Lost Realms: The Curse of Babylon
Lost Realms: The Curse of Babylon is a new release from Big Fish Games in a Hidden Object genre. You are to stop the Curse of Babylon by traveling to the legendary city of Istanbul where Alexia needs you help. An ancient family curse has affected her friend, Ogan: a mysterious symbol has appeared on his hand, and it must be prevented from spreading! Journey through Turkish and Persian gorgeous scenes to find a cure for the Curse of Babylon!
What is awaiting you further you'd better find out yourself!
The story begins in Hagia Sofia. At the beginning of the first chapter you'll have to learn the tutorial. It cannot be skipped, so just follow its steps. First of all you need to find three keys to pass to other locations. It's not difficult, so you get into a dark library. On having solved a puzzle, the light is turned on and you can start seeking.
There are 2 game modes in Lost Realms: The Babylon Curse. You can choose to play in either Relaxed or Timed Mode. Sure enough, in Relaxed Mode you can play without the timer. In Timed Mode, you have 15 minutes for each Hidden Object scene. Each mini-game and Bazaar game is also timed in this mode.
A qiuestion mark indicates an interactive zone. Use your Inventory Items there. Random clicking is penalized with multiple symbols appearing on the screen. Just wait a few seconds and it is over.
If you see a foreign word in your search list which is written in yellow, hover your cursor over it and its meaning will be displayed. Glowing zones can lead you to a challenge, click on the glowing area to investigate it further.
You have 6 hints on default. After all of them are used you can play one of the three Bazaar games to earn an extra hint. Minigames at different times during the game are quite easy, you have to find similar pairs in memory style or match items like 3-in-a-row. And you can also skip them if you wish, though that will cost you a hint.
There are also 3 tools which can be used many times throughout the game: a magnifying glass, a pocket knife and a baseball bat. You will gain them as you progress through the game.
To resume, I should say that crisp and beautiful graphics, great storyline and the game play make this good solid HOG totally fun. If you like interacting in games, this is exactly for you!
