Samantha Swift and the Fountains of Fate (

King Midas’s daughter Zoe has undergone rapid aging and it’s up to Samantha Swift to find the Fountain of Youth.  Unfortunately, M’Alice Pei seeks the same item for Markus Payne.  Can Samantha save Zoe and put a stop to Payne’s evil plan?

Just like the last three games, the plot isn’t that deep.  There’s no character development regarding how Zoe feels about being in a strange land where everyone she knows and loves is dead.  Not to mention that she was freed in the second game and they wait until the fourth game to do anything about her.  It’s like they just remembered this plot development when they were looking to continue the series.

The game play is the same as in the last two games, collect a list of items, find two birds in each scene and collect hints in the form of lightning bolts.  Some items you have to collect using other objects you find while some can be collected when you brush other objects out of the way.

This game is simplistic yet addictive.  I give it 6 out of 10; an intriguing idea but not as well thought out as it could have been
