Attractive visuals and level variety could not quite make up for the technical difficulties present in Fin and the Ancient Mystery. However, given the approachable price point and mild replayability, this game might be worth a quick playthrough for fans of platforming games, assuming depth is not part of your gaming pursuits.

Fin and the Ancient Mystery will keep you playing for hours trying to get 100% on all levels. Honestly, this game was a lot of fun to review, it had a decent story and fun puzzles. For the price, it's a no brainer to pick up and not regret.

This was yet another game that on the surface appeared to be highly playable. I just could not overlook the simple missteps and lack of story, no matter how mystifying the visuals were. This game is another prime example of a developer overlooking the minute in favor of glamour.

If the developers tightened up Fin and the Ancient Mystery's gameplay, it could be a rather enjoyable 2D action RPG.
