I may not have time to add any images and tidy up the review; but will later today if I can find some spare time. I've really busy with some important personal stuff that needs to be addressed before Monday .

In Brief:
Lost Civilization is an adventure puzzle platformer. It was originally given away on March 11, 2018 where it received a positive 85% from 33 votes with 29 comments, which you can see HERE. You can also see a few videos of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE, as well as Big Fish community reviews of the game HERE, and more in the Big fish forums HERE, plus other feedback/reviews from the Steam community HERE and HERE. You can also see full review of the game by Marcus Estrada originally posted June 19th 2014 HERE.

To get a better feel for a game when reading reviews; it's always better to read more than one as every review has a slightly different take on the game they are reviewing. I've posted two more full reviews below in 'The Game' section.

The Game:
Review 1:
Lost Civilization, originally released by Phoenix Online Studios’ follows a slightly nonsensical story through the beautiful city of Prague to the darkest corners of Mayan civilization. Combining both adventure gaming elements and simple logic puzzles with hidden object scenes, it falls under the interesting “adventure-lite” genre.

You play as Sarah, a graduate archaeologist student who is on the hunt for a mysterious gateway to an undiscovered land. She follows hot on the heels of her boyfriend, Michael, who has sadly been kidnapped by some strange mystery criminal types, clearly with their own agenda for the archaeological find. Along the way you will find yourself tapping around numerous environments, solving bizarre but simple puzzles and meeting various strange characters. The game is fairly casual, and its handy hint system means that there’s really no chance of getting stuck no matter the mode you initially choose. Disappointingly, it also means that there’s not much here for adventure puzzlers to get truly stuck into, as each of the puzzles seem quite disjointed and fail to really make much sense.

What’s true is that unusual puzzles of this nature have been around since the dawn of time, and casual gamers will probably enjoy it just for what it is - a simple natured puzzle game with a fairly “average” storyline. There’s always fun to be had though, whether it’s scaring pigeons with firecrackers or breaking and entering by distracting a guard. There’s no reason to sit around in confusion here, everything is fairly obviously marked out or hinted at, and the game itself will only set you back a few hours.

Perfectly suited for fans of hidden object games, Lost Civilization manages to keep things fresh by employing a new mechanic of searching through the “useless crap.” Every so often, you’ll be tasked with matching two items together and be prompted to search the environment from top to bottom to get to the bottom of a puzzle and retrieve a “useful” item in turn. It makes no sense, sure, but it certainly is a breath of fresh air compared to the usual scramble for missing items. As someone who doesn’t usually enjoy hidden object games, it added something different to the mix.

Where Lost Civilization earns major points is its top-notch quality graphics and beautiful painted environments. Every scene is greatly detailed and coloured to a remarkable degree, enough to make you realise just how much effort has gone into the artwork of the game. There’s also the occasional voice acting, however, it’s far too sporadic to warrant an opinion.

All in all, Lost Civilization is a gentle gaming experience, perhaps aimed at the majority of families or the younger generation of gamers. We don't post many of these hidden object games around here, but Lost Civilization seems to be a cut above the rest.

Review 2:
Lost Civilization is categorized on Steam as “Adventure,” “Casual,” or “Point and Click.” I’m not sure about the first one, but it is definitely the second two. Personally I think of adventure games as more akin to Tomb Raider, but I guess in the sense that the storyline takes you on an adventure, it could be considered an adventure game.

The game has three difficulty settings casual, normal, and expert. The first two are basically the same, but the time between hints is longer on the normal setting. In the expert setting the interactive zones are not highlighted like they are in casual and normal. I played on normal.


Interactive areas are indicated by a magnifying glass or a glowing dot when not in the expert setting. I had some trouble right off the bat. The game didn’t like my widescreen monitors (events since then have led me to believe it’s my computer, not the game). The picture was partially off the screen, so I had to play in window mode. Luckily that ended up being the only glitch I ran into.

You start the game in your office, doing paper work, when you get a call from your uncle. Your fiancé, Michael, is helping him with a research project and they need your help. You agree, but your fiancé doesn’t meet you at the appointed place and time. The adventure part of the game is figuring out what your uncle and fiancé were researching, so that you can find Michael.

