      "Hidden City is a free game but don't think it is not worth playing. If you love mystery, this is totally worth a try. I sometimes play it on my ipad to awaken my inner Sherlock Holmes! Well, maybe I'm exaggerating but it's still quite fun."

      "Frustrating, but fun. It's also quite addicting. It can be a bit slow at times, but when you are finding objects it's a lot of fun. It's challenging and a good way to kill some time."

    WHAT'S THE MEANING?

    Hidden object games are a subgenre of puzzle games. In hidden object games, the player is given a list of items that he must find within a picture. The scenes depicted in these kinds of games are purposely full of visual clutter to make it harder for the player to find the items, like the popular Where’s Waldo puzzle books. The strength of these point-and-click games relies on the story, which often veers into the dark side of the spectrum. The stories inject a sense of adventure into a mostly static game.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Alice: Interactive Museum is the first hidden object game. Released in 1991 by Toshiba EMI, it was a point-and-click adventure game that was presented as a scavenger hunt. However, Mystery Case Files: Huntsville is credited with being the first hidden object game that set the tone and defined the genre. Huntsville was released in 2005, and since then Mystery Case Files have grown to include 16 other games in the series. Big Fish Studios, the game developer, estimates that since the release of the Huntsville, around 100 million people have downloaded MCF games. Hidden object games are popular in casual gaming, which in turn is the most preferred type of video game.

Also, like the feature I get to talk as well. Attractive backgrounds, appealing to the eye, draw me to certain games. I'm new to this game, so keep putting this much effort into your program. It truly is appreciated. I am having trouble with the connecting to server. I even removed the game and reinstalled and that function still doesn't work. Please look into it."

      "Neat game with good graphics, you level up quick which refills lives and thus able to play longer, I didn't give a 5th star because you have to pay for some of the buildings to be fixed in order to search them which is fine but they are really expensive and so takes time to fix it Overall I would recommend the game."
