Secrets of the Dark: Mystery of the Ancestral Estate is a puzzle game for Mac.
 

Secrets of the Dark: Mystery of the Ancestral Estate is a hidden object game developed by Orneon that takes on an adventure on the Mediterranean coast. Your objective is to help a young woman who's been dealing with mysterious problems in the house she inherited.

You will need to find clues in various locations, solve challenging riddles, and complete hidden object mini-games. The app gives you access to a journal where all important case notes are stored, a Hint option to use whenever you're having difficulties solving puzzles, and an integrated help guide to learn how to play the game.

I enjoyed playing this puzzle game. All scenes were very nicely drawn, each with different types of challenges which needed to be solved. My favorite location was a room from the mansion where, if you click over the fireplay, the chamber changes completely revealing additional clues or puzzles.

Another great thing about this game is that you interact with many interesting characters and learn info about the mansion's history from their perspective.

In conclusion, if you're into playing this sort of spooky, addictive, and entertaining hidden object games, you should definitely give Secrets of the Dark: Mystery of the Ancestral Estate a try. The app brings you many hours of gameplay filled with numerous challenges, has nice graphics and cinematics, and is affordable.
