    Review from Nov. 14, 2010

    Atlantis: Mysteries of Ancient Inventors (HOG)

    Options (Settings) include Music, Sound, Full-screen and custom
    cursor. There is a TIMED or Relaxed mode - I went with Timed just for
    the halibut

    On the main menu there are Ranks, which show which player finished
    the fastest, and Achievements, which shows the awards you have won (not
    sure if this is for the timed option only, or if you get awards in
    relaxed mode, as well). It looks like you can also unlock a "Free
    Search" mode.

    The opening sequence is long and drawn out, though it is SKIPPABLE.

    HINTS are refillable, and fill fast. It does not detract from your
    score to use a hint. Fast-clicking will eventually get you a penalty -
    3 minutes off of your time (and the timer is generous, should you
    choose to have one).

    There are some localization problems with the game* - the grammar
    is so-so, and I've never called a flashlight an "electric torch". Items
    are used automatically. When I needed a key to open a locked
    briefcase, I kept looking for an inventory so that I could use the key.
    Turns out I was wasting my time, for when I clicked on the briefcase
    again, it opened just fine (using the key for me).

    Up to eight items-to-find are listed at once, and the list refills
    as you find items. There is a gauge at the bottom that shows how many
    objects are left.

    Next up is find 20 compasses, then find all the keys, then back to finding items by list, then find-items-by-silhouette.

    The mini-games vary, starting with a swap-to-move-pieces puzzle
    (NOT a slider), then a crossword (Ugh!) and so on. The mini-games are
    part of the storyline, always a nice touch. No hints during the minis,
    but there is a SKIP button.

    The music is okay, but it gets tiresome after a while.

    The graphics are pleasant, no tiny objects, most items are placed appropriately.

    I had no technical troubles during the 45 minutes I played this game.

    *This game was updated November 8, 2010 and again on
    November 11, 2010. I do not know which version I played, so the
    localization and grammar problems may have been fixed since I
    downloaded. If you like straight hidden object games, give the game a
    try!
