Wanderlust: The City of Mists Collector's Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahoy there matey's! I played this in beta & absolutely loved it. Its an automatic buy for me. Its such a fun game, with new & really interesting ideas right from the start. I'm a bit jealous of anyone who is coming to it for the first time as 'lucky you'. I'm sure others will comment on gameplay, every little detail etc, but all I can say is- one of the best games I've played for years. Based on beta test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so funny I especially liked the dialogues, they are very witty and funny. The puzzles were new, sometimes easy, sometimes challenging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best HO game in a LONG time I think this just may be my most favorite HO game and I have played a ton of hidden object games. The releases since the beginning of the year have been sparse and those that have been released have not been that good. All HO developers should play this game and learn a thing or two. There isn't a single thing I didn't like about this game. The graphics are awesome and the music is theme appropriate and enjoyable. I enjoyed all of the characters, especially Rebecca and Collins. Their interaction is funny, witty and a nice change of pace. The story line is fresh and interesting. The hidden object scenes were not difficult but some of the objects you have to work for. There are some unique interaction tasks, such as the rack of weapons, that added to the success of this game. In the very beginning of the game, there is a pop-up list of items that you have to find. I thought this would have carried throughout the whole game but it didn't. A few more of those in future games would be fun. My favorite thing about this game? The tool belt. How many times have you had to find numerous knives and pliers during a HO game in order to progress.....too many. The developers were geniuses and gave you a tool belt that you had for the entire game. Bravo!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Fun Fun The comic relief, Collin makes this game! Visually pleasing game with unique challenges. It's like your the only adult looking after a bunch of overgrown children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Story, Mad Head Style This is such a great game, so unlike most of the HOPA games, but that's typical of Mad Head. Other reviewers have done an excellent job of providing storyline, minigame, and hidden object scene details. I enjoyed the humor in this game, including Collins (and his own inventory bar), as well as his antics. His predictability is part of his charm. As for his own inventory It was fresh and new, as are many of the details in this game. Like others, I appreciate having the tool box throughout the game (as well as a pliers) so there is little repetition of collecting tools. None of the tasks interrupt the pace of the game; the ending is a bit open-ended as well. My review is based upon completed play of the main game (but not the bonus chapter). I am casual player (relaxed pace), mainly focused on storyline and this is one of the best; the characters are so integral to the story, again typical of Mad Head games. No one game is for everyone but for everyone there is a game. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Ready to Laugh and Enjoy I have played many games from this site and this game has kept me laughing all the way thru it. The puzzles and hop's are medium lvl, but you get to enjoy the story and the character's attitudes within the story, which makes you forget about solving all the puzzles, which are fun also. I highly recommend this game for all players and hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Wanderful! Based on the entire game: The first game of this series was a bit of a disappointment, but this one was a pleasant surprise! Sort of an Indiana Jones meets Princess Bride Adventure. I can't think of another game where the dialog is so much fun! There is even a "witty joke/smarty pants" button for added enjoyment. As for the game itself, the storyline is engaging, the puzzles clever (yet doable) and the HOPS are well hidden. The morphs and collectibles (which look like dresses to me!) are fairly easy to find. This is a long game even though it only has 3 chapters. The bonus game is a hoot and well worth the price of a CE. I certainly hope the developers use the two main characters again in a team-up again! As always, try the demo. You won't regret purchasing this one. This one should be short listed for Game of the Year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST IGNORE COLLINS AND THE GAME GETS BETTER Wanderlust The City of Mists was, initially, a disappointment compared to the first game in the series. I found the comic relief of Collins to be rather annoying when I played the beta for the game and when I tried the demo there he was again with his irritating bag of tricks. However, in order to give the game a fair chance I continued on and to my surprise I found the game to be far better than my initial reaction. By the time I reached the island I was rather hooked on the game so I decided to go ahead and purchase it so I could continue playing. Perhaps I would have enjoyed the game a bit more if Collins had been portrayed as a more mature character rather than one who was rather full of himself but he does redeem himself a bit later in the game. We do have a tool kit that I felt was a bit of a gadget as it jiggled around on the side of my inventory bar when it should be used. I am guessing the developer didn’t think I could figure out that I needed a certain tool when a rope should be cut. Simply because some gamers happen to enjoy puzzles in HOPA games, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the HOS should be any less important. I happen to enjoy terrific HOS – yes, even the old school list type and I want the items to actually represent what must be found. I am so tired of this new trend of brown items melting into a background in order to make a HOS seemingly more difficult. Please developers return to great HOS and stop with all these storybook scenes. I love interactive, list scenes and can do without all of the storybook type where we must find an item according to a word on a page. Honestly, the HOS in The City of Mists were some of the worst scenes I’ve found in a game. I’ve become tired of dark and drab decaying buildings and generally lackluster HOS which is why I have only purchased maybe half of the HOPA games released since last October. Up until that time, I had purchased every CE HOPA since they began in 2009. The mini-games or puzzles were actually much better than the HOS, proving that this is where most developers are putting their energy when designing games. Even though I prefer quality HOS to an abundance of mini-games, I did enjoy the ones in The City of Mists. Of course there were a couple of puzzles that I skipped. I don’t recall previously ever seeing the puzzle where I needed to place navigation triangles onto a map to determine a location. That was a rather fun puzzle even though it took some time to get it right. Overall I enjoyed the puzzles more than the lackluster HOS in the game. The storyline and the gameplay are what sold me on the game and those are what kept me playing. After a rather annoying start to the game it became more enjoyable as I found The City of Mists. In the end I found that this Wanderlust is a terrific game and one that I hope you will enjoy as well. As always, please try the demo and give the game a chance. