This is the 2nd installment of Josh Tam Mysteries. Which is G2. This time it is more of a Visual Novel format.

Josh Tam sets out on a journey to investigate the mysteries at Easter Island and to search for the lost child of his client Mrs. Flores in this Visual novel adventure puzzle flash game.
But a mystic adventure full of puzzles and riddles await him and his gang!

:::::::NOTES::::::::::::
1. Thank you to all who played through and left useful comments.
2. Yes, this is a text-based game and more of a visual novel than an adventure game, but still I do not have an option for visual novel category, so this will go under adventure
3. Special thanks to those who voted high. The higher the popularity and rating, the bigger the chance I will continue with the sequel!
4. Thanks for the Daily 5th place award!
5. Thanks to Newgrounds Admin (Tom?) for the frontpage!

Not the best thing I've ever played, but was a decent bit of fun. I agree with others that you need to include indicators in future iterations for the puzzles that give you an idea of whether or not you are doing the right thing. I had no problems with the novelization of the adventure game type. It was fun. More branching quest lines, more RPG elements maybe? Good job. Please, work on the story next time. That was my only true dislike. Keep up the good work.

This was certinately one of a few hard point and click games. I finished but struggled on it. Over all a great and VERY creative game. Well worth my time and effort. Could be a little more interactive though..

Mmm, okay. Interesting game, with some nice bits and not so good bits.

It was fun, I quite liked the characters and the setting. It was certainly something different, I don't think the text hurt it at all, although it would have been better had you made the screen larger with clearer pictures.

Music was good, story was... passable. It was alright as a game, better than quite a lot on here.

My main problem has to be with the puzzles; you give no indication about whether the player is on the right or wrong track, making it basically a guessing game. In the future, consider playing sounds or showing some sort of prompt when the player is on the right track; for instance, if they put the grass on the right rock, the rock could lower and click into place.

Some of the later puzzles were just a little baffling - the one with the mechanism didn't make sense at all, and I had to refer to the walkthrough to have any idea what was going on. Even then, I was baffled about how anyone could get that right without guessing as you give no clues about it.

Work on the puzzles, give the player more hints, and make the scenes bigger, and the next one could be a classic. Good job though, will look out for any more you make.

I'll give you 2 and a half stars. it was a good game but the puzzles were a bit, how do you say it not helpful enough to get the player to know what to do. I also agree with Radeshtka. There is to much text and not enough game play. If you were aiming for a text adventure you did ok. But If you were trying for a true adventure game i would re-look how you made the game.
