Gamers take on two separate roles as they help Alex and Lisa collect hidden items and reunite with each other in The Treasures of Mystery Island 2: The Gates of Fate. Instead of merely collecting objects, players must use the items to build tools and components that can be used to complete helpful projects such as repairing a bridge. There are 14 chapters in all, with each chapter offering a variety of different puzzles, hundreds of hidden objects, and a collection of mini-games; and the ultimate goal of the game is to track down four mysterious tile pieces that will help reopen the portal that took the characters to the island in the first place. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
