Customer Reviews
The Mystery of a Lost Planet is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a game I could get into This is my kind of game. Great story and great game play. HOs are a little tedious but they are still fun. You actually have a realistic goal to complete and on the way you see some interesting things. This is the kind of game I wait for but, unfortunately, they are few and far between. This is more for the adult player although some of the reviewers think differently. I think once you get into this game you will enjoy it. Oh yeah, the music adds just the right amount of creepiness to the game. I recommend this game for all gamers looking for a change. Have fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUBVERTING THE GENRE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF GAMERKIND! Think you know what makes a good HOPA? Well, think again. Playing this, it soon becomes apparent that we've been doing it wrong all these years. The developers of The Mystery of a Lost Planet are here to show us a new way. A better way. Prepare to have your preconceptions shattered, because this game tears up the rule book and makes its own rules. It's old fashioned in many ways - some won't appreciate the 4:3 aspect ratio and the lack of character animation and audible speech. But despite these "shortcomings", this game manages to bring an entirely new slant to the (some might say) stale and stagnant HOPA genre. Modern, standard HOPA conventions are thrown out the window - are you playing on easy mode and expecting sparkles out the wazoo? Well, you'd be wrong - while doorways or passages to other places light up when you mouse over them, other areas or items of interest only have a very subtle glint to guide you. And I suppose you think you'll find a Hidden Object scene within the next screen? Wrong again - the next screen IS the Hidden Object scene. And then later, something else might happen there. Or maybe not... Ah, here's a Hidden Object scene. I can tell because there's a domino and a hat and many other incongruous items... but where's the list? What's going on? It's all a lot less predictable than the games we're used to. The Hidden Object scenes themselves offer a challenge by not always having a changing cursor for interactive components. Here, the developers are taking you back to what a Hidden Object game should be about - observation. The clues to the interactivity are there but you need to really look for the solution. Another unintentional layer of difficulty is added by a few mis-spellings and mis-translations but strangely, these always add to the fun for me. Maybe you're a pro and playing on the hardest difficulty mode? Good luck - you're going to need it. There are no instructions for the mini-games and while in easy mode the PDA gives you a decent amount of information, including alerting you to the presence of various things that you might not otherwise notice, hardest mode gives you very little info. This presents an extra challenge because sometimes the cursor changes to let you know there's a hot-spot but sometimes it doesn't. What? Surely this is breaking one of the most fundamental rules of HOPAs? Maybe, but get used to it because in these cases, it's clear the developers want you to look, really look at everything, rather than simply focusing on the cursor and waiting for it to change. And they want you to use something else too - your brain. I'm not the sharpest tool in the box but I eventually managed to get to the end of the game without a hint. There is a reward for playing in this higher difficulty mode in the form of a little extra back-story, which once again, unconventionally doesn't happen at the end of the game but somewhere along the way. It's totally non-essential to the main game but it's a nice little touch and adds an incentive to replay. The mini-games/puzzles were different and a little odd. No instructions in hardest mode means some head-scratching is inevitable but none are impossible, even without guidance. If you're unsure, just fiddle about with the components a bit - again if you use logic and experimentation, the solution should reveal itself. I was determined not to skip a puzzle and I almost succeeded but had to give up on the second part of what turned out to be the last puzzle. An original and innovative electronic soundtrack accompanies us on our journey. I enjoyed all the music and there were some unusual sound samples used at times. The artwork is truly stunning - the alien landscapes are imaginative and beautifully realised. Ship interiors are authentically monochromatic and industrial. The game characters look like real people. Also authentic is the need to find useful, realistic items. We don't need an earring, an old love letter and something that I'm not entirely sure what it is but I'll take it anyway before venturing onto a strange planet that we just crashed into. I'd rather have the more sensible ration pack and medical kit. Apart from the story-line, everything is based on realism and logic. Games, like movies, are capable of spanning a massive spectrum, from the latest blockbuster extravaganza from ERS or Elephant to low-budget, independent efforts and if you compare the newest MCF game to the newest installment of a successful Hollywood franchise, then consider this game to be something like a Dogme 95 film in the sense that it's invented a whole new and at the same time old back-to-basics way of doing a very familiar thing. It's raw, it's unconventional but most of all it takes players who prefer the more traditional game mechanics provided by the bigger studios out of their comfort zone. They don't "get it" and therefore probably don't like it. That's OK. No game can satisfy everyone's tastes. Players who cut their teeth on adventure games of yesteryear will perhaps appreciate it more, as (in the hardest mode) it offers a reasonable amount of challenge. The one thing all players will agree on is that this game is very different from the norm - whether that's a good or bad thing is up to you...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Late to the game I know I'm late in discovering this game, but I'm so glad I did. It reminds me of the first adventure games I played where I just wanted to see what was around the corner. I wish we had more Scyfi themed games! I read the positive reviews first, and in this case they were right on. I even love the music! As far as I'm concerned, this is a great game and thank you developers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It!! This game reminds me of older adventure games, though there were more hints available (I played on easy mode). You did have to think and yes, the hidden objects could be hard to find, but I did not mind that, I just took my time and kept looking. The puzzles were not too difficult or too easy. I loved both the graphics and the music. One other thing I liked - I could not guess what the story line was or how it would end. With so many games having the same story line, I sometimes know how it will end well in advance and then I get bored - no boredom with this one. I would recommend it for anyone who likes a good adventure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great game! The game is really beautiful, the topic is not clogged.Wonderful mysterious music, interesting story, great graphics and there is no magic! But the game is very short and easy. This is a good beginning, keep it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rare Scifi Game I bought this right away without playing the demo because it is scifi. There are far too few games on Big Fish that are based on a science fiction theme and I was willing to play it no matter what it turned out to be like. But it was really fun! The puzzles were quite hard and took a lot of thinking. I wish it had been longer, but then we always feel like that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It!! Not sure what all the negative reviews are about either, as I love this game. It was different, and reminded me of the old adventure games that I played back in the day. Music is important to me to set the atmosphere and this music was great and eerily added much to the game. The tablet thingy on the bottom left of the screen gives you clear instructions as to your next steps. The graphics are very well done. Only thing I can say bad about this, is it didn't support wide screen, so I had to do some property setting changes. I will be buying this game for sure, as it's about time some different stories are out there instead of the same old mystery castle, missing relatives, fairy tale stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this game! The game captures and keeps in suspense.It makes you think, and that's another reason I love it. Music creates a disturbing atmosphere.Logical and thought-out game with beautiful graphics - dim, then dark, then bright... everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intelligent story line, great graphics! This is a really good game! The story is realistic and you pick up items that make sense. Your portable computer is helpful and intelligent. You can really feel part of the team. The HOP's are very detailed and challenging. Quite different from most games. Well done!
