The year is 1890, you receive word that Professor Antoine LeBlanc has gone missing! As a renowned detective, you have been requested to find out what happened to the Professor as you're probably the only one that can find him! You discover that he was investigating the legendary city of Karnia in South Asia. You arrive at an abandoned temple (Temples of Khmer Kingdom) deep in the jungles of Cambodia. As you journey deep into the temple, your detective puzzle-solving skills are going to be put to the test! You must investigate and retrace Professor LeBlanc's footsteps and hopefully solve the mystery of his disappearance.


Right from the beginning, you will feel like you've been transported into the jungle of Cambodia! The graphics are incredibly rich, with a photorealistic 3D design. The level of detail in the images were amazing! For an app game, it was comparable to the quality you would experience on a game console! With a storyline involving temples and exploration, you can't go wrong! Especially, when it has a very "Tomb Raider", "Uncharted" vibe to it.


Since "The Lost Temples" was created by Escape Hunt and developed by Neon Play. Ltd., there was a strong escape room feel to the puzzles. It basically felt like they took puzzles that you would normally experience in an in-person temple-themed escape room and incorporated into a point-n-click app game. It was so much more than just find a lock and open it with a key or 5 digit/ letter code. There's logic involved that allows the player to literally put two and two together! Traveling through ancient temples, rooms, courtyards, cellars and more, you're faced with brain-teasing challenges that require logic, piecing together clues from items collected in your inventory, to pure deductive reasoning.


Escape Hunt is the worldwide leader in escape room experiences with game centers in 27 countries. We've played their digital game "An Enola Holmes Adventure" online and their in-person game "Escape from Akershus Fortress" while visiting their location in Bergen, Norway and they were both a lot of fun! I'm quite impressed with their ability to apply their same puzzle design creativity for in-person and digital games to an app game format as well! If you love playing Lara Croft or Nathan Drake, I highly recommend that you give this game a try for two reasons - (1) there's a free demo version that will get you hooked (as it did for me) and (2) what better way to bring an escape room experience than directly to your phone?