The game was a mix of puzzles and seek-and-find, which is nice since straight seek-and-find gets boring and straight puzzle games are sometimes frustratingly difficult. None of the puzzles were too difficult, although some of them did throw me for a loop for a short while.


You pick up a variety of items to use as you go along. Sometimes you just pick up the item and other times you have to solve a puzzle to get a needed item. One of the things that throw me for a loop was the “items to place” activity. I saw the screen and thought “seek and find.” It took me a minute or so of not finding anything on the list before I reread the directions and realized I was suppose to figure out where to put the items pictured in the inventory area.

Whiterabbit-uk,

Free or Discounted Games:
Please check Delenn's threads over in the giveaway forums HERE (non-Steam games) and HERE (Steam games) for the latest freebies. It's kept up to date frequently, (thanks for keeping this up to date Delenn, very much appreciated).

Steam Games:
For the latest Steam sales check THIS Steam database site out. You can list the games in 'price' & 'percentage off' order by clicking the headers. If you link SteamDB (the Steam database) with your Steam account, all games that you already have will be highlighted in green and those in blue are on your wish list. When there are Steam games being given away, you'll see the percentage off as 100%. It's worth checking this regularly to make sure you don't miss the best deals and freebies. There is an early access game presently free on Steam called KEO (usually £9.99).

Delenn usually posts links to all free games within several hours of them going live, so check her links in the first paragraph above.


If you have a Steam account and like to collect soon to be removed games, all five that were listed here; i.e. Far Sky, The free Ones, Sky Break, Knockout Checkers Chamber and Gods Remastered have now been removed from Steam. I don't know of any other outlet that sells any of these games, but, if you still wanted any of them, you may be able to find keys on the various sites that sell Steam key, but there's no guarantee that any will be available. If you've purchased any game that is later removed from the Steam store, you will still always be able to download and play it via your Steam library despite it no longer being available via Steam; that is unless its one of those Massive Multiplayer Online games where the only access is via the developers servers and no single player elements. Once the developers no longer support the game and close the servers down you can no longer access the game. (e.g. Defiance, Guardians of Ember, plus loads more).
Indie Gala:
Don't forget to check Indie Gala's freebie section HERE, then click on the Showcase header, selecting freebies from the drop down menu; the most recent additions include:
1) ... Vroom Racing (Drive a Formula 1 car upon 18 worldwide tracks : Reach 380 Km/h and beat the ghost !)

2) ... Out of Puberty: Chapter 1 (graphic novel, contains adult themes and NOT suitable for children.)

3) ... Project Restart (An anime visual novel, two versions English & Portuguese)

4) ... Pixel Puzzles 2: Anime ( Jigsaw Puzzle)

5) ... Cursed Sight (Anime visual novel with branching narratives)

6) ... Super Toy cars (ReRUN ... a tabletop arcade combat racing game)


Check the freebie section for the latest additions; if you've not visited for a while, also check the Showcase section for older freebies. All or most new freebies should be on the first page of the Showcase pages. We have been given over 340 games since I started to check the freebie section in 2018. But around 60% of those are no longer available free. The following recent freebies have now been removed from the free library: Spring Bonus, Little Kite, Last Dream, Unhack, Trainpunk Run, Pixel Puzzles 2: Paintings, Hamsterdam, Copperbell, Chainsaw Warrior, Leisure Suit Larry 2 Looking For Love (In Several Wrong Places), Leisure Suit Larry 1 - In the Land of the Lounge Lizards , Figment, Pixel Puzzles 2: Space, Revolution Ace, Six Sides of the World, Byte Family, Alone on Mars, Garfield Kart, Nostradamus the Last Prophecy, Snowball, Pixel Puzzles 2: Christmas , Die Young (Full version), Distortions, Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Kill Em All, Dead Hungry Diner, and Contract with the Devil.

