Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident

System: Wii Release date: 09/09/2011

When a man named Winston Malgrave contacts the Mystery Case Files detective agency, he claims to have made the scientific “discovery of the century” and invites you to his island. As Master Detective on the case, you must use your powers of observation to find items critical to solving the case and learn more about Malgrave’s discovery - a mysterious and intriguing purple dust.

In order to solve the mysteries, you must explore the colourful and immersive landscapes of Malgrave Island. Along the way you will discover hidden object puzzles, where cleverly concealed items are scattered throughout a myriad of all-new and colourful scenes.

When you think you’ve found the item you are looking for, simply use the Wii Remote pointer to select your discovery to tick it off the search list. But all is not as it seems. Some of the terms on the search list are intentionally vague so you’ll need to think laterally to find all the items. For example, you may be asked to find a car - but this car could be a toy car, a real car or even a picture of a car.

As you journey around Malgrave Island, make sure you keep an eye out for a variety of other clues, including photographs of teddy bears and watches, which can be collected for certain side-quests and logged in your notebook. When you have collected enough clues, you’ll be able to solve a number of different logic puzzles that will help you complete your mission.

If you get stuck or simply want to share the fun, why not call on your friends to help you solve the intriguing, brain-teasing mysteries? Up to three other players can drop-in and work together to find those sneakily hidden items.

Add a little competitive edge to the game and play in Swift Pick mode where the fastest player to discover all the objects wins. Or why not try a spot of Tick Tick Pick? The Wii Remote pointer turns into a ticking time bomb that will explode when the time runs out. Take it in turns to find the hidden objects as quickly as possible to pass the time bomb. But don‘t be the last one holding the bomb or it’s game over!

  • A new hidden object adventure game in the popular Mystery Case Files series
