The Mystery of the Crystal Portal

Why spend Easter hunting for hidden eggs when you could be hunting for hidden objects?

Listen, I know an egg is an object, but it’s late and my back kind of hurts, so that’s as clever as I’m willing to get. What matters, anyway, is that G5 is making one of their most popular hidden object games—The Mystery of the Crystal Portal—available for free through April 1, 2013. Makes no difference if you’re an iOS, Mac, Google Play or Kindle Fire gamer, you’ll pay nothing for puzzles that look like this:

The Mystery of the Crystal Portal

The Mystery of the Crystal Portal is the winner of the first annual Great Game Awards (Seattle, July 2009), has spent over 1,000 days in Top 10 charts of the leading casual game portals, and has been in the Top 10 grossing iPad games in 61 countries.

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. The game is developed and published by G5 Entertainment under license from ARTOGON.

The Mystery of the Crystal Portal 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
