Description

At the end of their first adventures, Lisa and Alex were sent back several decades into the past after entering the mystical portals known as the Gates of Fate, landing in the late seventies and late eighties respectively. Now they both must work together to return to their own time, with Lisa writing clues and storing equipment for Alex.

The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Gates of Fate is a hidden object game combining some elements from traditional point-and-click adventure titles, with simple puzzles created with the casual audience in mind. Most of the time, the objective is to find and collect all the pieces of a series of items displayed at the bottom of the screen. After being reassembled, these objects have to be dragged and dropped on specific portions of the scenery to perform an action or complete a task. The hint button at the bottom-right corner shows the position of one of the required pieces when activated, but takes some time to recharge after use.

Mini-games appear occasionally, taking place on a separate screen with a self-contained puzzle where the player has to directly manipulate pieces or mechanisms to solve them. These include variations of concepts implemented in several other games, like a Pipe Dream clone with bomb circuits, a picture puzzle with pieces of a shredded newspaper, and other similar challenges.
