Suburban Timewaster

I play video games and review them.

Natalie Brooks: The Treasures of Lost Kingdom (Bigfishgames.com)

After receiving her rightful inheritance, Natalie Brooks visits her grandfather for his birthday.  Unfortunately, a bandit has kidnapped him and sends Natalie on a mission in order to save her grandfather’s life.  She must find the lost treasure of the Mayans.

This game not only explores ancient Mayan culture, it also connects real people to the Mayans, such as Al Capone and President Herbert Hoover.  Natalie can be a little self-absorbed in her quest, but Geoffrey usually calls her out on that.  One problem with the storyline was when Natalie talked about taking some of the Mayan treasure for herself.  Apparently, the writer forgot that Natalie received a large inheritance from her grandmother in the last game.

The game play is a little different from the last one.  You still go from various locations to collect items but sometimes you have to participate in a hidden object scene to find one.  You also have to solve mini-games in order to advance throughout the game.  Feel free to skip a mini-game or use a hint, which is unlimited in this game.

This game is intriguing and addictive.  I give it 6 out of 10; there were some continuity issues.
