Hidden_Mysteries___Civil_WarHidden Mysteries - Civil War - Historic Seek-and-Find Game

 

I suppose that you get an idea of the general background of the game from its name. Yes, you are right, it's about the events from American history.

 

And that is what makes Hidden Mysteries - Civil War developed by Gunnar Games and published by GameMill quite special.

 

 

You are to get to know the life stories of three generals - William Walker, Richard Boyer and James Munroe.

 

Hidden_Mysteries___Civil_War You find yourself on a battlefields in America. The events described in the game are from 1861-1865. You are told the life stories of three fictional generals - William Walker, Richard Boyer and James Munroe. It's actually a pity that the characters are not real. It would have been much more interesting to learn some true facts about the real people who participated in the war.

 

Well, at least, the places you get into are absolutely real. The stories of our generals take us to Wilson's Creek, Shiloh, Fort Sumter, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg etc. But it's kind of weird when you are to find something like tape or glass in scenes like that.

 

The game features two modes - Relaxed and Timed.

 

Hidden_Mysteries___Civil_War There's also a part where you are to decode a letter that you get. It is fun to read them because they give you some details about the lives of the characters. The seek-and-find process gets challenging when you are asked to find the items that are very tiny or hardly seen.

 

It can take a hint, but again, hints only show the area of an item and hints last only for a short period of time. So even using the hints is not always easy here.

 

The game features two modes - Relaxed and Timed. I guess the difference between the two is obvious. The bad thing is that no matter which one you choose the game is still pretty short.

 

The game has its pros and cons and it's up to you to decide what to do about it, but it's still special and unusual with its story line.
