of the active areas aren't really highlighted, meaning that you don't know what to do in the scene. After a while, it's boring and frustrating.

Even if the plot makes sense, I would have expected more background on the mirror or on the worlds you're travelling to. You end up running from the mansion with the kids, which is expected but you don't know nothing about the mirror.

The graphics are acceptable though I found them a little too... dead. I mean that I was under the impression that there was like a grey filter on nearly each location and I find that it was adding frustration to find items. The soundtrack and voice acting is ok, particularly the voice of the mirror.

I know that Mirror Mysteries isn't a recent hidden object game, however, I feel like that there are better out there. I didn't really enjoy this one and I'm wondering how the sequel will be, if there is any improvement. Anyway, sadly, for Mirror Mysteries, it's a big no from me. I suggest you to look at other games, like Mystery P.I. or Mystery Case Files.

Mirror Mysteries is a brief, diverting Hidden Object Game (HOG) with a pleasant string of scenes hung lightly on a threadbare plot: just the thing for two+ hours of easy action without too much fretting.

You're a mom (of course) on a road trip with your two kids. You pull off the highway to rest and eat in front of an oddly-shaped house - NOT A SMART MOVE - and wake from your after-picnic nap to find the kids gone. Inside the house is some sort of humorless spirit who has trapped little Tommy and Sophia (or whatever their names are, this is not a character piece) in a magic mirror, after they went and broke the other mirrors set around the room. Why are your kids breaking into empty houses and smashing the mirrors in there, anyway? This is a question for other games.

Seven mirrors need to be entered and fixed, seven short adventures unfold in the magic worlds within. Mirror Mysteries' puzzles interact with the environments in a comfortable way. You'll have a scene and some sets of things to find, and completing each set gives you an object to either place back in the scene or to stash for use in another location inside that mirror. I got stuck a few times with cunningly-hidden items, mostly things stuck behind other things, but for the most part the finding is easy and linear. This is not really a challenging game, and it hits a happy groove of clicking things along and moving the action forward.

Good art, made in medium-res. Very good voicing, much less bland than the HOG usual. Simply framed, and executed properly. I was a little amused and a little put off to note that much of what your character does is housework - tidying up, sewing buttons on a leprechaun's vest, this sort of thing - but really that's what a lot of adventure-lite plots boil down to in the end. "I am a fearsome spirit from beyond, poised to destroy your family unless you can complete these terrible tasks." "OK, but this place is a mess. How can you even FIND anything in here?" I chose to read it as a tongue-in-cheek thing, though that probably wasn't the intent.

Your kids are trapped inside a magical sentient mirror and will not release them until you travel into worlds to retrieve the missing mirror pieces.

So you are on vacation or something and you decided to rest at some random abandoned house (the worst decision shes ever made, she should not have children) and falls asleep, when she awakes, she finds that her kids are stupid and shattered a bunch of magical mirror leading to different dimensions and the ruler of these worlds has has her children locked inside him.

There are 9 worlds to travel into, each being different in nature and items, giving some personality to the game.

The game primarily consists of finding items and placing them into different areas inside the individual worlds, so in summary this is an advanced version of the old I-Spy books. You will get about 2 hours of gameplay.

I found it slightly grinding after the first couple levels, as its the same thing over and over. I was hoping for more puzzles and different games to be played to mix up the constant looking for things. The tutorial does a good job teaching you what to do and how to do it, and if your ever frustrated at not finding certain well hidden items, there is a hint button you can press to reveal the next item.

The main reason I am not recommending this game is that the price is much too high for so little content, 12$ is incredibly high for only 2 hours of gameplay, and holds zero replay value (this changes if you have kids or other friends and family members who like these games and can play them on your account) for most people. Its worth 5$ for what you get, the price tag is just too high. Thankfully I got the game for 1$ on a mega sale last summer, so it was worth the 2 hours.

Personal Rating: 2.5/5

Very Short point and click hidden object. As in I beat this in under 5 hours and I spent half that time doing real life stuff and not playing short. Simple plot. But the puzzels are good, midlevel difficulty. The voice acting isn't unpleasent. The graphics are good. It's just really short and there's no replayability.

I got it on holiday sale for less than a buck, and that's what it was worth.

A decent HOG in my opinion.

I wouldn’t say that this is the most popular of genres when it comes to games and I would say they are usually rated pretty low because of that fact.
The genre within itself is pretty cheesy. The stories are usually quite silly, making excuses as to why you have to find a load of junk amongst more junk and generally being pretty lame. But I amongst a lot of other people actually enjoy these games. They are a guilty pleasure for me I must admit. I used to sit and play them with my mum, seeing as they really are the middle aged woman’s kind of game.

With all that said when it comes to playing and rating hidden object games, I usually tend to just rate them by how bearably cheesy they are. This one being pretty bearable.

The story is interesting and compared to what I have seen of other HOGs, is a bit more logical.
I guess?
Most HOGs, you’re a detective or investigator of some sort looking for clues to solve a case, at least that’s a popular one, but even then in those cases you are just collecting random bits of crap. You know, a tooth brush, some hamster hair, a spade and a packet of hobnobs, calling them “clues” and wah-la! We’ve found the killer!
No, no. In Mirror Mysteries you’re searching for pieces of a mirror, scattered through different worlds and realms. There is of course the obligatory point and click “I’m not going to just straight up give you what you are looking for, first YOU need to do something for ME” so you end up solving a lot of other people’s problems to. But still, as far as HOGs go… at least it makes more sense. Which was nice!

The whole find/place mechanic in this game is something I liked also. You can jump in and out of scenes easily and in some cases need to jump back and forth to proceed. It’s not at all tedious, it’s actually a bit of fresh air. HOGs usually have a set screen, you solve that screen entirely before moving on. This at least gives you a bit of freedom to do more than one thing at once. Or at least, it feels that way. It’s nice this genre of game not being so linear for once! I like it!

Like many HOGs the resolution for this game is a bit low. It’s never been an issue for me, the genre itself just looks old and dated so low res has never bothered me. But I have noticed in reviews that a lot of other people take this very seriously! So just to warn ya!

Apart from that and the game being fairly short (which I sometimes, especially with HOGs, I actually like) all in all I would say this is a decent game. If you are a fan of the genre I would say definitely give this a try. Although I haven’t played the second one yet. Should be interesting!

TL;DR: As far as HOGs go, decent story, nice mechanics, bit short (I completed it in an hour), low res but generally a good game. Go for it.

For anyone interested, My Review for Mirror Mysteries 2:
