The Lost Sea is a game with elements of a puzzler mixed with a little bit of action RPG. The game take place when you crash land over the Bermuda Triangle and you find yourself stranded on a mysterious island where you need to find a way to escape.

Starting off, you get to select your character from a range of ready-made generic characters They are all the same with no skills advantage or stats. When you first start the game, you are given a knife which will be your bread-&-butter weapon throughout the journey of the game.

You can chop down trees and destroy wooden boxes to find items within them such as coins, and fruit that gives you health. You will also gain experience points for killing enemies and animals that inhabit the island. These can be traded to upgrade your character stats. You will need to find hidden tablets on the island that will randomly give you a certain amount of moves that will allow you to progress though the island chain. Once you hit the last island, you will fight a boss.

Exploring the island is fun and you will come across other NPC’s on the island. Each one will have a certain skill set that will help you on your journey... Skills such as lock picking and carpentry skills for building bridges. First up, you can only have 1 with you, but you can have up to 4 at once follow you around once you upgrade your character.

The controls are easy to use and everything is easily accessible such as your map and inventory. Everything on screen has the corresponding button next to it so you don’t get confused with which to press.

The graphics are pleasing and easy on the eyes. They have a cartoon animated cell-like look. The day and night cycle is a good mechanic in game which gives a sense of time while playing it. The user interface is simplistic yet comprehensive. You have your health and stamina bar in the top left hand corner and a compass in the top right,

Lost Seas is a great little game and does offer a challenge. It’s not a hard game to get into which is what makes it easy to pick up and play. Though it is a short game, it is quite addictive and has a good replayability value in it.