Any game you claim while it's being offered is DRM free and will remain in your Indie Gala library permanently (unless Indie Gala goes bust) and can be downloaded at any time, under the showcase or freebie section; 115 games are still available. Not all games that go into the showcase remain free and are removed after a short period; e.g. the recent adventure puzzler Figment that costs almost £15 on Steam; so, you should grab them as quickly as you can. To find your games go to your account and from the drop down menu select 'My Library'. When the page opens find the 'Showcase' button in the banner along the top of the page and, from the drop down menu select 'Showcase'. There are only 8 games per page, so, if like me you have added hundreds to your account/library. Each page from your free list can take 30 or more seconds to move to the next page so it can take a good twenty minutes to get to the last page depending on how many of the free games you've claimed.
CD Keys:
Another decent site that you should check out regularly is CD Key HERE. They have some very good discounts on top notch AAA games for all the popular platforms (PC, PSN, Xbox, Nintendo), sometimes as much as 99% off. for example Madden NFL 22 is only £0.39 (usually £49.99), Grand Theft Auto V Premium Ed' 84% off (£7.99), Sims 4 85% off (£5.99), Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition £1.79 , Dying Light Platinum Edition 92% off (£5.29 - includes 22 of the paid for 26 DLC's, with a further 11 free DLC's available.), Assetto Corsa 83% off (£3.99), Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition 91% off (£2.99), Civilization VI Platinum Edition 91% off (£8.99), Cities Skyline 90% off (£3.09), Hitman GOTY Ed' 92% off (£3.99), Sniper Elite 4 83% off (£6.99), Stellaris 99% off (£0.19), The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series 86% off (£5.49), Battlefield V 85% off (£7.39), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 89% off (£0.79), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II : The Sith Lords 89% off (£0.79), Planet Coaster 83% off (£4.99), Injustice 2 92% off (£3.99), Kerbal Space Program 85% off (£4.49) this is included in the Stand with Ukraine bundle, Fallout 3 GOTY Ed' 80% off (£2.99), Fallout 4 91% off (£3.49), Tekken 7 90% off (£3.99), Garfield Kart: Furious Racing 92% off (£1.09), Dawn of War Franchise Pack 97% off (£3.19 usually £99), Assassins Creed: Unity 91% off (£3.49), Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker 95% off (£1.99), Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Deluxe Edition 86% off (£9.99), Outlast 2 90% off (£2.39), The Escapists 2 85% off (£2.99), Battlefield 1 Revolution 87% off (£7.99), Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior 2 89% off (£0.79), Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Season Pass Edition 96% off (£1.49), Elite Dangerous 84% off (£3.99), Killing Floor 2 89% off (£2.29), Lego: The Incredibles 93% off (£2.49), Lego: DC Super Villains 93% off (£2.49), Resident Evil Biohazard 90% off (£4.99), Resident Evil HD Remaster 87% off (£3.19), Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 91% off (£4.99), The Evil Within 92% (£2.49), Metro Exodus Gold Edition 83% off (£9.99), Shadow warrior 2 90% off (£3.59), Warhammer 40 000 Space Marine - Anniversary Ed' 93% off (£2.99) plus many more amazing deals.

Be sure to check that keys from CD Keys are redeemable in whichever country you live in (it details where it can be redeemed) as prices and the ability to redeem keys in particular countries may differ. I've quoted prices from the UK pages of CD keys. I recently got an Origin key for Star Wars: Squadrons for 99% off, costing me £0.34; it usually retails for £34.99, I also got 32% off a pre order copy of Dying Light 2 a couple of weeks before it was released in February, saving around £20 off the release price.
Epic Games:
The latest Epic Games have been given away previosuly i.e. called City of Brass - a first-person action adventure from senior BioShock developers. Armed with scimitar and a versatile whip, you’ll lash and slash, bait and trap your way to the heart of an opulent, Arabian Nights-themed metropolis – or face certain death as time runs out and even better Total War: WARHAMMER plus seven of the fourteen DLC addons are free as well. These were not included in the original giveaway. - The critically-acclaimed Total War: WARHAMMER combines a turn-based campaign of epic empire-building with colossal and explosive real-time battles, set within the incredible world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles; (it's not my favourite Total War title, but still excellent game play).

