From developer Sunray Games comes Mystic Diary: Lost Brother, a hidden object adventure that is far too short to be worthwhile. Clocking in at around three hours of gameplay tops, the game has an interesting storyline and a fun hidden object aspect that, if longer, would have made this a recommended game for any hidden object fans.
The story involves two brothers, one who is lost, as the title implies. The brother who is not lostÂ goes looking for his archeologist sibling, Gustav. The not lost brother has magical powers, albeit supposedly limited, and he finds the Mystic Diary, which allows him to teleport around to any location, provided he has a photo of it. The ending is expected, but still feels unfinished. There seemed to be leanings towards a bad guy who tore up a photo in one level, but there’s no reference to anyone other than Gustav and his magical brother looking for the book.Â We won’tÂ spoil the ending, but it’s a decentÂ attempt at a twist that falls just short of believable.
