If you are having issues getting the game to install, even when it says its been activated; this is due to the Themida wrapper, which some anti malware suites will block as it can also be used to hide malware, read the read me for instructions on what to do.
Bare bones review (mainly a very brief conclusion from a limited time playing the game a few days ago). I have included links to various review sources, you tube videos as well as info on other free games available at this time See last paragraph after screen captures)and a mix of my own screen captures and ones I found via Google.
We are out for most of the day, so don't have time to play the game and moderation will not be available from me until late afternoon at the earliest..

Conclusion:
The game is nicely detailed with excellent graphics; especially considering it's now almost a decade old. The hidden objects are relatively easy to find. Though there is a lot of backtracking involved and some aspects of the story may be missed if you’re not thorough.

The latest free game over on Epic Games is the excellent survival game ‘Surviving Mars’, a city building strategy game with resource management. The game also includes two of the dlcs and the total saving by getting the game this week is over £36. There are over 5.6K reviews of this game on Steam that are mostly positive.

More games have been added to the Indie Gala freebie section HERE as well i.e. Tales of Blood and Sand (a gladiatorial game made with RPG maker), Silent Gentlemen (an RPG game set in a fictional guard outpost in the Dark Age) and Unforgiving Trials: The Space Crusade (another RPG maker game). You'll find more in the Dev's Showcase section HERE, e.g. another in the Unforgiving Trials series, called 'The Darkest Crusade', as well as others not suitable for children such as Hentai mosaic games; However, some of those are either early alpha's or demos only.

I won't be downloading as too many screen shots are just too dark, making it too difficult to make out items.

Great game ! Very good graphics, and the encouragement to look closely at them all. I love the hard searches. Makes the games last a long time. I'm running Win 10 on an old laptop, and everything works well. Thanks for this one ! I LOVE it.

Installed fine on Windows 10 64 bit Home Edition, however the compatibility program informed me upon exiting that some settings had been applied automatically. I do know this game runs at low resolution, the only two settings available are 1024x768 and 800x600. It won't run in windowed mode on my machine for some reason, even though I am set at a higher level (1920x1080) so my guess is that it can't deal with those higher resolutions. Game play is limited in some ways. I kept having to assemble parts of things from bits in the background, some of which are very hard to see or even know what you are looking for, and often I have incomplete assemblies which the help menu tells me I need to go elsewhere before I can come back and finish finding. There is a map to tell you where you are and what is left to do, but you can't use it to travel to those sites that have things you need to do. It's a bit frustrating, especially if you are not going to finish it all at once and will probably forget exactly where everyplace is. I'll keep it for awhile to finish, but I'm glad I didn't pay for it.

Especially beautiful game considering its age. Thanks for the review and numerous pictures Mr. Whiterabbit. ^^

FROGs - Fragmented Object Games - are not my thing, unless the pieces are fairly placed, sized and not oriented in an odd way compared to where they fit into the completed item. Maybe I'll download later and at least see for myself, if I have time. Cheers and thanks for the today's game.

Sorry ... I forgot .
A few words about the game .
I've played the game for about 20 min. .
Great graphics , sound and music .
Even though finding the broken pieces of the objects is a little bit irritating ,
it's not too hard to find them , so ... no harm dun .

Wouldn't run under Win 7 Pro - works OK under Service Pack 2 compatibility mode.

For some unknown reason I couldn't run it under Win7 Pro - had to run in Service Pack 2 compatibility mode.

This is failing to launch (install) for me. Is this due to my anti-virus? I have Avira.

Reply   |   Comment by Nancy  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Yes. I had to turn off "Real-Time Protection" to install the game on my desktop which has Avira. No probs on my laptop which doesn't have Avira.

This is a kind of HOG where you should find a lot of parts of the item to obtain it. I don't like this.

Reply   |   Comment by Vladimir  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

I feel the same way. I wouldn't have bothered installing this if I'd known.

What a coincidence, I literally just finished playing the first in this series about half an hour ago (replayed it, first played it when it was given away here in 2014). Looking forward to another chapter of it. :)

Reply   |   Comment by jb  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

jb, Okay, now I am confused. Are you saying we got the first part of this series in 2014? Because Whiterabbit-uk says

"the two games preceding it were 'The Treasures of Mystery Island' released in 2008 and 'The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Gates of Fate' released in 2010. The latter was a game giveaway from May 4th 2014."

My records also indicate that it was the first. So some clarification certainly desired. Did we get #1 or #2 in 2014?

Anyone have a definitive answer to this query?

Mark,

"The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Gates of Fate was available as a giveaway on May 4, 2014!"

Mark, I remember playing these graphics and mini games, so it could be an older giveaway.

Find it a great idea that you record all those games and share your experience here.

Same for Whiterabbit-uk, of course.

Many thanks.

Mark,

Hi Mark, as I mentioned in my comment, where I said ''the two games preceding it were 'The Treasures of Mystery Island' released in 2008 and 'The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Gates of Fate' released in 2010. The latter was a game giveaway from May 4th 2014.'' latter indicating the last of the two games mentioned; (former would have been the first). I also linked to the giveaway page.


i.e. the second in the series Treasures of Mystery Island: The Gates of Fate given away May 2014

Reply   |   Comment by Whiterabbit-uk  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Whiterabbit-uk,

To confirm, it did turn out it was the second in the series that I played, but at the time I wrote my first comment I thought it was the first one. Sorry for the confusion.

Reply   |   Comment by jb  –  28 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

jb, Thanks to all who replied.

The good news is that my question was answered. The bad news is that Whiterabbit now erroneously thinks I don't know the difference between "former" and "Latter". ;-)

Oh well, I had thought that I had phrased my question clearly enough to make it understood that his quote said differently than your statement. Now this is even more troubling and I have to ask myself was my phrasing so awkward? :-/

But thanks for clearing up the question.

I've got to go now and learn how to write in my mother tongue. Shoot! I had thought I had mastered this. :-)
