Lost Fortunes - Talk to The Spirits!
Puzzle fans, here is a wonderful treat for you! In Lost Fortunes you'll have a chance to play all kinds of mind-bending puzzles and get to know the story of your character with the help of mysterious spirits.
Do you always know who you are and how you got where you are? And I'm not speaking of times when you are drunk...
You wake up in a strange worn-out circus without any reminiscences of who you are and where you came from at all. What would you do in such situation? Luckily, you meet an old fortune-teller who promises to help you restore your memory with the help of her crystal ball and special fortune-telling cards. But suddenly a spirit appears in the ball telling you that you need to restore her Tarot deck and free her spirit as well as seven other spirits trapped in the ball by the evil witch under the mask of the fortune-teller. later you'll know that the spirit is Liza, the Enchantress of Hope, and she will help you all along your way by sending you useful messages.
So you start playing. The game consists of seven stages each corresponding to one of the trapped spirits. In each stage you'll be given a selection of seven puzzles to solve. You can do them in any order, but to free the spirit you'll have to solve each and every of them with the perfect score. However, you don't need to do that to proceed to the next stage - this requires just uncovering all the parts of the Tarot card of the stage - usually solving three of four puzzles out of the seven. So you can take your own pace and decide which ones to undertake and whether to go further or stay and try to free the spirit.
The puzzles are extremely diverse. You'll have to solve riddles, eliminate extra cards, play a memory game and spot differences, find items joined by one theme and, match creatures with theiк favorite food and much more. Each puzzle has either a limited number of unsuccessful attempts or a deadline before you fail. To pass each level you need to reach the minimum percentage of correct answers (usually 70%). of course, you can earn some bonuses by solving everything quickly and efficiently.
Besides parts of the Tarot cards you'll also get some coins that can be used to unlock a Mystery Slot. This can be a mini-game, for example, a short hidden object which lets you win some hints for the main game play, or just some funny extra, like a sparkler of a selected color following your mouse for some time. That's a surprise, but always a nice one.
The graphics of Lost Fortunes are distinguished with their unique retro style that gives the whole game a great atmosphere and a recognizeable appearance. But you have to see it for yourself, so don't hesitate to find your very own Lost Fortunes!
