The hints are in the form of ravens that are hidden in and out of the hidden object scenes. There are also hidden clovers; the goal is to collect 70 of them over the course of the game. In addition, pieces of objects that need to be combined to add tools to your inventory are scattered about. The hidden object scenes are not straightforward either as you have to poke around in a drawer or trunk within the scene to find some things, and some of the objects are not named but described in riddle form.In the previous two Midnight Mysteries I thought the mini-games were a little too easy, but they have definitely stepped it up with Devil. This is the first game Ive encountered in awhile where some of the games were not only challenging, but I had to figure out how to play them in the first place. The games I especially enjoyed was one with a maze that took place over three floors of a theater, and one where you play a game of pool. The most unique was one that was a take-off on the game Battleship where you have to figure out where hidden ships are located in a port.The artwork in this game is superior, and the ghosts are especially convincing. Some of the scenes are spectacular including one that is a birds-eye view looking down into a dismal paupers cemetery that is overrun with rats. A journey through an underground catacomb is very creepy. The only area where I thought they fell down on was the depiction of the Devil himself.So now for the crazy, and that is the telling of the story. All three MM games are based onfacts in each authors life. This game is crammed with a bunch of facts and events in Mark Twains life. The main two plotlines seem to be Twains guilt over the death of his brother, and his failing fortunes after he theorized that Shakespeare did not author his own work. The action goes back and forth between Mark Twains day and the England of Shakespeares time with a cast of thousands including Tom Sawyer, Macbeths witches, Nikola Tesla, Christopher Marlowe, and of course, the Devil. Its pretty interesting, but sometimes becomes so convoluted that youre not sure whats going on, and more importantly where to go next.You do get a journal and even a task list to help out, though.Having said all that, I think anyone can still appreciate the effort and imagination that the game developers put into this and the other MM games. I wrote reviews of the other two games in which I was somewhat dismissive of the elaborate plots, but now from the perspective of playing dozens of games with lame storylines I have a new appreciation of what is in front of me here.Mark Twain is a fascinating character and I enjoyed learning more about him. Maybe a woman author the next time? How about Virginia Woolf? Read more › Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

Farmer Verified Purchase I bought this game after reading the glowing reviews from other people. It is fun but there are very few scenes where you are actually looking for hidden objects. Most of your scenes are solving puzzles and putting items together. Not really what I was looking for. 1 Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

It is a good mixture of story, puzzles and hidden objects. I found the puzzles challenging, but not so challenging that I skipped them, though that is an option after a certain amount of time. It can be a little scary. I have an 11 year old that likes to play with me, but she thought this one was too scary. There are areas where a ghost, or a creepy devil face pops. There are also a lot of creepy ghost. Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

Had some visual clipping problems with the cursor on my Win 7 system that was annoying but game was a pleasure but to short. The atmosphere of the game was very nice.

The game is interesting and historically based. The puzzles are generally easy but though provoking in determining what it is that you have to do to solve them. The graphics are good with the description of the object that you are looking for being part of the challenge.Well done and worth the money. Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?
