In Brief
Atlantis: Mysteries of Ancient Inventors is a Hidden Object game where the main character Anna discovers a fragment of an ancient map that leads to Atlantis and treasure.
Installation:
Atlantis: Mysteries of Ancient Inventors downloads to a 94.8 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set-up file and a read me). To install Atlantis: Mysteries of Ancient Inventors click on the orange key file labelled set up; do not click on the setup.gcd file. This is a security file that contains Themida code. Those with multiple hard drives can save games on any drive they wish, just change the default installation path. The newly installed game is 98.5 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if preferred:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Atlantis - Mysteries of Ancient Inventors
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop, three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the ''additional tasks'' window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)

t's never known for a certainty where one can find the greatest adventure. Even a very simple day-to-day activity can spark one's life. Atlantis. Mysteries of Ancient Inventors suggests that sometimes all you need to get into a splendid journey is to visit your relatives. Especially, if your grandfather is a great archaeologist who is, by the way, widely known due to mysterious artefacts. The main character of Atlantis. Mysteries of Ancient Inventors used to have a slow and pretty boring life until she goes to see her relative who's been working as an archaeologist with new excavations. The area has been quite explored and nothing was found out there so the granddad asks his favourite granddaughter, who has an archaeological experience, to help him because of lack of skilled workers. Having nothing better to do, she accepts his offer and gets involved in excavations. It seems to be the very boring piece of work until, suddenly, the girl finds an ancient map. She dares to assume that it could be a renowned lost map belonged to people of Atlantis who were famous having the keys to the mysteries of the Universe. A legend says that once Elders of Atlantis became aware of the catastrophe that would happen to Atlantis and put an end to their civilization, they decided to store the most valuable treasures. Due to lack of time there was only a single map that shows the way to the lost treasure. Although her grandfather doesn't believe in this legend, he agrees to help the girl in unexpected excitement journey. Bring a piece of sudden adventure in your life with Atlantis. Mysteries Of Ancient Inventors!

The Game:
is a standard Adventure Hidden Object Game. Unfortunately, I’ve only had a short time to play the game today due to family commitments; so haven’t prepared a full review. The images and video links I’ve posted should give you a good idea as to whether the game is worth downloading. I found the first few HOG scenes easy enough to find and the mini games (a map and word search, reasonably challenging
For those who find word searches tedious I have posted an almost complete solution to the first word search in the forums HERE.

I’ve only played this game for a short time. My initial feelings are that is a decent HOG game worth downloading. Sorry for the lack of details.

If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Atlantis: Mysteries of Ancient Inventors to work please visit the problems section, which you can find in the FAQ's thread HERE. Also read through the community’s comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted. The main issue we have is with the giveaway wrapper, which uses a Themida based code to protect the games executable. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide malware; so, as a precaution, some security software may block the installation and sometimes even delete the executable file. Blocking or deletion is usually determined partly by the way your computer is set up. Usually you'll get a message saying ''the file is corrupted'', but, the files are okay. There are a couple of things you can do to overcome this issue. The first is to reboot in safe mode with networking, install the game then reboot, or secondly you can (at your own risk) temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then turn your security back on. A note of reassurance to those that choose the latter and quicker method. The game giveaway team have been giving away games for over a decade (Dec 2006 & prior to that, via the main site 2 or 3 times weekly from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006) and have 'NEVER' given away a game infected with malware; they always test every giveaway with several of the top anti-malware suites to ensure all games are free from malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, if you have a problem getting the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve or if you have a game to offer the community you can do so HERE

Have installed this game twice and it has locked up both times after one of the mini games. The mini game is completed but the game will go no further. I can close the game but cannot play any further.

Something I've been discovering with some of these recent offerings is that after I close it down and exit back out to my standard desktop resolution, most of the icons in my lower right system tray are gone and don't know how to get them back other than restarting the entire machine which is problematic a lot of times since I have other things going on that I don't want to interrupt with the restart.

Hi!
Downloaded a little slow, and opened fine! The graphics are good and game play is
smooth so far. I haven't experienced a stall thus far. The game is constant hog and
puzzles, which is great for those who like to be busy with games and enjoy hogs!
There is nothing outstanding with it, but I am at beginning stages. I might update
the graphics a bit. I like the game so far. Have a good week, Lee

Sorry..Way too many problems with dead ends where items are found, then nowhere to move on. Also, whoever did the music needs to find a new hobby...it's hideous.

Thought I'd give it one more try. Disappointing results. Game is stuck in an endless loop. This is obviously not a current version. Game is stuck where I'm cleaning grandfather's desk. Over and over. I finish one cleaning, it puts me right back to clean again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Some things to find are the same each time, some different (but always 4 pieces of paper). No way out. Fail. :(

Thanks for all your help, though, Whiterabbit. :) I came back mainly because I missed your comments, but will keep missing them because it's a waste to download a game I can't play beyond the first couple of screens in this case.

