For a hidden object game, Lost Civilization is a very well-done game, certainly one of the best that I've played. While on the short side (what HOG isn't), the few hours that you spend clicking around the screen is worth the story. And the fact that you do more than just find junk hidden throughout screens that'll make a hoarder blush makes it worth playing. I'd actually consider this title more of a hybrid of HOG and PnC adventure game because it has you solve puzzles in addition to randomly clicking on a cluttered screen. Any fan of hidden object games should feel right at home playing this one.

With a gripping plot, Lost Civilization is definitely one of the better "casual games" I've played. Most hidden object games can be quite dull, but this one feels like a hybrid between a hidden object game and a traditional point and clicker. Many of the puzzles in the game are well thought out and well executed. However, the voice acting (not that there was much) definitely could use some work. Also, the game was quite short, but I think in games like this, shorter is sometimes better. Overall, Lost Civiilization is another winner for Phoenix Online. 7/10.

Short, sweet. The protangonist is occasionally a ♥♥♥♥♥, the geography and depiction of real places is hazy at best and you are of course beset by a strange desire to rifle through dumpsters hunting random objects for no apparent reason - this is of course par for the course in any hidden object game though!

The good: The puzzles are quite fun, the addition of a sort of reverse hidden object game where you have a bunch of random objects and have to place them within the scene is quite nice and the vague attempt at a narrative is not nearly as bad as some I've encountered.

The bad: Hidden object games that have a tendancy to pop up behind you meaning you are forced to constantly backtrack over areas you thought were complete in order to find an object which the game has only just deemed you worthy of being allowed to find. Complete inability to hold onto my cursor despite running full screen meant it kept creeping into my other monitors and I'd find myself simultaneously clicking in and out of game at the same time.

Overall: Probably not worth the price tag shown but as an amusing couple of hours distraction if you can pick it up cheap, it's not too bad.

if you like hidden object games, youll love this game or enjoy it very much
some sections of the game drawn out at times, though i havent finished the story you might like it.
its related to technology and the protagonist is and archaelogist . good voice acting that helps you inmerse yourself in the game.

Too simple and over too quickly. If you can pick it up for around $0.50, then I'd say it might be worth it. But still, it's just an easy little filler point-and-click and hidden object game. Even though it says six hours on record, it probably took me less than an hour total to complete. I am a homeschooler, so I often leave games up while I'm actually taking care of or teaching the kids, cooking, watching T.V., or playing Minecraft.
