Coming one year after the release of Legacy 2 – The Ancient Curse in 2017, The Hidden Relic is the third instalment in the much-loved Legacy series of puzzle games. In it, you play a young archaeologist tasked with finding your missing mentor, exploring the depths of a mysterious temple and finding solutions one puzzle at a time. It’s out now for iOS and Android devices.
Players might initially be taken aback by how slow-paced Legacy 3 – The Hidden Relic can initially feel, but it’s all in service of an atmosphere and story intended to test intelligence and memory skills. It’s a 3D game made in the style of classic point-and-click adventure games, where only by thinking puzzles through laterally will players have the most success.
Beautifully rendered using full 3D graphics, each puzzle in Legacy 3 – The Hidden Relic aims to engross players by providing a fair and adequate challenge. Should you ever hit a roadblock, however, and are struggling to find the solution, rest easy knowing that an in-game hint system is always there to help. Puzzles become more difficult over time, so this could prove useful.
Puzzles make themselves known room by room in the game, with the aim being to escape each one in a bid to rescue your mentor in time. Why did he come here, what happened to him, and where did he go? All this is revealed the deeper into the temple’s depths you venture. If Legacy 2 was the dark sequel, Legacy 3 is much lighter by comparison.
Fancy yourself to be a master puzzle-solver? Test your wits and intelligence in Legacy 3 – The Hidden Relic’s atmospheric story. The game is available to download from Google Play and the App store now.