No go on Windows 10 x64 Pro. Tries to run, pauses like loading, then boom to desktop. No time to mess with settings especially after the many problem comments here. Thanks for those as I'll be skipping trying the Big Fish version. As mentioned likely old game. Thanks anyway GOTD.

First off, I didn't have any trouble with the "grandfather" room, but be aware it does have many HOG scenes associated with it and you will jump from one to the other without much pause. If you are having problems with it, look for "sparkles" in the room that you can click on. Second, make sure you have all your patches installed, especially graphics. Ran fine on Windows 10 Home Edition 64 bit, Windows applied some compatibility settings automatically which I have no idea what they were, but with apparent success. At first I was not able to run the program in windowed mode, but at exit, I noticed a settings button at the bottom right hand corner which I used to make the desired changes. If you are visually impaired, you probably prefer the full screen mode. Only complaint is that the dialogues between characters are split so that one talks at the top of the screen and the other talks at the bottom of the screen, making it harder to follow. I would prefer one just below the other and center of the screen unless there is something in the background that needs to be visible. I'm not using sound so the text is how I follow conversations.

Installed on Win 7 Home Prem with no issues. Was able to play the game until it got "stuck" in the library with no way out. All items were "found" and the arrow key did not have the "twinkling stars" to go to another area of the game. Came out of game, and tried to restart... took me to the same place in the game... so, I'm stuck. Will uninstall. I did not care for the graphics as well as some of the other games. I always turn music off as I usually find it quite annoying. Seemed very childish, however, for a child, it may be okay. Would not want to pay money for this game. So sorry... Thank you for all the other games you have us "sample".

Can someone tell us whether the 'Grandfather's Table' problem has been fixed? If not, I won't bother downloading. Thanks

It is too complicate to register ...may be some other day ,thank you ,best regards

..................................Moderator comment.....................................

Hi Trofin, there is no registration involved. You just click on the orange exe file and the game will install. If you are referring to getting the file, you can either go via Facebook or input your e-mail and a link will be sent to your email. There is no registration involved with this game.

I'm having a "showstopper" problem with this game (which, otherwise, I'm enjoying!).
When I complete the Grandfather's Table location, the game resets the score to zero and repeats that location, apparently endlessly.
Is anyone else having that problem? My system is Windows 7.

Reply   |   Comment by Cad delworth  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Cad delworth, I am experiencing the same in Windows 10. Have unistalled and re-installed as administrator without Antivirus programme running - still the same stuck on grandfather's table and no way out.

Reply   |   Comment by Computrefee  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Cad delworth, I don't find any patches for this game but it is a Big Fish Game so they have a technical topic in their forum for this game and I found people had some issues. Some of it looked like their computers, others might be that it's possibly an older game.

Reply   |   Comment by Therese S.  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Therese S., thanks for that information.
I'll try the game in some compatibility modes and see whether or not any of them help, then report back!
In case it was mentioned in those forums, I'm currently using Fullscreen and Windows Cursor.

..................................Moderator comment.....................................

Hi Cad, I've posted links to two Big Fish forum pages where you may find help. Sorry I can't be of assistance today. I've not had time to play todays game long enough, nor think about any issues. Got some family business to sort and promised some quality time with the family.

Reply   |   Comment by Cad Delworth  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Therese S., I have now tried every compatibilty setting with the same problem.

I may try running the game in a virtual XP operatring system, but it's not looking good. :(

Reply   |   Comment by Cad Delworth  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Cad Delworth, looks like every location has multiple HOG scenes, so you might have a graphics card that can't keep up. I don't know what your OS is but my laptop is fairly new and I have the maximum RAM for this system, which means no memory problems as long as the software is properly designed.

Reply   |   Comment by Therese S.  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Cad delworth, I'm having the same problem. I'm using Windows 10, 64 bit. I can't move on. Stuck in an endless loop. :(

Installation without any problems. Warnings about the resolution, which I skipped this time. Started in relaxed mode, which is too easy for a player who played this kind of HOG's before. The music is already very annoying after 10 minutes of gameplay. The reaction of the game on mouse movements and clicks is not the fastest, which is the most visible when playing "Find XX objects in the room."
The thing I disliked most is the lack of challenge. The puzzles and scenes are way to easy, the conversations are a bit childish...let's say this is a beginners game for HOG players.
I would improve the music score and lower the price, because it is an old game and not very spectaculair. Even the thema, Atlantis, is a total cliché.

gamer, try not skipping the tutorial! ;)

gamer, it is an object with quotes so that means there is another component. you needed a key for the briefcase so you need a battery for the flashlight. it is on the table in the lower right corner...drag it to the flashlight and you will collect the flashlight. :)
