NEED a new mobile distraction that isn’t Facebook? Fortunately, there’s a whole host of worlds waiting for you in the Google Play Store.
Android owners have tons of free and paid-for games at the fingertips – but the sweetest pastimes are paywall titles that you can get for free.
Games that are stuck behind a paywall often don’t have ads – a privilege most users have to pay for.
This ad-free ‘mind-teasing puzzle adventure’ called Lost Treasure 2 previously cost £3.99 to install – which is quite pricy for a mobile game.
However, it’s currently free in the Google Play Store.
It’s a classic point and click adventure puzzle game, where players follow clues, hidden trails and discover ancient temples built by long-lost, tree-dwelling inhabitants.
The treasure hunt game takes place on a newly discovered archipelago of islands in the Pacific Ocean not far from the Galápagos Islands.
There are a whopping 89 game map scenes to follow – though players say they binged Lost Treasure 2 fairly quickly.
Lost Treasure 2 has secured 4.7 stars out of 5 across nearly 1.5k reviews in the Google Play Store.
One reviewer called the app “a lovely little puzzler that’ll likely take you several hours of play to complete.”
“While it definitely isn’t perfect – the hints are largely useless unless you pay the .99 to get the videos, and several of the puzzles could stand to be a little more clear in what they’re asking you to do – it’s a fairly solid point-and-click adventure with 80 or so scenes to explore.”
Another wrote: “A good puzzling, reasonably priced, point and click adventure, if a little short.
“Perhaps there is a need to move things on though as there is still a sense of déjà vu about it all.
“But should be entertaining for first timers. Ultimately a decent time waster.”
