5.0 out of 5 stars Find the hidden objects!!! 9 Jun 2009
By Neil
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first hidden object game for DS so cannot give you a comparison against others games on the market BUT suffice to say this is great.

There are two different ways to play the game either Adventure, takes you through all levels or Free Play, allows you to access already played locations from the adventure mode.

Concentration is required as some objects are quite well hidden and not easy to spot but you do find a great sense of satisfaction when you complete a level.

As you move through various levels you can gain extra time and hints so if you really are struggling with an object you can get a pointer as to it's hiding place.

Great fun for kids and adults alike, my 8 year old daughter thinks it's fantastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok. 9 July 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As hidden object games go, this one for the D S works well. The storylines are really thin, but just about hold the individual puzzles together. Most scenes are clear enough to see all the objects, though I did find I had to put the D S brightness up to max to stand the best chance. Some objects and one or two screens were extremely hard to work with though.

Interspersed with the hidden object scenes are other puzzles such as spot the differences, basic jigsaw puzzles, traffic-jam-type puzzles where you have to move blocks in order to get a specific item from one side of the screen to another. These could be frustrating as sometimes objects still moved even though the stylus was pointing at a new object - I suspect this may be due to the (in)sensitivity of my rather old d s screen. But even with the screen cleaned and buffed, it was quite hard to pick items up first time, and I often lost time through the number of attempts it took to pick up certain objects. Frustrating. And the chances are that when you return to a given scene, you will also be looking for a high proportion of the same items within that scene that you looked for on your previous visit - if you see what I mean.

Another thing I particularly didn't like was that unlike most p c-based games, once an object was found, it just dimmed, it didn't disappear from the screen.

Also on my minus list, are the way the mini-games are presented. Make one mistake, or have one spot on the D S where your stylus isn't picked up correctly, and you get a game over. Having said that, you can immediately return to the mini-game without a penalty. And if you don't like the mini-game, you can just click forward to skip it - but you can't return to it to complete it later.

5.0 out of 5 stars My eyes hurt!!!! 8 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing this for just over a week now, and have only just got to the Berlin levels of the game. For the size of the DS screen, it is a pretty good attempt at hidden object games, something I didn't think would be possible on the handheld device.

Seeing the other reviews where they commented on it being a female lead - I don't have to dress up in skirts to play it, so it doesn't matter! :0)

And for the one who said it was just clicking around, they obviously didn't play it very much, as after the first couple of levels, you lose time if you click randomly around the screen!

The hidden object levels do get a little repetitive after a while, but my old eyes can't handle playing for too long, and the different modes give more variety than similar PC games.:0)

Highly recommended!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played this game previously as a 1 hour download, and i enjoyed it very much then.
Even better, you can play it on your DS/DSi, easy to play and very enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars mystery 24 Sep 2009
By Gem
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
pretty easy game of finding hidden objects in different places. based on an island where mayan background story and then in berlin with a big energy producing machine. i found it very easy, hardly using hints and was a disappointed in the very abrupt ending. i would of expected more storieds than just the two and maybe a few harder levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game 6 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played Nintendo's "Mystery Case Files" before and I must say: That one is good as well. Like the different game modes and the big number of levels (180). The graphics are good, music is okay.
