Product Description
The Lost City
The Lost City
The Lost City
The Lost City

Grandma was right. Nobody really believed her, not even you. For years she regaled you with magical bedtime stories of her adventures as an archeologist. You cuddled closer and listened with wide eyes as she told of her most enchanting discovery--The Lost City.

A mysterious power is calling from the ruins, and Grandma knows why, but is now too old to handle the mission. Inspired by classic choose-your-own-adventure games, you must return to the sleeping ruins and bring with you the artifact that is the heart of the civilization, once wrongfully removed from the sacred land.

Returning the Sacred Heart

Legend has it, those who once lived amongst the now crumbling ruins could somehow control the seasons. You must return the missing piece and discover the magical powers that still exist among the silent and majestic land.

Shrouded by a lush forest and veiled by cascading waterfalls, The Lost City has never surrendered its location to a map. You must navigate your way through the forest, picking up clues as you go. Collect artifacts and solve puzzles to open stone doors, or safely slip beneath a waterfall, to discover another step on your journey through an ancient civilization.

Discovering the Secrets of a Civilization

As you stumble across symbols, clues, and artifacts, you'll store them safely in your knapsack and take notes in your journal. You'll map each new destination, so when you find the answer to a puzzle from a previous encounter, you can easily make your way back to it and reveal its secret.

Rediscovering The Lost City, last touched by your own grandmother, is a beautiful adventure. With stunning graphics and an original soundtrack that transports you through time, it's easy to get lost in challenging yet soothing gameplay.

Game play:
The game starts by bringing back memories of your grandmother and her stories about being an archeologist. Her stories based around the discovery of a lost city and its magical powers that the people who lived there had. She asks you to take her journal and a heart shaped stone that she wants you to return to the city. Her map will guide you on the adventure of your life.

As you move around the entrance you find items lying around that you can collect and find symbols that you make note of in your book. The graphics are spectacular. You place the heart stone into the chest of the statue and the season changes to spring. You randomly find objects in the different locations you go through. Some you can collect but some you cannot as you have to use one item to free another to add to your collection.

Main screen:
* Start
* Other games - takes you to an add page to show you another game but there is no link to the Web to purchase it. This is a first for a game and I like it.
* Options - reset game, select language and credits

What I like:
The graphics are spectacular on this game. This app is beautifully designed and thought out. I was having so much fun trying to solve the game that I was forgetting to write a review.

The puzzle is difficult but fun. There are hint pages but to be honest I haven't used them as they are labeled as spoilers for a certain area and I would rather solve the puzzle on my own.

There is a page to show you another game on the main screen but there is no link to the web. I like this as your children can go look but not purchase another game with just a few touches of the screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars now works on the New large screen fire HD December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to this app. But on my New Kindle Fire HD, it got through screen two on the initial narrative screens and died every time. I had reinstalled to no avail. Others reported the same issue. The authors have fixed most of the issues, the only problem is that when you ask for hints, the app hard waits and times out. If you tell it to wait, it always succeeds. Not a bad app, but not five stars. there is the one semi bug, and you have to save five stars for World of Goo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and improved over the first one! September 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
I got the first game from Fire Maple (The Mystery at Grizzly Manor or something like that) as the free app of the day a good long while ago. I loved it, it's a really entertaining game, but for someone who had zero experience with a hidden object game, it was extremely difficult to navigate and I had to get a lot of help from the internet to complete it.

This game was MUCH easier to navigate. There's a map, so when you're thinking to yourself, "I totally know where that goes, but I cannot for my life remember how to get there...." you can get a trigger. Yes, you still have to GET THERE on your own (wouldn't that just defeat the purpose?), but you can get a reminder as to where it is.

Additionally, the journal is a genius addition. After I completed this game (Lost City) I went back and played the first one, and found that the lack of journal was a real challenge, which made me appreciate the one in Lost City that much more. You get codes and carry them around with you, which when they're five, six, ten screens apart is really, really great.

The graphics are stunning. As a result of stunning graphics and also extended screen-on time, this game will chomp your battery right up. NO fault of the game, just a matter of fact.

I definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good adventure game, clumsy help screens May 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you've played Secret of Grisly Manor and enjoyed it, then this is even better. Great graphics for this type of game.

Gameplay involves hunting around an island, which is shown as separate screens that interconnect with each other through doorways, steps, paths etc. Along the way you find objects that help you progress, but it is not always very obvious where to use them, so you have to think about it and use some trial and error if you get stuck. Through collecting heart-shaped stones you change the scenes from spring to winter to summer to autumn, and these seasons affect what you can do (eg, do you need the water in a particular area to be frozen or not?)

I've played it through once and I did have to rely on the help screens. Which are really bad. But it did get me through the game, so I suppose they can't be completely useless. They just could be so much more user-friendly. The map is OK, and certainly helps, but again, this could be easier.

Oh, and if you can't actually find the help screens, they're in the journal in your sack. It took me a while to figure that out too!

An enjoyable game, and I look forward to playing this through many more times.

Is the game closing on the 2nd screen for people using the Fire HD 7, or...
Hey there!

This is the developer. Just bought the 8.9inch for testing and can confirm that it crashes on the second screen. At least it is consistent! Digging into the issue now. The game works fine on the original Fire and the 7inch Fire. Not sure why the 8.9inch is angry...

Game of Lost City?
Download and gameplay worked fine on my 7'' Fire HD. I was lost at first too, but an easy game once you get the hang of navigating. Also, there are plenty of hints. When you click on the bag in the lower left hand corner of the game, click on the journal in your inventory. When it opens,... Read More

Is there a solution to the Lost City problem?
Download was working when I tried it around noon EST. It was slow to start, but I gave it a few minutes. Try it again, it may be because Amazon's site is so busy.
