Mystery Mania is puzzle adventure game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. There have been plenty of games similar to this one that have come out but I must say this one was a ton of fun to play. Players who are familiar with games such as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion will instantly see the resemblance of the games. Although this one definitely doesn’t go into as much depth as Monkey Island, it definitely had a feel of it’s own.
The game follows the story of a robot who boots up into a mysteriously ruined mansion and has to figure out what happened. In his quest he must find out what happened to the inventor and must figure out who all these mysterious characters are and what they have to do with this broken down mansion. There are a ton of traps and puzzles that take some thinking to get through and slowly unveil the story.
The humor in the game is great and the puzzles are well thought out. But the game ended up being a bit too short to truly enjoy it it and once the problem has been solved, there is really no replay value. So at the current price it really is a tossup but the game itself was pretty addicting for the time I did have to play it. Check it out.
