Magic EncyclopediaMagic Encyclopedia: First Story - The Magical Quest Begins


Alawar Games together with V-games offer you to open Magic Encyclopedia and plunge into the world of magic and mystery. This game is a perfect blend of addictive puzzle game play and immersive atmosphere of magical world.



The Academy of Magic is finished! Adventures begin!


Magic EncyclopediaIn Magic Encyclopedia: First Story you will find yourself acting as Catherine, the top student of the Academy of Magic, where young people learn to use their powers to control nature. Just after your exams you get a disturbing message brought to you by a paper bird. The teleportation symbols in the message lead you to the decision to use the Teleportation Articfact you got from your parents. Once you do it the adventure begins, as you find yourself in the center of Mayan civilization trying to solve the ancient mystery.


The game play is really addictive, as you don't just look for hidden items but assemble them and use them to find some other things. In each location you have a number of items divided into parts to search for. Once you have found all the parts of an item you can use it - if you find where. Read hints in the top part of screen - they are very useful in flfilling the quests. Some parts of items can only be discovered after you have used something else. So sometimes it really needs creativity and attention.


Magic EncyclopediaBesides the parts of items you also have to look for crystals - some of them activate the Repair Artifact that enables the assembled items, and some of them are needed to turn on amulets from the box, which are also really helpful.


One of the greatest features of the game is its unlinear character. Some levels offer you more than one location, and items from one of them should be used in another. There are also secret rooms you'll discover in some levels, and lots of exciting mini-games.


The mini-games are different types of puzzles, some genuinely mind-bending and some just entertaining, but none boring.


 

If you get stuck, you can use hints - the number is limited, but you can always earn additional ones by playing a hidden object mini-game.


On the whole the game is a great blend of fantastic environment, fascinating story and engaging game play. Time to open your Magic Encyclopedia!
