Features of Enigmatis: The Ghosts Of Maple Creek for Windows 8:
When you install and launch Enigmatis: The Ghosts Of Maple Creek on your device, you will be asked to enter your name and only then, you can proceed further.
Simply enter your name in the above screen, and click play in the menu which will be displayed once you click OK. Once that is done, you will be presented with a beautiful animation which will detail you the storyline of the game.
You can click on the SKIP button in the above video to forward through it. Upon doing so, you will be presented with the main gameplay screen itself.
During the gameplay, you have to pick up objects by clicking on them. The above screen details this. Once an object is picked up, it goes to either your evidence or your inventory. The inventory is basically a storehouse of the things that you pick up along the way, which can be used for other purposes like opening doors, etc. It can be accessed via the Inventory tab at the bottom, and the evidences can be accessed by clicking on the Evidence button in the bottom right. You can see the trail of clues by clicking on your notebook at the bottom left corner of the screen at any time.
The evidences are shown in the below screenshot. These can be picked up along the way, or by completing hidden object levels (more about that in a while).
You can view information about each of the evidence by clicking on it. The game also consists of certain levels in which you have to locate the cleverly hidden items listed at the bottom of the screen.
Upon collecting the objects, the names of each picked up object is struck off from the list at the bottom. At the end of the level, you are either rewarded with inventory items which are useful for opening locks, cutting chains etc., or with evidences which can help you in your investigation. This wraps up the basic features of the game.

Enigmatis: The Ghosts Of Maple Creek is a nice game for you if you are looking for a game which allows you to solve an investigation and mimic being a private detective virtually! The game has great graphics and smooth performance, the only (major!?) drawback being that its size is massive – it’s about 500 MB in size! Apart from that one drawback, this game pretty much nails everything to be an awesome game!
I give this game a 4.5 out of 5 rating.
