Average "Find the Hidden Objects" game with average story and below the average-looking graphics. Yet a friendly, never-boring game that will help you to kill a couple of hours during an eventful day. 6.5/10. No achievements.

Simple hidden object game with a little bit of story. If it's on sale and you like those types of games it's well worth the price. But for a full price I think it's too short (about two hours without even using a hints). Overall the game is fun and sometimes even pretty challenging but don't be afraid you'll never get frustrated because of the hint system and ability to skip puzzles (even thought there are only a few of them).

Pros:
-Fun and relaxing
-A few challenging objects (but if you don't want a challenge you can always use a hint)
-Nice and simple story that ties the game together
-Cheesy voice acting (I think it fits into this type of game)

Cons:
-Too short (for a full price)
-Some objects are hidden in a really cheap way

Mirror Mysteries is a rather mediocre FROG. Personally, I prefer FROGs over HOGs, so I might be a little biased in recommending the game. If you really like the genre, you may give this a try. If not, look elsewhere.
In any case, don't buy this at full price. It isn't worth it. I bought it at a big discount, and I feel I got my money's worth.

The game in detail:

# It has only one game mode. It's fairly easy, and the hint button recharges quickly. There's a random clicking penalty, that doesn't really do much (you can still click; it just makes the screen harder to see).

# The graphics are decent, but not amazing. The HO scenes are clear, and the objects are big enough to be spotted. There's a magnifying glass feature, that I didn't use at all.

# It's quite short. It took me just 1.5 hours to finish it, and I read all the dialogues.

# I've encountered one bug: Whenever a steam message (like "Friend X did Y") popped up, the screen went black. The game didn't crash, though. Minimizing the game and maximizing it again fixed the issue - until the next message showed up.

# The story isn't very engaging. Some evil mirror trapped your kids, and you have to save them by retrieving missing mirror pieces. It felt quite bland to me, but it wasn't too bad. Overall, there isn't much of a story, anyway.

(Note: I can't say anything about sound or VOs, as I played it muted.)

-Recommended Title-

Mirror Myteries is a typical hidden object point and click adventure game. The core of gameplay is finding objects in different locations to solve the mystery and complete the game.

It's a game that tests your observation and memory skills.

The storyline is based around a mother and her children. The children go missing in an big old house they had gone to "adventure" in. The break a mirror, and it's your job to retrieve the pieces and repair the mirror - the rest I'll leave for you to find out.

The graphics are decent - and present well. Don't expect any flashy cut scenes, or mind bending music, or out of this world rendering. It's simply simple. MM can be completed in an evening.

I find playing games such as this in between more had core gaming, a great way to "have a break".

At a couple of bucks to buy, it's worth it if you link hidden object mysteries.

6/10

Fairly straight-forward hidden object game. As others have mentioned, it is shorter than average, and contains no bonus chapter or unlimited mode. Not many mini games, but the ones that are present don't really have directions as to how they play (you can guess but with no feedback or point of reference it makes them a bit more frustrating than they could be). There is a "skip puzzle" option though.

As far as hidden object games go, this one definitely cuts back on the "find random, unrelated things for no reason" aspect, and is not overly easy or difficult. My largest complaint is the ending. The game is creepy and suspenseful and completely let me down. Hard. I streamed this blind and my viewers were also taken aback by the sheer lameness of the ending, both in concept and script. Bottom line: playing through the game is engaging and enjoyable but do it for the sake of doing it, not for any merit in the storyline.

Incredibly easy. I was looking for something casual but I think this is better suited for age 5-7.

OK game. Slightly different HO mechanic, but not very long and little variety.

It was very enjoyable. And it's a great game to just chill out and play in the background. Plus it's only 99p. So no loss there. Very good game, animations could do with a bit of work, and maybe add a few more dimensions as the game was fairly short.

Overall, good game, very enjoyable, welldone developers for making such a great fantasy, puzzle game.

9.5/10 (0.50 because of not so great animations, but thats just my opinion).

This was an alright game on sale for under $2, but I wouldn't pay full price as it's not very replayable. It was more of a mediocre hidden object game with a ridiculously easy puzzle element than a point and click adventure, though. Fun enough to kill a couple of hours, I guess.

Simple hidden-object game. But very short. Worth a play if youc an get it on sale and you like these types of games. But it only takes about 2 hours.

Backgrounds nice, and clear instructions for all scenes. Hint button if you do get stuck, and all puzzles can be skipped.

However, let down by its short length, and very simplistic story.

The graphics are good and it is good to see a fun point and click game.
Sadly, if you play without hints or clicking like a maniac, you will finish the game in 2 hours.

Decent little story and easy point & click adventure. Only takes about two hours to finish. Worth it if you can get it on sale. Graphics are decent and presentation is done well.

I'm a sucker for hidden object games. My naughty children broke a magic mirror, which then stole them. I had to piece the mirror back together by helping the many characters who had found the shards. Took a couple of pleasant hours. No real puzzles, and very simple finding the various objects. But that's what I wanted from a game like this.

Fairly straight forward game. Around two hours of content. Fun enough but not a deep experience.

I liked the game and wanted more of it, but completed it in 116 minutes. That isn't even a full two hours of gameplay. The first three tasks were original, the others felt ripped off from a certain book series involving Lions, Witches and Wardrobes.
This is a tough one to review, can't recommend it to adult friends as they would also be aggravated that it was so short. Maybe for young children....

Quite dumb and easy, but still fun and nice-looking. For short time relax: perfect. But... if you are searching for something with good story/atmosphere, stay away. 5/10
