20,000 Leagues Under The Sea PC Game Review

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by Legacy Games is a hidden object PC game based on the Jules Verne novel and the movie. Pierre Arronax, a scientist enters the submarine of Captain Nemo and becomes prisoner. You may read the story or the journal as it’s shown in the game, but you can bypass it even within the game by clicking to continue to the next scene.

The scenes are mainly the inside of the submarine and the ocean floor, but as the game continues the searching increases with difficulty. Quizzes and puzzles are also included to break up the hidden object play. One of my favorites were the Find The Difference games.

The images are quite difficult to find even from the beginning in part because you don’t know what they look like (you’re just given a word or phrase to search) and in part because they are hidden so well. For example I didn’t know what a “pair of scales” was until I relented and used the hint box. The hint box is rechargeable and can be used as often as you need it, however you do have to wait between guesses or finds to use it again. So this helped me not become frustrated. In fact once I began to understand the wording better, I kept at the searching longer and left that hint box alone!

There are some surprises within 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which keeps you entertained. I won’t give them away so that you can enjoy them too. I chose not to read the story and was able to navigate easily through the game. The excitement kept me going for more even though it was time for me to go to bed. Yes, it is addicting.

I suggest trying the free download game first to see if this game is your preference. The full download is $14.95. Available from Legacy Games. System Requirements: PC

This post was written for the Game Review Network as part of a program for Legacy Games, who supplied the game download  for review.

  4. Greetings! Can I use some images from your page for my degree work?

  5. I enjoyed this game! It was a nice break after playing ROTS, Schizm, & Reah. The puzzles are a 4 (out of 5) so my brainpower had a break. The environment was dark, but then if you’ve ever been in a submarine you know that they tend to be dark. There were a few timed sequences but they gave you plenty of time to do things – they just added in a little suspense. The storyline was uncomplicated – you find yourself in a vessel controlled by an AI & you need to get out. Yes, the finding & picking-up of objects was a bit frustrating, but you quickly got used to where to place the cursor. I can’t comment on the music – I always turn off the music so that I can concentrate on hearing the sounds in the environment. The graphics were beautifully done & didn’t look computer-generated.
