Have missed your games so Very Much for us IPad users. This game I am thoroughly enjoying! Very creative & unique storyline, with interactive hidden object scenes, puzzles and collectibles to find in the scenes. Teleporting map is provided. What a nice surprise to see a game from you - it has been way too long..... I love how much detail you put into your games. Very beautiful crisp graphics as well 😀 I hope this is just the beginning of seeing more of your games again. This made my day!!!! 🎉🤗 I highly recommend this game to other players.
Thank You Artifex

Innovative Story with Unsatisfying Ending

I love how they make this game a science/history based hidden object mystery. The story line keeps you thinking and I really enjoyed the mini games that they had to offer. Good length but I would have preferred a shorter story that kept me guessing rather than a long game with a predicted outcome. Art, design, sound, and music quality are as superb as ever. I’m only giving it three stars because compared to the other Artifex Mundi games, that’s where it lands.
