Take on the role of Joan Jade, archeologist of the year and mother extraordinaire, as she searches for Hidden Objects, solves mind-melting puzzles and beats one ingenious minigame after another in Joan Jade and the Gates of Xibalba!

    No proper review on this since it's been a long time since I played it, but I remember a few things very well. First is that the graphics are very nice. I found the fact that Joan kept leaving her husband behind as she forged ahead amusing Joan Jade and the Gates of Xibabla 3286387481

    The gameplay is formulaic, with a certain amount of adventure, hidden objects, then puzzle, and repeat, but still, it was a fun and interesting game to play.

    There is some great humor involved, too. For example: Joan, our main character, has just chopped up a big, fibrous tree root, and her comment afterward is, "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm OK."

    Ahahahaha! It was worth buying the game just for the sudden unexpected giggle!

    For those who don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you should look up The Lumberjack Song by Monty Python Joan Jade and the Gates of Xibabla 2981382511
