Adventure Chronicles: The Search for Lost Treasures
Super Great Game!
Bought this a while back and just played again.
It is a super hidden object game and you can learn some things about the past, too.
You travel to different locations to find the "great treasures".
The scenes are sometimes a challenge as all objects are well hidden. There are also helps as in you may need to dig, brush, burn or break open things to find the object you need.
You also need to find the "geocache" object that will be displayed in the museum. To find out what object this is, you click the down arrow at the upper right side of the screen and a riddle and/or description to solve will give you a clue as to what to find.
After all the scenes are finished in one area, you can go back and there is a bonus round of objects to find.
This is a great game for children & adults.

I Loved this
I bought this back in 2008 and I loved it, it wasn't long after I bought it that it was in the top 10 or something like that.
It has a great story line to it and the graphics, colours, are awsome. I loved that it was in the time of Pharou ( sorry spelling ) anyway back than.
This game was one of the ones that I learned and got hooked on Hidden Object games. Once I was able to buy it and finish it I was so hooked and the rest is history, so play it even now you who are experinced you will enjoy this.

Search for Lost Treasure
Somewhat lengthy, depending on your expertise in finding well hidden items. Some adventure but majority is HOG. Interactive map. Generally, your locations are static. Your journal will give you a list of clues, usually one clue per location. HOS are somewhat challenging; items are very well blended in. You have an item finder, hammer, brush and lighter throughout the game to help you find hidden items. Whether playing casual or difficult mode, the protagonist talks a lot and is constantly giving you clues of what to do, which can get annoying, especially if you don't want the help.
Each location tells you what % of items and whether a geocache (one in each location) have been found. You are not told what the geocache is. Tells you ?Location Complete? even if the geocache hasn?t been found yet. Once you return to the museum, you will be given the chance to revisit locations to find the geocache and a new list of items to earn a gold star. Graphics are good, though a bit bland in some locations. Items are detailed but very well blended into background. Music is okay. No puzzles.

Not Too Fun HOG
Five locales with multiple locations within each. Straight HOG. Seemed a bit grainy to me on some of them. Probably intentionally to make finding objects harder. Have to find one item (geocache) each HOS, but you essentially have to click everything as it is not described in any fashion. Some objects hidden within other objects, requiring you to break items or dust off walls. Have just played it the second time within a few months and stopped halfway through. This just ended up to be mind-numbingly boring and tedious. Overall rating is a 2.75 at best.

Hidden Object, not Invisible Object
This game was interesting but has a weird aspect in that some of the objects aren't hidden, they are invisible and you must use the Item Finder to get them. This was an interesting change from the hint used in most others of this genre.
The graphics could use some sharpening and the cursor for my Mac version did some weird hopping around the screen. The developers might want to work on those two aspects of the game to make it better. It could also be longer as I completed it in around two hours.

Did not like this game at all.
I really didn't like this game, I found it very boring and the graphics were quite blurry I had to get up close to find a lot of the objects in the HOS's. All in all probably the worst game I have ever bought. Total waste of money.

i found this game to be extremely hard
i had to cheat a lot in this game. once i figured it out it was still hard. i like easier games where i don't have to try as hard. i like to be able to sit down and some thinking is not bad, but this was hard for me. i have other things on my mind and that may be some of it. hints charged fast. if you want a time-consuming game (that is what it was to me) this would be a good choice. i kept having the feeling it was a sequel to the escape the museum games but not sure of that.

Not a good Adventure-just lost.
I did not like this,some objects were impossible to find. Some clues did not help at all. Color was dark and objects were very small. Not a good HOG at all. Sorry I don't recommend this game at any price. I think alot of people tried this and just gave up that is why there is only 6 reviews.

Boring & Tedious
This game came up as a $2.99 special. Remember the old adage about getting what you paid for!!
No hint button, just an annoying item finder.
Teeny tiny does not begin to describe the hidden object items.
Played game before noon & it put me to sleep!!

I wanted to like this game. Finally I decided I was just annoyed by it. Why? because there did not seem to be any way to get a hint if there was no use for the finder indicator. Too many things seemed too random as to whether to use a tool or just click and then there were things that were hidden but one was not told that they were hidden. I just got burned out on it with irritated annoyance. See if you like it. But I ain't buying.
