Game Overview

Mike and Isabel have returned for another hidden object adventure! This time things begin in the jungles of ___, where they are tracking down a crashed plane. The plane had been carrying some stolen artifacts, but our heroes aren't exactly here to recover them. Instead, they're trying to find a powerful treasure: the Jaguar's Eye Codex. Created by the [aztec/mayans], this codex is supposedly able to give people superhuman abilities when read. Naturally, this sort of magic makes it very valuable and potentionally dangerous, and certain undesirables are already after it. There's just one catch: the codex was torn into two portions. Finding the other half is going to be a journey, and one that hits closer to home for Isabel than she expects! You see, the legend of the codex turns out to be tied up in her family's history. In order to solve the riddle of the scroll, some family secrets need to be untied first. But that's enough of a teaser for the game's story. Gameplay wise, things are more or less the same as they were in the first game. Each chapter of the story involves searching through three hidden object scenes for clues, and then a minigame or two where you solve some puzzles. Once you've finished with the minigames, it's a quick scavenger hunt through the chapter's scenes, and the chapter ends. Unlike the first game, you're on a timer; you have roughly half an hour to complete each chapter. If you run out of time, the game is over, and you'll need to try that chapter again.
