Magic 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!
In 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.
Besides 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!
