Since the dawn of time, four mythical Genies harness the inner power of the four elements; water, fire, air, and nature. That is until the fifth Genie appears, one who holds the power of darkness, and disrupts the world equilibrium. With your father being kidnapped by this mighty force to another realm, can you learn the secrets behind your dad’s mysterious past and save him from the looming danger?
Enchanted Kingdom: The Secret of the Golden Lamp is the seventh installment in the fantasy hidden object series from Domini Games. Much like the past chapters in the series, although the storyline is not entirely fresh, there are enough interesting elements (in this case, the mythology of the Genies) to keep the storyline engaging. To top that off, the characters in this game are quite distinctive and likable, which is always a plus when it comes to hidden object adventure titles.
Lately, Domini Games seems to be making strives in the production department and they might have just reached new heights with this game. The colorful graphics could not have been clearer and more stunning. All the locations are creatively designed and generously sprinkled with magical special effects so that they look truly enchanting and otherworldly – even the hidden object scenes look gorgeous! There is no question that the game nails the audio components as well. The music is rousing with hints of fantastical elements, while the voice-overs and the sound effects are appropriately and effectively utilized.
When it comes to the gameplay, Enchanted Kingdom: The Secret of the Golden Lamp is a mixed bag. On one hand, many of the hidden object scenes have imaginative concepts and the puzzles are usually entertaining. On the other hand, the adventure gameplay is beginners-level easy and at times illogical, the hidden object scenes are not as challenging as they could have been given how large and obvious the objects are, and the helper feels pointless and derivative.
Nonetheless, Enchanted Kingdom: The Secret of the Golden Lamp is worth playing just to take in the sights alone and it helps that the gameplay is all-around smooth, regardless of the lack of complex features. For advanced HOPA players, the game should take around three to three and a half hours to complete. The Collector’s Edition also comes with additional features; a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, cutscenes, replayable hidden object scenes, replayable puzzles, achievements, multiple sets of collectibles, morphing objects, and a laboratory.
