Look, we are simple folk.

When I say "we", I mean of course my brethren, the Hidden Object Game people (or "hog people" for short).

We don't ask for much, just pretty-ish environments in which we can look around for misc. objects from a laundry list (such as: manacles, a whip, candles, an Xbox One console, heavy-duty plastic tarps, a wooden horse, tax forms, a ball gag) to click on. And that's enough to content us, really.

Sadly the art in this is pretty abysmal. Objects are resized in a way that does not make sense relative to each other; likewise, objects are fuzzy that should be in focus and conversely. The photos that the art is sourced from are pretty ugly/dull, and garish colour filters are applied liberally to make matters worse.

I understand that this was done in an effort to make the object hunting a bit more challenging, but the combined "eyesore power" of all these techniques used at the same time is just too much.

There's a game show conceit in Discovery! A Seek and Find Adventure, and that's at least a novel way to frame the different environments. They bungled the meat of the game though, letting us hog people down.

The difference between this game other Hidden Object games is that in this game you'll be playing in a some sort of game show. It's fun at first but bores pretty quickly in my opinion. The only reason I spend 4 hours with Discovery! is because i've owned this for quite a long time.

I wouldn't recommend it.

I've played this one a lot, to engage the top level of my brain while I'm trying to figure out something else with the other parts of my brain. It's fun, a little mindless, but not in a bad way.

I thought I would enjoy this game a lot, since I really like games that have you search for hidden objects, or find the differences between two pictures. But this game is hard. Objects are so well hidden, that you regularly have to use the Hint button (at no real cost). I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Probably a good thing, but THIS hard... I'm not sure.

Anyhow, I guess it can be fun with a couple of friends, but if you're playing alone, you basically have all the time in the world. That doesn't make it any easier, but it also doesn't make it any more fun. Still, you can't find a similar game like this on Steam, so if you're into these games this one is a must own.

I really liked the game show idea of this game, but it's, sadly, horribly boring.
The first show is ok, and then it's just repetitive from there.
I think the other contestants have all been lobotomized. I'd expected them to get harder to play against as you unlocked them, but they don't.
I was going to play it till the end and then uninstall it, but I lost the will to live on the second last game.
The graphical style is horrible, and makes every image look the same.
Did you ever play sims 1, and download an object which sat at completely the wrong angle, was very 2 dimensional (even for the sims 1) and the texture didn't fit the game. That's what the graphics in this game reminded me of. It's like someone gathered up all those objects and pasted them onto postcards to make this game.
I'm normally quite easily amused by trivial games, but I wouldn't play this again. There are much better HO games out there to waste my time on without regretting it.
If you like HO games and are looking for one that's a bit different I'd recommend Pickers, which is made by Mumbo Jumbo as well.

5/5 Stars. Plenty of play time from this game and the hidden objects are a challenge. I highly recommend this game if you enjoy hidden object puzzlers.

Random scenes to choose from and repeatable play. You are on a gameshow and you just gotta find the hidden objects to win. The graphics leave a lot to be desired but it is playable. Overall if you need total mindless clikcing it's a good game if you can get it on sale.

This is another one of those games that I really wish that there were a neutral rating for. It is not a bad game, but it has flaws that left me torn, and ultimately opting not to recommend it. For one, there is not much real playing time involved here, at all (though it does at least try to implement true replayability via mini games and different game modes, though over the course of the game one tends to start to learn where things are in the scenes). My total time playing it reflects a great deal of replaying after needing to restore everything on my computer, as I wanted to know what happens in the end of the game, out of simple curiousity. My assessment:

At first, the game show idea is compelling. What could be better than adding in some AI opponents to race against in a hidden object search? Yet, in this game all of your opponents were apparently dropped on their heads as children. Repeatedly. Then, even though you unlock new opponents as you progress, their level of challenge doesn't go up any. So wide is the margin with just casual play that you could pretty much put on a blindfold and play the main levels without an issue when it comes to winning against your opponents. The exception to this comes only after the main levels are completed and you play in the tournament of champions, when the level of challenge presented by the opponents seems to jump up a bit more toward what you might be expecting (or, at least what I was expecting). But, at that point, whether you'll even care anymore is anyone's guess.

The graphics and naming of objects are also a bit iffy. That is to say, while I definitely wasn't expecting much, the hidden object scenes are quite annoying to work with compared to many such games due to the almost choppy nature of the graphics (this is hard to explain, but if you look closely at the blown-up screen shots you should somewhat see what I mean) as well as the fact that items are not always named and/or depicted clearly. Something will look more like one thing while being called something else, for instance, or will be depicted in an unfamiliar fashion, thus requiring a hint or dumb luck to find.

Overall, it is an excellent original concept for a hidden object game, but it ultimately fell just a bit short of my expectations. As I said above, I'd give it a neutral rating if I could, but as I can't, I also find I cannot bring myself to recommend it.

fun little game show game about finding hidden things in scenes before your opponents. Some of the items are very hidden and you miss them easy, this game is fun I recommend.

For a Seek and Find, this one was pretty stoopid. I get the whole be different kind of seek and find, but as a game show just doesn't work for me. Uninstalled and perma banned.

Didn't play this one for all that long as it broke one of the cardinal rules of hidden object games and mislabelled a post box as a phone booth and I then realised the steam overlay wasn't working. Pretty much killed my desire to continue...

If you fancy hidden object based fun (with a handful of very short minigames) in a fast paced and competitive environment then this is probably a reasonable game to go for.

On the downside though whilst the executaion is nice, it is showing its age - the pictures suffer from being very low res and not being able to find something because it's a blur (or because it's mislabelled) is less fun than repeatedly headbutting your keyboard. When you add in no steam overlay and no achievements... it makes it a kinda meh choice. There are better games around if you want to find stuff.

Can't really recommend this Hidden Object game. Objects are not very detailed, music is annoying and colors blends together.

I am missing some suspense!

Sorry, this is one of the games that gave Hidden Object Titles a bad name. Literally it's a "Stack one HOG scene after another and make a superficial story about it" - Who don't like to be abroad, but this is styled like a gameshow and overcrowded with searchable objects.

Furthermore some objects don't seem to work correctly and the additional features of the game like achievements and characters are also only a little additional suggar instead of a cherry on a piece of pie.

I wouldn't recomend this game since it grows boring really fast, even with the game-show theme it's boring. This game is no masterpiece and on a 1 to 10 scale it will not even reach 3 points in my opinion - the artworks are also nothing special.

Buyer beware, even though I didn't encounter gamebreaking bugs (playing 30 minutes) it is far too expensive, far too boring and of course far too vanilla ... you might as well take a burger and nail it to your knee, it is exactly as painful.

Personally I would give it a neutral rating; it's not too bad, but it has its frustrating moments.

Good:
- The game show idea is great
- Mini games bring fresh ideas
- Hidden Object fans will still waste time because, you know, we have to find all the things :)

Bad:
- The graphics are very dated
- Some objects are incorrectly grouped
- Some objects are just a blur of pixels, good luck figuring out what they are

It's good enough to pick it up in a bundle :)
