Mystic Diary Lost Brother is a hidden-object game in which you must help a magician find his missing brother. Throughout the game, you will visit different pages of the diary searching for clues that help you find your brother and solve the mystery. In all the pages, you will find a main scene that you must inspect for clues or items that you can place on your inventory for future use and also sparking places that represent a hidden-object game or puzzle. Once you find all the objects on the list, you are granted another object that will be placed on your inventory. The items that are placed on your inventory can be combined to find a more useful object. The objects to find in each sparkling sector will appear in the form of silhouettes, showing their appearance, but no their real size. If you get stuck, you can always use the hints, which are unlimited but take some time to recharge.
Unfortunately, the game only includes one mode, which is untimed, and certainly doesn't pose too much challenge for advanced players.
Regarding the graphics, they are nice, but not really detailed. Sound effects are OK and the music is nice, but very repetitive,
In short, Mystic Diary Lost Brother is just another hidden-object game which certainly doesn't offer anything new or impressive, but definitely deserves a try.
- Lots of puzzles and mini-games
