Social game giant Playdom is famous for its series of HOGs but certainly not constrained to that single genre. Playdom tries its hand on adventure type and adds into its roster a new title of adventure, discovery and interaction, that is, Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood.

Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood

Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood sends you out in search of your missed rich aunt from her haunted Louisiana home. That’s why you are here, solving the mysteries around the family estate and conducting some seemingly relevant activities that will finally lead to the rescue.

Whatever is the storyline, in-game activities in practical are seldom different from the established models typical in social titles. Clear withered plants in the ghostly Mistwood estate, grow, tend and harvest crops and orchard, build various workshops, collect tools and materials, craft potions and enchantment, and expand the scope of search step by step. And you are not alone here laboring all by yourself. As in Gnome Town, you have several helpers, the NPC figures including the property managers, ghost hunter and writer that are rescued by you out of mausoleums in the very beginning. With their tireless labor, you can set several quests on-going simultaneously, not necessarily quickening the pace of progression though. Also similar to Gnome Town, the game gives you extra hands to help in quests, but sets completion time long, be it construction or crafting, at the same time.

There is no Energy Bar to constrain the gameplay, but there is something else to work the same effect. One factor is the aforementioned long time for completion of a quest, and the other turns out to be the necessity of friends’ help in quests. One or another item is required to obtain from a friend; or visits to a friend to help out in his/her estate x times is demanded – quests of this type is of a spam-friends or spend-money question, if you don’t have friends playing it. If you opt neither, quests are simply quitted and undone.

Quite a standard Facebook title is the overall impression on Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood after hours’ playing. Not bad, just not new. If you have friends who share the same love towards social games, you can enjoy the little adventure and discovery of it in comfort and in casualty.

note: Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood is currently in Closed Beta Testing and slated to kick off Open Beta this summer.
