      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A game which is nice to play but could have offered much more

      Mystery games make people spend longer on them and learn to have patience and on this game you will need both.

      The idea behind the game is that you search through ancient destinations on a map and all you are looking for is artifacts.

      These items could be anything ranging from a simple pencil sharpener to a pair of boots. Each level you have it claims 10 items to find but usually it is more then that due to some items have x2 or x3 next to them. This means they have three of those items within that particular search area.

      So you know the idea behind the games but what else is there to do well there is some items you need to find on every level if you can one is a mask which are hard to find and the other is some sort of old brick work but they are hard to work out so they can be tricky challenges for you to do.

      Next you have to figure out is there any hints around for you to cheat. Some items I didnt find because I was confused with some of the words. You have on this game some items which are used in American terminology which means unless you know what they are you need some hints.

      The hint button at the botton will show you a small area where a missing item is located and this can be anywhere or any object it wishes to take you to. Once you use that hint the power builds up at the bottom and within 20 seconds you have another hint ready for you.

      So in theory you could complete this game without ever looking for an item and letting the hints do the work for you.

      Throughout each scene there is so many items around and you will get the urge to ignore the list and go clicking on all the items in the hope that eventually all the 10 items you need are gone but if you do that you lose time as a penalty. You have usually 20 minutes to count down before you finish and that is nice to know but you never need that long.

      The graphics on the game are bright and they are helpful in making you see what you need to. At times I think there is to much going on in each scene which become a problem for the graphics but overall they offer a decent amount of colour to each scene.

      Game play is one area which could be better. When clicking an item they should disappear instantly and be crossed of the puzzle but this never happens all the time. I found a traffic cone they wanted and I was forever clicking it but it never worked so I left it until the end and then the click I performed was accepted.

      I think the game for me was to simple to complete. You had long time frames to do levels, you had plenty of hints and to be honest 10 items is not that hard to find in a scene so I would say to people this game would be nice for children but perhaps to easy for the more adult and mature people.
