205068_4EA recently release a cute point and click adventure game for the iPhone called Mystery Mania. It's a charming adventure game that was originally released for mobile phones before it was ported to the iPhone.

The game offers 27 puzzle rooms throughout which you unravel the mysterious storyline. You play the role of F8, a robot with amnesia who must figure out what's going on. Touch controls offer the ability to interact with your environment and you must perform tasks in the correct order into order to solve each room. The game as been relatively well received in our forums with mostly positive experiences.

The only real criticism for some has been the relatively short length and ease of difficulty of the game, though it appears to be a good time during. Here's some of the Lite gameplay recorded by AppBank.

Two things, however, may convince you to give the game a shot. First, EA offers a free Lite version that gives you a taste of the game, and second, they have temporarily dropped the price of the game from $3.99 to $1.99 for the next 24 hours.

App Store Link: Mystery Mania FREE, Free, Mystery Mania, $3.99

      definitely. got my attention immediately. I'd love to see adventure games like that get big on iphone, I miss them.

      Although I hope there aren't as many crazy people with knives chasing me around... Adventure games with constant death threats were a little too difficult for me.

    "The only real criticism for some has been the relative length and ultimate challenge of the game"

    Huh? Meaning that it's too short/long and too easy/difficult? Please be more specific!

    I wonder when the 24 hour sale started. A few hours after the article posted it is not $1.99.

    It is available for the past 3 days in Europe.
    I know because I bought it on Monday or Tuesday.
    The game is very good but the bad thing is that it's too short.
    You can finish it in 2 or 3 hours max.
    I enjoyed it and I'm not complaining about the length of the game but I wouldn't complain if it had 5 or 10 more rooms.
