Pleasant Puzzling

If you like point and click puzzlers, the Lost Ship should prove satisfying. The puzzles are mid-range in difficulty, and there are solution hints scattered around the game (and, as with other Syntaxity games, always keep an eye on dark wall patches, loose floorboards, and the like for clues; it’ll save some frustration). The puzzles are plentiful, but be prepared to do a lot of backtracking and wandering if you don’t want to spend the money to upgrade to the “fast map” feature. Overall, if you like this genre, this is a decent way to spend a few hours.

I like the Syntaxity apps. While they’re not at the level of the Room or House of DaVinci games, they scratch the puzzle itch just fine. If you’re new to Syntaxity, I’d recommend The Enchanted Worlds or The Mystery of Blackthorn Castle.

P.S. I take it from older reviews that this game used to be pretty short. It’s apparently been updated, and now the map is just as large as it is in the other games.

Worth waiting for

I always liked The Lost Ship, played it a number of times, but as others have commented it was already finished just as I was getting into it. Too short. This newest version adds another island, reachable by canoe, and a fort just down a short path from the ship (which no longer factors in this second half of the extended game).

I have to say that the new locations are beautifully rendered and fun to traverse. The new puzzles are more challenging and unique than the existing ones. There are a few that I solved only by accident and would not have been able to solve on my own because of a new (to me) arrangement of the clue icons across a horizontal surface. Even when I had the puzzles “solved” (by accident) I still could not make head nor tail of the cryptic clues.

Aside from that, this puzzle adventure app runs smoothly and without a hitch. A mature child could play and enjoy this game, perhaps with the aid of a savvy grownup, or a modicum of luck.

The people at Synchrony are VERY good at this kind of thing, and from what I’ve seen, probably the best.

Good but SHORT

This is a good intro to the Syntaxity games if you want to get a better feel for how to play these games. The other games are much longer and I played them first before I played this. Definitely recommend all the games but start with this one, the puzzles are challenging, but this story is a bit lacking for me. But being that it is shot, it gives a good intro to how they they set up and structure their games. All if them are very similar in style and puzzle, so once you get the hang of one, the others will be less challenging.
