Mystery at the Museums is the second in the Adventures with Edison series. The game is sponsored by Smithsonian Institution and allows the player to visit different museums.
A detective agency is searching for missing treasures. They've been misplaced or hidden in museums. Accompanied by Edison, a happy little fellow, the players visits the museums and must solve various puzzles. Puzzle types include: match two or three hidden pictures of a kind, slide the tiles to compose the picture, falling block puzzle, match the constellation from a selection, etc. The answers are fulfilled with additional educational information.
There are game sessions of different difficulties for childen in the age category 6-13+. Finding all the treasures in a session places the winner in the High Scores table. The looks of Edison may be adjusted. The game session progress is saved / loaded for each game profile.
«The curators are reporting that priceless Smithsonian treasures are missing from exhibitions. They've been misplaced or hidden somewhere in the vast museum complex. Tomorrow the President is making an official televised visit to open the Treasures of the Smithsonian exhibition and it's complete chaos down there! Nothing is in the right place! No one can find anything! I'm sending you two on the greatest search ever. You must find all the objects on my list before the museum open at 10:00 a.m. They could be anywhere!»
As you can see from this short intro text, in Mystery you direct little Edison who is helping his boss Smitty to find lost objects. This is a very entertaining puzzle game that can be played by both kids and adults.
«You must find all the items displayed on the slide screen before the digital timer runs down to zero or before the clock reaches 10:00 a.m. Click on the item to find out what it is. Items that have been found will have a check mark on top of them. To get to the map, click on the word "map". Good luck and happy hunting!»
The game is combined of lot of other mini games inside it. Before you start, you can choose a difficulty level or customize your own. If you are having trouble completing the tasks, you can always choose a lower level of difficulty.
There are a few amazing things inside the game. First thing is that you can change looks of Edison! You can change colours of his clothes or even colour of his skin. Try pink it looks cool. Second thing is the «Don't touch» button. When you press it...well, you will find out what happens.
I suggest you to try and play it. It's very educational since there's always something you can learn from it.
The second offering from Binary Zoo is a slight letdown compared to its stellar predecessor Wild Sciences Arcade despite design inputs and backing from the prestigious Smithsonian Institute. Invaluable objects from each of the Smithsonian museums are missing, and it is up to you to recover them. Puzzles are derivative from other games (a Tetris variation, memory games, etc) but at least they do combine educational facts and figures and are fun to play.
