Great Adventures: Lost in Mountains - Sim-Time-Management Mixture
Great Adventures: Lost in Mountains is a new release that combines both simulation and time-management features.
The game is developed and published by Fenomen Games offering you an adventure full of puzzles and challenges.
Alternating between the two characters you play as is the key to solving the various situations and puzzles that the game throws at you.
You meet the couple that races along the treacherous mountain road during the snowstorm to the hotel to find the woman's father.
He is a famous scientist, and the last time she heard from him he asked for help.
But unfortunately they don't find him there, and now you are to help them figure out what happened.
The woman is smart, nimble and good at crawling through small spaces, and the man (presumably her husband) is good at fixing mechanical gadgets and moving heavy objects.
Using the mouse, you can make characters walk around the environment and interact with it, and pick up a wide variety of items.
Some items are added to an inventory and can be used elsewhere, while other items - like lanterns, firewood and butterflies - are collectibles that boost the characters' Food, Rest and Fun levels.
Certain items can also be combined to make even more useful ones.
Some parts of the game - in particular, the locked doors - have puzzles and mini-games associated with them, such as variations on Sudoku, various slider puzzles, and easy trivia challenges (like "What's the name of the mountain where the Greek gods live?" Answer: Olympus.)
The characters of the game are extremely likable as well as the overall graphics.
