FANTASTIC HIDDEN OBJECT PUZZLE ADVENTURE GAME FROM THE CREATORS OF ENIGMATIS AND GRIM LEGENDS! Time Mysteries 3: The Final Enigma is the epic finale to the time-travelling adventure series. In the face of the looming magical cataclysm, Ester Ambrose has to fight to save her future once again.
Destroying Viviana's crystal tomb was supposed to turn Ester Ambrose's fight against evil powers into nothing more than a distant echo of her past, a faint memory of a nightmare never to befall her again.
However, the most difficult and dangerous, but also the most fascinating, part of the story is yet to begin for the Ambrose family heiress. To save the future, she has to face the past on another journey through time and space.

I own several games from this company and I like them all a lot. This is a mystery game with hidden objects and puzzles to solve. There is a good hint button to help you along. The app also has a time machine the help you locate which scene to move to where something needs to be done. When you press on the year buttons, scenes that have something that needs your attention have an exclamation mark on the map. When you touch the room the scene pops up in a small circular window and when you touch the window you are immediately are taken there. It is much faster than manually moving back and forth between rooms. Items that need your attention sparkle occasionally to help you locate them.
The graphics are excellent and the sound and animation are also exceptional. I rated this app at 5 stars and I had a lot of fun playing it. It took me about 8 hours of app play with interruptions to finish it. It is worth the money to buy this app.

The app uses Amazon InApp Billing but I was never asked to purchase anything in the app except another game if I wanted. It also used Amazon Insights which is an analytics program that tracks your in app behavior and location. I was asked several times to post a 5 star review but I did not respond as I wanted to finish the game to see how much I enjoyed playing it.
The app installed into my device memory and I manually moved it to my SD card. It left 23.70MB in my device memory and it used 2.83M of device memory after I had played the entire app. It transferred 299MB to my SD card and it used another 73KB for data.
This game was perfect for me with the right mix of interactive puzzles and objects, hidden objects games and a good mystery. I enjoyed the time machine aspect. I did play at the regular level which gives you the sparkles on where to look and found most things logical in terms of figuring out how to use objects. There were a few HOB games where the resolution was not HD or it was too dark and I could not find some objects without hints. I liked the story and didn't have any technical problems or difficulty playing because I had not played the two earlier Time Mystery games #1 and #2 - so it is not necessary to play the other games before playing this one. Very experienced players who routinely play these types of games at expert level probably will find this game too easy. One complaint even I have is that there were often not more than a few interactive puzzles, objects, or HOB games in a room and sometimes you only needed to do a few things which I'm not used to after playing some other more complex games where you had to tap every object in a place - this game you don't have to do that. Tip: once you start using the time machine you can click on the date buttons to view maps of each place to see what action is needed, and jump directly to a place. Some going back and forth but not annoying. Had fun playing this one and it was a free download from Amazon this week. Enjoy! But again is probably too easy for players who play at the most difficult settings.
Like the second installment of the Time Mysteries series, this third and final chapter is very well done. About the only criticism I have of either (leaving out the much-less-good first installment) is weak voice acting on the part of the main character (sadly typical of h.o. adventure games), and a lack of variety in the music, which is somewhat hard-driving and ominous, and out of place in some spots. Also, it's used in both the second and third games, which I rather liked for continuity, but it did get a little old. On the other hand, there are some scenes that have music that's so lovely and sweet, I'm seriously looking to see if I can find it for purchase somewhere!
Anyway, great game, great series (except for the first, which is still worth doing, if expectations are kept low), and highly recommended!
Edited to add: Check out the extras for fun, interesting background info on the various characters, locations, and tech used. You can tell the devs had fun filling in those details. Oh, and also, I should have mentioned in the main part of my review that the conclusion of the story totally does not work, when one considers the time-travel angle. That's a definite weakness. I didn't let it bother me too much; I suspect writing coherent time-travel stories is wickedly difficult. But it would have been nice if it had all made sense in the end.
These p&c ho games usually frustrate the hell out of me with all the barely solvable minigames and all the wasted time spent going back & forth a thousand times to accomplish one objective but THIS game is simply wonderful! I must confess, though, I did have to skip a couple minigames until I discovered a toggle option bottom left when the minigame is on. You can actually press this and play a different kind of minigame which is a GREAT OPTION! Wish I discovered it before I skipped any of them. There is an interactive map that bypasses all the usual back & forth. THANK YOU, DEVS! This alone takes most of the frustration out of the equation. The story is pretty good, though you can skip those scenes if you want. I watched them all. They aren't too long and are informative.
Based on how badly I usually fare with this genre of game I would not have bought it for $4.99 but I got it for FREE so I tried it out. I'm so glad I did. And I must add that had I known about the ever-so-helpful map, I may actually been tempted to buy it. Well worth the time spent solving since there is not a lot of purposeless running back & forth looking for things. GREAT GAME!
