Thanks Ana, Didn't play too far into the demo before I bought this one. I'm really liking it. I enjoyed the first game and this looks to be just as good. Actually, I'm finding it a lot easier to just click "use two game credits" . lol

Thank you, Ana!

This is a buy for me, as well! I also loved Salem Witch Trials. I am so in the mood for another great scared

Great graphics! I just checked Achievements.....adds more to the gameplay and having the Strategy Guide in the game.

Hi, Ana!

I loved "Salem Witch Trials" but only have 1 Club Credit left, so I think I'll wait until I receive my June Club Credit to buy it.

I played 10 minutes of this game and used my two credits. I am really enjoying it. Loved the era of Mark Twain. I am playing the Salem Witch Trials on my Ipad 2. So I am having double the fun:)

I can't get this to even start downloading. Maybe they're just backed up?


Thanks it just downloaded.

Replayed and went past where the game froze. All set now. rah

I was really enjoying this game until I got to the pool table puzzle. I read the instructions, but when I aim and click...nothing happens. Anyone else have this problem, or am I doing something wrong? crazy

All I did was to hold my mouse button down and back the cue away from the ball a few inches, and then let go. I think some folks at the other forum said they right clicked to move the cue back so they could strike the ball.

Well, I'm bummed. Downloaded demo today and already having technical issues on second scene with gameplay going into slow-motion. Looks like others are having similar problems. Hope BFG gets this fixed soon.

I had no problems other than a graphics irregularity outside of the dungeon in London, where droplets hitting the pool of water looked like black rectangles instead of droplets landing on a pool of water. So I had these black rectangles appearing in the water. I exited the game and restarted, but the problem remained. I think this game may have higher video card requirements than they let on.

I downloaded the demo and could not get it to run. I uninstalled it because the tech problems I was having from the begining. I see that others are having problems also so maybe I will wait until the glitches are worked out and try it again.

It's impressive that the team did enough research to discover that Mark Twain, like a lot of bright people of his generation and the next, believed Donnelly's book the Great Cryptogram. My father was the next generation up, and as a young man thought that Shakespeare couldn't have written the plays. My mother, a Shakespeare worshipper all her days, set my dad straight. I have a notion that attribution to Marlowe was a popular conspiracy theory a century ago.

I don't really care that the story in Devil on the Mississippi makes no sense. For example, why give Rogers a surname, Huddlestone I think, that was his middle name? It took me a while to track him because I kept thinking he had to be the fictional fellow Clemens buried in a story about someone getting woven into carpet. Anyway, I didn't care that changing Rogers' name was odd or that he seemed to be a villain without a purpose because I enjoyed discovering that Clemens and Tesla were friends and that membersof the Clemens family were Union spies.

Devil on the Mississippi shows that the historical wing of casual game development is on the right track. All that is lacking is narrative structure which is a flaw shared by almost every good adventure and casual game and one that I have become accustomed to. I play casual games for the adventure elements and begrudge every moment of HOG screens. I love knowing that someone took the time to incorporate intriguing facts about the main character into a computer game. Hats off. I make a sweeping and courtly bow.
