Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins

Posted by TurtleGirl On October - 7 - 2009

Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins is a Find and seek game that was developed by Pop Cap and published by Ubisoft for the Nintendo DS. It’s not the first time I’ve come into contact with these types of games. Only just the other day was I playing Cate West on the Nintendo Wii which runs along similar lines. The objective of the game is you’re given a series of archaeological digs in different scenic backdrops in which you have to find a selection of items from the list you’re given.

 
All the items are hidden within these backdrops and you have to find them. It’s almost like a game of ‘Where’s Wally’, but in this instance you have to find the hidden objects. The game was split up into a series of mini games, in order for you to come way from the main game and concentrate on something different. Although the game is quite addictive as you search through the selection of scenes, I did find that it did become slightly repetitive at times. You’re given the chance to find the objects in a certain time but you will find that you have plenty of time to explore the scenes. Some of the mini games consisted of memory games where you’re given a selection of boxes to find pictures and match them up and various jigsaw puzzles. Gradually as you progress through the game you’re given the opportunity to gain points and make your way up the adventurer ranks.

There are seventeen locations to browse through and gather the items from the list. Most of the scenes depict a series of cluttered mess, in which you have to search around quite intensely. The game is a relaxing one and although does not have a gripping storyline, I can imagine people quite happily playing this on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Inevitably you will get stuck in some areas, but you do have a hint button in which you can use but this will cost you. If you try not to use the hint button to help you, you can then go on to gain bonus points at the end of each level.

Tapping in succession on the right objects can gain you many points. Although just randomly tapping on anything can cause a penalty. I did find the screen to be a little too sensitive. The mini games keep you occupied with matching object cards up that are faced down and the jigsaw puzzles are pretty straightforward. You’re given twenty minutes to find the ten objects on your list and that’s plenty of time to discover them. In tile swap you have to find 10 jade masks to unlock this mode and my favourite section was ‘Find the difference’ in which you have to find 17 jade masks, which proved to be more challenging. Each mini game offers you something a little more interesting to distract you from the feeling that you’re playing a simple find and seek game.

In unlimited seek and solve mode you have to find nine Glyphs in the forgotten Ruins mode to unlock this section. This is a pretty game that will have you searching time and time again for the much needed items from your list. This is a perfect introduction game to those who are new to the find and seek titles that seem to making a rapid appearance onto video game consoles and handhelds in recent months.
