The Mystery of the Dragon Prince is an adventure game that requires users to solve puzzles in order to advance.
Players step into the shoes of Anna, a normal woman leading a mundane life, until one day a letter written centuries ago arrives in her name. Anna is invited to an old castle and quickly finds herself knee deep in a mystery she's determined to solve.
The Mystery of the Dragon Prince requires players to solve puzzle games of varying levels of difficulty to advance in the game. Some of these include memorizing sequences, locating certain items or arranging pictures into the correct order. Although not terribly difficult to complete, some of the puzzles can get a little repetitive or be time-consuming in a way that might make more action-oriented players lose interest.
The graphics in The Mystery of the Dragon Prince are good but not spectacular. The Mystery of the Dragon Prince's imagery is very reminiscent to games you would see in the mid to late 90s in terms of quality and detail. Most of the game takes place in still frames, with more detailed insets being where you complete the puzzles. On very rare occasion, an action frame is included, although these are brief.
Interaction with other characters in The Mystery of the Dragon Prince is done via text that appears on the screen. Oftentimes if you click on a character or an object repeatedly, you're bound to get repetitive responses. Many conversations or text pop-ups contain clues that you'll need to solve future puzzles as well.
The Mystery of the Dragon Prince is a fun game for lovers of older, more traditional PC games.
