Faraway 4 : Ancient Kingdom works the same way with your typical point and click escape game.

The mechanics are very simple and easily manageable. Despite the simplicity of the game, Faraway 4 : Ancient Kingdom will provide you a decent progressive challenge which will put your puzzle solving skills on a test.
It might share lots of similarities with typical escape games but Faraway 4 is still unique on its own ways. First of all, the game is on a portrait-style perspective. You can interact with most of the objects on the screen. Players can break vases, collect objects and puzzle pieces and interact with various mechanisms. All actions are tap-based. All items that you collected will be placed on your inventory box below the game screen.
Hints and Hidden Notes
I believe an escape game will never be completed without hints to help you in the process. For Faraway 4 : Ancient Escape, Hints can be used infinitely. However, there is a catch! In order to use hint, you have to watch the rewarded video in return. This is actually a clever way for the developer to input the ads without annoying the gamers with random pop ups. When using hint, the game will give you a brief walkthrough on what exactly you should do to solve the puzzle.
Aside from solving puzzles, the players are also encouraged to gather notes that are randomly hidden in the game. These notes will not really affect the game progress but collecting them all could be an achievement. The notes normally contains various form of poetry and stories in line with the game’s theme. Sometimes, they could also be used as clues. These notes are randomly hidden in the game. They can be found inside the bases, underneath the boulder and more.
One of the interesting features of Faraway 4 : Ancient Escape much like the early games on the series is the unique graphics. The game takes you to a stunning yet eerie atmosphere of the ancient civilization. Maps are adorned ancient buildings that are merged with seemingly modern mechanisms. The transition from one stage to another is quite impressive as well.
In order to reach a new map, you must find the diamond-shaped tablet which you must place on top of the exit gate. This will activate the portal and will prompt you to a new map. The game is also accompanied with well-fitting music which makes the game even more engaging.
Faraway 4 : Ancient Escape is truly a decent escape game. If you are looking for a challenge that will put your puzzle solving skills on a test, this game is definitely a perfect fit.
