Amazing Adventures: The Lost Tomb
This is a fairly challenging hidden object game, especially given the size of the objects to be found & the overall screen resolution of the scenes . . . Nevertheless, it's worth the effort, & if you find all 21 scarabs, you unlock the Secret Game Mode, which allows you unlimited game play in each location . . .
The game is pretty straight-forward: you play a hidden object location, & then solve a puzzle, which is usually a memory match round, or a jigsaw puzzle . . . You can play this all timed, or untimed (relaxed) . . .
The end puzzle is moderately difficult, but if you play around with it with some patience, it's solvable . . .

I simply love these Adventure games! HOGs with a bit of a twist
I love the Pop Cap games, and this one is no exception. Like others have mentioned, the Hidden Object Scenes are a bit difficult at times, but overall, the graphics are awesome.
You will definitely get your money's worth here. The storyline is good, and it is a fairly long game. I have played all of these "Amazing Adventure" games from start to finish in one sitting each, because they are, for me, difficult to stop playing once I get started.
I don't want to give too much information, so that it ruins the game for you, but you won't be disappointed. There are some ways to unlock unlimited game play, which I always enjoy. Check it out for yourself. This is a fun game to play, and chances are, you will find yourself buying every one.
Have fun...It's a wholesome game, with good graphics, a plot and good audio, as well. You won't be disappointed with this one....at least I wasn't. I did need to wear my glasses with this one, LOL...but that is okay.
Oh!...If you like the Vacation Quest games, you'll love this one. Enjoy! I do recommend this game.

I was introduced to this game via a friend and I just had to get my own copy of it. Nothing much I can say about this one since it's just a standard HO game but I did enjoy it.

Another Amazing Amazing Adventure
They have changed things around a bit on this Amazing Adventure where the museum has asked us to investigate a piece of an ancient map that was unearthed identifying the location of Egypt's Lost Tomb. They have reduced the number of missions to 20 and you simply only have to find 21 hidden scarabs total in order to unlock only one secret game mode. This edition has us searching airports, gold masks, hotel rooms and cave paintings and they have jam packed each scene with a ton of items. After each seek and find you need to complete a mini game or puzzle such as spot the differences or jigsaw puzzles, to reveal the next location. This is mainly a hidden object game with a lot of fun puzzles, enjoy!

Great Game For HO Lovers!
Although this game is "old school", it is still fun to play. I had this game installed on my old PC from a few years ago and will probably purchase it again from BF (Just spent too much $$ so it will have to wait).
Every once in a while I like a break from the HOPA games so prevalent today and just go for the old fashioned hidden objects scenes and uncomplicated storyline. And any game with Ancient Egypt as its theme is always interesting. The difficulty in this offering ranges from easy to moderate; just right to spend some time relaxing and playing my favorite type of game.
Truly a stress buster for me. Try it, it's good old-fashioned fun!

Really fun game, bright and colorful!
This is a colorful fun game to play. It is not the dark and gloomy kind where you really have to squint and glare to see anything. (I hate those, and I do not buy them!) It is also not complicated! It has puzzles and spot the difference mini games, and they are fun too! The way the hints work remind me of Vacation Quest games, they are available if and when you need them and I like that! The graphics are good, and the scenes are pretty but also some of them are cluttered. Some objects are hard to see, they blend into the background colors. But I think you will enjoy this game, I know I did!

Lets take a trip to Egypt.and we can walk like an Egyption.
I think this was the first Amazing Adventure i bought that Pop Cap did, all of the game are good and set in diffrent Countrys as it says your in an Egyptshion Tomb you have to find H.O and some mini games the graphics on this one are a bit poor but it is an old game when i bought it had great graphics but pc graphics know are far better.

good game, but.........
I enjoy all the Amazing Adventure games. Its not too dark, as many are (so items are not too hard to find. My only problem was the upside down American flag in one of the 'Find the difference' games.
