Summary: I bought this game to fill my time until another Professor Layton game comes out. The game is an OK substitute - it has various mini-games to solve, and an entertaining enough story. However, it is not anywhere near as good as the Professor Layton series. The puzzles are not nearly as challenging, but in some cases that is a good thing. It is a good game to relax with or take your mind off your other problems, as it will entertain you but not be overly taxing mentally.
Summary: Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins For Nintendo DS Basic Reading Required E rating: good for all ages This is a family game that is a little misleading from its title and brief description. I was expecting a game where you travel from place to place, gathering clues and figuring out puzzles. It turns out that the game is nothing that I expected. The game is more like I Spy, with a few other games thrown in.
Summary: When I first started this game, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had played MillionHeir which I really enjoyed, and was looking for something similar. At first this game was comparable, but after you have solved their group of puzzles and searches, they keep repeating the same puzzles and search areas over again. The repetition quickly becomes boring. The search portion does add a few different items each time, but this really doesn't help.
A game for avid puzzlers, but not as amazing as the title claims.

Summary: You'll find this to be a decent game at best. Not spectacular. Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins is a puzzle game with 18 missions to complete. Each mission involves finding listed items hidden in a background by clicking on them. Here's a quick rating breakdown: GRAPHICS: 6.0 Nothing to write home about. Decent graphics that help in gameplay.
Summary: Hmm. Will finding hidden objects in various scenes on my DS help me when it comes to finding my car keys in the fridge or the TV remote in the bathroom?? Probably not, but the brain workout couldn't hurt! My husband and I both played this game nonstop for a couple of days. The graphics in the puzzles theselves are excellent. Trying to find the hidden objects was a challenge because there were so many different "layers" that the object could be hidden in.
Summary: This game is an electronic version of I-Spy type books, in which a person has to find hidden objects. The graphics are very good, especially for such a small screen. However, the game play gets rather boring, especially if you play for long periods at a time. This game is interesting in that it will ask the player to find an object, and it can either be that object, the word, or a clue to help you decipher what you are to find. And that can change from screen to screen.
