Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings Collector’s Edition is a casual computer game where the player’s objectives are to explore different locations and find hidden objects in the levels. In this game’s storyline, a mother receives a painting as a gift. She hangs this painting on the wall in her son’s room. One night, she wakes up from her son’s scream and then finds out that the painting is missing. The painting has also changed. After the police offered no assistance, a certain fortuneteller tells her that she will shortly embark on an adventure. The painting scatters itself and somehow forms different worlds. The player explores these worlds to ultimately rescue the son.
There are different objectives in every world. There are three stages in the gameplay. The first stage is a hidden-object adventure. In this stage, the player needs to find the items on a list. When the item is found, it is removed from the list. The list can be in pictures and in words. This means the player needs to find the item the word pertains to, or find the item similar to the picture. The second stage is puzzle-solving. These puzzles are sometimes optional and can be played at the player’s leisure. The third stage is adventure-driven. There are objects that can be picked up and can be used later in the game.
