  • Summary: Get ready for an archeological dig. In Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins, you'll discover clues and follow a character-filled storyline that will lead you to a long-lost Mayan ruin. The game features 18 missions and 9 DS-only locations through which you are challenged to "find" over 90 hidden objects per scene. You can also unlock additional gameplay modes by locating bonus items such as Jade Masks and Mayan Glyphs. The game includes four mini-games featuring unique stylus-based controls and high score leaderboards, an interactive journal and bonus content. Expand

    Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins is a solid casual game from PopCap, master of the genre. It doesn't offer anything new, but it is presented well and includes some genuinely addictive gameplay.
  2. Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins isn't particularly amazing and neither is it much of an adventure, but it is an inoffensive and quite absorbing little game of hide and seek that presents a simple premise with stylish and pleasant visuals, an appealing theme and a solid gameplay mechanic, at a modest price to boot.
  3. The lack of grouping levels does it a real disservice, and once again that it's a remix of an old PC game with a new title isn't enamouring. But the same hypnotic power is present here, and even now, having played the stupid thing to death, I've a horrible suspicion that if I loaded it again I'd end up playing all over again.
