Mystery Case Files 17: Rewind – Review
Mystery Case Files: Rewind is – as the game’s title suggests – a look back over the whole MCF series so far.
With game play that also recalls earlier games in the Mystery Case Files series (in particular chapters 1 to 5). As it focusses mainly on hidden object game play. Interspersed with mini games and super puzzles. So unlike more recent MCF games, this chapter has a very basic plot and very little adventure story element. This is pure HOP game play!
The basic storyline brings together a host of characters, items and locations. Which fans of the series will recognise from earlier chapters. But you don’t need to have played these games to enjoy this installment.
So, if you prefer your hidden object games to have more hidden objects and puzzles, and less adventure and storyline. Then I think you’ll enjoy this new MCF game.
This is the 17th installment in the MCF series. See my post: Mystery Case Files and Ravenhearst Games List Order. For PC, Mac, Android, Amazon Fire, mobile.
