In Mystery Tales: Time Travel, players follow Mélanie Cygnes, a French author who occupies her dead aunt's vacated house where she stumbles upon an old diary. Unable to rein in her curiosity, she reads it and is instantly taken on a journey of discovery to places across the world and through times long past, including ancient Rome, baroque France and Victorian Britain. Players must help Mélanie solve riddles and find hidden objects in thirty unique locations around the world.
Hidden Objects Time Trial: Find the hidden objects within the allocated time.
Logical Quests: Linear game play tasks unlock objects which allow progression, eg: find objects to put out a fire to reveal a secret passage.
Hotspot Levels: A twist on the genre. In these modes players don't know which objects they seek until they fall upon a 'hotspot'.
Reverse Level: Can the player remember where they found objects, because now they have to put them back?
