Another Classic HO Game
GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
Story: After pieces of an ancient tablet begin appearing around the globe, the museum calls you in to hunt them down and follow the clues to the greatest gem the world has ever known -- the famous "World Diamond".
Developer: PopCap Games
Release Date: Sep 2008
Extras: High Scores, Times and Collectibles, Unlimited HOs
Your mission in this sequel to The Lost Tomb is travel around the world to recover the World Diamond. The scenes are all over the place, and therefore give the game more variety than its predecessor. Other than that, slightly better graphics, and a couple of different puzzles, this game is identical to the first.
The formula is still strictly one static noninteractive HO scene followed by a puzzle: multiply by 25. You return to each location randomly and often. As before, they do have collectibles that unlock unlimited play, and they are timed and scored.
Personally, I don?t like these games, but I think that are quite good examples of pure HO games, so if that?s what you like, I?d recommend it.

No storyline, but good hidden object game
The graphics are fine and the objects are neither too hard nor too easy to find (for me anyway). However, "Amazing Adventure" may be a little misleading, as it makes me think of exciting storylines. There isn't any story, it is only hidden objects and mini games. Still, for those who don't like to bother with story lines, this would be great. I'm about halfway through the game, and while it does get a bit repetitive revisiting the same scenes over and over, I enjoy relaxing with this game and intend to keep it.

Good game with great graphics
A good hidden object game with scenes from around the world. The art work is very good and the objects are well-hidden but large enough to see. There are 25 levels to work through, which makes it a long game. If you find 50 gems, the unlimited seek and find part of the game opens up. If you miss some of the gems or forget to look for them, don't worry. The scenes are repeated several times and you will have another chance. You can tell if you've already found the gems in that scene by seeing if the gems at the top are filled in. You can play this unlimited part of the game after you finish the main game. Basically in the main game you're looking for 10 hidden objects in each scene. Even in the Relaxed Mode there is a speed bonus, so if you look for two or three objects, then click on each of them quickly, you get extra points. There are also point penalties for random clicking and using the Hint button. After you find the hidden objects in each scene there is a mini-game to play. There are about 5 different types of mini games such as spot the differences, word finds, reassemble pictures, etc., and you just alternate between these same types of mini games, with different scenes, for the whole game. So it's "find the 10 objects in one scene", "mini game", "find the 10 objects in a different scene", "mini game", etc. for the whole game. It gets kind of repetitious after a while, so the only way I could finish the game was to play it for short periods at a time.

Ordinarily I like the Amazing Adventures games, but this one just about bored me to tears. There are 25 locations, with each location having several levels. Each level consists of a hidden object scene (HOS) followed by a puzzle. The HOS were OK, because even though the locations repeated themselves a lot, there was always different set of hidden objects to find. Not true of the puzzles.
There were 6 types of puzzles; word search, a hybrid mahjong game, find the differences and 3 types of jigsaw puzzles. The three types of jigsaw puzzles were rotating tiles, swapping tiles, and regular jigsaw. Here the repetition became mind numbing. I got really tired of solving the same puzzle over and over again. I'm not talking about the same type of puzzle, I'm talking about the exact same puzzle; same picture, same puzzle pieces, same solution. With a one-on-one ratio between HOS and puzzles, you can imagine how much repetition is involved. I'm thinking that maybe the newer games cut down on the number of puzzles, because I don't remember this much boredom with them.
In this game you have to find 50 jewels to open the unlimited play at the end. This is my favorite part of these games, because I like going to all the locations and finding all the hidden objects. The other unlimited play involved find the differences for all 25 locations.
The little snippets of information about the locations is always interesting, but this game seemed to be pretty weak in this area.
I'm ambivalent about recommending this game. If you love hidden object games, then this game has tons of them. But if repetition bores you, I would avoid it.
