Mysteries Of Magic IslandMysteries Of Magic Island - Making The Way Back

Any achievement takes something. Sometimes it is a lot, sometimes it is much more. Few things come to us with no effort. The same works for the main character in Mysteries Of Magic Island.

 

This newly released hidden object-adventure game sets you on a quest to find the way back from a magic island.

 

 

You have to play the whole game just in order to pass the test and be accepted into the school.

 

Mysteries Of Magic Island

Usually you get at least a little bit of the characters' story, and it sets the direction for the further events in the game. In this game you don't get a lot of that.

 

You only learn that you play as an applicant to a magic school. But if you thought that studying is the main challenge (according to Harry Potter), you were wrong. Sometimes you have to play the whole game just in order to pass the test and be accepted into the school.

 

So the first person you meet is a mage that gives you some initial instructions which serve as a short tutorial telling you about the hints (cristal ball), the inventory bag, the notebook, and the map.

 

Mysteries Of Magic Island

The test is to get back from a magic island where you are sent from the very beginning of the game. You are warned that not many actually made it back.

 

So you find yourself in an exotic place with a list of items to start with. The searching goes as usuall. The slight difference may be that you get the items in the scrolls. Some of the scrolls give you another item once the previous one was found.

 

If you are familiar with this way of getting the items then you should know that some of the items that you click and that are not needed at this moment, may become needed later. So this is where the attention paid to the items on the screen is not wasted.

The hints are available for you when you need some help with finding the items. The hints work on a rechargable level. The recharge time differs in the two modes you can play - Normal and Advanced.

 

Another difference is that the active areas on the scenes can be shown to you by sparkles as well  while the map is more helpful in the easier mode.

 

There is lots of interaction and inventory collecting. This part takes quite a ton of time as you go back and forth trying to find out where to get some invontory or where to use items that you had collected.

 

The game gets you all over involved if you want to complete it. Things just don't go that easy here.
