I had stopped playing HO games because I thoght they had just gotten too repetitive for me. So even though it is no longer 2010...I still must rate this game as my fave of last year. It is original, the art work is incredible and I love the fact that some of the minigames had me stuck. I really like the fact that if I play it again it will be with different hidden objects. It's too bad I can't rate this a 10 ...love it love it and now on my way to Mishap 2...Thanks Gamehouse..a home run with this game!

I have played a lot of games from this site and this one is one of my favorite games. You clear all of these different, beautiful rooms (that have absolutely gorgeous graphics) and suck up ghosts. When you get the ghosts it gives you a description and a picture of each one, and I thought that was a lot of fun, reading and learning about the ghosts. You also have a boss ghost to beat at the end of every level, and that is fun as well. This game is great, I would recommend it to anyone, it is definitely worth the purchase. The only downside to this game is that it wasn't long enough for me, but it is still longer and more full of stuff than a lot of games on here. I WISH they would make ALL of their games like this one and the ones I recommend, I can't get enough of these types. And I have noticed that these types of games get a lot more 4-5 star reviews than most of the other types. So, take the hint Gamehouse!!!! Start making more like this one!!!! Actually, I know you read these reviews, Gamehouse. And I was wondering how I go about suggesting game ideas to you guys? Because I would really love it if you guys could make a Tim Burtons - The Nightmare Before Christmas game!!!!

I am enjoying this game. Finding the ghosts is also fun.

I had a lot of fun with this game....great graphics, good humor and very original in all aspects. It made me laugh with every scene. Objects are well hidden, but with all the background scenery, you want to take your time and enjoy everything.

I originally bought this game to play with my granddaughter when she spent the weekend. We didn't finish it together, so I used a new profile and completed it on my own as it is so much fun! Even the ghosts that jump out at you for clicking the wrong objects are hilarious, not scary, but do make you jump. The mini games are very original and challenging for me (not for my granddaughter, but I couldn't wait for her to come back in 2 weeks), the graphics are great, and it's just a really fun game for the entire family!

The graphics are unlike any other HDO game I've seen and I like the concept but it's short and the smaller objects are a little too hard to find. There's no zoom so you basically find all of the big stuff and use your hints on the "matches". And one match in one room doesn't look anything like the match in another room so that makes it a little interesting trying to find stuff when there's no consistency. I was excited about the graphics but the game doesn't live up to it. I deleted the game after beating it in the trial version. Didn't even take 60 minutes.

It was a lot of fun. It was a free download for the day and it took me about 6 hours total to get through it. It was entertaining and not frustrating. I loved it. I would say it is ok for kids 7 and up.

If you like fairly usual HOGs, you'll probably like this. Most of the time is spent searching for things, and if you click too often, a scary face will come up on your screen and scream at you. Occasionally ghosts come around and you have to find them. Some of the items take some looking to find, but you can move around from room to room if you want to return to an area where you're stuck. There is a Hint button to use as well but I still find I run out of patience somewhat quickly because so much searching can get boring. All said, though, it's not bad for a Halloweeny game, or any time of year. It's really not very scary.

This game is a total snoozefest! Even though I used a game coupon for it when I was a member at BFG,I never finished it and deleted it. I HIGHLY recommend that everyone try the demo before buying it!

This is one of the top games I've seen in recent months. Involved, beautiful art, with surprises at every turn! I loved capturing the ghosts, and seeing the story unfold. It's like Beetlejuice meets Ghostbusters! Great music, the voice acting was good, and the cut-scenes are AWESOME. If you're a skeptic who normally skips the story stuff, do yourself a favor and watch these. Top of the line, Grade A+ game!

This might actually be one of the best HOGs I have ever played. Some of the items were a little small to spot, but it didn't really detract from the fun. The mix of catching ghosts and mini-games with the hidden object scenes kept it from getting boring, and there were PLENTY of hidden object scenes in and of themselves! I'm off to try the sequel now in the hopes it offers the same challenge and amusement.

I was disappointed in this game. The graphics were great but the annoying pictures that pop up every 10 seconds during game-play made me so frustrated I stopped playing.

This is a very fun game. Lots of different mini-games. I have only tried the trial version but I am hooked and am using a Fun Ticket to get it. I like the way you can span some of the rooms. And the items are not so difficult that you give up. I think this game is worth the purchase

Great graphics, challenges, twists and turns - thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend this game to Mystery Files fans and to those who have enjoyed Mortimer Beckett.

I am into quirky and both Mishaps are so well done and fun!!! I just hope there are more mishaps on their way.

I started my free hr w/expectations of not liking it. I was pleasantly surprised. Although I'm only in the diningroom, I've enjoyed the game so far. I've just purchased it so I can continue. I always prefer games where I don't need to worry about the time. It turns into over-clicking to find things in a hurry, which turns into penalties. Have fun.

This game is just fantastic. I loved the graphics, the color and the creativeness. The mini games and puzzles are different and lots of fun. If I could give it 6 stars I would. I can't wait to play Mishap 2 and I hope there are more. It really is a visually beautiful game and not dark and hard to see like a lot of HOG games. This is definately a keeper for future play.

I tend to go through Hidden Object games quickly and they are over before I really want them to be. Mishap slows you down a bit with various tasks such as hunting down ghosts and solving riddles. But it's not boring and doesn't get bogged down. I also enjoy the quirky storyline and the wry sense of humour.

I loved this game. The graphics are nice, the mini games varied and fun and a very original storyline. I laughed out loud at some of the antics and ghost descriptions, then to top it off, a very sweet and romantic ending. Very enjoyable, very humorous. A welcome break from all the drama of most of the supernatural HO adventures. Really a pleasure to play!
