A good hidden object adventure game with an Edgar Allen Poe storyline. Nothing spectacular, but good graphics and fun casual gaming.

Good point and click hidden object. A follow the ghost style plot. Nicely done.

This game is really just a series of hidden object sets strung together into a thin story. There is no real adventure/mystery game element or much of a break from the pure HO gameplay. Worst of all, I'd say, is that the resolution just isn't good enough to make the HO work very well in the first place.

Ganz nettes Wimmelbildspiel. Der Umfang ist ordentlich. Leider gibt es keine Widescreenauflösung.

Ein altbackendes Wimmelbildspiel mit langweiligen Rätseln und einer öden Geschichte.

Greift auf die Nachfolger zurück wenn ihr so ein Spiel wollt, aber vermeidet dieses Spiel!
4:3 und eine lausige Auflösung unterstützen dabei den Spielspaß nicht wirklich.

Das ganze ist für den Preis doch etwas arg kurz und viel zu leicht. Trotzdem eine bessere Unterhaltung als drei Stunden eine weiße Wand anzustarren...

Das war bisher erst mein 2. Wimmelbild-Spiel....nun und danach hab ich auch keine Lust auf mehr.
Im Gegensatz zum 1. war dieses recht uninspiriert und die sogenannten Rätsel mehr als kinderleicht. Selbst mit mehreren Pausen hatte ich das Ende bereits nach 4 Stunden...wenn man durchgehend spielt dauert es vielleicht 2 Stunden, Wiederspielwert ist gleich Null....lucky me, dass ich das Spiel aus irgendeinem Bundle habe und nicht denn vollen Preis bezahlen musste.

Good search adventure. Works with touch screen, but sometimes using "tools" is best left to touch pad or mouse.
If the Steam version does not work on your system contact Mumbo Jumbo and get the non-steam version.

Typical hidden object game with a light hearted ghostly theme. No choices to make and the hint mechanism means you will not be stuck on any level for long. Familiarity with Poe and his stories will enhance your enjoyment of the game, but are not necessary to complete.

I have to say; had I of played this ‘Midnight Mysteries’ game first (as a supposed to all of its sequels), I would probably have never ended up playing them! This is by far the worst game in the franchise; the inventory management is completely simplified and the puzzles are few and far between! This is basically a collection of Hidden Object scenes played one after the other, where occasional items can be used within that scene to open a box; or feed what looks like a stuffed monkey a banana (yes you read right) to be presented with another item to collect… The game is simple, repetitive, relatively tedious and unfortunately isn’t a well-blended hidden object game; meaning objects like a giant pen will be placed against a wall... This is something the other games really didn’t do too much of and frankly I appreciate the effort… If you’re going to get a Midnight Mysteries game; pass on this and get one of the others instead!

ENG (wersja polska niżej)

This game is a clear case of a brain plug and like every other plug, it should be used to block something: in this particular situation: your brain. Let me explain: one should play a game like this whenever there is too much to think late at night or after work, finding item after item is monotonous and repetitive like digging with a shovel and that’s exactly how I like my hidden object games. And hey! It’s Edgar Allan Poe – it goes great with the whiskey.

It might be surprising that – while the game is only about 300 megs of data – the art is more than solid. The gameplay is exactly what you should expect from a game like that: solve a puzzle here, talk with a lost soul there, find a pickaxe, a cucumber, 2 ribbons, 3 nails and a chinchilla elsewhere. And don’t expect that the story will progress without that chinchilla. Yes, there is a story good enough not to skip (although such option is provided) – or maybe, I was looking for the Poe references?

While it is a solid game, I believe the price tag is set to high. I recommend getting it 75% off and in a pack with the 3 remaining installments of the series which, I must say, are more polished and the adventure – hidden object aspects of these games are better balanced. Edgar Allan’s Mystery is also pretty short – about 3 hours. Is there any reason to return to it later? “Nevermore.”

PL

Seria “Midnight Mysteries” sprawdza się idealnie jako zapychacz mózgu. Dokładnie tak: odnajdowanie konkretnego przedmiotu, potem jeszcze jednego, następnego i tak zapętlone w kółko działa jak przerzucanie ziemi szpadlem – totalnie wyłącza myślenie, i tego właśnie oczękuję od hidden objectów w które gram. Świetne kiedy późno w nocy ma się za dużo rzeczy o których nie ma się ochoty myśleć, albo po paskudnym dniu w pracy. Poza tym to Edgar Allan Poe co automatycznie sprawia że gra świetnie wchodzi z whisky.

Ciekawe że zajmując niecałe 300mb Tajemnica Edgara Allana Poe wygląda naprawdę nieźle. Gra się w to dokładnie tak jak należało by się spodziewać: tu rozwalasz jakąś zagadkę, tam rozmawiasz z duchem, gdzieś indziej odnajdujesz szpadel, ogórek, trzy spinki, dwie kokardki i szynszyla. I nie oczekuj, że historia gry ruszy dalej bez tego szynszyla. A co do historii – jest, nawet na tyle dobra żeby nie przeklikiwać (jest opcja przeskakiwania scenek) większości tekstu. A może tylko szukałem nawiązań do twórczości Poego ?

