Natalie Brooks: The Treasures of the Lost Kingdom is another edition of this classic series. Once again you will be representing Natalie in a mystery adventure. This time, Natalie’s grandfather has been kidnapped with no known reason and now she has to investigate what has happened and where her grandpa is.
Beyond the story, the game could be categorized into the “seek & find” category. There are lots of games alike but this one is different from others since its particular dynamic. Instead of giving a list of items to look for in a messy scene, the game develops the story in chapters. In each chapter Natalie progress in her investigation and has to look for important items in the scenes in order to solve the mystery. In addition, she goes collecting some items to keep and use later to perform certain activities. Each scene requires you to find a certain amount of items. There are some hints available for you to use if you get stuck at any time. Of course, these hints are limited and will cost you a few seconds each time you use them.
