In this new chapter of the Master Detective series, you are charged with discovering the identity of a patient at the Manchester Asylum. By finding out who she is, you can help to uncover the truth behind her strange behaviour.

This game has a good starting plot, but this isn’t developed much further than the basic set-up. However, what does work really well is the amount-of and variety-in the puzzles including Super Puzzles, which on average involve sufficient difficulty to challenge you. And though the plot is somewhat thin, the game play ensures that, once you get into the heart of the adventure, it is engaging and fun.

Other than the issue of the thin plot, it is (as with most of the recent MCF games) more puzzle-based than hidden object – so if you prefer more your HOPAs to have more HO games in, this one may not be for you. And the morphing objects and collectibles seemed to be quite easy to spot.

On the plus side, there’s plenty of varied and well-designed challenging puzzles and mini-games that are in-keeping with the theme. And the visuals are clear and impressive with plenty of attention to detail.

Overall MCF20 is an enjoyable adventure game to play. (And definitely an improvement on more recent MCF releases). With some good puzzles to solve and nice visuals to immerse you into the adventure.

This is the 20th installment in the series. See my post: Mystery Case Files Games Order. For all of the game titles in the series so far, listed in order of release. Available on PC, Mac and mobile.
