Gorgeous visuals, ambient music, and fun cartoonish archaeological theme, but the game is very short and easy. Recommended if you like hidden object games, and if bought on sale in a bundle with the other Samantha Swift game. It's also kind of annoying that you can only get half this game series on Steam. The Mystery From Atlantis and Fountains of Fate are missing, and the latter is the most advanced and best of the series.

This is one of those games where you sit around the TV with your family and play through a few scenes each night. It's basically a mixture of "find the listed objects scattered in the scene" with some mild puzzle games, with a straightforward plot heavily inspired by a certain movie about a whip-toting archaeologist. The art is cartoony, which made finding most of the objects in the scene a pretty simple exercise as they stick out like a sore thumb. A few are better hidden, but nothing stumped us for more than a minute or two. The fact that the cursor sparkles when you hover over interactive areas of the scene where tools need to be used made searching somewhat redundant, and there didn't seem to be any means of turning that off. Still, it's all pleasant enough, and a fine diversion if you like this kind of thing. You'll know if you do.

This is definitely easy in terms of this type of game, easily solved puzzles and hidden objects scenes. I like the mythos and the storyline is cute. The only issue I had was the minor glitches now and then. Still worth a run through if you like a fairly easy variety of puzzles/scenes etc.

This hidden object game tries to be different but it falls in mediocre category. It's fun when you want to waste time but meh, this game is only worth it when it's on sale.
