The Cluefinders Reading Adventures Ages 9-12: Mystery of the Missing Amulet is a computer game initially released in September 6, 1999.

It was included as a bonus disc with other titles, such as The ClueFinders Search and Solve Adventures, The ClueFinders: The Incredible Toy Store Adventure!, and The ClueFinders 3rd-6th Grade Games, and it was also released as a standalone disc.


The game begins with the ClueFinders investigating a meteor crash site in the Sierras. When Joni touches the meteor, the ClueFinders are mysteriously transported across the galaxy to the far-off planet Millennia. Joni, Owen, and LapTrap find themselves separated from Santiago and Leslie. The three of them are approached by a figure, who introduces herself as Princess Malveera. She explains that she brought them to the planet Millennia to stop the evil sorceress Malicia, who is draining the planet of its life, and has also imprisoned Leslie and Santiago at a volcano called Mount Valdrok.

Princess Malveera instructs Joni, Owen, and LapTrap to find the two halves of the Amulet of Life, and bring the amulet to the volcano to free Santiago and Leslie and restore life to the planet. The planet's inhabitants, the Sorrens and the Doldreks, hold clues to the location of the amulet's pieces, but they must be freed before they can help. While exploring the planet, Joni and Owen must also collect ThermaGems and LavaRocks to power the planet's machines.

As Joni and Owen retrieve the amulet halves, they start to unravel the mystery of Millennia. They discover that the Amulet of Life is actually a dangerous object that was purposefully broken, and that Malicia had deceived them all along and was tricking them into finding the amulet for her, so she could wield its power. Joni and Owen set out to Mount Valdrok to rescue Santiago and Leslie and destroy the amulet.

When they reach the peak, they are confronted by Malicia, who orders them to hand over the amulet. Joni attempts to throw it into the fires of Mount Valdrok, but one of Malicia's minions flies down to grab it and drops it into Malicia's hands. Malicia aims the amulet at the ClueFinders and attempts to use its power on them. The amulet emits a ray towards the ClueFinders, and in a split-second decision, Owen uses LapTrap to shield them from the ray and reflect it back onto Malicia, who is sucked into the amulet and trapped. All of her minions revert back into Sorrens and Doldreks, and they thank the ClueFinders and tell them that the amulet is their only way to get back to Earth. They decide to entrust the amulet to the ClueFinders, and have them promise to hide it away once they return so that no human may be tempted by its power. The ClueFinders accept the promise, and upon returning home, they give the amulet to Socrates for him to bury.
