An evil tree dragged your son into a parallel world and you are more than eager to rescue him. Follow Jimmy into a strange, magical but dangerous world in Lost Lands: Dark Overlord
Lost Lands does not have the most interesting story for sure, rescue your son from an evil force in a strange world, it seems like we have done that hundred times. Anyway, Lost Lands is more enjoyable that we thought it would be as the other aspects of the game are extremely well done. Also, the characters you encounter in the game are interesting since they are mostly fairy-tale creatures.
The cutscenes in Lost Lands are top-notch with awesome animations and actions accompanied by epic music and perfect voice overs. The artwork is nothing but stunning, the use of lightning and colors are very clever, thus, all the scenes look glorious!
Despite all the beauty, Lost Lands brings nothing new to the HOPA genre. The gameplay is more adventure-centered and is pretty easy most of the times, hidden object scenes come in different types but they are the ordinary and the tasks to be completed are nothing specially interesting. The mini-games are nice and fun, although they could have been much more challenging.
All the other necessary features are there, 3 difficulties plus a custom mode even if the game does not say so, an interactive jump-map, achievements and various collectibles. For the Collector’s Edition, all the usual gallery items are included as well as replayable Mini-Games and bonus jigsaw puzzles – the bonus chapter is up to the standard despite the fact that it is a tiny bit too short.
