[prMac.com] Beirut, Lebanon - Games and Learning run hand in hand many times. Games can be used as tools to encourage learning and curiosity for knowing more about a wide range of subjects. The imaginative environment and challenges within games can encourage players to develop a good set of skills and competencies, as well as develop mental abilities.
Ancient Mystery is a new iPhone and iPad game released by Think-Grow. Ancient Mystery is a game of analysis, intelligence, and thought. It consists of a number of intellectual challenges that take the player on a journey to uncover a hidden wisdom, while relating to themes in history, philosophy, mythology, and art.
So, What is the hidden mystery and the wisdom behind it? Ancient Mystery depends on solving a number of riddles and brain teasers, to take the player on a deeper and further quest, to uncover a great hidden truth.
The user is urged to follow a secret 'code' that connects Plato Socrates, Myths, Dragons, Greek Gods, Ancient Philosophies, a Cave man, the beginnings of civilization, Astrology, and many jewels of wisdom from different thinkers of different ages. Players must spot the clues, survive the challenges, acquire the objects of wisdom, uncover the big puzzle, and unlock the chamber of secret teachings.
The tools to be used are wits, knowledge, friends, and a favorite search engine to overcome the obstacles of nature and the limitations of the obvious. The player will Discover, Think, Read, and Learn as this ancient and thoughtful magical quest takes them to different challenges of observation, intelligence, insight, knowledge and wisdom.
"Even dry and trivialized truths can gain amazing power when we view them in a new creative and practical light."
Ancient mystery is a game in the iTunes application store, available for the iPhone and iPad and iPod touch. The game was designed to be educational, interesting and fun to play. It offers many different intelligent aspects that most games in the iTunes App Store do not provide. The 'Hidden Secrets' Sections offers in-depth explanation for some of the icons, symbols, and items within the game. A hidden mysterious 'code' connects all the game's elements, and the player is invited to discover it.
Ancient Mystery challenges both the intelligence and knowledge of players. It can be quite difficult at times, and the clues can be 'cryptic'. But all this is part of the learning... With real head-scratching, and search for answers, the player learns many new things, sometimes related - and sometimes not - to the game's Story. Two Levels of Hints can be used within the game (making it 'Easier' and 'Easiest' respectively) if the player gets really stuck.
