Mystic Diary: Lost Brother - Finding Gustav
Mystic Diary: Lost Brother is one of the latest releases in the hidden object genre developed and published by Sun Ray Games.
In this game you are to help a magician find his brother, Gustav. The game features both hidden object levels and all kinds of puzzles for you to solve.
Finding yourself in the victorian era you desparately search for the clues to take you to your brother.
Starting from the search of his brother's house he ends up in an unknown place. And what's more he gets there on a baloon. The journey helps him to reveal not only the details regarding his missing brother, but also soemthing about himself. All of which can be found then in his journal.
Most of the times you will play hidden object levels. The items to find are given either on the list or in the form of images.
One item goes to your inventory for later use in every scene. You look for the items according to the theme like gold that spreads over several scenes.
There are also find-the difference levels which offer quite a unique twist on the game. Instead of showing two scenes, it shows one with some sort of gadget that sees items disappearing or appearing. The goal is to find the differences between the picture and what the gadget sees or doesn't see.
The hints are unlimited for you but not for the puzzles and you will have ot wait for the meter to refill.
The audio appears in the puzzles and in between the levels only. The visual part is done quite well. The graphics does give a sence of the victorian times. With 12 rounds of the game and at least two hidden object scenes in each, the game has around 30 scenes of finding objects plus the occasional puzzle.
The game is good for the genre. It's not like you will be smashed by the new twists or something like that but it does offer some neat features.
