Apothecarium is a city of scientists where the cure for the epidemic that is spreading across the medieval Italy will be found. But getting there for the cure is not a cake walk. With evil creatures and black magic undulating throughout the place it is difficult to grasp the cure for the disease but not impossible. There is a strange fellow who is roaming on the land with a golden mask on his face and a ghostly aura around him. But it is not known whether he is also after the cure or just another person in your path towards finding the cure. Still you have to find the cure and save the innocent lives.

It can be said that it is a collection of several mini-games and puzzles rather than an adventure game. You will find a lot of mini games and puzzles and you time spend with those will probably be more than you will spend exploring the physical area of the game. The hidden object scenes consists of a group of scattered things where you have to find certain items in each location. You can earn coins as you play and upgrade special features of the game such as the elixir, gear-operated machines and time accelerators through the in game upgrade shop. It is quite rare to find an upgrade shop in a hidden object game. For instance, one of the objects from the store- the Light of Truth elixir enables you to see the hidden objects for some moment. If you are smart enough you have to complete the hidden object scene before timeout. Some of these objects can be used only once and other are permanent, but they are definitely useful and add to the fun in the game.

You will be disappointed by the not-so stunning graphics and the easy mini-games. Sometimes the interface hangs mid-way, and you start wondering whether the game stopped and you lose several minutes on collecting items.
