I didn't know about this glitch, Ana; fortunately it didn't happen to me, but I have taken note of it for when I play the game again. thanks

I unfortunately did not either and I am hoping they make a patch that will give the item back to me because I really want to finish it.

I was really enjoying the game by the way and thought it it to be a great addition to the MCF series.

Hi, Ana!

Thanks for the heads up! I'm not quite halfway through the game, so I'll be sure to follow your advice when I arrive at that task because, as much as I'm enjoying the game, I don't really want to start over in order to see the ending.

I just heard from the CS and the update on the 28th was suppposed to have fixed that. Unfortunately, it does not give it back to you, it just prevents it from disappearing. I guess this may be one MCF I never finish, I am totally bummed.

I just found another glitch (I think). Early in the game I went to the quarry and picked up the wrench. I didn't use it right away and it disappeared from my inventory. Now I'm finished with the regular part of the game and am starting the CE portion which I think takes part in the quarry but with no wrench, I can't proceed. Is there something I'm missing here? I don't know if the quarry is actually the CE portion or not. If it was part of the regular game, where is the CE portion?

I did love the game but, as you can see, I'm a bit confused at the moment.

Barb, the quarry level with the safe and the morphing objects is the bonus gameplay. wave12

Thanks, Marian. Guess I won't be able to play the bonus because I picked up the wrench early in the game and it vanished from my inventory. Now, I can't get into the shed in the quarry. Bummer!! Up until now, I really, really loved the game.

Barb, if the morphing objects have already opened up for you, then I believe it's not necessary to go back to the quarry when the main game has ended; I think it was only important during the main game - being able to get into the quarry and having access to morphing objects constitutes the gameplay bonus for the Collector's Edition, as far as I know. Sorry if I confused you. wave12

I'm confused about the Bonus Content as well I finished the game, but hadn't found morphimg objects. So, I went back to complete the safe puzzle im the quarry and got the mask I then went back through all locations and found all morphing objects. Now what?

I think that's the end of the game, Sparkle, as far as I know. I got the mask earlier in the game, found some of the morphing objects while playing and finishing the game, and that was it for me. wave12

Hi, Marian!

I just finished the game and must admit that I'm a little (no make that a lot) disappointed. I found the repetitive floating puzzles to be EXTREMELY annoying and ended up skipping all but the first two. It wouldn't be so bad if you could simply click on the squares to join the pieces together, but you can't because they have to be maneuvered, which is next to impossible. The sketches were fun at first but, again, the repetition eventually became annoying because, if you don't have a photographic memory, you end up revisiting practically every location until you find the right match.

Don't even get me started on the bonus section. I don't really consider 2 puzzles and about 20 minutes of gameplay to be a bonus section, and there is no way I'm going back to every location just to find morphing items.

"Dire Grove" was the first MCF I ever played and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but this one pales in comparison.

Susan

Hi Susan,

I thought the floating puzzles were intriguing at first and did manage to do three or four of them, but after that I skipped them - the difficulty of controlling the pieces in order to put them into position got quite frustrating for me. I agree with you about the bonus section; I thought there should have been more.

If this game had not been a part of the Mystery Case Files series and had been from another developer, I think the game would have rated a lot higher in the estimation of many who were instead disappointed. When compared to other Mystery Case Files games, I agree that it was lacking in some areas. Still, I enjoyed the experience overall and felt eager to play it until I had finished.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the game. thumbsup12 wave12

You didn't confuse me, Marian. The game did. I never dreamed that the bonus chapter would only be looking for morphing objects. Had I known, I wouldn't have paid for the CE version. Next time there's a MCF game released, I won't be so quick to snap it up. I'll wait for the reviews. Sorry if I sound crabby here. Guess I'm just disappointed.
