Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind
In Brief
Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind is a Hidden Object game - Track down a missing scientist as you explore the place where reality meets illusion. This was originally given away September 23rd last year, where it received a positive 81% rating from 45 votes, with 27 comments which you can read HERE. I've re-posted my review from last year with a couple of changes.
Don't forget to check out yesterdays game Tank Hurricane that's still available HERE. It's a Q Basic Gorillas like 2D game; though you'll find a better 3D version that's also free HEREcalled Scorched 3D.

Introduction:
Alex Hunter thought the case of the missing professor would be an easy paycheck. But his investigation has proven to be anything but simple. With hours of captivating game time, a richly detailed world, and a story-line inspired by classic detective novels, Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind will thrill casual game fans looking for their next great adventure!
Over many years, Private investigator Alex Hunter had worked on dozens of cases involving murder, theft, bribery and fraud; and nothing fazed him. Until, a young lady came to his house asking him to help find her father, the renowned scientist, Professor Patterson. The professor had vanished from his house, without a trace, over a month ago. The police were called in but they were unable to find any clues. Coincidentally, neighbors reported having bizarre visions and suddenly finding themselves in strange places. Hunter took the case, thinking it would be a piece of cake.

The Game:
In Lord of the Mind, you play as Alex Hunter, a famous detective which takes on the case of a missing professor. The story is not specially exciting or captivating but it sets a nice base for what to follow. There are no cute animals, fantasy creatures, fairies or magic spells – Alex Hunter is one mature game with dark and gloomy environment which should be appreciated by fans of this genre.
The game is visually impressive, although we think that the graphics are a little too muddy. The scenes are highly detailed with stunning shades and effects. The voice overs are nice as well as the music. We love the 3D elements Alex Hunter has from 3D characters and dimensional environment.
There is nothing special about the game play of Alex Hunter, it plays like other HOPAs but being done in a good way. It is not really a straightforward game, which makes it fairly challenging to play. Puzzles are fun and tricky while Hidden Object scenes are few and far between, they are standard and well-cluttered.

Being only a Standard Edition game, it is quite a surprise to see Collectibles and Strategy Guide included in the game – anyways, that is surely a big plus. Furthermore, it also has a long playtime which means that your 7 bucks spent on this game would not be wasted.

Review 2:
Set in Europe at the turn of the 19th century, Lord of the Mind follows Alex Hunter's quest to locate a missing scientist and uncover the terrible secret behind his dangerous research. The search carries the player through a series of interesting locations during one of the longest nights on record.
For a casual game about clicking on barbells, records, and other random items, a surprising amount of thought has gone into world-building and keeping it internally consistent. While more of a simple search and rescue story than a legitimate mystery, there's more than enough plot to keeps players hooked through what has to be one of the most fast-paced HOGs I've encountered.
008

009
Alex Hunter's HOG screens are lushly produced, full of animated backdrops and small interactive areas that serve no purpose but to delight the player. The developers have gone a long way to explain the cluttered masses that must be sifted through—by using a variety of derelict settings (sewers, old asylums, a ransacked laboratory) the amount of random objects strewn about is largely justified. Some items are more random than others, however, and they're often tucked away in absurdly awkward locations, which shifts the balance a little further from fair than it should be.
The searches are of the 'find the clue/key and fifteen other items' variety standard in the HOG genre. There's an extremely large number of item manipulation puzzles in the game, so there's always a good reason to go looking for a length of rope or toy soldier, but the HOG searches are definitely padded by their insistence on loading a dozen random items onto the list.
The story follows a fairly logical investigation by HOG standards. With relatively inept police sidelined at the beginning of the game, it makes perfect sense that a private detective would have to break into sinister complexes and search for clues in order to track down the missing doctor. The puzzles, while fairly ornate and complex, do a good job of fitting in with the game's setting, never feeling out of place in any of the locations.
It isn't until the very end that the game goes completely off the rails—for the first four hours, the story follows a completely coherent path, as the player learns more about the 'Lord of the Mind' technology and the threat it poses to the world. Then, just as things seem to be reaching a climax, the titular machine is turned on, and everything the player has been led to believe is tossed aside and they're transported with almost no explanation to an entirely new location, and handed a bizarre set of random tasks to complete. It's an incredibly jarring interlude that feels like it belongs in an entirely different game. It breaks the flow of the story, and makes the plot's resolution feel oddly underwhelming.
010

011
Up until that last hour of game play, Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind is a stellar example of the genre. The graphics are beautifully drawn, the puzzles are fair and fun, and a quick-travel map makes the expansive world easy to navigate. If it weren't for the story going completely mad in what seems like a desperate attempt to tack on a little more game play, this would have been a glowing review. As it is, Lord of the Mind is a great HOG for most of its running time, but the jarringly disappointing finale keeps it IMO from being one of the classics. Rating: 8 out of 10
Info for parents: The game was not reviewed by the ESRB, but it contains violence. You'll see some corpses, there's a little shooting, and the implication that horrible experiments have been done on captive mental patients. Beyond that, though, it's a pretty safe game.

Having problems installing today's game?
If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind to work please visit the problems section, which you can find in the FAQ's thread HERE. Also read through the community’s comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted. The main issue we have is with the giveaway wrapper, which uses a Themida based code to protect the games executable. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide malware; so, as a precaution, some security software may block the installation and sometimes even delete the executable file. Blocking or deletion is usually determined partly by the way your computer is set up. Usually you'll get a message saying ''the file is corrupted'', but, the files are okay. There are a couple of things you can do to overcome this issue. The first is to reboot in safe mode with networking, install the game then reboot, or secondly you can (at your own risk) temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then turn your security back on. A note of reassurance to those that choose the latter and quicker method. The game giveaway team have been giving away games for over a decade (Dec 2006 & prior to that, via the main site 2 or 3 times weekly from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006) and have 'NEVER' given away a game infected with malware; they always test every giveaway with several of the top anti-malware suites to ensure all games are free from malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, if you have a problem getting the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve or if you have a game to offer the community you can do so HERE

Thanks, played this when given away before and quit just before the point mentioned that game "went off the rails". I was getting bit fatigued by then anyway. Sort of rem it was decent enough to hold me to that point but enough was enough by then and did seem to be getting draggy, forced.
Didn't think I should post this in GOTD Forums. Looks like a teen shooter thing with robotic style forms to kill.
Not posting any link but it's out now as part of their end of year day only series giveaways.
Humble Bumble mentioned it and links to game & short trailer.

I concur with Jerry. Worthy of saving for future playing. A very entertaining HOG.

I played this when it was given away last year.

If you enjoy HOGs and didn't grab it last time then I recommend it to you.
