Escape from Lost Island - But First Get There
Escape from Lost Island is one of the latest releases to the hidden object genre. The title of the game gives away pretty much of the plot. But don't think that you already know what to expect.
The searching process here is not typical and the mini-games are fun and quite challenging. Not to mention the beautiful graphics.
Escape from the island is not the first thing to do for you in game. At first you are to get to that island.
According to the title, you are to escape the island, but the game starts from the point when you are not even yet there.
The main character of the game, young and pretty woman, tells her story that finds its beginning on a cruise ship. Everything was perfect till the ship didn't start sinking.
To get off the ship will take a few levels. Most of the time you'll be busy with searching for the required items.
The searching process here is not typical. You don't get the list of all of the items to find, but rather you get it in parts. You are first to figure out the areas on the screen that change your cursor.
You click on that area and you get a circle of things to find. They are usually not a problem to find, but what makes it hard sometimes is that you can see an item in a normal position. While it can be in a different position on the screen, or only a part of an item can be seen.
Plus most of the times the one of the items in the circle can be found by finding all of the items in a different circle. The hints are available for you anytime you need them and any time they are recharged to be used.
There are mini-games to play after every stage of the game. Those are fun and not boring most of the times. There are also different tasks for you to do. For example, you need to extinguish the fire on the ship before you get off it. You are to do that by throwing sandbags with a special machine.
You can skip those, but what's interesting is why you would do that on a sinking ship you are trying to escape.
The game plays, looks, and sounds good. Whether you believe me or not, the trial version is always a good thing.