Next week from Thursday 7th April we will be getting Rogue Legacy - A genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your unique child will succeed you. One child might be colour-blind, another might be a dwarf with vertigo. But that's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be to succeed. and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - a first-person mystery focused on exploration and discovery. As an occult-minded detective Paul Prospero, piece together the truth behind Ethan’s disappearance — and the fate of his family.
Indie Bundles:
The best Indie Bundles sites that have been operating from around 2010 are the Humble Bundle and Indie Gala sites (though the latter isn't as good as it used to be, with most of the bundles containing cheap stocking fillers and a lot of 'adult only 'hentai like ' games). The Humble site is, in my opinion, the best; though a more recent addition that is worth checking out called Fanatical games, that used to be called Bundle Stars, looks to be a serious contender for that title as they have some very good bundles. Presently Fanatical hosts fifteen bundles:

Mystery Bounty Bundle
Build your own Ultimate VR Bundle 2
Build your own Slayer Bundle 5
Build your own Anime Bundle 4
Killer Bundle 21 Redux
Build your own Backstage Bundle 2
Diamond Collection: Build your own Bundle
Build your own Nitro Bundle 2
Platinum Collection: Build your own Bundle March (ends soon)
Indie Must Play Bundle
Build your own Spring Bundle
Guardian Bundle 6
Build your own All Stars 4 Bundle
RPG Maker Bundle
Journey Bundle
Build your own Puzzle Bundle
Grey Alien Games Bundle
Kings & Queens Bundle


You can find the Fanatical bundles page HERE.
The latest Humble Choice bundle went live Tue 1st March; it includes seven Steam games and one Origin game. Desperados III, Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Origin), Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, Red Solstice 2: Survivors, Nebuchadnezzar, Police Stories and Evan's Remains. Subscriptions to the Choice bundle have recently been changed, levelling the ground for all subscribers. The monthly cost is a meagre $12/£8.99 with other benefits such as access to a lot of indie titles for free while subscribed and a percentage off other purchases from the Humble store. This discount increases the longer you stay subscribed up to a year with 20% off all none bundle purchases. (1 month sub' gives 10% off, 3 months sub' gives 15% off and six months sub 'gives 17% off). The next Humble Choice bundle goes live Tuesday 5th April 22 next week.

The latest Humble Bundles include the following:

!) ... Europa Universalis IV: The Complete Collection Contains the base game plus 32 DLC's for £15.20 usually costs £390.89 (ends 13th April).

2) ... Killing Floor Collection - includes For at least £11.48 you get Killing Floor plus DLC; Mrs Foster Pack, The Chickenator Pack, Neon Character Pack, Neon Weapon Pack, Incursion (VR Only), Community Weapons Pack, Community Weapon Pack 2, Community Weapon Pack 3 - Us Vs Them Total Conflict Pack, Outbreak Character Pack. And Killing Floor 2, Killing Floor 2 Digital Deluxe Upgrade plus DLC's Armory Season Pass, Halloween 2020 Full Gear Bundle, Headshot FX Pack 1, Headshot FX Pack 2, Cardboard Knight Bundle, Mrs. Foster, Horzine Mark 7 Bundle, Christmas 2020 Full Gear Bundle. (ends Thursday 21st April 22).

Free Game Project:
I've restarted a project I originally started back in 2008 that used to be called Good Games to Grab, where I posted free games over in the forums on a daily basis; however, I won't be posting them daily this time, only as and when I have time and the inclination. You can find the new forum section entitled 'Free Game Project' HERE. So far, I've posted eight excellent PC games, plus one android game as well as suggested or linked to others similar to the ones posted. I'll be adding more as and when I have the time or the mood takes me over the coming months.

Amazon Prime Gaming:
If you have Amazon Prime you also get access to a new set of free games every month. The April freebies include the fantastic The Elder Scrolls Oblivion from GOG (You can find loads of mods, addons and other related files over on Nexus mods HERE. ModDB also have many files avaialble for the game HERE (files), HERE (add-ons) and HERE (mods).).

From Origin you get the 3D version of Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neigbourville (I'm really pleased to see this one; I was intending to buy it in the next Steam sale as it's been on my wish list since it's release) . Plus there are several other games from Plug in Digital and Lucas Arts free this month.

