About

It is the year 1830, and a young governess named Ester has just received a letter that will change her life forever.

The message from her aunt tells Ester that her parents, whom she never met, left her an inheritance – a mansion in London. But when she goes there, it turns out that the residence is abandoned, run-down, and haunted.

When she explores the mansion, slowly learning her family’s secrets, she discovers that for many centuries, members of her family have been investigating the phenomenon of time travel. Soon Ester finds a strange object that confirms the extraordinary legacy of the Ambrose family. This is how her exciting journey, which will lead her to places – and times - she had previously only seen in dreams, begins.

During her adventure across time and space, she will discover forgotten artifacts, meet extraordinary beings, and experience supernatural events. Trying to unravel the secrets of her heritage, Ester grows ever more entangled in an ancient struggle between the wizard Merlin and his rival, Viviana.

Will the young governess change the course of history and solve her family’s ancient mystery?

Time Mysteries 2: The Ancient Spectres reviews and comments

Translated by

I totally like to play Hidden Object Games. I had asked myself again a moment ago why. I think it's because they're not particularly demanding, but mostly tell quite an interesting Story. The Latter is always the most important thing to Me about games. In addition, I certainly work 10-12 Hours a day, usually 6 Days a week and Evening no longer have much Of a DESIRE for an AAA Title, but rather want to relax 1-2 Hours in front of the Dadting Box. Then such Hidden Object Games always go down well with me, because they are not very difficult to solve, so a relaxed play. I am also totally interested in the Topic of Time Travel, as Time Mysteries 2: The Ancient Spectres also addresses. I find every Approach interesting, because there is a lot Of thinking behind every Approach of a Journey back in time, the Thought of the Possibility and how it could be implemented. I always find it exciting to get involved in this Topic and to experience the Imagination of the Developers. I thought that was very successful in this Game and because I just think about this whole time travel topic I had a lot of Fun with this Game. Maybe it is different for You, if you are not interested in The topic, it is often the Case with Hidden Object games that they are very Storydependent, because that is the most important thing in the Type of Games. Unfortunately, it Remains to be said that this second Part, not as hoped, makes reference to the first, but has its own History at its disposal, I thought that was a bit of a shame. I would have liked to see another Part that tells the first Story. More STEAM Games I like [mediennerd.de]

Beautiful game, beautiful graphics, beautiful plot. At first it may seem boring but after a little becomes addictive, compelling, intriguing. I have tried similar games but they were all slow and always the same. Finally I found it, the perfect game, no demand for money (apart from paying the full version) and Infinite Aid, the perfect pastime that leaves you glued to the screen for hours.

Dear Apple, if a game is defined free must be COMPLETELY FREE! Now spend 5 euros for ste things no thanks. So next time or write that is paid or you make it free completely paying you the developers. If you want to download it also but you will remain with a bitter taste in the throat because it does not give you time to start that after just half an hour asks to buy the full version.

As a former Player of Games like Maniac M., Day of the T., Monkey I must say Top! Of course, of the Puzzles and The Humor Not like a Sierra or Lukasart's Game But this is a Hidden Object game. And Quite frankly, The Graphics are Top. The Hidden Obmies Look very good and have it in them one or the other time. There is also a nice Story that you Play ... TOP, TOP, TOP

And that's two. I have completed the first chapter (The Lineage), and now it begins to "Take Me" seriously. As for the game, there is not much to add compared to the previous; The quality is the same (unexceptionable), graphics and sound are OK, the gameplay is the same. If you like the genre, if you played the first episode (or even if you did not do it is the same), buy it with your eyes closed. Not yet convinced? Try it first, and if you like it do not hesitate. Final Vote: 5 Stars deserved. :)

The +:-intelligent story, which uses "temporal transfers"-pretty graphics, handmade Les-:-problem of absence of sound during one of the phases of the game (when the aunt causes, we read the written translation of what she says but we do not hear sound) -the game abuses SOC-some items of SOC, buried in black corners, are invisible: obligation to use the help "clue" to find them-in at least 2 mini-games, the statement of the objective is so poorly drafted that one does not understand what to do , so we're going
