Legend tells of the city of Ys, a cultural jewel built on the coast of Brittany. While it prospered under the rule of the wise king Gradlon, the golden age of Ys didn’t last forever. Fierce conflict between Queen Tehda and her sister led to catastrophe and the entire city was swallowed up by the ocean. The king barely escaped, but both sisters drowned within the city walls. It is said that King Gradlon still stands by the shore, waiting for the city to rise up from the ocean floor and reunite him with his beloved.

Ratings and Reviews
This "Myth" Rises To The Surface!
With the exception of My Brother Rabbit, this is, in my opinion, the best game released under Artifex Mundi, as publisher, this year; and many accolades go to Sunward Games, the developer.
This fantasy-based game delivers a well-constructed storyline that logically develops as it progresses. Along the way, the storyline is bolstered by a cast of engaging characters who help advance your goals; and all the while, you fight off an evil vixen and her army of menacing monsters that try to thwart your efforts. The settings diversify in appearance to avoid dullness, as you travel through lush forests and climb perilous rocky cliffs that jut out over angry seas. The graphics are mostly satisfactory, although some scenes are not as sharp and clear as other scenes.
The outstanding gameplay steals the show here. The inventory usage is unique and highly interactive, as you often assemble objects, such as statues. Even the tasks are creatively rendered and frequently require some thought to complete, persuading me to think about the next move.
The HOS are cleverly executed and sometimes challenging in that the items can be well hidden. They are mostly composed of interactive word lists, but there are some other formats, such as a "Find and Use" type. I like the twist on the story-driven format in which you manipulate items within various panels in ways that are distinct from each other. The plethora of entertaining puzzles vary in type and difficulty; they are intelligently integrated into the storyline to solve your objectives. I like the one in which you press the stones comprising imprints of animals paws in the numbered order as detailed on the depicted animal shapes. There are maze puzzles in which you find a path to the other side, avoiding obstacles. There is also a multi-level puzzle in which you first arrange, in order, tower pieces in accordance with a view through a microscope; then you turn the tower pieces to their correct sides in the appropriate order. On the flip side, the collectibles are placed within plain sight and couldn't be any bigger in size, thus denying one any challenge of discovery.
Overall, this is a well-rounded, glitch-free game that conveys an interesting storyline and offers top-notch gameplay. The playtime, inclusive of the bonus chapter, is of average length. I strongly suggest you give the free trial a spin.
Good game, extra items to search for, decent plot, good graphics and a good mix of hidden object scenes & mini-games. Good game, just not great!
The Myth Seekers 2: The Sunken City by LynxMinx
Note to Deana M: Welcome back!
Although I generally enjoy games developed by Sunward, this particular game left me feeling somewhat frustrated. This game was a mix of mythology and archaeology, which is a favorite sub-genre of mine. Still this game fell short! The storyline was unoriginal, there were touchscreen sensitivity issues and the gameplay seemed dated. The collectibles were extremely simple to locate. The HO puzzles consisted mainly of wordlists. The mini-games and puzzles definitely had a variety but none were novel or unique, and many were of the boring rotational genre. Most were extremely easy and presented no actual challenge. The graphics were pretty but lacked visual acuity. Each location had enjoyable tasks to accomplish; however there weren’t a plethora at every location. The game did have a bonus adventure; however the total gameplay time was quite brief inclusive of said adventure. I wouldn’t say that this was a terrible game but it was only a little better than average. Therefore my true review will be 3.5 stars. I deducted stars mainly due to touch screen sensitivity issues when trying to utilize inventory items, and for the banal nature of the game in general. I certainly hope that the next offering from Artifex Mundi is from a different developer for a change.
Happy gaming everyone!