On top of those full game freebies there's also a shed load of add-ons and other DLC content for various Free to Play and commercial titles such as GTA V, Overwatch, League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Two Point Hospital, The Crew 2, Fall Guys, Blade & Soul, FIFA 22, Madden NFL 22 (the full game was free on Origin last month via Amazon Gaming, now you get some extra stuff to add to the game). Also extra's for Battlefield 2042, Splitgate, Gildwars 2, Black Desert Mobile, Warframe, Doom Eternal and over 20 other titles.


May's games will be live on Monday 2nd May.
Other Free or Discounted Games:
Black And White Apocalypse that was given away mid January (HERE) by the developer Hammergames is always free via Itch.io and can also be downloaded as a colour version. You can find both versions via the following links Black & White version, and Coloured version. :) Hammergames also offer other games they have created free HERE. Some of them look like they are worth investigating. :)

Stay safe everyone.

This is the third game in the last month or so that I can't download because your email came too late in the day and I didn't see it until the NEXT day. Then, of course, it's too late. I don't understand why an email takes soooo long to reach me. i don't have that problem with anyone else.

Was looking forward to this one, but after install, when trying to run game.exe, it says "missing msvcp100.dll" and won't run but of course, that file is right where it should be in Windows. Just uninstalled the game. Usually, the games from here, even the old ones, work ok. Running Win 10.

Same as other 2, click to play and told thanks for playing on website.

Don't like turning antivirus off, but seeing as it's a new computer with nothing on it, I turned antivirus off and reinstalled, went right back to thanks for playing.

So unless they think I'm getting rid of antivirus, just to play a game, it's a fail!

"Lost Civilization is an adventure puzzle platformer."

Um, looks to me more like an "adventure puzzle with HOG elements:" I don't see any platformer gameplay elements … or am I missing something?

Downloaded and installed fine on Win10HomeX64. Upon opening, game was off screen on the right but with changes to the DPI setting (see post #3) it is working fine.

A fun, relaxed play here. The HOG scenes are clear and it is fairly simple to see and find the items. There is no map and, unlike many other such games where you are often returning to places, here it seems you are constantly moving forward so a map may be unnecessary. So far anyway.

The addition of other challenges is nice. In one you have to put refuse in the proper recycle bin. Kudos to any game that incorporates recycling into the game-play! In another, you have to paint a picture. Simple but still fun!

This is categorized as a HOG on the BF website and it is but with just a bit more. A nice mix and I look forward to getting back to it later.

Thank you to all involved for this giveaway!

Why are you censoring comments? Don't like constructive criticism? You're not serious!

Karol,

No one is censoring comments. Constructive criticism is one of the things I'd like to see here. The only comments I censor here are those that are bullying to other community members and foul language.

I explained at the head of the review above that I was extremely busy today. So haven't been able to moderate all day. Which may explain why comments may not have appeared online for a while.

It turned out I had to change the DPI settings to get a correct view on my monitor. This is how that is solved: Right-click the application, select Properties, select the Compatibility tab, and then select the Disable display scaling on high DPI settings check box.

tiscrea © - The Netherlands,

Thank you! I am running Win10HomeX64 and while your note helped me get there, my process was just a bit different so I thought I'd tag on to your post for those running the same.

Once in Compatibility tab I had to click on the "Change high DPI settings" button towards the bottom, then in the pop-up window check "Override high DPI scaling behavior" at the bottom and "OK".

I hope that helps some. Again, thank you!

Lawrence Carter, The only antivirus I have is Windows Defender, and in Win. 11, you can't turn it off.
I would think if it were that, it wouldn't download at all?

Don't know if this will help, but I always go to the game's folder, right click the game's .exe file -- usually game.exe -- and click Troubleshoot compatibility. A window will open showing progress as Windows checks the app or game, & it then gives you the opportunity to test those settings. If it works you can save those settings, & if not, it'll give you a list of problems, like doesn't display correctly, so you can try again. I've Very rarely had a GOTD game that wouldn't work this way.
