Haunted Houdini

Yep, that's right... we're dealing with Arthur Conan Doyle and his association in a secret order to have Houdini killed.

Or something like that. Despite that Houdini proved that mediums were fake, this game is well in the realm of the supernatural (because, hey, video games and they can do what they want), so of course magic and the supernatural is real. (There are a few "magic tricks", which are only amazing in that you don't spend a long time working out the maths of it, but maths is what is behind it all.) And there's a secret society behind his death, and it's up to you to find out what's going on.

This is like the better version that episode three was. Actually... to be honest... I did find the story interesting (given it was dumping all over Houdini's reality) that I was getting annoyed with the few hidden object scenes came up. Hey, can we get past that and back to the story? Still, complete it I did... on casual. This is the first time I've had the choice of what level to play at. Casual was fine with me. I want to relax with this game, not stress out. Good enough.

So that's it. Overall... not a brilliant series of hidden object games as hidden object games, but not terrible either. Skip the second one, and you'll be fine.
