Experience the Travels of Marco Polo - a historical Point & click Adventure for the whole family!

Genoa, 1298. Author Rustichello da Pisa shared his cell with a Venetian captain who spoke of a thousand and one fabulous lands. As a writer, Rustichello could not remain indifferent to the snippets of fabulous stories told by his new friend. He managed to convince him to tell his life story. And that is how Marco Polo, back from 25 years of traveling, began recounting his adventures. From his Genoa prison, the Venetian explorer remembers his travels: Venice, Acre, Jerusalem, Armenia, the Himalayas, all the way to the palace of great Kublai Khan.

The Travels of Marco Polo is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, different, adventure game. Not your average point and click style game! I found this game very different from other games I've played. I really liked it because I had to actually interact with things to solve puzzles to move forward. The scenes are very clear and the story is intriguing. I liked the boxes that gave me the historical facts on the items I picked up. I found it very educational. I know many people who play this game will not like it because it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other games. But I believe the developers of this game did a fantastic job of putting it together. If you are looking for something different and challenging (and are a history buff) I highly recommend you give this game a try. If you aren't sure you want to buy it right away play the free trial then make your decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game but I can;t find the vial!! I like games like this, they make you think and provide a challenge that is outside a normal hidden object game. Meanwhile - does any one know where the vial is?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you enjoy adventure light .... Despite what another reviewer mistakenly referred to as "old" point and click adventures, well, surprise, there are MANY new adventure style games which are highly admired and extremely popular and the style is not going away anytime soon! Albeit, adventure games are not as popular here as many customers at this site prefer very casual gaming and in particular, hidden object. That being said, this is a delightful short but very sweet casual, adventure-light game with a few hidden object scenes within. The puzzles are challenging and, like most adventure style games, no... there is NOT a lot of hand holding and spoon feeding involved, yet more so than most main stream adventure games, thus the "light" label I've added. I am thoroughly pleased to recommend this wonderful little game that actual has an interactive storyline to offer that has a beginning, middle and end without running into chaos and nonsense which so many games appear to lean toward lately. The only negative remarks I recall are a couple of misspells and one ingredient which was supposed to by thyme but was actually rosemary. Overall the game was a pleasure to play and once I got into it, I had to play it straight to the end. Oh and btw, also despite reviews that there was no voice acting, there actually was occasional voice cuts between main scenes which were superbly, appropriately and professionally done... and, yes, the balance of the game was reading [gasp!]. So if you enjoy well-developed storylines, good [static] graphics which are beautifully drawn, as educationally focused adventure games with a twist, as well as challenging puzzles, you will want to buy this wonderful little game. Enjoy and happy gaming! btw: due to the preview video being directly over my review area, I am unable to edit... I apologize for any errs in advance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came for the name, stay for the game As it says in the description it's more of an adventure/point and click than a hiddden object game. I was interested in the story of Marco Polo, the game was indeed appealing to me. The story line is pretty nice. I also really like the puzzles. I didn't finish the game yet but it's, for now, a pretty good purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE CONQUERS ALL This game held my interest the whole time I played it. It was worth the effort to find a walkthrough so I could get past the harder parts in order to finish the game. Marco Polo is in prison in Venice and the man in the cell next door records Marco's memories of his many world travels and exploits. To get the full impact of the game, a familiarity with Marco Polo's is helpful but not essential. The game moves all over the world with excellent graphics depicting the exotic locations Marco visited. In the game, during his many travels, Marco meets several women who play a big part in his life. His relationship with the great Kublai Khan is cemented when he finds a love potion that allows a beautiful princess to love the Khan instead of Marco. Another rescues him and his friend from the Venetian prison. I played without sound as usual. This was an issue with the game, as the sound would not stay off. The audio controls in the game did not work and I had to turn off the sound on my computer. I kept coming back to the game over a period of several days but it still let me with the feeling that it is not that long a game. Having to completely exit the game to access the walkthrough was also annoying. I found the game to be a nice little gem in all the other cookie-cutter games currently available. But always try before you buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Game BUT.... Although I am enjoying this game, I have a few complaints: 1. The hint button only works for some scenes. 2. The task button gives you incomplete information. 3. If you get stuck on a scene, good luck! There are no walkthroughs for this game and forums seem nonexistent. 4. The hidden objects list text and items to search for are much too tiny. If developers must make the text and items so tiny (without consideration for farsighted gamers), then they should include a magnifier as a search tool. Anyway, right now I am stuck at the task of getting wine for the monk. The hint button is inactive in the cellar, the task button doesn't give any useful information about how to get the wine and empty the cup. I've tried everything possible to no avail. Therefore, until someone else figures out and shares the info, I can't keep playing this nice historical game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Very Enjoyable Game ... Very Nice Graphics & Sound With Very Fine Detail Without All The Glitz Of Special Effects ... The Game Is Very Enjoyable, Lots Of Text To Read (Or Skip) With A Nice Narrative ... A Few Odd Ones (Looking For Silver When Asked For Gold & Looking For Rosemary When Asked For Thyme) ... Well Worth The Voucher I Parted With ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice vintage adventure :) I like this game! It's not a classic hidden object game, it looks like old adventure point&click I played in my youth ;) There are a lot of riddles and puzzles, but just few hidden object scenes. The mini-games are fun even if some of them are too hard, the cycle of the moon is one of them! The storyline is interesting and music is very nice! I finished the game in less than 4 hours and for me, the principal fault of the game is the subite end.
