From the Manufacturer

    1936, Hong Kong: Fenton Paddock, a former British soldier and hapless smuggler, is asked to find a missing military expedition in Tibet.

    Help Fenton and his ex-girlfriend, Kim, on their harrowing journey through the teeming streets of Hong Kong, the wind-swept mountains of Tibet, and all across pre-WWII Europe. As more of the mystery unravels, you’ll find that your mission is far greater than you could have imagined: the entire world hangs in the balance!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Point-&-Click Adventure game in 2010! October 10, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Lost Horizon is loosely based on the novel of the same name by James Hilton, and infact has more in common with, and also appears inspired by, a typical Indiana Jones adventure. I just finished the game and I have a lot of positive things to say about it. The game nicely represents the classic point-&-click adventure genre. All the ingredients that the genre fans would look for are present: a solid story, good puzzles, good dialogues and voice-acting, great graphics and cinematics and some atmospheric background music. The rich, colorful backdrops for the various locations are particularly well-drawn and provide a great feeling of immersion. The cinematics are also of high quality compared with the usual standard for adventure games. Character animation can be a little off in places though.

Puzzles are mostly inventory based, often consisting of applying MacGyver-style logic to find solutions. The game consists of seven chapters of decent length that would require several hours to finish. However, despite the length, it may not take players longer than a few days of dedicated play to finish; the reason being that the puzzles are not all that difficult. Especially for experienced players, Lost Horizon may not provide enough of a challenge. A big reason is the fact that only a handful of scenes with few inventory items open up at a time, coupled with the fact that all hot-spot locations can be identified with the click of a button. On the plus side, players may hardly find themselves stuck on a puzzle for too long for frustration to develop. Another gripe I have is that there is very little character development. This is at least in part due to attempting to follow in the veins of Indiana Jones too closely, thus suffering from lack of originality and stereotypical characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Fun October 15, 2010
By Maidy
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
While this game certainly isn't in the same class as the Myst series by Cyan, I found it very enjoyable. I played this game with my 13yr old daughter. The puzzles weren't too difficult so she didn't get frustrated with it. But, the best part of the game was the humorous dialog of the main character. We laughed quite a few times during the game and would try certain things just to hear what the response would be. The graphics weren't visually stunning and the characters weren't fully developed, but it wasn't that kind of game. It was more of a casual fun entertaining kind of game. And, it wasn't too short either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure - and adventure game January 22, 2011
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This is excellent interactive fiction - exciting story, cinematic, eye-pleasing graphics, and with well-integrated MacGuyver puzzles. It can hold its own with classic adventures from Lucas, and for me was definitely more fun than say plodding through Nancy Drew's chores. If you are a reader and puzzle-solver and liked the Indiana Jones movies and games, you may find this to be one of the best games you have played in a long time.
I bought this as a digital download; that worked fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun! June 28, 2011
Humor, imagination, excellent graphics combine for a thoroughly enjoyble game experience. Not for the hard core gamer IMO but great fun nonetheless. Great puzzles require some thought. Hightly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars love the game February 12, 2014
By erin
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I love a game that will challenge me, I get angry when I have to go to a walkthrough, but at the same time love it. This game is great I'm loving the story line so far, I have not completed the game yet, but if you are tired of the boring HOG's start playing Adventure games you spend less money because it takes you longer to play them, and they wake you up and use your head. I just love adventure games. The game downloaded just fine, fast and flawless. I can't really say much more because I'm still somewhat close to just the middle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game will not complete downloading - 711 Write Error January 14, 2014
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Spent hours yesterday and more hours today trying to get this game to download on my home computer. Zilch. Never got a write error since the old floppy disk days. What's up with that? I have downloaded and played dozens of games both from Amazon and other sites with no trouble at all. I'm running on an updated Intel 2.4 gig machine with maxed everything and no other game I have played has given me ANY trouble. Still looking for the place to give Amazon feedback and get a refund. If I can't, I'll cancel the order through my credit card company. Not a happy camper here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rollicking Good Fun And Adventure! October 25, 2013
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This game, which had NO connection with James Hilton's famous novel, "Lost Horizon," takes the player from England to China to Tibet to Kathmandu, to Germany and to Northern India and even to "Tropical India" in pursuit of an amulet and the "Eye of the Tiger," which will take the protagonist and his attractive oriental female companion to the fabled "Shambala."

This game is ALL ABOUT THE QUEST, which is what I just love, and there are no hidden object games to bog you down!

The game is replete with many interesting and moderately difficult puzzles and even a tricky maze that our hero, Fenton, must traverse.

All of the voices were superb, as were the music and graphics.

I highly recommend this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old game, good playing time. October 1, 2013
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
If you like games that resemble Indiana Jones this is the one for you. It had enough playing time. Sometimes pretty challenging. Graphics are not the best, but I enjoyed just fine playing with my daughter and I am a guy.
