App description: The second thrilling mystery in the hit Midnight Mysteries series: Salem Witch Trials.


It's well worth the play and the purchase price and anyone looking for a game with a lot of playtime and a replayability factor won't be disappointed with Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi. KillerBetties.com*

Devil on the Mississippi is going to be one of the games I remember most about 2011. Give it a try and see why for yourselves. DieHardGameFan.com*


Down by the deep and muddy Mississippi, somethings not right. A ghostly riverboat brings to light a new conspiracy for players to unravel in this all-new Midnight Mystery.

Mark Twains ghost has come to you seeking help from an evil that has been stalking him in the afterlife. Trace the steps in Twains past that led to a lifetime of anguish. Twains passion for literary history reignites a controversial debate about the true identity of Shakespeare; the age-old question resurrects a series of malevolent characters. After waking an unexpected evil, Twain sets about to rid his time of the darkness, but the plot only thickens. With Twains help, you have to unravel the connections to try and set history straight while dangerous forces loom.

Who wrote the works of Shakespeare? And just how did Mark Twain get caught up in a strange Elizabethan rivalry all those years later? Find out in this Midnight Mystery!

What does the collector's edition include? Is it just the strategy guide or also the extra level (included in the collector's edition of the PC version)?

I also note that you can purchase "additional content" - do you know what this is?

The Collector's Edition is $2.99 and includes the extra content (and level) as well as the strategy guide.

You can also buy Ravens (hints). I think the biggest amount was 50 for $1.99.

I am downloading now. I loved Salem so I expect this will be as much fun.

Now I just have to find time to play!

I just finished this up and I have to say it was great. The puzzles were clever and the story was wonderful as well.
