Katrina is an apprentice sorcerer at the Magic School. One day, she receives a
letter from her brother and fellow student Roger, describing his search for
the missing Professor Frobos. Troubled by recurring nightmares, Katrina
decides to follow her brother to aid the investigation and help elucidate the
_Magic Encyclopedia: Moon Light_ follows the same basic design of its
predecessor, mixing hidden object and adventure gameplay mechanics. As the
heroine, the player has to visit locations around the world, presented as a
series of mostly static screens. The objective is to find and click on the
scattered pieces of objects, to assemble and store them inside the inventory
for later use.
The bottom interface shows several segmented pictures of the broken objects,
with each collected piece adding a new part and gradually reassembling them.
The complete objects are stored in the inventory at the right side of the
screen, from where they can be dragged and dropped on logical places on the
scenery to solve puzzles. Some sections of the location have glimmering lights
to indicate a zoomed view available, usually containing one of the missing
pieces. The hint button shows the position of one of the hidden pieces, but
takes some time to recharge after use.
Some of the pieces can only be obtained after using an inventory tool or
solving one of the puzzles. The puzzles take place on a separate screen, where
some sort of mechanism has to be manipulated directly to solve it. These mini-
games are varied, with logic puzzles about ordering cards, concentration, and
other more original challenges. They can be skipped after a few minutes with
the arrow button at the bottom.
