BRILLIANT!! Intellectually superior to other similar games

Logic lunatic

Mumbo Jumbo does with perfection what other game creators do with mediocrity. Their concept and game design is spectacular! The text/dialog is intelligent and artfully crafted. Their stories are an exquisite work of historical fiction beautifully woven together from threads of historical fact and related classic literature. The way the literary biographies entwine with the lives of their character counterparts is nothing short of genius!

The gameplay is second to none. The graphics are beyond breathtaking and, along with the music, integrate seamlessly with the story. But it is the sheer artistry of the storyline itself that makes this the MOST EXCITING, MAGICAL game experience I have ever encountered. I would give this game TEN stars out of five, were it possible to do so.

Mumbo Jumbo: PLEASE, PLEASE keep 'em coming! Each game is a unique and elegant work of art, and unfortunately, they have elevated my standards to the degree that I find similar games from other developers to be greatly lacking by comparison.

Is Edgar Allen Poe a possible contender for one of the literary authors? I know there was casual reference made to him in the first game.

With the utmost respect,
Logic Lunatic

Very good game, loved it. But… don't buy the additional content!


Loved the "story mode" game. Beautiful graphics. Some of the puzzles were a little easy but then some were on the difficult side. So it balanced out. Overall I liked the game a lot. And I will play the next one in the series.

But…. DO NOT BUY the additional content for $1.99. Complete waste of money. The "panic room" is senseless. And I thought the "deleted scenes" would be additional hidden objects play. It wasn't. It was just pictures of supposedly deleted scenes. And the "easter eggs" I guess you have to go back into story mode and find them or something. I didn't bother. Not worth the $1.99 at all.

💀 💀MM: Salem Witch Trials; Lovely, Mysterious 🔥🔥


I always know when I'm playing a MM game: Deeply immersed in game play, glancing at the clock tells me it's 2 a.m...long past my bedtime!
The only complaint I have about this game is having to go outside the game to view the Strategy Guide. Also, I'd rather purchase the Strategy Guide bundled with the game, as opposed to buying separately.
I love having the raven as my companion-helper and am even happy to see that crotchety black cat on the rare occasions she appears.
Blending historical fact with fantasy certainly captures my fancy. This game is a delight with its dark atmosphere, mournful landscapes and moodiness. Wonderful for a winter's night.
