This game has been one of my favorites since it was originally published. It's so nice that they have come out with a version for MAC. When it was first published it was only available for a PC. It's a simple game in that there is no vocal dialogue--you must read everything, and the music is nothing special. But that really does not distract from the game. The story line is thin, but it drives the game. A young student of magic gets an urgent message from her older brother and sets off to find him. This journey takes her just about everywhere, from exotic India to the wild west, from a graveyard to ancient ruins and everything in between. This is one of those games where the more you click, the better. You have to find pieces of items until you have a whole, and some of those pieces are very small and well hidden. The graphics, colors, and locations give you lush scenes. The mini-games cannot be skipped, which is perhaps a drawback, but they are not that difficult. Items found in one location are often used in another place, which makes the game more interesting. Overall, the scenery, graphics, and devilish hunt for hidden objects makes this a must play.
