A new sheriff arrives in town to solve the mystery of serial murder and disappearances. You arrive in town just as a major storm is approaching and the area is being evacuated, so I wonder what else can go wrong. The Sable Maze: Sullivan River Collectors Edition can get a little easy at times, probably due to our Sheriff helper Nertz Solitaire is far too helpful. Personally, the big bad blond Viking broad is getting on my nerves! The HO are list finds and you must click on pairs of items such as 2 hats, 2 masks or 2 calculators. I thoroughly recommend you give it a try and hope you enjoy it as much as I did. There is little to no thinking involved. Other Extras included in the Collector's Edition can be found in the checklist below. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by marmcmullen from Would not purchase Not enough HOPs, just not a very fun game to play. The bonus game was just the right length. I've played 30 minutes now and I think, there's about an hour left to play. The graphics were like in many ERS games that I bought were fantastic! The gameplay was smooth and I downloaded and played with no issues at all. Despite that, credits go to the voice-overs which are usually on-point with nice lip-syncing. There aren't too many mini games either but they all seem fairly easy such as placing single fingerprints one at a time onto the matching originals.

The game wasn't all that challenging, but it kept me interested and moving. A Viking lady, Valkiris, loses her husband and is disheartened when she cannot visit his remains in Valhalla due to the fact she is not a Viking warrior. The storyline turns out to be a bit intriguing although very similar to others, and of course there is the angry female spirit that we need to deal with as the story unfolds. So I truly hope they take the players' reviews to heart and keep this up. The Vikings were fierce, world travelers who conquered the land and the seas. I always hear other reviewers complaining about too many HOS, well here's your game! We must put out a fire and the cop hands over a fire hose yet he is standing next to the hydrant. A couple months ago I got a beta sneak peek of this ERS title in my email, and it just blew my mind! Okay, first of all, what idiot would speed down a dark slippery road on a rainy night! There are various types of HO's in the game. The storyline is a new take, which I liked a lot. Kudos though for no sparkles or black bar tips on the hardest mode. As always the graphics and sounds are great, and in this game the characters finally have moving lips, while talking. The second one I found quite amusing! In the CE version of the game you will collect runes that will be used to interpret ancient scrolls.

There are collectible runes which must be placed in certain scrollworks. Still looking for that one to knock my socks off! Reminded me a bit of a wedding; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. In any event if you choose not to locate Col,ectors in the HOS Mahjong World Contest 2 there is a Tetris style puzzle available to play. I liked the game, It was quite enjoyable to play. Now Native American ghosts I can see! Not impressed. This game is going on my to buy list. Lots to do, an interactive map always a plus Bonee me Can't understand the bad reviews, but each to their own. I've never been a fan of ERS games, however, I do give Zumas Revenge game a fair demo. I especially like the map to it, It's not only jumpable, but I love the legend on it. Minigames a little different than usual which were good. The Past:: was great and the visuals were excellent. I'll be purchasing this game a soon as BFG has a great sale!


You have my vote for one of the best games that I have played in a long time. Some that took some time to work. One was a find pairs and the other a replace items. There is another option for the HO's. Still I found it rather messy. Again, as always with this developer, the simplicity of the game was ridiculous. Each game and HOP ties into the story. The graphics in Ghosts of the Past are nothing to rave about. ERS has once again delivered a good if not great game. HOSs: I only came across 2. It was long, challenging, interesting, and definitely CE worthy. The only collectibles I found are the runes, which are pretty well hidden here and there.

