About the game:

Meet Nicole Rankwist, a journalist for a small paper in New York in the late 1920's. After making a huge archeological discovery, her father mysteriously disappears! Nicole finds his diary and sets off on a quest around the world to track her father down and unravel this perplexing riddle.

As Nicole retraces father's steps, she will visit seven exotic locations which have animated areas and immersive sound effects. Striving to unlock fragments of the Crystal Portal key, players will search for hidden objects and solve unique and intriguing puzzles. The seek and find aspect of the game requires players to first find "container items", which show a menu with more searchable objects. In each location there are special items– pieces of puzzles for mini games which lead to unlocking a partial key for the Crystal Portal. The Mystery of the Crystal Portal has neither time limits nor penalties for random tapping, and there are time-based hints available.



Key Features:

    <*>7 Picturesque Settings <*>22 Levels and Mini-Games <*>Loads of Brain-Bending Fun <*>Use pinch to zoom in and out to find all objects <*>Free hints when you are stuck or buy them to speed up your progress
