The Lost City app is a beautiful adventure game where you collect items and solve puzzles as you explore the forest in search of secret magic to change the seasons and to discover the city itself.
The Lost City Walkthrough
On the bottom left corner of the screen you have a briefcase which holds the items you collect and a map. The map is helpful for figuring out where you are and helps you navigate back to places you’ve been. In your bag you have a journal where you keep notes of the things you discover and there is also a hint guide if you get stuck.
Navigation is simple. Just point to where you want to go and the screen smoothly transitions to the next location. Tap on the item you want and it goes in your briefcase. I found myself doing a lot of tapping at first trying to move forward. The hint guide was essential for me to solve the first puzzle, after that I found subsequent puzzles to be achievable and satisfying.
The Lost City is reminiscent of the old Myst game, (which I just discovered still exists and of of course is an app now). The gameplay is quite zenlike and relaxing. Both experienced and non-experienced adventure game players would find this app engaging.
