A decent puzzle/mystery game

Midnight Mysteries plays just like your standard 'hidden-object games', where you are presented with a image and you need to find out different objects of importance. There are a number of other puzzle mechanics aswell but largely inspired from genre standard. One of the prominent features of the game which i found interesting is the ambiance. Whole mystery is very well directed. Another great feature of the game is its art style, which is amazing and created with a lot of effort. A fun game with over hundred puzzles. Definitely worth a look.

I came to this game not expecting to be impressed, but I gave it a shot anyway. I am glad I did.

The game concerns Poe's ghost asking the player to solve the mystery of his death before he is dragged to Hell. It is not amazingly inspired and deviates little from other hidden-object games, but the writers and designers have infused it with a curious charm.

The graphics will not blow you away and the core mechanic is largely unchanged. The game hangs on its ambiance and it does it well, drawing on the work of Poe without relying on it.

In the end, it is not the most innovative of games, but what it does, it does well.
