Grandma was right.
Nobody really believed her. Not even you, her favorite grandchild.
But she was right. And more so than you could ever imagine.
The city before you, deep in the mist shrouded forest, can't be found on any map. It shouldn't even exist. Though it's been asleep for a long time, you feel a mysterious power begin to awaken from the ruins around you.
Legend has it the civilization that built this place could somehow control the seasons. But nobody listens to legends.
Nobody except Grandma.
And she was right.
You look again at the artifact she gave you. Close to this lost city, it almost seems alive in your hand.
The city does exist. It's real.
Could the secret magic, powerful enough to change the seasons, be real too?

Well done and fun
The Lost City is a well done adventure/puzzle solving point and click. Fire Maple had their work cut out for them on this one due to the story premise. The four seasons are rendered really well in all locales. and the puzzles aren't too difficult, but you may scratch your heads over some of them and need the hints. This game and his others have been downloaded a bazillion times which proves there's a big demand for games like this that are beautiful, fun, and casual (!) in the gameplay dept. Check out his Hidden World game, the same genre, which is also a winner. Four stars instead of five because it gets a little old hoofing it back and forth between all the locales and the seasons, but I'd give 4.5 stars if I could. 😉
If you liked the room and the room 2 and myst style games this is the lite version of those
It's a find your way through the puzzle game. It isn't terribly long, but you'll get a few hours out of it. For the price that's a great deal.
They have a demo if you're not sure.
This game would be suitable for children also as it has no truly complex math puzzles and while there is a sense of calm mystery the game has no menace to it. There is no violence or death in this game and if they truly get stuck the game allows you to ask for a hint every 10 minutes or so. The hints are rather helpful also. Such as grab this on this map # in spring.
Great for families
Gorgeous detail and lots of puzzles make this clever app a winner. Yes, you do need to be patient. You won't find items or clues in order but you aren't supposed to. And yes you have to go back,around and thru different scenes often. But the slower pace is one of the things that we liked. My only complaint is that we were able to finish the game without finding all the scenes. (We think - we didn't have all the numbers filled on the map). And once you get to the end you can't go back and finish without resetting the game and losing your progress.
