That said, Mishap is undoubtedly one of the best hidden object games in the App Store. The visuals and sound are first rate, there’s a rich story to follow along with, and the general touch and tilt interfaces work well, even when hampered by the iPhone’s limited real estate. The replay value of the game is limited, however, which is something to keep in mind given the relatively steep price tag of $4.99 for the iPhone version and the even steeper price tag of $7.99 for the iPad version. All the same, Mishap is easily on par with the best of the PC hidden-object games, which regularly retail for $20 bucks a pop, so it’s still not a bad deal, all things considered.
Mishap is delightfully inventive, but not without its frustrations. Its instructions aren't always as clear as they could be, which can be particularly frustrating during the final encounter with the main ghost. Moving from the hub of a region to the satellite rooms is simply a matter of finding the doors, but they're not always immediately obvious and it's too easy to miss the small green arrow that gets you back to the hub room. Still, these are minor complaints in what is otherwise an entertaining, amusing, and refreshingly different hidden object game. Oh, one last thing: Try not to have too many incorrect clicks. You won't like what happens if you do...
When all is said and done, Mishap: An Accidental Haunting is a casual game and I shouldn’t be too hard on it. For a mere $10 it allows you to have a decent gaming experience, which is exactly what it claims to do. With that said, it’s not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination. You will not want to come back to it again and again, as is the case with other casual games such as Plants vs. Zombies. However, if you’re in a situation where you have to kill a few hours and there is absolutely nothing else to do, Mishap could very well offer some positive emotions. Just don’t expect too much of it.
