Natalie Brooks: The Treasures of the Lost Kingdom puts a greater emphasis on adventure and less on hidden object finding. Natalie Brooks returns for another adventure that isn't unlike others we've seen in this genre. Grandpa is lost or kidnapped (in this case, kidnapped) and the hero must search for something in order to get Grandpa back. Though the story sounds clichéd, it integrates well with the game play.
Natalie has three days – in order to save her historian and scientist grandfather -- to find an old treasure map, find the treasure, avoid a curse and discover secrets involving a president and ghost train. The game tells the story through comic panels between chapters and in conversations during play. Some game struggle to help the gamer stay on track with the story or keep it simple enough so it's not lost between game play.
