A world famous castle, the mysterious, unexplained death of a romantic king, and anonymous clues pointing to a whole web of dark conspiracies—what more does a savvy journalist need for a gripping story—maybe one with Pulitzer potential?

As an investigative reporter for the Irish magazine “Facts & Fancy,” Sarah Hamilton does not miss a beat as she receives hints that something strange is going on at the famous Bavarian castle Neuschwanstein. In the thrilling puzzle adventure Mystery of Neuschwanstein, Sarah and her new acquaintance Wolfgang Adler, a professor of historical criminology from Heidelberg, find themselves on a dangerous search for the truth behind Germany’s most famous unsolved death—the untimely death of the Fairy Tale King Ludwig II of Bavaria in 1886.

Was his death in the shallows of Lake Starnberg the result of a successful suicide attempt, as the official sources claim? Or was it indeed murder? And who actually profited from the death of the monarch?

This gorgeous castle is more than meets the eye. It conceals secret passages, hidden rooms, and other secrets! Sarah and Professor Adler will have to combine their knowledge and different skills to get to the bottom of things. But that is easier said than done when a mysterious monk starts passing on cryptic messages, and the first dead body turns up.

The ambitious journalist and absent-minded Professor Adler will have to stay on the ball as they carry out their investigation; people are not as they seem, and some of them do not want the secrets of Neuschwanstein to see the light of day. What is hidden behind the polite facade of the castellan Beatrix von Lohen, and what is the Italian building inspector Francetti really up to? And then there are rumors about the “Guglmänner,” though nobody knows what role they play in the web of conspiracies.

Will you be able to accompany Sarah and Professor Adler through this adventure and solve the mystery of the fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein and the unexplained death of King Ludwig II?

Mystery of Neuschwanstein reviews and comments

I am very disappointed by this Hidden Object game. Half of The Game time is wasted on Speech Bubbles between the individual People. The Hidden Obmets are grotto bad.

I also played through this Game, but also searched it! This is one of the best Hidden Obbles I've played so far. The Attention to Detail, the Plot and the Graphics convinced me. Exciting to the last Screen.

What Is really missing from this Hidden Game are comfort functions that other Games of this Kind have had for a long time: In puzzle Mini-games, the right parts are not fixed. In Hidden Objects, there is no Recognition Of what Objects can interact with. The help function provides more Frustration than it helps. I think it's good to play a Hidden Game From German Lands and with German Voiceover-but overall the Game provides more Frustration than Lust.

Mystery of Neuschwanstein, plays in principle like any other Adeventure/HiddenObject game, but historical aspects are also involved-which is otherwise less the case. So There's nothing new about it, but still there are some nice Featues like using the UV light or the Camera to locate certain objects at all. The Game time is without overjumping a good 5 hours circa, Archivments come by themselves with the Course Of the Game, unless you skip and solve the Puzzles right away. Too good last remain the Puzzles, these are easy to deal with with with something thinking and yet sufficiently demanding-as well as too much you should still not expect. Conclusion: A nice Adventure with a historical Background for in between-and well worth a Look.

You might get an Interest after the Game for dealing with the End of Romance and the difficult Transition into the Age of Technicalisation. All in all, a successful Attempt to refute the Still unexplained death of the revolutionary progressive King Ludwig II with a fictitious assumption. The fact that Ludwig II and Richard Wagner had already Conceived the Feature film, which had already been made a short Time later, is well known, but the Game Computer would have opened up many more unimagined possibilities for them. I didn'T like the fact that sometimes it looks like the Game doesn't go on. It's Only when you've read all the Messages that a new Episode comes along. This often leads you to wandering around and looking for "Click points" that don't exist at all. The Tasks are often formulated somewhat abstractly without Reference to real Places. Overall, I can only recommend this Game, compared to the 120 or so games I have played, it is unique.
