    All in all, Haunted Houdini is a great entrant into this particular style of game. If you enjoy visual puzzles and an adventure based around occult mystery, then really, head on over to the Steam marketplace and give it a look.

    We find ourselves here again; this time with the fourth instalment of Midnight Mysteries entitled Haunted Houdini! You know what? I’ll beWe find ourselves here again; this time with the fourth instalment of Midnight Mysteries entitled Haunted Houdini! You know what? I’ll be completely honest; I really have a soft spot for these games! They’re simple casual fun to play for a couple of hours on a rainy afternoon! If you enjoy Hidden Object games but are tired of being limited to energy or can’t access a particular level because you’re not high enough ranked… Well, leave them god awful Facebook games behind and just buy one of the Midnight Mysteries in the sales… It combines hidden object games, adventure elements and a great story that makes the genre much more interesting!

    If you do not like point-and-click games, avoid. And even if you do like them, but of the story and character style of Syberia, Broken SwordIf you do not like point-and-click games, avoid. And even if you do like them, but of the story and character style of Syberia, Broken Sword etc., again this may not be for you. It's a screen-scrape game for 50% and puzzles the other 50%, and "find X in this room" can get a bit tedious after the Nth time. However, that said, this game has a fun story, and is executed with panache in terms of visual style and supporting audio. I found myself curious to get to the end, and some levels like the train I particularly enjoyed. Of this genre, this is definitely up in the top category. So why the 7, mainly minuses for very easy puzzles all round, and some dodgy "combine this with that" inventory items also. But for 5 Midnight games for $15 from Steam at the time, making this one $3, I enjoyed my 3 dollars worth here, about 2-3 hours play. In a couple of months, will start another of the Mysteries, which I hope are of similar quality. Expand
