You, with a group of mercenaries, guard someone else's base.

In the first Arctic Quest, players defeated the Snow King, who was turning Earth into an icy prison for all living creatures. Now, his son sets out to finish the task. To foil his evil plans, you must solve 100 inlay puzzles. Each one will challenge you to capture shards of ice and then place them within the outline of an exotic creature to bring it back to life. Allow the surrounding waters to fill up with excess ice, though, and you'll lose.

For everyone complaining about the speed, clicking on the snail temporarily slows the speed down. You can also click on the pufferfish to fill spaces with water, the jellyfish to destroy pieces of ice and the crab to smash the ice into small triangles. Hope this helps. :)

This game is addictive, I'm already up to the pirhana on level 7.9.

I have to agree with #79(melc)
WHY does the speed have to be so darned fast,after the normal pace of the first few?
Swan mentioned this too.
The speed IS outrageous!
Perhaps offer two game plays, ..one the quick paced one, and one a puzzle type with no speed limit. That would be much more relaxing(and less carpal tunnel causing)
I am sad as otherwise it seems a fine game.

Love these kinds of games, I've gotten at least three of them via Real Arcade. Looks like this one makes four. Definitely a keeper. Installed and plays perfectly.

very good game indeed, but the tutorial is somewhat annoying...
and then as you get to play more you get to like it more and more, untill... it starts to speed up on you... gives you bigger stuff to fill and random useless junk and gets harder and harder after only a few levels, you'll never get past a third of it, let alone finish this, unless you get to slow it down using third party software...
i would have kept the speed for the last few sublevels
i know a friend of mine who bought it and only played untill she had to quit it due to the outrageus speed thrown at her

they took the fun out from a very good game indeed
cuz no one likes to try a level 20 times and still be unable to finish it due to the outrageos speed it gets at after only very few levels
too bad a good one to give a try but nothing to return to replay again

as soon as you get into the speed levels
you'll never want to see it again

When running at higher resolutions (1280x1024) & full screen (I'm also running dual monitors) - after a few minutes/levels the graphics/sprites start to corrupt. as seen here. Reducing resolution back to 1024x768 seems to fix the graphics problem.

Oh crackers. Lol! Solved the Tutorial issue. Actually, I had NOT finished the tutorial as I thought. The last piece still needs to be placed and not dropped in the water. THEN the map appears. Hope you others have gotten out of it also.

Help Folks! Luv this GAOTD... luved the first one. But I can't get out of Tutorial either, and I see I'm not alone. Have uninstalled and reinstalled, but after the tutuorial it just sits there, and no map appears... nothing. Just in limbo. And if I click back to Main and Play again, the Tutorial starts over. Anyone solved this???

For those who get 60 minute limitation, read the instructions contained in readme.txt, and follow them TO THE LETTER. The instructions vary from day to day, depending on how the game is packaged. Today, this means:

"Installation

Unzip the package you`ve downloaded and run the activation program
Activate.exe
which is included in the package, then run Setup.exe to install the software.

You have to install it before the Giveaway offer for the software is over.


Terms and conditions

Please note that the software you download and install during
the Giveaway period comes with the following important limitations:
1) No free technical support
2) No free upgrades to future versions
3) Strictly non-commercial usage"

This next quote is written just under the download link, you may have missed it. It basically tells you just what I've said now:
"Unzip the package you've downloaded, and carefully read the instructions which you can find in the readme.txt file. This readme.txt file is included with all our downloads. Follow the instructions carefully to install and activate the software."

While I'm quoting bits of text anyway:

"Please comment only the software here. If you have technical problems or suggestions on our project, please leave us a note in our forums."

Thanks Helen, great minds think alike, lol. ;) Atlantis Sky Patrol really is one of the best of this genre (IMO); it keeps me on my toes yet is relaxing at the same time. Today’s game is almost as good. If you do like Artic Quest 2 do try '7 Lands' as well, which I personally think takes the medal just by an inch; with even more beautiful graphics and slightly more complex shapes and better power ups than today’s offering. However if you're on a budget, today’s game is a steal for free and should bring many hours of enjoyment. (Just noticed RetroBoy comment #12 brought up the 7 Land comparison...hadn't read it previously, honest :) )


7 Lands demo:

Images:

For those having problems getting to play today’s giveaway, check that you have Direct X. It is needed to run the game and is available as a free download from:

http://english.icrfast.com/lv/group/view/kl26823/DirectX.htm

Also you need to meet the minimum spec's which are very reasonable at only a 600MHz processor and 128Mb RAM. (These are specs from pre millennium times)

If you only have the demo version, make sure that when you unzip the package from the giveaway mirrors that you activate it first. Once it's confirmed that it's successfully activated then and only then click on the set up file. Alternatively, if you've already installed it, click on the activate icon and once it's loaded, turn of your computer and re boot

This is definitely a game not to be miss! Even for adults, it is fast paced and difficulty increases as you progress to higher levels.
I encountered the 60 minute trial version the first time I downloaded this game. I uninstalled it, deleted the zip file and download again, this time using the mirror link and no more trial version.
Hope this could help those who have similiar problem.

Hey a tip i don't know if this will help but the other thing i did different when reinstalling is i chose to play the game with the check when it installs the first time i didn't do this i clicked the icon so maybe that might have something to do with the glitch. I really like this game though and had a hard time pulling myself away from it to go get my son at the airport but back home and going to go play it some more:) lol

Wow, I have uninstalled and downloaded numerous times...using both links....changing screen size....etc. It definitely activated properly....but I STILL cannot get past tutorial on my Vista laptop OR my XP desktop. What now? I really want to be able to play this game. I have a different version of a similar game that the entire family loves.

I loved the first one ... can't play it on this stupid ancient laptop but hopefully I can transfer it over to the desktop when I get it repaired!

And #1 I also like puzzle games but this one has a lot of twists and turns and is quite challenging to the mind. I try to do as many mind challenging games as possible to keep the altzheimer's at bay as long as possible!!!

For those of you with only 60 min of play, try activating the program. If you're running vista, run as administrator.

Alawar is a partner I always download.

#41 - try this. Uninstall it and reinstall. AFTER you install the game, go back and find the folder where you unzipped the files and double click the orange "Activate" folder with the key on it. It should make a Screen from Game Giveaway of the Day appear to tell you you did it right.

#37 - turn off Hardware Acceleration in Options. It took forever to even load the tutorial if that was on. I turned it on and it worked as normal. Considering I'm running 2.4 GHz, the slowness was surprising.

Now I'm happy. I had no trouble getting out of the tutorial either. As soon as I had one piece in the water, the fire out and three symbols in the air, it automatically said "Level Complete". If you're not getting this, maybe you should try to download again (I used the mirror site) and install it again.

I wrote the game is nice and that is absolutely true.
But for me it is to difficult.
I can't keep up with the speed.
Are there more people who find the speed to high?
I play a lot of games and this is the highest speed ever.
You can not make it go any slower :-(
