Slingo Mystery Review

by on October 25, 2009 at 9:40 pm

Every time I hear about Slingo making an appearance in another game, I get a little excited. I keep hoping the magic formula will appear and turn a Slingo game into the greatest thing since sliced bread. And I’m continuously disappointed. On the surface, mixing slots and bingo is a magic combination for me! I love both so much. But for some reason, when you actually sit down and play the game, it gets rather boring rather quickly. So when I heard about Slingo Mystery, taking Slingo and throwing it into a hidden object game, I was geeked! I thought, finally, a version of Slingo I can get behind.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

It’s not that Slingo Mystery is bad. In fact, it’s compelling enough that I wanted to get to the end. However, I was never thrilled and amazed with the game. The basic premise is that Freddie Gold has died and his ex-wife wants to get back her ring. However, the current wife (aka the widow) is a royal b**** who doesn’t want to give the ex a thing. The players are cast as the ex as she gets herself in and out of trouble in the empty casino, while going on a scavenger hunt set up by her dearly departed ex-husband. Along the way, she is guided by a friend helping her through the many areas of the casino. The story was cute, but always predictable. The voice acting was also pretty distracting, as it was stilted and it really detracted from the game. I think pure text would have been better than the voice acting.
