Forgotten Riddles - The Mayan Princess

As the Chief Archaeologist and most experienced in Mayan culture, the Embassy has sent you to investigate the mysterious demise of the last known royal Mayan family. The royal family supposedly died in 1536, yet artifacts left by the Mayan princess have been uncovered dating back to 1556 - twenty years after her supposed death. Your mission is to solve the riddles surrounding the artifacts to uncover what really happened to the royal family.

Visual effects are beautiful, very detailed and most are true to the period. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Melvin2 from Riddlers will love it! This was my first experience with a riddle game and I really liked it. I wish there were more HOGS like this. Although the storyline is good, it does seem to wander off a bit when it comes to being realistic. Neighbors talk about a ghostly figure making appearances and mysterious music playing from the opera house and you are investigating. I fought a few with trying to solve the riddles then the puzzles in the alotted time frame. Instead of a list, you must solve riddles in order to determine what you must find. AND - a biographical story line to boot! You choose a location to search for Hidden Objects, it would have been nice if the beautiful Mayan locations would have kept true to the Mayans and hadn't cluttered the scenes with modern day junkpiles, but that's not the real problem. We challenge each other to see who can find the most hidden objects with using the least amount of hints I mean the entire game was provided; 19 levels that took me over 7.

You need to choose one of seven runes, read a riddle describing the object you are searching for and find the item in the scene that matches the description. It is a little different then the other HOG's because you have to find the objects based on riddles You are only allowed 5 hints for each level. Here's where the storyline fails a bit While there are no snazzy graphics or flashy game play, I still found the scenes to be quite beautiful and intricate. I wish there were more HOGS like this. It's a simple but highly entertaining game that makes you think about the Hidden Objects you are tasked with finding. Much like the first game also my major problem was that it was way too short and I had it finished within an hour or two of buying it. Of course it's an umbrella and yes the riddles get more challenging, but if these runes were found in an archaeological dig and dated back to the 's I assure you they didn't have a pop up modern day umbrella back then! The graphics are great. I had no clue that this was a game filled with riddles. I especially enjoyed the scenes that required scene manipulation in order to solve the room.

The riddles get harder as you go along. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by BellaMorte from Enjoyable Been a while since I played this game but what I remember the graphics are great big fan of drawn graphics and the level of challenge was good. I played the timed mode and I think I ran out of time about 3 times and had to start all over. Even our 17 year old daughter asks to play it for a few minutes before she goes to the beach we live on an island of the Forgotten Riddles - The Mayan Princess of Mystery Loss 2, anyway next thing she realizes is that an hr has went by. I absolutely loved this game but I had one major downfall! I literally finished this game within the demo and it took less than a hour playing the full version to complete it. Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyla4u from Something a bit different I very much enjoyed this game. Strangely, I still recommend you at least try it, partly because of its original gameplay, and partly because it doesn't fall into the gothic-cutesy pit that most BF games do. Not a difficult game to play but enough of a challenge to keep going. The graphics are not so clear and the scenes are more cluttered than in Moonlight Sonata, but the riddles are just as much fun and the scenes are varied and interesting. Your mission should you decide to accept is to decrypt the Liong: The Lost Amulets and uncover the real truth. Here's where the storyline fails a bit Date published: Rated Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove, Sacred Grove Collectors Edition out of 5 by Pucktweety from Very fun!

Much like the first game in the 'Forgotten Riddles' series this game includes a great storyline along with a very unique way of finding clues. A refreshing and unique play on HOS. It was refreshing in the beginning, but there wasn't enough variety of tasks to keep up my interest enough to buy the game. If you are into riddles, then this game is for you. I absolutely loved this game but I had one major downfall! Visual effects are beautiful, very detailed and most are true to the period. Not a bad game, certainly one that can go unnoticed, enjoy!. Good wishes to all-have a great day Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by BellaMorte from Enjoyable Been a while since I played this game but what I remember the graphics are great big fan of drawn graphics and the level of challenge was good. But, then, that was part of the challenge. Between levels you get to play a Mini Game to unlock the next level, you rotate square tiles to create an image, but it's really easy because the rows lock down once all squares in a row are correctly rotated. More like this, please!

Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by cbilbo from Riddled with riddles I should had read the reviews and the description of this game Dragon Keeper 2. The house later became an abandoned opera house. More like this, please! So if I was slow solving the riddles and finding the objects, then I didn't have time to solve the puzzle. You are the Chief Archaeologist who has been asked by the Embassy to find out the real story of the Mayan Royal Family.

Good wishes to all-have a great day Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by tilmalene from Entertaining A very different game, diffrent from most other seek and find game. There is no "list" or "silhouettes" to search for, no, it's way cooler than that. Between levels you get to play a Mini Game to unlock the next level, you rotate square tiles to create an image, but it's really easy because the rows lock down once all squares in a row are correctly rotated. I especially enjoyed the scenes that required scene manipulation in order to solve the room. I mean the entire game was provided; 19 levels that took me over 7. I like it very much. My family and I really enjoyed playing it. It's a simple but highly entertaining game that makes you think about the Hidden Objects you are tasked with finding. But, then, that was part of the challenge. Date published: I do have to say that, even after figuring out what object I was looking for, they were sometimes very hard to find as the majority of the objects are extremely small.

  1. A refreshing and unique play on HOS. You are the Chief Archaeologist who has been asked by the Embassy to find out the real story of the Mayan Royal Family. I am really enjoying this combination of riddles and HO.

  2. It was interesting, but too repetitive both in style and repeat showings of the same puzzle screens, I left the game after a few hours because I suddenly realized I no longer wanted to live and I don't feel it deserves the overall 4 stars it's received by voters. I think this is because I'm experienced in HO games and I didn't find the riddles too complicated, but I was disappointed as I really liked how unique this game was. Strangely, I still recommend you at least try it, partly because of its original gameplay, and partly because it doesn't fall into the gothic-cutesy pit that most BF games do.

  3. You need to choose one of seven runes, read a riddle describing the object you are searching for and find the item in the scene that matches the description. It also gets less interesting when you replay it as by that time all those hard riddles before come easily and there is no longer a challenge, as once you solve the riddle, finding the item is most often not difficult at all. I got agrivated and had to take several breaks with this game. I am really enjoying this combination of riddles and HO.

  5. Some of the puzzles were difficult also. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Pucktweety from Very fun! It was refreshing in the beginning, but there wasn't enough variety of tasks to keep up my interest enough to buy the game. Unless you choose the easier mode of difficulty which gives you more time and more hints you will need to find the items within 20 minutes, but the 20 minutes must last you for the entire level, not just that HOP.

In order to find the hidden object, you have to be able to solve the riddles. The graphics are not so clear and the scenes are more cluttered than in Moonlight Sonata, but the riddles are just as much fun and the scenes are varied and interesting.
