When I first saw this seafaring adventure game based on Classical Greek lore, I thought it would be cool to give it a try. You chose from different heroes, and build up a fleet of ships, buying and selling goods in the agoras at different ports in the Aegean Sea, and even do a little piracy. You buy and sell ships, like triremes and other battle and cargo ships from the time. There are also quests, but after a time, it was hard to find out where the quests were supposed to be.

This game is a true classic and has been around in one form or another since 1987 when it was made for the Commodore 64 by MicroProse. The game has come along way since then and has been updated with 3D graphics and smoother game play. Much of the game is the same as it was in its initial release but now has a mini dance game and better turn based land battles. In all this is one of the best versions of the game so far with ports of it and the old one going to smart phones and pads. How far Sid Meier, Firaxis and 2k Games takes this title is still to be seen but I doubt that they will let such a popular title like this die and fade away. I am sure it will go to see “One more time”, if not more, if you forgive the pun.

This is the first in a series of hidden object puzzle games that feature two redheaded kids, Nelly and Tommy, and how they become professional treasure hunters. In Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold we first meet Nelly, the older of the two kids, and we learn that she’s been having dreams about pirate ships and buried treasure. As Nelly is exploring around the house one day, in which we help her do, she finds a chest with a map on the top of it. She goes to the derelict house nearby to find her little brother, Tommy, and there they find more clues to the map and learn that their grandmother was a pirate. What a cool grandma! The first part of the game looks to be set in the 1920s, and we do know that LaFitte, the last of the great pirates was still pillaging as late as the 1840s, so the timeline is plausible. There are still pirates out there today, as we know from the recent news, but this deals with finding treasure from the Golden Age.
