Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Dynasty
Several Fun Games in One Package!
Impressed with Amazing Adventures as first time playing. Several games rolled into one with HOS, Match 3, Find the Difference. Also an unlock feature to play unlimited games. There's much to do in this busy little package! Artwork is astonishing as is the music soothing. Objects small for tired, old eyes. However, this is a Collector's Item make no mistake. Much admiration and respect to the Game Developers. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Challenging hidden object game.
I have purchased all of the "Amazing Adventure" games as has my sister. They are the best games ever and I can't wait until the next one becomes available. They are challenging and keep you interested throughout the game plays, I've played them all several times and have yet to become bored with them. If you like hidden object games, you'll want to own them all too.

Majhong meets Pure Hidden
This game meets all the expectations of someone who loves HOS's combined with arcade-type games. It has something for everyone! I didn't want to leave this game, but my house isn't going to vaccuum itself nor are my dishes going to wash themselves (sigh)

Simple yet very entertaining and enjoyable
I have played all the games in the series thus far, and find them all to be excellent.
These games are, in many ways, quite simple hidden object/puzzle games, yet there is something about them which is extremely entertaining and enjoyable, though it is hard to say exactly why.
The hidden object scenes are good and not over cluttered and the objects are easy enough to find, though not too easy. They are sometimes described rather than named, for example "stands next to gutters", which I find entertaining as I have to try to work out what it is I am looking for, is it a water barrel? a drain grate? a down-pipe? Or something else? There is a penalty for too many incorrect clicks, but this is not draconian and encourages caution without discouraging the player from trying objects when they are uncertain.
Another thing I particularly like is that all the scenes can be played again once the adventure has been completed and clearly entirely of ALL the hidden objects. This is the only series or game I know which offers this, and adds a great deal to the overall fun of the game. A match three game can also be unlocked, which adds even more value to the game.
The puzzles are very simple and don't require much brain power, but are varied enough to be entertaining, especially if you are playing this game to wind down at the end of the day (as I do).
There are two things about this game which, in my opinion, can be improved. The first is to stop the annoying hint prompt from appearing if you take too long locating the first object in the hidden object screen you are playing. I find myself racing to find something, anything, so that the irritating pop-up does not appear! Secondly, I have played all the games from this series on three different computers, and on all of them they appear rather dark and dim. I have to tweak the graphic settings on my computer to see the scenes properly. This is irritating, as the settings required to see this game clearly are too pale and bright for normal computer use, so I am constantly changing the graphics settings every time I want to play. A gamma adjustment option within the game would be a great help in this regard, and I know it is possible as I have seen this offered in other games. To be honest if I didn't enjoy the game as much as I do, I probably would be put off by this and wouldn't bother playing at all but I suppose it says something for the enjoyability of the game that I DO put myself to this inconvenience in order to play it.
These problems aside, I always look forward with eager anticipation to the next game in the series, and when it comes, I have never yet been disappointed. This game is no exception and comes highly recommended, as do the other games in the series.

A Forgotten Dynasty
The museum has asked us to see if the rumors are true about a forgotten Dynasty after mahjong tiles dating before the first know Dynasty began showing up on the black market. As with all Amazing Adventures, there are 25 missions to complete and you get points for each item found, more points for finding items quickly. You need to find both halves of a yin yang in each scene for a total of 50 which will unlock unlimited seek and finds and bonus games. Some of the scenes you will be searching include the Grand Canal and The Great Wall Of China. After each seek and find mission you need to complete a mini game such as spot the differences, in order to progress to the next level. This is a great series of seek and find with fun and easy puzzles, enjoy!

Beautiful Graphics & Generous Rewards
Even though some of the scenes are a bit muted, I still enjoyed searching for the items each time around. There is a soothing loop of music which I also like. There seems to be no penalty for wrong clicks, and the bonus points add up fast. I like using the "skip" feature on some of the puzzles, at first, but got more comfortable trying them as the game continued. I will try another "Amazing Adventure" soon.

Fun and Beautiful
This is a great game for the times you just want HO scenes and puzzles. Beautiful graphics and interesting scenes raise it above most HO-heavy games, and the information on China given after each "mission" are interesting. I took a long time to play this one as I used each "mission" as a change of pace between darker adventure style games. I'm off to start the Egyptian one next!