I do recommend the game as an SE and I am pleased that ERS has at once again lived up to its reputation as a very good game maker. ERS has once again delivered a good if not great game. Despite that, credits go to the voice-overs which are usually on-point with nice lip-syncing. The Orb catcher was annoying. A good storyline, you're the new sheriff of a haunted town, where an angry spirit kills innocent people, but are they really that innocent. I feel it's time that ERS perform an update of sorts to remove some of the grainy and unsharp scenery. Well, the answer is quite a bit since there is the inevitable car crash and you must extricate yourself right off the bat. Ghosts of the Past: Bones of Meadows Town is entertaining nonetheless, even though it is not very original or overly-exciting; all the game mechanics just fit together very well and flow very smoothly. The mini-games are even better -- match fingerprints, use a phone without the numbers being visitble, complete Viking magnets on the fridge. Too, too much. There are unfortunately some downers as well and they mostly are in the " are you kidding me " category. Beautiful scenes that ERS is famous for. The only collectible was rune stones and they were prominently placed. Discover the truth, behind an archological dig and a missing Sheriff, who's infact always present, without beeing noticed.

Ghosts of the Past - Bones of Meadows Town Part 1

In fact I didn't even get around to playing it until I exhausted games I actually purchased after this was downloaded into my account. The storyline in Ghosts of the Past is far from original, as can easily be predicted from another 'car-crash' opening. Instead of playing the HO's they have a new twist. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Donq47 from Enjoying this game. I've never been a fan of ERS games, however, I do give each game a fair demo. Some that took some time to work. By the time I want to use either a skip or hint I want to do it right now, not wait for a minute or two. To me these are examples of developer shortcuts or just not thinking enough to do the right thing. A couple months ago I got a beta sneak peek of this ERS title in my email, and it just blew my mind! A transportation map is always a help. It took me a couple of hours to complete. Two Thumbs Up, I hope you as well enjoy! I've been very dissapointed with so many of ERS latest games, but with this new release, they're finally back.

9 thoughts on “Ghosts of the Past: Bones of Meadows Town Collectors Edition

  1. Yes, you know who the bad guy is almost from the start, he's the sinister looking chap The storyline is a new take, which I liked a lot. Hopefully they'll do this in every of their new releases now, like they used to a year ago. However, it is a lengthy bonus game with several new areas to explore. The HOPs are fun -- match pairs of objects, dress a man who lost some clothes running from the spirit.

  2. Had a Ruins Room which I forgot to visit while finding Ruins in strategic locations. The poorly operating Hint button; the orb, which glows-but no energy to use it just yet- so that only defeated the purpose. A few had me searching for a while. Reminded me a bit of a wedding; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. The visuals are good which is the norm for an ER game.

  3. Like how the did their HO's This game also had custom set up when choosing to play on easy or harder mode. Love it! In this game you can focus on what is happening and not worry about the number of collectables you need to find. And like another reviewer, Vikings in America?

  4. I get the feeling the game length will be in keeping with what gamers want. And the factor of no actual morphing objects, nor any HO areas just yet. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Donq47 from Enjoying this game.

  5. I admit that I am an ERS super-fan and so the game was an instant purchase for me. There aren't too many mini games either but they all seem fairly easy such as placing single fingerprints one at a time onto the matching originals. ERS I really hope you're continuing your way back to the top game developers!

  6. All of this makes the gameplay more challenging and fun. This gave me the longest gameplay hours without being bored of any game in a whileeven the bonus chapter stood up to justifying the collector's edition price. This one began to sink at the very beginning of the demo and kept getting worse. The graphics in Ghosts of the Past are nothing to rave about. You have my vote for one of the best games that I have played in a long time.

  7. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by tekeguy from My Sleeper Game I had no intention of buying this game but selected it as an add-on to a collector's edition sale. So i'll wait for a great sale for this one, or until the SE comes out. A far as level of challenge goes, I played on the most difficult option and I only skipped one mini-game because it was taking entirely too long and I got frustrated.

  8. The comments from the detective sent to investigate are flippant I suppose the developers thought they were funny , and it ruined any atmosphere of spookiness. In the CE version of the game you will collect runes that will be used to interpret ancient scrolls. There were no morphing items. And like another reviewer, Vikings in America? Personally I think ERS has taken a step up here.

  9. The graphics were okay and so was the music. Reminded me a bit of a wedding; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. So I think the CE here is worth it. And the Hint button kept redirecting me to the outside fire, but, nothing to extinguish it with just yet : So far, horribly unimpressed.
