  • Almost Impossible To Solve Due To Glitches And Those With Poor Eyesight

    By Yamamax
    The storyline and concept of time travel is a great idea. However, to find all the items in the hidden object scenes you must use an magnifying glass to see some of the items. I have 20/15 vision and do not need reading glasses. Having to examine a full scene with a magnifying glass gets very tiring to the point that search is no longer fun. Fixing the time machine in the bonus game is frustrating. You must put the pliers and the screwdriver at the exact point (must be the exact pixel) to get them to repair the time machine. There is no need for this as we know what to do, so do not make us have to pick up the tools and click and search for the exact position in order to get the tools to work. If I had known the game has these glitches and one has to have a magnifying glass at hand I would not have purchased the game. I do not recommend!!!!!

    I got most of the way through this game and it suddenly went south showing error when I tried to change time zones. Very frustrating. This is the second time a game from this company has stalled at some point and not able to recover.

  • Not Their Best Work

    I’ve played most of Artifex Mundi’s games available on the iTunes store now and most of them are fantastic; beautiful animation, engaging storylines, and puzzles that are challanging but not rocket science. This one just flat out didn’t make any sense. Usually you can figure out where you need to go because the plot will help you along with what you need to accomplish and you can really immerse yourself in the world of the game. This one just had a really bland, nonsensical plot line that made it difficult to navigate. I used the hint button in this one more than any other hidden objects game. The ending leaves you at a weird cliffhanger that doesn’t really make any sense. We even tried playing Time Mysteries 3 and the ending still isn’t really resolved. They had a great idea with the time traveling thing, but they didn’t realy utilize it very much. It would’ve been cooler if they focused a little less on the mansion and the one random house in Venice and instead tried some different time periods to explore. The animation is pretty, I guess, but that’s about all I can say for this one.
  • Great Game but no resets!!!!

    Game was really fun. Even the Object finds were done in the period. Beautiful artwork. Although there were a tone of Object Find scenes, the puzzles took a bit of throught to work through them; to figure out what to do. Through trial and error, was able to work through all of them except the last two - the Brass Leaves puzzle and the Glass pipes. Neither should have been difficult, but both didn’t allow me to reset the errors. With the brass leaves puzzles, in trial and error - I switched the green rings to the green symbols and brown to brown. That effectively stopped progression and I couldn’t reset it to begin again. The pipe puzzle had 5 broken pieces to stop your progress. When I checked out the “walkthroughs” and hints, all of those only had 4 broken areas to stop progress. So, don’t know what the problem was. I skipped those two. Other than that, I enjoyed it and the story. The time piece was a clever way to jump various scenes.
  • Beautiful and Interesting but...

    This game was so beautiful and interesting and the story line was fun. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the time machine. The hidden object screens were very well done and sometimes rather tricky (in a good way). However, here comes the "buts." There wasn't instructions for the mini-games. There were a couple of them that I had to find walk-through online to know what to do. The hint button was worthless in many cases. As well done as I thought the hidden object screens were, there were way too many of them. Thank goodness for the toggle game that could be played instead of the HOS's. Although I had some issues with this game, I really did enjoy it. It truly is one of my favorite games that I have ever played… and I have played a lot of them. The beauty and imagination that went into the production of this game made it well worth the money.
  • too much search and find

    I really liked it but lay of the search and find
  • Kinda Disappointed

    If ‘all’ you want to do is play HOS’, then this game is for you. For me, however, I enjoy the puzzles interspersed in a timely way in amongst the HOS’. Here there are phases where you can’t find a game to save yourself. I DO NOT like HOS games that require playing as many as three or four HOS’ in a row before anything else happens other than navigating between them. The artistry could be better and it seemed like the developer artists decided to darken some of the objects so severely rather than graphically meld them into a group of other objects. For someone like myself whose eyes aren’t what they used to be had a difficult time with a lot of them. The games themselves were, in general, understandable, but clearly whoever wrote the directions decided to overgeneralize. They RARELY fully explained the correct route to the answer. Why? I have no idea. Definitely a minus for the game. That said, there are some positives including a distinctly different, time machine-esque navigation device, and the ability to virtually reduce any “wait time” for HINT regeneration, which for me allowed me to fight off the incessant HOS scenes. I play a lot of these games - at least three or four a week - so I’m always looking for good ones. When I find one I like I save it and play it again three or four months later when I’ve forgot much of the hints and games. This one won’t make it to that list. Sorry, developers. I see a lot of really nice touches, which, if the project managers would utilize more extensively, would no doubt create a far more robust experiences.
