The Mysterious Cities of Gold was probably among the cartoons I was watching when I was a kid. I don't remember well the story in itself but the main song yeah.

So, I'm glad to have that game in my library. Esteban, Zia and Tao learn about a possible City of Gold in China and go there. But once there, between pirates, bandits and several puzzles, how will they manage?

The story is told also with cinematics that gives you the feeling that you're watching an episode of the series, though I must say that some sequences didn't really make sense at all.

The gameplay makes you take control of the three characters, with their own special tricks: Esteban can activate special pillars as the chosen one, Zia can get through small cracks and Tao can read every inscription you'll find so that you can solve the puzzle without forgetting that the parrot, Pichu, that is hanging with Tao, can steal keys.

The game is mainly about that: finding dragon stones, use them either to solve a riddle needing 4 people for plates that are activated when there is a weight on them or to open doors, sneak out areas with enemies (and trying not to get captured), etc.. It's true that for an adult, the game may be seen very very repetitive and very easy to manage (though some puzzles are kinda hard) but the game is pleasant, mainly because of challenges (time, captures, scrolls to collect and even a treasure chest with pictures to unlock).

Anyway, you can retry a level as you want and with achievements to unlock, you'll have to negociate some levels very very well to earn them. It's not always easy to do a speedrun by collecting all scrolls and avoiding captures when enemies's patterns are letting you only a small frame of time to act.

While the game is set in China, you can see a diversity of background: jungle, monastery, Forbidden City, even a City of Gold and caves too. The soundtrack is sticking also to the series.

The three little downsides I've experienced aren't really breaking but as I keep my finger pressing on the left click button to lead character, I often see them go where I don't want and be captured. Also, during a level, I was captured as Tao and suddenly, I had a close-up. I switched characters and everything was back to normal. Also, I was used to restart at one point and then suddenly, the game threw me back to an earlier phase, meaning that I had to restart it as I was aiming for a perfect level for achievement.

I find the 15 bucks price tag a little too high for the game, but if anything, if in discount or in a bundle, you can go ahead for many childhood memories!

먼 옛날 방영되었던 애니메이션 <태양소년 에스테반>을 리메이크한 김에 홍보차 만든 듯한 게임.
(사실 이 게임 하면서 태양소년 에스테반이 뭔질 알았다... 그 전엔 이름만 들었지,)
태그에 "인디"가 붙어있길래 시작하긴 했는데, 왠지 애니메이션 제작사 측에서 어디 인디 팀에 외주를 맡겼거나, 아니면 이 게임 만들기위해 급히 팀을 꾸렸거나 일 듯 하다. 어느 쪽이던 간에 어쨌던 게임이 재미있으니 크게 상관은 없겠지만.

애니메이션 홍보용 게임치고는 꽤나 잘 만들었다. 세 어린이들의 명랑쾌활한 메탈 기어 솔리드.
아무래도 등장인물들 연령대가 초딩 연령대이니만큼 그렇게 무서운 장면 같은건 전혀 나오지 않는다. 다만, 난이도까지 초딩스럽지는 않다. 그렇다고 또 너무 어려운 수준은 아니긴 하지만. 생각보다 철저한 경비들의 감시통 빠져나가는게 쉽지만은 않을 것이고, 특히 중후반부에 도드라지는 퍼즐들도 골치 꽤나 썩일 것이다.

게임 자체는 그닥 단점을 꼬집어낼만한 부분이 별로 안 보이는데, 챕터 중간중간에 나오는 애니메이션이 조금 어색하다. 특히 장면에서 장면 넘어가는 부분이 굉장히 부자연스로운데, 이게 제법 눈에 띄는 수준이라 좀 깬다. 원작이 애니메이션일진데 팬들에게 특히 까일 부분이 아닐까 싶다.

그래도 꽤나 유쾌하고 재밌었던 잠입(혹은 유적 탐사) 게임.
그러니 트레이딩 카드 좀...

Full review: http://www.cublikefoot.com/review/the-mysterious-cities-of-gold-secret-paths-cub-game-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.
