The rise of Hidden Object games
By: Anna Grace on: Aug 29, 2012
We’re sure you’ve played these type of games once or twice. Or maybe you’re addicted to them, we don’t really know. But what can’t be denied is that these games have achieved a huge success over the last few years and continue to get hundred of downloads every day.
Two developers that has stood out are G5 Entertainment and Nevosoft Inc, given most of their apps are hidden object games, all very entertaining and with cool graphics.
Besides that, we have to say that most of these games are pretty similar between each other, especially the ones that are created by the same developer. Nevertheless, they are all fun and enjoyable; some might even scare you a little.
Paranormal Agency is one of the most popular games, where the task is to help a detective investigate Haunted Houses and discover eerie phenomenons. The app has many levels to play and several types of different activities, so you will definitely enjoy this supernatural adventure.
Letters from Nowhere is one of the latest hidden object games we've reviewed. The adventure this time is about helping Audrey find her vanished husband and discover who's sending her mysterious letters. Only a few episodes but a thousand items to search, really worth it.
Special Enquiry Detail revolves around a murder and finding out who did it. 12 levels and typical cop movie dialogues, so it guarantees a fun time. Really popular and one of the most enjoyable ones, as it resembles thriller stories and not so much supernatural tv shows.
Million Dollar Adventure is brought to you by Nevosoft Inc and follows the story of Sandra, a girl who has problems trying to remember things that happen before a car crash. The gameplay and graphics are really similar to the others: realistic and engaging. This one includes mini-games that unlock some parts of the app.
Kidnapping is the main event that takes place in this hidden object game by Nevosoft. This one has a supernatural story behind, since you, as the investigator, dream about clues which will help you solve the mystery. The app also includes mini games, besides the typical look-for-items gameplay.
This one comes from Game Insight International. In Mystery Manor is a typical hidden-object game that allows the user to advance through the rooms when having found all the necessary items. The storyline is great, the interactions help you follow the game and the graphics are particularly good.
Bloody Mary Ghost Adventure is a horror-hidden-object game created by MMz Tech and that is actually different from other similar games. The story is nothing new or original and the looking for items is entertaining as well, but what stands out is that i has a real time system gameplay. Basically, you can only search for items and solve the mysteries at a particular time of the day, especially at night.
That feature is also annoying if you don't have time to play all day, but makes it pretty special anyway.
