What's New in Version 1.0.3
Minor bug fixes and update to 'More Games' functionality.
Compatible with iPads? or NOT?
i played this straight thru completely. liked much of it, but several of the puzzles can't be worked as written (i.e. removing colored bars - the riveted ones fall off) and all need reworking. it clearly states it is for iPad, but i can understand the frustration. you really need to debug this game, seriously! it has great potential.
that said, once you go to a spot within the story, often you can never go back, even if instructed to. many solutions must come from hints, as the oblects you are to use can't be collected. you're supposed to collect all locks, keys, and handcuffs, yet many cannot be picked up at all - touching them does nothing, you can't collect them.
since you're supposed to be able to play the game with no hints or help, to gain 'achievements', i decided to replay the game from the beginning and try harder. i found myself abruptly in Montreal with none of what i needed in my inventory, and no way to return to the searchable scene that was skipped! i had to exit the game and abandon what was achieved. this does not encourage me to spend more money on expanded modes of gameplay. some of the hints are useless, too, please play tour own game and fix these problems! you'd sell more than 150 copies or whatever, if you did.
My only complaints are that there are times when you tap on something and it won't accept the click, and that there are gaps in the game's logic that require you to use the help to figure out what to do next, because there seems to be no direction left. It is designed very much like the other Midnight Mysteries, and, so far, I like them all. I wish that it would tell you if there are clovers in a scene, as well, and that you need to click them first because they disappear when you finish a section. I left a few till the end, but couldn't get to them because I was locked out once the task was done.
The puzzles are okay and the graphics are beautiful. I like the historical links used in these games, as well. Worth the sake price.
Love these Games
I have really enjoyed the Midnight Mysteries series and am looking forward to more. The graphics are very well done and I love the story lines. In fact, I have found myself researching the story topics after finishing the games. On occasion I did have a problem getting the game to accept the proper clue after a number of tries and found myself unnecessarily using a clue, but overall the game was great fun and well worth the price.
