The Mystery of the Crystal Portal

JohnBThe Mystery of the Crystal Portal from Artogon Games is the latest casual title to bend the genre mold and create a hidden object/adventure hybrid. This one succeeds where many other efforts fail, however, by ramping up the level of intrigue and by building relationships between items you find and objects on the screen. The result is less of a hidden object game and more of a still-screen adventure title... with a few missing items.

mysterycrystalportal.jpgJournalist Nicole Rankwist receives a strange note from her father who has discovered an artifact with the power to change humanity. When he goes missing, however, Nicole must find pieces of the Crystal Portal key and retrace his steps by visiting exotic locations and searching for clues by sifting through mountains of items and solving puzzles.

At the bottom of each screen are a number of slots initially occupied by question marks. Each of these represents a "container item", an object somewhere on the screen that needs to be activated. Clicking on these container items brings up a menu similar to the action menus in old-school adventure games. By finding items shown on these menus and dropping them onto the container you open new spaces on the screen, activate parts of the scenery, or cause some other minor change. To complete each scene, simply find all of the container items and their associated "minor" items.

Sometimes you will have to fill a certain container item to reveal an item needed for another container, so solving puzzles is rarely straightforward. Most objects are fairly easy to find and aren't hidden in strange areas or color-masked to blend in with the background. This creates a much more intuitive experience and makes the game feel more like an adventure than a seek and find title.

Analysis: Hidden object games have become the new match-3 of the casual realm, but thanks to titles such as Azada, Cate West - The Vanishing Files, and The Mystery of the Crystal Portal, old-school adventure philosophy is creeping its way in, and those classic games have survived decades of gaming for a very good reason.

mysterycrystalportal2.jpgVisually, The Mystery of the Crystal Portal is quite impressive, featuring seven unique locations (each with several scenes) rendered in gorgeous detail, complete with animated areas, moving pieces of scenery, and crisp sound effects to boot.

One drawback to The Mystery of the Crystal Portal is the simple ability to, well, cheat. Most hidden object games penalize you for clicking where there are no items to find. The Mystery of the Crystal Portal does not, opening up the path of randomly clicking all across the screen in order to find items. The use of container objects cuts down on the usefulness of this "cheating", and you have unlimited use of the hint feature if you're willing to wait for it to refill, so it's not as big of a temptation (or spoiler) as you might think.

The rules are somewhat laid back, with no penalties for random clicks and no time limit to put you in a frenzy, and the care put into the visual layout of every scene is evident. With the variety of puzzles, interesting minigames, and strangely compelling container item system, The Mystery of the Crystal Portal is a surprisingly robust hidden object/adventure experience that should not be missed.

Great game, I like the original part with the containers.
For ho-lovers it might be a bit short, but at least the ending gives also the promise for part2 :)

Yeah I liked it :). I liked that there was a hint button incase there was an object that I just couldn't seem to find. Or sometimes I used it to find a Key Object ;)

Excellent game concept but needs to be longer. Reflexive is okay but I can get games for 1/2 price at Big Fish.

Yes, that's true Corona, that is if you enjoy the crap that Big Fish has been releasing lately. They seem to be in a bit of a slump. I hope that changes soon, I like Big Fish very much.

That being said, the Casual Gameplay store has many excellent games (like Crystal Portal, Eschalon, Harvest, Gish, Wik, Gumboy Adventures, etc.) that are not available at Big Fish.

And if you're a Mac user, there is much to rejoice about in this list of Mac games. Big Fish's support for Mac leaves much to be desired.

The art is definitely superb on this one, and as a big plus for me, the objects for the most part match their surrounding thematically - okay, there's a pumpkin in Russia, but no random alligators.

The ending is somewhat less-than-stellarly written; but what really did not go down well with me was the range of supporting characters, which were in turn Ornamental Oriental, Some Old Woman, Magical Native American, Magical Negro, and apparently Magical Russian. Bad writers, sit.

What I really dislike at this game, is Nicoles face.

The story says, that she and her father were close to each other and she looks.... annoyed, bored.
As if she thinks: Who cares, where the old guy is, I just have to look for him, because otherwise the people would wonder.

In comparing with the rest of the graphics, Nicoles face is an imposition.

Just my 2cents ;)

I truly enjoyed this game. The graphics,3D effects, and motion were very good. My only criticism is that I felt the ending was anticlimatic. As Nicole was standing before the portal, I kept waiting for something else to happen, and, of course, it didn't as this was the end (so far??). Great way to have users purchase the next installment!!!

@ Guest

You are absolutly right, the items you are looking for a in the cave behind the bars.

The correct order for looking for Items in Africa is:

First Shamans Hut

Then Airfield

Back to Shamans Hut

Enter the Cave


For me it sounds, as you started with the cave



But the cave does only open, when you click a lever inside the shamans hut. The lever you only find, when you finished at the airfield and there you wont be allowed to go, before you finished parts of the Shamans hut first.


You can also have a look at the walkthrough,when you scroll to the top of the posting area :)

If this does not help you, please let me know :)

Ok, I'm a bit confused.
When you can't move them, then they are at the right place (normally). Which rune is missing?

I thought that the secret room only opens when you have all runes. Are you sure that you have them all? (see walkthrough for locations of each rune)

If none of this helps, I would think you can only do two things. Make a new profile and start all over to see it happens again and if so, contact the dealer you bought the game from and see if they have a clue what happened or how to solve this.

@ Rosey

I don't know exactly where the pickaxe is, but a few items are hidden.
One item is in the vase on the right side. Another item you will find when you click the colored 1 in top of the vase. Another one when you click on the little hole in the stones under the well.

If this does not help, you might try the hint. It renews itself after using it.

What kind of problem do you have?
With the runes? Please read the answers me and another guest give.

It doesnt matter, when you started in the cave. Its just that you dont come that far at the beginning :) - The walkthrough is the shortest way through the game (as I see it, lol). Doesnt mean, that it is not working other wise.

If the runes are not your problem, please let me know and I'll love to help you.

Just some suggestions:
You have the prism also?

Try just a restart, maybe that will solve the problem.

The worst case: It's a bug and you will have to contact the site where you bought your game.

Did you have a look at the walkthrough?

1. Click on the plate (container1), located on the arch at the right side of the screen and find all items - Click on the mask (container2)in the left upper corner and find all items
2. Click on the skull (container3) on the trunk and find all items. To find the last item of the the skull - container, you have to click the big drum in front of the scene. It will disappear and give set free an item.
3. When done with the skull, pick up the prism (1)
4. Click the mask (container4), located left handed of the whickered basket, right side of the screen. To find the ceremonial handle, you have to click on that green leaf bunch, right side of the first container mask. You are done here for now, go to the airfield

Kayleigh,
Thanks but I'm still having trouble. The only containers I can click on are the trunk on the left and the mask on the floor to on the right. For each of these I cannot locate one item. I believe they are behind the sheet, but whenever I click there it tells me I have to open the trail first - but I don't know what that means. So the airfield is locked and I can only get to 2 containers but I can't complete them. Also - can't find any prisms in the cave. Can you offer any help?? Thanks!!

The cave is not that important at the moment as most of what you can do there is only available after the airfield and after you open the grate in the hut, but again- not before the airfield is done.

I made two pictures for you. Here you see the three containers you have to open... the skull is the last. To get the last item of the skull, you have to click on the drum after you collect the shell

I couldn't see all the items and it's been a while since I played the game, but the you will find the missing items with the hint - which renews itself after you use it.

The one prism you can find will appear after you finish the skull.

I just purchased this game and I love it. I am having a problem. In Africa secret room, I needed 6 prizms and I only have five. It showed that I had six. I can't go back through to pick up one more. I had to have 6 to get to this point. What do I do?
Thanks Eliz.

On the prism secret room I only have five pieces. Is there somewhere the sixth is hiding, or is it because I am playing demo?

I am stuck on the bit where you have to put the weight on the scale thing! It's really confusing! Help please!

@Guest
Did you have a look in the walkthrough? It's explained there

Goal is to get the scale in balance.
1. To do this, take as many weights on the left part of the scale till the pointer on top of the scale shows exactly at the red line.
2. All weights have different weights. Figure out which weights you have to put on the scale.

If it's not random (I don't know for sure), use all weights, except the second and the last one

3.When you are done, you will receive the first part of the Crystal Portal Key.

I have read the comments about the runes in the Guatamelan clock. I have all the pieces where they belong and still the clock is stuck. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to replay the game all over again?

I am stuck with trying to open the trail in Africa. It keeps telling me to tap the drum but it just keeps eating up my hints...HELP!

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

JIGuest, here's what you should do

to open the trail you have to go to the airfield first. To access the airfield, you need to find and tap the lever base in the Hut area (probably that's where the hints are pointing, however, you can check it with this screenshot ). Now that you have access to the airfield area, you can search there for the lever to unlock the trellis in the cave. This lever can be found only after all the key objects in the airfield.
Once you have the lever, you can use it in the shaman's hut to unlock the trellis.

Hope this helps!

@JLGuest

That sounds strange! I followed the tips listed above and I have completed the puzzle. The crystall has started glowing and the door has opened. Are you sure that you have gathered all the rays? You can compare your screen with this solution. Does the game just freeze now?

How do you get into the airfield in Africa, I have finished everything in the hut and the cave that it will let me but the airfield isn't unlocked. Did I miss something?

Kayleigh, I could never thank you enough for the prism hint. I would have had to quit the game in frustration because none of the other tips made any sense. Your screen shots were a sanity saver - thank you so much.

Hi All
I've completed ALL the levels. Ya it's an old game but I only got to know about it and played it a few days ago. I managed to complete all the levels and all thanks to Kayleigh for the prism tip.
I got stuck in the prism section. Saw the light but still can't make out what to do with it. The rest are a breeze... Good luck to those still trying to finish the game. This game is really marvelous!!
