Ghosts of Mistwood

Release Date:  July 2012
Publisher:  Disney
Developer:  Playdom
Genre:  Adventure

Ghosts of Mistwood is a social adventure game developed by Playdom, maker of Blackwood & Bell, Armies of Magic, Marvel: Avengers Alliance and etc. The game was firstly appearing in the Playdom’s private Forum and officially announced at E3 2012.

Set in new Orleans, the game centers on “collecting and crafting”, which can be done through player’s exploring the graphically cartoony environment.

In Ghosts of Mistwood, players are tasked to find their lost aunt in a series of kidnapping events and they are able to solve mysteries, engage in crafting potions like Stardust Potion in the workhouse and Enhanced Stardust Potion in the Medicine Wagon. Also they can clear weeds or trees in the forest, search corrupted trees and anchors, and harvest clover crops that can be used to craft other items necessary to complete quests.

For example, in order to craft the potion to earn you more lanterns, you first and foremost have to craft some vials, and then turn them into green tinctures, then craft the enhanced stardust potion (which gives 3 lanterns).  Once it is crafted, it will appear in your inventory.


Upon receiving a letter from Aunt Virginia, you are asked to visit her at the family estate where some strange things have been happening lately. Once arriving at the estate gate, you have to check whether this is the right place. Kind of weird though.

Investigate those mausoleums nearby to rescue David, a ghost hunter, the Landers who look like siblings rather than a couple, and Estella, a writer and friend of Virginia. All of those characters have been summoned here to help investigate mysteries but end up being trapped. After being rescued, they would guide you through the game, be incorporated in your team and be ready to run errands for you. For example, it will be the wedding anniversary of the Landers and the husband seeks help from you to entertain his wife. In that way, the missions fall naturally and smoothly.

To back up your exploration across the woods and search for Aunt Virginia, you are going to purchase and then construct workhouses, bungalow, toolshed, carriage house, and other structures while exploring the woods and discovering existing buildings. Pay close attention to the titles when you are supposed to purchase some building because the positions of the buildings in the store change sometimes. I mistakenly purchased two extra workhouses when I should buy a bungalow. But that turns out to be a blessing somehow since as I go deeper, more and more items have to be crafted, which necessitates the simultaneous manufacture of multiple stuffs.

You start from a pretty small land, with dark fog in all directions. Click the foggy land to clear and explore the fog so as to expand accessible land and collect more resources. That expansion has nothing to do with any amount of money or gold bar unless you prefer that way. It could consume only the lantern oil that you collect from quests, crop cultivation or certain animals. Some important quest items must be collected by clearing the fog, or we can say, unlocking new area. A lantern appears as you mouse over some area, which indicates that area is not available for the time being.

The uniqueness of Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood lies not in the stylish structures and cartoon-style figures (though those characters occasionally give steady and aggressive stares) but in its lacking in an energy system. Feed the owl and cat, chop down corrupted trees, craft items in the workhouse, remove weeds, rocks, and wild flowers, construct and repair houses, collect apples and peaches, harvest magic from the Magic Willow, or clear the fog. No matter what you do, you click the structure or target involved and one of the characters will rush to get it done. You are free to do whatever you want as long as you have free helpers still available – and of course enough resources and coins required.

Speeding up an ongoing process in Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood is not necessarily at the price of some god bars. You can do that with the magic you obtain by planting certain crops and tending certain animals. And you are also allowed to pause some processes to finish others first.

It is easy to fall in love with Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood. But it does go dull as time goes by. You are required to hire friends or spend money to staff some of your buildings. The owls and cat to keep in the yard are like weird puppets rather than living creatures. And the tasks occasionally involve process spanning hours after you reach level 5, making progress not as easy as you would expect. But it would be an absolute delight if you are ready to pay.

  12. Lesley xx says:

    Add me as a neighbour please please please hehehe 🙂

  13. Nicole says:

    loved the game, played it for several days, then the lantern oil issue got me. I am not a very patient person and am willing to spend some money on games I like in order to speed them up, however, when i see how much gold it takes to buy lantern oil and then how fast I will go through that oil, this game would get far too expensive far too quickly. If the oil were replenished slowly over time (like a whole day even) and I just had to wait for it most of the time and pay for it when i am feeling that impatience surge, that would be different, but the amount of money one would waste on this game on a continual basis makes it so I will have to remove the game.

  14. Jessica Kay says:

    add me on facebook to play and help each other! Jessica Kay!

  15. karen southwind says:

    Jessica Kay I would like to add you just to play Disney ghosts need another player for staffing if you would like to be part of my neighbour group of 5 ty so much. karen edwards

  16. Disappointed says:

    Its too hard to add lantern oil as it takes forever. plus, you can't complete hardly anything without being forced to get friends that MIGHT want to play it and to add as staffing. I need like 64 staffing on the main map. I got one so far! and that took me 2 weeks to get someone to staff it and only because she is a local friend of mine. That, Royally SUCKS BIG TIME> too bad, it was interesting but they screwed it up after you starts.

  25. katarzyna polewka says:

    suche nette nachbarn 🙂

  26. Lis says:

    The lantern oil issue is the big pain. What you need is neighbours who will respond to your requests for stardust quickly – you can send to them, then they'll be allowed to send back to you, and you can quickly collect a pile. Even so I find one three-lantern batch a day is all I can achieve, what with all the other calls on stardust. In that respect I think the charm of the game could wear off, as lantern oil is clearly seen as a cash-generating wheeze…

  59. susanne says:

    I am terrably frustrated as i got no fog to explor and finish my quest's, how can i get fog please

  60. GirlyGamer says:

    this game totally sucks so far, ive played WAY better games!!!

  61. charlotte giles says:

    I like the game but am disappointed that we cannot have 1 lantern oil daily. It seems it would be the logical thing to do as you have to clear the fog. The stardust you need to make a 3 oil supply takes a long time to get & the fact that I have to ask other people to staff buildings has made me decide to just store those buildings. Too bad there always has to be a catch like adding so many people or the items are soooo expensive (if you decide to spend real money). This is a virtual game. It should be fun, not frustrating.

  77. Jocelyne St Amour says:

    I've also been playing Disney Ghost of Mistwood. It's been about 2 months now, that I can't log in. I'm able to send the gift that my friends need and what they send for me, but that's it. I've spent a lot of money on that game. And there's still a lot remaining. But I can't log in. This is not right, there has to be something that we can do to be able to log in. I even started running a scan on my computer before I log in, and restart my computer so that everything is clean, no virus or nothing. But still can't get in. Come on now!! There has to be something that we can do or download so that we can get back to playing our games. Getting fed up. Just not right.

  78. Have played Ghost of Mistwood for quite a lomg time and now im unable to even get into it. My game is on facebook and is supported by facebook and GM. Please check into this and fix .im on level 33 and now cant even play. Also there are no new levels or challenges passed level 31 whats up with that

  79. Debbie says:

  80. Can't get into game for the last few days ,think it's come to the end on I- pad as no quests for months ,a lot of money wasted ugh!!

  81. basha says:

    the game is done, I loved it. it wasn't making enough money for Disney and playdom I imagine. can't find another game like it.

  82. bataa says:
