4.0 out of 5 stars Several hours of good, challenging fun 3 May 2010
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Frankly, I've never been that big of a fan of these "find the object" games - partly because I'm not very good at finding said objects - but Adventure Chronicles: The Search for Lost Treasures sort of sucked me in. For one thing, there's a little Object Finder tool available to help you out when absolutely necessary; more importantly, though, you actually need to do stuff with certain objects you find - e.g., find a key to unlock something. I also like the fact that there is actually a story that ties all of these puzzles together. You take the role of archaeologist Susan Anderson, who has just received the long-lost journal of true hunter T.R. Benson from a mysterious character named John. Even as you are out pursuing such unimaginably rich spoils as the Great Civil War treasure, Napoleon's treasure, ancient Egyptian and Mayan treasures, and Blackbeard's long-lost booty, Susan is trying to figure out exactly who her mysterious new benefactor is - and what he really wants from her.

Not surprisingly, the game is not as lengthy as most players would hope for. You have six puzzles per treasure hunt, so that's a total of thirty different puzzles. Don't pay too much heed to those "30 bonus geo cache missions," because those are not separate missions at all - you just have one geo cache object to find in each of the regular puzzles. The fun isn't over once you complete your five treasure hunts, though. The game doesn't really make this all that clear (I only discovered it because I wanted to go back and find the one geo cache object I had missed), but you can replay all thirty missions - with all new objects to find - in order to become a "master explorer." All together, you're looking at several hours of reasonably challenging and fun adventuring, and that's pretty much all you could ask for from a game such as this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Average 27 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The title says it all,pretty much your average hidden object game. I completed this fairly quickly, the storyline was OK and the linking pics were cartoony, but good of its type.

By tirial
This is a fairly standard hidden object game, with a light-weight plot to hold it together. The aim is to go from place to place, finding all the hidden objects which provide hints to a final location where several great historical treasures are hidden. The chapters are linked by comic book strip sequences that advance the plot. The game has a hint feature, in the form of an item detector with infinite uses but which takes time to recharge after use. Several tools can also be used to access hidden items and areas within each level. It's short - maybe five hours play for one hundred percent completion - and only the item detector saves it from being too frustrating for younger players. On the other hand, it has no time limits, so it can be played with a group watching the screen and chiming in.

This only gets three stars because of the paper-thin plot, but also because of a glitch we encountered where we occasionally had to restart the game to be allowed to use tools we had just picked up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hidden object game with puzzles. 12 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an un-timed hidden object game with each level set in different parts of the world. It is yet another outing in the `Escape from the Museum' series.
There are 5 levels in total with six games in each and you can come out of any area and got to another within the level at any time if you want.
The artwork is variable with some scenes being well drawn and others less so. Most pictures are not overcrowded but the scale and size etc of individual items has been altered to make it (sometimes very) difficult to locate some things.
There is no hint button but under the tools section is an item detector which has to be run over the screen and the intensity of the beeping sound and flashing green light let you know when you get near to an object. Once found most items will automatically be collected. The detector also recharges relatively quickly.
Other tools include a brush, hammer and lighter. At times a rotating gear symbol will appear over something in the scene which indicates interaction is required either with one of the tools or some other item. Clicking on the gears causes a pop-up box to appear with a clue suggesting what action to take.
In addition to the objects on the list you can look for a Geocache item in each scene but the only clue to it's identity is a riddle which you can get by pressing the Geocache button at the top of the screen. If found then the item will automatically be sent back to the Geocache room in the museum which you can visit at any time.
There are no mini games as such although some of the set actions require the player to work out what to do and how to do it. These puzzles are relatively easy although a few require a little more thought than others.
