Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker is an adventure game that blends together elements of both psychological and crime thrillers, aimed at fans of hidden object games.


A quiet town is shaken by a series of murders. The victims are all young women and the killer remains at large. The local media nicknames the murderer the “Toymaker”, in reference to his grim calling card: the bizarre toys he leaves at the scene of the crime.

The detective in charge of the investigation feels increasingly hopeless as her chances of capturing the madman slip away with each passing minute.

A breakthrough arrives in the form of a video tape sent by the killer, pulling the heroine into his dangerous game.

Will she succeed in determining the identity of the Toymaker and preventing another murder, before it’s too late?

• A gripping crime story with life-or-death stakes!
• Take the Toymaker’s Challenge: play 10 unique mini-games!
• Over 600 hidden objects to find!
• 13 detective achievements to unlock!

Normally, Artifex Mundi games are my favorite HO games. They have great plots, interesting characters, great graphics, and so much more. But this game was a huge let-down. It was entirely Hidden Object scenes, with a few lame mini-games thrown in. Don't waste your money on this. I suggest you find other Artifex Mundi games. Some are sold by Big Fish and some by G5 (I think). The best are: Enigmatis series, Mind Snares, and Nightmares From The Deep series.

Nope, not worth it

Apparently the price went up to $3.99 since a different reviewer left their review. I wouldn't buy this game for several reasons: 1) was this a full chapter? If so, it was way too short. I didn't get a feel for the game. Are you really just going to stay in one scene playing HOPs and getting thrown (a very easy) mini game here and there? 2) let's talk about HOPs. Change them up!! OMG, I hate playing list HOPs every single time, it's boring! Plus, I like these games for the mini games, I got to try one very simple mini game, and this speaks poorly for the overall game. Are you not going to offer very many mini games? 3) staying in 1 room was lame. It was like the designers or writers didn't know how to move the story along, so, every task was set in one place (ugh). Is it like that for the entire game? I wouldn't know because I didn't see past the first mini game.

I'm very familiar with this company from Big Fish, and was excited to see them branch off. However, this game is not up to par for a $3.99 game, it's at the level of a $.99 game. That said, I'll keep an eye out for their future games, but I was VERY unimpressed with this game and did not buy it nor would I recommend even to bother downloading it.

Did not finish

Not only is this a game where you stay in one location and do one simple HOG after another, they even recycle the HOG scenes. And charge $2.99! Expected far more given that Enigmatis II is the best game of this type there is. Unless you are a player who wants nothing but hidden objects--no journey, no story, no finding something in one scene to unlock or use on something in another scene--don't buy this. A ten year old might like it. I only bought it because I thought I would get out of my "office." Incredibly, I never did! Laziness and greed from some extraordinarily talented designers who should know better. Scrap it or cut the price to 99 cents.
