Grandma was right.

Nobody really believed her. Not even you, her favorite grandchild.

But she was right. And more so than you could ever imagine.

The city before you, deep in the mist shrouded forest, can't be found on any map. It shouldn't even exist. Though it's been asleep for a long time, you feel a mysterious power begin to awaken from the ruins around you.

Legend has it the civilization that built this place could somehow control the seasons. But nobody listens to legends.

Nobody except Grandma.

And she was right.

You look again at the artifact she gave you. Close to this lost city, it almost seems alive in your hand.

The city does exist. It's real.

Could the secret magic, powerful enough to change the seasons, be real too?

Love it

I need help please. I cannot find the floating box as the hint says for'scene 22. I can't go further in the game until I find this. please anybody. The clue says to use the rusty key to open a floating box in screen 22 in the spring. There is no floating box in screen 22 that I can find. I have changed it to Spring & have examined other nearby screens and no floating box. There is only the open empty box in the lower half of the picture. I love the game and have completed other series of the Maple Tree adventure game series and am more than half way through another one. But in this one I am stuck. Please developers I could use some help here or if anyone who has completed this puzzle would sure appreciate your expertise. I mistakenly presses only 4 stars. The game deserves 5 stars. There is no problem with the game but user error. I the user am apparently having eye problems or trouble seeing boxes. Or this box is floating too fast, high, low or too much as I am missing it entirely
Thank you anyone

Great Adventure Game

This was a high quality game. It took about 3-4 hours to play and it was fun. The puzzles weren’t hard but the tricky part was figuring out where to go n what season you needed to be in since you can’t use the map to jump. There is a hint button that takes 10 minutes to refill. I only needed it once because I didn’t realize you could switch seasons! Overall a really well made game. That being said, I got this game for free due to their new game being out. I wouldn’t pay full price for this as it’s a bit outdated but that’s to be expected as it came out in 2012. I may buy their latest game though because this is a great game and the developer has probably fine tuned his craft over the past 7 years. Kudos devs!

Fun Puzzler

I am a fan of the Fire Maple games. Lost City benefits from the forethought that went into making the puzzles fit in with the story and the environments. Solving puzzles by changing seasons is clever, and so are many of the puzzles themselves, which are at a medium level of difficulty (just hard enough to make you think, but far from exasperating). This game, like all of Fire Maple’s games, is a welcome relief from the gloomy, creepy settings and atmosphere in most of the games in this genre. The music is pleasant and the visuals are colorful, which makes for a stress-free puzzle-solving experience. The journal and the map are useful features, as well.

Overall, this is a nice, calm way to spend a few hours, and scratch that puzzling itch.
