Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Down by the deep and muddy Mississippi, something’s not right. A ghostly riverboat brings to light a new conspiracy for players to unravel in this all-new Midnight Mystery.

Mark Twain’s ghost has come to you seeking help from an evil that has been stalking him in the afterlife. Trace the steps in Twain’s past that led to a lifetime of anguish. Twain’s passion for literary history reignites a controversial debate about the true identity of Shakespeare; the age-old question resurrects a series of malevolent characters. After waking an unexpected evil, Twain sets about to rid his time of the darkness, but the plot only thickens. With Twain’s help, you have to unravel the connections to try and set history straight while dangerous forces loom.

Who wrote the works of Shakespeare? And just how did Mark Twain get caught up in a strange Elizabethan rivalry all those years later? Find out in this Midnight Mystery!

  • Complete all-new adventure missions by searching through hidden objects for tools, collecting additional tools to solve brain-teasing puzzles and interviewing apparitions from the past
  • Figure out the connection between humorist Twain and the Elizabethan Shakespeare
  • Detailed hint system to help you at any step along the way

    4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy good August 1, 2011
    By PCCnyc
    Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi is the third in a series of games involving a famous dead author, in this case Mark Twain.

    There's a lot going on in this game. 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 I've 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 pauper's 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 on(at least mostly)facts in each author's life.

    3.0 out of 5 stars not much of a seek and find December 22, 2011
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best August 12, 2011
    By Zippy
    Verified Purchase
    I have become addicted to this "casual adventure' games, and this is one of the best. 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A visual and time and place treat. December 19, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this low price entry. 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A well done and interesting adventure. August 14, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I agree with the PCCnyc review. 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Game October 4, 2011
    By Swanie
    Verified Purchase
    While this game, Devil on the Mississippi, isn't one of my all time favorites (like Snark Busters or Magic Encyclopedia), it certainly kept me interested and I have played it several times. I also liked that it was a good length. The graphics were good and it's one of those games that's not too hard and not too easy. I like games like this one that are more interactive and I would recommend it.

    It's ok as casual game. No option for level of play. Plenty of hints. Small enough to do in one night if you're determined but I took a few evenings. Very linear. Read more
