News: DinerTown: Detective Agency and Hidden Expedition: Everest!

Today, Big Fish Games released yet another new hidden objects game!


Overview

  • Style: Cute, cartoony; light-hearted detective work
  • Hidden objects scene graphics: drawn
  • Timed?: choose between timed and untimed modes
  • Hint system: unlimited, slow refill
  • Music: jazzy; works well with the style of the game
  • Theme: Bernie has always wanted to be a detective, and now is his chance
  • Objects per scene: varies; some scenes have you piecing together broken objects and dusting for fingerprints
  • Extras: finding the police badge in a scene adds extra time (in timed mode) or points (in untimed mode); some objects can only be found by looking through a magnifying glass
  • Penalty for wrong clicks: yes, for clicking too quickly on the wrong things
  • Mini games: place items in a correct sequence; simple suspect deduction game

DinerTown: Detective Agency brings the much loved Flo out of her time management habits and into the hidden objects genre. Her friend Bernie has enough money to buy a detective kit and pursue his dream of becoming a PI. Flo agrees to help him solve the cases that pop up in DinerTown.

The game is light-hearted and cute, which is a pleasant break from the dramatic mood commonly found in hidden objects games. DinerTown: Detective Agency also follows in the tradition of some of the better hidden objects games in that you aren't just finding stuff all the time. You get to work at some different activities, which I think is essential in a market full of competing hidden objects games. Anything to create variety is good, and this game delivers.

I enjoy the Hidden Expedition series. This game has lovely scenes and makes use of inventory. I also liked the secret item feature, which allows you to locate special unlisted objects. You will need to work quickly if you want to reach the peak of Everest before the other climbing teams! I highly recommend this game if you like Hidden Objects games. Today is your chance to get it for $2.99.
