Full Review of Hidden Object: Another Interesting Game of the Genre
As you can see from the name of this app, it’s one more game of hidden object genre for Android. I guess the developers didn’t bother with creating a peculiar name for their app and put all of their efforts in the gameplay, the graphics, and the game itself. And the game turned out to be great indeed, at least for me.
The graphics are great and quite detailed. When it comes to hidden object games, you probably want to explore locations with lots of different things and pieces arranged elaborately. At least, I do! And the Hidden Object locations meet that demand. The picture is beautiful, and the scale of colors enhances the mysterious atmosphere of the game. The score of the graphics is 9.5/10.
What is it about?
So, there are only 8 levels, i.e. 8 different locations where you have to find various objects. Once you complete a level, the next one becomes available. Although you can unlock all of them at once by paying a little amount of money. Anyway, you probably won’t spend more than a couple of hours on Hidden Object as there’re not so many levels and items to find. Yet there is this level with fishes which is waaay harder than other ones.
If we’re talking paid features, you have to pay if you want to block commercials. There are lots of them, and sometimes they interfere with the gameplay, yet it’s understandable that the developers want to make some money from their app. The thing is, sometimes an ad may cover the item you’re looking for, and that’s really distracting.
To complete the level, you have to find all the hidden objects in a limited amount of time. If you’re stuck, you can use a hint but remember that hints need some time to restore. I must say, some items are relatively easy to find while others take way more time, so the hints feature is pretty useful. And if you can’t find all the objects in the allotted time, you have to restart the level.
One minor con is that the game doesn’t always respond to your touch, and sometimes you have to tap the required object several times for the game to recognize it. Thank goodness, there is a zoom feature that lets you see and tap smaller things. Some parts of the screen may be too dark to distinguish the needed item, and that is another shortcoming.
Obviously, annoying glitches haven’t left this game out as it sometimes crashes, and there may be some bugs. But can you name even one app that works perfectly 100% of the time?
The Hidden Object app is free to play. It’s compatible with Android-based devices, so you can find it on Google Play. The score of the gameplay is 9 out of 10!
To replay or not to replay
There are three difficulty modes for each level: easy, medium, and hard. The harder the mode is, the less time you have to find all the objects. If you choose the easy mode, you have 3 minutes, and on the hard one, you have only 2 minutes. Also, you earn stars after completing every level and to get the maximum number of stars you have to play perfectly in every mode. So, even though there are not so many levels, you may want to replay some of them to get as many stars as you can.
Also, the set of the objects you need to find varies from time to time, so it may be interesting to replay anyway. The score of this point is 8/10.
Is it good?
To sum up, Hidden Object is a great free game of its kind that you can enjoy for a couple of hours. I like the detailed graphics, the cozy atmosphere, and the intuitive gameplay of this app. There are not so many levels, and small glitches may interfere with the gaming process. So, if you’re a hardcore fan of hidden object games, maybe this one won’t impress you so much, but I believe it’s worth a try anyway