Podsumowując: Pierwsza odsłona serii jest całkiem solidna – choć 9 euro to jednak za dużo. Najlepiej kupić za -75% w paczce z pozostałymi 3 częściami które, trzeba powiedzieć, są lepiej dopracowane i zbalansowane. Tajemnica Edgara Allana jest też krótka – 3 godziny i po wszystkim. Czy jest po co wracać do gry po ukończeniu wątku fabularnego ? "Nevermore!", zakracze Kruk.

I love find-it hidden object games, and this series was a really nice addition to the genre. The story lines in them are quite interesting and creative, theres four in the series and they were easy to play and complete. i don't even really mean in difficulty either, it's just some of these type of games are boring and become a drag to play, these are actually quite fun. These, and the "Samantha Swift" ones, which i think are actually by the same people.
If you're a fan of the genre, would definitely suggest giving this series a go.

One of my new favorite Hidden object games. I highly recommend it.
Note, typically it will ignore logical descriptions of an object such as using the description"Nail Attacker" in substitution for hammer in some areas of the game... not all. I would not consider that a fault really... just silly.

I love mysteries and I have enjoyed a few mystery games, but I've never really tried out hidden object puzzle games before. This was a nice blend of a mystery with hidden object puzzles. As others have said, it was not difficult and it was impossible to get stuck. Personally, I enjoyed this, as I'm new to the genre. I am currently playing through the second game (Salem Witch Trials), and I've gotten stuck several times. Perhaps that means this game is too easy, but I enjoyed it because I also really enjoyed seeing how the various stories played out and how the different items actually became real clues to the mystery or integrated into the plot. It was very immersive and addictive: I played through the whole thing in one sitting!

I played this through in one sitting, so can confidently state that it is about three hours worth of playing time from beginning to end, give or take a little depending how good you are at hidden object games, if you use hints, and so on. I would not consider it to be worth the price with the short playing time, unless you really love the genre, but having gotten it in a bundle myself I definitely paid less than it was worth, so I can't complain about my cost. In any case, keep an eye out for a sale if you're interested.

As to the gameplay itself, it really is rather straightforward and not terribly challenging. There were only a handful of times when I had trouble finding something or solving a puzzle, only to find that the answer was basically right in front of my face, of course. Fortunately, if you do get stuck there is a hint system you can use to show you where an item is or the next step in a puzzle, so there's no reason for a relaxing game to become at all frustrating. Unfortunately, the ravens that you collect in order to add to your hint total are a little bit too plentiful, so that even using the hints whenever I was getting at all annoyed with the time spent searching, I still finished with ten or so remaining. Also, I would end up using a hint for kind of lame reasons, like not lining the next item in the puzzle up exactly right. In other words, it's a little bit touchy at times. Just remember, what you think is the solution probably is. You just may need to adjust your positioning slightly.

All of this being said, it is rather fun as far as hidden object games go, and that has never been a preferred genre of mine. As an Edgar Allan Poe fan, I found the concept of building the game around the mystery of his death to be intriguing, the overall story quite well done, and the gane performance flawless. I run Windows 8 and had absolutely no issues. So, this is definitely a nice way to have a few relaxing hours of casual gameplay with no time limits or losing or anything, when you're in the mood for that kind of thing.

I didn't like this one as much as the Mark Twain one (which is the only other Midnight Mysteries game I've played so far).
I think this one was the first in the Midnight Mysteries series, and I can see how the series has improved over time.

It's not a long game, I've completed it and logged 4 hours and at least an hour of that time was spent afk.
It's definitely not as well balanced or visually attractive or as in depth as the Mark Twain installment of Midnight Mysteries.
This is predominantly Hidden Object and the few puzzles there are pretty much provide you with the answer so there's little point to them.

I chose recommend for this anyway because I'm not a big player of HO games, (although I do occasionally like ones that have a balanced mix of other things going on throughout to break up the monotony), but I'm sure if you are a hidden object fan then this one is worth adding to your collection, it's not a bad game and as far as the story goes it's still streets ahead of what passes for a story in most other HO games I've played.
Also, I think the fact Mumbo Jumbo recently updated this old game with bug fixes and to ensure compatibility with Windows 8 deserves a thumbs up.

Bought this game for my significant other. When she wanted to play it I tagged along... Usually I'm not into those hidden object kinda games but this one amazed me by its quality. Also, something I did not expect: The story was really entertaining! I actually wanted to know how this one unraveled!!! Surprised? I was...

Grab it for your wife/girlfriend and play it with her... You'll see ;)

Bon pour un premier épisode, il met bien dans l'ambiance. Par contre contrairement aux suivants, il n'y a qu'un mode histoire qui fait environ 3heures.

Fairly straight up Hidden Picture style game. A couple of other puzzles, but not many (and not difficult). Took about 3 hrs to complete with reading all the diary. It was entertaining while it lasted and worth a play through (I doubt I will play though again though).
