Big Fish Editor's Choice! This title was selected for its exceptional quality and overwhelmingly positive reviews from our Game Club beta testers.

Eipix Entertainment proudly presents the next thrilling case in the series Mystery Case Files!

When a new assignment brings you to the Zenith Museum of Oddities, what was supposed to be an open and shut case spirals into a complex web of deceit. Someone knows about your past, and they’ve prepared a special tribute to all your biggest cases. But what do they want, and what will become of the innocents that stand in their way? You’ll need all your skills to stop the dangerous foe that threatens to use your past against you in this heart-pounding new chapter in the classic hidden-object puzzle adventure game saga!

See what our Beta testers had to say:

“Absolutely brilliant! I haven't had this much fun playing any game for a long time. The puzzles were superb, particularly the statue base and the lamppost puzzles, but the multiple Rube Goldberg puzzle was out of this world!” - beta tester

“Fantastic game! Love the references to earlier games - Ravenhearst, The Dalimar family, Madam Fate and her carnival characters - need to go back and replay the earlier games now!” - beta tester

The Master Detective must figure out who is the Archivist’s last hostage! Help free the other MCF agents from the Archivist’s schemes! Disable the bomb set to destroy the MCF archives.
Search for stamps, souvenirs, and morphing objects hidden throughout the game!
Replay your favorite HOPs and mini-games - and earn even more achievements!
Enjoy memorable wallpapers, concept art, videos, and music.
Keep your adventure on track with the strategy guide!


As always, please remember to come back and tell us what you think.

Happy gaming! sherlock

Hi, Marian!

This is a definite buy for me. I beta-tested the game and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I'm torn between picking it up today or taking a chance for a better sale on the weekend lol !

That's a tough call, Susan! smile

Someone I know who has played all the MCF games thinks this is a really good one, with door puzzles, callbacks to previous games, creepiness, and humor.

I will look forward to trying it out.

Hi, Marian!

I agree with that person. Based on what I played, I thought it was the best one yet because there was so much to see and do. If I buy it today, it works out to $9.49 a game so, naturally, BFG will have a weekend sale where CEs are $6.99. If I wait, the sale will probably be half off retail. Maybe I'll just flip a coin smile !

I bought it too. I usually wait for a sale; but I want to support BFG for producing this great series (even though it isn't in-house any more) so if it costs me an extra five bucks more, it's worth it!

I am liking it as well. The first super puzzle is dumbed down and still managed to stump me in one section.

Can you hear the sound of my teeth gnashing?

That does not mean I want the puzzles easier. It means I should be cleverer.

I will wait for the Labour Day long week end, surely there will be a BOGO sale?

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 08/28/19 12:41 AM

It's been about 20 days since the last 65% off sale so they should be having another one soon Ana. Hang in there. You can do it!

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 08/28/19 02:05 AM

I bought it for 11.99 on todays sale. It took me two hours to get it installed because I kept getting "oops, looks like something went wrong" and then "installation failed". I finally got it! Now just to find time to play. lol

Hi, Marian!

They haven't had a 65% off members sale for quite a while, so I decided to take advantage of it and also picked up the newest Labyrinths of the World. I like to save my Game Club credits for a BOGO sale because I'm still only paying $6.99 for each game lol !

Hi, Marian!

Excellent choice! I played that one about 3 weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I think you will as well.

I played the Demo and was sold on it, too. I also like the self-referential content. The game play is the usual. So far, it feels a little easier than some of the other MCF games. I enjoyed those really complex multi-part puzzle "doors" of some earlier games. I definitely plan to buy this game.

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 08/28/19 09:44 PM

Hi, Reenie!

If you're a Club member, you can pick it up today for $6.99. I've been playing for about an hour and am thoroughly enjoying it because there's lots to see and do. I did get stuck on part of the first large puzzle until I discovered what I was doing wrong, and then I kicked myself smile .

i bought this game since i have all of the rest but it sure is boring. i am still mainly at the beginning of the game but am so bored already. i hope it gets better as the game goes along.

well finished the game and bonus game too. this is the first game of mystery case file games that i thought was boring as all get out.

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 08/31/19 01:04 AM

Sorry you didn't like it, my10. Maybe you will like the next Mystery Case Files game more, which comes out later this year.

Thanks for the heads up Marian, I tried the demo and will get it on the next BOGO sale, it looks quite good at least from the demo.
I also demo'd Grim Tales - Guest From The Future and it looks good enough to pair up with the MCF game.

Hi Starcom, you didn't have long to wait - the BOGO sale starts today. wave

A quick mistake - in the Bonus Game, the first HOP an item is called "Isolation Tape." It should read "Insulation Tape.

It's only confusing because there happens to be a roll of 'Police line do not cross' tape among the objects.

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 09/01/19 03:30 PM

I think I would have figured that out, but good to know. I guess they decided to add a little extra challenge to the search. grin

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 09/01/19 03:54 PM

I played the game and enjoyed it but I did hit a glitch towards the end (I didn't have what I needed to fix the elevator and couldn't go back to get it) and had to start over again. I think they have an update now, not sure. wavegirl
Posted By: Marian

Re: Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame Collector's Edition - New HOPA on Big Fish - 09/01/19 04:04 PM

An update for the game was released a few days ago - hopefully it fixes the problem you were having.

Actually, Isolation Tape is correct verbage. It is slightly thicker and sometimes has foam backing to keep sound out. Hard to tell on a roll unless its sideways to see what it looks like. I'll look when I get there.

I finished Moths to a Flame last night and thoroughly enjoyed playing the game. I have to say I enjoyed it much more than the past few in the series. I'll be looking forward to The Crown.

Now I'm just trying to decide on which games to grab with the BOGO Sale. I still have several on my manager I haven't even played yet. lol

But Ana then pointed out that there is such a thing as Isolation Tape and that this is not a mistake. (see above post)
