SECRET MISSION – THE FORGOTTEN ISLAND


by FROGWARES; BIGFISH GAMES

Jud’s Game Rating:

Graphics: *****  Player participation (PP) *****  Satisfaction Factor (SF) *****

Frustration Factor (FF)  *     Fair Play (FP) **** Tedium Factor Nil

This is a great game!  As the game is set on a new island in the Bermuda Triangle, the graphics are those of gorgeous island scapes, clear and colourful on the whole.  There are Easy and Hard gameplay modes, and you can adjust the Gamma setting to the degree of light and clarity that you want.  Hooray!  The Strategy Guide can be bought through BigFish Link in Main Menu.

You have to find 2 blue quartz crystals in each Hidden Object site to add to the rescue beacon.  But your main goal is to locate and use coloured crystals to release the crystallised lovers imprisoned by the crystal tree.  The story unfolds via these crystals at each placement, and is an important part of the game.

NB:  The puzzles are okay on the whole, but the wire puzzle and the slide button puzzles are time-consuming and a bit of a pain.  The positioning of your cursor is vital in the wasp nest problem – it’s obvious what you must do, but the game doesn’t seem to want to let you do it.  Persevere.

I really liked this game and bought it.  Thus I recommend it.

About judsartwork

I write reviews of Adventure and Hidden Object games that are Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, Renovation, Travel, Quest and/or Mystery by genre. I have a Masters in Writing (2006) and have been writing novels, both crime and fantasy for many years; plus Haiku, verse, and prose both fictional and literary. I am also an artist of modern, Acrylic, textural and hard edge work, underwater, fantasy, expressionist, and Cosmos paintings. I use mixed media (Acrylic, Watercolour, Pastels) in textural Monoprints, finding surprises to expose within each work. Having both an analytical and creative mind has meant that I have strong powers of observation, and the persistence required to follow computer problems through till I solve them. Of course I am not always successful, but am willing to ask for a little help in order to then unlock the main problem myself. My Troubleshooting Blog, 'Problems and Solutions', was the result of my tenacity.
