The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths is a children point & click adventure puzzle game. After the events in South America, you follow Esteban, Zia and Tao as they travel across China in search of the second City of Gold.

Pros: This is a bright and colorful adventure game, the 3D graphical style very respectful of the 2D anime it follows. Each character has a unique ability, and you must swap between them while traveling through labyrinths of jungle, caves and palaces, avoiding capture and solving puzzles to make your way across. The game is easy to pick off, perfect for any kids to learn.

Cons: Obviously meant for a touch screen, the point and clicking doesn't work as well with a mouse pointer's accuracy, often requiring several clicks to press a button, pick up an object or move exactly where you want to move. The clip-montage cinematics don't explain the story, but simply tells you at which point of the show's story you're at, so anyone who hasn't seen the Second Season won't understand most of the story or character development.

Verdict: Although many of us grew up with the First Season decades ago, the recent Second Season of The Mysterious Cities of Gold was marketed specifically for children, and this game targets that audience. Therefore, I cannot blame this game for being easy or meant for children. If you haven't seen the show, you are unlikely to find any interest in this game. But for what it's trying to do, The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths does it justice.

This game had the potential to be really fun to play. It has an interesting art style, amazing cutscenes, puzzle solving with multiple characters and the potential for a great story.

However it suffers from some terrible design decisions. The puzzles are really simple and require next to no thinking to figure out, which makes it obvious that this game is intended for the younger audiences. The stealth system is very simplistic, enemies have no recollection of you and all you have to do is stay out of the line of sight and hide in a bush or a vase or something like that if you are spotted. Managing the playable characters is extremely tedious and it would help a lot if the developers added some simple commands such as follow, as it stands right now you have to move each character individually through the whole map. The levels are short, but they feel extremely long because of the aforementioned difficulty with controlling the playable characters.

And the absolute biggest problem with the game is how the story is presented. Mysterious Cities of Gold is based on a cartoon and also copies the story from it, including the cutscenes which are taken from the cartoon. This makes the game not suitable to play for anyone who isn't familiar with the cartoon, because all you get from the story are gorgeously animated short cutscenes which skip ahead a lot, because the game is trying to present the story of the full run of the cartoon within a small number of short cutscenes..

Do not play this game if you are not either familiar with the story or a preteen. If you are at least one of those, they you will likely enjoy the game. However I am neither one, so I simply got frustrated and bored with it.

THIS IS A CHILDRENS GAME!!!! <12 years old most likely

-Excellent kids game
-Good art
-Good cutscenes

-Extremely simplistic puzzles (good for kids)

-Tedious controls to switch between characters and push switches. Tons of waiting for graphics to catch up.
-Design reaks of mobile game

Normally, a mobile game with mindlessly easy puzzles would not be much of a recommend, but....the endearing art style, good children's quality (and variety of inclusive characters), combined with cutscenes, unpunishing gameplay, and easy puzzles make this a fantastic kids game.

I will definitely keep this one around for all those times somebody's kid is at my house with nothing to do.

太陽の子エステバン 1982年制作のSF冒険アニメで、アニメーション制作はスタジオぴえろ。

音楽が80年代のディスコチックで最高w サントラ入れて欲しかった。

Full review:

I’ll start off by saying, I’ve never seen the original anime that this game is based on. I actually did not know of its existence until I stumbled onto this interesting game. I might actually want to watch the 80′s anime, the game made it seem quite interesting. Because of this, I’ll be unaffected by the “nostalgia factor” that many people had when they saw this game. Anyways, I’ve seen a lot of people purchasing this purely out of nostalgia, and learned about the show because of it; now, onto the review!

I was slightly disappointing by how the game played out. The game essentially combines puzzle elements with some scavenger hunting mechanics. That’s the entire game in a nutshell. The basic concept of the game is not that hard to understand. You’ll find yourself switching between the three main characters, Esteban, Tau, and Zia. Each character has their own special ability used for certain puzzle mechanics found scattered throughout the levels of the game. Each of these skills will have to be used in a certain pattern in order to complete a level. This ultimately results in the player wandering around looking for an object that pertains to a character’s ability, like a crack in a wall, which Zia can slip through.

The levels can easily be traversed with a free-roaming camera, marking each character with an icon and allowing you to figure out the solution to a puzzle from an easier perspective. The problem with this style of gameplay is that switching between the characters feels like a chore. You have to operate all three characters separately, each being used for their ability. Throughout the game, you pick up these “parchments”, which act as collectibles scattered throughout a level. Collecting them all gives you a gold medal at the end of the level for finding them all. The problem with this is that some of the parchments are color-coded, allowing only certain characters to pick them up. This can be a nuisance when you have one character standing on these parchments, unable to pick them up, and the actual character needed to pick them up on the opposite side of the level, awaiting their orders from the player.

The puzzles can be a bit shallow sometimes. There was one instance where a series of pressure plates were laid out in front of me, and three of them had to be activated to open the next door. Above these plates was a plaque that only Tao could read. Reading it tells you what plates to stand on, usually in the form of a riddle, which is nice, but some of them were a little too easy for my tastes. Along with the parchments that can be collected, there is a treasure chest hidden in each level. Finding the chest unlocks an illustration, just another bonus collectible to find.