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAIL OFF INTO AN ADVENTURE WITH SHOWBOAT COLLINS REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 3 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 43 Pages (This is a long game) OVERVIEW: After receiving an urgent request from your mother, Isabella, you are off to the City of Mists to take her an amulet she desperately needs. Your mother has spent her entire life in search of this mystical site, and now that she has discovered it, she wishes you to share in its secrets. As you sail away to join her, you will encounter another seeker of this city, the devilishly handsome, rapscallion Collins, who will torment you throughout the trip – mainly with his irritating personality and bad jokes. However, once on the island, you will both need to work together along with your mother and Collins’ professor, to learn the secrets of an ancient civilization who hid their treasures within a vault guarded by the monstrous Iron Protectors. OPINION: What a fabulous game! The story is exquisite. The character Collins, with his self-aggrandizing, devil-may-care attitude provides comic relief. He creates an atmosphere of levity which adds to the enjoyment of the game. The tongue-in-check repartee between the roguish Collin and Rebecca is priceless. Although the game has only three (3) chapters, it is a long game. The graphics are cartoon-like. It is a fast-paced game with many activities, including many well-designed puzzles and three collectibles to locate. My only disappointments are the HOP scenes and the inability to replay the mini-games. MECHANICS: There are five (5) levels of play including a customized version. There are ten (10) achievements, most with three (3) parts. Collect twenty-seven (27) morphing objects within the scenes and eighteen (18) morphing objects within the HOP scenes. Also collect twenty-seven (27) pillars. There are indicators on the inventory bar to indicate if a collectible is within the scene. There is an ultimate puzzle offered at the end of the game. It requires placing colored stones in a grid without any column nor row having more than one of each color. There are four (4) wallpapers along with concept art, music and video sequences. Replay eighteen (18) HOP scenes. TOOL BELT. A tool belt is provided with an assortment of tools to be used within the game. One of these is a “remote control” (amulet) to maneuver the iron robots. The other two tools are a knife and a pair of needle-nose pliers. BONUS CHAPTER: It is a prequel. Return to the week before the expedition. In this chapter, play Collins. After receiving a letter informing him that he has not been inducted into the Adventurer’s Guild, Collins is off to find fame and fortune by searching for the City of Mists. Join him on a comical adventure as he prepares for this trip. Continue to collect the collectibles within this chapter. The tool box is gone, replaced by a joke button, which, when pressed, provides an endless array of Collins’ terrible jokes. There is also another button called “Break the Wall.” There are five (5) HOP scenes and fourteen (14) puzzles. This is a long chapter which I found comical and worth the price of a collector’s edition. HOP SCENES: This is the only part of the game which I did not like. I found the HOP scenes disappointing. There are eighteen (18) scenes in the game along with some mini-HOP scenes with a small number of items to be located. For me, this could have been one of the best games of the year if Mad Head had provided a little more variety and creativity in the scenes. Most are either lists of items or silhouette. Most contain junk piles. MINI-GAMES: There are forty-one (41) mini-games. They vary in style and difficulty. With such well-designed puzzles, why didn't Mad Head provide for a replay for some of them? There are puzzles I wish I could replay from this game. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SAMPLES OF PUZZLES WITHIN THIS GAME: A. Tangram puzzle. Place irregular-shaped pieces onto a grid so that all pieces are used and there are no spaces between the shapes. B. Mathematical puzzle. Figure out the number of drops needed for each of 3 vials of colored liquid by solving a mathematical puzzle involving the liquids C. Connection puzzle. Connect the dots. Move a gem through a circular grid by visiting each node (dot) once. You cannot retrace your steps. D. Logic puzzle. Paint a figure with three different colors so no two of the same color are next to each other. E. Super-duper maze puzzle. Set up a 3-part maze (by using arrows at the side of each section) so that a ball at the top can proceed freely from the top to the bottom of the 3-part maze when a start button is pushed. Awesome puzzle F. Physics puzzle. Bullseye. Complex puzzle in which you must first turn a wheel to set the strength and another to set the angle before releasing an arrow to hit a target. 3X BONUS CHAPTER: G. Assembly puzzle. Look at five sections of rope under a magnifying glass. Choose three pieces, which, when combined would produce each section of rope H. Colorful creature. Sequence puzzle. Place scales on an armadillo’s tail as per a given diagram. I. Maze puzzle. Move two gems out of a maze by using arrows. The gems do not move at the same time. J. Switch puzzle. Switch tokens so that four rows are created with 4 items each in ascending order from smallest to largest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh What Fun It Was Playing This Delightful Game : ) I enjoyed everything about this game and I knew from playing the Beta that I would not hesitate buying it as soon as it became available ! I loved the humor, graphics, colors, storyline, music, HOPS and Mini's and even the character Collins. Please read some of the positive reviews written by my Fellow Fishies. I was tickled when some parts reminded me of my favorite old game Hidden Expedition; Amazon (which I just re-downloaded to play again (love the jungle atmosphere and corny storyline ;)
