Mumbo Jumbo Issues - 12/13/12 09:47 AM

I bought the disk version of Mumbo Jumbo's "Midnight Mysteries - Devil on the Mississippi".

By default, when I installed the game it wanted to install "Gamebar" and set Web Search as my default search engine. If I select the custom install I can deselect them both but then when I try to launch the game I get a "debug report" that apparently is supposed to improve the game in the future.

So I went to the Mumbo Jumbo website to see if there was a way to install the game without the add-on and without making changes to my computer and Norton notified me that it had just stopped a malicious toolkit attack!

Sounds pretty suspicious to me. Has anyone else had problems like this with Mumbo Jumbo games?

I stick with BigFish for this reason.

Hopefully someone that has bought a game from them can tell you if this is the norm. It sounds like a lot more than you bargained for just to install a game.

Ana luck

Several years ago I purchased a couple of boxed Mumbo Jumbo games and nothing like what you describe ever happened to me, Cue. Maybe things have changed in the interim? headscratch wave12

Thanks everyone.

I had one other Midnight Mystery game that came in a four-pack that I didn't have any problems with. I think for the price, I'll leave this one alone.