It’s also worth mentioning that I ran into a game-breaking bug twice. I had to press a button to open a door, and upon pressing the button, it showed the door opening, then immediately closing. I thought I had messed up somewhere, but upon exiting and restarting the game, the door stayed open and I could continue with the game. This happened to me in the first and third worlds. Both occurring near the end of the level, which was quite annoying, having to restart the level.

The game’s graphics were awesome. In-between levels, cutscenes would play with the style of the original anime and leaves me wondering if these cutscenes were actually in the anime themselves. I’m sure fans of the original show would appreciate that. The animation for the characters was smooth, but could be clunky at times, especially when walking across platforms that can be turned with a lever. Overall, the art style was very charming and I really liked it. Although not memorable, the music was great and fit the theme of the game well.

Definately a great game for children, nice little puzzles with various environments, following the story of the second series of the programme. Xbox controller supported so it's very easy to play, although mouse and keyboard was quite easy too.

The graphics are lovely and bright, they have managed to capture the look of the series down the pixel.

Also helped teach my boy the basics of stealth gameplay, he'll be playing Dishonored in no time!

This was nostalgia induced buy for me.

However, game itself is very enjoyable. Riddles remind me of Lost Vikings style of game.
There are 5 chapters each with about 1h of play, depending how fast you are solving the challenges.
Levels are not too hard but not too dumb either.
Difficulty should be enough to make it a nice challenge for younger audience and good entertainment for those born in the 80 that remember original series.

Position In Game At Time Of Review: the 2nd act in China

YES, the nostalgia kicks in once you see the 3 kids and it won't be long until you start humming the tune lol. BUT even though it may seem to totally represent the early 80s cartoon, this is in fact based upon the NEW MCoG that is currently showing on tv of their adventures in China! So DO NOT expect the same voice overs, show intro, and locations...even though a huge majority is still intact from the 80s cartoon show. Now that that's said, let's get to the actual game. It's a puzzler. Based on 3 kids alternating to solve puzzles. The puzzles are not difficult at all and doesn't take more of an elementary level of knowledge to solve. I would definitely recommend this for kids, but for grown ups I would only recommend it for people who remembered and loved the early 80s show.

Rating: 5/10

From what I've seen, this is an interesting puzzler, but I think the experience of tracking down the show and watching it first would be better than a game of spoilers. I have to say I've been a fan of the original since it first aired in the 80's, so hearing the new voices was a bit jarring. For anyone just jumping into the series, lore is irrelevant, as is knowledge of the original series. It stands well on its own. Still, I can't see anyone that isn't already a fan picking this up. It's a boost of nostalgia, but I wouldn't recommend it as an introduction to the series.

Nostalgia obviously plays a huge role when it comes to such a classic license but this game is good enough to stand out on its own. The basic gameplay is engaging but with a gentle difficulty curve that makes it suitable for younger players. Experienced players can aim for all the optional goals to up the challenge.

Cute puzzle game with nice graphics. Only recommended if you're familiar with the animated show (old or new) as there are plenty of cut scenes with no context and there's no introduction to the story and characters.

Enjoyable game with nice cartoon cutscenes but it's pretty easy. Though the collectibles are quite challenging especially at some late levels. If you are playing in Arabic, there are few noticeable language mistakes. Good game.

The Mysterious Cities of Gold has it all... the theme music, crazy anime & all the fun of the old cartoon. If you remember this from children's TV series, you will love it!! From the opening sequence to the great cuts scenes you will be back in your childhood. I only hope they remake Ulysses 31 as a film.. Barry Gibb in the lead roll!!!

As someone who saw the series when I was younger, i was intrigued by this game and I finally picked it up this week. I have played half an hour and done 3 of the 30 levels and I am happy with this purchase, the nostalgia alone makes it worth while.

The gameplay is simple, you control the 3 main characters and you need to move them around in the level activating switches, floor tiles and other things while evading enemies scattered around. you can collect scrolls, keys an 1 special chest per level and if you do this by beating the time allotted, you`ll get 3 stars so for a completionist, it will have replay value.

The cutscenes are just amazing and true to the original series, I would recommend if you have seen it to play in the language you know them from, it will add to the nostalgia, I played the game in French.

Overall, I would rate this game an 8 out of 10 and with he current sale at 50% off, I would suggest you grab it.

I was one of the Kickstarter backers for this game, after watching the original series as a child I loved these characters. Its a simple game to play, good looking graphics and a excellent port to PC and iOS from the Wii U that it was designed for. Love the game, buy it for your kids.

I like this style of game, I like anime, and I like kids stuff. This game was so painful I couldn't keep playing! The game mechanics are frustrating(click, wait, click, wait) and make me feel like it's the 90s again. The anime-style cut scenes and narration are so squeaky and hyper active I wanted to skip every moment, and the sound levels were so poorly balanced that one scene would SHRIEK then the next would be a murmur. Ugh. I may find a mood that suits playing this game, and certainly the puzzles have potential (though they are literally identical to the Sims catacomb quests only less enjoyable), but this will definitely be staying at the bottom of my "to play" pile.
