Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Midnight Mysteries – Devil on the Mississippi Collector’s Edition walkthrough on Gamezebo Midnight Mysteries – Devil on the Mississippi Collector’s Edition is a Hidden Object Game played on the PC created by Mumbo Jumbo. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints and a strategy guide on how to complete Midnight Mysteries – Devil on the Mississippi Collector’s Edition.

General Tips

This hidden object game requires visiting several locations and using inventory items to advance play.

  • Play is mostly linear and task-drive. There are some options for the order of exploring locations.
  • CAPITALIZED inventory items are meant to make it easier to find where this guide may deviate from your own play.
  • A black cat will jump out and briefly freeze the cursor as a penalty for rapid clicking.
  • Always move the cursor around a scene. Watch the cursor to see if it changes into a hand or an eyeball.
  • Hidden object scenes contain two types of items: clues to help solve the mystery which are added to the journal and puzzle clues (listed in green) that describe an item rather than specifically naming it. For example a “Small Writing Instrument” is a pen.
  • After all the listed hidden object items are found, a final item is listed. This is an inventory item.
  • Find hidden ravens to increase the number of hints available.
