Ghost Town Mysteries: Bodie A reporter goes to the deserted town of Bodie, California, to investigate ghost sightings of Evelyn Byers, a seven years old girl that was mysteriously murdered with a pickaxe in 1897.

Ghost Town Mysteries: Bodie is a hidden object game using a real ghost town as the main theme. At the start of each of the fourteen chapters, the player has to reassemble a tombstone to receive a key for the next location. The gravestone pieces are dragged from five slots at the bottom to be dropped inside a green outline, connecting each other in a jigsaw puzzle to restore the ruined tomb.

The key opens one of the abandoned buildings, where the objective is to find and click on all the items listed on a notepad at the right side of the screen, on locations filled with assorted paraphernalia. The hint button is a spider inside a jar, that descends from the ceiling spinning a web to show the exact position of one of the required objects. Flies can be collected to feed the spider and receive extra hints. In some instances, the goal is to find the differences between two old photographs with similar images. [source:mobygames]
