    Lost Artifacts is a Time/Resource Management Adventure Game.

Claire is your expedition leader, taking a chance at an ancient map she found in her incessant studies. She wanted to be an active Archeologist and here's her chance! The Natives of the lost Tonauak tribe need your assistance though, but not all of them are happy to see you! The game overall is about time and resource management, creating an array of strategic point-and-click levels. The levels aren't overly complex like most resource management games, keeping things to a minimum like wood, food, metal, and gold. Once and a while you'll get something extra thrown in, but it's nothing huge. An example is sometimes you'll need to rebuild some statues, and cobbling a bunch of stone up won't do, you'll need a priest, which is acquired by fixing their temple. Each of the tasks that aren't simply gathering will consume some of your resources, most of the time gathered along the way to the task. You'll clear paths and upgrade buildings to produce more resources. Two things drive this forward. First is a list of objectives at the bottom of the screen, these are what you need to do to progress. Second is the timer on the left of your screen that slowly ticks away, reducing your star rating at different intervals. The tasks are repetitive, and I never felt challenged by any of the stages. What this game does it does well, but it may not be for the serious gamer. Expand
