Many years ago an ancient statue of the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet was stolen from the private collection of Lord Barrington Smyth.
This statue was not only said to be one of his favourite pieces, but was also believed to have great powers, bestowing great fortune upon its owner.
There had been no information regarding the location of the lost statue, until recently Lord Barrington heard rumours that a statue matching Bastet's description is now in the possession of a local Mystic, who lives deep in the National forest.
Lord Barrington needs you to enter the Mystic's Cabin to locate and retrieve the statue, and so return it to its rightful owner!
Do you dare to enter the Mystic's secret domain?

Can you rescue a cat from a witch?  There's a lot to like here, theming is adequate for the environment and some of the puzzles are cleverly done (there's one I should have seen, I really should have seen it!).  There feels like there's a difficulty curve as we raced through the early sections only to get bogged down in the latter stages of the game.  Clue system was delivered by a TV and was great throughout.

Overall an enjoyable game, that has some really nice puzzles. A great game for newbies looking to play something a little more complex.
